xparrot: (too funny)
Watched the latest episode of Merlin last night. Some nice Merlin/Arthur bits, but the real slash was elsewhere:

Me, about halfway through: Umm, is it just me or is Lancelot kind of in love with Merlin?
The brother: Yeah, except for the 'kind of'.

Really now, those long, longing looks - sure it was Gwen you were thinking about. Suuuuure.

In One Piece news, the anime has reached 2YL, and in a stroke of absolute genius the fake Mugiwara crew is being played by the actual nakama seiyuu, only all mixed up - so Hirata is "Luffy" and Ohtani is "Nami" and Nakai is "Sanji", etc - and it's even funnier then you're imagining, OMG BRILLIANT.
xparrot: Chopper reading (books)
Okay, so I've been watching Supernatural since its first season. For the first couple of seasons I was there for the pretty boys and brotherly h/c, but for years now I've been into it for the trainwreck factor, as the show doesn't so much go off the rails as blow them up, with big sticks of dynamite, twirling its metaphorical mustache as it pushes the plunger to send everything spiraling down into the abyss. It's bad, is what I'm saying, on nearly any axis of bad; and I laugh when I watch it, in between fits of screaming OH JOHN RINGO NO.

As of this last episode, though, I'm starting to suspect that the showrunners themselves are not only out to make bad TV but are actually intentionally trying to kill the show off, in a brutal and sickening way. Or maybe that was just the episode? Because, all jokes aside, what the everloving fuck, show.

spoilers for 7x03, and warning for standard SPN triggers, i.e. horrifically pointless violence to women )

I'm seriously wondering if the game plan is that by the end of this season the Winchesters are the monsters everyone is hunting down. (Crowley gets together a heroic gang of past monsters resurrected from Purgatory, and they save the world from Dean?) Because by now? I would genuinely enjoy that!
