Okay, you've seen the newest photo of Dobrev and Somerhalder that's making the rounds, right? Because if not, it's posted on my lj.

Oh yeah. There's a bunch of pics from them in Paris that came out a few days ago. So sweet and sigh-worthy. I made a wallpaper based on a few of the pics and linked to the sites that feature the bunches of them (including that cafe cuddle one).

I agree with How you met your mother.

I like Castle and Ncis too, really like 30 rock, love White Collar and The Good Wife and as you said....compeltely insane and obsessed with...TVD (and Supernatural too).

This was fun to do. :)

Just watched the full two seasons TVD in a mad rush of obsession for the first time over an insomnia filled two days over this past week. Thought it would be a light piece of fluff. Am now a zombie but I COMPLETELY understand now when people say TVD is insanely obsessive. I have absolutely no regrets because now I am acquainted with the awesomeness of Damon and just want to squee nonstop about him.
Arabian: Damon04arabian on May 27th, 2011 12:20 pm (UTC)
A friend talked me into watching it, and yeah, I'm amazed at how amazing it is. LOVE IT SO MUCH!!!!!!!!!!!!
steff3steff3 on May 27th, 2011 09:48 am (UTC)
Also Fringe is pure brilliance-how could I forget?Hands down my fave show (though TVD is edging close right now). What is going on with Peter???
Arabian: Peter & Olivia01arabian on May 27th, 2011 12:19 pm (UTC)
Fringe is excellent, yeah, but my heart belongs to TVD like no other show EVER!

Who knows what's gonna happen with Peter. I just hope we don't have Peter-less episodes. :(

I like this system, actually...so, the top one is basically "Like parts of..." Cool! :D

I very much like the last one, as well...hee! :)

(Wait...where's Doctor Who? Oh, this is only things that have concluded...duh, Eolivet -- it's too early!! :p )
Arabian: Damon & Elena09arabian on May 27th, 2011 12:18 pm (UTC)
Actually I forgot DA too. So I added that and DW to the list.

I like this system, actually...so, the top one is basically "Like parts of..." Cool! :D

I was trying to figure out how to word it, and that worked best, hee!
eolivet on May 27th, 2011 12:58 pm (UTC)
Hee, I guessed where you'd put DA, though I was wrong on DW (thought it was more of a "like," although Matt Smith is THAT GOOD, I agree. ;)

Feel free to point anyone who might express an interest to my DA pimp post. [/shameless promotion]
Arabian: Billie Piper_01arabian on May 27th, 2011 03:06 pm (UTC)
I do really adore the concept of DW, and really it's mostly only the Moffat episodes that I don't really, really like.

I can't really think of anyone, but if I do, I'll send them your way. :)

I never do anything like that. What can I say? Parks & Rec makes me silly! :)

Arabian: Damon & Elena07arabian on May 27th, 2011 07:03 pm (UTC)
Yeah, I enjoyed the first couple of episodes, but I'm just not feeling how they're doing the politics of it all and Ursula needs to have never shown up. UGH! I haven't even watched the finale yet.

P&R is adorable, and of course, TVD is the BESTEST EVAR!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The Vampire Diaries

LOL loved the ending. Totally guilty of that too! It's the only TV show I'm following religiously. I think Season 2 ate my soul and now I'm addicted. :P
safetywords: d & esafetywords on May 27th, 2011 09:23 pm (UTC)
Completely agree with the end of the list. :)

You love Game of Thrones too? I'm so deeply addicted to it right now. Happy to see another on my f list loving it too.
Arabian: Damon & Elena(PR)01arabian on May 28th, 2011 12:36 am (UTC)
I read all the books a few times, and am so impressed with what a wonderful job they are doing in translating it to the screen. Most importantly, onscreen Tyrion is kicking as much ass as onpage Tyrion did. (And for book readers, Peter Dinklage was ALWAYS the only one who could play Tyrion, and boy, is he proving our faith every week!)
safetywordssafetywords on May 28th, 2011 04:43 am (UTC)
I've never read the books, actually. But as more episodes air, it really makes me want to dive right into the series. It's good to know that the writers, producers, etc are trying to do the series justice on TV. Since you've read the books, would you say the TV series is faithfully following the books for the most part?
Arabian: Booksarabian on May 28th, 2011 02:19 pm (UTC)
They're doing a WONDERFUL job of capturing the books. They've added a few scenes and changed a few things, but overall, they are getting the look, the feel, the everything of the series down SO WELL.
Cynical Bitch: fringe: olivia dunham in glassesunicorn23 on May 28th, 2011 12:22 am (UTC)
Yay, Fringe!

I should probably let you know that I started watching The Vampire Diaries and OMGITISSOGOOD. I'm about to start episode five of season two and I have so many thoughts. I should probably have posted an entry about season one because now those thoughts will be usurped by season two thoughts. I'll try to do that this long weekend.

Caroline is totally my favorite character though. I just love her.
Arabian: TVD-Cast01arabian on May 28th, 2011 12:34 am (UTC)
WHEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!! You must read/respond to my TVD posts (i have, erm LOTS!) I wrote a long post after ep 18 of season one about the whole season up to then, and then another long one for episode 19, and then I stopped doing it because I am stupid. Did a bunch of summer posts, and then when the 2nd season started, I wrote long, analytical (well, you know me, LOL!) post-episode posts for each episode, as well as tons of posts in between. I also did some graphics, and am systematically going through and doing icons for every episode, and I wrote some fic, including one I'm very proud of

Ahem, yeah, so if you're interested, I gots LOTS to say on it. :D I'd love to hear your thoughts on stuff too. :)

LOL, I knew you'd be all over my comment. :D I will read up on your previous entries as soon as I finish season two. Can't wait to sink my teeth (heh) into them. I need TVD icons, I reckon. Going to have to remedy that asap.

Yay, TVD!

Yay! Finally someone who knows about Downton Abbey! I LOVE THAT SERIES! I'm catching up with the Borgias and going to start watching Game of Thrones. You know me, I can't wait for True Blood lol!
Arabian: TVarabian on May 28th, 2011 02:20 pm (UTC)
You should check out eolivet's journal; she's IN LOVE with the show soooooooooooooooooo much. She's why I decided to watch it. (I figured I should since she watched -- and fell in love with -- The Vampire Diaries because of me.)
