Wake up, check e-mails, read TV-shows newsletter, see that Pauley Perrette is leaving NCIS after this season.

Ugh, no! Abby is the best thing about this show! I suspect I'll keep watching anyway, but it won't be as fun anymore.
Feels weird to remember something and at the same moment realize that it was a dream. I dreamt I was watching a clip where Thirteen's first appearance came up and I looked away, because I wanted to wait for the episode to see that. All I remember seeing is that her hair was apparently darker than it was in the actor-revelation clip.

Finished my Ashes to Ashes rewatch. Next up: Sliders S1-3. I've had the DVDs for months and finally it's their turn. I hope I still like the show! Not sure if I'll watch in German or English. I'm used to it in German, but I'd like to check it out in the original language.

Such an iconable episode! I hope I'll find the time to make all those icons.

Since my latest Life on Mars rewatch I can't hear "stay" without getting feels.

ideas that are loosely connected to the episode )

I've rewatched the episode in search for iconable moments, and have some thoughts to add to my review.

I just watched the Cormoran Strike adaptation's trailer (though I still don't know if I'll watch the show).

Spoilers, if you haven't read the book! )
Two weird things happened during the LoM rewatch I just had: 1. I actually kind of like Gene now! And 2. I noticed that he's actually nice to look at. And which happened first? Possibility A: Did I realize he's attractive and so I cut him some slack? Or B: Did I find his personality less ugly and that has made me find his face less ugly?

Either way, the thing that happened first had to be brought on by something. Possibility B makes more sense to me (because this is how it usually works for me), though I can think of absolutely no evidence for this in this case. I have no idea why my opinion of Gene would suddenly improve! He's still not my sort of person.
For possibility A I can think of only one potential cause (but hey, that's still more than possibility B has going for itself): that maybe Gene has become somewhat attractive to me because the character and I are a bit closer in age now. Though there's still something weird about that: my last rewatch was only a bit over a year ago.

I've just started rewatching Ashes to Ashes and I don't know if I realized that during my previous viewings, but A2A!Gene is a bit different from LoM!Gene. He's gotten classier in looks and as a police officer. Gene being more professional gives me feelings: He's learned something from Sam. ♥

Oh hey, the good thing about my generally improved opinion of Gene is that now I'm finally on board with Alex & Gene's UST.

I did take review notes, but fuck those, there's nothing interesting in there anyway. Ugh, I expected this to be a proper finale, but it was just a whole fucking Dénouement Episode. What a disappointment. I need to be forewarned about this sort of stuff!
And it's not just any episode, it's the fucking finale! And yet my Life on Mars rewatch has priority. That's because I'm finally making progress, due to postponing the icon-making part until after the rewatch. So now it's every day an ep, unless I have something real-lifey planned (thanks to cap making, watching one episode can take up a whole day). And LoM isn't just the priority so I get the rewatch finished, it's also because now it's an obsession. I really, really love this show and it hit me again full force during 2x04.

But now it's almost over again, so I have decided to rewatch Ashes to Ashes to counter the withdrawal. I can even fit that in my day without losing any time! Because I won't be capping or writing reviews (see [community profile] lifein1973's rewatch tag for the latter) I can watch while I'm on the crosstrainer.

Anyway, I can't believe I'm putting off the Orphan Black finale! Never thought that would happen. On the other hand, I'm scared of any more characters getting killed off, so that probably helps me avoid the ep. It's planned for tomorrow, though. I can do it! I'm expecting a happy ending over all ...you know, except for the potential deaths.

But for some reason it takes too much effort. I'm in that phase again where I start writing comments and abort them, because I can't get it worded right or what I have to say feels just too fucking banal to actually post. I can't scrape together the bits and pieces of info I want in an entry, so usually I don't even bother starting to write.

In other (possibly somewhat related) news: A while ago I quit my antidepressant and the withdrawal has turned my emotions up to 11. If anything is slightly moving, I'll tear up. That part is okay. What's really annoying, though, is that I'm now very easily frustrated by the stupidest shit!
