very quick thoughts. okay, just regular-sized thoughts.  
No, really. Very quick. Promise! ... Dammit. I do try.

Firefly: Fun! Yay. I was more entertained by this one than the two-hour pilot, but was glad I saw the other one first. I'm warming up to the captain, but have to warm more before I'm totally sold. Kaylee is less annoying than she was in the pilot

SG-1: I like Daniel again!! It is, okay, vaguely annoying that the season continues to ride the one-trick pony named "Vala Is A Lot Of Trouble," but it's FUN and I'm enjoying it. Yay! Most of the episodes this season haven't held up quite as well in the second viewing, but the first one was a total blast. :) Also, I maintain that Dr. Lam is Landry's ex-wife for about a billion reasons, but mostly because I feel like it, YAY. besyd agrees with me that the spoilers are just WRONG, so there.

Tammy: "I'm really getting the ex-wife vibe here."
Me: "ME TOO!!!"
Tammy: "Maybe they're just waiting to see how it plays out on-screen before they decide?"
Me: "... okay, that's a disturbing thought."

Atlantis: Aaaaaaaaaaaa!! Once I got over my initial desire to bury my head in the couch and shriek, this was, er... FUN! (my word of the day, it seems) And OMG. TEYLA/RONON IS PORN IN SPACE. OMG. GOD. *cannot... think... over... porn* And so much Sparky joy!! Eeeee! LOVE LOVE LOVE the way their relationship keeps developing (I mean friendly professional relationship! I do!), and how they have adopted the Sam/Jack Proximity Battery system of being as physically close to each other as possible most of the time. And everybody is so damned cute, and all kinds of pairings got their moment of GLORY, and it was joy. Occasionally mortifying joy, but the Poor Man's Kate Hudson is still love.

BSG: NO FUN AT ALL. Okay, I lied. Tyrol/Boomer was my first OTP for this series, loved it from the miniseries, and it's part of why I tuned back in for the series proper. LOVE the scenes between them SO fucking hardcore, and they got a wonderful sendoff, I guess, but that doesn't take away the fact that THEY KILLED MY FAVORITE CHARACTER, DAMMIT. And Cally did it! I've never liked her, really. I mean, never really *disliked* her, but the rest of the internet looooooooooooves her, and I just kinda think of her as being there. NOW I have a reason to hate her. So, HATE. HATE HATE HATE. NOOO BOOMER NOOOOOO!! BRING BACK BOOMER NOW, KTHANX. They can fix her! And experiment on her! GAH. I might have to watch "Water" or something this weekend and rage about the unfairness of it all. If anyone finds Tyrol/Boomer fic anywhere, send it my way? (Oh, man, if THIS sucks me into the fandom, I WILL HATE IT ALL THE MORE.)

Well, unless Cally's a Cylon who eliminated Boomer before she could be experimented on and stuff. That would be okay, I guess. EXCEPT THAT SHE IS STILL DEAD AND TYROL WILL HAVE LESS ANGST AND LOVE AND STUFF.

On the upside: PYRAMID! From old-skool Galactica! And old-skool Apollo IN LEATHER!

On the weird side: Tyrol still looks just. like. my ex-boyfriend.
feel: bouncybouncy
hear: a medley of James Taylor and Salt n' Peppa in my head. ACK.

OMG OMG OMG you have to write Teyla/Ronon Porn In Space. Pleasepleasepleasepleaseplease???
Little Red: trek - enterprise porn - liminallizmylittleredgirl on August 6th, 2005 06:15 am (UTC)
I don't know if I can! I don't think I've ever written straight porn without omgfeelingz involved and... I'm not sure yet if there is anything to Teyla/Ronon except sex. Very hot sex. Verrryyyyyy... um... yes.

Ooooh, sounds like a challenge.

Well, unless Cally's a Cylon who eliminated Boomer before she could be experimented on and stuff.

That was SOOOOO my reaction! She is she is she is! It's so OBVIOUS now! I mean, Crashdown was going to SHOOT HER for not playing along with the plan to attack the Cylons in "Fragged," while everyone else was like, "I HATE this, but I guess I'll go along with it." And I think it means something that Baltar's the one who shot Crashdown, and that Six was so proud later. Like "You just saved my sister" or something.

And then, Cally, who seemed so squeamish last week and was just trying to pay for dental school (which I think is so damn cute, omg) and didn't want to actually do the whole fighting thing, shoots someone? Ok, yeah, she's totally got the hots for Tyrol, and she's a little pissed that Boomer screwed him (and in this instance, I mean it figuratively), but STILL. Who'd have thunk?

She was totally just doing it to stop the tests. Such a Cylon, I tell you.

Also, I swear I am going to lie awake tonight trying to figure out all eight of the Cylons in the fleet.

...and I think I'm starting to get addicted to Atlantis. I promised myself I wouldn't. But you write fun fanfic, and post links to other fun fanfics, and it is therefore your fault. And I blame Friday in general for perfectly accommodating my need for sci-fi and CSI. I practically HAVE to watch Atlantis at some point, so as not to interrupt the flow.

Will stop defending newfound obsessions in lj comments now. Peace.
Little Red: bsg - wet boomer - ehab_itmylittleredgirl on August 6th, 2005 06:40 am (UTC)
I'm pretty sure the eight-cylons thing was just a totally random answer ("Ten... nine..." "EIGHT!") out of desperation. Boomer really doesn't know anything about the Cylons when she's not in Cylon-mode. (Er... well, maybe, because she did remember some things about the Cylon horseshoe-ship of Starbuck's.)

I think the "eight!" was just a random answer, and that it satisfied Baltar because... well, because he really doesn't CARE how many Cylons are in the fleet, and only seemed to want to know if Cylons are actually capable of love.

Maybe? Thoughts?

(DAMMIT! I swore I wasn't going to get into this fandom. It's just too much of a mess and way too damned depressing for me to try and make sense of things and write fic and aaaaaargh!) <-- does that make us even? *grins* 'lantis! lantis! lantis!!!

Cally is SO NOT FORGIVEN. I don't care how much she cries. *GLARES AT HER*

Gaeta is such a cylon, and it's scaring the hell out of me. I can't deal with any scene with him in it, because he is SUCH A CYLON, EEK, and it's making me doubt absolutely everything he says and does.
annie_tait on August 6th, 2005 05:22 pm (UTC)
So, you're saying I lost sleep over a guess? Poo.

I think you're right though, about WHY Baltar did what he did. I'm sure that if he really wanted a number, Six would have given it to him. But then after he saw Boomer all frantic and crap-he's-going-to-dieeee! over Tyrol, he was like, Oh. Maybe Number Six DOES love me, because he's always seemed kind of "Yeah, right" when she says she does, because she's a little creepy about it.

And I DO NOT BUY INTO Gaeta as a Cylon! Everyone else in the world sees it, and I just don't believe it. Maybe it's because I'm picturing him with yellow eyes and fretting about the destruction of his lovely new planet.

But NO! I will not believe it until he kills the whole fleet and then has sex so his back does that glowy thing (because that's the REAL way to detect a Cylon) and even then I'll probably need more proof. *pets him*

...I wouldn't be surprised to find out Billy is, though.
Little Red: bsg - wet boomer - ehab_itmylittleredgirl on August 6th, 2005 05:49 pm (UTC)

Billy and Dualla are OFF-LIMITS for speculation. COMPLETELY. They are the ONE shred of possible hope that exists in this series, and, seriously, if that is taken away from me, then I will break into SAD LITTLE FANGIRL PIECES, and nobody wants that.

I'd rather not think Gaeta is a cylon, either. I'll try to take your viewpoint here. *fears him anyway*

(because that's the REAL way to detect a Cylon)

YES! They will make lots of beds with mirrored canopies and demand that everyone in the 'fleet have COMPULSORY SEX! LIE BACK AND THINK OF THE COLONIES!
annie_tait on August 6th, 2005 05:57 pm (UTC)
If they both are, is that ok?

And someone needs to let Gaius in on this new method of Cylon detection. Because then he'll have a nervous breakdown ("I stressed about all those blood samples when I could have been getting laid by *real people*?!") followed immediately by a predatory need to sex all of humanity.

Starbuck can check for boy-Cylons because every time she has screentime with anything-- and I say ANYTHING-- I squee. She needs to be a whore and then I will be really, REALLY in love with this show.
Little Red: bsg - starbuck girl - astropoetmylittleredgirl on August 6th, 2005 06:00 pm (UTC)
Where the hell is Casseiopeia when we need her!?

And, heh. I'm actually rather "meh" on Starbuck on the whole, though she definitely has her moments... but I agree that she should be sexing EVERYTHING. I think she agrees with you, too. :)
Phrenitis: no vplphrenitis on August 6th, 2005 06:36 am (UTC)
Also, I maintain that Dr. Lam is Landry's ex-wife for about a billion reasons

*agrees!* Knew the spoilers but then got all confuzzled when you mentioned the ex-wife thing eons ago, so thought perhaps the spoilers were changed. And now it just works. I believe!


They're so going to be doing it before we ever get confirmation of Sparky briefing room table sex. Eyefuckage and nekkid chest in episode one, physical combat and teh splits on teh bed in episode two... dude.
Katekatejaneway on August 6th, 2005 07:38 am (UTC)
See I think Dr. Lam is Landry's daughter.

AND I think Kali IS a Cyclon. It just seems right that she killed Boomer, knowing that Boomer would reveal things (8 Cyclons!) and that she could use the Tyrol!sadness to back it up.

She KNEW Tyrol wasn't a Cyclon, and she displayed very out of character strength and hatred.

you should know my favorite lady on firefly is river
Little Red: ethermylittleredgirl on August 6th, 2005 05:50 pm (UTC)
I have been told that River is aaaaaawesome by many. (Jarrett, of course, fangirls Kaylee still, I believe). I'm keeping an eye on her and her crazy self. :)

Yay! I'm finally watching Firefly!
Matt1969matt1969 on August 6th, 2005 01:33 pm (UTC)
We don't watch BSG, but we had fun watching the other shows. We'd never seen Firefly first time around, but we're enjoying it now. And we just cracked up over the wild goose chase in SG-1.
Pooh: SGA - Sparky sinful (by ethelinesherman)mspooh on August 6th, 2005 02:41 pm (UTC)
Hmm... is there a way to make "Teyla/Ronon" into a shortcut key on the keyboard so I can just paste it wherever I need it? I feel we'll be typing that up A LOT.

Oh, and *SHRIEK!* Hmm... or *PANT!* No, wait, that second one reminds me too much of Pants! Must experiment with other "sounds."

qwirky on August 6th, 2005 07:24 pm (UTC)
SG-1 just seems to be, yeah, relying on the one-trick pony of Vala being trouble. It's fun but irritating, and I just want more of an actual plot than filler episodes.

*snuggles Sparky and pets Ronon/Teyla*

*huggles you for Boomer death and kills Cally* Hrm. I actually never really adored Cally either. She was all right and had her cool moments, but I never adored her. This episode... I just hated her from the beginning. I don't like Gaius either, but she was SUCH A BITCH to him, and I was all, "WTF? HE SAVED YOUR LIFE, YOU INGRATE." And then she killed Boomer, and I was "ARGH. HATE."

*cligns to you*
