Beta reader appreciation post.

Another reason to appreciate [livejournal.com profile] penwiper26 is that she says things like "You really need to watch Call the Midwife" and then I get hooked and can't stop watching just when I should be doing a million other things. Thanks so much. :) But really, it's lovely and just what I need right now. And has me contemplating the differences between tropes and cliches. It's a very trope-heavy show, but doesn't cause cliche-groaning very often. I do find that I'm predicting plot twists on a regular basis, however.

I think I've decided against watching Sleepy Hollow this season, after the first episode. Not that it was bad, exactly, but the thrill is gone, and I don't need more distractions. One can always catch up in the throes of influenza or something (though I'll probably get a shot). The people whose B&B I stayed at in northeastern Iowa have a son who's doing computer animation for the show (along with all sorts of movies), but that's not enough of a connection to keep going. I am hanging on for The Good Wife, Castle, and (surprisingly to me) Doctor Who. And Person of Interest when it comes back - yay Shaw! And season 3 of Miss Fisher was terrific.

Okay, so now I need to go insert the word "bootstrap" into Not Time's Fool somewhere, and accomplish other miracles of editing.

I, OTOH, am about to give up on Castle (which seems to have jumped a shark the size of the Grand Canyon), but am hanging onto Sleepy Hollow (purely because Tom Mison is eye candy of the highest order [wry g]).

I've only made it up to season 2 of Miss Fisher, but I love, love, love that show. It's right up there with Murdoch Mysteries (a Canadian show about a turn-of-the-last-century police detective in Toronto).
