Sleepy Hollow is already on its third episode. Man, feels like it started just yesterday.

spoilers through Sleepy Hollow 1x03 )

Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. has a very long name. I will probably end up calling it AoS a lot.

spoilers through AoS 1x02 )

Elementary just had its premiere last week, so spoilers for Elementary 2x01 )

All of those shows are definitely staying on my 'to watch' list.

I haven't had a chance to watch Revenge yet. I kinda burned out last season on both Revenge and Once Upon a Time, but I've heard some good things about Revenge's premiere, so I'm going to try to watch last week's episode this Friday. OUaT, on the other hand, I think I may be done with. There are some things that I loved about the show, but S2 focused so much on stuff I didn't care about (mostly Hook) and the promo for S3 promises more of the same. Plus, I'm kinda in a place with that show where it seems like I disagree both with the show and with the most vocal part of fandom -- not really spoilers but still )

I watched and loved Orphan Black, though the finale had some underwhelming moments. I think there's a longish wait for the second season of that, but I'm totally there for it when it comes out.

I sorta watched part of S3 of Teen Wolf but I think our relationship may be over. It's so obvious the writers don't care about anything making the slightest bit of character or show sense. I just can't handle that in a show.

Shows still to come:

The Vampire Diaries airs tomorrow. Looking forward to spoilers for spoilerish news )

I'm also going to check out The Originals because, hey, why not? We'll see if it's any good! I do love Rebekah.

Supernatural starts next Tuesday. I'm both excited and nervous. It's been a weird thing, getting back into SPN fandom. Not the least of which is discovering that, these days, there are definite camps and I'm not sharing one with most of the people I was talking about the show with back when I was watching it during S2/S3. So, that's been interesting. It's also a fascinating study in how changing the showrunner changes the focus and, in the case of SPN, changes the genre. Kripke was horror, Gamble was character drama/noir, and Carver is action-adventure.

The last show that I'm waiting to premiere is Almost Human, which won't happen until November. But, hey, Michael Ealy and Karl Urban! Let's hope it doesn't suck.

spoilers for Miller's Daughter )

I also enjoyed Revenge but I don't have any spoilery thoughts on it.
butterfly: Holmes and Watson from Elementary. (Elementary -- Holmes & Watson)
So, I'm actually keeping up with a few different shows. I'm not watching them all in real-time, but I'm more or less caught up on several:

Supernatural -- On balance, I'm having a great deal of fun. I went into the show expecting it to be as problematic as it was when I left in S4 and it's actually a bit better, especially with women and queer characters. I talk about this show A LOT on tumblr. It's kinda funny, because I went onto tumblr for Teen Wolf but I'm all about SPN there these days. I love the main plotline and I'm increasingly convinced that the show actually means to have Dean come out as bisexual which is something I never would have expected, going back into the show again.

The Following -- I'm... hesitant to suggest this show to anyone. The acting is great and I like the cat-and-mouse, but the show is troublesome in several ways. content warnings, including some character spoilers through 1x05 ) So, like I said, hesitant to recommend it. But if a show about a cult of serial killers sounds intriguing to you and my rather long list of warnings/caveats didn't throw you off, it's worth a try.

Elementary -- is a place of joy and squee. I love the show to pieces. I love the way they're creating the relationship and I love both the characters. I really love how Joan, despite her technical job, was never a 'genius wrangler' and it's very exciting to see where the show is going with Joan and Sherlock's partnership.

Revenge -- this is my drama-soap place of epic feelings. Everything is so vivid and bigger-than-life. My one tiny thing is vague spoilers for last week's episode )

Once Upon a Time -- I love this show. I can't really get all that deeply into the fandom because I am not super-sympathetic towards the villain woobies. Regina is a great character but, man, some people really seem to cut her all the slack in the world (for rape, murder, kidnapping, attempted brainwashing of a child) while coming down like a ton of bricks on relatively minor infractions by the Snowings family. It's like being in Smallville fandom all over again, except even more extreme in about every possible way. But I'm going to continue to watch and enjoy the actual show.

Dexter: So, based on the gif sets that revealed to me spoilers for the end of S6 ) at the end of last season, I decided to watch this season. Awesome decision so far! It's been fantastic. spoilers up through 7x03 )

Once Upon a Time: spoilers for 2x03 )

Revenge: Every single time I write 'Revenge', I accidentally write it as 'Revenger' at first. I blame the Avengers.

So, how does this show just keep being so awesome? spoilers for 2x03 )
butterfly: (Domina -- Atia)
I decided to try to catch up with Once Upon a Time in order to watch the premiere. Now, I've realized that I'm not going to catch up in time, since I only just finished episode 12 (Skin Deep), but I do have some thoughts thus far.

spoilers through 1x12 )

So, I'm going to see how many other episodes I can watch before the S2 premiere tonight.

The other show coming back tonight that I'm very excited about is Revenge. Kinda amused that both OUaT and Revenge feature as their main character a strong woman whose signature color is red (love that red jacket on Emma, btw. Reminds me of the one that Martha wore in S3 of Doctor Who).
butterfly: (Young At Heart -- Sarah Jane Smith)
I went to see my dad this weekend and, as always, we bonded by watching things. This is the only way we really know how to bond. So, I watched the first three episodes of Once Upon a Time (he's also seen Grimm; he says OUAT is better).

I haven't seen Grimm, so I can't speak to which is better, but OUAT is good.

It's an interesting show. Somehow I'd missed that Jennifer Morrison was in it, so it was nice to see her.

very basic spoilers for the first three episodes )

I think that I'll try to catch up on the rest of the season and add it to the shows that I'm watching.
