kaydeefalls: kim&jeremy&dana running sports night (control room)
I'm bored. I mean, I am eternally grateful that for a short space of time I have had ACTUAL WEEKENDS, and I'm sure I'll be kicking myself this time next week when I realize yup, they're going away again for another few months. But I have no particular fannish projects holding my attention at the moment (still in post-Big Bang slump, though it still needs another round of editing once my betas have had a chance to slog through it) and nothing much to DO. I've watched another disc of True Blood, which finishes the first season. There are other shows I'm vaguely interested in, but none enough to seek out for download. And while I would love to curl up with my laptop and read good fic, I'm still in a Jack/Ianto frame of mind and I've spent the past month rereading just about every halfway decent fic for the pairing, and I want to read NEW fic. But that fandom's taken a bit of a hit since CoE, and even the CoE fix-it phase of fandom seems to have died down, at least for the moment.

And there is no new Doctor Who today. TRAGIC.

So instead I'll knock out a few more of the TV meme, since I am terminally incapable of posting on anything resembling a regular basis.

Day 19 - Best TV show cast

I freaking LOVE ensemble shows. TEAMS! The biggest downfall of Doctor Who, for my particular tastes, is that it focuses too tightly on the Doctor and the Companion. This is why I get so bloody excited about multiple companions, like Nine & Rose & Jack, or Eleven & Amy & Rory, and why for all of the many pitfalls of "Journey's End", I will love it forever for giving us all of those awesome people flying the TARDIS together. The TEAM! element of Torchwood is vastly more important to me than my shipping Jack/Ianto, and my biggest problem with CoE. But I digress, clearly. So: Whoniverse, basically out for this one.

THERE ARE SO MANY GOOD ENSEMBLE SHOWS, guys! I clearly cannot pick just one! Here, have a celebratory picspam of AWESOME TEAMS BEING AWESOME. ensembles FTW! )

Day 20 - Favorite kiss

I was going to say, there is no way I can narrow this down. And then maybe try to picspam you again. Because there's Mulder/Scully in "Millennium", and Nine/Rose in "Parting of the Ways", and Simon/Kaylee MAKING THE FUCK OUT FINALLY in "Serenity" (yes I know that's the movie, but it's just an extension of the show and it totally counts), and Stuart/Vince at Vince's birthday party, and and and...

But no. Look, I have a ship for every show, and every kiss is awesome. But I do play favorites occasionally. yeah, that one. )

Look, this is the scene that made me start watching the Whoniverse as a whole. I had seen nothing, and then I saw this scene on YouTube, and then I downloaded the first episode of new!Who and went for it in order to eventually see this in context. That is one damn important kiss in my fannish life.

Also, NNGK.

Day 21 - Favorite ship


Picspams take a freaking long time. I'm going to be lazy now.

Torchwood - Jack/Ianto. Doctor Who - Doctor/Rose, Amy/Rory(/Doctor). West Wing - CJ/Danny. Firefly - Zoe/Wash. QAF UK - Vince/Stuart. X-Files - Mulder/Scully. All of these are ships for which I will trawl the internet for quite literally weeks or months on end, to varying degrees of success. Every show has its own ship, but those are the ones that are still my bulletproof kinks. I am not shippy to the exclusion of other pairings, nor to the point of hating any pairings involving just one of my ship. But yeah.

Day 22 - Favorite series finale

...hmm. Most series tend to drift by the end; there are very few series finales that leave me satisfied. I'm definitely not counting miniseries here, because they're written to be one complete story -- otherwise "Points" for Band of Brothers would be an automatic win.

Toss-up: "West Wing" ended VERY well, given how long the show ran; the final episode is a bit sentimental, but god knows it earned it. And I love love LOVE Josh in the Oval Office with Santos -- "What's next?" BIG SPARKLY HEARTS.

But also? Queer as Folk UK. Now there was one show Russell T Davies showed out with style. Everyone gets their own freaking awesome epilogue -- Hazel gets married (for tax reasons)! Bernard becomes a porn baron! Nathan becomes king of the world! -- and, most importantly: There are many rumours about Stuart and Vince -- all of them true. <3 <3 <3 <3 <3

To complement yesterday's picspam:

Day 15 - Favorite female character

THIS WAS EVEN HARDER TO NARROW DOWN THAN BOYS. Shows: BSG - Doctor Who - Firefly - HIMYM - Life - Merlin - QAF UK - Sports Night - Torchwood - True Blood - West Wing - X-Files.

kaydeefalls: s1ep1 ianto looks like he's twelve, jfc (ianto looks so goddamn young)
What I planned to do this evening: finish the last remaining scenes in my Big Bang fic. (Seriously, there are, like, three scenes I still haven't properly written. And I have failed to finish them ALL WEEK.)

What I did instead: TV MEME!

This is not a big picspam, but I couldn't resist. Shows: Band of Brothers - BSG - Doctor Who - Dollhouse - Firefly - HIMYM - QAF UK - Sports Night - Torchwood - True Blood - West Wing - X-Files.

Day 14 - Favorite male character

Even narrowing it down to one per show -- and not including ALL of the shows I like -- THIS WAS HARD.

kaydeefalls: sharon valerii sez IM IN UR PHYSIOLOGY, SEDUCIN UR HUMANS (seducin ur humans)
So then I fell asleep at 7:15pm and didn't wake up until my alarm went off at 6:30am.

Apparently I needed that.

Day 10 - A show you thought you wouldn't like but ended up loving

Hmmm. I don't watch all that much TV, and if there's a show I'm not interested in, I generally just...don't watch it. I'm sure there must have been something I was conned into watching, but I can't think of it off the top of my head. There are shows I thought I'd hate and wound up not minding, but that's not quite the same.

So I'll go with: The West Wing. Not because I thought it would be a bad show. But I resisted watching it for years and years because I was such a huge fan of Aaron Sorkin's first show, Sports Night, which I watched religiously as it aired. And then that show was nearly canceled, but another network said they'd pick it up if Sorkin stayed on board -- which he didn't, because he was jumping ship to start West Wing. So Sports Night ended after only two brilliant seasons. Yeah, I felt kind of bitter about that. But eventually I let go of my prejudices, and it is truly fabulous.

OH WAIT. Having written that, I suddenly remember: Battlestar Galactica, the new version. I didn't think I'd like it and I didn't want to like it, but my college boyfriend got obsessed with it around the end of the 3rd season and made me sit through the mini-series. Which I fell for pretty hard in spite of myself, and wound up mainlining all three seasons over the course of, like, a month. Despite some of the disappointments of the last season in particular, that show had a DAMN good run. It was smart, had a fantastic ensemble cast, and posed really hard, uncomfortable, relevant questions. And it was the master of twists and shocking reveals. My only issue is that it's not a show I like rewatching much, only because the overall tone and outlook is so very bleak. BSG: not afraid of killing off characters you love. LOTS AND LOTS OF THEM.

Finally watched the BSG finale. Yes, it is 4:30am.

I am beyond incoherent right now, partly due to the 4:30am thing, but...my show is over. My SHOW is OVER.

couple of brief spoilers )

RIP Bruno Gianelli Ron Silver. Aw, man.

On a similar note, I think it's time to start a deadpool for BSG. Because we know this finale is gonna be a bloodbath, if the rest of the show is any indication. Note: DO NOT FRAKKING SPOIL ME. This is purely speculative.

Poll behind cut. Vague general spoilers for season 4. )

The latest BSG? I have a new favorite episode. Oh, my gods, that was so frakking good.

I...wow. WOW. This show is going out in some serious style, guys. I don't even have the words for how much I loved that episode.

I've been avoiding LJ since Friday night to remain completely spoiler-free, which is in retrospect kind of amusing, since that episode contained no real action to speak of that I could've been spoiled for. But that was a beautiful piece of storytelling right there. Glorious. I'm going to miss this show so much.

So, yeah, for a wacky change, the UK got the new BSG before the US. But that's cool, because it's online already.

I have exactly one thing to say: LELAND.

I will be snickering about this for, like, a week at least.


Okay, and one vaguely spoilery remark: very minor spoiler )


May. 10th, 2008 08:45 am
kaydeefalls: sharon valerii sez IM IN UR PHYSIOLOGY, SEDUCIN UR HUMANS (seducin ur humans)
Um, just started watching the latest BSG. spoilers )
kaydeefalls: blank with text: "white. a blank page or canvas. so many possibilities..." (human!sharon)
I held off watching last week's BSG for a while, because I didn't have much time for these things and I'd heard mostly negative things about it. But you know what? I really shouldn't get all nattered about other people's reactions, because it's pretty much a given that I will enjoy this show no matter what. Sure, some episodes are better than others, and some episodes, in retrospect, aren't all that great, and this wasn't one of the OMGFANTASTIC ones, but it had plenty of Helo and Sharon and Kara and Chief, and I'm kinda liking Baltar for some bizarre reason, so I'm good.

I just like this show a whole lot. And sure, I could turn on the super-analytical part of my brain, and pick it apart, and bemoan all its flaws, but that would just harsh my squee, and I enjoy my squee very, very much. Like Helo! Helo made me flail a lot in this episode. That was nifty.

kaydeefalls: The Last Unicorn by Samantha Darko (i write the bestest stories)
It's been a very long couple of days. I got three hours of sleep last night before having to haul myself out of bed for an eight-hour shift house managing, and then I got distracted by a Borders on my way home for a while. I'm finally now checking my flist for the first time today, and realize, hey! Remix reveal!

So, yes. I am responsible for Staging (Rebel Without a Cause), a remix of [livejournal.com profile] thedeadparrot's most excellent fic Stage Five. I must have spent DAYS reading and rereading her House fics for something I could remix without making an utter ass of myself, and I kept coming back to that one, so. I'm not good at remixing, but I'm a lot happier with this remix than I usually am, so that's good.

Also! I should have flailed about this earlier, but remixes were posted while I was doing Passover, and it just slipped past. [livejournal.com profile] rian219 remixed my fic Logical Deduction as Gravitation (The Logical Conclusion Remix), and it is TWELVE THOUSAND KINDS OF AWESOME. She took my silly crack-addled Sirius!fic and made it aching and funny and brilliant and REMUS, and I am kind of in love. If you read this, rian, THANK YOU.

I can has sleep now?

latest BSG episode )
kaydeefalls: sharon valerii sez IM IN UR PHYSIOLOGY, SEDUCIN UR HUMANS (seducin ur humans)
I really like TWOP's recaplet of "Six of One". Specifically, I nearly did a spit take at: this spoilertastic comment )

yeah, so.

Apr. 12th, 2008 12:57 pm
kaydeefalls: blank with text: "white. a blank page or canvas. so many possibilities..." (kara/lee)
I'd like to write a coherent review of "Six of One", because there was a lot of interesting stuff going on in there. But I just kind of exploded from the Kara/Lee love, so not so much with the coherence.



Apr. 5th, 2008 09:26 am
kaydeefalls: blank with text: "white. a blank page or canvas. so many possibilities..." (sharon/tyrol)
I, um. BSG.


Unspoilery reactions: Can I just reiterate how much I love the Chief, incidentally? Because he's not all flashy like Kara (whom I also adore, of course), and not all sexy like Lee or Helo, but still. LOVE. I even loved Anders this episode, which, usually, he's a decent guy, but he doesn't do it for me, but oh my goodness ANDERS.

Too much Baltar, not enough Sharon. But that's usually the case. At least I had a genuine moment of almost-liking Baltar for a second there. Also, not enough Roslin, oddly enough, but I have a feeling we'll get some awesome Roslin moments next episode, if that cliffhanger is anything to go by.

Also? It is so, so awesome to have more of this show now. Oh, BSG, how I love thee. I literally flailed my way through that entire episode.

Okay, now I need to go to the gym, then shower and go house manage for a few hours, then straight from there to the airport to go to D.C. Catch you on the flip side.

The only thing more fun than falling in love with a new fandom is introducing new people to a fandom you already love.

Oh, Battlestar Galactica.

It's also fun for me to rewatch the series from the beginning, now that I've become a Helo/Sharon shipper. Although it does remind me with great sadness of why I also love Sharon/Chief so very very much. And incidentally, major S3 finale spoiler alert )
kaydeefalls: sharon valerii sez IM IN UR PHYSIOLOGY, SEDUCIN UR HUMANS (seducin ur humans)
Gods, the BSG S3 finale is so frakking good. Gah. I'd already been spoiled for the last five minutes or so (when all I'd seen at the time was the miniseries), but that almost made it better, because I've gotten to watch it all come together. They've had hints peppered throughout the entire season for this, and it's been really delightful seeing the pieces coalesce. Sometimes, being spoiled actually makes the experience more fun. For me, anyway.

So...S4 starts when?


Oct. 7th, 2007 10:30 pm
kaydeefalls: sharon valerii sez IM IN UR PHYSIOLOGY, SEDUCIN UR HUMANS (seducin ur humans)
My god, it's spot-the-fandom-crossover day for me and BSG. I've been powering through the last handful of episodes of S3, and we've had Senator Kelly (X-men) as an evil doctor and now Badger (Firefly) as a sleazy lawyer. I'm in all kinds of happy fandom places right now.

ETA: and Laurio from X2, the guard who has too much iron in his blood. Sci-fi has the smallest pool of actors ever, I swear. How many X-Files actors wound up in Supernatural or Stargate: Atlantis episodes? Badger did an ep of X-Files too, come to think of it...
