Sci-Fi Friday, in brief!  
No! Actually in brief this time!

Firefly: Whatever The Heck It Was Called. I love Adam Baldwin! I have warmed up to the captain! Zoe, Wash, Jayne and the Shepherd still earn my undying LOVE. As far as characters I am more undecided on: River was a Total Adorable Sweetie in this and I loved her, Simon was annoying and I wanted him to shut up, Inara was just kinda there and her "omg, the captain is such a noble dahling!" thing felt quite forced with the swelling soundtrack of romantic twittering, and I waffled with Kaylee between wanting her to shut up, thinking she was hilarious and being worried that she was going to eat someone.

SG-1: Babylon. Most. boring. episode. ever. My sister declared this and I'm afraid I must agree. It's fun to watch Cameron fall down the first time, but then... oy. Did anything actually happen in this episode? Anything AT ALL???? Definitely a few wonderful moments of gleee and a veritable united nations summit of sci-fi TV series alums, but we kept checking the clock. Gira and I spent the time divvying up TV boyfriends between us and discussing whether or not Dr. Lam's petulant attitude is more annoying now or when we thought she was Landry's ex.

Atlantis: Conversion. EEEEEEEEEEEEE BEST EPISODE EVER OMGWTF. I AM SO HAPPY ONLY CAPS LOCK CAN EXPRESS IT EEEEEEEEEEE. I really wish wish wish it was my week to recap at zeropointsnark just so that I could watch it over and over again with an excuse! I'll have to report back later with more thoughts, I think, because, OMG. SOLITAIRE. SKINNER BEING AWESOME. SPARKY. AJ AND ME WINNING AT FANDOM. SHEPPARD RONON ALPHA PISSING CONTESTS OMG. SKINNER AND LIZZIE PLAY CHESS! SPARKY SPARKY SPARKY! LITTLE RED SQUEEEE TIMES ONE BILLION. ONE BILLION!!!

BSG: The One With Xena. They used the old-skool BSG theme song for the documentary thinggy! All in all, this just proves again that reporters on TV shows are SO INCREDIBLY ANNOYING, even if they're sekritly robots. Everyone has a first name now, too! Gaeta totally tries to be The Fonz on camera with the smoking and all, but fails because HIS NAME IS FELIX. In other news, I have no idea if Boomer miscarried or not, because I missed whatever throwaway line of dialogue must have cleared that up. Help? That would suck so much. "After building up this baby thing for a season and a half, we thought we'd just end that plotline off-camera and let you know about it later. NEVER MIND, it's not the future of the universe after all!"

*still flailing* OMG. I want to write too many fic things all at once, but am having weird attack of brain this week and thinking I just can't handle my own fic ideas (err?) and therefore will just eye the hopeful explosion of fic to hit the internet. Or snap out of it. Mmmm mmmm good. :) *stalks the internet to proviiiiiide!*

I can verify that after Mitchell put his shirt back on, nothing at all happened in this episode.

And Boomer did not lose the baby.

wot? omg! right!

SPARKY RULES ALL OMFG. Except she can sex Skinner maybe once or twice. NO! SHE CAN'T! SPARKY FOREVER! I still want the Atlantis Orgy, and this made my sister tell me to go out and get laid because I care too much about the sex lives of fictional characters. Errrr.

*dies dead of Sparky joy*

And omg, the Teyla/Ronon awesomeness potential and and and I have DIED OF JOY. *pauses for breath*

Pooh: SGA - Sparky hug (by fifmeister)mspooh on September 10th, 2005 06:01 am (UTC)
Oh, thank god. Someone else who thinks Simon should shut up.

After Browder put his shirt back on, I stopped paying attention. Hee.

Ha! Nowhere in all that capslocking did I see anything about a kiss. *eyes you* BUT OMFG THE SPARKY KILLED. YOU DON'T NEED AN EXCUSE TO LOOP! (says I!) SPARKY HERE, SPARKY THERE, SPARKY EVERYWHERE! AND EVERYONE ELSE SEES IT, TOO! Even the SpankyRoverTeynonTex had their moments! *squeeeeeeeees*
Little Red: sga - t/r unconcealed - morwen_peredhilmylittleredgirl on September 10th, 2005 06:14 am (UTC)
Oh, thank god. Someone else who thinks Simon should shut up.

My sinful LJ girlfriend is totally breaking up with me for that, I think.

Ha! Nowhere in all that capslocking did I see anything about a kiss.

Because, err, I feel really weird about it. It really freaked me out -- both my sister and I started screaming with general "OMG DO NOT TOUCH HER AIIIEEEE!" and I was all *flail!* about her being incapacitated and kissed at like that and how things could go VERY BADLY (and no doubt will in a few fanfics, eep)... and then felt weird about it because it was totally a "Broca Divide" thing, but that got to be "hot" instead of "scary" because the woman was the aggressor. So now I feel sexist and disturbed, which doesn't make for a horribly sexy combination.

OMG. Okay. I might be crazy here, but I kept thinking that with the running races and the Shep!bitchiness at Ronon and then the Teyla!almost-sexing it was very much an ALPHA MALE thing. He gets bug'd and tries to retake his alpha position over Ronon in all thingz! This makes me really want a fic where Ronon asks Teyla if she has feelings for Shep, because I'm not quite sure what she would say. (I trust the general gist will be "not anymore," but I'm not sure how she'll phrase it, and I think it's an interesting thing to add into the Teyla/Ronon mix.)

OMG I ALMOST CALLED YOU DURING ATLANTIS UNTIL I REMEMEBERED IT WAS 3 HOURS LATER THERE!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (yeah, I know, only caps lock can show how much I wanted to call you *misses watching scifi with you deeply omg*)

Atlantis was, truly, the BEST. EPISODE. EVER! EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!
Little Red: sga - sw don't leave - jr_moonmylittleredgirl on September 12th, 2005 04:09 pm (UTC)
What do you bet Justin would have 'shipped Teyla and Shep just to piss us off?

WE WOULD HAVE SHRIEKED SO MUCH OMG.

Best. EVER!

Maybe you guys can have two zeropoint summaries for "Conversion?" Because its such a OMGAWESOME EPISODE!!!
Little Red: fridge magnets pr0n - josephidesmylittleredgirl on September 12th, 2005 04:10 pm (UTC)
Hmm... you're not the only one to have mentioned that. :) But I think it's probably best if we just stick to one. It's good that it's Pooh doing it this week, though, for she is omgbrilliant with teh Shippy and teh Shep Love and, er, in general! :-D
elliejane: duckyelliejane on September 10th, 2005 10:12 am (UTC)
Um, so the upshot is that Shep kissed on Teyla but Sparky still rules?

Is that right? Tell me that's right! That TPTB are just frelling/frakking with the fangirls??

I have seen no SGA S2 AT ALL YET and so rely on you folks to tell me how Sparky is doing!

Whoa. Have just realised I should have made an icon that says "Sparky" as well as the ducky one.

Sparky! Sparky, Sparky, Sparky, Sparky!

It's the most amazing thing ever! Shep and Teyla make out and it's ultimately a sparky episode! I LOVE THIS SHOW!

a universal sigh: SGA - S/W - first day savednaushika on September 10th, 2005 10:17 am (UTC)
SG-1: Agreed. Boring.

Lantis: Yay! Except the gross facehugger moment between Shep and Teyla.

Err, I posteded fic but it is oldish and erm, has nothing to do with any Lantis episode. But I give you the link in a desperate h0rish attempt for feedback.
Little Red: sga - sw breach trust - ethelineshermanmylittleredgirl on September 12th, 2005 04:13 pm (UTC)
Facehugger moment was SO GROSS AIIIEEEEEE. I keep having to hide under blankets whenever I see icons of it and stuff. I think this is more a life bias than a 'ship bias, though. I was okay with Shep/Teyla! I really was! And now I'm so totally not!! *flees*

OMG YOUR FIC IS SO TOTALLY AMAZING. *dies of joy* I've read it like eight times and must now actually give feedback. *slinks away*

Maybe you and Pooh could both do recaps? I don't think you would get ANY complaints from us for the double goodness. *g* I am so glad that you think there is great sparky moments in this ep. I haven't seen it yet and was all worried about that damn kiss. Now i don't feel so bad about watching it. Looking forward to more of your take on the ep and the recap from Pooh.
Little Red: sga - sw comfort hurricane - fifmeistermylittleredgirl on September 12th, 2005 04:14 pm (UTC)
Hee! Other people have mentioned that amid all my flailing. :) I think it's probably best if we only have one recap because omg, I do not want to be compared to Pooh's brilliance!, but I can't wait to see what she comes up with. :)

DUUUUUUUUDE OMG. So incredibly Sparky. I die of joy.
Katekatejaneway on September 10th, 2005 03:23 pm (UTC)
Pretty sure the baby's fine, from what the Cylons said at the end. But at least we know that a) The fleet is too far out for Cylons to transfer knowledge, because the Caprica Boomer said "I'm still alive!! :D" and that b) Caprica 6 has no friggin' idea that there's a 6 in Baltar's head.

I must be dense, that was Xena? I guess the blonde hair really does make a difference.
Little Red: bsg - old-skool CAPES! - liminallizmylittleredgirl on September 10th, 2005 03:27 pm (UTC)
... but wait, then how did they get the video clips if they're too far to transfer information? Or was that transfered in the more old-skool information-transfer way, not the cylon-brain way?

I didn't really get to hear any of the words from the last scene, clearly. :)

And they don't know about Six and Baltar!? Errrr. No, really, what the hell is she?

Firefly: Whatever The Heck It Was Called.

Like my flist, I'm totally behind with Firefly. Unlike my flist, I will have a DVD marathon soon and get all caught up. Yea!

Did anything actually happen in this episode?

(1) Hottest Sam/Dan scene ever!

(2) Sam/Barrett!

(3)"Not exactly." Squeeee!!!!!

whether or not Dr. Lam's petulant attitude is more annoying now or when we thought she was Landry's ex.

I vote for "now." But I also had a flash of understanding why Jack put them together "covertly": he knew they wouldn't both accept their assignments if they knew the other was going to the SGC. So if you can handwave through the annoyance, it really is a cool Jack move.

EEEEEEEEEEEEE BEST EPISODE EVER OMGWTF. I AM SO HAPPY ONLY CAPS LOCK CAN EXPRESS IT EEEEEEEEEEE.

EEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!! I SO TOTALLY AGREE!!!!!!!!! OMG THE SPARKY HOTNESS!!!!! (With this ep, I'm officially adopting "Sparky" ... though not giving up JoBeth. -g-) I'm totally going to break my tape with replaying. BREAK. IT. (Actually, for this ep? "Sparky" is not hot enough. No, really. [fans self])

[grabs mylittleredgirl in a humongous bear hug] ThankyouthankyouTHANKYOU for gently but persistently immersing me in JoBeth goodness from the beginning so this ep could rock my world. You are my hero!

They used the old-skool BSG theme song for the documentary thinggy!

I got seriously all misty-eyed over that. (happy sigh)

And OMG ... Laura and Bill Mom and Dad are sooo married!

'Tis most telling when I pop the tape in and watch SciFi Friday in the following order ...

BSG
Atlantis
SG1

But I'm still (totally and completely) addicted to Sam/Jack fic. :^)

(Must make time soon to create a Sparky icon.)

I looked at this with a big question mark until I realized that we're talking about different episodes. :) I think the one you're talking about aired last week. I'm completely not at all surprised that you forgot last night's one (where Cameron gets captured by Jaffa and goes through boot camp... or something...), because it was OMG THE BORING.

OH MY GOD THE SPARKY. I just watched it AGAIN of course and I am SO FULL OF SQUEEEEEE. It's... just... one of those where I'm all "I want to write fic! But that show was SO MUCH BETTER THAN FIC!" I don't even NEED to write fic right now! I love love love when my views of the characters actually show up on TV, you know? *squeeee*

and by "gently but persistently" you mean "with lots of flailing and all-caps", I assume

*LOVElovelovelove*

You know... I think I figured out why I'm not as into S/J fic anymore. It's resolved now, and I kind of like how they resolved it. Fanfic seems to work better when I'm less content. :)
