Why? Why did I do it? I just watched the Battlestar Galactica season 2 finale (which was amazing) and some horrible impulse led me to...I'm ashamed to admit it...go to a certain site and read something by a certain terrible writer....
Patriotism" is the thing her letter tickled, the thing, the manhood of him, that her letter questioned, and now Billy's dead and she'll never know Gaius read it. She has no idea how that concept cuts to the bone of him

"Manhood of him?" "Bone of him"? What's wrong with the word "his", arsehole? God!
I mean, I am all in favor of TV movies about Theseus -- talk about a timely metaphor, when every joule we've got is devoted to finding the problem anywhere and everywhere else, because we're too scared of the minotaur we helped create, feeding it boys year after year
Someone got a Big Book of Greek Myths for his birthday this year!
Gina breathes in. Takes in air. Chokes it out again.

Oooh, and a How the Human Body Works book too. Looks like he got as far as "Breathing: What is it?"
I never really felt like I entirely got Gaius until now -- maybe I was too scared to think about it
Oh, grow up, you big baby.
She's just human, in trouble, scared and in love, and asking for help. Like a human being, like a scared woman. It's somehow the detail that brings the whole thing on.
It's about.....intimacy?

Oh, sod it. I'm pissed off that I'll have to wait until October (OCTOBER!) for a new episode, and reading that has just made it worse. Why, Jacob, why must you spoil all of my favourite shows for me? I'm a few weeks behind Veronica Mars (don't dare spoil me, anyone) and I just hope to God that he didn't get his pompous little hands on any more of them, because reading about his angst at the thought of Beaver "hurting" made me want to kill someone (even though I love Beaver and didn't want to see him miserable either).

Jacob should just piss off. Seriously. I was just trying to read the recap and he'd annoyed me by the end of the first page with his comments about Cally and Chief. That was one damn good episode though.

You can relax - he didn't get his hands on any more Veronica Mars, and I'll say nothing more so that I'm not at risk of spoiling you :)

Apparently the current Veronica recapper is leaving after this season, and SO HELP ME GOD if Jacob gets the assignment. It will seriously fucking ruin my Tuesday mornings.

Oh no! And the thing is, I wouldn't be surprised if it was him, as he seems to be doing EVERYTHING. And Dr Who will have finished by then, so he'll be free to take on another recap!

the Battlestar Galactica season 2 finale



You know, I normally hate big jumps in time in TV shows, because it's often a crutch for weak writing -- the characters are shown as being just further along whatever trajectory they were on before with a Mcguffin or two thrown in (Vaughn's married!), but BG really gave you the sense of people having continued to have the kind of random turns that mark real lives -- Kara, Tigh's and Ellen's mutual happiness at running into each was wonderful, the ex-Prez's doing a job that's apparently saintly, but where she just happens to be able to keep an eye on the cybaby, Helo taking Geata's post, Geata being Baltar's chief of staff... Plus, Baltar protesting the Prez's incorruptibility: that broke my heart. October, Jesus. Thank God for Doctor Who...
