I finished watching Rescue Bots!

A while ago, when I first started it, I said I gave it a chance because of LeVar Burton but was genuinely liking it already. Of course, that was still in an "aww, this is cute" sort of way.

But then... look, I don't know when it happened, but at some point I got more emotionally involved with a cartoon aimed at 5-year-olds than with a lot of "grown-up" shows I've tried to watch lately. Yeah. I regret nothing.

I just love all these characters, okay? And it's a really well written show, too - I mean, yes, the target audience is obvious, but it's a good show for little kids. Besides, I didn't really expect it to have an overarching plot, or character development that stuck. That was a nice surprise.

... also, I can't get over the fact that this is taking place in the same 'verse as Prime. NEVER LEAVE THAT ISLAND, GUYS.

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.

Because I can. I forgot to write this post yesterday, but this time I actually took notes while I watched because THIS EPISODE YOU GUYS.

Technically, I have a Very Organized List of things I should be watching. But I couldn't resist. So, the pilot!

(For the record: these posts will be full of ramblings about the show as a whole, so if you haven't seen it and still care about spoilers, read under your own risk.)

Spoilers for the last two episodes!

TF: Prime's episode is a two-parter, so I'm going to leave the rambling until next week. But it gave me AAAALL THE FEEEEELINGS. |D

Anyway! This post is actually about season 2 of Generator Rex, which I watched a couple of days ago so I'm more or less coherent about it.

Spoilers for the whole season, of course )
