My little shows

Promo Pics for SPN Season 2.02? Yay, I know excatly what kind of fanfic came alive there. *headdesk* Man, do writers have lists with stereotypes for characters and storylines somewhere they just cross off? Bah.

So, in other news I want to talk about...leadership. Or make that Stargate Atlantis. :)

I`ve been making my way through the finale episodes of Season 2 and something came to me. Humans are not only incredibly clumsy (wherever we go in the galaxy, we make matters worse) but also

Coup D`Etat
The Genii had this elaborate plan, predicting the responses of Team Atlantis to a T and it worked out beautifully. It was a double cross-cross. And our guys stumbled in it like they always do.
Awww, and Major Lorne`s Team got kidnapped for a change. I always found it hilarious how his team always finished their mission flawlessly and when they got back they had to go and rescue Sheppard`s team which had managed to screw up AGAIN. Poor Lorne, the unsung hero of Atlantis.

Also cute how Ronon was miffed he didn`t get a "Wanted" glossy pictures all of his own. Btw, nice printing job downtrodden people of the Pegasus Galaxy.


and

Michael
Awww, Trip, the only character in Enterprise I truly loved. Maybe it wwas because of the actor but I really sympathized with the character here. He had no idea why he was met with such distrust and open hostility.
So finally the humans concoct a somewhat elaborate plan and not only does it backfire spectacularly, AGAIN, but it is also majorly cruel.
Wow, clumsy, stupid and mean. Are we sure, we`re the heroes here? *g*

Also again the women managed to be quite civil and warm which was kind of a biggie in their plan while the man went cave-man. Sheppard toed the line mostly but they should have sent Ronon away if he couldn`t hack it. Oh, and McKay would have tipped the guy off with his weirdness but then maybe he kinda got that that was just McKay being McKay. ;)


Am also making my way through BSG Season 2. And apart from a bumpy ride there in the middle of it, I`m still loving it.
Though Black Market was without a doubt a bottom feeder. Yikes.
And I wasn`t too sympathetic in Scar because I`m not as madly in love with Starbuck as the writers seem to be and I never bought the Anders thing for a second. So yeah, that was bad.

You know, I WAS happy my fanfic came alive but if that means ALL fanfic will come alive now...

Exactly, if the episode was a fanfic summary, I would happily click away. :(

I'm actually considering not to watch...

I watched Dawson`s Creek, I watched Smallville, I watched fucking Devour and even the cringeworthy Kimono dancing for Jensen, I will watch this. And I will grumble and cry. :(

See, I didn't even watch Devour, and I gave up on SV...

He is so very, very pretty in Devour. And minn-numbingly beautiful in SV.

The only thing I`m missing right now is Still Life, the ominous pilot.

Love, why didn't you give me a shout? I have that pilot!

He's he's pretty in SV but the season is too bad, plus, I hate to see what they made of his character.

Uhm, shout. *g* I really would like to check it out.

SV and ret-conning. But then as a Lana love interest, I didn`t expect anything else. *headdesk*

Btw, I`d like to send you the first chunk of my chapter 3 because the story developed differently from what I had imagined and I have no idea if this gels at all with what came before. So, if it`s boring or stupid I need to change course quickly.

Sure, no prob. Quality isn't that great unfortunately but awwww, he's so cute in it :-)

See I didn't expect him to be Mister Three Dimensional, but to me, if he'd just stayed a plain ordinary football coach instead of the son of Guinviere de Something French Witch thingy, I would have been happy :-)

Oh yay, send right away!

I`ve seen it available for dl but with my little modem? No chance.

I could have lived with this, if it wasn`t completely contradicting what came before. He was a nice guy and they had to make him bad so Lana wouldn`t look like a bitch when she dumped him. So okay, he went bad. Only Lana didn`t see this so she STILL looked like a backstabbing cheating bitch. Man, that was weird. *headdesk*

Oh yay, send right away!

Is sent. :)

Should I burn it and send it then?

That's what I mean. His whole character didn't make ANY sense...

Damn I'm still fiddleling with the Enter Avenger sequel... I just don't get the ending right...

That would be great. I could email you my adress. I really want to get DSL, I wanted to before but our little town was actually out of the net? or something but now it seems to work so I plan on getting it. Then I can watch all my lovely little shows when they air. Or close by. :)

Oh god, endings are a bitch, aren`t they. It would be so much easier to keep going...and going...and going. I have such a hard time finding a sufficient punchline.

Didn't I offer that to you once? If you want it let me know, I'll upload it and you'll be able to download it. :)

You did and thank you but my problem is, I only have dial-up so it would be way too big for me to dl. 30 MB take me like 2 1/2 hours. *sigh*

It`s like a cliché come to life. At least for me. :(

I've ranted too much about this already, I'm ranted out but I mean they didn't even try. I'm with Legoline, I actually have considered not watching. I'm just afraid they might stick something important in there about something else(like in Bugs, where the episode was meh but some of the family background stuff we found out was important), so I probably WILL end up watching it. The thing is that just plays right into their hands, so long as you watch, they don't care--it's only if something will make you stop watching that they will do anything to change what you don't like. Anyway I'm prepared to send another postcard after the episode airs, to let them know again how much I hate this idea and everything surrounding it(the roadhouse, Ellen and her little "assignments" yuk! I want my boys independent and finding jobs on their own). My fear is the teenyboppers will just be all like "OMG! That is like, totally, my fanfic! This is SOOOO aweSOME!" and that's all they'll hear. I hate to say it but my hope is that the following week, the ratings drop(which might be taken to mean that people were turned off).

It`s not really funny but then it is because it`s true. That`s totally some fanfic I`ve...not read but seen the summary. *headdesk*

I hate to say it but my hope is that the following week, the ratings drop(which might be taken to mean that people were turned off).

Thing is the next episode is one I`m really looking forward to and which seems like it could be an awesome one. With the Gordon/Dean-relationship and Sam being a bit of an outsider, it`s very much "How the other half`s live." This is more Dean`s world.

Wah, it`s all so unfair.
