Weekend general update: Writing and TV things
-I have accomplished about half the cleaning I intended to, but didn't get much else done either. Blah.

-mini_wrimo sign ups have begun for November, and I've signed up for 100 words a day. I was hoping to go for more this year, but RL shows every sign of being horrendously soul-sucking for the next several months and onward, so 100 it is.

-Lots of season premieres next week. Murdoch Mysteries on Monday, Supernatural retrospective Monday and season 10 premiere Tuesday (will save those for later, I won't get through all of season 9 by then. I will be catching up as I can and not starting on season 10 or watching the retrospective until I'm caught up, arg. However, I won't be doing any full-on crazy reaction posts for season 9. There may be a separate post about this later, just in case anyone cares. :-P). Flash premiere also Tuesday. Doubtless more things but those are the ones that made my calender.

-Of the new shows I've started watching/have seen:
[Scorpion, ]--Scorpion is so far a fun popcorn mini-spy movie with geniuses that I like but I am not yet avid for.
[How to Get Away With Murder, ]--How to Get Away With Murder turned out to be not my thing, really, since [plot details for the premiere.]we now know who did what to who and who put them up to it, and the rest is going to be psychological manipulation, backstabbing and sex, and really not much real mystery. Also I misread the commercials and thought the instructor would be a very different sort of character, far less of an adversary. In the end, it all goes more soapy than mystery, and while that's great for what it is, it's just not for me. I also rather loathe Grey's Anatomy, so I probably should have realized this would have a similar mien given it's the same creator. Anyway, I'm going to need that block clear for when Elementary starts up again.
[Forever, ]--Forever. Forever. Holy crap I'm into this show. There may even be fic at this rate.
[and Gotham]--Gotham, which hadn't been on my watch list but I caught part of an episode while doing dishes may yet get my attention, as the whole Gordon and the PD dynamic is giving me Life on Mars flashbacks, and that's a good thing. I don't know if I'll be seeking it out in future, but it's probably going to gt a second look if it's on when I'm looking for a distraction.

-Of the new seasons of shows I was watching previously:
[Agents of Shield ]--Agents of Shield continues to be made of solid golden yay.
[and Criminal Minds]--Criminal Minds team changes are being handled a little more deftly than previously. Still a disturbing gore-fest, but that's Wednesdays for you.

I'm watching Forever, Gotham, and Shield. Loving them all. :)

Forever has totally caught me by surprise. I seriously might write fic.

I might have to bail on Scorpion; I like the characters, but the stupid in the scripts keeps getting to me.

I may stick with Gotham for a while. I like multiple characters, and the show is really visually striking.

But Agents of SHIELD is still at the top of my list, at least until Elementary returns—I think I have two favorites now!

For a show about geniuses, I find myself turning my brain off an awful lot while watching Scorpion. Agents of Shield needs more fandom, glad you've stuck with it!

Oooh, I am so intrigued by Forever. I adore Ioan Gruffudd (his Horatio Hornblower remains one of my favorite miniseries ever), so I should just get on that now. Thanks!

I'm finding the family dynamics and the mechanism of immortality particularly intriguing. Also Ioan's face is quite often a thing to be treasured.
