um... if you saw tonight's Mad Men... (5x12)

OH MY GOD.

i just wrote a bunch of stuff that LJ ate because apparently bullet points + LJ cut equals DIE IN A FIRE.

tonight was 5x04, mystery date


a series of spoilery observations, sometimes in capslock )


AHHHH THE UNCANNY VALLEY BABY PIXAR SHORT IS ON AND IT IS CREEPY

Day 29 - Current TV show obsession
Day 30 - Saddest character death


Current TV show obsession... well, now we're in the inbetween time for summer, but Mad Men is starting about a month from now.



Others: Community, Justified, Chuck. And I watch an inordinate amount of Tosh.0.

Fandom-wise, it's mostly Chuck and Legend of the Seeker right now.

Saddest character death... hmm. Well, we did just see the end of Lost, which featured any number of Jears-worthy deaths. However, if you watched The X-Files, and you saw "Closure," when they revealed Samantha's (most-likely) fate... well, I still want to cry when I hear "My Weakness" by Moby, because of that episode. Technically Samantha didn't die in that episode, but Mulder found out what had happened to her and it was kind of like her dying all over again, because until then he just didn't know.

(I found the explanation lame, but the emotional impact of that scene in the field was still pretty powerful.)

Day 10 - A show you thought you wouldn't like but ended up loving

That's actually happened quite a lot. Usually at that point it takes someone's outside recommendation to get me to watch.

So, here's shows I like and what I thought they were about before I started watching:

-Mad Men - Ad execs are drunken philanderers who like group sex. (That's from a promo AMC ran that included a scene from "The Long Weekend," when Roger and Don, Roger specifically, flirt with a pair of twin redheads, and Roger is clearly into the idea of the girls making out.)
-Chuck - Nerd somehow gets a computer put into his head and magically becomes a spy. (Well, if magically means two and a half seasons later. And the premise does sound insane; it's all in the execution.)
-Buffy the Vampire Slayer - Blonde airhead valley girl somehow is able to fight vampires. (A much more apt description of the movie.)
-Legend of the Seeker - Ridiculously hot guy, his untouchable girlfriend, and an old guy in a robe have a lot of fights in the woods. (Originally I had it on as background noise because the scenery is glorious. Then I got intrigued by the actual plot.)
-Big Bang Theory - Four viciously stereotyped nerds flirt with their neighbor across the hall, who may also live there, who knows. (Yes, before I watched I thought Howard and Raj lived in the apartment too; half the time it seems like they do.)

Day 09 - Best scene ever

Mad Men - "The Wheel"

This is from the Mad Men Season 1 finale - while I wouldn't suggest watching it unless you've seen at least some of Mad Men, it's not really very spoilery at all, but without the rest of the episode behind it, it lacks some of its potency. Like all the Mad Men season finales, there's a slow burn that suddenly socks you in the gut, at the end of the season. (This past season, really the last three episodes kicked so much ass.)

Day 06 - Favorite episode of your favorite TV show

I'm going to cheat

("now she says she's going to cheat?" you exclaim irritably at the computer screen. "like she ever does anything else?")

and say favorite episodes of 5 TV shows. And then probably embed video/explanation behind the cut because it always slows this blanking computer down/could spoil you.

01. The X-Files: Memento Mori
02. Mystery Science Theater 3000: Soultaker
03. Law & Order: Criminal Intent: Wee Small Hours
04. Mad Men: Guy Walks Into an Advertising Agency/Shut the Door. Have a Seat
05. Chuck: Chuck vs the Colonel

01. i saw revolutionary road this weekend. i was struck by:

-how much it felt like a play. closer was a play that really worked as a movie; revolutionary road is apparently based on a book but i was watching it with subtitles, and kate and leo's line deliveries and dramatic gestures did make it feel really play-like.
-how much leo's character was like pete campbell from mad men, only slightly less of a sociopath.

i'm of the opinion that if you like the movie, you'll love mad men. it has a lot of the same elements, the same ambiguity, but i feel that it's done better.

02. damages has really kicked it up a few notches, especially with last night's episode.

and all that crap about your family )

03. in fact, maybe it's time for us to talk justified. i've really enjoyed it so far, and the preview for tonight's ep looks like it is also going to be great. now i want to read some elmore leonard.

04. chuck! on to the spoilers! )

05. on sunday i just watched an old episode of community for the hell of it (it was the phys ed one). i do love that show, and i wish it would come back on, but apparently it's coming back the same week chuck is, which makes me sad. i can't wait until the DVD set comes out so i can get more people watching. =D

06. i would be so happy if scifi would air reruns of mst3k once a week like they used to. even on saturday mornings, like they used to. *sigh*

07. part 2 of the law & order: criminal intent season premiere tonight. i hope everyone currently alive stays alive and that there is more hugging and marriage-feigning tonight.
