southland.  if you are not watching this show, you're wasting your life!  i am serious.  this is fabulous work.  i'll just keep saying it until you all get over here with  me. 

the big bang theory
is a big bang of fabulosity.  every single time.   i'm kind of waiting for sheldon and penny to make out (never gonna happen).

supernatural just gets better and better--they've taken a page or two from buffy about story arcs and character development and this year is awesome.

bones is just delightful.  it makes me happy. 

ooh dollhouse.  man, i hope they don't yank it because it also just keeps getting better and better.  

i just discovered in treatment with gabriel byrne and it's hitting on the brilliant side of things.  it's like watching a small play every ep. 

still making my way through svu which has completely broken my heart at this point.   and i can't stop watching it.   someone shoot me now and send elliot stabler over to take care of me, please.


and that's it for me and my weekend (and i even made it out of the house to be all social 'n shit).  how bout you guys?

OMG!!! You like Sheldon/Penny?!?!? You must join sheldon_penny. I co-mod it and it's awesome-sauce!! Fabulous fanfic and tons of great stuff. S&P is actually BY FAR the largest BBT fandom out there. It's like LoVe vs VD in terms of fandom. Yeah. So we have hope.

ok i'm sleepy now, get out.
oh wow! that's so cool--i haven't trolled at all for fic (though i've kind of been wanting some) since i figured it would all be leonard/penny and, you know, meh! thanks so much for telling me about it.

Re: ok i'm sleepy now, get out.
Yeah, no. If you go to fanfiction.net, like the first four fics are L/P and some L/S, but all the rest are S/P. AND the actors and producers are being asked about it left and right now. Uh huh!!!

Sheldon/Penny is awesome. The way they're being paired up left and right on the show I can't imagine that the chemistry is escaping their notice. Poor Johnny G. But seriously, Leonard is very sweet, just not really right for Penny.

Man, Bones is my no-worries show. No worries about marriages or stupid producers or anything else that will halt those two getting together. It's just pure fantasy and the show knows. It just wants to give people something happy to watch every week. Two people who really like each other.

Oh, SVU. Read some fic. It helps to know others are just as dedicated to rejecting DW's reality and substituting their own.

sheldon and penny is total love. it's always amazing how the fans see the stuff the show runner miss completely, dont' you think? um, sound like something we know?

and yeah bones just takes all the worries away. you know both stars are pushing for the chemistry to be real so the whole show is behind bones and booth eventually being together. and that's, yeah, like a huge sigh of relief. and a warm blanket on a cozy bed.

lol re suv. i am reading fic. like you wouldn't believe. the recs page you have is like manna from heaven. i finally saw burned last night. which was out of order in my dl'ed eps list (so there was weird hair continuity with liv) but that ep nearly killed me. literally, i was clutching my chest during the stoop scene.

so is dick wolf's spin that they are just 2 people who really care for and respect each other and romantic love just doesn't enter into it? join me in calling bullshit, won't you?

Oh lord, I don't even know what Dick's spin is. He really likes the family man angle, and I mean, I can see that they've got Stabler so tied down now that extricating him would be really problematic. I can see that. That's why I tend to be on the side that says El/Liv will never happen. Because they should have let Stabler get divorced. The complete 180 they did on that situation, after the ENTIRE ep of Burned, where Kathy GOES TO OLIVIA and asks her to get Elliot to sign the papers so she can move on, and ELLIOT DOES THIS. What was the POINT?? It was an entire episode about Elliot finally letting go and moving on. And then... they just... ignored that??

I can tell you what long-time fans have told me though. They think that the show was expecting the series to end after season 8, so they were setting up Elliot/Olivia, but when the show was renewed and the contract negotiations (which were apparently brutal) were finally, and unexpectedly, ironed out, they had to then rein in all the UST. I guess. (I think Mariska's pregnancy was just really bad timing too.)

Wolf has said that he's sure people DO love Chris and Mariska, but that's not the way he likes to tell a story. Which... WHATEVER. He also seems creepily into Olivia Benson if you ask me. Hence her record of going for very un-hot old guys and not being able to sustain any sort of romantic relationship. Ick.

I'm sorry. I just completely vomited my fury all over your LJ. :P

no no you should vomit fury more often. it actually is very helpful to me to get more of a sense of the show/fandom/timeline/dick wolf's ridiculosity.

so after burned and all that re-connection and el signing the papers, they just turned right around and got el and kathy back together, right? in season 8? because i know i've read some fic where there's a baby!!! that liv apparently delivered? good god, people. hello, svu, may i introduce you to this shark over here? and now will you jump over it? um thanks.

Yes. There is Kathy suddenly deciding she wants to have sex with Elliot again, even after asking Olivia to intervene on her behalf and get him to move on. And, of course, they don't use protection because why would you do that when you already have four kids? So she and Elliot are already trying to talk things out when she finds she's pregnant so although he's been apparently avoiding moving back in, she tells him she really needs him to do that right now to help her out. So he does. And, seriously, the episode Screwed just made me want to kick him in the balls. Which... you know how much I love Stabler, but all he does is yell at Liv and be a dick. The good part of that ep was that it cemented my love of Dean Porter and convinced me that if El/Liv can't happen, then she deserves someone awesome like Dean. STUPID SHOW. NOT OLD GUYS LIKE BILL PULLMAN OR JAMES BROLIN. VINCENT SPANO PLEASE. THX.

Also, the ep Philadelphia is made of awesome. Not all fans agree with me so maybe you won't. But it's my favorite episode. I can't wait until you watch it.

man, i actually just got an image of dick wolf laughing maniacally and rubbing his hands together. he's that evil. it's hard to believe that a show would take 7.5 years of building something (liv/el and the divorce) and then throw it all in the dumper.

i will probably hit philadelphia tomorrow evening so i'll let you know as soon as i have thinky thoughts about it.

i desperately want sheldon and penny to make out. clearly, it's not going to happen, but i'm pretty sure it would be awesome and awkward and adorable. i'm such a fan of jim parsons - it's funny, if you haven't seen any interviews with him, his mannerisms and expressions are completely sheldonesque - that's not usually the case with actors; i think it's adorable.

i love when he asks her to sing soft kitty. "soft kitty, warm kitty, little ball of fur... happy kitty, sleepy kitty, purr purr purr." it's adorable in the simplest way.

penny and sheldon are adorkable! and so many people think it, there is fic!! i joined a penny sheldon comm (i think) and read a few things. much of it is pretty ok! surprisingly enough.....i totally thought penny was going to lean down and kiss him when she was done singing. but alas. there was a sweet jim parsons ausiello interview i saw in which they talk about the chemistry and he's just so clueless! says they don't play it that way. but the problem is that they obviously have chemistry. it's just there and no one can fake it or put it where it's not, you know?

i found some really cute tbbt merch at cafepress. i think there's a tote bag with the kitty song lyrics, but what i really want is a ape to robot evolution sticker for my car.

and also i really want to go home and climb in bed and watch tv!!!! but must work.
