God help me, I watch a lot of tv.

ok, I may ship Duncan/Britta a little. IDEK. Community )

There's my bleak, undignified, human-condition examining show again! Who's a good weird little sitcom? The Big Bang Theory )

I seem to be in a minority that saw the Boyle/Diaz stuff here as being shippy again?
Brooklyn 99 )

I haven't liked this season much, but Abbie is bringing out the worst in Jess and the worst in Schmidt and i'm kind of into that. New Girl )

Not a lot to say, except how much do I love that Sally really is this raging zealot and a cynical ambitious politician all at the same time? So much. Scandal )

Ack, damned show, making me somehow feel for Peralta! Not fair!

Brooklyn 99 - how awesome is it that Peralta and Diaz have this backstory of cameraderie and trust? I completely buy them as friends, given the way they both tend to be a bit antiauthoritarian and immature, much more so than I buy Peralta and Santiago's rivalry or Boyle's crush on Peralta. Those always felt more like plot fiats more than being organic to the characters. I also like the introduction of what seems to be a long-term nemesis for them. That took some nicely convoluted twists and turns, considering it was all crammed into so little time. (Learn, hour-long procedurals where nothing happens. Learn.) All right, the captain wandering around holding the "small dogs" was adorable, but the physical stuff with Boyle fell kind of flat. Dunno, people pouring liquids on themselves has never done anything for me as humor, and I honestly have a fairly broad and extremely undiscerning sense of humor. Maybe it's because I live in an arid climate.

New Girl - This show may be on it's last legs with me. That felt tedious and sermonizing. I'm - just gonna say it - not a fan of Coach either. I'd gotten used to the dynamics of the original four (plus Cece) of them, adding him doesn't seem to really shake up anything, not do I find the character particularly funny in any way. Maybe Winston's plot twist here will see him having something to do, but otherwise that felt like a waste of time. Even the contrivance of the episode being sort-of in real time - usually the kind of thing I'm a sucker for - fell flat. They didn't do anything with that time, there was no tension, nothing interesting happening. Winston's Latvian flashbacks are always mildly amusing, but that's about it.
