i am not okay  
i am wandering around the city drunk.

i fell into my own window more than once.

i don't want to discuss what happened last drunked-wandering 'cuz that's embarrassing.

But I know people.  And if my indignation lasts calling certain people out will be both justice and my call from purgatory.

Because They. Just. Did. Not...

Stab, With, Pen.

Should we be concerned about you?

Boozeless day has passed and booze-yes day commenced but no, I am secure that I'm good in cities, at least Boston, and mad dashes across streets are perfectly safe, so no concern necessary except when a truck backfired going down Commonwealth 20 feet from me and I had a little freak out which I thought was reasonably justified.

Smash may be evil though.

I really need a new fandom, Smash was ever always a rebound from Being Erica only I can't rewatch because of the sneaking suspicion Black Orphan is a better choice seeing as how episodic was always less interesting to me than the ongoing Erica/DrT narratives. *dies*

Yeah, I could use a new fandom myself. I've been away from TV for months because I didn't really have access to it where I was living and have been insanely busy but I miss Being Erica and being immersed in fictional lives.

And it took me a while to stop being a dork but Dave and Ivan are doing Orphan Black! (The awesome producers, not namesake characters.) And they fell in love with Maslany on Being Erica! And it's a Canadian production and everyone rocks! And it's a little sci fi so they have the Canadian angle and sci fi angles covered and help me but I don't think there's actually a downside to this fandom.

(Where even BE had that we'rd 1.5 years and the "Erica/DrT creeps out most fans but the writers feel it so you aren't tripping when you ride the undercurrents.")

I'll have to check it out at some point. Does it also have awesome hard-to-define relationships like Erica/DrT that will help suck me in?

Hmm. Good question and I'll go with yes. Very much so.

But not in the same way because Erica/DrT was literally the core of the show and Orphan Black has a different approach, but all the characters are complex and have complex relationships with everyone else, and the fandom currently has several favourites.

There is one that drew me in, it reads a lot like Erica/DrT, and it is introduced in the first episode. (10 eps long, 10 months before season 2 ;) )

Also they have great production values and the usual gauntlet of "no biggie, this is Canada" like normalized gay guys and lesbians (!), non-glorified violence, etc

I love Canadian TV. :) Don't know why more people don't appreciate it.

Accessibility can't help - though Orphan Black being on BBC America, and thus fairly mainstream, gives it... IDEK, I think a lot of people think it IS a BBC production, but I was poking iTunes the other day and an Orphan Black episode had second highest downloads.

Maybe it'll be a gateway drug show... *g*

P.S. I was reading some stuff on AV Club about my all-time favourite show, Slings & Arrows, and apparently the writers & director of the show read the reviews and responded to people in the comments section there... guess this is just something Canadian showrunners do!
