Hiatus Insanity

Oh, hiatus! Both a blessing and a curse.

On one hand, I hate the fact that I have to wait so long for my shows to come back (or eventually show up online or whatever, if we mean Pushing Daisies). On the other hand, I usually end up picking up a new show.

Or two.

Would you believe three?

Big Bang Theory: I ended up obsessively burning my way through most of S1 and finished up to the current episode of S2. I officially ship Penny and Sheldon now, as evidenced by adding an icon, a comm and reviewing more fic!

30 Rock: Thank God for iPod format downloads. I watched 43 episodes in a week. :O No Liz/Jack for me though, thank you.

Merlin: DAMN YOU F-LIST! You made me download this, you and your squee and Smallville comparisons (I particularly blame you, shardsofblu). ;D I am about to waste most of my weekend on watching it, when I should really be trying to meet my 2,000 words a week goal for thedailywriter. *facepalm*

Thank goodness most of my regular shows are back this week or next. Or I'd probably add more...

I have very little interest Merlin, despite the explosion on the flist about it, but I have been watching How I Met Your Mother episodes... I wouldn't say I'm hooked yet in the sense that it's a show I'd make a point to watch weekly, but I enjoy the episodes (and I'm not normally one for sitcoms because I can't stand embarrassment humour).

I've always enjoyed versions of the Arthurian legend, but it took the Smallville comparisons to make me give in this time...

Oo, yay! HIMYM! I've been watching that one from the beginning, and it's still my favorite sitcom right now. :)

YAY MERLIN! It is SO British Smallville. Complete with the overuse of the word "destiny."

And a big OMG on the 30 Rock. I've only been able to catch a few eps. 43 in a week?! I envy you right now.

LOL, destiny...

What can I say? It's surprisingly easy to watch eps on an iPod touch. You can take it anywhere, and all that. Thank goodness for people who convert and post these things. :D

YES!!!! Another Merlin Fan! WHOOOOT I adore this show!!! It's coming to NBC this summer - but seriously I adore this show. There's something about Merlin that just completely and utterly hooks me. I've only seen 5 or 6 episodes (I'm a bit behind) but they've been really good. So far my fav is The Poisoned Chalice...REALLY GOOD!

Yay, for Big Bang theory. I also have to watch because my best friend couldn't stop talking about. Sheldon amuses me. And the Superman references always makes me happy. :)

And yes. I ship Penny and Sheldon as well. :)

It's so funny! I haven't belly-laughed so hard in a while. It's RIGHT up my alley. :)

I have to ask what is Merlin like? Is it in a similar vain as the BBC's Robin Hood series?
htbthomas

Well, I haven't watched Robin Hood, and I haven't gotten much into Merlin either yet, so...

??

I think it's more of a reimagined prequel rather than a straight retelling. Hard to say at this point, though.

I'm glad you enjoy Big Bang Theory and I STILL look forward to your thoughts of their Christmas episode.

Where do you want me to give my thoughts? I definitely have some. :)

I need to download more Merlin. I watched the first episode last weekend and was kinda hooked, but got so bogged down with RL stuff that I neglected to download MOAR! It's very cracktastic, that show, isn't it?!

I downloaded mine from the same place you did -- except I downloaded all of them! :D

And I just finished episode six! Very cracktastic!
