Can't sleep, clowns will eat me

Started watching "The Inside" last night on Fox. Because it's a Tim Minear show, and because it's got Adam Baldwin. And, hey, there's the sister from "Wonderfalls"! I'm kind of a sucker for serial killer shows, even though they creep me out.

About ten minutes in, after being grossed out repeatedly, I suddenly said to myself, "Self, why are you watching a scary serial killer show alone at night when Mr. Sus is out of town?" (I tend to talk to myself like that when I'm alone.) So then I turned it off. But I finished the rest of the episode this morning in the light of day. It wasn't too bad. Totally creepy and gross and scary, but pretty good. It's got a nice crime-fighting ensemble vibe going for it. And Adam Baldwin was awesome, basically just Jayne as an FBI agent.

Speaking of Tim Minear and crime-fighting ensembles, anyone wanna beta an Angel fic for me? I'm nearly done revising my first one, but I need another pair of eyes. And I need someone who actually, you know, watches Angel, so austin360, you're off the hook this time. It's a gen/action-adventure/humor kind of story, sort of like an actual episode in tone. Set during season five (so there's Spike!) but no romance, no schmoop, and no slash. Seriously, is it even possible to find an Angel fic community that isn't centered solely on a pairing or slash? Does no one write gen fic for this fandom? *le sigh*

I watch Angel, so I would love to read it, but you should know that while I'm great with plot/clarity kind of feedback, spelling/syntax etc is not my strongsuit (as alto and cassie can attest from the times they beta'd for me)

That would be great, thanks! I'm mostly worried about the plot/characterization aspects anyway. And whether or not it's actually funny at all. Or interesting. I've got one or two more passages to polish and then I'll send it to you. Is your lj email okay?

Yeah, that one works great *g* You'll get my real e-mail when I send it back.

I can always beta "Angel" stuff for you as well. Other than a point where I got tired of it being "Three Vampires and a Baby" and I stopped watching, I pretty much watched it the whole way through. Because they used to do crossover with "Buffy" and then because I THOUGHT they were gonna intertwine the "Angel" storyline and the final season of "Buffy" storyline more and then, well, they brought Spike over and so of course I wasn't going anywhere. :)

I don't know how you do that. I can't watch anything even remotely scary when B is gone. As it is, I find myself jumping at every tiny noise when I'm home at night alone.

Years of practice. Mr. Sus was in the army when we first got married so he would be gone for 4-6 weeks at a time. And this was during the first season of The X-Files, so it was either suck it up and watch alone, or don't watch at all. There were a few episodes I had to turn off (like Ice and Darkness Falls), but I managed to make it through most weeks.
