Saturday Social Post



Hello, television viewers! I thought we could use another social post since the last one was so successful. Feel free to talk about any TV you want, below is a texty to use if you want.

I was actually talking about that episode with my husband the other day!

I had totally forgotten about that episode. Season...7? 8?

What TV have you been watching? This week: Blue Bloods, Hawaii Five-O, Criminal Minds, the international Criminal Minds, and eps 3x08 and 3x09 of The Librarians. Oh, and the second half of the episode that was on PBS last night of Call the Midwife. I thought that was a reality show... totally going to watch it now.
Who is one of your favorite one-episode characters? Matthew Ashbaugh, played by John Noble on The Good Wife. I really liked that episode.
What show have you not watched, but are considering? Oh man, this list is way too long for me to even remember what I have sitting in my netflix queue.



Also... this week it clicked for me that Luke Cage is Lemond Bishop. I still haven't watched that on Netflix, so it's been a while since I watched Jessica Jones, and then I was watching the preview for that thing this summer and went HOLY SHIT!

This weekend is dedicated to Sense8 season two for me.

I'm so in love with that show.

(although I realised I don't have any Sense8 icons and now I'm sad).

Oddly I could have sworn I saw a Sense 8 icon post in the past month but I took a look at a few icon communities and I didn't see any. (Also, why wouldn't an icon community tag for canon content!)

What TV have you been watching?
For the past week(end) I've been watching season four of NCIS:LA. My initialy plan to start from the beginning of the show got changed very fast. I watched the backdoor pilot and the first two episodes, and then I decided I already know seasons one t(w)o three too well and moved on instead. Was a good decision, and I've been enjoying myself a lot!

Who is one of your favorite one-episode characters?
My most favourite is from the TV show Earth: Final Conflict. Colonel Liam Kincaid. I mean, we all knew that "Liam Kincaid, former second in command to William Boone" wasn't Liam's real identity, but still - meeting the real Liam Kincaid came as a surprise. A great one, though. To this day episode 2.21 Message in a Bottle is one of my favourite episodes of EFC, and largely because of Liam interacting with the real Liam Kincaid. *g*

What show have you not watched, but are considering?
Far too many! I've tried not thinking about them, though, and have been concentrating on NCIS:LA exclusively.

Ooh, the reveal of the *real* Liam Kincaid was so well done!! I really should do a rewatch of that whole show (well, skipping that final season. because ugh)
dancing_serpent: (EFC - MIAB - Colonel Kincaid)

[personal profile] dancing_serpent 2017-05-06 08:39 pm (UTC)(link)
It really was amazing! I hadn't given Liam's choice of identity any thought at first, and then that episode happened, and I thought "Right! Of course there's the real one still out there being royally pissed off that someone pretends to be him." I loved it!

I've been pondering an NCIS:LA rewatch. Love that show so much, though I've fallen behind since they moved the night it aired and well... homework.

EFC!! I remember loving that show. I should do a rewatch of that also... after I actually catch up on current television...

dancing_serpent: (NCIS LA - Sam/G - kevlar)

[personal profile] dancing_serpent 2017-05-06 11:19 pm (UTC)(link)
I still haven't watched season 7 and 8 yet, but I'm looking forward to them a lot. Rewatching from earlier seasons on is my method of getting into the mood and prolonging the joy.

You should totally do an EFC rewatch! And join us over at the (pretty quiet) [community profile] earth_final_conflict community. *g*

One day I'll get to an EFC rewatch. I just started working on this past season of the DC shows. I stopped on Supergirl right before the crossover ep becaue I hadn't watched the others and it's FINALLY on netflix, so here I go, LOL

[personal profile] dancing_serpent 2017-05-07 07:59 am (UTC)(link)
Oh yeah, I have so much to catch up on regarding DC! I do have all the episodes available, I just lack the time for everything. Priorities, etc. *g*

So not about specific TV shows but this caught my attention: MTV makes film and TV awards gender neutral.

I'm not sure how I feel about female nominees no longer having their own acting categories -- not so much for these awards as potentially other ones. There are certainly more female roles in TV so I think they'd be less affected than in film, but it seems to me that this is automatically cutting the number of awards you hand out. And even if the winners alternated each year between a man or a woman, you're talking fewer actors with awards, and since awards also = higher salaries, that's not going to help narrow the pay difference for men and women.

It's bad enough that some shows (and people) get nominated over and over again when there are often more deserving nominees around. It seems to me this isn't likely to help since with a separate women's category they have to come up with at least 5 women even if it keeps going to only 1.

Who is one of your favorite one-episode characters? Probably Marty Glenn from the X-Files episode "Mind's Eye."
What show have you not watched, but are considering? American Gods, The Handmaid's Tale (both will happen, just need to start).

[personal profile] alorarose 2017-05-06 10:18 pm (UTC)(link)
I'm almost done with the 8th Outlander book. THEN I can catch up on season 2... which.. I watched the first ep of, LOL.

Is The White Princess connected to the White Queen? (I did see the latter)

I've been watching some OuaT and am curious about the musical episode.

I enjoyed developments on the most recent SHIELD and am curious to see how the season will wrap up.

Name Lynn
What TV have you been watching? The Great British Baking Show (rewatch), Lie to Me, Daredevil (rewatch), Lucifer, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Parks & Rec
Who is one of your favorite one-episode characters? Hmm. Can't think of any at the moment. All of my faves ended up being in multiple episodes after a while.
What show have you not watched, but are considering? Leverage is definitely on my list. I'll probably have to wait for American Gods to come out on DVD. Modern Family has been recommended to me.
dwell_ondreams: (TW: McLinski)

[personal profile] dwell_ondreams 2017-05-10 10:47 pm (UTC)(link)
Cool! I'll probably start it once I finish Lie to Me.

I'm still an episode behind on B99 but liked how the "save the precinct" wrapped up.
dwell_ondreams: (Lucifer: Team Luci)

[personal profile] dwell_ondreams 2017-05-10 10:44 pm (UTC)(link)
I'm behind too, but by like half a season, lol. I'll get caught up soon, I think.
wendelah1: (Madame Secretary)

Name Wendy
What TV have you been watching? The Americans, but I'm two episodes behind. Madame Secretary, but I'm still one episode behind. Elementary--we might be caught up with it. The Expanse just came in at the library so I'm re-watching season one. Genius, the series on National Geographic about Albert Einstein, but again, I'm behind. I watched one episode, the pilot, of Mad Men. That was not for me. I'm seven or eight episodes behind on The Magicians. The second season is so violent, I can only take it in small doses.
Who is one of your favorite one-episode characters? From Fringe, the second episode of its fourth season, "One Night in October", my favorite character is John McClennan, who is a professor of forensic psychology in Our Universe and a serial killer in the Other Universe. It's my favorite episode of that season, and actor John Pyper-Ferguson is outstanding, playing both roles.
What show have you not watched, but are considering? I have Wuthering Heights (PBS Masterpiece Theater) on my DVR, so once I'm caught up with my weekly shows I'll watch it. If Stranger Things ever gets released on DVD I'll order it from the library. Ditto for The Man in the High Castle, The Handmaid's Tale and a detective series, the name is escaping me just now. I'm not holding my breath. I don't subscribe to Starz but even if I did, I've never read American Gods so I wouldn't be able to watch that until I did. I'm considering watching seasons eight and nine of The X-Files. Better late than never?

What show have you not watched, but are considering? so many it's ridiculous tbqh but the show most recently added to my list is netflix's cable girls. has anyone started it yet? i get bomb girls vibes from the poster/summary so i have high hopes!
