I have a double-digit list of posts I want to make but no time in which to write them up. :( Yet, I am feeling chatty today so I will post something completely useless.

Contrary to the impression given by my absence from this journal most of last year, I am actually still watching some TV shows. In fact, in the last year I have adopted creative strategies for enhancing the viewing experience of several of them. For instance, did you know that:
- Legend of the Seeker is infinitely more enjoyable if you place a candelabra (the more serious and gothic the better) beside the TV screen while watching it?
- Merlin is the perfect Sunday night TV to half watch over dinner? (It really makes ZERO sense to me as a show when it's not on a Sunday night at 7:30.)
- The Vampire Diaries is greatly improved by watching it in a park at night? longer explanation herein )
- True Blood is improved with red wine and trashy food of any variety? This one's a no-brainer, but does mean I can only watch in moderation. ;)

I require no added incentive to watch Community, so I don't have a strategy for that one, other than download quickly, watch, laugh.

Smallville, on the other hand, has required countless innovations over the years. There was a brief glory period where [ profile] supacat and I discovered a flourless, orange cake thing we dubbed 'Clark cake' (it tasted like Clark), but then the bakery stopped making it. :( A before-and-after strategy helps somewhat. For instance, fortifying with Indian takeaway beforehand and taking a ranty walk around the park afterwards. A dog on one's lap is also comforting. Due no doubt partly to the fact it sounds similar to 'park' (and to the fact he associates it with both walks and cuddles), Bob Bob now cocks his head and wags his tail when I say 'Clark'. Bless!

But here's where I'm stumped: what the heck is going to make Hellcats more watchable? Because apparently I'm loyal enough to Tommy to download that crazy shit. *blinks* This is going to require a whole new thing...

Suggestions?! Does anyone else have crazy viewing rituals to improve your TV experience, or is it just me?

Phew! I don't think I could have lasted two weeks without this show--last week was very empty! Evil is making the premedicated choice to be a dick )

I haven't been posting on it (yet) but I have been watching the new season of True Blood and greatly enjoying it--what a relief to have some TV escapism back! And today I just finished a big job so I thought it would be a good chance to recap on the first few eps while waiting for the new one.

I didn't get a chance to post on last week's True Blood episode but I did natter in [ profile] taragel's journal about it. And I'm still besotted with this show.

I have a couple of days off so there may be some spamming of LJ on my part. I apologise in advance!

Poll or no poll, I cannot resist talking about True Blood. I am so hooked!

After months of the TV-drought that is the US hiatus, I am suddenly spoiled rotten with good television! This week was so brilliant for so many shows I don't know where to start.

I'm even loving Mad Men! (brief but spoilery thoughts for 2.09) )

And of course there is my new love, True Blood (spoilers for 1.04) )

At least his lame 90s dad likes him (spoilers for GG 2.05) )

And a Cameron-centic episode of TSCC? To good to be true (spoilers for TSCC 2.04) )

very brief thoughts on Sarah Connor Chronicles 2.03 )

even briefer response to this week's Gossip Girl )

and I confess I've fallen for True Blood (with spoilers for first three eps) )

Oh, and quick folllow-up to this post: I'm planning to make weekly vidding meta-chat posts on Sundays my time (Saturday US).
