*drrooool* *makes grabby hands at Ron Livingston's Matt like nobody, like no one's business!* I want...I want...I want! Liked him in Officespace AND Sex in the City (pre his character's post-it breakup note)...he was so funny & cute in both...Loved him in Band of Brothers...he was funny-ish & heroic...as for him as he is in this...OMFG! SOOOOOO HAWT!!! *wants to jump both his & John Sheppard/Joe Flanigan's bones at the same time so very badly* Must be his hair. It's so long & floppy-ish! *faints deadaway into a puddle of womanly gooooo* ~ur pal, Sharma, still foaming at the mouth loike WHOOOAAAAAA ;)

I have such love for Ron Livingston... so it was natural that his playing Matt would be, oh, perfect. *glee*

Plus, this show's idea seems aimed at 'shippers and hell if I'm going to be one that complains about writers exploring a relationship!

I love boys. They're just so pretty. *steals them all*

Oh my GOD. It's like a show MADE FOR US. When is this in the Uk?????

I remember seeing a promo AGES ago and being like, OMG BOOKMARK THIS SHOW FOREVER. Lo and behold... BRILLIANT.

When is this in the Uk?????

As soon as a handful of episodes air and I can burn them to a disc for you. ;)

Twin icons!

What is Standoff?? A new show I need to watch? Tell meee!
phrenitis From: phrenitis Date: September 8th, 2006 01:53 am (UTC) (Link)
Yes! Watch this!

Of course only the pilot has aired thus far, meaning the entire show could go to shit pretty damn quickly... but I have faith.

I don't think you'll have gotten it yet (it airs on Fox, Tuesdays at 9pm). If you bittorrent, you can download the premier. Otherwise, remind me in a couple of months once more episodes have aired and I'll wing 'em to you on disc.

The tagline for the show is - "There's no crisis situation they can't handle ... unless it involves each other." Does it get better than that? ;)

It doesn't!!

Sadly I haven't found the premiere yet though. :( Although I haven't really had time to look very hard. :p

Oh dude, definitely. Here's hoping you'll have 'net by tomorrow though... 'cause omg Vala!

ok, so i missed the pilot when it aired, but then i saw this ^ on your lj, and thought, OMGTHATISAWESOME!!!!!!

so i d/l'd it.

and i think i might have to blame you for a new obsession.

*curses you* *adores you*

that is all.

Aw... I feel all proud now. :P

Standoff is shiny and pretty, and OMG--look!--Gina Torres. I enjoyed both episodes that have aired so far thoroughly, and during commercials, just sat there and questioned it all.

How is it they have UST when their UST has been resolved?

Oh, fandom.

...um...permission to flist?
phrenitis From: phrenitis Date: September 14th, 2006 02:13 am (UTC) (Link)
Gina Torres is of the fantastic. Her line delivery? SLAYS ME.

I think I already have an unhealthy love of Standoff two episode in. There are leads kissing! Eye-sexing! Communicating! How is this possible? Where did these writers come from? Can we keep them forever?

Would love the friending. Anyone with Jordan/Woody in their interests means we're practically soulmates. ;)
hyacinthian From: hyacinthian Date: September 14th, 2006 03:19 am (UTC) (Link)
Gina Torres is amazing. They should create a new adjective from her name which means amazing. Like gtorresian. (The g is silent?) But I digress.

Yes, Jordan/Woody. Otherwise known as AngstFest in Boston.

And Matt and Emily's awkwardness with the marriage line? Made me incredibly happy.

And your writing of the real person fic? And I thought I quit that habit so long ago.

Damn you and your insane writing abilities!

Ahaha! I forgot to tell you that I totally used that "adjective" the other day when a friend quoted Firefly. We need to add you to Urban Dictionary. ;)

Jordan/Woody. Otherwise known as AngstFest in Boston

*snort!* And yay premier on the 20th!

Damn you and your insane writing abilities!

Aw, lol. Glad you enjoyed. :)
