2009 Fall Season

Tentative list of shows I'm going to follow this season with their premiere dates:

Wednesday, September 9:
Glee, 9 p.m. (Fox) - well, DUH! XD

Monday, September 21:
The Big Bang Theory, 9:30 p.m. (CBS)
Castle, 10 p.m. (ABC)
How I Met Your Mother, 8 p.m. (CBS)

Wednesday, September 23:
Cougar Town, 9:30 p.m. (ABC) - may try to watch it, since it's with Courtney Cox Arquette

Thursday, September 24:
Flash Forward, 8 p.m. (ABC) - the premise sounded kinda interesting. Might give it a try.

Friday, October 2:
Stargate Universe, 9 p.m. (Syfy) - it's Stargate, so, might give it a try. Which reminds me - I never finished SGA. Hum.

As for "Heroes" - stopped midway through last season, don't plan on watching it now. And "Smallville" just might get back in my viewing list after a few season off it because of the CLOIS!

Now I have to go befure my boyfriend kicks me outta his computer! ;) Love you, Rafa!

HP and the HBP & Legend of the Seeker

Twitter has eaten my brain - I guess...it's been a loooong time since I last posted here!

Anyway, I've been wanting to post this for a while now, and only now got the chance to do it!

First and more importantly: I SAW HARRY POTTER AND THE HALF BLOOD PRINCE AND I LIKED IT! True, I didn't LOVE IT, but I liked it nevertheless.

SPOILERS FOR HP6 UNDER THE CUT! )

Now, just for the fun of it, some comments made by [profile] rjann and [profile] ricardosolo after we saw the movie for a second time last week...no, they are not teenagers anymore, but their comments sure sound like they are! XD Silly boys...

Jokes with HP6 )

I watched the first season of Legend of the Seeker. SPOILERS for LotS Season 1 under the cut )

Mind you, I *liked* the series, probably because of all those cheesy ingredients above. So much I watched the entire first season in what? One week or two? But that doesn't stop me from making jokes! ;)

*signing off trying VERY HARD not to think of Comic Con this weekend, with Farscape 10th anniversary, Glee panel with second episode preview, Big Bang theory panel, and 24 panel with KATEE SACKHOFF!*

Terminator:Salvation

So, I just watched Terminator:Salvation.

And now I want even more to have Sarah Connor Chronicles back. And not because the movie was good, no, it wasn't. It was BAD.

What I didn't like in T4 )

Also! Too bad we didn't have a Derek Reese in the movie! But I guess T:SCC is considered AU.

And now I want to see T:SCC SEASON THREE! BECAUSE THEY WOULD'VE DONE THE FUTURE MUCH BETTER!

I did like Kyle Reese though, and when they both met. :) And Arnold's cameo! ;)

I'm a Gleek!

So, I've found a new obsession. If you follow me on twitter, you probably figured out what it was - yep, that's right.

Glee

I've seen it at least 5 times already, and I CAN'T. STOP. LISTENING. TO. THE. SONGS! NONSTOP! And not only when I'm near any sort of radio or the computer, but also when I'm working - the songs keep playing over and over in my head, especially "Don't Stop Believeing!"

I sure wish FOX would change its mind and decide to run it as a mid-season show! ;) I CAN'T WAIT for september to watch the next episodes!

And I'm getting annoying because of it. My boyfriend [profile] rjann tells me Glee is my new Farscape.

Allow me to explain.

You guys probably didn't get my full annoying self a few years back with Farscape. I had seen the first few episodes of it a loooong time ago, but only really got into it after the Peacekeepers War came out and I finally decided to watch the entire show and went CRAZY with it! I pestered EVERYONE I know to watch it. AND I had seen the first episodes and only came full crazy with it after season 2.

Now, I only saw the VERY FIRST episode of Glee, and I'm already starting to act like I did after TWO SEASONS of Farscape. Scary, huh?

And there is one very funny thing about that, which [personal profile] dtissagirl pointed out the other day.

Finn is played by Cory Monteith, who did a younger Cameron Michell in the SG-1 episode 200. And who played Mitchell? Ben Browder, otherwise known as that guy who played John Crichton in Farscape. SO. I'm amused! :)

Anyway, long and rambling post like I haven't done in a LONG time!

But what I really came here to do was to ask this:

ANYONE UP TO DO A GRAMMAR BETA ON A GLEE FIC I WROTE? [personal profile] dtissagirl already looked it over for me, but seeing as we are both portuguese speaking people, I wanted someone who has English as their native language.

The end is near...

The tv season is coming to an end! In some ways I'm happy because I want closure on some series storylines, but I'm also sad because there are lots of series that won't be back next season. For example, Battlestar Galactica.

Yep, still not over that we won't have Adama and his crew next year. *sigh*

Not to mention that there are a few series that might not come back - please, let it be just might, not certainly won't! - like Chuck and Sarah Connor. I'd be sad to see both go, especially Sarah Connor, and especially after the last episode!

SPOILERS! )

Also, not related to the show itself but rather to an actor: Brian Austin Green wants to be Green Lantern and I couldn't think of anyone BETTER than him! :D Also, also, he is a sci-fi fan! More especifically "an old school “Star Wars” fan, [who] was a bit disappointed by the way the new ones came together." *GRINS*

Other series I've been following...

Chuck )

HIMYM )

Castle )

Big Bang Theory )

Going on a complete tangent here, I had a very nice Holy Week. Lots of food, fondue, shopping, family, friends, and swimming pool. I think I deserved these days off after the not so great March I had, and also because now I have FIVE jobs! Yep, that's right! I got an invitation to be THE infectious disease doctor at a very conservative, well-known and good hospital here in Rio! I'm so happy about it! :)

And at last but not least...I also got myself a Dreamwidth account, in case fandom decides to abandon LJ after their next bad move! :P Feel free to add me!

I messed up while backing up LJ to DW, so, all my entries have the same icons, but it's all there, entries and comments, and I hope that the icons will be soon fixable. I still need to figoure out how to do cross-posting (I found semagic confusing) and change my layout, though. When I have the time, obviously, which would be...not in a near future! *snort*

I do want to make a Castle layout for me, though - like you guys DIDN'T see this coming! :P

OH, which reminds me...[profile] rjann, look who has a twitter now! I never really wanted to open a twitter account, but I'm starting to reconsider it....:P

BSG and CASTLE

Yeah, I know, been away for quite some time...was preoccupied and busy with family health issues.

Nevertheless, I've been finding time between work and Darth Real Life to watch some tv (a girl gotta have some fun, right?) so, here it is my long overdue review on BSG's last episode - which was probably the BEST end to a series I've ever watched!

BSG FINALE SPOILERS! )

Now, my newest addiction - yes, kids, run for your lives before I bore you to death with my nagging for yet another show, much like I did with Farscape and BSG - CASTLE!

So, I only started watching it because it has Nathan Fillion and - HI, he is funny and pretty! Besides, I knew my [livejournal.com profile] rjann would watch it - he has a man!crush on Nathan (yeah, I know, that sounds so gay!) - so I started watching it, and I love it! But not for the reasons you guys think. Spoilers under the cut )

As for the rest of TV shows...

I stopped following Heroes - I'm going to wait until it's over to watch it all IF it seems worth the time.

Terminator hadn't been at its best this second season, but the last couple of episodes were better! Gotta love the Connor disfunctional family!

Big Bang Theory continues to be one of the best comedies out there to me - nowadays it's better then HIMYM or Chuck - and although my favorite characters are Sheldon and Penny, I don't see them together simply because Sheldon is assexual. No, I don't see Penny with Leonard either, not at this point in the series anyway. I have read a few Penny/Sheldon fics that are cute, and I think they could work together, but Sheldon would never EVER express any kind of romantic or sexual interest in anyone. Sure, as a fic, it's a guilty trip, but it will never be canon. So, I can't buy P/S.

How I met your Mother has seen better days, but I sure loved the "sleep over" episode. Robin's show on the TV and the nightshirt/nightgown storyline where hilarious! AND we can TOTALLY see Allyson's belly!

And Chuck continues to be the silly/funny/cute spy show on monday that it's supposed to be, now with some story development with all that Orion stuff. Can't wait to see Tricia Helfer's special guest appearance!

Carnival 2009 and my birthday!

So, last week was carnival here in Rio. Since I never liked the heat, and nowadays I don't care much for the usual carnival activities in my town, I traveled to Teresópolis, a nearby city with a much cooler climate - and where we could enjoy a pool and my mother's cooking! I could only enjoy three days of the entire holiday, because I had work the other two days, but it was worth nevertheless!

Terê pictures! )

To everyone else on my f-list who lives in Rio - I'm setting up a schedule for the entire year to accommodate every one of my friends from my different acquaintances/groups! :D

This weekend, since yesterday was my birthday, was quite full of activities - which also involved eating!

Pizza Hut and the IBEU family )

Birthday lunch with my family )

Dinner with my co-workers )

Lunch with my NERD friends...with a surprise visitor! )

This weekend was certainly a BLAST! Today was quite special, because I haven't hang out with the NERD GANG for quite a while, and I missed all our crazy-nerd-fandom talk! "Que saudade disso tudo gente!!!" XD

But I still need to meet a few friends - some were out of town this entire week!

HYMIM, BIG BANG THEORY and BATTLESTAR GALACTICA

YAY! "How I met your mother" has certainly improved when compared with the start of this season! I continue to love Barney, Robin, and Marshall and Lily! I wanted to hug Barney in "Benefits" and glomp both Marshall and Lily in "Three days snow"! LILYPAD AND MARSHMALLOW ARE SO CUTE TOGETHER! I LOVE THEM!

"Big Bang Theory" on the other hand hasn't been as funny as before, but hey, I still love the show!

As for BSG...last week I was not so sure how I felt about the show - if the last episodes of the season would end in a good or bad way. Yeah, we had a few surprises - first with Starbuck, and at the end finally discovering who is the 5th Cylon... But last night...WHOA! Talk about one striking revelation after the other, and one dashing/courageous/stupid/unexpected move after the other from various characters! Just like my very human and believable show from before. The best, however, was at the very end...SPOILERS )

...a lab accident away from becoming a super villain!

SO, lots of things happened this past few months! And since tonight we have a few series coming BACK from their hiatus, I thought I just HAD to update this thing!

Heroes )

Big Bang Theory )

Chuck )

How I met your mother )

The Sarah Connor Chronicles )

Though I cannot forget - THIS WEEK WE HAVE NEW BATTLESTAR GALACTICA! YAY FOR ADAMA GOODNESS! :D

Oh, and I know you already know I travelled to Buenos Aires, Argentina. But I never really had the will or time to write about it until now. So...my trip to Buenos! )

Anyway, it was a very good time with my friends. Now, let's see how many months it will take me to show you pictures! ;)

What else...on the work front! )

Well...that's all folks! See ya later!

I know I've been MIA - work, work, work all around me! - but I've been thinking about you guys and how much I miss posting here all the time!

I still owe you my report on my Buenos Aires trip! As well as all my reviews for my favorite tv series for the past weeks - just let me say how much I love Barney and Robin, and how freaked I am that everyday Sheldon looks more and more like me! XD And that I can't wait for JANUARY AND NEW BATTLESTAR GALACTICA EPISODES! :D

Anyway....MERRY CHRISTMAS AND A HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE!

Hey guys! Just wanted to let you know that I'll be travelling this friday to Buenos Aires, and will only be back on wednesday night - and very late at night!

Anyone in Rio want something from there?

On a totally unrelated topic, but very VERY funny!

Monday TV Shows Late Reviews

I know I should be studying - and I'll be in just about 20 minutes - but I just had to say something on the last HIMYM episode:

SPOILERS )

Well, since I'm here, two quick words about Heroes and Big Bang:

This week's Heroes wasn't as good as last week's. Is this show really doomed to never reach its own first season's greatness?

As for Big Bang, it was funny, and every week I grow more and more concerned on how I'm alike Sheldon! ;)
therealmarajade: (Default)
2008-10-02 01:13 am

OMG!

I don't know if I should be more disturbed by:

1) the fact that I'm as naïve and gullible and daydreamer as HIMYM's Marshall;
2) the realization that I'm as obnoxious as BBT's Sheldon;
3) the fact that I considered both options;
4) or that I'm actually a COMBO of both! ¬¬"

Yes, saw this week's HIMYM, BBT and Heroes. The first was funny, but I prefered last week's. The second was WAY better than last's weeks - which kinda sucked. And the last one is starting to feel like first season - though Claire and her mothers kinda felt weird.

Letters from a raving rambling nut

Dear Paolini,

Zombies? REALLY?? If they next time they appear, they do so yelling "BRAAAAAINS!" I'm putting the book down. Mind you, I'm only halfway through Brisingr and so far I'm only interested in Roran's storyline. Super powerful and all doing Eragon is annoying. And now, ZOMBIES??

Not amused,

Debora

***

Dear Heroes writers

A few bulletpoints for you:

- Mohinder and Maya STILL $UCK! Especially stud Mohinder. Yikes!
- Nikki's evil twin >>> Nikki, even more so if that means NO MICAH WHATSOEVER THIS SEASON!
- Petrelli family still ROCKS!
- Love Mama Petrelli's superpower
- Love Peter and Claire
- Still love Hiro and Parkman
- Mr. Bennett is still TEH MAN! My favorite character EVER in this series

Worriedly,

Debora

***

Dear Barney,

Please, allow yourself to become Robin's boyfriend. It would be DE-wait for it-lightful!

Love,

Debora *who LOVED the last HIMYM episode*

September so far...

...has been very nice! Perhaps not as good as August, but nice nonetheless!

First weekend, we had JEDICON - our SW convention - and although in previous years it had seen better editions, on this one I got to see [livejournal.com profile] hgranado, who came from London to visit, and [livejournal.com profile] priwskywalker who also came, but from São Paulo. I think what annoyed me the most was that another person that wasn't me made the SW EU lecture, but...oh, well. :P They had an amazing customs exhibiton, though, including a life-sized speeder bike! :D

On that sunday I had lunch at my sister's apartment, with our mom and my boyfriend. [livejournal.com profile] rjann sure enjoyed the PS3 "Force Unleashed" preview Igor - my sister's boyfriend - had! But not as much as the real game - more on that later! ;)

Last friday I saw "Mamma Mia!" It's sort of a silly movie, with a few dialogue sentences only meant to connect a whole bunch of Abba songs, but the music was contagious, we kept clapping and singing, and moving our feet to the rhythm of the music! One thing bugged me though. little spoiler ) I left the movie theater singing though.

This past weekend, we celebrated [livejournal.com profile] nandaweasley's birthday! We went to Outback - LOVE this restaurant! - and we ate, and we talked A LOT! Lots to catch up on! Sunday I had to work, but it was, thankfully, a quiet shift.

So. About "Force Unleashed". NO, I haven't played it - yet. But [livejournal.com profile] rjann has. Last night, while I was WORKING, he spent about 5 hours playing it - he told me the last, what, two or three hours, were spent trying to reach just one more level...than just one more...one more level...and one more...LOL. XD At least now I can play with Mara! Yep, he unlocked her character! And, until he finishes the game - which should happen by the end of the week - I'll stand by my belief that, in the end, Mara Jade kills Starkiller. It's so obvious! Vader tries to betray Palpatine, whom in turn sends his apprentice, Mara, to kill Vader's. :) :P But, yeah, if you are wondering, it sure sounds like a GREAT game!

OH, before I go, one link, two countdowns, and one question!

Star Wars (and others) dolls!

TWO DAYS to the Brazillian IRON MAN DVD release! YAY!

Also TWO DAYS for Brisingir! Yes, the third installment on Paolini's saga - or should I say the SW/LOTR/HP mixed homage? XD

FIVE DAYS to a new HIMYM episode! AWESOME! And I have the gut feeling it's going to be LEGEN - wait for it - DARY! XD

At last, the question...I have a Tungsten E, but it's old, and I never really got very used to it - always forgot to charge it - and I was thinking about buying a smartphone. Thing is, I have a few programs - NOT DATA, or PIM - in there that I'd like to still use in my new smartphone. That plus everyone I know who owns a PDA has a Palm OS based one, and most of the medical programs I know are in that system - although a few come in Blackberry and WM OS. So...is there any way to make a Palm OS PROGRAM work in another operating system?

Gotta go now... Let's see what I'll do this next few weekends ahead... ;)
