Supernatural and Veronica Mars

Last night's Supernatural, "Hollywood Babylon", has to be my favorite episode of this show yet. Not only was the story great, but I love it when Dean has a good time....and he seemed to be in hog heaven in this episode. It was filled with great in-jokes about the film/tv industry as well as the horror genre. My two favorite bits were Sam complaining that the LA weather was more like Canada (which of was Canada since they film there) and all the stuff about craft services. We had so much fun watching this episode that we immediately began to re-watch it. You can check out episodes here. And drop the cw a line letting them know how much you love the show. I will cry if they cancel it.

And also on the bubble is my beloved Veronica Mars. Our favorite spicy tiny private jane returns with new episodes on May 1st. Once again, watch and let the powers that be know that you love characters like Veronica and the Winchesters! I know I do. Watch Veronica Episodes here...

What's on my tivo?

The Mayor (that's Brian for you boyfriend is the Mayor of Drunktown...) and I watch tv. Sometimes we watch a lot of tv. But we stick to what's on the dvr list most of the time. We recently added two new shows to the rotation: Planet Earth and Deadliest Catch. I haven't watched Planet Earth yet but I have heard its brilliant...but damn if Deadliest Catch isn't the most addictive thing in the world. This is high drama people...and not a wimpy "how can I pole dance in this pink thong" pussycat girl reality television...this is danger...people die on this show. For real. We love it. I think Captain Phil is Brian's hero. You should love it too. In general, I rail against reality television...but my exception is the Discovery Channel. I love Mythbusters and have been known to spend a good chunk of a sunday watching Dirty Jobs or Shark Week. Hell, I will even watch Future Weapons if the mood strikes me.

Buy the Deadliest Catch - Season 1 (5 Disc Set)

Brian watches The Riche$ (which I like but have not been watching regularly), 30 Rock, Sopranos, and Boston Legal religiously. We both love crime shows: Bones, Numbers, CSI Vegas, Law & Order: SVU and Criminal Intent made the tivo list. Then we both feel the love for Veronica Mars, My Name is Earl, Office, Supernatural, Dresden Files, and Heroes. Then I have my geek shows: Smallville, Stargate, and Stargate Atlantis. We love Battlestar but we fell behind and are desperately waiting for the the season three dvds and dodging spoilers left and right.

So I think that's it...lots of tv...sweet sweet tv.

Potential for sweet Buffy dolls

So some of you may know that not only am I a rabid collector of Buffy figures...but I also collect fancy fashion dolls mostly by Robert Tonner (and a few from asian companies). Tonner just came out with some fabulous DC dolls and also the upcoming Marvel Spiderman etc. They are fabulous and make Sideshow toys look like ugly dimestore toys. In this interview, Robert Tonner expresses an interest in getting the Buffy license...i nearly lost my mind for joy. So check out the interview and then check out the fabulous dolls at his website. Then consider shooting them an email on their "contact us" page and letting the company know that you would be interested in a high quality buffy doll line. Really, I swear you would not be dissppointed!

Goodbye to you...Music and Buffy

Buy The Spirit Room By Michelle Branch
So I am buying lunch in the Dominick's this morning and I spontaneously begin to get goosebumps then nearly break down in tears. And while it might be pms...I quickly realized that it was the Michelle Branch song, "Goodbye to You" playing over the speakers that caused the sudden emotional ridiculousness. That song is forever tied to one of the most memorable final scenes of Buffy in one of its best episodes ever, Tabula Rasa. Whenever I hear that song, I immediately see a broken, crying Willow curled up on the floor while Tara is moving out. I see Dawn's anger at what she sees as another grownup abandoning her and Tara's heartbreaking decision to walk away from someone she loves dearly but who has also betrayed and violated her in the worst way possible. And then we find Buffy at the Bronze. Willow's failed attempt to 'fix' Buffy's depression with magicks has only made things worse. The spell made her forget all of her pain temporarily only to have every hateful element of her life come crushing back: the death of Joyce, dying, and then being ripped from Heaven being the most painful. The Buffy we see in that moment is a shell of her former self. When Spike attempts to comfort her, she turns away in disgust. Then when we cut back to the Bronze we see Buffy and Spike locked in a kiss. But its hardly a kiss of passion...its more of emptiness. When everything hurts so bad that the only way to keep from screaming is to grab onto someone so tightly. Spike was Buffy's lifeline at that moment and their first kiss kept her from sinking into complete darkness. Its such a powerful montage of scenes and the beautiful lyrics singing were the final touch.

Of all the things I've believed in
I just want to get it over with
Tears form behind my eyes
But I do not cry
Counting the days that pass me by

I've been searching deep down in my soul
Words that I'm hearing are starting to get old
It feels like I'm starting all over again
The last three years were just pretend
And I said,

Goodbye to you
Goodbye to everything I thought I knew
You were the one I loved
The one thing that I tried to hold on to
The one thing that I tried to hold on to

I still get lost in your eyes
And it seems that I can't live a day without you
Closing my eyes and you chase my thoughts away
To a place where I am blinded by the light
But it's not right

And it hurts to want everything and nothing at the same time
I want what's yours and I want what's mine
I want you
But I'm not giving in this time

And when the stars fall
I will lie awake
You're my shooting star

New episode coming shortly kids...

Buffy Season 8 #2...Long Way Home Part II

Oh..I was very VERY excited to read this. Those who have heard my fond desires for a BANDER-ship know how very excited I was. I actually squealed for joy in the Chipotle during a busy lunch period...then I laughed so hard that people stared at me while I read the Lando clothing analysis by soo good. I am even warming up to Dawn. (Though the unschooled anthropologist in me wondered where/what exactly a giant-size Dawn did for the loo? Yes I know...very gross...but you know you wondered too!)

Okay...full review with girly squealing et al coming up in the next podcast...which I hope to record this weekend. So send me your thoughts on issue #2!
