coprime: an awesome lady stepping out of a boat (Littonia modesta)

Hee, so I first heard about this show ten minutes before the premiere aired, and I am glad I did! It's an alternative take on the superhero genre, sort of mainstream superheroes meets Men in Black. And it is fun! And funny! And the main female character is a total geek. Like, she plays video games and has opinions on which X-Men run is the best and is just generally awesome.

I have much love for shows that tackle common, ridiculous scifi plots in a way that lets me have fun while watching (It's what got me hooked on Eureka, which reminds me that the new season of that starts at the end of the month.), so I am very much looking forward to this show based on the first episode. I would quote bits to show the show's awesomeness, except I don't have time to rewatch the episode right now.

However! The pilot's available for free right now at the iTunes store. I don't know how long it'll remain free now that it's aired, but there you go.

Oh my. Having seen the premiere episode, I gotta say that it looks like it will be just as fabulous as the original. A contestant has already broken down crying, and it looks like there will be more crying next week. There were ugly clothes! And pretty clothes! And bitchery with just a touch of drama! So fantastic.

Which is good because I needed something to fill the void left by Top Chef since Project Runway Season 4 doesn't start for another month. And, okay, The Next Iron Chef is fun, but food just doesn't generate the same kind of drama that you get with fashion.

I need to rewatch the episode at some point because I was cooking at the time and missed some stuff. But what I did catch was enjoyable. Slightly confusing due to missing some plot points, but enoyable.

Hee, oh SGA, you did not disappoint with your season premiere.

Favorite bits included: Spoilers )

In other news, I got my ears pierced on Monday. So all week, I've been remembering that fact randomly and then going, "Yay, pierced ears!" They look good too.

Oh, man. I am so very glad I waited so I could watch "The Sound of Drums" and "Last of the Time Lords" back to back. It was awesome!

Oh, man. How did I *not* realize that Nick had finally started showing new episodes of Avatar. I'm catching the first new episode on Nick2, and it is all I could have hoped for.

Spoilers~ )

I found myself sans internet and tv last night and went, "Hmm, I seem to have an evening free and eight hours of Doctor Who on my computer. Sounds like a plan!"

Cut for spoilers and squee )

But mostly my reaction can be summed up by "Eee, Mickey! Eee, Ten! Eee, Rose!" in that order.

Man, Avatar: The Last Airbender is easily, in my opinion, the best cartoon being shown currently on American tv. The characters really do act like they're twelve, fourteen, fifteen, or sixteen. There's plot and continuity, but the episodes also stand on their own. Except after watching the entire season in order, there's so much more you can catch.

I stayed away from the show for a long time because Nickelodeon does not, in general, produce programming I want to watch. But [ profile] glenraven kept poking me until I finally watched it. And it was fantastic! But it came on when I worked, so I only saw a handful of episodes. Until Nickelodeon had a marathon of every episode aired, which I taped for the purpose of showing my roommate. And yes!

We have the season finale on right now, and I love it. Zuko is--! And Sokka, who is such a fifteen-year-old boy with a crush. And Katara's gotten so strong.

...I post now because anything else I'd have to say would be even more incoherent with glee than that last paragraph.

Well, Serenity was really, really good. I've seen it twice now, and I'd also like to state that everyone should go see it. Even if you never saw Firefly, they did a really good job making the movie accessible. (My dad, who only ever saw one ep and is notorious for asking questions during movies, followed it just fine and never once got bored.)

Spoilery Serenity thoughts )


Toons! Not particularly spoilery, but it is lengthy. )

One nice thing about being back at school is watching cartoons all Saturday night long with my roommate. I'm really liking Naruto, although Sakura's annoying. (She's too hypocritical for my tastes. Plus, it always annoys me when a character thinks she can change someone else with her love.) Zatch Bell and One Piece both continue to be annoying and slightly disturbing. Futurama, Inu-Yasha, Fullmetal Alchemist, and Samurai Champloo continue to be cool.

There were two eps of Justice League Unlimited, and I was surprised. I really liked them! I loved what they did with J'onn since it makes sense. Even though I'll miss him, it's better than what would have happened if he didn't take a vacation. Also, Flash hugged him when he left! So cute! (My biggest gripe about JLU is the complete lack of Flash. That one little scene totally made up for the lack in that ep [but not the series].)

And, Teen Titans totally rocked! How much do I love Teen Titans? THIIIIIIS MUCH!!! (Yes, my love really does need three exclamation marks.) I loved the difference between Robin and Mento's styles of leadership, especially since it seemed to highlight how while the Doom Patrol may have raised Beast Boy, the Titans are more of a family. I thought it was weird that they occasionally refered to the Doom Patrol members by name. It's the first time (that I remember) that anyone's had two names given in the show. (Slade goes by his actual name, but he's also never called Deathstroke. So, Slade functions as a codename. [I thought that was his codename when I first watched because I'd never read any comics at that point in time.]) And giving the Doom Patrol names is weird because it'll be off if they never refer to Beast Boy as Gar. But they can't because then he'll be the only Titan to have a name other than their superhero name.

Oh well, I ramble. Am eagerly waiting forward to next Saturday so I can see the end of tonight's ep.

Hee, the roommate and I are now watching Firefly. Mwahahaha, she is my third(ish) convert!

I finally got to watch the season finale with my mom (and dad, though he ignored the tv mostly). Spoiler cut! )

In other news, my hands smell like fish. This is odd because I cooked hamburgers and mushrooms for dinner, neither of which are fish.

Christal and I have finally caught up to the current ep. Having said that, spoilers for ep 109. )

I am very much enoying the series though. Rose is cool, while the Doctor is cute and fun and awesome. The acting, especially in "Father's Day," has been superb. Sadly, I just realized that I will not be able to watch any of this season with my mom since it's almost over and I'm about to go out of town for three weeks. I shall console myself with the idea of buying the season and then being able to watch with her. Or we can watch second season together whenever that gets shown.

I finally bit the bullet and bought the second season of Nero Wolfe from A&E. It should get here sometime this week, and I'm excited! I've wanted season two ever since I got season one for Christmas. Yay! I'd probably be even more bouncy if it weren't for the fact that it's almost 8 in the morning and I have not yet gone to sleep. Because, man, that was one awesome show.

Everything is perfect as far as details-- music, clothes, scenery, etc. And Timothy Hutton is such a perfect Archie that I don't think anyone else could possibly ever measure up to him. Possibly the only thing one could complain about is that Wolfe is more emotional than he is in the books, but that is so far from a complaint. And you know how people always say that when you adapt books, the movie/tv show is never as good? That is because they have not seen this! I mean, stuff is taken word for word from the book but manages to be fresh and wonderful.

In conclusion: The books rock, the show rocks, and I would put on my season one except I need to sleep before I pass out on the keyboard.

My mom is making gumbo, and it smells really good. I want some now, but it's not ready. And I'm hiding in my room at the moment.

So I read comics now. Authority Revolution 04, Cable & Deadpool 11, Green Arrow v3 46, Justice League Unlimited 05, Legends of the Dark Knight 187, Legion of Super-Heroes v5 02, Madrox 05, Nightwing 101-102 , Robin 134, Teen Titans Go! 15, Teen Titans v3 20, and Ultimate Fantastic Four 15, specifically.

Comic ramblings behind here. )

And I watch cartoons. The new Teen Titans and Justice League Unlimited.

Toon ramblings behind here. )

...Yeah. Me != deep.

Just finished watching "Wild Card." Spent a good deal of the time going, "Eww, Green Lantern/Hawkgirl." Like, any time either one of those two were on the screen. The ep did give me some good Flash moments too. And I might've screamed, "No~!" in my mind when the final bomb went off. But shh, I'm a big enough dork as it is.

And Hawkgirl/GL bugs me for more reasons than just interfering with GL/Flash. It's just... not being handled well, since I can't see why either of them likes the other. (Or, at least, I can't see any reasons that are unique to Hawkgirl and GL. Because say GL likes how Hawkgirl's able to take care of herself. Wonder Woman can as well. See what I'm saying? Maybe?) I also can't see the relationship working out long-term and don't see those two going for a fling.

I've started watching this show, and good Lord, is it addicting. I'm in the process of trying to acquire all the episodes for my computer. 'Cause yeah.

I have much love for the Green Lantern, with Flash as a runner-up. The Green Lantern kicks ass and is all tough and yeah. It's hard to describe why I like him so much, but I think it's because while he is extremely tough, he's also got quite the soft side and isn't ashamed of it. Because he doesn't give a flying fuck what anyone else thinks about him.

And Flash just amuses me to no end. Especially how he's the fastest man alive, but it's rather easy for someone to run verbal circles around him. Also, I cannot hear anything of Lex Luthor from Smallville in his voice, which is a testament to Michael Rosenbaum's acting abilities. Then there's the fact that while Flash may occasionally (okay, a lot of the time) do some rather stupid things, he's incapable of being evil. Any of the others, Batman and Superman especially I feel, could potentially cross that line. But not Flash.

So of course, I spend a good part of my time slashing GL and Flash. And yes, "The Brave and the Bold" and "Metamorphosis" are two of my favorite episodes. The first is obvious being very GL- and Flash-centric; in the second, GL spends the episode avoiding every scrap of heterosexuality thrown his way. Which amuses me so very, very much.

Some might argue that the writers are stting up Hawkgirl as GL's love interest, but they seem to be good friends more than anything to me. So that's how I write that off.

One other thing. Here, they say that GL's more complicated ring constructs in "Secret Society" might have been because of fan complaints. And, actually, the more complicated ring constructs bug me. I see the simplicity as part of GL's personality. As in, why expend the energy to make something complicated when something simple will do just as well? No, really. Why should he make a giant monster with nasty teeth when making a giant rake-like object would do the exact same thing and be easier to sustain? So that's my little gripe.
