First, we watched the finale of 'House' last night...
Spoilers below! )

In other news, Arbitrar of Quality is now up to Crush (or "For our next experiment, we'll play latter-day Mozart at Spike and see if it makes him jump out a window")

Go read, he has a lot of good thoughts. In his review of 'Blood Ties' he commented on the growing friendship vibe between Buffy and Spike and said he liked it. As for this ep, here's his musings on the 'ship:

It turns out that Buffy was right all along: the chip doesn't represent true change. She, and we, end up more totally convinced than before that Spike is incapable of real love. And the episode makes a strong case for the fact that, "shippers" be damned, a Buffy/Spike relationship cannot happen under the present circumstances. Period. Let's hope the show sticks to it.
[...]
Notice the way I phrased the statement about the B/S pairing, "under the present circumstances." Just an idea, but... If Spike is really that into Buffy to the point where he's denying his vampire identity (we've seen hints of that), you know what he could try, as a final act of total desperation? Have Willow make him a soul. There are lots of issues there, not the least of which being the loophole in the one curse our heroes know, but I think it's worth pondering.


Things are going to get *so* interesting! :)

We recorded 'House' last night. (Darcy watched 'Johnny English' on DVD with the children, I got some tidying and writing done!) The only problem being that someone (that would be me, since I was the one who pressed record etc) accidentally pressed a button on the cable remote. When we sat down to watch it at 10pm there was a blue box obscuring approx. half the screen (bottom half). It is a testament to the greatness of the show that we were nevertheless riveted the entire time. Cut for spoilers )

And now I really, really can't wait for the second half! *bites nails*

I'll try to catch up on comments as soon as I can.

Doctor Who continues to be entertaining, but not all that much more. Ten shouts too much when he's angry - and I'm not sure whether to blame the writers, the actor or the director. Maybe all three? Also the complete lack of continuity on the emotional front is a bit annoying. Ah well, it's nice not being obsessed. :)

A few little thoughts on 'House vs. God'. Spoilery obviously. )

A Doctor Who question: Was last week's episode *important*? We missed it what with being in London (specifically I think we were on the tube at the time) and then for some annoying reason it didn't show up on replay! *grumblegrumblegrumble* Anyway - any major plot developments that I should be aware of?

Watched House this week... )

On a completely different note, 'My Name Is Earl' has possibly the best set-up of a sitcom *ever*!

(Have recorded, but not seen, 'Green Wing').

Wishing a
Very, very Happy Birthday to [livejournal.com profile] asta77!

I will always be grateful to you for pointing me in the direction of 'House', my only 'must-see' show at the moment! :)

So, in your honour, I will try to remember the article I read a few weeks ago about how 'House' is based on Sherlock Holmes (according to the creator).

It's very early, but since I'm here anyway I thought I'd show off my new House icon (by [livejournal.com profile] magicfaye)! Because OMG it shows *exactly* why I love the show. :) And why you should all watch it! (10pm, thursday night (TONIGHT!), Channel Five)

*happy sigh*

I could just sit and watch it all day...

ETA: It's totally sharable!!!
