Heads Up for [livejournal.com profile] dangermousie's TV viewing schedule for April.

i.e. What I'll be babbling about in the coming month:

Battlestar Galactica

What: A post-apocalyptic scifi show, BSG follows the ragtag group of human survivors and the Cylons (artificial intelligence) who pursue them. It's grim, clever, and gorgeously written and acted. I cannot possibly explain the premise very well :)
Why: BSG is back for its fourth and final season, and if the premiere episode is any indication, it's as excellent as ever. It's on every Friday, so expect a lot of babble and picspam every weekend. And at any random times the feeling strikes me.

Doctor Who

What: British TV show and if you haven't heard about it, I have no idea where you have been. The Doctor is a Timelord travelling through time and space with a companion in a blue police box. Yes, that's right.
Why: Another fourth season! This looks to be funny and clever, i.e. business as usual, plus I love the companion and Ten himself is irresistable.

Powerful Opponents

What: Korean, 16-episode drama which starts on April 14. Our heroine is the first female Presidential bodyguard, who is appointed to guard the President's son.
Why: I love tough women who have to actually protect their weaker (and younger!) OTP. Doesn't happen often. The female lead is awesome, the male lead is gorgeous, there are going to be guns, fights, and a love square. I am SO in. You have no idea.

Zettai Kareshi (Absolute Boyfriend)

What: Japanese, 11-episode drama starting on April 15 (I think?), a comedy/romance with scifi overtones. It's about an office-worker who accidentally ends up ordering an android lovebot and has to deal with the situation.
Why: Leaving aside the giggle-inducing premise and the hotness of the male lead (Mokomichi! HOT! And he also had a meal or a dozen so I don't feel ill when I see him shirtless!), this is based on one of my favorite mangas ever, by one of my fave authors, Yuu Watase. I am so eager to see it in drama form.

So here are my four shows. In addition to obviously whatever I choose to binge on.

Did I mention the shocking fact that a few weeks ago I actually watched an episode of American Idol (was hanging out with someone who watches it regularly) and I actually liked it.

I think I'll try watching it regularly now. When is it on?

I think I like the 17-year old kid everybody likes the best, the best too. Am not very original. He has a gorgeous voice though. Also, he has no dreads like the other teenager. I approve. Even if that attitude about 'nice, clean-cut kids' turns me into my own grandmother.

And was very amused by...*pauses looks up name* Danny Noriega because he seriously was trying so hard to be and look like an idoru singer (aka Japanese boyband singer who often looks more like a girl than I do). He was even wearing one of those drama-type v-sweaters. But he is gone, which is a pity for where can I see his like again? Ah, yes. I can pull out a KAT-TUN or Arashi performances.

Oh, and I liked the Orlando Bloom-lookalike who's been booted since. I have no idea if he can sing, but he sure was purty. What? Nobody said I was a music afficionado.

When is season 4 of Doctor Who set to air?

And when do we get more Moonlight?

Also, do you find yourself not wanting to even check out certain shows based on the subject matter, even if everyone on your flist loves them?

With me it's:

1. Friday Night Lights. Critically acclaimed, blah blah. Also, people on my flist love it. But it's about high school football in Texas. The only way I'd be less interested in this topic is if it was in Khmer with no subs. (Wait, if that was the case, I'd check it out for sheer weirdness). Short of either (a) Mr. Mousie or (b) [livejournal.com profile] fire_snake telling me it's good, I can't see myself ever checking it out.

and

2. The Office. See above, only replace "high school football" with "white collar office." Don't people spend enough time at work as is? The only way I'd watch an office drama, is if it had gorgeous people doing no work but staring longingly at each other, while the hottie boss fell in love with the seriously ill janitor girl with a greedy family, and someone turned out to be someone's long lost sibling. But then it means I'd be watching a kdrama.

and

3. Any show about over-privileged soapy high schoolers/college students. Could be the O.C. if it was still running, now would be Gossip Girl. Why would I care about overprivileged shallow immature twits who did nothing to earn their money and position? Also, if you got all this and you are still doing the 'my existence is paaaaain, feel sorry for my photogenic angst,' you better have an abusive parent waiting for you at home or someone attempting to murder the love of your teenage life.

And last but not least, only semi-related: why must people have the prerequisite of their hobby/show whatever being 'awesome quality' before admitting their liking for it? What I mean is, if your hobby is going to war zones and rescuing the wounded, I'd say that's a heck of a worthwhile hobby. But there is no need to feel ashamed if your hobby is doing crosswords. But don't insist there is a deeper societal meaning to it!

It's not as if you are only allowed to like classic entertainment either. Hello, most dramas are soaps on crack. I freely admit it. So what? I still enjoy them, I don't need to believe that it's a masterpiece of world culture. So why do so many people must insist that [insert show/book/movie here] is a masterpiece, because otherwise they feel bad for liking it. Why is 'it's entertaining to me' not enough?

I am sure everyone has seen the promo S4 Battlestar Galactica photos.

My thoughts )

In other news, this is something that I was thinking about in response to one of [livejournal.com profile] meganbmoore's posts. I realized I am rather weird in my fiction preferences in one respect: I've seen a lot of comments by people through the years that in order to really enjoy book/movie/whatever, they need a character they can identify with. And I realized that I not only do not need it, I prefer not to have a character like that. Because if there is one, I either get distracted by personal issues or bored because they aren't 'new to me.' I know I generally read/watch to get away from things in everyday, but that is pretty odd. I prefer to have no one to identify with, even if I do usually want characters to like. As I posted in the comments, 'my favorite narratives/characters are never that [identifying-with]. My favorite books are either Lymond Chronicles or Remarque's Three Comrades and I have no identification with any characters in them, male or female. My fave shows are BSG and Farscape and I really have no character who is 'like me' at all in it and don't identify with anyone. Even for my dramas, I don't really identify with most anyone in my fave dramas at all...'

To use the freshest example, I am adoring Hello My Teacher, but even though Bori is an awesome awesome heroine (smart, and optimistic, and kickass), I don't identify with her at all. And I adore Tae-In (ep 7? best confession of love ever. I loled so hard) but it would be a bit odd for me to identify with a 19-year-old troublemaker/gang leader from an abusive family with a dorky sense of humor. So yeah.

Anyway, is anyone else like this? Preferring to have characters to like but not identify with or as a POV character?

Also, checking for Hong Gil Dong subs is torture. But reading Kitchen Confidential is not.

Flist!

Flist!

Why did none of you inform me of Blue Harvest, a 48-minute long Family Guy spoof on Star Wars?.

I am getting this tonight.



Also, must restart my rewatch of Farscape. It's just I am right before the second part of IP two-parter and don't want to cry like a five year old.

...but I am going to start Angel: the Show watch.

[livejournal.com profile] morwen_peredhil's posts finally pushed me to do it. Before that I've only seen one AtS ep (I Will Remember You).

This Fred/Wes vid sort of pushed me over the edge, for who knows what reason:
