castalia: (SGA - Teyla & Ronon)
I've been so behind this summer when it comes to TV, as usual. There's still a bunch of stuff I'd like to try: Glee, Warehouse 13, Defying Gravity, Mad Men, Leverage, and probably more that will come to me later. I saw part of Being Human at Bling and would like to see the rest, just have to get around to it. The previews for Flash Forward intrigued me, and it has John Cho and other pretty people, so I have acquired the pilot and will check it out. I may give Eastwick and The Bridge a chance, if only for Paul Gross and Aaron Douglas, respectively. I have reservations about Stargate: Universe, but I do love my Gateverse so it'll get its chance as well.

I finally sat down the week after Dragon*Con and watched the final season of Atlantis, which I'd been putting off for one reason or another. Cut for mild spoilers )

Let's see, what else. New NCIS, of course, which I mostly liked. Still with the mild spoilers )

I also watched the pilot for Modern Family, a new ABC half-hour comedy which features a gay couple who adopt a baby together. So far the two guys, Cameron and Mitchell (and boy, did those names make me laugh for a long while), have some slightly stereotypical characteristics, but not too OTT yet. One is the uptight, clean-cut type, while the other is more swishy but mostly in actions (he's casual and a bit overweight, more laid back yet dramatic at times). One of the other families is completely white, one mixed (white male, Latina woman), so not very much minority presence yet. I may stick it out a few more episodes and see where they go with it.

Let's see, there was the season premiere of House, too. I tuned in despite not having seen most of the past two seasons or so, just eps here and there. I'm a little tired of House being such a dick, in particular to the mentally ill in this episode, b/c with as far as he went with the meanness and bad judgment, I don't think he should be a doctor at all. But then there was Andre Braugher, and I'll put up with a lot for him. And considering certain spoilers for this season, I may stick it out a little more anyway.

*sigh* Too much TV, not enough time. Well, okay, this week I've had plenty of time, just didn't feel like watching much for whatever reason. I'll get to it all eventually.
castalia: (J/D wedding - 200th ep)
Today is an awesome morning for Gateverse news.

Officially, the third SG-1 movie is a go! No shooting dates yet, but possibly this fall.

Even better, Richard Dean Anderson has signed on to appear in both the new movie AND the premiere of SGU. Michael Shanks was already confirmed to be in the SGU premiere, along with Gary Jones. It's very fitting IMO for Jack and Daniel to see the new series off, just like they did with SGA. *happy*

Also in news from Gateworld, Amanda Tapping will appear in SGU. That just leaves Teal'c and maybe some of the SGA crew to show up.

They're also confirming that at least one character on SGU will be canonically gay, and not just in the writers' minds this time. Spoilers at the link for which one is for certain; no word yet on the other(s).

I'm kind of looking forward to SGU, I have to admit. The casting has been interesting, we'll still get to see familiar faces, and I miss having Stargate on my TV.

Is it sad that the Friday line-up is just about the only thing getting me from week to week these days? I'm going to try to last the month of August before quitting at M&M, but I'm quickly being tired out by working so much. I'm just tired all the time, not to mention bruised up and aching. The money is good, but I really don't have time for anything. I'm barely getting the prerequisite reading I need for the course done. I swear, I hate my life right now. Can I just leave for Wales now, please?

BSG 2.03 - Fragged )

You know, I love how much great info has been collected at the BSG Wikipedia, but geez, could they have chosen a color scheme any harder on the eyes? I know it matches the pretty seal, but omg, the retinal pain.
