Chuck and Castle
Someone linked this on SF and it is v. cute: Mr. and Mrs. Carmichael - the "fake" photos from the ep. of Chuck where Chuck and Sarah pretend to be married

And speaking of Chuck, can I just say how awesome Scott Bakula is as Chuck's dad? I loved it when he said, "Aces, Charles" in the last ep. Aw. (P.S. Zachary Levi continues to be awesome, as does Adam Baldwin. The tranq. scene was funny.)

In other TV news, have discovered Castle, which I decided to try because it stars Nathan Fillion (of Firefly), who is awesome. The first few eps felt a little bumpy, but I think the actors are hitting their stride, acting-wise. The writing is pretty good, although I think the murder mysteries could be more complicated. The characters are beginning to get fleshed out a little more, too. The best part of the show so far is, of course, Nathan Fillion. The man has about 12 tons of charisma and is a great actor, and fortunately, he's on screen most of the time, which means the show remains fairly interesting throughout. The actress playing Beckett is pretty good too, and last ep they finally hit a scene that I loved - the laser tag and visit from Beckett scene. I'd like to see some more depth to the Castle character in the future, but I am assuming they'll get to that.

And...that's all, folks. :)

I just finished writing my letter asking for Chuck's renewal. I'm sending them out tomorrow to two NBC execs. I've asked cleolinda to link to the various Save Chuck campaigns out there, and if she obliges, that would be awesome! There's the usual letter-writing campaign and voting at E!Online's Save One Show, but there's also the Finale and Footlong, involving Subway, a big sponsor of the show. I will pimp this all over my journal till the season finale, in hopes that other Chuck fans will help out! :)

Wait, you mean Chuck is in danger of not being renewed? OH NO!!!!!

It's got a bad timeslot that puts it up against Gossip Girl, Big Bang Theory, and How I Met Your Mother, which are skewed toward the same demographics.

OMG I'M ADDICTED TO THIS SHOW

IT IS SO AWESOME

I'm worried they're going to kill the mom off :( I'm not sure why, except for the symmetry between Castle/Beckett. It's a weird gut feeling.


Castle and his daughter are adorable. I wish MY dad were that cool ...

Oh, I hope they don't kill her off. She's fun!

thanks! icon's from fistfuloficons. It's so sad and cute and funny and wrong at the same time.

It really is. I almost want it, even though Freddy Krueger squicks me out. Heh.

SCOTT BAKULA ZOMG!

I'm so totally geeking out over Chuck. You know I'm a huge QL fan of long-standing (the convention was AWESOME, BTW), and when I heard Scott was going to be on Chuck, I figured I should catch up with the show.

I had Chuck on my to watch list last year, and had the episodes sitting on my hard-drive, but family stuff meant my tv viewing went out of the window last year and I never got around to it.

Anyway, we ended up watching something like 20 episodes almost back to back over the space of a weekend. Totally addicted, and I'm in love with Zachary Levi.

OH THE CONVENTION. DID YOU POST ABOUT IT? I really would love to hear stories, since I couldn't go (economic woes, WOE).

Chuck is a great show, and YES, I am also so in love with Mr. Zac - he's adorable. :)

Scott has been awesome on the show so far. I can't wait to see more (there'd better BE more).

Oh, the convention was AWESOMESAUCE! We had fifty guests on site, and Dean Stockwell phoned in from Taos, and it was utterly mental and insane and fabulous. I was so busy working it that I don't have a huge amount of stories, though I can say that Brad Silverman (Jimmy in Jimmy) was incredible, and had everybody in tears when he talking about how he deals with Downs Syndrome.

The best part of the con? When Scott and Don had signed for the last attendee, the doors shut, and we posed for a group photo - and I got to tuck myself into Scott's armpit.

OMG AWESOME! I am so jealous of you in a still-glad-YOU-got-to-have-fun way. :) I'm really glad the convention went well. Maybe if there's another one sometime I can actually GO.

I wish you could have been there! We're releasing a DVD set in a couple of months - it's worth getting just for the Scott Bakula vs Jay Schwartz (Scott's publicist) Quantum Leap trivia contest!

Oh, cool! BTW, was this a one-time thing, or might there be another con again later?
emmacmf From: emmacmf Date: April 16th, 2009 07:44 pm (UTC) (current file)
There is talk of a 25th Anniversary convention in 2014, but I don't know that my nerves could take being on the committee again!
foresthouse From: foresthouse Date: April 30th, 2009 01:46 am (UTC) (current file)
Wow, yeah, I know what you mean. The Discworld Con is great, but it's a lot of time and effort, of course. :)

P.S. And the picture is sooo cute.

How is that man 54?!

MAGIC. Hee.

I actually squeed a little when Scott Bakula said "Oh Boy". Yay, shout outs!
But seriously, he was awesome as Chuck's dad, I'm so buying that they're related, hee. I want him in a lot more episodes.

Those pictures are adorable. I just wish they'd finally make up their mind about being together or not, at this point the sip-tease is getting more irritating than anything else. *sigh*
foresthouse From: foresthouse Date: April 16th, 2009 04:45 am (UTC) (current file)
I know, that part got me too. They totally do work as being related, too.

Yeah, I am getting frustrated with it too, but this last ep made me v. happy!
