Oh shit! I completely forgot about this. I blitzed through the first three seasons a few months back and forgot it was, y'know... still happening :P

Time for another good TV binge to play catch-up

Okay, bear with me because I seriously cried when I heard..this is BH's last season. And I AM SO BUMMED. I look forward to the new series every year, I watch each series multiple times, I fucking embroder pillows with quotes from it. It is going to leave a terrible gap of just sheer personal pleasure in my life. I don't have a lot of those (whch is not to say I am not self indulgent...) and I'm starting my period. It is a perfect shitstorm. No more Hal! No more Tom! Oh Tom, I'll miss you...fuck.

Trying - I'm in the US so I'm waiting for it to be uploaded. I can't wait.

:( Oh well, patience is a virtue.

I'm a fan of this show. I'll probably wait to watch series 5 on BBC America. I'm watching season 3 of the US version and I have to admit that I do like that some things were changed.

Anyone seen the latest episode? Episode 3 "Pie and Prejudice"?

I did watch 'Pie and Prejudice', and I have to say...

...I really don't think Lady Mary was that bad. Yes, she invaded other people's privacy, but the ghosts in Being Human do that all the time (Remember Annie and Mitchell's threesome with the random drunk girl?). I really don't think Mary was as irredeemably insane as the other characters made her out to be. I mean, the supposedly reformed vampires usually kill someone every other week but Mary is beyond help because she knocks people over?! What?! I thought Lady Mary was really funny and she was fundamentally right about Hal.

I agree with you, because

They made Lady Mary look worse than she was. They made her out to be hysterical, and a bit daft for sticking around for 200 years, because she thought that she was doing something good. By ignoring the doors, she sacrificed an awful lot, and then got put straight by the new ghost in town, Alex. It just rubbed me the wrong way.

I dont think

that Alex should have been as strong as Lady Mary. And to make out Lady Mary as crazy because she was reading minds - Annie did the same. I kept thinking "Wow, Alex is awfully young...." Lady Mary had to spend most of her time alone except for one visit a year from Hal!

I did like the development of Hal and Tom's relationship a lot, as well as how freaking needy ghosts are. It helped me understand Annie better. And I loved

Hal going off the rails and killing Larry for being an asshole. Leo was !right - Hal shouldn't be allowed in regular society. Did Larry think he could stay at Honolulu Heights through bullying because that is how he spent much of his life? I was grateful that we saw what an ass he was before transformation so that we knew he always was a jerk, and had been fired for things before his first transformation.

I have another question regarding the first episode and also a hope how I think things will go

oLady Catherine led a pack of werewolves, right? For the spell to work, she had to be a leader....so could McNair have been correct that there is a pack somewhere....a werewolf family for Tom? That is what I am hoping.

holy shit episode 5. This season is wrecking me, and I can't stand that the next episode is the last one.

Do you think Harry (i.e. bad Hal) is the one that will rise and the crap from series 4 will happen? And just don't piss off a Scottish ghost...

      Ohh jeeze, GrandBerry6 just came to me, snuggled his face in my neck and barfed, all over me. In my neck, in my hair, on my face, down inside my nightie all over the front of my nightie. Ohh FUCK! Bath, washed hair, cleaned sofa. Good times, good times.

      I danced through my living room feeling awesome. From time to time I do this. Maybe wine is involved. Good music is definitely involved. It is awesome. I recommend it to you. With or without wine.

      After a few months of trying to decide what kind of new computer to get and my brother telling me a Mac would be the best decision I could ever make and my sister telling me that would be the worst and I ought to stick to Windows.... I now have a used Mac. I am trying to get used to it. Not easy, but the Magnifying program is a lot better than the Windows one (that was the ultimate reason for my decision) and FJ works a lot better than on my 10-year old Laptop, too!!

      Y'all, holter monitors suck. And naturally the palpitations that caused this test to be ordered are remarkably absent today. 
      I'm off to go work out in the hopes that triggers it. T minus 10 hours till I get this thing off.

      I frigging hate the toilets at this worksite. Specifically the door locks. Stupid little knoblet that isn't clear if it is locked or not. Door opens right off the main hallway and the toilet is just far enough from the door that I can't just hold the door shut in case I've got the lock wrong. I mean really people, how hard is it to design this? I just want to pee in private with no anxiety. Apparently that is too much to ask for.

      First thing I'm doing when I get to the hereafter is finding the ancestors who moved to the US in the first place and asking them what the fuck they were thinking moving here in the first place.  Along with giving them an epic the reason you suck speech hopefully in the presence of God and the Lord Jesus Christ Himself to all of them for condemning their descendants to living in a shithole.

      Do any of you play Dyson Sphere Program?   For those who don't know what it is I'd suggest Googling it, because there's no way I could do it justice. 
      There's always just one more thing to do before I turn off.  Blink!  And it's 2 hours later.
