A few thoughts )

It's really interesting to me what trips my embarrassment squick and what doesn't. Several people said Big Bang Theory did it for them, but it never does for me. Yet Ugly Betty I have to pause so many times per episode. It took me so long to watch these two episodes last night because I had to keep pausing and could barely make myself start watching again.

Woohoo! Now I'm all caught up with my main shows. Maybe I'll even have a little time to watch some of that huge backlog of Brothers & Sisters before everything else gets back from hiatus.

Hey, I watched TV.

Supernatural 5x07 )

Ugly Betty 4x01-04 )

Modern Family 1x01-06 )

So now I am watching Supernatural, Ugly Betty, Glee, Modern Family, Brothers & Sisters*, Leverage, The Simpsons, and Family Guy. Even if three of those are half-hour shows, that is a ton of TV. To be honest, I really don't understand how TV is relaxing for most people. Keeping up with stuff is super stressful for me.

I had been planning on watching FlashForward just to see, but even the thought of it was beginning to stress me out, so I think I'm going to just set it aside for the moment. I have the first six eps on my hard drive, but I moved them from the internal "watch it soon" folder to the external "maybe someday" folder. I have the book, so what I'll probably do is read that and see how well I like it and whether or not I want to watch a show based on it (I doubt the show has much to do with the book, though). I know there are people on my flist watching it, but I don't hear much talk about it. What do you guys think of it? Awesome or just okay?

*I still am not caught up on Brothers & Sisters. I have half of S3 to watch before even getting to this season, but because I'm watching so many other shows, I never seem to have time to catch up.

Ugly Betty

I just now got around to watching last week's episode of Ugly Betty (I guess this week it was preempted for Bush's speech, which normally I would be annoyed by, but in this case, it means I have less to catch up on) and spoilers! )

Oops, just realised I still had this to watch.

Very short spoilers )

1. Finally got around to watching Ugly Betty this afternoon. Spoilers )

2. This morning we went to Rite Aid to look for cheap Halloween candy and it was totally plundered already. D: Julie, I did get you two packages of Peeps, but there was no sign of the caramel apple Kisses. (The cherry cordial ones are not limited edition, though, so they should be easy to find elsewhere.) I did get a bag of mellowcreme pumpkins for myself. I would have preferred just regular candy corn, but they had none.

3. We got a better haul at the farmers' market, though. Someone actually had rhubarb! So we got a bunch and now all we need is a pie crust. :D Also got some strawberries and some more of the smoked firehouse cheddar. We also treated ourself to breakfast there. I say treat because the food stalls are really, really pricey. $11 for a chicken kabob and Coke. (We shared.) It was soooooooo good, though!

4. It's been raining on and off today. Just lightly, but there are lots of ominous dark clouds, so it might rain more later. It actually started coming down just as we were about two blocks from home. Luckily one of those blocks is one of the college parking structures, so we were able to duck in there and avoid the rain for part of the way.

5. I brought my old laptop in here last night and finally started working on Saint Oniisan. The next chapter is all translated, and the bubbles are all erased, I just need to put the English text in and do cleanup where text wasn't in bubbles. Unfortunately the Photoshop I have on this computer doesn't really seem to like Vista, so I can't do that kind of heavy editing on it and have to use my old laptop, which is a pain and that's why I've been dragging my feet. Hopefully I'll finish it up tonight or tomorrow, though, and post on Monday. Jesus and Buddha go to Disneyland! :)

Ugly Betty episode whatever )

I also just started watching this British sitcom called No Heroics, recced to me by Bruce and ana. There are only six half-hour episodes, but it is hilarious! I hope someone requests this for Yuletide. I'd really like to see some fic. It's set in a world where there are tons of superheroes and they're just ordinary folks who happen to have super powers, not necessarily actually heroic people. I really loved the first episode and will probably watch more later tonight as I'm at that point in my cold where I really don't feel like doing anything but sitting here and being blah.

So I finally got to watch Ugly Betty tonight (couldn't find a download at first, then didn't have a chance to watch it) and spoilers )

Tonight was the season premiere of Ugly Betty, which was a nice surprise as the last time I'd looked at Wikipedia, they hadn't had a date for the premiere at all.

I really loved this episode. The new season is off to such a good start. spoilers )

I also spent most of the day watching more Arrested Development. I'm well into season two now. (Though to be fair, it's only a half-hour show, so it goes much faster.) Romanising and translating lyrics is pretty much the only thing I can do while watching TV, so I've actually got quite a few done this week, which is good as I was hugely behind on my requests queue.
