Mad Men | Peggy "Pizza House" Olson
I first saw the Coupling (UK) pilot episode years ago with notorious_mag. I thought it was hilarious, and on the behest of etilia76 I decided to rent the whole series this summer. Now I want to invest some serious money so I can own them all!

Spoilers for the series...but my spoilers are the equivalent of reading the back of a book...kindaCollapse )

The summer months are a great time to pick up shows we've heard good things about or shows we once loved and need another dose of. What are you watching right now? Are you savoring them in hourly sittings or hunkering down for extended showings? Which character do you adore and want to squee about? Who is your new favorite ship? Aside from rewatching oldies but goodies or starting new-to-you series, what else is on your TV agenda?

Do tell!!!!!!

Mad Men | Peggy "Pizza House" Olson
Thank you to carpenyx for getting me hooked on Arrested Development. It's a fun show to watch that really reminds me my family could be worse--they could be as dysfunctional as the Bluths. I'm almost half way through season 2 and here are some of my thoughts. I'd love to read what others thought about this show!

Just in case people don't want to be spoiled, I'll write my ode to the AD characters behind the cut.
Meet the BluthsCollapse )
4th-Jun-2007 10:55 am - Judd Apatow Love
Mad Men | Peggy "Pizza House" Olson
Two of my favorite canceled-way-too-early series were Judd Apatow'sFreaks & Geeks and Undeclared. What I loved about both of these shows were the quirky characters played by even quirkier actors (read: not your typical Hollywood Hunks). Seth Rogen, Jason Segel, Jay Baruchel, and Martin Starr are featured in Apatow's latest movie Knocked Up, also staring Grey's Anatomy star Katherine Heigl. I won't go in to detail about the movie, but I just wanted to say that it's a great movie to see if you are a hardcore TV junkie like me. All my tv time paid off. In addition to Apatow's adorkable crew, lots of cast members from The Office, (Steve Carrell as himself, BJ Novak as a gynocologist, and Craig Robinson as the bouncer) Saturday Night Live, (Kristen Wiig as an annoying boss and Bill Hader as an editor/producer type), and Firefly (Alan Tudyk as an E! Exec) make appearances, too.

Even if the movie isn't your cup of tea, I recommend both of Apatow's series because they're total love.

Mad Men | Peggy "Pizza House" Olson
Just a quick reminder to all community members! If you have an idea or a topic that you want to discuss, please post it! Every community member can post and I look forward to seeing what's on your mind. Let your friends know about the comm too!

This is a multi-fandom community and everything is fair game except in-depth discussions of current season shows. Be courteous and remember that though some shows are old, for many people it may be their first time watching and discussing them. Label your posts with spoiler warnings and use cut tags.

Make your own memes, let us know what you're watching because you never know who may want to discuss it, post a poll, do a picspam, write a rec list, or whatever floats your boat. Also, feel free to cross post or link to your own journal if something is applicable.

Hope you're all having as much fun as I am!
25th-May-2007 09:54 am - Meme: The Cool Kids
Mad Men | Peggy "Pizza House" Olson
A good show introduces us to a group of characters that are rich and interesting. If they are written well they can seem like old friends that we have known for years. This meme is all about the characters you wish were your friends! You can choose different shows and groups for each answer or stick with the same ones! Whatever!

1. What group of friends/team/coworkers would you like to join?
2. Who would be your bff?
3. What would you get your bff for his or her birthday?
4. Who would be your rival?
5. If you were having a dinner party and you could invite as few or as many of your favorite characters from any show, who would make the guest list and why?
6. Of your friends, whose parents are the coolest and who would you adopt as your second family?
7. Out of all the adventures and ordeals your friends went through, which one do you wish you were a part of?

Copy and paste to make it easy!

Every series has one...or two, or three characters that are divisive and meant to rock the boat (or the ship as the case may be). Sometimes, when you least expect it, the villain becomes a fan favorite. Usually, if it's a smartly written character, he or she exposes something poignant about the protagonist and finds redemption. Who are the characters you love to hate and hate to love? Most importantly, why?

Mad Men | Peggy "Pizza House" Olson
Season and series finales are upon us! With reruns being in full swing we should all probably use this time to catch up on reading the classics and enriching our lives with hobbies...but who are we kidding? I'm going to rewatch some of my favorite shows and watch oldies but goodies for the first time.

What are your summer rewind plans?
