Ending BSG

Posted in Science fiction, TV with tags , , on October 18, 2009 by Cara Marie

This is kind of spooky: we just had finished watching Battlestar Galactica (forever!), and turned off the DVD. The TV happened to have been left on the Documentary Channel. Which was showing a program about Atlantis, complete with theories of Earth being visited by aliens, who mated with our ancestors.

Coincidence much?

BSG gets good again, undoubtedly just in time to tear my heart in little itty pieces

We are nearly finished with Battlestar Galactica, at long last. Only Daybreak left, and I’m kind of trepidous – being as I’ve already spoiled myself utterly for the end. Particularly as I really enjoyed the last disc – the first half of the season didn’t really do it for me, what with all the politicking (Sorry, Gaeta), but then, oh my gosh.

Warning: over-excited use of italics. Also spoilers, as if anyone's further behind than me.

Battlestar Galactica and Philosophy

I’ve just finished Battlestar Galactica and Philosophy – the Open Court one, not the Blackwell one, edited by Josef Steiff and Tristan D. Tamplin. I’m such a geek. The book is a collection of essays, some of which, naturally, are cooler than others, though I enjoyed them for the most part.

Post got long

It’s all about the robots

Sarah Connor Chronicles 2.13 – Earthlings Welcome Here

Spooky!

Posted in Science fiction, TV with tags , , on November 16, 2008 by Cara Marie

Last night, we watched episode 6 of Sarah Connor (really good ep, BTW). A resistance fighter comes back from the future. She’s an Australian! (This also happened at the end of season one of SCC – an Aussie, I mean. In that case, it was a clue.)

It’s always somewhat disconcerting when Aussies show up in American programs. Your ears are adjusted to the American accents, and suddenly they throw an Aussie in the mix, and it throws you.

The same thing happened tonight. We were watching Battlestar Galactica: Razor, when suddenly: an Australian!

The same Australian!

Sci-fi television is so incestuous. Or maybe it’s just I’m watching a lot more television than I ever used to, so I notice when actors reappear. I have looked her up, and her name is Stephanie Jacobsen. Unsurprisingly, she also used to be on Home and Away. At any rate I think she’s pretty cool, so I’ll look forward to seeing more of her on SCC.

So. Most distressing episode ever.

Finally started watching Battlestar…

Asides from eating chocolate all weekend, we also finally watched the Battlestar Galactic miniseries, which devilcactus lent me ages back, but was intimidating in its three hour long-ness. I am very glad I watched it, and did not just go to bed.

Here I ramble. A lot.
