I just saw BOnes!
(and dad had the oh-so-bright idea of interrumpting in the middle of an important scene for something that could've waited!)

it was such a brilliant episode!

So I've been watching TV.
There's two series in particular I want to plug.

It's funny and brilliant and all kinds of awesome. I just finished writing a review of it for a site.

It's the story of these ASBO kids who get superpowers and how they deal with them.
being british, you can expect that there's no world-saving or anything like that.
just them,messing about, with their kinda weird powers.
It has all these funny accents and interesting discoveries such as Iwan Rheon, the 'weird kid' of the bunch who's a loner and was bullied in school and now has the power to become invisible. I really like him, he's kinda creepy but I still like him, he has his cellphone with him all the time recording stuff which is kinda of chekov's gun really and he's the only one who knows about powers and helps the others and tries to figure out how to use his and he's the only one to manage it so far.

I also like Nathan, he's a smart arse but he's charming and funny and memorable and lovable after all. he's played by Robert Sheehan who is earning my devotion.

It's really short, only 6 episodes but it's really good and fast-paced and has great music and I like how it is a part of the show.

the channel has done a lot of work promoting it, creating games an profiles in many social networks,such as twitter and facebook and tumblr and youtube, where you can see all the videos simon has filmed and done.

networks like FOX should take a hint, this is how you promote a show! I just watched today, it's the inbetweeners, also from e4. it's about a group of boys in sixth form, it's quite fun actually. not brilliant, but pretty fun. I like how these boys are such losers with no idea about the world or girls and it's funny trying to see them figure it out.

3.there's one more I've just started to watch which is two pints of lager and a pint of crisps. I just saw the first ep. I'll let you know how it goes.
Loved the new primeval. made me cry in some bits.

It made me realise I'm rather low on shows to watch and obsess over.
That are still still airing and not on hiatus or have ended

TSCC has just ended (its season hopefully)
BSG ended,so has Pushing Daisies (well,technically there is a couple episodes left)
Doctor Who is on hiatus. so is Torchwood.

Basically,I'm watching Dollhouse,Castle and Primeval.
Well,there is also HIMYM and TBBT.
but these too seem on the verge on ending. same with Bones.
House is also nearly over and it's not as good as it once once.
Life is over (hopefully also for the season)

Caprica hasn't even started yet.

I'm not that into Criminal Minds, Fringe, Grey's Anatomy or Private Practice - I haven't caught up on those,I'm several eps behind but they're not so important.

I like Kings but it's not that great and it's been cancelled too.

CSI is fun but mostly on Lower Deck episodes, like the latest one with Wendy and Hodges and AstroQuest.

I tried watching Robin Hood 301 and it kinda bored me a bit, so I'll wait before continuing.

CSI NY I like but it's also nearly over.

And while I do have a billion shows to watch, it's fun when a show it's airing to see what other people think, read their posts an tweets and all the discussion.

What else is on? 30 rock, though I don't love it as much. My boys,which is fun and all but not worth obsessing over.
Better off ted is also pretty fun, though I'm not exactly head over heels for it.
It's been a while since I've watched Chuck and I  was never a big fan to begin with

Burn Notice doesn't come back for a while

Dexter is another show I haven't caught up on.maybe I should.

Greek's been pretty fun but not OMGAWESOME

There's a lot of things on TV,sure, but so few are are BRILLIANT. that make me go crazy obsessive and writing fic and meta and making vids or whatever.

Most seemto be of the kinds one watches, comment about a few things and then forget about.
and that's kinda boring.
I like shows that I can obsess over.
I know neither Castle nor Dollhouse or Primeval are perfect.
I'm not looking for perfection. Just something that excites me, with characters I care about so I can ignore any plotholes or look for alternative explanations.
I like shows that frak with my head and my heart.

Next on my to-watch list:
-Star Trek TOS season 3
-Dexter season 3
-Band of Brothers
-Teachers s3 (must download first)

Now, about TV I've watched lately: Spoilers for Bones,Primeval, Pushing Daisies and Castle )
