So I rewatched five episodes of The Inside last night and I am still pissed that it got canceled. Rachel Nichols and Adam Baldwin in a show created by Tim Minear! With bonus supercreepy Peter Coyote. For real, Webb was a freaking menace - the puppetmastering with Roddy and Alison!

Also, the hot blonde new girl is also the team's stone-cold badass and it is great. Usually you have the world-weary older male partner and the naive rookie, but this show's veterans are all some degree of "soft", with the classic empathetic partner role going to one of the dudes, Paul, while rookie Rebecca has the traumatic past/intimacy issues/cynicism.

Relatedly, it has been awhile since I uploaded any shows. What would be the best site for that? Since the torrent I got these eps from was hard to find in 2006, let alone now, and they never did release the promised DVD.

Yuletide!

I am actually going to attempt it this year, which means I get to nom things!

Current (hopefully final - I can't take more brackets) nominations are:

The Inside (tv): Rebecca Locke! I just love her a lot, you guys. She is badass and competent and totally, totally crazy. Also, y'know, Rachel Nichols; I heart her (P2 just lost out to Kick Ass in the brackets).

Kick Ass (movie): Hit Girl is amazing (she totally thinks Batman is a pussy) and I'm pretty sure Mindy Macready/Sam Puckett is the best crossover OTP I have ever had.

Lorna Freeman - Borderlands novels: I NEED IT. I NEED IT SO MUCH. IF I COULD ONLY PICK ONE, IT WOULD BE THIS. LIKE, OBVS I AM VERY IN FAVOR OF RABBIT GETTING *ALL* THE BOYS, BUT AT THIS POINT, I AM TOTALLY OKAY WITH GEN RABBIT AND WILN SORCEROUS SHENANIGANS. JUST GIVE ME FIC!

P C Hodgell - Chronicles of the Kencyrath: Jame/Bane was my kinky OTP before I knew what kink or OTPs were. Violence! Bloodplay! Incest! IT COULD BE RELEVANT TO YOUR INTERESTS. Also, there's amnesia and apocalypses and philosophy and thieves and assassins and fealty and magic and it's all about a totally badass lady who's more comfortable fucking you up than talking about "feelings" (she fucks around with the existence of a god just to see if she can! I LOVE HER).

Painkiller Jane: The show is kind of terrible, but it has the bones of an awesome universe and then there is JANE. Jane is like Claire Petrelli, Max Guevara, and Sara Pezzini had a baby and she is AWESOME.

Wen Spencer - Ukiah Oregon series: Ukiah! But also Atticus! Atticus/Ru! Canonical OTP! And you know what's also canon? ALIEN SEX DRUGS MADE THEM DO IT. ROUGHLY. Oh yeah, and also, THEY FIGHT CRIME.

Man, I need to check for clean electronic copies of these books. EXPECT THEM TO APPEAR ON THE BOOK FILTER SHORTLY. They may not be pretty versions, but THEY WILL BE THERE.

New Show

So, on my flist, [livejournal.com profile] fox1013 mentioned this show, The Jake Effect, and omg, people, I cannot resist a show with Leslie Grossman (Mary Cherry!), Nikki Cox, and Greg Grunberg. So I torrented the first three episodes and I love it. I mean, it fails in some places and the third ep kind of sucked, but I really enjoyed the first one. So I uploaded it.

The Jake Effect, 1x01

Oh, and since once I start uploading, I find it hard to stop, I'll be editing this post with links. Links to what, I'm not sure. Probably the second ep of The Jake Effect, almost definitely some of The Inside, and possibly Little Britain.

And if anyone wants some Bones, Angel, The Evidence, NCIS, Criminal Minds, How I Met Your Mother, or Heist, I've got most of those series on here. Plus random eps of Invader Zim, CSI: NY, Grey's Anatomy, and House.

ETA: The Jake Effect, 1x02. And I've got The Inside pilot and some season one House (the pilot, Poison, and Detox) up here. Plus, I'm currently uploading Three Stories, which is one of my favorite episodes ever. Oh, and the reason these links are from three different sites is that I was trying to find one I liked as much as sendspace, since they capped their uploads at 300 MB.

ETA2: Okay, so I've uploaded Three Stories and episodes one, five, seven, nine, ten, eleven, and thirteen of The Inside. And wow, it's a little bizarre that all my favorite eps of that show are odd-numbered. But people, that show is awesome. It was created by Tim Minear and stars as the incredibly fucked-up Special Agent Rebecca Locke the girl who later became Rachel Gibson on Alias. Plus it's got Peter Coyote as the creepily Svegali-esque Virgil Webb and Adam Baldwin (Jayne!) as Special Agent Danny Love.

There are only thirteen episodes, because Fox sucks, but those thirteen episodes have cannibalism, child killers, and the obligatory hallucination episode. Plus it's got Firefly nods and Amber Benson as a guest star.

If anybody's interested, I can upload more of The Inside, or what season two House I've got handy. Or both. Nothing makes me happier than people liking what I love.

Random fan stuff. Covers both the two weeks I spent re-immersing myself in Harry Potter and the four or so days right after I finished downloading all five seasons of Angel, where I was maybe briefly insane.

You know what's awesome? St. Valentine's Day is really just a big thing because the Roman Catholic Church is prudish. See, there was a pagan holiday in Italy around this time that was also a celebration of love. Except this holiday was much more about the debauchery. There was a whole thing where teenagers especially would form temporary "marriages" that were more about getting some socially-sanctioned ass than they were about love. So the Church made a big thing of St. Valentine's Day, and made it a holiday focused on courtly (non-physical) love.

Anyway. I have many new uploads.
