tv babbling (meaning downloaded shows)

Have been sick for around 11 days now and have done very little other than lie about in bed and watch shows on my laptop. Fun times, except for being sick.

Finished s3 of Doctor Who... wasn't terribly impressed. I really liked "Blink." The 'think happy thoughts!' bit in the series finale was just... um, yeah. And Ten and Dobby are cousins, maybe? Didn't expect when I started that I would like Eccleston and I figured I would hate Rose, but I ended up loving both and now miss them terribly. Argh.

I like Jack now, though, cincodemaygirl!

Went through s12 of Doctor Who - Four is just the best thing ever. And daleks still give me nightmares, wtf. (And yet I want one -- but a little one. No bigger than a pepper pot. That way, if it gets out of line, I can just step on it. You think I'm joking.)

Tried to watch some SGA and just couldn't get into it. No idea why. Woe. Then again, I had to force myself to finish Who s3, so maybe I just need to binge.

Watched the first ep of Secret Diary of a Call Girl. Billie Piper in her knickers, what's not to like?

Also been watching I'm Alan Partridge (I <3 Steve Coogan), Keeping Up Appearances, and Fawlty Towers. Okay, hardly new stuff, but still.

I have difficulty watching FT because I worked in a hotel and the service attitude has been so firmly shoved into my brain that I cringe when Basil is rude to a guest. And KuA is just great and I adore Hyacinth, but it's sort of sad/creepy if you watch more than one episode at a time. It starts coming off as very Garfield Minus Garfield, and you start to wonder if one day Hyacinth is going to realize that no one can stand her and slit her wrists with the broken shards of her fine bone china.

Oooh, I like your new layout.

Jack is awesome. See icon. I really think you should try Torchwood.

The secret thing that people do not tell you about Stargate: Atlantis is that it is not actually very good. Sometimes there are good episodes, but that's like 10% of the show. I suggest you skip around to only the ones that sound fun (i.e. Rodney episodes). I can make you a list if you like. <3

I hated, hated, hated the end of DW S3. Hated. I thought the Master was terribly overacted (but I don't blame John Simm, it's the direction) and I just wasn't terribly interested in the whole storyline. But there is so much awesome in S4--the first episode, for example, is a real treat.

I've never seen IAP or KUP, but I loved Fawlty Towers as a kid. I remember the moose head episode in particular.

Now it is time for me to get dressed and finish packing! Squee!!!

Whatever's making you sick needs to go far away. Now would be good. *huggles*

Ugh. Watching too much TV would do me in! XD

Aw, poor sickie *pets*

Holy crap, KUA. I watched that show on public television so much when I was wee. Ahh memories. XD

Get well soon~ <3

Pepper pots!
I would love to keep a couple Daleks hostage in my kitchen, but like you, they'd have to be small. One black and one white. Pepper pot and salt pot. =)
