Seriously... whenever he comes on screen, I pull up a pillow and hide behind it. Between his comments about the show (and female characters!) and his own presence on the Doctor Who Confidential eps that i've been watching -- I just don't like him. At all.

Okay, so I give in... "The Impossible Planet" made me gleeful at the Rose/Ten cuteness, particularly the mortgage talk, the kissing of the helmet, and Ten wanting to rush up when he hears that Rose is in trouble. Plus, his sincere regret at getting her stuck there, coupled with her sheer awesomeness at adapting to the situation and buoying his spirits... how can he NOT love her? Rose Tyler is fantastic. There's no way around it.

Btw, Billie Piper and David Tennant's real life friendship? Also great. It reminds me of Meloni and Mariska... just the joy they get out of being around one another. Sadly, Billie and David don't get the ten years together that CM and MH did... they need to work together in the future!

So with my experiences in the SG-1 and BSG fandom, I thought I had read every sci-fi related fanfic cliche... but the whole time travel thing? Throws another whammy into the works. Read more... )

I just watched "The Girl in the Fireplace"... and it was weird.

Really. I didn't dislike it, or like it. It was just weird and felt... off. Reinette was cool, and Rose was compassionate as always (what's up with the Rose being portrayed as jealous in fic? She and Reinette were the good parts of this ep! I love that she was concerned about how Reinette was taking the whole thing), but the Doctor again did not do it for me. I didn't get the whole him being in love with her thing -- it just didn't seem to fit, and his always running off without telling his companions irritated me, only to be eclipsed by his asking a figure from history to join him on his travels... if an ordinary person like Pete can make that much of a difference, what about someone who's notable?

And Poor Mickey! What an awkward first trip out, being abandoned by the designated driver. Please don't compare a horse to Mickey, Doctor, especially when YOU were the one to let him come along. Nine didn't leave Rose behind when she was trapped with the shields breaking, so don't leave Mickey (and Rose) either.

And again, I'd like to know why the droids a) chose Reinette (and why a ship named after a French mistress in the 51st century?) and b) thought Rose was compatible.

I want to like Ten as much as I love Nine. But it's not happening yet!

But funniest part? "She always did work too hard." She was a courtesan. A mistress. So that line, coming from her lover? Makes me giggle terribly. Hee.
pataka02: (pam oh awesome)
"In Plain Sight" still continues to be awesome, and Mary and Marshall's partnership fills me with glee. Even better? Apparently each West Wing cast member is slowly coming to the show... first Will Bailey (Joshua Malina) and now Toby (Richard Schiff)! Please send along Bradley Whitford, Janel Maloney, and Allison Janney anytime soon, mm'kay?

Dear Ron Moore:

For future endeavors, for a good idea of what a lovely (and satisfying) series finale is, along with a good director cameo, see "Scrubs,"  m'kay?

Love,
Me

(p.s. -- it helps if you don't kill off the awesome female leads and leave the whiny, crying men behind to rebuild civilization.)

Yeesh.

Is it possible to have hot flashes when you're in your twenties? I have no idea if these count as such, but sometimes I get so freakin' hot and then they go away and I'm all cold. Not cool, body temp.

I just watched the Doctor Who ep "School Reunion" and... GILES! Read more... )
pataka02: (Sam -- death by bra)
If anyone out there has watched the latest ep of "In Plain Sight," please tell me it's okay to watch because I know Michael Angeli wrote it..

I thought once BSG was over, I'd never have to watch Angeli's writing again. *pouts*


Also, what do they put in Oreos to make them so freakin' addictive? Yum. Wait, maybe I don't want to know...
pataka02: (Default)
Is anyone else watching "The Unusuals"? It started last week and I find that I'm liking it so far. But I'm a big fan of Amber Tamblyn, and I really like the burgeoning partnership she has on the show, as well as the rest of the cast.

ETA: HAPPY BIRTHDAY [livejournal.com profile] gabolange !!!! And I also wanted to wish [livejournal.com profile] sabaceanbabe a Happy Belated Birthday!!!

I watched "New Earth" andRead more about Doctor Who... )
pataka02: (Sam -- death by bra)
So I finally watched "The Christmas Invasion" and I still have yet to make up my mind about Ten.

Read more... )

Btw, I'm almost finished with Season two of "Secret Diary of a Call Girl" and Billie Piper is an AMAZING actress. Seriously, she's just fantastic, and so good as Hannah/Belle. And worlds away from Rose. Or Fanny Price, for that matter (which, though I saw her in Mansfield Park, I won't comment on because honestly, Fanny drives me nuts regardless).

pataka02: (Mirror Todd)
It's cold and rainy today... therefore a perfect day to take the dog to the vet, right? Not so much. But he was a trooper, poor shaking baby that he is, and got all his shots and a clean bill of health. I love the vets office, actually, because they're all really nice in this fantastic genuine way, and it's so good to be able to trust your vet, especially when your dog is old as mine (he's a 13 year old black lab). Of course, now he's nestled on his blankets, and refusing to go for a walk, or even get his dinner. Hee. It's possible he's afraid of going back.

As for me, I've been exploring Doctor Who fandom... haven't started Season 2 yet (waiting on Netflix!), but there's SO much fic and stuff, it's overwhelming. Truly a prolific fandom. But I have a couple of questions, if any of my enlightened flist can answer for me...

Is it a fanon thing that Jack ever called Rose "Rosie"? And that he taught her some self-defense moves? Because that seems prevalent in fics, but I didn't notice it in season 1.

Also, there's a lot of anti-Martha bashers which I understand because character-bashing is one of the great tenents of fandom, sadly... but I haven't seen any Martha bashing. In fact, I see whole lots of Rose-bashing, calling her a Mary-Sue (Wtf?) and such, and it's weird. Not that I want to see Martha bashing, but I'm just wondering why there's all this companion bashing? It's kind of irritating because so much of the glee seems to be reserved for the Doctor, and that makes me sad. Because I actually watch for Rose, and her interactions with the Doctor. I find them together much more interesting than the Doctor alone.

And I'm sad that there aren't more repercussions about Rose and the Bad Wolf thing. Because honestly, there SHOULD be.
pataka02: (pam oh awesome)
So I finally finished Season 1 of Doctor Who... and yes, I am hooked. Rose Tyler? Awesome. Nine? Fantastic. How can I not love them? They need each other so much and they just get one another... they're adorable.

I'm still all teary eyed from watching "The Parting of the Ways" (poor Jack!). And I'm completely spoiled for what happens in the future, but I'm wondering if I'm gonna like Ten. And if he takes care of Rose the way Nine did. Because I love how Nine tries to save Rose again and again and then she goes and saves him right back.

Gah. I'm all mushy. Way to go, show.

Meme fun.

The Cliff, Shag, or Marry meme that's going around...

1. Comment and I will give you 3 people.
2. Post this meme with your answers.
3. Label which you would marry, shag, or cliff.

(if you want to specify characters rather than actors, that's cool.)

First off, I have to admit that I've given Dr. Who a shot because I needed to use up my Netflix Watch Instantly hours and wanted to try it... so I started with the Ninth Doctor and watched the first three eps and I'm in danger of being hooked. Or I am hooked. It was fun, and I like it, and possibly I'll post more about it later, but yeah..

Anyways, on to BSG.

Reactions!  )
pataka02: (pam oh awesome)
Happy Birthday, [livejournal.com profile] annerbhp ! Clearly this is a great day because you were born... as well as my sister, and Jenna Fischer from "The Office." Such illustrious company! Hee.

I hope you have a fantastic day and thanks for being such a lovely and compassionate presence, not to mention an extremely talented fic writer who totally gets the awesomeness of Sam/Jack. I'm so happy to be LJ friends with you!

Happy, happy birthday!

pataka02: (Sam -- death by bra)


Did anyone else feel confused by that episode? Like it was all over the place... fragments attempting to make a plot, but failing.

My reactions...  )
pataka02: (starbuck bitches)
Holy frak. My fic came true?? Wtf?!? Detritus was my first BSG fic and it freakin' came true, for the most part, anyways.

Kind of in shock.

Meanwhile,

HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!

 
I hope you have a fantastic day full of OTP goodness (whether it's Sam/Jack, Olivia/Elliot, House/Cameron, or Goran/Eames)... and that your year is even better! I've had a great time bonding with you over SVU and SG-1 the past year, and I'm looking forward to another year of getting to know you better. Happy Birthday, hon!

How am I supposed to do without new "Leverage" eps until summer? This seems like a cruel and unusual punishment.

I think this might be the first show where I absolutely cannot pick a favorite character. I love them all -- Nate and his sadness, Hardison and his quips, Elliot who I totally want to hug, Sophie and her awesomeness, and Parker and her love of money.

Gah. How can anyone choose a favorite?!? *squishes them all*
