Oh god, that Beetlejuice reference at the end :lol: well that was...... different.

Tsubasa is a great series, but I think how much you like will depend on how much you liked Cardcaptor Sakura. I loved CCS, so the idea of a series using Adult versions of CCS' main characters as part of a massive crossover with characters and locations from a dozen other shows was very appealing to me.

Plus I love CLAMP in general so, yeah.

ya see I didn't like cardcaptor Sakura when it came out and for the most part I don't like the magic girl thing
my preference is towards comedic, slice of life or supernatural

I was busy with movies the last couple of days :D
On Thursday we had an "Ancsa-day" (Ancsa's a friend of mine), so we watched some of her fav films, which were: Dangerous Minds, Three Steps Above Heaven and Just Go With It (I survived it all! :lol: )
Then yesterday we watched Ben-Hur with our chocolate-club, which turned out to be a comedy, who'd have expected (but then again, every movie we watch together goes with a lot lof laughter, so no surprise there :lol:). But what a long movie! Pff... Good one, though.
And for today, we had a Harry Potter marathon planned, but unfortunately my friend wasn't feeling very well, and we only got to the first 3 movies... to be continued on Thursday!

And now back to studying :P
Listen.

Watched Looper last night. It was good, not fantastic, different than what I expected. The weirdest thing was that they did a really successful job of making the actor who played the main character look not himself!

Not crazy about the new cast.

I took advantage of Netflix to watch the first 3 series of a show called 'The League' a semi improv comedy based around fantasy American football. I ended up really enjoying it there were a few moments where it was one of the funniest things I've ever seen but the comedy levels were always good

Not feeling the love yet.

It's OK, but hasn't gripped me like I was after only 2 episodes of Grimm.


I'm quite fond of The Glades :) Season 2 has just started on Alibi and it is one I look forward to. I am a fan of Grimm as well and also love Haven, which just finished it's 3rd season on Syfy (it didn't make me cry, honest! ;) ) I'm a bit of a fan of American crime dramas, even more so when there's critters involved :D

I saw The Hobbit in the cinema in December, which qualifies as recent for me :P It was so beautiful! I loved it, but my Dad thought there was so much singing it might suddenly turn into a musical ;)

Has anyone been watching Primeval: New World? It's actually pretty good and has whatsisface from Eureka in it :)
Hah! I laugh in the face of danger... Then I hide until it goes away.

Ahh yes, the lovely Niall "Zane Donovan" Matter, and apparently Colin "Jack Carter" Ferguson guests in one episode.

Sadly, I don't have Sky/Virgin so can't get Alibi, which is a bummer coz it has some stonking programmes on it.

I love Haven too. I've got the S1 and S2 DVDs, and am itching to see S3, but presumably the releases on Region 2 will be yonks away.

The Glades grew on me towards the end.

Grimm rocks! Silas Weir Mitchell as Monroe is fabulous!

Love Munroe from Grimm! There was a stretch in the first season where he was the only thing that kept me from losing interest.

FINALLY have my hands on S7 of Doctor Who! :D I'm about half way through now. I always loved Amy Pond and couldn't figure out why others disliked her so much - in S7 I'm starting to get it. She's bugging me. Still love Rory though.

I miss Rory, but not Amy. I think half my annoyance was caused by both Karen and Matt rattling through their dialogue at high speed.

Many a time I've had to rewind to try and hear what they've said.
