Asta 2

(no subject)

First off, you all were right, the third episode of SG-1 blows. It reminded me of Farscape’s ‘I, ET’. I don’t know if it’s a need by the show runners that after they introduce us to the characters and premise they feel they have to give us something familiar and 'Look! We're the aliens!'. This would be ok if they did something original with the material. Watching an hour of a society dominated by males with the women are on par, at best, with the livestock is not my idea of fun. I’ll give the ep and series credit for one thing though, throughout most of the episode is the threat of Sam being violated sexually and they don’t make light of it.

Oh, and a question which I probably know the answer to. How come in the pilot episode they need Daniel to translate and here we are two episodes later and everyone speaks English? Which is probably why in ‘Wormhole Xtreme’ we have Martin asking of a set decorator in regards to aliens, “You think they eat apples?” And the response, "Why not? They speak English?"

‘Wormhole Xtreme’ had many clever moments, but it paled in comparison to ‘200’ which, even having only seen about 30 episodes of the series, I will state is the BEST EPISODE EVA!

In non-SG1 news, I saw Little Miss Sunshine yesterday and OMG YOU HAVE TO SEE THIS MOVIE! It’s the funniest film I’ve seen since Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang. The final scene had me laughing so hard I had tears running down my face and my friend S may have pulled a muscle. Excellent cast all around and while Greg Kinnear will usually convince me to see a film, the standouts for me were Abigail Breslin who comes off as a real little girl and Steve Carell who has the funniest running motion I have ever seen.

I see Snakes on a Plane may tank. MUWAHAHAHAHAH!!!!

HAPPY (slightly belated) BIRTHDAY! to keswindhover. I didn't forget! I just didn't post yesterday. Hope you had mucho fun. :)

This Was Going To Be More About 'Stargate", But...

Before I get to that I have to point to some OMG Incredible pictures of the BSG cast in the latest issue of Maxim. syliasyliasylia has kindly posted scans of the pics HERE. I had no idea it was going to be so much of the cast and they all look amazing. The picture of Jamie and Tahmoh almost made my head explode. I love Tricia's hair and James, I don't know if he has ever looked better. I am not crazy about Katee's look, but I'm sure others will appreciate it. ;)

So, I did watch more Stargate this afternoon. Shut up danceswithwords. I took in, amongst some episodes I recorded, 'Prometheus' and 'Unnatural Selection'. Collapse )
