It's Back!

Prison Break is back and so are my recaps! I'd forgotten how much fun I had writing these. I know America is a week ahead of us, so I haven't been to any sites that talk about the new series or read any theories. I'm sure I could find somewhere to watch it online, but I'm also sure that we're going to get to a dramatic cliffhanger at some point and I'm trying to wait until then so I can see the next episode without having to wait ages!

But now, for the first time in nearly eight years, I present to you my latest Prison Break recap:

Episode 5.01 Ogygia

I feel completely incapable of concentrating on pretty much anything right now. So let's go straight to the November topics meme.

Topic 6: Favourite BFFs/platonic pairing:

Probably Michael and Sucre in Prison Break. They're like brothers, just as much as Michael and Lincoln, and it's clear that they'd do anything for each other. I still like to believe that the series ends up with them living next door to each other with their wives, Sara and Maricruz, and their various children and they all live happily ever after.

I have to say, based on the adverts and all the build-up, I expected Downton Abbey to have been a bit more wrapped up last night than it turned out to be. I suppose Mary getting married was something, even if it did happen ridiculously quickly, but all their declarations of love fell a bit flat cos Henry's left no impression on me whatsoever and it felt like their wedding came out of nowhere. I know their romance has supposedly been building all season, but it hasn't felt like it. (In fact this is the first time all year I've actually remembered his name, which says a lot about how invested I've been in this storyline!)

At least they finally acknowledged that Mary might have some issues being married to a man who races cars when her first husband died in a car crash. Of course this only merited a short scene and then it was all forgotten again, but still. That's probably the best you can hope for with Downton now.

And I still think Bertie's going to go back to Edith. That's going to happen in the Christmas special. It has to.

Anyway, onto the November meme. Topic 5 is Favourite Romantic Pairing:

Now, I know I've been saying that pretty much every single topic so far is a tricky one, but this is definitely the hardest yet. Shipping is such a huge part of my fandom life and, as with TV shows, I usually go through stages of being super obsessed with a ship for a while before finding a new one and becoming super obsessed with that, but just because my super-obsession has moved on doesn't mean that I don't still love the old pairings or ship them any less. So rather than trying to pick one, I'm going to go with a top ten eleven in no particular order:

1. Eleven/River (Doctor Who)
2. Roslin/Adama (BSG)
3. Sydney/Vaughn (Alias)
4. Willow/Tara (Buffy)
5. Michael/Sara (Prison Break)
6. Chuck/Sarah (Chuck)
7. Xena/Gabrielle (Xena)
8. Castle/Beckett (Castle)
9. Max/Logan (Dark Angel)
10. Mulder/Scully (The X Files)
11. Brennan/Booth (Bones)

Even this was difficult and I keep thinking of other pairings that I could have put on the list. I may have a bit of a shipping problem...

It's November and that means I get to decide if I want to attempt NaNo again this year. I'm thinking probably not since I have enough trouble writing journal entries, let alone an entire 50,000 word story. But maybe I should have a go at writing something. Maybe my difficulty writing is because I'm out of practice and I should force myself to do it more. But I don't like the idea of writing something bad, even though I know I'm the only one who'll ever read it.

I could also attempt NaBloPoMo again. That's a bit easier since I don't have to write that much, just something every day. Of course in that case I'd have to remember to visit LJ on a regular basis, which could be an issue.

Hmm, I'll see how I feel. But for now, have some rambling about TV shows:

Bones, Castle, Doctor Who, Prison Break )

I've been back in the UK for a week now but I've been being my usual unsociable self and avoiding posting or commenting on LJ. So, how is everyone? Doing well I hope.

Las Vegas and San Francisco were excellent. Vegas was my favourite, I definitely want to go back there some time. I know it's not to everyone's taste, but I loved it. Especially the view of the Strip from the top of the Eiffel Tower at night.

While I was in America I did the whole collecting of state quarters thing. I ended up with 32 states and one territory. Not bad. I didn't get California though, which is annoying since I was there.

Since returning I've been watching a lot of CSI. It's fun to watch the establishing and background shots of Vegas and be able to say I've been to those places! It's also fun to see how old some of the shots are and how things have changed!

I'm not sure if I should admit that one thing I really liked to do while over there was think about TV shows! In Vegas I could imagine the kind of things Grissom and Sara might do together. In San Francisco I went to Chinatown and thought about the episode of Charmed with Piper and the ghost. And then in Alcatraz there was the episode with Phoebe and the ghost! Alcatraz also made me think a lot about Prison Break, for obvious reasons!

And now I'm back. And tired. And feeling kinda blah. It's London Pride today. I thought about going but didn't really feel up to it. Or anything really. Can I still blame jetlag for this? Or maybe the weather. Eh, I'll blame both.

I've caught up on Chuck season 3! Yay! The DVD boxset is truly one of the most glorious inventions of our time.

I'm half tempted to do picture recaps for it like I did with Prison Break, but it's a lot of work for something no one will actually read.

Speaking of Prison Break though, I couldn't help but notice certain similarities:

Also, I need to get me some Chuck icons.

So, the current [ profile] picspammy challenge is Fifty and as I'm a big shipper I thought doing 50 Shippy TV Moments would be a good idea. I've never actually posted to the community before so I'm a bit nervous about this though.

Anyway, here's the picspam. I hope you like it! And if you disagree with any of my choices or think I've left any obvious ones out please say so in the comments.

For my next list I came up with the idea of doing TV Presidents. I was going to do my top five TV Presidents but it turns out I could only come up with four. I toyed with the idea of including Kang from that Simpsons Treehouse of Horror episode but I thought that would be a bit of a stretch.

You know this would have been a lot easier if I watched 24. That show seems to go through a ridiculous number of presidents.

Ok, so I'm really getting into this list thing, although I do wish I could think up a better name for them than 'lists'.

This time I have done a picspam celebrating my favourite redheaded ladies from television.

Fandom post ahead! I'm not sure if anyone on my friends list is actually going to be interested in this, but I've written it and I'm going to post it.

~*~ ~*~ ~*~


This list came about because I was watching a programme about the greatest TV shows of the decade. It was a terrible list that made no sense and made me quite angry so I decided to write my own. But instead of TV programmes I decided to do pairings that I’ve supported from the past ten years. They bring me squee and sadness in equal measure yet I still ship my little heart out.

The Rules: For a ship to be included it must have existed, at least in part, during the ten years spanning 2000 to 2009. So ships from programmes that started in the nineties and ran into the noughties are ok, but ships from programmes that finished before 2000 are not, even if I discovered/continued shipping them in the noughties. (Sorry Maddie/David.)

Because there was no way I was going to be able to put these in order of preference (I love them all!) I’ve listed them in chronological order instead:

You have to be with the person you love. )

Dammit Torchwood. Did you not get the message about TV shows not depressing me? You suck me in with a couple of excellent episodes and then go and rip my heart out.

Go sit over there with Prison Break. I'm not talking to either of you any more.

Prison Break: The Final Break
Part 2: Free

It's The Final Breakout! )
crystalcazzie: (Sara Smile)
Here is it. The final Prison Break. Called, appropriately enough, The Final Break. It's split into two episodes but is really one feature length special. It's split into two recaps cos Livejournal won't let me have a big long one.

Prison Break: The Final Break
Part 1: The Old Ball and Chain

May I Present To You, Mr and Dr Scofield )
crystalcazzie: (Sara Smile)
It's the finale! And my longest recap so far!

Episode 4.22 Killing Your Number

I Want A Happy Ending Dammit! )
crystalcazzie: (Sara Smile)
I was getting bored of my Prison Break icons, so I have a new Happy Dr Sara icon for the occasion.

Episode 4.20 Cowboys and Indians

crystalcazzie: (Prison Break Hammock Sex Note)
Well, yesterday was a horrible day at work and I was annoyed at how I felt so bad about it I couldn't enjoy the fact that it was the last day before my four day weekend. I'm feeling better today though, which pleases me.

I'll probably spend some time today on the Prison Break recaps. In fact I have the next one ready now:

Episode 4.19 SOB

She Really is a Bitch )
crystalcazzie: (Prison Break - Good Place for Sex)
Not many episodes to go now! It's all very exciting.

Episode 4.18: Vs

It's Brother Against Brother! )

The cat was sick on my bed last night. Lovely. I decided it was a good excuse to buy myself a new quilt, a nice thinner one for summer, which means it's going to be freezing cold now.

The Prison Break recaps are coming along. I find myself struggling to write though, as though my mind is foggy and I can't quite work out what I want to say. It's the same reason why I don't update LJ as much as I should. I want to make posts but I can't think of how to say what I want to.

Anyway, there's not much Prison Break left. In fact I believe the finale is on in the States tonight, so I may have to avoid PB related internet sites for a few days. It's not too long until we get it here, only Tuesday. I can last four days. I think.

Actually, with the way I've been playing Lord of the Rings Online recently, I haven't been visiting sites nearly as much as I used to, so it shouldn't be a problem. I'll just have to be careful on LJ.

Also, I'm going to see Star Trek tomorrow and it is going to be awesome.
