Wow, it really IS easy to fall out of the whole LJ thing. Part of it is that I want to post about stuff that I have many thoughts on, like the Giants winning the World Series for the second time in three years and bringing Tati to the parade. Or going to the Wine and Food Affair in Sonoma and eating lots of delicious food and drinking tasty wine.

So I will post about things that I have less thoughts about, like TV!

On Elementary, Sherlock does this fake American accent that sounds really bad. But he had an American accent that sounded fine when he was on Eli Stone. So he had to figure out how to take his American accent and make it sound bad. That must be so weird.

American Horror Story: Asylum definitely continues in the vein of S1, which is to not exactly be good, but really compelling to watch. It's the only show I've watched in years where I see that there's only 10 minutes left in the episode and I'm like... really??? It's been picked up for S3, so I wonder where they're going to take it next. Having watched Prometheus recently, I would love to see a space horror miniseries!

I still enjoy Arrow, mostly because I like finding out more about the backstory. I'm not that keen about the most recent episode though, because then it felt TOO similar to Batman, and it's already so similar.

Person of Interest is so good. And it makes me happy to see all these actors from shows I love getting good recurring roles on it.

I finally started watching the first few episodes of Once Upon a Time from S2 and I think it's still quite terrible but has improved from S1. I've never said this about any TV show ever, but I was struck by how unrelentingly sexist this show is. Also, Regina's mom is exactly like mine. Good thing my mother doesn't have magic! :P

Is Once Upon A Time super sexist? I keep getting told I should watch it because it's a pretty show based on fairy tales, which would be right up my alley. But for some reason I just haven't yet, even though the first season is conveniently available on Netflix.

Well, it's not overt sexism so you aren't going to be clubbed over the head with it. There are really about ten million other things wrong with the show that are a bigger deal than that. :P But a lot of people seem to really like the show so I wouldn't discourage anyone from watching it; I mean I'm still watching it so there are aspects of it that are good.

I was gutted I missed the first few episodes of person of interest and all the places I used to get them from have moved!!

Do you use torrents? I can send you a message with a download site.
