So, my brothers started watching this show a long time ago. Well, at the beginning of December, my mom started watching it. I knew it existed, but as zombies give me the heebs more than anything else, I have avoided even previews of it. So, one day, she was at my brother’s apartment and as I don’t have a key for the house, I had to go to his apartment to wait for her to get ready to leave. Well, she was there watching it. The first episode I ever saw was Season 2 Episode 1. Needless to say, we watched it, then moved on to the second one, and she was ready to go by the end of the second one and I made her stay for one more. This show sucked me in. Granted, I’ve had nightmares about it, but I can’t stop watching it, now. So, mom got Seasons 1 and 2 for Christmas and we spent Monday through yesterday watching all of the episodes. I’ve seen Season 3 Episode 1 as I downloaded it from Itunes when I got to work, but I have some thoughts I thought I would share.

I decided that since I've been depressed that the best thing to do is to look at the good things I have. The good outweighs the bad, really.

Good things:
- My family - while they drive me crazy, most days, I know that when I need them there are there with all the love and support they can offer. My Godfather, my dad's youngest brother, just called me today because he was thinking about me and wanted to talk to me. One of my dad's sisters was in the Disney store when it was going out of business and saw some Nightmare Before Christmas stuff and knew I loved it, so she bought it and sent it to me, just because. My dad and mom have done everything they can to make me feel better, to my dad trying to make me laugh because he doesn't like to see me upset. Landon offers hugs and kisses at random times and has come up to me recently and patted me and said "Ashey no cry, ok?"
- My friends - specifically Michelle - is a never ending ream of support. I have to say that while she does get on my nerves occasionally, she's as close to a sister as I will ever have. Thing is, we're both two people who don't let the other wallow and feel sorry for themselves. We kick one another in the ass when we need it, we listen, and we're capable of making the other laugh when no one else can. She is driving four hours the weekend of my birthday just to hang out with me.
- My computer - it's pretty awesome. I bought it as a whole set from Sam's a few years ago. It's a Dell, which is all I will ever own now, and it's fabulous! It has enough room for me to play WoW and keep both Sims 2 and 3.
- World of Warcraft - you have no idea how cathartic it is to go kill some stuff when you're feeling upset.
- Craig Ferguson - I DVR this show because he makes me laugh. I think he's the best late night has to offer. I really like that he rarely ever talks to the people about what they're there to plug. Some of my favorite recent guests: Tom Felton, Robert Downy Jr., Tim Allen, Gerard Butler, and Emma Thompson. I also love his little cussing rabbit, Sid.
- That 70's Show and Big Bang Theory - I love these two shows. I've seen some episodes of That 70's Show so many times I can recite the words. Big Bang Theory, I love this show the more I watch it.
- The soundtracks of Glee - Truly has helped me get through today. "Don't Stop Believing", "Dream On", "Smile", and "Alone" can always bring a smile to my face, and goosebumps to my arms.
- And last but not least, you guys - There is a core group of you that offer never ending support. As long as I've had this journal, I know that I can come here and tell you guys things that I would never tell my real life people and you would never judge me of it. Some of you post things that make me laugh, think, and sometimes go "PLEASE PUT NAKED PEOPLE BEHIND A CUT" but it's almost always entertaining. My last post I cried while I wrote it, but after the love and support you guys sent my way, it really did make me feel better. You're the best online friends that a person could ever have.

So, really, thank you so much guys. Just keep being you.
ashleyfanfic: (OMG - big bang theory)
So, I've been roaming the internet before class starts looking for spoilers for Young and the Restless and I came across this message board and what I saw there just really freaked me out.

On Young and the Restless, there is a character named Adam Newman. He hates his father and brothers and sisters and went about making all their lives miserable for months. Even to the point of driving his father's wife crazy and making her think she saw a ghost. One night, when he was doing this, he even caused her to fall down the stairs while she was pregnant and lose her baby. He called up a OBGYN that he was blackmailing and made the guy give her a fake ultrasound to show that she was still pregnant. She continued to have hallucinations, created by Adam, to the point where she was eventually checked into an insane asylum.

Meanwhile, Sharon, who is pregnant with her ex-husband's baby, only he doesn't know at first that it's his, is also having some real problems dealing with life. She gets arrested for shoplifting and as a way to stay out of jail ends up in the same insane Asylum as Ashley. Adam and the Doctor stayed close to the hospital and one night, while the hospital is in lock down, Adam is in the room with Ashley, his father's wife, and the Doctor is in the room with Sharon as they both go into labor. Well, Ashley is having a hysterical pregnancy and she "beleives" she's going into labor. Adam gives her a sedative and knocks her out. The doctor delivers Sharon's baby and goes into the hallway where Adam meets him and takes the baby from him and then carries it in to Ashley. He made the doc tell Sharon that her baby died.

So, for months, Sharon grieves the loss of her baby and Adam starts to get close to her and they fall in love. Adam never tells her about it baby. It eventually comes out that the baby that Ashley believes is hers is actually Sharon and Nick's and Adam had switched them (they find this out by a note left by the doctor should he die, which he did, and Adam was involved). Sharon and Nick get the baby back and Adam goes on the run and then fakes his own death in order to escape.

But, Adam is back now and has been released on all charges. He's still pursuing Sharon and Sharon is kind of wishy washy.

Here's my issue. This man STOLE her baby. He sat and watched her suffer with the knowledge that her baby had died and never told her the truth. In fact, he still maintains his innocence as much as he can and is nearly stalking Sharon. But there are people on this message board that think that Adam and Sharon should be together! I know that people on this show have done horrible things to one another, but come on! He STOLE HER BABY!! He allowed her to suffer to save himself. If she takes Adam back, I will never watch this show again. Period. I think it's reprehensible that he was even allowed back into the city and they didn't throw him under the jail.

This just really irritated me and I need a place to voice it.
ashleyfanfic: (memphis beat)
I love the show, Memphis Beat. I like cop shows that have a little bit of humor with them and with Jason Lee it couldn't help but have a little humor. I also love that the show is set in Memphis and they actually use real Memphis landmarks in their show.

Day 19 - Best TV show cast

I'm going with Friends. To me, they all managed to blossom and bloom and you really cared about what happened to these characters. I mean, the Rachel/Ross will they/won't they was huge!

Days 1-31 )

Day 18 - Favorite title sequence

Probably Angel: The Series, really because I just LOVED that theme song. I mean, it was haunting and beautiful and it really set the mood for the show.

Days 1 - 31 Under the Cut )

Day 17 - Favorite mini series

I don't actually watch mini-series. I will say that I watched about twenty minutes of the Thornbirds, once. So...Thornbirds?

Day 16 - Your guilty pleasure show

Hannah Montana. I don't know why, but I will find myself sitting down and watching hours of this show. It's sometimes very funny.

ashleyfanfic: (buffy/spike)
Day 15 - Favorite female character

This one was really hard for me. I was torn between three characters: Buffy Summers, Joey Potter, and Jackie Burkhart. But in the end, Buffy won.

Buffy is one of those characters that will go down in history as being memorable and sets herself apart. Buffy was the chosen one, yes, but at the same time she was also a teenager who was experiencing the same sort of self doubts that regular teens with through. She was spunky, funny, loyal, and devoted. Her task, at times, weighed heavily on her, but she persevered. At times, what she was faced with was insurmountable, but she made it through, often times by sheer dumb luck.

But despite being a hero, she was also a girl/woman. She experienced the heartbreak of losing your first love, the uncertainty that goes with it. She felt pressure to fit in. Her friends were her world. And despite her troubled life of being the slayer, she never lost her sense of humor or, even when struggling with coming back from heaven, she never lost her sense of self. Yes, she was ashamed that she liked being with Spike and the naughty things he did to her, but a lot of women experience those feelings. And despite all she went through, she was always Buffy: daughter, sister, friend, savior, slayer.

"It's do or die, hey I've died twice."

So, I have several favorite male characters ranging from Spike from Buffy/Angel to Kelso from That 70's Show. By my all time favorite, number one character is Pacey Witter from Dawson's Creek. Josh Jackson pulled off lovable sidekick better than anyone. However, in DC, Pacey got the girl. He was a romantic, goofy, adorable, sometimes an ass, but he was always one of a kind. Pacey was the only character, ever, that made me swoon. And I mean, hardcore SWOON! I loved him. He was, is, and always will be the heart of Dawson's Creek.

Day 11 - A show that disappointed you

Dawson's Creek disappointed me for a long time, but I think the show I was most let down by would have to be That 70's Show. My issue with That 70's Show comes in the form of Jackie/Fez. The entire show, Jackie always railed against Fez and him being foreign. And then they decided that it made sense for Jackie and Fez to be together? EXCUSE ME?! The best thing that ever happened on that show was when they put Jackie with Hyde. He helped ground her more, made her less selfish, and she made him more open. I hated that the writers decided that it was a better idea for Jackie to be with Fez. Don't get me wrong, I love Fez, but not with Jackie.

So, yeah, I watched the last season of That 70's Show one time where as the others I've seen them so many times I could possibly quote them to you.

Day 10 - A show you thought you wouldn’t like but ended up loving

I blame this on my mother, but Big Bang Theory. I thought it was stupid, at first. But now, I watch it and laugh out loud. It makes me happy. Sheldon drives me crazy, Leonard is sarcastic, Raj is adorable, and Howard...god, I would love to give him a make over! Also, Penny is pretty kick ass and she knows the exact moments to give in to Sheldon's craziness and when to just ignore him. I sort of love that about her.

Day 09 - Best scene ever

I just want to share because this is the best episode for this stuff....

Favorite part is this-
Kelso: Angie, you're cute as a button, but you burn like a bo-tard.

Under the Cut )
ashleyfanfic: (Kelso !!!)
Day 08 - A show everyone should watch

Hmmm...I want to say True Blood...because I think it's really just top notch. But I'm going with Glee. There is something about that show that can always make me smile, whether it's the cheesy musical numbers or Sue cutting down Mr. Shue's hair. I love it. Totally. Completely.

Under the Cut )
ashleyfanfic: (pacey and joey)
Day 07 - Your least favorite episode of your favorite TV show

Wow, that's hard to say. I hated Coda, but I think my least favorite episode of Dawson's Creek would have to be Four Stories. I hated it. They made Pacey a jerk, and Joey blatantly lied to Dawson and put his feelings above those of Pacey. She always treated Pacey like crap. I sort of hated her for that.
