There's a post-a-day thing going on this month, and while there is no
way I could ever do that, I figured I should at least post a little bit this month, especially since I haven't posted since Vividcon. At which I had a great time, and I really meant to post more about what vids I liked and may yet do so, but... eh. We'll see. I will be posting a personal post locked after this one, so if you can't see it and want to, let me know.
There have been two whole episodes
of Doctor Who I enjoyed this series - the Robin Hood one, and yesterdays, which was especially enjoyable. I can't remember the last time that happened. And I actually had no issues or complaints at all with yesterday's episode, which is even rarer. I'm afraid to hope for a more general uptrend in enjoyable episodes, but I'll take the good ones if they've got them.( Cutting for spoilers for Time Heist )
Let's see, what else. After svmadelyn
mentioned it on twitter (and after seeing Ken Burns on The Daily Show
) last week, I decided to watch Ken Burn's The Roosevelts: An Intimate History
this weekend. I didn't know what I was getting myself into - it's 7 episodes, almost 2 hours each. But PBS has made it available online, via the web, Apple TV, and Roku among others, which has made it very easy, and it's very good. If you're a history buff at all, you'll enjoy this. Also I just found out that Meryl Streep and Paul Giamatti are among those lending their voices to this, so that's neat.
I am also watching Outlander
, which. ( Cutting for spoilers for 1x07 )
Let's see, what else am I doing fannishly. Still majorly into MCU, particularly Captain America, and still majorly into Steve Rogers/Bucky Barnes. But for whatever reason, even though I'm really into that, unlike other major pairings of the past, this doesn't keep me from enjoying other pairings involving Steve and/or Bucky. *shrug* I'm just really into this particular one right now, and possibly forever. I am both looking forward to and dreading the next movies because of all this.
Still sort of in Teen Wolf
, and marathoned the last season in 1 day (well, more like skimmed through episodes) so I could watch the finale live. I'm still sort of eh about the season as a whole, but there are several things about the finale that I thoroughly enjoyed: ( Spoilers for Season 4 finale )
Finally, I've gotten into Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries
in a major way. It's Australian TV, so it's a little hard to get, but it's about an independent lady of 1920s Melbourne and the mysteries she solves and the trouble she gets into. I'm going going to say it's perfect, because it's not (it's got a few rather glaring racism issues in a couple of eps, for example), but it's got a ton of different awesome ladies being awesome in different ways, and the male characters are pretty great, too. You can see all the Miss Fisher posts I've reblogged on Tumblr here
, but here's
a good pimping post. Season 1 is currently streaming on Netflix, and both seasons are for sale as DVD sets on Amazon, but I just recently found out that Acorn TV (just Google it) has both seasons for online streaming and they currently have a 1 month free trial offer. Go forth and enjoy! Season 3 has just been greenlit, and I'm looking forward to it a lot.
