1. Had a fab day in London on Saturday, meeting up first with a few random relatives for lunch and then with a group of very lovely non-LJ Pros people who are among my very oldest fandom friends. :)

2. Well, Baker Boys ended on a total no, you can't stop there! moment - thank goodness there's going to be another series!

3. The new season of Being Human (the real one, not the US remake) is completely awesome so far.

4. The new season of Primeval is over already! I'm so glad I decided to start watching again. I drifted out of the show after the first couple of seasons, but the writing in this new season is so much stronger than it was back then - I'm eager to find out what happens in the 5th and possibly final season, when it airs.

5. I can't quite believe that this weekend's Lark Rise to Candleford is going to be the last ever. :( It's a bubblegum show compared to other costume dramas and irritates me at times with how modern and plot-driven the writing can be, but I love it nonetheless and am going to miss it enormously.

6. Hustle ends its seasonal run next week, as well. It's another show that I've tended to drift in and out of over the years, but have been watching more consistently lately - the addition of Emma and Sean in place of Danny and Stacey a season or two ago has really reinvigorated the show and reawakened my interest in the team.

7. And Supernatural is finally back off winter hiatus! I'm really enjoying season six, on the whole, even though I'm not writing about the show any more. After being so bogged down by the apocalypse over the last couple of seasons, the show has moved in a new direction now, which has proved wonderfully intriguing to watch, and the first half of the season was impressively strong. Hopefully this standard can be maintained!

8. As if I didn't have enough live TV to be going on with at the moment, I've started watching a couple of older shows on rental from lovefilm - The Fixer and New Street Law each had a couple of seasons a few years back. I've seen a couple of episodes of each now, and really enjoyed them both, so look forward to working my way through the rest of each of their runs.

9. I've been strangely addicted to Coronation Street lately. I'm not sure where that came from - I mean, I've always drifted in and out of it, over the years, as it has always been my home-grown soap of choice. But lately it seems to have turned into must-see TV for me! We'll see how long that lasts...

Wow, it's been forever since I did one of these! I haven't written anything show/fandom related in months, but since I'm now in the throes of my marathon Supernatural re-watch, I decided it was time to give those writing muscles a bit of exercise, see if I could still remember how to do it. But to ease myself back in gently, I opted for a list of love - which was cheating, really, because this has been sitting half-finished on my harddrive for months already, so most of the work was already done!

So, without any further ado, one List of Love for Supernatural 1.15: The Benders )

In Other News, I really enjoyed the second half of Kay Mellor's A Passionate Woman this week. Sue Johnston and Alun Armstrong were excellent.

Miracle of miracles, for the first time in what feels like a long time, I actually feel inspired to write about tv - maybe my meta isn't fatally broken after all. Kinda rough around the edges still, but I'm feeling my way back into it. Let us see if it lasts!

Crap, this got really long. So long, in fact, that for the first time ever my initial rambling thoughts about an episode are too long to fit in a single LJ post! Um…sorry about that. It happened because, well…wow. I actually really liked this episode! It feels like forever since I've been able to say that. I'd almost forgotten how to squee! For the first time in a long time I felt excited to really delve into an episode in detail, but my relationship with recaps being what it is at the moment, I'm unlikely to get to this one any time soon, so wanted to at least do it justice in this first review, instead. And thus wordiness ensued. So, this is split into two parts, with my apologies.
