I could watch more Torchwood, do homework, clean my room, or sleep. Or I could do this.

1. Comment on this post.
2. I will give you a letter.
3. Think of 5 fictional characters and post their names and your comments on these characters in your LJ.

[info]stunt_muppet  gave me the letter "M."  I'm going with the first five characters who pop into my head...likable or not.

If you know anything about me, you know that I occasionally often like to peruse my old posts, especially by using the tag feature to scroll through my thoughts on one particular show for a while. I type it in randomly on nights like tonight when I don't have to do homework, yet also can't focus on writing anything fandom-y, and so I just sit on the internet wasting time. Which is how I noticed this quip from May's season finale review:

And this has nothing to do with anything, but...dude, do you even know how many entries I have tagged 'Doctor Who'?  Despite being one of my newest fandoms, I think it's already in my top 4 or 5 show tags.  (clearly, best fandom ever)

State of the Networks: Fall Preview, 2008

(You'd better believe I plan to sit on LJ until dawn being totally unproductive, OH YES!)

Despite the fact that Bones jumped the gun way too early this year, and thus wrecked my plans to post this before my TV season officially began (my own fault for forgetting it was early, but still), we're going to pretend that didn't happen and have another round of "here are the shows I'm watching this fall, in order of my excitement level and why."  Because I want to establish traditions, darn it!

In the interest of getting everyone to read this, I'll even force myself not to specify spoilers that may have influenced my decision.  (mutter grumble)

When did I designate Saturday "Day of Housework and Sleeping"?

Having managed to actually go to bed before dawn (albeit not by much), when I woke up at 11:15 this morning, there was a brief moment of "Hey, I might not totally waste today OMG YAY!" ...and then I went back to sleep for another 4 hours.  -.-

Although, with my computer turned off, I was much less tempted to sit down and start wasting time, so I turned on the TV for motivation and finally buckled down on a Determined Cleaning Binge. The upside of getting up late was that I landed on ABC Family showing "Goblet of Fire," to which my first reaction was "DAVID TENNANT TIME!" I don't think I've seen the movie since I got into Doctor Who, and I keep meaning to watch his sections, so that was fun.

For example, you know that moment where he tries to oh-so-casually stroll out of the courtroom right before Karkaroff accuses him? I never noticed how much he resembles Captain Jack (the pirate, not Harkness). He's got the 'oh, don't mind me, totally not important, bye now' attitude down pat. Plus, non-spiky hair! That's always a bonus point.  In a related note...
Fandom opinion on "Blackpool": yea or nay?

Because every time I see David Tennant picspams, the screenshots from that show are really damn tempting. In ways where I am leery of more BBC shows after seeing how Torchwood can offend the sensibilities, and reeling after realizing that The Great Giant Bomb "Viva Laughlin" (first and fastest kill of the 2007 axe, as I recall) was based off THIS show...but. THE IMAGES, THEY ARE SWOON-WORTHY.  And it's a short series, so I don't have to worry about the time investment.  I just don't really know anything about it, and am still confused after trying to read a summary on Wikipedia, so I can't decide whether or not to watch.

Tell me how to feel, flist.
