ndnickerson: steveholt! (ad-maeby steveholt!)
Day 11 - A show that disappointed you

Oh hell. The list of shows that haven't disappointed me is much shorter.

-Chuck - I've written many, many entries on why Season 3 just didn't work as well as I was expecting. (In fact, I'm working on another retrospect one.) That's not to say I won't be watching Season 4; I just feel like S3 was a lot of wheel-spinning.
-Veronica Mars - Seasons 1 and 2 were strong, especially S1; I lost interest in the show halfway through S3.
-Big Bang Theory - I liked Leonard/Penny until it happened. (I'm sure the show could manage to screw up Sheldon/Penny too, let's be honest.)
-The X-Files - should have ended with S7.
-Lois & Clark - You have to admit, that lame clone marrying Clark thing was... yeah, lame. On the whole, though, I did love this series, and the cliffhanger at the end was just mean, considering that we never saw the resolution.
-Law & Order: Criminal Intent - got rid of Goren and Eames. After driving Goren's personal life off a cliff.

Otherwise I get disappointed when a show doesn't live up to its hype - I think Harper's Island was good but I was expecting something a little different. And sometimes I'll get very excited about a show but then its pilot utterly sucks and I have no interest in watching after that. (I figured out very early that I didn't want to watch Desperate Housewives, Brothers & Sisters, or Grey's Anatomy every week.) It's possible those shows got better. I'm probably not going to tune back in to find that out.

(Also, am I disappointed that Stabler and Benson haven't hooked up? Yeah, a little, even though I stopped watching SVU a few seasons ago.)

i think it's been a while since i've done this...

[livejournal.com profile] glasheen25 asked which episode of veronica mars is my favorite and why.

this is another show i started watching after [livejournal.com profile] fairy_tale_echo told me it was great. since i've long adored nancy drew, and veronica really is rather nancy drew-ish, it was only logical that i'd probably like it. and veronica had an edge and was fearless and that was awesome.

spoilers ahoy )

all right then. [are benson and stabler in some sort of jewish whorehouse right now? wtf.]

sorry.

as i may have mentioned, i loaned my mad men season 1 dvd set to a friend, so she could watch it. she couldn't get into the pilot when watching at home, so we did what we did when i first got veronica mars a few years back: got together, sat down and had a marathon. we managed to knock out the entire first season of veronica mars over a day and a half (very little sleep), but we've been spacing it out a bit more with mad men. she got hooked after the first four episodes, and now we're two episodes away from the season 2 finale. [we just watched the jet set, which is *still* weird, even though i now know what happens after. also, she's asked for mad men s1 for her birthday, which just makes me glow with happiness.]

i also gave her (and another friend) copies of chuck season 1 on dvd, and have now gotten both of them hooked, so probably tomorrow we're going to start watching chuck s2 on my dvr.

i love getting people hooked on new shows. she was also watching life last year, and told me it was great, and she also loves big bang theory, and i've heard people recommend both, so i'm gonna have to check those out.

where was i, oh yes: must get to writing! =D
