laurus_nobilis: (General - Cards are love)
Wow, I've been terrible at updating. I keep getting distracted! So, since trying to write a long post clearly isn't working, I'll give you short, non-spoilery comments about the stuff I've been reading and watching lately.


→ I finished Robin Hobb's Farseer trilogy. If you like fantasy at all, I can't recommend these books enough. The characters are amazing, the plot is amazing, the worldbuilding is amazing. There is magic, yes, but it's not one of those fantasy worlds focused on heroes and adventurers alone; it feels like a real world with real people in it. It's got royalty who actually cares about doing the right thing, and does so realistically instead of in a usual Magical Fantasy Royalty way. It's main country is sort of based on Moorish Europe, which means most of the main characters (royalty included!) aren't white. It's got amazing, amazing women all around. And there are plenty more wonderful things about these books but I can't really say what without spoiling them, heh.

→ On a much lighter note, I've also read Mark of Athena and enjoyed at just as much as the other PJO/HoO books. Maybe a bit more than the last, anyway, because this one had Leo and Annabeth and I loooove my nerds. And now to wait for the next one, oh joy.

→ It's been a while since I watched the Doctor Who finale, so I won't attempt to be coherent about it... and I think I didn't post about this season at all, heh. Long story short: I really liked both the season and the finale itself, haters gonna hate. I'm happy that we're changing companions because I love the Ponds, and now I can stop worrying about whether I'd like their send-off or not. Personally I thought it was very satisfying.

→ I'm still watching Fringe, of course! This season is quite different from the previous ones, but I'm enjoying it very much anyway. The cast is simply wonderful, and I can't wait to see where this is going. Except I can, because then it'll be over. =( But I prefer it when shows know when they'll end so they can have proper arcs and closure, to be honest.

→ Saving my Transformers Prime thoughts for after the finale! Maybe I'll even manage an actual post, who knows.

→ I started watching Rescue Bots because of LeVar Burton. Now I'm four episodes in and genuinely loving it. Yes, it's very much for little kids, but seriously people it's adorable.

And I've been trying to come up with a proper post about it, but I don't think I can ever make it justice. The short, spoiler-free version is that I loved it all, even if it's true that in the last couple of episodes you can tell how much they had to hurry. It's still an amazing show. *_*

I love the characters. I love the themes. I love the plot. I'm still an incoherent mess two days after I've finished.

Buuut at least I wanted to post about that, heh.

I know, I've been waiting until the season finales so far, but this shoooow.

not-so-vague spoilers )
laurus_nobilis: (General - Tenemos probetas)
Spoilers for the entire second season, plus the first episode of season three.

And, again, not very coherent )
laurus_nobilis: (NBC - Experiments)
Because my sister tempted me with redemption arcs and Leonard Nimoy. I'm up to the first episode of season 2, so please no spoilers past that!

And there'll be spoilers up to that episode in this post, of course )
