Asta 2

Woo and Hoo!

The first season of Slings & Arrows will be released on June 27! Amazon is already taking preorders. The current price is $20.99. I may see if I can find it a wee bit cheaper.

The adorably pervy poshcat had a birthday this weekend. No, I am not late wishing her a Happy Birthday! because I already wished her one on her own LJ. :p And she may not even be reading this. Apparently, she has "real life" stuff going on. Who does she think she is getting a life? Pfft. ;)

Ok, I now have confirmation that it was k_julia and I who had a brief discussion on the possibility of Lee and Laura having sex in the mini. I dismissed the idea because, ya know, their world was destroyed and they were kinda on the run for thier lives. But Julia didn't think that was enough to stop them.

So I've been having a hankering to rewatch the mini and last night I finally got around to doing just that. I had intended to watch for research purposes (possible backstory for my fixathon assignment plus "The lady's in charge" just NEVER gets old ;-), but I got distracted looking for a possible opportunity for Lee and Laura to slip away together. Of course, right after they meet is out unless we are looking for a porn film scenerio. And then I thought I had the moment until I realized there wasn't enough time between scenes they were both in and it would have had to have been *really* fast and that's just no fun for anyone. On my third attempt at rationalization I thought I found myself a possible winning scenerio. I thought about it a bit last night, but not to the point it kept me awake. To counter the tedium of work, I contemplated it more this morning. Once I did a bit of role revearsal with the characters I found I might have something. Now I can't stop thinking about it. Oh, no, don't think about the on-the-run scenerio or your fixathon request, let's start something new to obsess over! Sigh.

In other entertainment news...I saw Thank You for Smoking yesterday and loved it. I can't recall the last time I laughed that much in a movie theatre. Of course, amidst the laughs I found way too much of it to ring true. Especially the cigarette tie in with the movie. I turned to my mother and said, "It's sad, but I think that could work."

I've also started watching The West Wing again as the series winds down. I have to say I'm impressed with how they have handled John Spencer's death. Since I haven't watched the show for years, I am confused by one thing and hoping some kind soul can help me out. What happened with Toby? I hadn't seen him in the last two eps and at the funeral he's sitting by himself in back and can't be photographesd with the President. What the heck did he do???

I read a brief interview with Katee this morning and since it did contain spoilage I won't link it, but a non-spoilery bit of info I found interesting. Apparently she is shooting BSG and 'White Noise 2' simultaneously. And from the 19th thru the 21st she'll be shooting BSG during the day and the film at night. If her performance seems off or she looks like hell around ep 2 or 3 we'll know why. :p

What happened to Toby...
To cut a long story short (there's more to it then this and if you want more info let me know and I'll email you a longer explanation) Toby leaked a national security secret (about the existence of a military shuttle) to a reporter from the New York Times - he was fired (obviously) and is facing time in jail for the crime - he's not allowed to have any contact with anyone from the White House for obvious reasons, though Josh has been ringing him during the campaign...Hope that explanation helps!
Re: What happened to Toby...
Poor Tobus indeed - though the scene at the very beginning of S7 rather gave away the fact that it obviously all works out okay in the end *grins*
It's possible they could have had sex in the mini. I can't think of where right now, but I am a firm believer in a fan's ability to invoke porn.

I've picked up watching The West Wing again, too. It's not as bad as I had feared, and from what I've seen of last night's episode (I only saw the first fifteen minutes or so), it seems like they handled Leo's funeral nicely.

Can you link to Katee's interview for me? I'm not seeking out sides or anything for next season, but I feel like interviews are acceptable. I can't believe how much the actors themselves spoil this show. It's ridiculous.
I got the link to the interview at thesecretcylon. Interestingly, another link to the same interview was just posted. I'd check out the Zap2It piece. It contains slightly more information but, again, nothing huge in terms of spoilage. Actually, I think you, like me, will appreciate some of the things Katee talks about.

I thought of when, where, how...this fans mind can not un-invoke the porn! ;p
Spoilers discussion from article
That was an interesting article, thanks. The hair issue intrigues me. As does the other thing.
Lee and Laura having sex? why I didn't even know they liked each other

the things one learns from reading your posts....
I'm glad Thank You For Smoking finally came to a theater near you! I knew you'd like it - I thought it was hilarious too. And yeah, I think that cigarette tie-in idea could definitely work. Actually, I'm suprised it hasn't happened yet!
plus "The lady's in charge" just NEVER gets old ;-)

So true!

I definitely think they could have had sex in the mini, and I'm curious to see where you think it might have happened. I also once read a fic (forget who wrote it) where they met the day before the attack and basically had a one night stand. I've watched the mini with that in mind, and it totally could happen! So now, I think a rewatch is in order, with a focus on this particular scenario...
It seems a lot of people have watched the mini recently or have now been motivated to do so. ;) I think I'll need to post a few observations I made. No matter how many times I see it I always pick up on something new!

The fic you speak of is k_julia's. I actually brainstormed a bit with her before she wrote it. The line that struck me was Laura's "Nice to see you again Captain" after he's brought aboard Colonial One. See him again? When did she see him before?!
I'll gladly take bunny blame. :-) And hey, after what I ended up thanks to you, it's only fair!

There seems to be time missing between the final fight and the funeral/hangar deck speech -- he could go to make sure she's all right after the battle, hmm...
I've only actually watched the first two hours of the mini thus far so the scenerio I'm envisioning comes sooner. However, now I'll have to play close attention to the rest to see if maybe they have another opportunity. ;)

Did you watch the vid yet? It even had Lee/Laura!
*sigh* I love the mini. When it was the only BSG thing I had on DVD for awhile, I watched it over and over and over again. I am not a Lee/Laura shipper per se, but I am all in favor of inserting some sex of a non-Cylon type into the mini. :-)
