So while I was in Vancouver I was forced facilitated into the viewing of "Suits".  I knew that chunks of my flist had gone happy for the show, but I'd put off watching it.  Mostly because I didn't want to get sucked into another fandom at the time.  I was quite happy with Hawaii Five-0 and tend to stick to one fandom at a time.

Anyway, after an all night marathon with friends I was completely sold.  I've been enjoying several other of USA's shows for the same reasons I enjoyed Suits.  The characters (both male and female) are smart and well developed.  Even the "bad guys" tend to be more than one-dimensional.

Not going to lie, the blatant slash between Harvey and Mike doesn't hurt but my enjoyment of the show is so much more than that.  It makes me laugh and even pulls at the heart from time to time.

Because "Suits" went over so well, I decided to give "White Collar" a try.  I'm half-way through first season (unfortunately I have to fit work in with the viewing this time) and I'm loving it for all the same reasons.  It's smart, I like both Peter and Neil (and I LOVE ELLE), it's made me laugh out loud several times.  The one downside is I can't bring myself to fully slash Peter and Neil unless it's an OT3 with Elle.  Did I mention my love for her?

So...anyone want to share their squee on "Suits", "White Collar" or other USA shows?  Any good fics or vids you'd like to rec?

Please note possible spoilers in the comments!

This was actually going to be a "I'm going to sit and bitch about work and fannish stuff and you're going to like it!" post, but I've decided to just post happy things instead.

- I have new bookshelves arriving soon.  I'm redecorating and they are the next step in my master plan of awesome.
- I have new yarn.  I got my hair done on Sunday and the yarn store is next door.  It's really a no win situation.
- I'll be heading up to Vancouver in a week and a half for my birthday. SQUEE!
- I will be able to gorge myself on sushi and WoW and comic books and yarn!
- There's an excellent chance that the Canucks will be finishing or have won the Stanley Cup when I get there!! SQUEEE!
- There will be booze consumption, TCBY and movies in various quantities.
- I can force feed help catch certain folks up on H50 episodes for the rest of the season which they have not viewed yet.

Wow.  Vancouver is going to be a busy 4 days!

Speaking of 50-ish stuff...I'm going to be putting up a poll (now with ticky boxes) later to gauge the interest in Fan Awards for 5-0 and if folks would like to participate.

I'm in full "head over heels" mode with Hawaii 5-0 now. Seriously. I've spent the past couple of days gorging myself on fic and episodes and there's no end in sight at the moment. I still need to either hunt down icons or make some, but I'll get there.

I've been trying to work out exactly when Steve fell for Danny and vice versa. For the record, for Steve it was totally love at first sight in the garage. Danny took a bit longer but not much. After all, he was telling his daughter all about Steve within a few weeks. :)

One of the things that has pleasantly surprised me is how well I like the "other women" in this fandom. I'm not just talking in the show. Overwhelmingly both Rachel and Catherine have been written as perfectly reasonable and smart women. I'm so used to seeing love interests (or former or potential love interests) written in fandom as these horrible harpies.

Anyhoo...if you haven't watched this video yet, YOU SHOULD!

I think [livejournal.com profile] rainfletcher might be the only one on my flist who will be interested in this, but I'm so very excited by this story in the Hollywood Reporter!

Elves Gather at Warners

For years and years there has been talk of an ElfQuest movie but it never came to fruition. It'll be interesting to see if this one actually makes it through the process. I'm also curious as to whether it'll be live action or animation. There are pluses and minuses to both. For those of you on my flist who read comic books, I HIGHLY recommend ElfQuest. Especially the original Quest. They're not easy to get your hands on these days, but the color versions are best. If you don't mind reading them online, the official site has been uploading the issues over the past year in celebration of the 30th anniversary.

I've been meaning to make some EQ icons for awhile and this just reminds me I haven't done that yet. I'll use Nightcrawler since Petalwing from EQ made a guest appearance in my favorite Uncanny X-Men.

Donna Noble (and Catherine Tate) >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> than anyone EVER.

Such an awesome episode. Can't wait for next week and then the finale.

Though speculation based on casting spoilers for both )

EEEEEEE!!! New TW tonight when I get home.  

This *almost* makes up for my crappy week so far.

For those of you who don't watch Torchwood, I apologize. This LJ is going to be pretty much taken over by the subject for the next few weeks or so. It doesn't help that BBC keeps releasing clips and snippets and spoilers. EEEEEEEEEEE

There's a YouTube of the latest clip from BBC America under the cut with more spoilery, squeeing goodness. Umm...sorry.

Read more... )

As a side note, I'm looking for a cap of JB (either as Jack or not) to do an icon that says "Better than Buffy" on it. Those who've read the interviews with James Marsters know what I'm referring to.

New clip for Ep1 of Series 2 of Torchwood is up here.  Obviously the link is spoilerific.

Umm...I'm never going to freakin' survive the rest of January at this rate!

I belive that my squee has been broken and burnt out.
