Before | After

Urg, every time I sit down to do an update or talk about something legit, something else comes up and consumes my life. I got a new foster dog in on Thursday, it was supposed to be a chill female Yorkshire terrier and it turned out to be a male Yorkie with significant health problems. Still, he was adorable, and I took him on Big Adventures yesterday but I could tell he was increasingly sick, and the bladder stones that were a problem and were going to have to be dealt with through surgery had become urgently bad. By the time we got home in the evening I finally got a call back from one of the rescue group ladies and they said to take him to the urgent care place, which I did. I hated leaving him there, poor little guy, he's been through some pretty severe trauma lately, but I couldn't keep belly bands on him enough -- he was just peeing ALL the time, and was seriously lethargic. I was concerned he wouldn't be able to handle surgery, but they did get the stones and he is resting, so I can pick him up tomorrow. And the best news is that the people down the street who have a female Yorkie met him Thursday evening and were really smitten, and without my prodding have already put in an application for him. So not only will he go to a really loving home, he'll be about six doors down from me! Win-win.

I wanted to write about TV, but I guess I'll have to do sound bites in 25 words or less:

Fringe: I...didn't sign up for this?

Revenge: I love Nolan's new 'do. Everything else is just taking up space.

Dexter: I think the people who write this have been in an experimental psychotropic drug program.

Homeland: Is KILLING me with its goodness and suspense and just basically HOLY SHITness.

Boredwalk Empire: Enough said. I don't know why I keep watching other than Jack Huston.

Happy Endings: Yay! They are back! Why doesn't everyone watch this show?

Castle: If a lead actress in a series had gained as much weight as Nathan has, she would be fired. (I still love Nathan.)

Alphas: I would just really rather they fight crime than conspiracies. Or just Gary fights crime.

Modern Family: Still cute after all these years.

Big Bang Theory: Please just spin off Penny, Amy, and Bernadette. The guys can appear occasionally.

Hunted: Could be interesting. Jury's still out.

Arrow: The only thing that will wake me up on this is when Nick Lea and Mitch Pileggi inevitably show up.

I still can't get interested in Person of Interest despite watching it a few times. I don't know what it is that everyone sees in it -- I maybe need to sit down with fangirls or something. But it just leaves me cold (possibly it's that I think Caveziel and whosits are kind of creepy dudes...), yet many people I like love it. And Teen Wolf is a nonstarter for me, which basically means I am missing about 80 percent of Tumblr posts. And Elementary might have been the only time I would ever happily watch anything Sherlock related, but it just seems like another CBS procedural to me. I don't know. I'm desperate for a new fandom, though.

Poor little guy. I'm glad the stone removal went well.

I would watch Gary fight crime any time.

I gave Person of Interest a fighting chance too! I think I am up to 5 episodes, and they are still creepy to me. (And the low talking, I roll my eyes on that on my other shows.)

I'm glad your Yorkie is going to a good home!

How about try Once Upon a Time? Awesome women, fun twists on fairytales and some cool visuals! The stories are not always the best but I really love some of the takes on the characters.

I totally agree about Homeland and Happy Endings! And I've been enjoying Modern Family a lot more this season.

I've been watching Once upon a Time, Grimm, Haven, Face Off, and Hot Set, but usually by virtue of OnDemand rather than paying attention to when new episodes air. (I was watching a lot of River Monsters, too, but I think I've seen all the available episodes now.)

I recorded Arrow, but I admit, I have failed to get through the intro, which is so hideously overdramatic. Doesn't sound like it's worth pushing on.

I've barely started watching Castle and OMG you're right about Nathan's weight! I saw a couple of early episodes and then I watched the newest one and I was like WHOA. And they were dressing him to obviously hide his weight, and I kind of flailed a little bit. I love Nathan, and I like Castle a lot, too, but I think you're right about what would happen if it was a woman. :C

Isn't Jack Huston on Boardwalk Empire so good? So good.

I can't believe how popular Arrow is now. And it's so bad!

I don't know if you'd care for a country western soap opera but Nashville has Eric Close, Powers Boothe, and Connie Britton at least. I liked the premiere very much but now, I don't know, it's become a mashup of Dallas and Dynasty. Nevermind, that's not exactly a shining recommendation.
