Television: Sleepy Hollow, Revenge, Vampire Diaries

With both Revenge and Vampire Diaries, one of the feelings I've primarily been feeling so far this season is relief.

AoS & Supernatural tonight! I know not everyone is enthused by AoS, but I'm really enjoying it so far. And I'm really looking forward to the Supernatural premiere although spoilers just from what people have said in interviews and stuff )

Mostly Vampire Diaries 4x21 -- She's Come Undone (and a bit on other things)

I had the chance to watch TVD 4x20 and 4x21. I didn't have too many thoughts about the backdoor pilot for The Originals, so, briefly, not-really-spoilers )

I have more thoughts on "She's Come Undone", though not terribly many: brief spoilers )

I've been watching Spartacus here and there for the last few weeks and really enjoying it. I've just started the third (last) season. It is incredibly bloody, though, so if that's a concern, it's not the show for you. But the characters are great and I love the way the show has illustrated the complexities of the system of oppression the Romans had set up.

And, on a less cheerful note, for some reason, seeing all the enthusiasm for IM3 makes me feel... less enthused? IDK, I've gotten to the point where I feel like it can't possibly live up to the fandom hype.

Eh, I probably just feel that way because I haven't see it yet and won't get the chance for at least another week. I don't know.

There are many good things about having a steady job that you like -- but I do find myself with a lack of free time.

I've been watching and enjoying Supernatural -- loved the episode two weeks ago with Charlie (so much love for Charlie; she's a gem) and enjoyed this week's episode as well.

I've fallen behind on Revenge and Once Upon a Time. Hopefully, I will get the chance to catch up soon.

Just Between Us: thoughts on slow-burning romances

One of the things that draws me to romances are two people that the audience sees sharing private confidences and vulnerability. They let down the walls and show their softer side.
