Friday Night TV-less

Friday, December 11th, 2009

I’ve gotten kinda used to having Friday be my big tv night (yes, my life is full of social Friday night excitement). But since SGU is dead to me, and everything else isn’t on (Note to USA: the point of having shows to fill in while your regular shows go on hiatus is so there […]

Friday Night TV Night

Saturday, December 5th, 2009

1. Stargate: Universe I’m done. I gave this show one more try, because I was curious, and Eli seems nice, and it would be sort of nice to have tuned in and see that they weren’t all about to die again this week. But. It was terrible, I’m not even kidding. Okay, I can be […]

SGFAIL, Episode whatever

Friday, October 30th, 2009

I didn’t watch SGU this week. I’m pretty sure this was the failtastic ep everyone was talking about before the show even started. If so, then — well, I’m already pretty disappointed in the show, so it’s not like it would change my opinion. Also, if it was that episode, then Lieutenant Scott’s gotten way […]

Okay, I’m in love.

Why “White Collar” is eighty-billion-times-better than SGU: 1. After one episode, I already know five people’s names: Neal, Peter, Diana, Elizabeth, June. (That’s as far as I’ve with SGU, even after a bunch of eps: Eli, Dr. Rush, Col. Young, Telford, Scott. Also, note the gender breakdown there. Yikes.) 2. Style!win. The hat rocks. (Although, […]

SGFAIL, Episode… 4?

Friday, October 23rd, 2009

So, I’m bored. And I’m pretty sure that’s not what the writers were going for. But the situation in the show hasn’t significantly changed since the first 30 seconds of the pilot, and it’s getting dull. Just more mortal peril, week after week. “You all know our situation; it sucks. … It’s another bad day.” […]

Doesn’t this make more sense than the actual premise of the show?

Saturday, October 17th, 2009

I’ve been thinking about SGU, and I’ve decided that the stated premise of the show is a lie. Here’s my theory: – So, the SGC is checking in on its base on the planet (whatever it was called; the one Rush’s lab was on), and they think, “Something skeevy’s going on here.” They don’t know […]

As soon as the episode began, I thought to myself, “Hey, what are most of them *doing* all the time? sleeping? having sex? playing games?” Lo and behold, the first minutes revealed the answer: talk uncomfortably amongst themselves, with sporadic awkward laughter. Slash-able Moment: If you squinted, you could say Eli and Scott (okay, his […]

SGU Friday!Fail!

Friday, October 9th, 2009

So after I said I didn’t care about seeing any more episodes of Stargate Universe, I found myself kinda curious about what was going to happen tonight. Here’s the scoop, in case you managed to resist the lure of old-school desert-style Stargate action. Lessons To Be Learned From Tonight’s Episode: 1. Don’t every piss off […]

SGU Quotes

Eli: “Seriously, who uses a whiteboard anymore? You have computers, like, *everywhere* around here!” (and then later, when Rush starts erasing) “What are you doing? Save! Save!” Scott: “As far as we know, this bucket is really freaking old.” (Love that he leaves room to change his story later. “Oops! We *thought* it was really […]

Stargate: Universe — let the mocking begin!

Friday, October 2nd, 2009

The opening: It’s a garbage scow! It’s a tractor pull! No, it’s a giant starship! With a… gate! Activating! Way to build the excitement, because we’ve never, ever seen giant spaceships or gates activating on Stargate before!!! Kidnapping, blackmail, and threats — the SGC’s got to be pretty desperate, you know, since they’re fighting that […]
