Asta 2

Nearly Pointless Post

I'm sensing something BIG happened in Part 4 of Children of Earth. I'm tempted to click on cut tags, but am trying to remain strong. It's not like I really care, but my curiosity kills most of the time. I had hoped to watch last night, but there was IMing, then Burn Notice (And, for the record, you DO NOT have to go to the state capital to get copies of incorporation documents. They can be FedEx'd to you overnight. Apparently, the writers are too busy coming up with ways to break into a building to do simple fact checking.), and then I fell asleep at 10:00. The late nights this week caught up to me. On the plus side, I can watch Parts 4 and 5 back-to-back tonight.

There was come cute and funny character stuff at the beginning of the episode and the supposedly shocking, but I saw it coming, reveal of Jack being involved in the children being taken in 1965. But, in between all that, I was incredibly bored. Who thought having a long scene involving people negotiating would be interesting? Not to mention, you knew at the very end the 456 would be OMG asking for our children. It seems from what I'm reading outside the cut tags that at least stuff happens in Part 4. Hopefully, it doesn't involve horrible things happening to Rhys or the fetus.
If you can watch both eps back to back tonight, DO NOT CLICK on any cut-tags. Srsly.

If you're not that invested you might not really care, but then again you might be glad you stayed away. And then you'll be able to go straight into what happens next without the agonizing wait. :-/
Or you can wait until ep 5 airs, and monitor how elated/disgusted your flist is, before deciding whether to bother. Ep 4 annoyed me a good deal, so Ep 5 better be a cracker.
That's interesting that Part 4 annoyed you. Most people, from what I can tell from reactions outside cut tags, loved the episode. But you and I tend to be on the same page when it comes to the show so I wonder if I'll have the opposite reaction as well?
I stayed strong! Though, getting distracted by work at work helped. ;)

I'm waiting on Part 5 now and getting ready to watch Part 4.
I don't even watch Torchwood but I had to click on one of the cut-tags to find out what the deal was. I love big fannish events like this; seeing the wave of posts amuses me.
Heh. I've been known to do that myself. I hate being out of the loop! And I'm largely watching Torchwood just so I'm not left out of the latest hot topic on my Flist. And five hours isn't that big a commitment.
