Apparently I have Dollhouse on the brain. Last night I had a very long and vivid Dollhouse dream. It involved a lot of Alpha and Ballard. Which was a bit creepy, considering the context. Probably my brain reminding me there are only three episodes left. *sigh*

Time for me to kick a kitty off my bed methinks. Just a couple more days til I'm on vacation.

Dollhouse

jdotmi: (The Third Flower is Green)
The new season of Dollhouse starts tonight! This show got really really good midway through the season last year, so make sure to watch it. Live is best, but DVR will do. FOX seems to really really love the DVR numbers for this show.

Tonight's episode guest stars Jamie Bamber, along with his native British accent. It's also one of the three episodes this season for Amy Acker, who is a regular on a mid season show.

Oh hey, look at that, I've still got a LiveJournal!

Sorry, y'all. Twitter and Facebook ate my brain.

And I'd have a really cool and informative update, but I'm at work and I'm busy and I have a new boss starting tomorrow so I gotta get shit done.

WoW and CoH also ate my brain. CoH will eat it more once Issue 16 goes into open beta. Or I get into closed. Whichever comes first.

Also? True Blood and Dollhouse. Did I mention I've read the entire Sookie Stackhouse series of novels three times now? Two of which were in a row? I'm now lending the books to a co-worker of Keith's so that I don't read them all again.

And now, I track food! I'm trying to cut down on what I'm eating. To say I've been eating a bit too much lately is a bit of an understatement.

Cut cuz you really don't care. )

Eagerly awaiting the new season of True Blood. Got season 1 (twice, first copy had two disk 5's and no disk 3's) and have been enjoying it far too much. Especially with enhanced viewing. Also been re-reading the first four books. Need to get the rest since they are introducing characters in season 2 that don't appear in the books until book 5 and later.

Been watching a lot of Dollhouse on iTunes. Probably more than is healthy. I even made a small number of icons from "Man on the Street". Because, ya know, I post oh so much...

Been playing City of Heroes and Civilization IV: Colonization and World of Warcraft. It's really hard to stay in one game for longer than 30 minutes at a time right now, though. -_- My ability to focus has gone pfffffzt!

Netflix is evil. In a good way. The Golden Compass was a good movie and they need to make the sequel now. Currently getting disks of Birds of Prey, which was cheesy and somewhat over the top but was still a pretty decent show.

Just finished a huge project at work and am now waiting to launch said project and train people on it. Time to get back to work

This week's episode of Dollhouse was, I think, the best episode yet. Especially if you are a fan of previous Joss Whedon shows. The humor was definitely back in it, for those who were worried. It's not quite as puntastic as his previous shows, but when the B-plot of the episode revolves around erections, and then the C plot involves the counterfeit voodoo lady that bilked Tara's momma in True Blood playing an FBI agent that's a specialist at face matching, then I'm all sorts of entertained.

In other news, the Tax Fairy should be on it's way soon with buckets and buckets of debt reduction.

Nothing quite beats waking up in the morning and looking forward to a nice warm shower than the discovery that there is no running water in your entire apartment. Good times. Good times.

So, yeah. Woke up this morning to a complete lack of running water. So, [livejournal.com profile] satyr_mi and I got up, got dressed, made our lunches, and meandered on in to work an hour early. Yeah. Got breakfast and now am waiting until I can go punch in to begin my day.

Did I mention the no running water? Yeah. That means no shower. I feel greasy as hell right now. This is not a happy moment for me.

In other news, Dollhouse 1.3 was pretty good. Not as good as 1.2, but better than 1.1 was. And Eliza can sing, who knew?

Latest video game addiction? Star Ocean 4: The Last Hope. Fun fun game. Addictive game. Urge to kill little chibi mage with the incredibly doped up voice rising...

Due to crazy busy weekend, I didn't get to blabber about Dollhouse this weekend.

If you were worried that this show couldn't kick ass after the pilot (which was not the best pilot ever), this episode should turn that thought around. This episode, which could function as a second pilot although there were a couple of continuity things brought from the first episode, was made of awesome.

Having watched the pilot a few times I can see what they're doing with these episodes. Each stands on it's own, but when you watch them together you get these different layers pulled away to give you a more complete picture.

Excellent excellent episode.

THIS WAS THE BEST HOUR OF TELEVISION I HAVE WATCHED IN 2009 OTHER THAN THE SEASON PREMIER OF BATTLESTAR GALACTICA.

With that screamline out of the way... The rest of this post is spoiler central, so I'm using an LJ Cut for the rest of this.

Today is a very important day. Really. Today is a very important day! Really. You all agree with me, right.

That wasn't really a question, by the way.

So, the new Joss/Eliza series that has been hyped up all over the place? Dollhouse, which sounds absofuckinglutely amazing?

FOX has stuck it in the friday night death slot much like it did with Firefly.

...

WAY TO GO FOX. WHAT'S WRONG WITH LEAVING IT AT MONDAY LIKE YOU WERE ORIGINALLY GONNA DO???

And to add insult to injury, it will be following the seriously limping Terminator series that started relatively strong but has been seriously derailed this year thanks to the writer's strike, much like my favorite show ever (Pushing Daisies) which may wind up cancelled. -_-

I AM NOT AMUSED, NETWORKS!
