Things are pretty quiet at the moment, and mostly I have been watching a lot of TV. Here are my thoughts!

Parks & Rec: I have already watched all of S2 and S3, but S3 has been on On Demand in bits and pieces, so my parents and I have been working through it. Independent of any input from me, Mom said that Ron totally reminded her of Dad, and I lol'd and lol'd because YES. Dad doesn't seem to understand that it's a compliment.

Further, I totally love Ron and April's relationship. I think their friendship may be my favorite relationship on the show. I would watch hours and hours of them trying to avoid the world, it would be great.

Lost Girl: I am mainlining S1 this weekend since S2 starts shortly and it seems like a good time. Only a few episodes in, but here are my extremely deep thoughts so far. )

Futurama: I caught up on the current season last weekend, during the hurricane! That was fun. TL;DR everything needs more LaBarbara. )

Doctor Who: Belated thoughts on last week's. ) Missed the new episode tonight on account of starting LKH late and it being about a quarter past nine when I finally finished it, but I'll catch the rerun later tonight or whenever they re-run it. Or tomorrow, if I can figure out how to record it when they re-run it. LOL DVRs, what even.

In other BBC America news, Mom has gotten hooked on Top Gear. It's fun enough, but mostly I would like to say that while the ads are largely ones that make sense (action movies, cars and car stuff), and the TV spots are, sensibly enough, other BBC shows, there's one they keep running that completely bewilders me, namely this ad for Ringer. I mean, I'm not complaining, because I'm going to watch that shit so hard I can't even tell you ([personal profile] inlovewithnight and I were SO JAZZED, even when we realized it was going to be srs bzns, GUYS WOULDN'T SMG AND IOAN GRUFFUDD DOING COMEDY BE AMAZING? THEY COULD BE JEWEL THIEVES WHO ARE COMPLETELY INCOMPETENT AND SUPER PRETTY, IT WOULD BE COMEDY GOLD), but it's so odd. IT'S NOT EVEN ON THIS CHANNEL. THEY DON'T EVEN GO TO THIS SCHOOL. Is it because it's Ioan? What? Why.

In conclusion, why isn't there fic where April and Andy are the Doctor's companions, it would be incredible.

Man, I was all set to spend this evening crying some more, and finally I took a deep breath and made some peppermint herbal tea and started reading the flist and then I hit this.
A spokesperson for 20th Century Fox Television confirms that [Comedy Central] has ordered 26 new episodes of Matt Groening and David X. Cohen's late, great animated series [Futurama] to air beginning in 2010. (SAUCE)
It is completely pathetic how much happier I am now. NEW FUTURAMA, YOU GUYS. I was so skeptical after the movies, because they were okay but the best movie was still pretty inferior to most of the episodes, and in general I was like "...I really don't think this is suited to more than relatively self-contained half-hour episodes" and had figured they had kind of bombed and that would be the last of it, BUT NO. NEW FUTURAMA, YOU GUYS. NEW FUTURAMA, YOU GUYS.
