Well ok. I knew I wasn't going to like it much, what with no Rodney, no Teyla, no Ronon and Joe Mallozzi writing it, but I wanted to like it. It's SGA after all. It  has John Sheppard.

I'm going to gloss over the constant splitting up "to cover more ground" and running away from main group and protection smack into danger, because that is a must-do in horror. No. What I really didn't like, was:

So for now, Whispers is at the bottom of the S5 heap, where I hope it will stay. If this is the last season, I want all awesome episodes.

SciFi is fucking insane. FUCKING. INSANE.

The trade magazine also reported that the show will be set on board a previously unmanned ship called the Destiny, and will involve more space-based action than its predecessors. "Unable to return to Earth, the crew must fend for themselves aboard the ship, which has a preprogrammed mission taking them to the far reaches of the universe," the magazine said.


The new series will also be aimed at a slightly younger audience, SCI FI president Dave Howe said.

To toss SGA and then replace it with yet another generic SciFi show about a group of people on a freaking space ship on a mission-with-no-end, like Farscape, like Firefly, like Startrek One thru Gazillion, like Galactica, like Red Dwarf, like every Tom, Dick and Harry SciFi show that has ever been aired!  Unbelievable.

Listen, producers, you had something with SGA! When you put your teenage cast on board of a space ship, the only thing your audience gets is badly lit corridors, meeting rooms and a glimpse of black, cheerless deep space through tiny little windows! Which might make for cost effective sets, but it is CRAP to look at!

I want stained glass windows! I want ocean, I want a beautiful city, I want whales, I want off world visits! I WANT MY TEAM!

Wow. Sad news.

I was sort of expecting it after Joe Mallozzi's not-so-subtle hints, but it still comes as a shock. I feel bad for the cast; David Hewlett called the high ratings for Search & Rescue fuel for season 6, so he and the rest of the cast must have really hoped for one more season. 

Man, I'm depressed!

This was actually going to be a happy post telling y'all about my wonderful week in Var and the Cote d'Azur, but since MGM and Joe M. killed my mood and I don't have photos yet, I'll make the post next week. It was glorious though: six days of beautiful weather, great food and no internet. 

Oh, show. *sigh*

In which I'm not a hundred percent positive. But I've watched it three times now and it does get better with each viewing.

Whines and complaints )

But also squee because I love my show )

It's been a while and I promised myself I would post more.

ETA: somewhat spoilery for S5.

Oh.. god. squee.

itty bitty spoilers, nothing we didn't know already )

ETA: slight spoilers in the comments.

ETA2: big fat spoilers in the comments. Yep. Entire sentences lifted ad verbatim from the episode. (Well, one anyway.)

trystings: (SPN Sam)
Okay, so I admit, I never watched the first one and a half season of Supernatural and after seeing a couple of episodes of season 3 I decided I wasn't going to, but then two weeks ago my tv-buddy gave me a pile of DVD's including SPN and guys! .... I am all a-flutter!

Yes, yes! I know, there are issues with season 3, but I don't care right now. There are no issues with Season One. I love season one. Season One. Is. Awesome.


And you know, maybe in season 4 the show will get a handle on the women/blacks/gays molestation angle and all will be well slightly better in TV land.

*has high but unfounded hopes* And a Sammy icon!

Busy, busy week...

- NCIS Finale (Yes, I still have mucho mucho love for NCIS. Mucho).
- Bones [ETA: check and omg!]
- second half of S1 of Life on Mars. Alas, Sam is starting to grow on me, but I will NOT,
repeat NOT, read LoM fanfic (*insert Scarlett with carrot*) as I have no spare time left.
- episode 1.03 of Tru Calling for obvious reasons (borrowed the whole season from a coworker
and it's time I give them back)
- and, sadly, started reading SPN fanfic, which, also sadly, has prompted me to (re)start
watching this show, spurred on by same coworker who is dying to discuss the finale. Dammit.

A/N. I'm very, very late with my weekly rec for [ profile] stargateficrec for which I have the perfect friendship fic, but it might be too subtexty and slashy for some and has character death. *sigh* A Hundred Words for Snow by Icantfollow. Y/Y?

But completely annoying: ad banners that obliterate half the screen. Ghosthunters!

Seriously SciFi. Very counterproductive.

I got mail! MAIL!!!  I love mail, especially mail made of awesome and SGA fanlove. So, a couple of weeks ago [personal profile] sholio  posted  THIS wonderful Valentine Cardathon made of love and chocolate chip cookies and win and when I read it,  I couldn't resist and said YES!!!  Please! John to Rodney! (Or Rodney to John! Or Chuck to Kavanagh, because, whatever, it will be great). And it is. It's hilarious and so Rodney and made my day.

The card simply screams Rodney! I love it!

Oh boooooooys!!! *hearts them both*

(ETA: that I got the card in time for Valentine, but it took me this long to figure out how to post it. Digitally challenged ain't no picnic.)

OH SHOOOOOOW. So much love. My cup runneth over.

Loved this episode. 
Loved it. )

[personal profile] naye said it all. And she's got screencaps! Screencaps galore. Go check it out!

trystings: (Default)

Darn, darn, darn, I missed it (which doesn't stop me from reading every review and tagfic, so no worries about spoilering me, go ahead, no shame here). But really, I'm gonna resort to illegal means, I don't think I can wait till Friday. 


I watched it! And I loved it! LOVED IT! Hewlett, you're awesome. You are! And Gero, you are too! *loves*
