I was going to make a post about being undecided about this season, but then episode five happened. So I'm pretty pleased about that. )

Cautiously pleased with this week's Community!

spoilers )

Definitely feeling better about everything than I was!

I don't know how I feel about the latest episodes of Community. For me, Community works best when it's about a real community college, even a surreal one. One that has ridiculous classes because there's a mandate to try and boost enrollment and someone said "sailing!" and someone else said "Who's the Boss!" but those are still real classes where someone is trying to teach you something about media and tv via outdated sitcoms. I like a lot of the character changes they've done - Troy and Abed moving in together and adding Annie, Jeff having to adjust to not being a wealthy lawyer, Shirley actually moving toward her dream, for just a few - but I feel like the show is at its worst when it doesn't want to be about a community college (which is of course a different thing than being a community college that is additionally an extremely serious Pillowfort Battlefield, or Law and Order spoof.) Also, there's a difference between being aware that your college lacks prestige and funding while containing messes and bad paperwork, and a school actually being a nonsense.

What do you guys think?

I'm enjoying the new season of Community! Spoilers )

I finally finished reading Ankaret Wells' The Maker's Mask. I have no idea why it took me so long to read because every time I picked it up it was fabulous. Strongly reminded me of Kirstein's Steerswoman books, in the best possible way. Spoilers for both follow )

Something more closely resembling a review, though decidedly scattered: Spoilers for the Maker's Mask only ) Highly recommended, and I'm looking forward to reading the sequel.

I have no words for that Avs-Oilers game last night. It was ridiculous in all the best ways, though I am divided between delight over the Oilers' comeback and how well (nearly) everyone was doing (Nuge scoring! Maggie having a second big goal! Hemmer and Ebs with two each!), and the strong feeling that Dutchy is going to stab someone if the Avs don't start improving soon (and I really don't know if they can, after their completely unbelievable slew of injuries).

Hmm, cautious optimism? so many spoilers )

Also I saw the most recent Community. All I really have to say is spoilers )

O designers of Skyrim! Why is it always fucking night? Every damn time I fast travel somewhere, whoops, night again! It's not even as if time of day matters in game EXCEPT that night means the shops are shut. Everything else can happen at any time of day. I guess it's ~realism~ except there doesn't seem to be a point to it. Bah. In other news, I am addicted to this game; it's horrifying.

Finally got around to reading Margaret Halsey's With Malice Toward Some, which is just as delightful as everyone says it is. Except, I suppose, those people she is energetically sending up, but one can't have everything. (She, an American, spent a year in England in the 1930s when her husband was teaching at Exeter and is beautifully mocking of the English gentry, as well as academics in general.)

Also Community just gives me all the feelings and it had damn well better come back. Last couple of episodes were so adorable, in that special Community these-are-such-terrible-people sort of way. <333
