Random Shiny Things About Today  
New Fandom Alert: The Tribe is a science fiction teen drama about a post-apocalyptic world where all the adults have died due to a virus, leaving behind children that form gangs, trying to survive yet discovering that the virus may still affect them. And apparently, it's filmed in New Zealand and possibly heading into its sixth season. I was introduced to this series incidentally by this wonderful fanmade soundtrack, and after discovering it I started looking it up, finding which channel I can watch it on and voila, am a newly converted addict. However, due to the inconvinienced time schedules it has it on (it shows either 2:00pm or 4:00am), not to mention that I have absolutely no idea where it is in the series, I may just have to get the DVDs. Either way, I'm liking it so far.

♣ I loved tonight's episode of Medium. Kelsey Grammer guest-starring as the Angel of Death was just awesome, and the little twist in the end was great. I'm crossing my fingers that the Angel of Death figure appears again in later episodes, maybe for the third season this fall or something. It was refreshing seeing Kelsey on the show. Oh, and how much do I like Allison's girls? Ariel and Bridget, especially the little adorable Marie! Eee! So cute.

♣ This isn't necessarily shiny: I have noisy inconsiderate assholes for neighbors who cannot seem to understand that their loud banging in the morning is disrupting my beauty sleep! Not to mention that the hammer they're pounding sounds like gunshots going off. Loudly, on metal. Bad neighbors, no cookie.

Veronica Mars season finale is tomorrow! OMGYAY! *tries to contain excitement*

♣ Jon Stewart was hilarious this evening, and Samantha Bee appeared! I loved her coverage of the prostitutes and the injection of heroin in the penis. Er, you kinda had to be there to understand.

I like Bridget more than Ariel. Ariel tends to get on my nerves, but I suppose that's the point of the bratty teenage daughter. HEE. Kelsey Grammar was CREEPY as the Angel of Death. I seriously get the feeling he'll be back to join us again next season.

Yeah, Ariel does have a tendency to have a bratty side. However, she seems to be at that stage and she does have her redeeming moments. Bridget is so adorable, and I love her kid-logic for many things. Remember when she was wearing her bicycle helmet all the time, even the bed? Then she started wearing her rain boots? That was so adorable! And while Marie doesn't get much screentime, I like that she's shown in the scenes (and cute as a button!)

I liked this episode. It was really, really good. Creepifying, but good. Kelsey better return, because I liked how the Angel of Death arc was playing out. Also, I want our Badger to appear again. :)

Oh yes, Bridget is just totally adorable. I always remember the episode where she doesn't have any friends at school. Awww.

Oh, Seriously. Badger NEEDS to come back. He was creepy.

Urgh. Sorry about the noisy neighbors. Isn't that the worst? I hope things calm down and they stop being so loud.

I can't believe the second season of Veronica Mars will be over tonight! Crazy!

My neighbors are doing something to their backyard and, I swear, it's like they're creating an amusement park or something because there's been a handful of handimen coming and going, it's crazy. Inconsiderate kind of crazy, since they do it too early in the freaking morning. Though some years ago our old neighbors used to be so loud because they had parties almost every other night, so you hear the bass through the walls, or feel the vibration. They also had a tendency to leave for weeks at a time, leaving us to feed their poor dog from over the fence. Luckily, they left and never came back (we had their dog taken to the nearby vet, and all their personal belongings were thrown in a big trashbin by whomever had sold the house). I have crazy neighbors all over.

Doesn't it feel like the second season of VMars just started? It's insane. I'm just hoping this finale will end with a bang that'll satisfy fans and viewers like last season.

That show sounds soo interesting. I love New Zealand. I want to go there. I doubt I have a channel with that show on it, unfortunately. But it's an excellent premise.
