As for other TV shows, I need to catch up on Poldark, have started catching up on Fearless and will post about that in one go, and I've even been watching a bit of my Smallville DVDs.

Haven't caught up with Fearless.

I got a bit muddled trying to catch up on B99, and saw the first half of 4.21 before 4.20 which was confusing. As ever – and it gets worse when E4 doesn't air it in double-bills – the show had dropped off my ‘must watch live’ list, because it’s a half-hour-slot sitcom.

And then last night I rewatched Stranger than Fiction, which was a delight, and had a moment where I went ‘I know that voice’. Linda Hunt turns up for one scene. I knew I knew her from all sorts of things, but it’s great that she was in StF.

I went to see Gifted yesterday, about which all I need to say is it’s Chris Evans playing a guy trying to bring up his brilliant niece. Logan and Hidden Figures (which makes better use of Octavia Spencer) are better films that overlap thematically, but they do not have Chris Evans playing a guy doing his best to bring up a kid.


I watched a lot of NCIS: LA season 3 episodes during last week.

and I have a lot to say about it )

I think that season 4 is going to be aired at a less intense frequency, which suits me.

Why has no-one written an NCIS: LA/Inception fusion?

B99 - As I think I said, I was watching the show a few weeks ago, got interrupted and it's taken me a while to get round to starting to catch up.

I dearly hope I get through to the season finale unspoiled – I saw a suggestive headline about season 5 and I don’t want to know anything about that yet!

I then gave Fearless a try, and Helen McCrory is certainly compelling as Emma the Lawyer. I have a feeling that there is no way it will all come together in a way that makes sense at the end of the series, though. casting spoilers and my reaction to them )

I have just got out of a rabbit-hole of sorting out my icons, motivated by the fact that i. Poldark is coming back this weekend (I appreciate their wanting to avoid Victoria, but couldn’t they have waited for Agents of SHIELD to finish? Perhaps it’s not an obvious overlap to the schedulers, but it includes me, and the way AoS is currently firing on many cylinders and its fight scenes will make me choose that first.) ii. I have stuff to say about NCIS: LA, so I’ve got icons and iii. I have more icon slots than I thought on LJ!?

I’ve been continuing to mainline the top and tail of season 3 of NCIS: LA. spoilers )

I dipped in and out of the One Love Manchester benefit concert, but from what I saw and heard I thought Ariana Grande stepped up remarkably.
shallowness: Movieverse Rogue leaning against a blank wall. (Rogue X-Men Films)
I am behind on B99 as someone called me while I was watching it last week and I never got caught up and so didn't watch the latest episode last night. I could have got caught up instead of watching NCIS:LA...however, I saw the last two episodes of season 2, 'Imposters' and 'Familia'.

And I have seen Pirates of the Caribbean: Salazar's Revenge, and when I have time, I will type up a full response, but it was much like the other sequels to the brilliant Curse of the Black Pearl, entertaining in fits, not as good as the original and best, although trading on goodwill for it. I didn't stay to see if there was a scene after the credits, but I'll probably buy it on DVD, because I'm a completist and it did nothing to put me right off the franchise a la Jason Bourne and The Huntsman Winter's War.

The trailers for the coming blockbusters made me feel like it'll be slim pickings this summer. I'll be looking to the counter-programming.
shallowness: Sky High's Warren Peace smiling (Warren Peace smiles!)
On Tuesday I posted my first new fic of the year and the first one for six months: Extreme Action, a Sky High, Layla/Warren futurefic. It was first drafted in July 2015, which wasn’t a wonderful time for me. Having a title that would suit an early 90s action flick better than a fluffy tropefic appealed to me, apparently. Anyway, a couple of months ago, as I was doing looking through some drafts, I found that this one didn’t need much work – usually I have stalled before coming up with an ending. In the editing process, it passed the thousand word mark, et voila.

For completeness on Livejournal: this spring, I’ve also reposted the following fics at Dreamwidth and A03. Read more... )
