Sci Fi Friday Will Serve As Gleee!  
In which I ramble. For those of you who are bored and/or want to answer my occasional Very Important Fandom Question. :)

Stargate: Ever get the feeling that you know there has to be a gaping plothole somewhere in the episode, but you just don't care enough to find it? I really kind of ignored the larger plots of what was going on and just happily watched for the prettiness of Cameron Mitchell. YAYYYY. (And is it weird how much I really genuinely LOVE the new additions to the cast? I mean, I'm not even trying like I did with Doggett and Reyes on The X-Files. I just adore the heck out of them. Is that the response of the rest of fandom? Or is it just me?)

Was my 'ship radar supposed to go off when Mitchell busted that guy for talking about how Dr. Lam is a fine piece of chief medical ass? Because he was totally flirting with her earlier this season, but her name not being Dr. Landry leads me to conclude that there's a good chance she's married. (Except ALL MY CONCLUSIONS ABOUT HER ARE WRONG, as we have learned, and there's zero way that Stargate would make any of its recurring characters unavailable for UST like that.) Of course, he could have just been having an "ONLY YOU CAN STOP SEXUAL HARRASSMENT IN THE WORKPLACE!" moment, but I'm just saying, some Mitchell/Lam fics would not go awry. I actually find her really irritating, so don't ask me why I'm asking for more of her in my life. Oh, right! So I can have MORE CAMERON IN MY LIFE. Yay!

They totally gave Cameron Jack's lines about how Sam is s-m-r-t, though. And PAPA GENERAL HAMMOND! We hardly saw you! And you're wearing a suit which means you are retired and WHY DOES NO ONE TELL ME THINGS LIKE THIS ON-SCREEN!?!?? Where the fuck is Jack? WHERE THE FUCK IS SORA!?!?? (You know, given that Landry is a literal Papa General, I'm thinking we should just declare that the official title of SGC military commander, eh? ... You know it took me the whole rest of this post to remember that Jack was Papa General last season? Season 8 was hella memorable, y'all.)

For all the flak I give the soundtrack department for being so not subtle, I actually love them for it. I shrieked as soon as the Orlin theme came on. That kid (who I immediately IMDB-checked and who makes me now admit to having seen The Butterfly Effect it was a free preview, omg, and they gave me a pen that lights up) did the Orlin creepy-sweetness really, really well and must have studied that other actor's mannerisms a lot. I am both relieved and disturbed to know that Sam considered that whole nightmare a "relationship." Mostly disturbed, because that whole episode was not only The One About How Sam's Life Is SAD, but The One Which Could So Easily Have Gone Bad, Bad, Bad Mind-Rape Places. I mean, Orlin totally pressured her into the mind-meld thing, but Sam is weird and enjoyed having a live-in boyfriend too much to complain, so I suppose I can get over that now. Oh my God, they did creepy alien sex.

I also noticed as they quarrantined the United States how unusual it is for SGC events to impact the general population. Once or twice in season 6 and that building they vaporized a few weeks ago, but really, very rare. I wonder whether that was intentional for any part of the series... like, to make it more suspend-disbelievable that this is actually happening?

I'm annoyed that non-tailor-Garak got in league with the Ori. I mean, the Jaffa politicking was boring as hell (and I like alien politicking), but putting all our villains in one basket annoys me. It does make a lot of sense that the Jaffa would readily accept the Ori because their lives and societies have been built around worshipping higher beings and they're Just Not Ready For Democracy, but... meh. The phrase "Hallowed are the Ori!" is starting to bug me so much that I think I want to start saying it at random moments in my real life.

... k, that's all. :)

BSG: Er... I LOVE BOOMER. I LOVE TYROL/BOOMER. I LOVE HELO/BOOMER. I cannot choose! But omg, I LOVE LOVE LOVE that they're letting Tyrol have some real fallout. *heart broken*

Where was Six?

I still think Gaeta is a Cylon. However... my conviction is wavering, because if he was a Cylon, Boomer would know now that she has seen him. She might keep him alive for her own purposes, yeah, but at this point her mission in life seems to be to get on Adama's less bad side. I MISS GALACTICA SHARON. *hisses at Cally some more*

BILLY/DEE. Did you guys all see what they tried to do there? They tried to break up our ONE RAY OF HOPE on this entire TV show. OMFG. On the upside, this development makes me less opposed to Lee and Kara having sex, because then Lee is less likely to break up my OTP of HOPE.

Er. The prez is dying, liek, immediately. Fortunately, on BSG, "a few weeks" could easily take until the middle of next season. HOWEVER. Eep. But she's using Adama's quarters, and that made me squeee. In a world with considerably less relentless angst and death, they would've been great together.

And naming the 'ship "Laura"? I wibbled myself half to death. Even as I wanted to slap all the people who mocked Tyrol and now want to sign their names on the ship. Seriously, WHY was everyone so against it?

AND THE PREVIEWS. OMFG THAT WAS RO LAREN. OMFG SHE IS COMMANDER KANE. OMFG PEGASUS. OMFG OLD-SKOOL GALACTICA! How much do you want Sheba to show up and be a guy? SO MUCH. Though really, guy!Sheba would kind of be new-skool!Apollo, so never mind. She can still be a girl. But she should exist.

Previews for Atlantis: Gira and I shrieked and clung to each other's hands every time they came on. EEEEEEEEEEEEEEE. The "alternate reality" doesn't actually look at all like an evil mirror universe, ALAS, but omfg, I don't care. I am a junkie and want my 'lantis. And even the mention of an alternate reality makes me conjure up evil, sex-crazed versions of the main characters, so that makes it even better. YAYYYYY.

Verdict:

1. I still really want to write mirror!universe Atlantis.

2. I want to watch old-skool SG-1.

3. ... and BSG.

4. ... and TNG.

5. I need a Cameron Mitchell icon.

Oh, God, I'd forgotten her first name. Cameron/Carolyn is going to get confusing to type. I need to consider these things ahead of time! ;)

OMG. The elevator scene! HEE. He totally adjusts his clothes, too!

Yeah, I think the mother's name is probably the reason, though she could always be a Beverly Crusher Widowed Doctor type.

I'd really be okay with a sort of... passing flirtation friend-ship between them, though, so it's all right if she is married (though I doubt she is).

But yay. I could go for this 'ship for prettiness alone.

Sam doesn't seem interested enough for Cam/Sam to me. I mean... she obviously likes him... but it's Sam. She's too comfortable with him for it to be a UST/'ship thing, at least in my books. But there's got to be a reason why they are SO familiar with each other... perhaps an old fling? (But WHEN, omg?)

Spankyyyy! I hope next week's first Lantis ep is not light on Weir... 'cause it looks like both might be. *angsts a bit* But the Spanky!!!!

BILLY/DEE. Did you guys all see what they tried to do there? They tried to break up our ONE RAY OF HOPE on this entire TV show. OMFG. On the upside, this development makes me less opposed to Lee and Kara having sex, because then Lee is less likely to break up my OTP of HOPE.
*cries* They totally are trying to break up Billy/Dee. I was sad! OMG!

But Lee/Kara was pretty this episode and cute while they were hysterical from oxygen deprivation!

*smites Cally* *loves on Boomer*

Me on Roslin: "So, they're gonna keel her off this season already?"

P.S. Sora was returned to the Genii in a scene cut from "The Siege Part II" omg. Liek, dat was part of the negotiations. So, mebbe she r still in Lantis, but for the original script, she was to return to the Genii home world omg.
Little Red: bsg - wet boomer - ehab_itmylittleredgirl on September 17th, 2005 05:10 pm (UTC)
*cries* They totally are trying to break up Billy/Dee. I was sad! OMG!

They'll get over this and their love will be EVEN STRONGER!! *flails and clings* Seriously, Billy and Dee as the RAY OF HOPE is the only thing that makes this show bearable to watch for me with the endless angst, so I hope they keep them together and cute just so that I can still handle it. :)

Lee/Kara... errrrr... this was the first time I thought that maybe they could do sex without it being a horrific train wreck that I wouldn't want to watch. *shrugs*

They're so not killing off Roslin. She's too high-profile an actress. They'll just drag it out as long as possible. /mytheory

OMG REEELLY? about Sora? I am very much of the school of IF I DON'T SEE IT ON TEEVEE, IT DOESN'T COUNT, so I'm going to continue to complain about it and pretend she's on 'lantisplanet still, but I also thought that would've been a good time to at least have a throwaway line about "oh, want Sora back? We've treated her very nicely." GOOD TO KNOW!!

In "Brotherhood" the Genii didn't even seem to CARE about getting Sora back, which is so weird.

If you don't mind spoilers re:to Sheba or not to Sheba, you can read my post today, but this may or may not be a good idea. (btw, learning that the Pegasus was going to show up is what actually caused me to look up spoilers on that one)

Anyway: so my response to the whole weird Jaffa/Ori OTP plot thing was 'well, at least this way there could be civil war and we can STOP WITH THE DAMNED POLITICS crap' (nothing on earth makes me more bored than when Jaffa politics comes up. NOTHING!)

I totally don't remember anything about Orlin. At all. Though the whole 'I still love you' thing from the kid made me go 'ewwwww' (which I understand is the reaction to the initial Orlin, so yeah). But, dude, he DESCENDED for her. The guy like stalks her all over the place and on multiple planes of existence! She totally needs a restraining order *grins*

Oh, and now I have to force you to start watching this new show on CBS called 'Threshold' for it is awesome and amazing and totally worth it.
Little Red: bsg - old-skool CAPES! - liminallizmylittleredgirl on September 17th, 2005 06:40 pm (UTC)
I think I'll pass on those spoilerz, because they caused you GREAT ANGST as I recall, and I'll maintain the hope for as long as possible. :) PEGASUS PEGASUS OMG!

HOW are Jaffa politics so fucking boring? I LOVED Bajoran politics! *flails*

YOU ARE FAR and so I can't show you the Orlin ep. Bummer. But he descended for her in that episode, too.

How would you enforce that kind of restraining order, really? Ask Oma Desala's cronies, I suppose. :)

Happily gleeful that you love Cameron Mitchell! I can't say that Ben Browder is my "tv boyfriend" because, liek, he's not a tv character ...but you get my drift?? Much love and snugginess for the Browder. MUCH love. See icon. So I LOVE when people love him! I want him to be loved and squeed at by the general population.

I saw the second ep of Atlantis last night! The looks Sparky were giving each other over that table of iniquity! So, so....well, defies retelling, unless you use the words "hawt, rawr, and soooooooo doing it." I mean it was TANGIBLE!

My ship radar pinged on Mitchell/Lam, but it's probably waaaay oversensitive. Good to know that's not just me, though. (I predict she's divorced.)

And OMG I LOVE BOOMER AND HER TASTE IN BOYFRIENDS. Also *bounces in anticipation of next week and Michelle Fucking Forbes omg*

You know, now that you've mentioned the mirror!universe Atlantis fic several times, it would be unseemly not to write it. Really, it's a rule I read somewhere.
Little Red: trek - enterprise porn - liminallizmylittleredgirl on September 17th, 2005 06:43 pm (UTC)

You know, now that you've mentioned the mirror!universe Atlantis fic several times, it would be unseemly not to write it.

*evil grin* I want to! I just haven't been able to fit all the pieces together of who's who... my sister was pushing for mirror!Sheyla and made some really good points, so I'm going to have to unravel this a bit. And write my ficathon fic. Eep. *has angst about the mediocrity of my ficathon fic, as it is FOR SOMEONE*

Hallowed are the Ori!

Omg, Lam annoys the fuck out of me, but I'm not opposed to Cam/Lam just for more Mitchell. Preferably NAKED. Yes. (I still think her character would have worked better as Papa General's ex because that way lies less of me wanting to smack her to death.) And dammit, we need clothes adjusting scenes for SPARKY.

Your mirrorverse 'Lantis would be so much BETTER than real mirrorverse 'Lantis just because of all the sex and skimpy clothing and EVILNESS. And dammit, I hate how I'm so pleased at the sister finally acknowledging the Sheppard HAWTNESS that I wouldn't complain if you dropped Sheppard/Teyla (mirror or not) anvils all over the place in your fic. (Grr.) But EEEEEEE to the SPANKY! But er... that Sheppard/Dex really is following you everywhere: "If he dies, I'll kill you." Mwahahahaha.

Omg, Lam annoys the fuck out of me, but I'm not opposed to Cam/Lam just for more Mitchell.

Exactly!

I'm still sulking about the daughter-not-ex-wife thing, too. Because that would've been so rockin'. And I wouldn't have been like "STOP BEING A PETULANT BRAT AND RESPECT YOUR ELDERS", because her bitchiness would've been funnier.

Your mirrorverse 'Lantis would be so much BETTER than real mirrorverse 'Lantis just because of all the sex and skimpy clothing and EVILNESS.

Oh, SO TRUE. Damn this show for not giving us evil slutty mirror versions of our characters!! Hahahahaha, I love how sister is so embarrassed by the Sheppard crush. She'll kill me if she hears I've broadcast it on teh intarweb. ;) But I'm thinking in the mirrorverse that evil!Shep was probably partnered with Lizzie, but tapped a little Teyla on the side (because that sort of thing is okay in teh mirror universe, and Elizabeth's slutting it up, too). And there might need to be mirror!Teyla/Lizzie catfighting or something at some point. Heeeeeeee.

STOP IT WITH THE SHEPPARD/DEX because I'm really starting to find it hot, eep. *laughs anyway*

I love your icon! RoverSpankyWhatever is so utterly kickass. They really are a crack wraith-killing team.

he could have just been having an "ONLY YOU CAN STOP SEXUAL HARRASSMENT IN THE WORKPLACE!"

Nononono! It's: "Sexual Harassment. Not in my Air Force!" I kid you not. I have not been tortured every commercial break by these silly AFN spots to not know the proper propaganda. (Although my favorite, by far, is the Army one with hell freezing over. It goes something like "Sexual harassment is bad. Our Army doesn't tolerate it. Ever. In other words, " cue hell freezing over graphics "This'll happen before we tolerate it." Then the screen flashes through "Not in the Army." "Not in my Army." "Not in our Army.")

The phrase "Hallowed are the Ori!" is starting to bug me so much that I think I want to start saying it at random moments in my real life.

You totally should. I'll do it to, then we can be "friends in the path of Origin" and I can freak out my real friends even more. (I was worried about ever accomplishing that again after they discovered that I keep a Micro-Machines figurine of Riker in my backpack.)

Love Hallowed are the Ori,

I am sad they do not air those PSAs around me.

Man, I love your posts. :-D

Random thoughts... I've been assuming Dr. Lam uses her mom's name. Something in the vibe between her and Landry is giving me the hunch that she didn't grow up with him around, and I rather suspect mom and dad weren't married at all. But then, I've lost track now of how much of my Theory of the Origins of Carolyn Lam has spun entirely out of her name, the fact that Lexa is of mixed Caucasian/Asian extraction, and the fact that she's the right age to be a Vietnam baby. So in my head I'm assuming she is until it's demonstrated other wise, and other stuff -- i.e. mom and dad never actually being married, and her not meeting dad until she was older -- I think comes more from that than anything. And then I look at the way he is with her and think "Dude, trying to play catchup with a grown kid who doesn't particularly want any part of it must be the PITS," and keep spinning from there. It's actually fairly entertaining, even though I'm probably totally wrong.

Also, for no particular reason, I don't get the sense that she's married.

And OMGKANE!!!! I flipped. And I'm of two minds as to whether there should be a Sheba. She's sort of semi-superfluous with the existing fully-gender-integrated military of New Skool BSG, but there is that whole angle of "OMG my daddy mommy is the BESTEST COMMANDER EVAR!!!" that could be interesting to explore. Could be especially cool to see how the Apollo-Sheba dynamic would play out with the new editions.

Also, very glad not to be the only one going "Where the heck is Six?" 'Cause dude, if there was ever a time she should have been frakking with Baltar's head and getting in the way of his being USEFUL FOR A CHANGE, this was it. Last time she saw her, she pretty much said she was taking her ball and going home. Looks like maybe that'll last longer than I thought it would...

WHERE THE FUCK IS SORA!?!??

Er...somewhere in a cell in Atlantis? Which, y'know, valid question. Except for the part where that show wasn't on this week. ;-}

Man, I love your posts. :-D

OMG yay!! That was really awesome to hear. :) Because I always feel weird just flailingly rambling about episodes when other people have Nice Thought Out Posts, so I am glad it is joy-inducing to someone other than me. :)

I'm with you on her using her mom's name, but since Landry did ask "How's your mom?" and she was all "Why don't you CALL HER?" I'm not sure that it really was a Vietnam baby thing. Hrm. Something to think about, though.

KAAAAAAANE!! And I'm sure they could find a place for Sheba. Because having someone merge with the fleet who used to be on the Pegasus could be useful even if she/he doesn't want to do sex with Apollo.

... is it horrible of me to have just had a new-skool!Starbuck/Cassiopeia plot bunny go through my head? Hrm.

Seriously, where IS Six!? And yes, I remember her not wanting to play anymore, but she was around in the Xena episode... so... huh. I have no idea.

I just always have to ask about Sora. Always. :) I'll still be screaming about this in (godwilling) season 7, I swear.

I saw the preview and shouted RO!!!!!!!

OMG. So excited. She ROCKED as Miranda Zero in the Global Frequency pilot, and I am SOOOOOOOOOO excited to see her here.

Also, I'm kinda a bigger fan of Caprica Sharon than Galactica Sharon. I think it's how she accepts her existence as a Cylon more than GS. Really, in some ways, I see them as two totally different characters, like twin sisters, rather than an evolution of a single character, which I kinda like.

Also, The Apollo/Dee moment - oh shit. They're totally going to bring that back to fuck with us later. Damnit!

Then again, Apollo needs to fall a bit from his perch. I think it will be good for him.

Lastly, NEXT WEEK IS THE FINALE?!?!?! WTF? Noooooooooo! I wanted it to go on all year! *sigh* Damnit.

RO!!!!!

Really, in some ways, I see them as two totally different characters, like twin sisters, rather than an evolution of a single character, which I kinda like.

Me too. Which is why I miss my galactica!Sharon!! *criz and tears hair* I really loved them both. Galactica!Sharon requires a great deal more pity, though, in the final account. Her life just suuuucks. Caprica!Sharon, because she's so much more in control, is a lot more about kicking ass and taking names. So they're both awesome. *stomps foot*

Also, The Apollo/Dee moment - oh shit. They're totally going to bring that back to fuck with us later.

THEY HAD BETTER NOT.

You know what? I wasn't going to write Battlestar Galactica fic. I thought I was getting over this show! And now I've been sucked back in and have had two plot ideas in two days. *shakes fist at TV show*

Next week is the summer finale. It'll come back again sometime winter or spring. *shrugs*

I LOVE Teyla. I didn't love her at the beginning, actually, but omg, as time went on -- SO MUCH LOVE!! And Lizzie was rather iffy in the first few episodes, I still think. I already loved her from her transition spot on SG-1, so I didn't mind, but in rewatching I can see why people didn't fall for her right away. BUT OMG EVERYONE ROCKS SO MUCH. *flails with joy*
