Did you hear that? That faint do-do-do-do-do-dooooo music in the background? Could that be the X-Files theme song I detect? No, no, it can't be. . .that show's been over for eight years! Unless. . .but no. It's not possible! A rewatch? No way. Too epic. Minds will explode. Fangirls will faint. Shippers & noromos will come to blows. THINK OF THE CHILDREN!BUT I MUST.
*AND SO IT BEGINS.*
Hee. Not that I'm overdramatic about it or anything
. Um, in other words, I'm ready to start this rewatch! I've got my notes all ready, and I'm ready to get my ramble on. In fact I'm actually writing my entry right now. But it's going to probably be a couple hours (seriously, two episodes of the X-Files + one Rachael = LOTS O' WORDS. Like, a WORD-A-PALOOZA, for reals) before it's posted (should be tonight, though), and in the meantime I felt like posting about a couple other quick things too:1
. In the BSG fandom, we debate important things, okay?
Case in point: treeofstars
and I have been locked in a fight to the death since last night debating the following oh-so-crucial questions:
-Which is better: Diet Coke or Diet Pepsi? (Or Coke or Pepsi, whichever)
-Which would Adama & Roslin prefer? (fyi, we have since decided Adama would be a Pepsi man & Roslin would be a Coke girl--wait, that sounds wrong--and that they'd fight over it regularly)
-Did they, or did they not, frak on New Caprica?
Seriously, since like 10:30 last night folks. At this point, we clearly need an impartial outside party to help settle this once & for all. But I feel I must warn you, I maintain that the earthquake in L.A. today was God's punishment against her for disagreeing with me. So you guys had better choose wisely.
. Somehow in the midst of that fascinating intellectual debate above, I also made time this weekend for a good deal of television watching (not just XF). And so I also wanted to comment a little on Southland & Modern Family.
Re: Southland. I am getting so into this damn show, I'm going to have to create a tag for it soon, I think. I FUCKING LOVE IT. This week's ep made me cry, trufax. It's cop drama-licious. And I'm actually really glad it didn't last on NBC, because it's totally one of those shows that's made for cable. Also, how good did the promo for next week look? Ahhh. Want it now!
Re: Modern Family. "IT'S GO TIME!" Hahaha! Oh, Cam. Thank you for giving me my subject heading today. This show is just so much hilarity-filled happyfaced times. I heart it so much.3.
I need someone to hook me up with some good Caprica screencaps for the Amanda/Clarice scene (you know the one) from 1X07 because I've been bitten by the icon bug. After talking with scifi_mel
, I've decided I need an icon with them that says, "Cockblocked by God" (tm me, ha). Like, I need it in my life like yesterday. And yes, I do realize I am going to get struck by lightning for typing that sentence on Easter. Oh whatever, Jesus, you love it!4.
Speaking of Caprica, while hunting for screencaps that I wouldn't have to download to see (I just want to view them! Argh), I came across this deleted scene from that episode that made my entire day. Why wasn't this on the shoooooooow. WHY?
Best part? "You can be part of the One True God, so uh. . .call me, y'know, and we can. . .mmm, have coffee, yeah? Oh, frak. Just call me, darling! BYE!"
LULZ FOREVER, hahaha. Damn you, Caprica, if you'd had scenes like that all the time, I would've liked you more! You'd better include more shit like that next season, you hear me? MOAR LESBIAN SUBTEXT PLZ. P.S. Don't you even think about not finding a way to bring Amanda back or I will be one angry shipper! 5.
And lastly, lytab5
, ye asked & ye shall receive. I found a fic for you today about Brennan reading her latest
book to Angela: clicky clicky
. Now, if only careyleah
and I could get our hands on that fic we asked for to continue that final scene! (which I won't say anything more about here, because I don't want to spoil poor British crystalcazzie
Okay, and that's all for now because I need to get back to my XF entry. Which will probably take me the rest of the night. Lord help me. Heh. IT'S HARD BEING SO VERBOSE.
I'm skipping a Vid of the Day for this entry because I technically already included a vid with it, and because I already plan to include one with the XF post. So there. *off to do more rambling*
