BACK TO THE FUTURAMA: Variety is reporting that 20th Century Fox TV is in early discussions to go back into production with Futurama, the Emmy-winning animated series that ran on Fox from March 1999 to August 2003, giving it a Family Guy-style resuscitation. Based on the misadventures of Fry, Leela and Bender, Futurama is set in the year 3000, at which time Lindsay Lohan will have stopped making "news." But until then....
There was also some info about BSG in the 'Ask Ausiello' section (he's the shows newest biggest fan :). Amongst the spoilage, I found one bit of info I could repost, "...the Jan. 13 episode, which, it's worth noting, is one of the most perfect hours of television I've ever seen." And this week's ep apparently ain't bad either. Two Days!
A big HAPPY BIRTHDAY! to molly_may. She's always been a sane voice in a very insane fandom and I can now say she is as sweet in real life as she appears on LJ. Hope we get to see each other again in Spetember. :)
I requested that for the fandom MEME blondeheroine do 'Star Wars'. She, in turn, on her LJ, requested I do the same.
1. The first character I first fell in love with:
This is tricky because I was five when I first saw the 'Star Wars'. I did have a Luke Skywalker poster, but I'm not sure if it's because I asked for it or my mom just got it for me. Maybe I'll say R2-D2 because I thought he was cute and funny.
2. The character I never expected to love as much as I do now:
I'll say Han Solo because I grew to appreciate him more as I got older. He wasn't the cookie cutter hero Luke was.
3. The character everyone else loves that I don't:
Boba Fett. I really don't know what the big deal about him is.
4. The character I love that everyone else hates:
Jar-Jar. I kid! In the love to hate him way, the Emperor.
5. The character I used to love but don't any longer:
I don't think my opinion of any character has changed that much over the years. I can't stand Lucas anymore. Does that count?
6. The character I would shag anytime:
Han, but of course. ;)
7. The character I'd want to be like:
Yoda, but without the weird speech patterns.
8. The character I'd slap:
No question, Anakin in 'Phantom Menace'.
9. A pairing that I love:
10. A pairing that I despise:
Anyone else have a meme request? Let me just say since no one else has said it that Rygel was the first character I loved on 'Farscape'. Yes, I liked the muppet over the hot guy. :p
