I'm siiick.

I've been sick for about two weeks with a cold and this is the third time I've left work early. Ugh. I hate burning through my sick leave, even though I have plenty; I just like the idea of hoarding them to the point where I could take two straight months off work if I wanted to. And I think I'm just not getting better because everyone else around me is sick too, especially the childrens who don't know how to not cough and sneeze directly on other people. Pleh.

Now I am at home in sweatpants (cue Karl Lagerfeld: "Sweatpants are a sign of defeat. You lost control of your life so you bought some sweatpants" LOL) and watching The Princess Bride, the movie that still holds up even on one's thirty-ninth viewing.

Last weekend [livejournal.com profile] sarea_okelani and I went to see The King, a Korean movie about the 1% in politics in the 1990s -- a subsection of prosecutors who game the system so they can live in luxury. Though we were both impressed that it managed to make it all the way up here (and not even just LA and New York), and my current one true love Ryu Junyeol is beautiful and effective in it, it was, unlike The Princess Bride, not a great movie.

And here is why )

I've also watched the last series of Sherlock, finally. It was a slog )

According to my massage therapist, who is a funny old Korean man, all K-dramas are this: eating, screaming, and love triangles. And he's SO RIGHT.

Here are thoughts on some of the K-dramas I've watched recently. Many spoilers ahead.

Drinking Solo/Let's Drink:
The good: Oh, the food porn. Every episode starts out with one of the characters ruminating on the reason they're drinking at that moment, and invariably, it's paired with something that looks insanely delicious.

This was the drama that introduced me to Key from the K-pop group SHINee, and I gotta tell you, I LOVE HIM. His character Kibum and the two friends he hangs around with Dongyoung and Gongmyung -- students trying to pass a civil service exam, which apparently is extremely difficult -- were the highlight of the series. Their friendship was so much fun. I'd watch a show about the three of them (and Chaeyeon) being dorky together exclusively.

On the other hand... )

Descendants of the Sun:
I only wanted to watch this because Onew (one of my many future husbands) is in it. I'd heard that it was way overhyped, so I went in with pretty low expectations, which may be why I ended up kind of enjoying it for what it was. It's purdy. Part of it was filmed on location in Greece, so the backdrops are stunning.

Clench your teeth... )

1% of Something:
I did have high-ish hopes for this. I trawl Dramabeans from time to time to see what people are watching and enjoying, and this one seemed high on everyone's list for a cute romcom. It does start out that way and I liked both leads, but unfortunately, I have such a low tolerance of guys being a-holes to women that I had to jump ship by episode four. And here's why )

Reply 1997/Answer Me 1997:
There were things this series did tremendously well. I loved that they captured the feeling of being a teenager so well -- crushes, first loves, unbreakable friendships, obsessing over celebrities you're sure you'll marry someday, taking your parents for granted. Like, I lived all of that. In a different country and an entirely different culture, but I related so much to it. I was also pleasantly surprised by how gracefully they handled Junhee's one-sided love storyline; it was so quietly dignified and sad.

There were also things that I thought were not great. Mostly revolving around hyung )

Reply 1988/Answer Me 1988:
JUNGHWAN-AAAHHHHHHHH. Those damn traffic lights... )

Hwarang:
This one's a period drama that's currently airing with about six more episodes to go. It's... I have more complaints about it than compliments but that's only because it has so much potential and so many tantalizingly untapped storylines that it really could have been great. The crazy thing about it is that it seems like everyone except the two main leads has an interesting storyline, but we don't get to spend more than, like, five minutes per episode on those characters because we have to watch Aro cry and Sunwoo brood about shit (and we hardly ever know what the hell he's brooding about because there's a whole "mystery" about his background and it's been 13 episodes and WE STILL DON'T KNOW WHAT THAT IS). And then when they get together, it's a veritable black hole of chemistry.

Are you... the king? )

Way back when summer was still new and I was celebrating being freshly off work for an extended period and therefore had nothing to do -- HAPPY, HALCYON DAYS -- I got super into Korean dramas again. After watching City Hunter a few years ago and it knocking every standard for drama out of the park, I didn't feel like watching any other K-dramas, feeling quite certain none of them would measure up.

Over the summer, I managed to get over it and get three more under my belt (and a few that I started and then just ended up reading recaps for instead): School 2013; Pinocchio; and Signal.

They're all great in different ways, though if I only get to rec one, I aggressively rec Signal. More on that in a bit.

School 2013
What's awesome about it: It's a high school drama about a low-performing school and more specifically, about the "bad" class, the quiet, still-waters-run-deep student who doesn't listen to lessons but hears everything, the inexperienced teacher with her heart in the right place. It's kind of difficult, actually, to pin down an easy summary for it, because it's all about the relationships between the characters -- and I'm not talking romantic relationships; in fact, what worked so well for it was that it didn't have any canon romances, and centered itself on character growth instead. Also, it has THE CUTEST, ANGSTIEST BROMANCE EVER. (And the actors are BFFs in real life; SO ADORABLE.)

Pinocchio
What's awesome about it: A female lead who says what she means, doesn't take any crap, and goes for exactly what she wants? THANK YOU, I'LL TAKE TEN. No noble idiocy or inane love triangles to be found here; the lead couple are refreshingly communicative and honest with each other and cute cute cute.

Signal
What's awesome about it: It's my new City Hunter. After watching this, I'm off K-dramas again. The premise is a time paradox: a police profiler hears someone calling his name over a radio transmission and he finds an old walkie-talkie and starts getting messages from the past to help solve cold case crimes, from a detective who, in the present, has been missing and presumed dead for over a decade. It's part murder mystery(/ies) and part thriller, grounded in profound emotion. It's about the human connections we make, the decisions that change the course of history, the lifelong regrets about the things we never said. I can't tell you how many times I cried while watching this -- and listen, I cry at A LOT of things, but I know when I'm being manipulated to cry and when I'm not; Signal isn't by any stretch of the imagination a tearjerker melodrama. It earns every tear and gasp and howl of injustice. And the acting in this by actors who play the veteran detectives, OMG.

I will say, I didn't get fully hooked until about episode 4, so if you do give this a looksee, make it at least that far before you decide whether or not you want to go on. AND YOU WILL. (Also, watch it on Dramafever. At the time I watched it, Viki didn't have it fully subbed.)

tl;dr: Watch Signal. Do it do it do it.

I've been watching the Great British Bake-Off recently on PBS. They're two seasons behind -- it's the one with custardgate, which I only know of because of the Big Fat Quiz of the Year -- but it's new to me, so shhh on spoilers. :) GBBO is great; it's one of the only reality competition type shows I like (the other being Face Off). There's no manufactured drama or backstabbery or sniping, and all the contestants are super sweet and seem to genuinely like and respect each other. Best of all, they're crazy talented, and there is such delight in watching talented, passionate people do what they do.

Of course, watching it makes my mouth hungry as hell for everything they make, and it's also tickling the dormant baking monster in me.

Please can we bake? Oh please, oh please, oh please?


Back when I was living in Chicago I used to bake all the time; I'd bring in stuff to work just about every Monday (to the point where people got upset and demandy if I didn't). There's something about baking that's so therapeutic and satisfying -- when it comes out right. But then I moved, out of the country, so I had to shed a lot of belongings, and much of the bakeware didn't make the cut.

[moment of silence]

After yesterday's episodes of sweet doughs, featuring lots of brioches and buns and tea loaves, I decided I had to -- had to -- make my own tea loaf. So today I ventured out after work for a loaf pan, thinking Goodwill would be an excellent place to get a decent pan for little to no money. How wrong I was! The cheapest and, incidentally, crappiest one was six dollars. Six dollars? At Goodwill? NO THANK YOU. I popped into Fred Meyer next, where they were having a 25% off sale on their bakeware, so I got a brand new loaf pan for $5.50. Take that and an emphatic tsk as well, Goodwill. You used to be cool.

Anyway, my raisins and cranberries are now soaking, and if all goes to plan, tomorrow I shall be cramming a fat lot of tea loaf into my face.

Remember how I was slightly iffy on Mr. Robot a few weeks ago? Well, I changed my mind. I'm recommending the crap out of it. You should all definitely watch it, and, as I told [livejournal.com profile] sarea_okelani, sooner rather than later, because you do not want to be accidentally spoiled for the twists that happen in the back half of the episodes. There are two more to go before the season wraps up (ten episodes in all; not a huge commitment), and it's already been greenlit for a second. Super, super strong writing, and when it doesn't seem like it, there's a reason. Watching Rami Malek go about his business is a seized-by-your-lungs pleasure; he's phenomenal playing the brilliant and brittle lead. All the awards!

adelagia: (mst3k | danger small talk)
Is anyone else watching Mr. Robot? I've mostly been keeping up with it; haven't yet gotten around to the most recent episode, though. I like its premise and the unreliable narration from the main character (played by Rami Malek, who is really, really good in this role), but other aspects I'm iffy on -- like Christian Slater and, once in a while, the odd foreign film aura it takes on, so I'm not sure how I feel overall about it, or if I'm recommending it. Thoughts, anyone?

adelagia: (mst3k | danger small talk)
Oh, there's not much to report; at least, I can't think of anything all that exciting, so this post is going to be a random assortment of TV thoughts.

- I tried watching How to Get Away with Murder; I gave it two episodes and read a review of the third, and I'm done with it. Every single one of the characters is a tick-the-box caricature, and unlikable ones, at that. And it's not that unlikable characters have no place in a show; they just have to earn it, and none of them has. Also, this show seemingly has no idea what it wants to be, so it's just chucking everything it can think of onscreen and hoping the audience gets too whiplashed to notice.

- The Flash, on the other hand, is super fun. It chugs along with a joyful pace and doesn't let itself get mired too deeply in superhero angst, even when the hero does have heavy shit to deal with.

- I'm also enjoying Selfie, which I did not expect. Admittedly, the pilot is a little shaky, and Selfie is saddled with a crap name and worse trailers. I only checked it out because I like John Cho and Karen Gillan, and they are both so good in this. The writing since the pilot has been surprisingly solid as well. I rarely actually lol at TV, but last week's episode got several audible laughs out of me, thanks to the leads' total commitment to the humour, and their ability to infuse vulnerability into their characters. The ratings are pretty horrific though, so I have very little hope for this show to stick around. Sad. Check it out before it's too laaaate.

- Inspector Lewis is somehow back for another season, after quite a final ending of last series. Not that I mind. They explained the return well enough for me, and I enjoy Lewis and Hathaway running about solving murders and being dryly hilarious with each other. The new DC is okay, too; I was worried they might try to do something romancey with her and Hathaway, but so far, so good.

- EVERYBODY WATCH IN THE FLESH. [livejournal.com profile] slitherhither is totally on board with it now, if only because I forced her to borrow my S1 DVDs. I'll force you all to do it too. One by one, you shall all succumb.

Nothing to do with TV, but I'll leave you with this:

About the cute colleague mentioned in an earlier post…

[Slither and Sarea high-five for excellent question-asking]

As usual, I'm behind the curve and I missed In the Flesh when it originally aired its first series last year and its second earlier this summer. I'd heard a few rumblings here and there of it being good, but I didn't really pay attention as zombies are not particularly my thing. A few weeks ago, [livejournal.com profile] accordingtomel told me that it was on her list, so we decided we'd watch it at the same time. She hasn't managed to start watching, as her computer has been giving her a hellish time, and I've been terrible and binge-watched the entire thing, because it turns out that it doesn't matter that zombies aren't my thing. Set in the microcosm of a claustrophobic, small town in Lancashire, the show is an insightful, piercing reflection of human society in all its intolerances, self-aggrandizements, and snide asides. That this mirror includes a few risen undead somehow only manages to enhance its humanity all the more.

But to leave it there would be doing it a disservice, as In the Flesh covers a damn lot of territory and does it all with a deft hand -- navigating the balance between getting by and taking charge, getting prejudice thrown in your face and exposing your own, earning forgiveness from others and accepting yourself. There are a few moments that are a tad heavy-handed, but many more that are handled with impressive subtlety -- the protagonist's sexuality, for one, is, to paraphrase Orphan Black's Cosima Niehaus, not the most interesting thing about him; it simply is what it is. Small, mundane moments -- the dreaded and banal task of untangling bunting, a toaster that only works if you have the right knack to it -- bind the show even tighter to reality.

And in that vein, it isn't, either, a blood, guts, and braaains fest one might expect on hearing the word zombie; there certainly is some of it sprinkled in, but this isn't the usual fare about violence and bare-bones survival. It's about coming home and reconciling who you are and who you've become with the things you remember and the things that have changed, a lesson all the harder when you've been dead a few years and have, for reasons still unknown, risen from your grave, been rehabilitated with medications and daily affirmations, and reintroduced to the living.

The anchor of the show is Kieren Walker, sensitive, artistic, and unsure of himself, who in S1 has just been released from a treatment center; he doesn't want to cause a fuss or stir anything up, and even less wants to take sides. Pulling him in one direction is his loving but emotionally shuttered family (and let me just say, when the dam finally does break, it is a seriously powerful moment), and in the other, his new, undead friends who are vociferously proud of who they are, and all around them, the denizens of this tiny, bleak town where mob mentality can rear its head in a second flat. That being said, any single one of the characters could be us; there's no pure black-and-white in this 'verse. Even the moustache-twirlingest of them have understandable, if horribly misguided, reasons for the havoc they cause.

Of course, the best writing in the world could fall flat without the right cast, but thankfully, the cast is amazing through and through. Kieren's played by Luke Newberry, who very rightly was nominated for a BAFTA for this role (and is an adorable fluffy bunny in interviews and things), and he infuses Kieren with a beautifully awkward energy, mild at first glance, but thrumming with anxiety under his skin. Even the way he lopes along, just slightly off, is wonderful to watch.

Also of note, Emily Bevan, playing Amy Dyer, Kieren's best dead friend forever. I don't know where she came from, but Emily Bevan is a gem. Amy sparkles every minute she's on screen, with more joie de vivre in her pinky finger than any of the living do in their entire beings. It would be unbelievably easy for her flair and her quirks to shunt her into the substance-free manic pixie dream girl trap, but she's grounded with sympathy and sadness, and I love her. And then there's Emmett Scanlan (on whom I now have a massive talent-crush), who shows up in S2 as Simon, an enigmatic disciple from the undead opposition whose magnetism and whisky-velvet voice earn him plenty of followers himself. His performance in the episode that gives us Simon's backstory is exquisite.

There are admittedly a few logistical and physiological quibbles to be had, but all of the above more than make up for it. An infinity's worth of kudos to the creator Dominic Mitchell for building such an intricate yet familiar universe and populating it with characters who feel all too real. I cannot recommend this show enough.

tl;dr: OMG IN THE FLESH IS AMAZING YOU HAVE TO WATCH IT.

NaBloPomo, Day 10! What's your favorite new Fall 2013 TV show? (If fic exists, share your favorites!)

I do enjoy the Sleepy Hollow. Its premise sounds kinda dumb, I'll give you that, which is why I hadn't intended on watching it in the beginning. But then I kept hearing good things about it, and nothing but good things, so I gave it a shot.

One of the best things about it is the interaction between the two leads. They have fantastic chemistry, and not necessarily in a shippy way either. Not that there's anything wrong with shipping them (and I'm pretty sure the writers are steering them in that direction); there's plenty of fodder for that, but I'm happy with how their friendship and trust strengthens from week to week without throwing romance into the mix just yet.

Also good? That the female lead is fiercely independent and intelligent. She doesn't apologize for kicking ass and taking names, or for having moments of vulnerability. I quite love her.

adelagia: (mst3k | something vague)
So, last night's Agents of SHIELD episode was good. I keep going back and forth with this show. Some weeks are a bit of a slog -- and the previous episode really tripped one of my pet peeves: TPTB, if you want to write a Chinese character, make sure the actor you hire can actually speak the language properly; it's ridiculously easy to tell when they can't and ruins the "authenticity" you're aiming for.

I have gotten off track. So, yes. Last night's episode: good. I want to say it's because it finally focused on character relationships and development, but I'm pretty sure it's because they also focused on characters that I'm actually interested in. More screen time for the lab geeks (and excellent performances from the actors) was a welcome change from Ward and Skye, who do nothing for me. Ward is the character equivalent of room temperature tap water, and with Skye, I don't know. I think the actress is actually doing a pretty nice job; some of her line deliveries are kind of brilliant. I just have no affinity for the character at all.

But this is a convenient segue into today's NaBloPoMo question: What's your current fandom love(s) and/or ship(s)?

There was potential for it previously, and yesterday's episode sealed it for FitzSimmons. Nerdy best friends who bicker adorably all day and will die for each other? Yes, I accept. Of course, this being a Joss Whedon vehicle, I can only assume one of them is headed for a sudden, tragic death. (See: Everything Joss has written ever.)

The LJ header is telling me I have a message in my inbox but there is nothing there, and frankly, it's driving me a little bit mad. It doesn't take much, really.

Every time new people start working at my go-to Starbucks, I have to teach them how to charge for my drink. And it's not like I'm one of those double tall nonfat seven pump sugar-free extra-hot caramel macchiato no whip people; my drink is quite literally just tea and steamed milk. Different baristas will charge anywhere between $2.35 and $4.00 for it. I think the lesson here is to stop wasting money on Starbucks tea.

I was about ready to give up on Marvel's Agents of Shield after about three episodes, but this past week's episode was better, so I'll stick around yet. I'm warming up to the tech nerds, but the resident recalcitrant hot agent dude still does nothing for me and the snarky girl with Secret Past and Seemingly Nefarious Purposes (But Not Really) is fun but too paint-by-numbers prototypical. Also going for AOS is that it's one of the only shows I've been watching when it actually airs on TV because that's a good time for me to get on the treadmill, and basically I only have time/energy to exercise once a week, so if I cut it from my viewing schedule I'm liable to never exercise again, lol.

In music news, I'm really liking Olly Murs' Dance with Me Tonight. It's fun and upbeat; reminds me a bit of Bruno Mars' Marry You. When it comes on my iTunes, I literally have to stop everything to sing along.



See?

On [livejournal.com profile] gealach_ros's enthusiastic rec, I watched the pilot of Sleepy Hollow today. It's fairly solid; I'm interested in seeing more. The special effects aren't great, but whatever; if I had a bar for good SFX I'd have never made it past Merlin S1. Anyway, I really like Abbie. She's kick-ass. Ichabod Crane is fine so far (and also fine); the little, befuddled reactions he has to being in the 21st century are very amusing.

My shoulders hurt like hell, on account of having to carry my 500lb. laptop around everyday. It's pretty much neck-and-neck right now with stress to see which one will fell me first. A couple of days ago, one of our professors took one look at the class and expressed genuine concern about how worn out we all looked. It's the second week of school. Gah.

Let me expound instead on the 1D This is Us movie. [livejournal.com profile] accordingtomel and I went on the first day of public school, which meant that the theatre was almost completely empty. Two fellow ancient fangirls sat a few rows in front of us, and that was it. Good times! As for the film itself, it was forgettable. I mean, listen, I will gladly watch the 1D boys gambol about for hours on end -- they are truly hysterical, precious little peanuts -- but as a documentary, especially a documentary directed by someone of Morgan Spurlock's caliber, it was underwhelming. It was all very superficial and kind of staged, full of soundbites we've heard before. Meh.

The best part about the movie existing was basically that the theatre had a life-sized promotional stand that you could take a picture with. When the DG girls went to see City of Bones a couple weeks before, [livejournal.com profile] sarea_okelani went in first to grab seats for us while we waited for everyone to arrive. I was standing out by the ticketing area, and suddenly I heard her hollering at me that the 1D stand was in there, so naturally I abandoned the other girls to get all up in there. There was a space for you to stand, and Liam with his elbow out as if leaning chummily on you. I am very short; it pretty much looked like he was about to knock my head off. (Sadly, by the time Mel got into town, the stand was gone.) Here's a picture:

Finals Week has descended like a lead balloon of doooom! [Cue lightning, thunder, etc.] I dreamt a couple nights ago that I had a 50% grade going into the final, and on waking, had to spend a few minutes making sure that wasn't actually the case. Thankfully, I just have to get through tomorrow, and then I'm free as a bird on work release, as the new quarter starts a week and a half after that and is widely reported to be the hardest quarter of all. Hooray! (Also I think I have just seriously pissed off one of my supervisors for next quarter because of scheduling miscommunications, ugh.)

Blah blah movies: Star Trek and Now You See Me )

Gasp, could it be? Sunny? Warm? Is spring actually here? I damn well hope so!

... Even if I have stayed inside for a good 90% of the past week. It's because [livejournal.com profile] sarea_okelani lent me her Veronica Mars DVDs and I have been cruising through them over spring break. Just finished S3 yesterday and now I think I'm in VM withdrawal. Must... have... snark. *twitches*

When VM was on the air way back in the day I caught a few episodes here and there but it didn't leave much of an impression; I think I just didn't get it at the time, much like how I watched Spinal Tap back in high school but didn't appreciate it till some years later and is now one of my favourite films of all time. Now I can definitely see why VM is such a beloved series and am really happy they get to finally make their movie. (As a sidenote -- and you may throw garbage at me if you wish because plenty of people seem to want to when I admit this -- but the appeal of The Big Lebowski, which I also watched in high school and then again a few years ago, continues to elude me to this day, big time.)

It's a shame I wasn't in VM fandom back then to enjoy it with other people. It's so sad when there's no one to ship your ship with, though, of course (of course), my ship happens to be a non-canon pairing with excellent chemistry and no hope of ever happening. So if anyone happens to be a Veronica/Weevil shipper, come talk to me! Or write a ton of fic or something! I need more Weevil in my life. I mean, badass kid from the wrong side of the tracks with secret heart of gold? It's like he was created for me. :)))

Who wants to fangirl with me over his face? :)

He plays Endeavour Morse in Endeavour, which is basically the Inspector Morse origins story. For US friends, the pilot is available on the PBS Masterpiece website till the end of the month. (I say pilot, but the rest of the series hasn't actually been filmed yet. It was supposed to have been a one-off thing, but received such a strong response that ITV commissioned a full series. Hooray!)

I've been working on making my own Horrible Histories mood theme this past week, which of course has meant rewatching all three series. It's been a delight! I'd forgotten how much this sketch made me laugh the first time around:



Also, finally got a chance to listen to the Penny Dreadfuls' most recent radio play Revolution. I've recced them before for their Victorian Brothers Faversham series, and was really excited about this new one. It doesn't disappoint. As before, the writing is sharp and snappy and knee-slappingly hilarious, and while they are brilliant at putting cracky spins on history, they don't simply rely on their humour to sell the story either. Set during the Reign of Terror, Revolution imagines the undocumented conversation between Robespierre and Marie Therese -- Louis XVI and Marie Antoinette's daughter -- at one point in her imprisonment; the jokes come fast and furious, but there's still enough emotional breathing space for the anguish, anger and confusion surrounding the French Revolution to come through.

If it makes you more inclined to check them out, the Dreadfuls are Edinburgh Festival Fringe winners, and Humphrey Ker, one third of the group, just won Best Newcomer for his solo show at this year's festival. So, there you go. They're really good, you guys.

I've been neglectful about bashing you over the head with how awesome Horrible Histories is. My apologies, and due rectification: a song about Aztec religious rituals that had me simultaneously weirded out and mesmerized.
