Also, Maddie continues to be awesome, and I have all the ♥ for her. Although what was up with... )

That was awesome. Can it be next week now please?

...Lee Goldberg's brother, Tod, writes licensed Burn Notice tie-in novels.

Remember, Lee Goldberg is the guy who characterises fanfic writing as "Why toil on characters you don't own in a world that's not your own? It's not even literary masturbation. It's more like the literary equivalent of having sex with an inflatable woman who looks like Halle Berry."

(Apart from a couple of stylistic issues, the Burn Notice novels are actually not bad. Nearly as good as the Burn Notice fanfic I've read, in fact.)

I am sick like a sick sick thing. It's either a horrible cold or a mild flu and either way I'm absolutely wrecked. *deathrattle*

So, how about some TV to ease the pain...

Thoughts on Burn Notice 5.03 )

Interesting stuff. I like the direction that the show is going in, I think, but it's still taking some adjustment. Still, from the teaser it looks like stuff changes next week, so... we shall see.

I should totally be doing dishes, so I'm watching Burn Notice. You know how it goes.

Thoughts on 5.02. )

I never thought I'd be hoping for Michael Westen's life to suck again.

Oh, Michael Westen, ILU. (In other words, I just watched Burn Notice 5.01.)

thoughts! )

[personal profile] leupagus started a round of Recast Your Favourite Show, and it got me thinking. Now I want to recast ALL THE SHOWS.

Burn Notice recast! )

That was fun! Now let's recast NCIS Los Angeles! )

Because there's not enough uncomplicated yay! in my life, here's some things that are making me happy right now:

* Archer, which is hilarious and oddly addictive, and could teach lessons on how to make edgy comedy that's not wall-to-wall offensive.

* Castle, my viewing of which fell by the wayside a year or more ago, and after my TV-watching buddy acknowledged last week that we weren't going to have time to watch it, I mainlined over a season of it, and I love so much about it. I don't remember any of the plots, but they're not the joy of a show like this.

* Burn Notice: The Fall of Sam Axe, the prequel telemovie which aired a few days ago. OMG SAM. "El Barbia!" "You really want to kiss me right now, don't you!" Beatriz! I love Sam Axe a ridiculous amount, I can tell you, and the whole thing was great. (And Sam's execution of the Michael Westen Voice Over - awesome.)

* The Cloud Roads by Martha Wells, recced by [personal profile] mollyamory. It's smart, clever fantasy with excellent characterisation and worldbuilding, and an intriguing plot. Amazon refused to sell me a Kindle version of it (SCREW YOU, ARTIFICIAL DIGITAL SCARCITY) so a friend hooked me up with an ebook version while I order a hardcopy. (I am not a patient person.)

* DS9, [livejournal.com profile] ds9_rewatch and the friending meme. I am really hooked on Trek at the moment, and very glad to have people to talk about it with... to... at... whatever. :)
eleanorjane: Michael Weston, lookin' suave... (our man weston)
The good thing about being months behind on television: having a dozen episodes of a favourite show to plow through. I'm catching up on Burn Notice right now, and I'm consistently pleased with how awesome it is. I kind of wish I'd requested BN fic for Yuletide now.

I will try and refrain from flailing all over the place about episodes that are months old, but omg, I had forgotten how much fun this show is. How had I forgotten?

(Also, I have the most ridiculously inappropriate crush on Sam Axe. *fans self*)
eleanorjane: Michael and his mouseketeers. (there are three i's in team)
...new Burn Notice! YAY!

That is all.

Today's [community profile] fannish5:

Name 5 characters you think would have a good time hanging out with you and your friends - in your world, not theirs.

1. Tim McGee (NCIS), because he's basically just like my friends, except for the day job. (If any of my friends are federal agents, they haven't told me...)
2. Marten Reed (Questionable Content), because we're just like his friends, only less crazy and therefore somewhat more relaxing. :)
3. Sam Axe (Burn Notice), because he's incredibly laid-back, and easy-to-please, and this part of the world entirely understands the 'gentleman of leisure' lifestyle he aims for.
4. Hermione Granger (Harry Potter), because, well, birds of a feather flock together.
5. Abby Sciuto (NCIS), because she could have a good time hanging out with anybody.


And now for a weekly roundup, since I'm trying to shake myself out of this uncommunicative rut I'm in.

This week in Eleanorland: )
