Hoo boy! Summer has given me more time for tv, including a new obsession (for which I totally blame LJ friends, and I would blame you by name if I remembered properly). I hope you will read the parts for any shows you watch, and discuss, even if you haven't seen some of these eps in a while! Just skip the ones that don't interest you. Don't let the size of the post deter you. Talk to me about tv! That's kind of why I'm here on LJ!

I miss Chuck; we're waiting for last season on DVD!

In no particular order, with spoilers through the episodes indicated:

Greatest American Hero into early s2 )



The Sarah Jane Adventures, through 2.8, but with general comments and not reviews of each episode )

Can anyone tell me how much SJA has shown in the UK? I'm so far out of it I don't know if they've completed s3, or started s4, or anything.



Psych through this week's 'Not Even Close . . . Encounters' )



Doctor Who, the whole first season of Matt Smith )



And now the moment you've all been waiting for! (What? You weren't? Huh.) Y'all have hooked me on White Collar. I know it was more than one of you, but I don't entirely remember whom to blame. Please, take responsibility in the comments (and let me talk about the show with you!).

The one person I know I can credit is [livejournal.com profile] stasha2g; I liked some of her recs in other fandoms so much that I actually read White Collar fic before I saw the show, which sounds kind of crazy, but the last straw was her rec for "I Lie, I Cheat, I Steal (and I Just Don't Get Any Respect)" by fiercelydreamed. I read that story for Leverage though it's a crossover with WC and made Brilliant Husband read it, even though that's not exactly the way I see Leverage. Then I had to watch the show because the story made me helpless with laughter, and I wanted to get more of Peter, Neal, and Elizabeth. If you want another gem, by the way, read "Four Cups of Tea (and a waffle iron)" by LithiumDoll.
White Collar: we've seen 1.1–1.3 and 2.1–2.2 )

Brilliant Husband just called me in to see an ad that ran during his show; conveniently, it's on YouTube:
(30 second promo for Psych and White Collar)



OMG! Now I want Psych back! Gus, you are my man! Plus now I want to see White Collar!

When can I fit in White Collar, though?
1. We just heard that Chuck has been renewed; we're still on s2. Must finish s2, then mainline the DVDs of s3 (if available) before s4 starts in the fall.
2. I returned to the fold and resumed watching SGU (thoughts on that later—remind me, 'k?).
3. We're (re)watching Greatest American Hero (I saw it all, I think; BH saw much of it, but it's been years, and dang but it's still funny).
4. Soon Psych will return, and
5. I'll probably go back to Warehouse 13.
6. Oh, and there's Glee (known in our house as The Kurt and Mercedes Show; who's with me on this?)
7. Of course, we still have Big Bang Theory.
8. We're watching Leverage even more slowly than rewatching GAH; I think we're averaging one episode of Leverage every six weeks or so.
9. We haven't yet seen s3 of Slings and Arrows.
10. I'm sure I'm forgetting things, but those may be the shows people have urged me to start (West Wing, Man from UNCLE, I Spy) that we haven't actually started. (We watched one episode of I Spy, but I have to finish the rewatch of GAH before I do more of that, or I'm going to have some serious cognitive dissonance. I had enough difficulty with that one episode as it was. Not enough to stop me from watching more at some point, however.)

When did I last have this many shows at once? What the heck am I doing with a job? Clearly, I need to stop and just start watching shows full time! Ah—but then it might get hard to pay for cable and Netflix. Catch-22.

Back to the salt mines. (I get paid to read Old English. I don't complain too much about that!)

Just watch the little promo above.

Thanks to everyone who reminded me of clichéd moments I'd forgotten, especially on Stargate and Farscape! There were so many I had to go back and update the list; I stuck with the original list and put in additions with proper credit. Please don't hesitate to suggest more or make corrections! I'm sure I'm still missing some, perhaps many! Have to be complete, have to be complete--no, I'm fine, how are you?

I must say I'm pleased to see at least a couple of people did the meme with my additions to the list of clichés, and I feel famous for having the first item on this week's [livejournal.com profile] sg1_debrief!

[livejournal.com profile] redbyrd_sgfic asked about my previous post, "Heh- the real question, how many of these are *canon* in Stargate?!" So I started thinking, and I couldn't stop: aren't these clichés popular partly because we've seen so many on the shows themselves? I'm most active in Stargate fandom, but I'll plug in others as they come to mind. Cliches on tv )

Just won the board game Clue against Brilliant Husband and Small Child. The second game was hard fought, and, let's face it, I won by luck. We both knew who did it (SC follows the rules fine but isn't quite as sharp at the logic) and what weapon, and we were down to two rooms. I got there first.

The first game, though, was scary. BH went first. He rolled, he made a suggestion, I showed a card. I rolled, I went to the only room I could, I accused myself, and I picked a weapon I didn't have.

SC looked at her cards and shrugged. BH looked at his cards and shrugged. Both looked at their cards again and shrugged.

So I made an accusation. Miss Scarlet, in the Lounge, with the candlestick. Spot on. I won before SC got her turn. (That's why we needed a second game.) Hey, and Psych is on tonight!
