Asta 2

(no subject)

I gave The Inside another last chance. I could possibly deal with the mediocrity of the writing if not for the fact the lead is one of the worst actresses I've ever seen. Who the hell made the decision to give this woman work? I would have shut the ep off fifteen minutes in if not for a moment of nostalgia...the agents are getting out of their car to investigate the crime scene, in front of a movie theatre. And what's playing at the theatre? 'Once More With Feeling' with what looked like it could have been an image of Dru and Spike from 'Fool For Love'.

Also, the name of the cat that a little girl lost? Angel. Yeah, they may have pushed it there.


The latest issue of Entertainment Weekly is The Must List with the stars of Superman adorning the cover. Just a few things that made me think of you all ;) and you may want to check out are: a very cool pic of the Serenity cast (Musts numbers 14-22), a mention of the DVD release of Profit (26), Bradley Cooper (28), the women of Deadwood (52-56), Hugh Laurie (78), and the cast of Veronica Mars (103-106).


Tonight I spent $7 on the July issue of Dreamwatch for a two page interview with Jamie Bamber. It's safe to say I've crossed the line from casual fan to, well, something (hopefully) short of fanatic.


Question: Lee must be one of the few people on Galactica who doesn't have a love life....

Answer: I'm fully aware of that. Everyone always asks me what I would like to see and I don't like to reduce it to the lowest denominator, but I'd like to see him get some or at least to have someone who'd quite like to get some from him, or give him some credit. There's a great debate out there about Apollo's sexuality. Is Apollo gay? Who knows? Maybe he is but I haven't been playing him that way.


Apollo gay??? Who's hypothicizing that?! OK, I know the writers have made some drastic changes from the original incarnation, but I can't imagine them taking it that far. And wasn't the point of making Starbuck a woman to create the possibility of UST between she and Apollo? People, not every TV character is gay. Why am I envisioning Helo/Apollo fic increasing now?

I still owe you all a Batman Begins review. I know, quit pushing me! ;p

I agree with you on the awful actress as lead. I really hate her. Right now, Adam Baldwin's character is my saving grace and we don't get nearly enough of him. Although I almost liked the redhead tonight (Prefiler *snicker*). And honestly, if the boss-dude KNOWS EVERYTHING already, why does he need his team!? Seriously!? I hate his character almost as much as I hate Horatio Kane. Condescending, Know-It-All, Slow-Talking Fuckers.

Yeah, so I'm not thrilled with The Inside. Sigh.
You basically covered the positives of the ep. I've liked the actress (whose name escapes me) that portrays the other female agent since seeing her on 'Wonderfalls'. She has some great natural reactions from "prefiler" to sympathizing with the girl's pain over her lost cat. And I loved Adam Baldwin showing the son the proper way to hold and fire a gun. ;-) I just wish the vapid blond weren't sucking the life out of the show.
::pushes you for review::

Hey, you're super-smart and awesome. That is all. Good night.
Given all that screaming of the wrong name at a most inopportune time, it's pretty clear that Starbuck wants to get some from Lee.
Yeah, but I think he wants someone to want some in his presence. And he and Laura in the brig together would provide the perfect opportunity. ;)
Lee gay? News to me too. Looking forward to that review :)
I was going to say I must have missed the memo. But, then, I suddenly heard Harmony's voice saying "There was a memo?" :p
That actress is just so, so bad. And she's in a key role. She literally drags down every scene she's in; not only can't she carry the show, she's actively torpedoing it. I wasn't at all impressed with the episode; the serial killer schtick is already getting trite, and whatsherface is painful to watch.

I'd actually heard some speculation that Apollo's gay, sort of in the vein of "wouldn't it be cool if..." None of the discussion I've seen indicated anybody thought they'd actually go there. But it's interesting, because he's not a traditionally masculine character in a lot of ways--he's got a tendency towards consensus-building in decisionmaking, for example, which is thought of as a "feminine" trait. To me, that's a sign that he's a well-rounded character, complex, not stereotypical, which is one of the reasons I like the show.
I'm certainly use to bad actors/actresses in minor roles, but I'm just flabbergasted (to the point I'm using the word flabbergasted) that FOX, Tim, Jane, and a host of others allowed such a no talent actress to be cast in the lead role. In a show that is suppose to be dark, intense and disturbing, I'm continually pulled out of that by my laughter at her performance.

I completely agree and if people are believeing that because he shows his emotions, listens to the opinions of others, and thinks before he acts (more often than not), as signs he's gay that's just shortsighted and sad. I was already pissed off at the fanfic that made Kara a lesbian because you can't be tough and a girl. :(
