Yes I am alive, if anyone is still reading this anymore and wondering wtf happened to me. I just sort of got caught up with lots of shit. But anyway I'm back! and Regular updates of my journal should being again posthaste. I have so much crap I need to cover that I dont know where to start, so since this is a new year, I will only talk about what's going on right now and in the near future and pretend that I already said all I needed to say about the last few months.

Anyway firstly I have dropped quite a few shows and picked up quite a few other shows in the transition between the fall tv season to the new spring/winter one we are in right now.
My current watch list for anyone who is curious includes the following:
Leverage (SO SO SO EXCITED ABOUT NEW EPISODES THIS MONTH EEEEE!)
White Collar (this was quite enjoyable and breezy fun, something I was sure about when I first started watching. It can tip into the generic at times but normally it saves itself before it starts becoming really predictable and stale, it would help I think if Jeff Eastin wrote all the episodes since so far his are the only eps that have really been great while everything else has either been ok-acceptable and half decent)
Modern Family (I put off watching it for weeks, thinking ti was just another family sitcom and while it is in some ways in many ways it really is a new modern take on the family. more importantly though it's FUNNY)
Community (love this show SO MUCH and I await the rest of the season's episodes with great anticipation!)
Skins (I dont know why I am still watching this considering the amount of journal space I spent bitching about season 3 but darn it I just love emily, naomi, jj and thomas too much to stop!)
Ashes to Ashes (this beautiful mindfucking eighties drama of my heart returns this season. Hurray!)
Psych (All I can say about this drama is "YAY" and that's all I ever need to say)

True Blood I am also still watching, it's not starting again until the summer months though but casting news shows that season 3 of true blood will have even MORE supernatural hotties and insane plotlines. Oh why cant it be summer now? D:

So apparently the BBC is doing a drama about Lennon and Yoko Onno (but mostly their nude behinds) and I for one am ALL for it. The best part is the fantastic Christopher Eccleston is playing Lennon, AWESOME SAUCE. What's funny is I had no idea it was Eccleston until I read the BBC press pack, I was looking at the trailer and wondering "who is this hot dude playing Lennon?" and LO AND BEHOLD it is my original british crush Eccleston! It's also nice to see that my old suspicion that Eccleston would be less foxy with long hair was totally wrong. Way to rock the shit out of the hippie hair dude *thumbs up* He also looks at least 10 years younger than he actually is. Also I chuckled at the pic of eccleston!lennon's bare bum because i've seen the original pics and Lennon had a super pasty pancake bum. Whereas Eccleston's bum is clearly the toned and firm bum of a proffessional actor who knew he'd be flashing his arse very soon. I am not complaining though. ever. lol
Basically checking the press packs for upcoming dramas it seems like there will be alot of awesome on the BBC this season. So far dramas that have piqued my interest include:
Mrs. Mandela (a movie about winnie mandela? hell yes I am watching this)
Luther (I am not a fan of police dramas or thrillers, I am however a fan of Idris Elba and I can easily overlook my dislike for crime dramas with good writing. So chances are high that I will check this one out)
Lennon Naked (really with a title like that how can I say no? Also CHRISTOPHER ECCLESTON. and...CHRISTOPHER ECCLESTON NAKED)
Material Girl (the lead actress looks super cute and I am always amazed when a woman or man of color is allowed to headline a drama, it's just such a rare thing. not so crazy about the fashion setting but we'll see. maybe this will vill the void left by ugly betty when it stopped being coherant and i had to drop it)
Money (You know I love the eighties right? Well I also love Nick Frost and have an odd fondness for Vincent Karthieser even though he still looks 16. but he is a good actor and this sounds like the sort of drama I'd enjoy)
Secret Diaries of Miss Anne Lister (I really love that the BBC does dramas like this, a focus on an intelligent fascinating woman, who is a lesbian and plus all the lovely trappings of a period piece. I will definitely give this one a shot!)

I am also eyeing A Passionate Woman because Billie Piper is indeed one very foxy lady and I do love me some forbidden romances, hopefully this one will be more sexy and exciting than Secret Diary of a Call girl was. (you'd think a show about a sex worker would be more racy and fun wouldnt you? but you'd be wrong!)

AND OF COURSE. New and Improved Doctor Who! Now 100% less RTD shenanigans! and 50% less emo angst and 60% more gorgeous redhead! woo! Bring on the Moffat! (I want to add now that I like Matt Smith's face shape and body build like 40283028x more than I ever did Tennant's. My flist can now proceed in stoning me if they wish)

ALSO. Cant forget that the winter olympics are coming! WEEEE. I love the olympics, plus I know more of the winter athletes by name. *pulls out GO USA banner*

and that is all ladies and germs! (and lady germs) I will hopefully have more substantial things to update about next time. I have sort of kept up with lj, but basically drop me a line and say hi if we havent talked in a while. :D I'd love to hear what everyone else is watching this season! (I might put up a poll in my next entry actually)
