Months have come and by and haven't really blogged.
It's almost the end of August already. September is so near. You know what that means? New fall season on TV! OMG! I'm looking forward to a lot of stuff.
First and foremost, of course. Supernatural's fifth season. Season four was so-so for me. Unlike other fans, I wasn't really that hooked with the angels storyline. Castiel was okay in my book but Anna bothered the heck out of me. I loved Katie!Ruby from season 3 and Gen!Ruby irked me with her blase acting. But I still liked the season four ender. Kripke always delivers his season openers and enders. And that's why I'm looking forward to season five. Supernatural is just supposed to run for five seasons and that's fine with me. I'm scared that if Kripke extends this it might end like Smallville, dragging everything through filth and then it ends up being a fucked up series. But whatever happens, Kripke, please end it with a big bang.
Two other series that I'm looking forward too (maybe even more than Supernatural) is GLEE and Merlin season two. I was able to watch both the director's cut and the preview of GLEE. The director's cut was more cohesive than the preview. And I love it from the very start when they were performing That's the Way I Like It. The director's cut numerous VOs made me like it better than the preview. I think that added to my love for this series too. And also of course the music and songs and choreography. XD Oh and Cory. ♥
As for Merlin, I was and still am waiting for season two since December last year! OMG! That's such a long wait! I mean, I know that there's a season two for it but why won't they give a specific official date?! Even it's return on September isn't really official yet since I haven't read it anywhere but from several fan places only. I want my Arthur already. And Merlin. And their cheesy and slashy goodness.
I marathoned Law & Order: Special Victims Unit last summer. Yes, all ten seasons within three weeks. And now that's added to my current watch list too. I started it since I am obsessed with J.D. Robb's In Death series and Olivia reminded me of Eve so much. But as the seasons went on, I started to really like this series a lot. I'm glad that Mariska Hargitay and Chris Meloni's back for season eleven because I don't know if my love for Munch will make me watch this series if Olivia and Stabler won't be back.
Now the other series I'm also placing in my to-be-watched list: Fringe, How I Met Your Mother, Survivor and The Amazing Race. I wanna add Chuck to it too but won't it be back mid-season.. so that's like sometime January next year? I'm definitely not adding Heroes already, haven't been watching that for a little less than a season now. I'm on the fence if I should still watch Gossip Girl but haven't also touched that too for half a season. The same for Dollhouse, haven't watched the season ender and the unaired pilot. So what I have isn't really a long list for now , but more than likely it'll grow as I add some of the series that'll premiere. I wanna try Vampire Diaries because of Somerhalder so I'll definitely be watching the premiere for that but I don't know if he could make me watch the whole season. As for the shows that are already airing, I only have one and that's Psych. And yes, it is still hilarious.
With my current list, I think I have almost a series or two to watch almost all the days of the week. That's good for me. :D
If you're watching Survivor and still don't know who wins it and don't wanna be spoiled, stop reading right now. This is spoiler-filled and I'm lazy to put it under a cut.
Still reading? I already warned you.
I'm pretty happy with this season of Survivor. Liked it better than the crappy Vanuatu one. But I was rooting for Terry to win it. Because any other winner than him would have been such a disappointing win. Or so I thought. I always liked Aras. But not enough to root for him. He is the pretty boy/hunk of the group that I thought he'll be a threat to others and will be ousted eventually. But since individual immunity started he was my second choice to win it if ever Terry doesn't. So my ideal final two was Terry and Aras and Terry winning it and overcoming the car curse. Oh my god. Someone really have to stop that car curse!!! Sad to say Terry was the third but I'm still glad Aras won. Seriously, better him than Danielle. And even better him than Cirie. I never did like Cirie. I'm one of those few people who just didn't like her at all. Right from the start when she contrived to vote Tina off. Yeah, never did like her from then. And now that it's finished I'm gonna sorta miss this season. No more crazy Shane. Though seriously, I like Shane and his craziness since he brought more life to the show than Cirie, Danielle, Bruce and Courtney combined. And no more alpha-male head-butting Terry and Aras. No more hunky and drool worthy Aras. And no more cocky Terry winning immunity. But yeah, up to the end, like what Shane said, I really think Terry was the ulitimate survivor in this season.
Anyway, congrats to Aras, you hunk, you! XD And now to wait for Survivor: Cook Islands this September. Looks like there's still be an exile island in this one too. Damn, that's such a long wait! Four months?! How the hell am I gonna live without my weekly Survivor fix! T____T
But anyway, before that have to watch TAR9 Finale this Thursday. I'm really not rooting anyone on this since I pretty much like everyone, and yes, that includes the frat boys. I'm partly glad that team MoJo's out last week but then pretty sad since every team in the finals looks like they get along well. So really nothing good for TV there. No bickering and such. But yeah, yay! TAR9 Finale!
i'm thinking of raving about how drool worthy advent children is... but maybe i'll talk about that some other time. oh, as a note, someone told me that the japanese DVD has english subtitles. so, right now, FF7:ac went up on my to-order-online list just because of that. for those who are looking for it, it's listed at amazon.jp.
anyway, like what i said, that wasn't what i was supposed to talk about. survivor guatemala. yeah, i am a reality tv junkie... only when it comes to survivor and amazing race. survivor 11 was supposed to be shown at studio23 at 1PM for the via satellite telecast and 8PM for the primetime telecast. i have no idea what happened but they didn't follow the 1PM schedule. i'm glad i didn't miss work for it. but heck waiting in front of the TV for an hour and a half just to realize that they're not going to show it is irritating. but at least they still have the primetime telecast. which makes me glad that i'm not a party person and am willing to stay home on a friday night. and i'm happy that work was cancelled today so i can go home earlier than expected to catch it at home instead of watching it at work. twist of this season? re-entering of bobby jon and stephenie, castaways from survivor palau. i have no idea why mark burnett did this. but seeing bobby jon again on tv definitely made my week. and since this will be a weekly show, he'll now make my every week. even with the rolling back of the eyes, and suffering from dehydration and cramps, he's still as hot, yummy and sexy as ever. looks like i know who i'll be rooting for this season. XDDD i just hope that he makes it farther this time than the last time he was in the game.
