fannish update

so aside from courtney cox being really beautiful and not looking forty and so having a slightly hard time buying her "i'm so old" bit, cougar town is funny, witty, cute, silly, has a great cast, and i laughed out loud several times.  colored me surprised!   

house is seems to be backing off from the huddy stuff which i know makes some despondent and some ecstatic....oh fandom, how you split!  but i still love me some hugh and his eyes make me go "guh!" so i'm just happy to see him regularly again.

i'm intrigued by fast forward though i have to say that having brits play american is getting wearisome.  don't we have a few actors who could pull off an fbi agent or a doctor?  or better yet, couldn't the brits just play brit?  i find myself distracted by listening to the accents, trying to catch the wrong "a" instead of just watching the shows.....

i haven't caught up on big bang theory or himym but they're waiting for me on my hard drive where all good things live.   also someone in england decided it was time to make another version of emma with romola garai and who am i not to watch anything related to jane austen?  so i've got that.  

plus there's dexter to watch and the new, although i guess, much maligned stargate: universe as well as catching up on dollhouse and bones and holy crap there are not enough hours in the day!  good thing i called in sick today!   i can definitely put my sniffly nose to good work lying here and watching tv, right? 

also have any of you discovered manna bread?  it's yeast-free and made from sprouted wheat and fruit so it's really high in fiber and protein and tastes like cake!   it's my current morning delight.  that and a cup of coffee with silk creamer and i'm in heaven. 

oh and super happy birthday wishes to a2zmom !  i hope you have a wonderful birthday!  oh and i missed skywardprodigal 's as well as a bunch of others (corellianjedi anr ixchup  your names come to mind) so consider yourself duly belatedly wished very happy!  

have a great day y'all!

Also, Britain is soon going to run out of actors to export, and who will play the parts in our next Bonnet-fest?

I'm surprised by how much I'm liking Cougar Town too - I think the fact that CC doesn't mind making a tit of herself just to get the laugh makes it much less uptight than other network comedies.

I'm looking forward to Dexter tonight, and s2 of Dollhouse has been pretty great so far - getting back into the moral implications of it all which I love ♥

Enjoy catching up - very good use of a sick day!

yeah i think that's what makes her so great...she's totally gorgeous but will do the silliest prat falls etc. she makes herself pretty real--i think that's how monica was so great too in friends.

ooh dollhouse! i can't wait to sink my teeth into that as well. and i just finished watching remains of the body on dexter--it was terrific. i'm loving john lithgow and carradine this go round.

as for the next bonnet-fest, i guess we'll have to ship 'em home to fit into those breeches! maybe that's why jonny lee miller is knightley? they've run out of the big guns? lol! he's actually doing quite well and i'm sad having to wait for the next installment.

Thanks for the BD wishes!

And Bones has been stellar so far.

yeah i've really been enjoying bones so far! they seem to be in a sweet little groove, doncha think? the plumbing scene was adorable!

Hey, long time no see! Good to hear from you. :)

I've been digging the new season of shows. Luckily I am detached from House enough that I just enjoy each new curve as they throw it at us. (Is this what it's like to not have ship goggles? A revelation!) Glee is still my big glee and as embarrassing as it is to admit, I won't watch Cougar Town because I loathe the term cougar. Lol. Is fastforward worth trying to catch up with?

That manna bread sound awesome!
Oct. 6th, 2009 05:47 am (UTC)
oh you should totally give cougar town a try...i know the term is awful but it's actually the name of the town the show is set in (i know i know tomayto tomahto) but it's really a hoot.

and i dunno about flashforward. i watched the first ep and was kind of underwhelmed by it. some interesting shots and of course the premise is intriguing but i feel pretty lukewarm about it.

i have missed my lj friends! it's nice to be around a bit more. have you watched the new stargate show? i've been avoiding the chat about it since i haven't seen it yet. but i did download it...hmmm maybe i'll watch that right now....

I AGREE. I kinda wish they'd let people be British on American TV once in a while, when they're not playing snobs or villains. I think it has something to do with the idea that your regular viewers won't be able to understand them or something. IDEK.
