Spent way too much time on Tumblr  
So I got my new laptop on Tuesday and I have been really pleased so far. I'm excited about it but I got onto Tumblr and spent way too much time wading though fandoms. So while, I know I have stuff to answer and posts to read... I have to go all fandom-y.

[Vikings more specifically Rollo....]

I'm super excited to watch the recent episode though I've not had time but plan to make the time tonight. Granted it only tapped last night but it was a long week. And the weekend is going to be long too.

I'm loving Vikings this season. I mean the are having so much Rollo on which is the best part for me and I can't wait to see the Bear marry the Princess. I hope it is as awkward and hot as I imagine. LOL

Saw this image on Tumblr with the caption, "Imagine coming home to a shirtless Rollow after and exhausting day at work." All I can say is yes please!

Then, of course, there is Outlander.

[Outlandering with Jamie Fraser....]Jamie is killing me with his romantic flare. I have to admit that the 9th episode (first of the second half of the season) made me so happy. I loved it despite it's controversial nature. 10 was a bit slow for me but I understand they had to get through that informations. 11 was bloody fantastic and I've already watched it 5 times. But I'm excited and dreading the rest of the season.... oh gosh. I like to think I'm not biased and this show is crazy good but it is hard to judge because... well I am biased.

And then there was Ollie!
[Little bit of Arrow... So that happened...]

This video is killer!

And as Felicity said, "So that happened." And I said...
But the darn show made me cry! Yes, I cried over Arrow and the next episode looks good too.

That is the end of my fandom. I'll do a real post and comments soon.

I've never watched Vikings, but after that last pic, I might have to start watching...YUM!

I see now that Amazon Prime has Outlander available, I might try and give it another go.

Arrow...My problem is I just can't imagine walking away from someone like Ray - yes, he's my man...I mean smart, gorgeous, caring, gentle, a geek who loves Dr Who and kind...I can see Ollie is attractive, but he just does nothing for me. But glad you got your happy moment between him and Felicity :)

Rollo is the man! And this last episode of the season was really good and such a surprise but my favorite part the very last scene with Rollo and his goofy grin...

I did hear that about Amazon Prime. I think the show is great but I'm biased.

Okay Oliver is so my man. I mean in the real world Ray is the man. He's what you want. You don't want a broody guy who has the issues Oliver has but when it comes to the show, I'm all about Oliver.

I absolutely LOVE Vikings and have been watching it since the beginning. I've been a Travis Fimmel fan since his days as a Calvin Klein model. I thought for sure he was a goner in last night's finale. What a trickster! I can't stand Princes Gisla. Next season should be excellent.

The second half of Outlander has been outstanding. I hope, REALLY hope, that Jamie says that entire speech (as quoted in your pics above) on the journey to Lollybroch. It just HAS to be included.

Dish Anywhere update: I called Dish yet again about not being able to get Outlander on Dish Anywhere and the tech I spoke to this time said the problem was with out decoder/DVR unit. According to Dish's records, our unit is obsolete, is not giving authorization and that's causing the problem. Not sure I believe that, but we're going to talk to our installer next week. A new unit won't cost us anything nor will the labor. However, we'll lose everything on our current unit when it's replaced with the new one so hubby and I are watching a lot of TV to see everything we've recorded before we lose it.

I can't stand the Princess either but that is because she totally dissed my man! I adore Rollo. Uh to be that Princess! I was stunned by Ragnar's move too. I thought he actually died and I thought... whoa... that is a big move but this was awesome too.

Yeah, he didn't say it. So bummed but I still love the way the show is going. I did love the airplane discussion and that brief moment with the elephant discussion. So adorable.

Oh I know how that goes. Sucks. I figure I'll get to watch it somehow but I have no idea. I'm hoping to get to the post now that I have a laptop to take down with me... like Sunday night maybe... Monday. I just have to see how things go.

I hope things go smoothly and hopefully they'll show another Outlander marathon so you can re-record them all.

Oh, I've recorded them all and have transferred them to DVDs. I'll keep them until I have professionally made Blu-ray discs.

I know. I can't believe they did that to us! What a blow to the heart.

That definitely happened! And I thought about you the whole time I was watching, being the biggest Oliver/Felicity shipper I know. :)

Very well done episode. I'm so curious to see where it goes ... I feel they won't be apart for too long, as the last episode in the season is titled "my name is Oliver Queen" so we know he isn't going to leave his old life behind so easily. This is Oliver, he'll find a way.
Jill aka Jo: Arrow: Time to be a superherosireesanwar on April 28th, 2015 06:18 pm (UTC)
LOL Yep, there was squeeing and then crying. I was a mess. Why are they doing this to us????

It is true. I hope they get some resolution soon but I'm so afraid things will get too odd if Felicity and Oliver just get together but I want it so much!

Oliver is a great hero.
tracyj23tracyj23 on April 28th, 2015 06:29 pm (UTC)
I really like him as a hero too, even if he is frustrating sometimes. He's much more human than some of them and I like that - he makes mistakes and bad decisions and has to live with them. It makes for a better story than the perfect superhero who always saves the day and does the right thing.
Jill aka Josireesanwar on April 28th, 2015 06:42 pm (UTC)
It is so true. He's very human and I like that a lot too.

New laptop YAY!!!

tumblr has the ability to swallow you as a whole and when you surface again, hours have gone by LOL

It is so true!

I know. I love me some Jamie.

I really should watch Vikings. Just to see if there's anything historiclly correct at all. *lol* :-D If only I had any time to do so... *sulk*
Jill aka Josireesanwar on May 22nd, 2015 12:28 am (UTC)
It is more likely that there are nods to history... I don't know much about it but I do think Rollo is supposed to be a historical figure... that's about all I know... I just really enjoy the show.
KSena: SoA Chibs scars by far_to_nowhere@stolenkseenaa on May 22nd, 2015 09:11 pm (UTC)
Yeah, just the ancestor to William the Conquered... ;-) But he was quite a bit of diplomat and noble man as well, which I doubt is shown in the series. *lol*
Jill aka Josireesanwar on May 28th, 2015 11:40 pm (UTC)
He's not had much of a chance as when he was part of the Viking hoard he had little to no say in things with Ragnar being King and his brother. He's chafed at these restrictions and now being left behind in France I'm betting Rollo is going to make his way. He's got opinions and he's really smart at strategy and awesome in a battle... I'm so dying to see next season.
KSena: Cool story bro by liighthouse@seastarcovkseenaa on June 1st, 2015 11:06 am (UTC)
I can see now that it doesn't have that much to do with history as it were... But it certainly sounds interesting still, so if and when I get a chance, I might check it out. :-) If nothing else to be amused at how much of history the creators get wrong. Unlike other history-nerds, such things amuse me. I'm not horrible for that, am I?
Jill aka Josireesanwar on June 4th, 2015 12:31 am (UTC)
Nope! It bugs me too with some things. But for this show I haven't really cared. But I totally understand it.
