Pet peeve time!

1) If you do not run your fic by a beta, please do not announce it in your author's note. What's the point? I can't imagine it's going to get you any readers.

2) PHASE vs. FAZE, omg. You go through a phase. You may be fazed by it. I see this mistake so often I almost started to doubt myself.

3) Criminal Minds, you're already on my bad side for what you're doing to JJ and Prentiss. Can you at least throw me a bone and make Garcia's lipstick a little less garish? I'm trying to find something to be pleased with, but you're really making me work for it.

4) Glee, Jacob Ben Israel is expendable and don't you forget it.

5) Inception, it really kind of irks me that every main character except Yusuf gets one of those big nifty mosaic-framed promo shots. Or if he did get one, I've certainly never seen it. Chubby brown guys need to get repped, too.

...hi, I'm a little cranky. I think I'll go finish S1 of Carnivale.

So, thanks to various tip-offs via [livejournal.com profile] bluerosefairy, [livejournal.com profile] nakeno, and [livejournal.com profile] imkalena, I'm watching The Inside.

Also known as the show that looks and sounds like Criminal Minds and came out around the same time as Criminal Minds, but only lasted a season, unlike Criminal Minds. You've got your door-kicking badass, your tormented leader with his tormented spouse, your sassy tech-girl, your enigmatic wisecracking veteran, and your vulnerable undernourished prodigy, all thrown into a crime-show setting and voila, limited number of outcomes.

It kind of bothers me that it's not so much an ensemble show as it is a Mary Sue fest in which the gorgeous blond chick is tragic and brave and right about everything. They do use the word unsub a lot less frequently, though, so that's nice.

Adam Baldwin is in it, and it's driving me nuts because his character is like a combination of his characters from Firefly and Chuck and it makes me feel like I've entered a parallel universe.

And the current episode is about a guy who does disgusting things with dolls, so I think I'm gonna go do some more vocalizing in the Eliza Doolittle vein now.
