Because [livejournal.com profile] rinnus complained that I'm not doing these posts anymore, and because there are a few new very promising shows this summer.

Twisted
An ABCFamily show that has quite a bit of a Pretty Little Liars feel to it. The basic story is, that 16-year-old Danny returns to his home town after he has spend five years in juvenile prison for killing his aunt. No one knows why he did it, and he is not telling anyone. so when there is another murder in town he very quickly becomes the prime suspect.

Under The Dome
A small town suddenly finds itself trapped under an invisible force field. No one can get out, no one can get in, and some people seem to have a few secrets. Whether those secrets have anything to do with this mysterious event remains to be seen.
The show's concept kinda feels like something we have all seen before but that's no necessarily a bad thing. After all, that doesn't mean that you have any idea what's really going on in this version of the story.
It also has Colin Ford and, guys, he's all grown up.

Siberia
Siberia is about a reality tv show gone wrong; mostly because they picked the wrong place, a place were strange things are happening. It was supposed to be a game, until the strange noises started and people ended up dead.
Again, not exactly a new concept, but entertaining. If you've seen The River: It reminds me a lot of that show.

I just watched the pilot of Cult, and it was everything I could have hoped for. It has also no fourth wall to speak of. No, I'm serious.

Cult is a tv show on the CW, that is basically about a tv-show called Cult on the CW.

Well hey these things just snap right off (no major spoilers) )

In conclusion: Cult has the potential to become my new two favourite shows.

Edit: Trailer

I'm about half way through "Unholy Night" by Seth Grahame-Smith, and I'm loving every second of it.

some spoilers for the first half of the book )

To be honest, I didn't expect much from this show when I asked for the DVDs for Christmas. I only wanted it because it has Sebastian Roché in a leading role and I figured that even if it turned out to be a rather trashy scifi show it would probably still be entertaining.

Five episodes into the show, it turns out that, despite the rather ridiculous initial set-up and the not too great special effects, the show is actually pretty good. It has episodic storylines, that always add something to the big arc, it has interesting characters that struggle with this weird situation they're thrown into, the weight on their shoulders and their relationships with each other. It's a group of very different characters, thrown together by the cause of events. They have their differences, but they learn to trust each other and become a team.

some very general spoilers but no major plot points )

I finished Survivors yesterday. I had almost forgotten how amazing that show is. If you haven't seen it already you should give it a try.

very vague general spoiler but nothing that will ruin the show for you )

Here are two very different Supernatural Big Bangs that I feel are absolutely worth reading:

Apocalypse Z
by [livejournal.com profile] baylorsr
Genre: Gen
Rating: PG-13
Word count: 21,559
Summary: Brian Williams was gravely saying, “Remember, once a person has been bitten, they must be shot in the head before they die and reanimate." Of all the ways he’d imagined the world ending, this one had never entered Sam’s mind. It’s the zombie apocalypse, and Sam, Dean and Castiel are just trying to get to Bobby’s in one piece. And not undead.

If there ever is a Supernatural movie I want it to follow this story. It's funny, full of action, witty one-liners and... well, zombies. It's a whole new sort of apocalypse for the Winchester boys and Castiel and still so very much Supernatural.


Named
by [livejournal.com profile] mclachlan
Pairing: Dean/Castiel
Rating: R
Word Count: 95,000
Summary: Jesus Christ is dead. Somehow, that isn't the worst part of Dean's week.

I know this is long but it's worth every second you spend reading it. Every single character is captured perfectly, with original characters fitting in seamlessly. The writing is stunning and Dean's and Castiel's relationship is portrayed so beautifully and still so true to the characters that it takes your breath away.
And on top of it you get the most epic storyline that, by all logic, should never be able to work but it does.

I watched the pilot of "Persons Unknown" last night and it is one of those shows that got me hooked immediately.
Cut for overall theme but no real spoilers )


On a different topic: Today's post on [livejournal.com profile] dailymisha reminded me for how long I've actually known Misha before Supernatural.
Cut for pictures, possibly spoilers and because most of you are probably fed up by now with me talking about the guy. ;) )
