My new method for generating book ideas …
Harry Potter meets Battlestar Galactica with Telepathic Badgers. Perfect.
if you don’t think the ending to Primeval 3x03 is the saddest moment in television history then you’re probably Helen Cutter
I dunno about television history, but it’s definitely right up there in my personal top 5.*
I totally didn’t know about it going in, either. I was so, so shocked that they went there.
*In no particular order:
- Not Penny’s Boat
- Being Human series 3 finale. ZOMG BUCKETS
- Primeval 3x03 (2x07 is also up there)
- The final five episodes of BSG. They were flawed, but still totally broke my brain.
- And probably half a dozen episodes of Fringe, particularly White Tulip
I suspect most of these will be trumped when Game of Thrones gets to the Red Wedding.
Looking for something new to watch?
Here’s a list of some of my favorites. Chances are good that if you like one of the shows on this list, you’ll probably like a few more.
Amazon has all of them at least on DVD—and has most of them streaming as well—and Netflix and iTunes should have them, too.
- Lost Girl
- Warehouse 13
- Painkiller Jane
- Criminal Minds
- Robin Hood
- Battlestar Galactica
- Being Human
Because I have too much time on my hands and realized I’m so damned predictable.
For those not familiar with all of them:
Kara/Sam/Lee (BSG) - Loras/Margaery/Renly (Game of Thrones)
Morgan/Garcia/Reid (Criminal Minds) - Eliot/Parker/Hardison (Leverage)
As I was saying on Twitter: Give me an Alpha Male/Alpha Female/Beta Male trio, and I will ship it like whoa.
(Also: If Fringe starts going anywhere near Peter/Olivia/Lincoln? I will be ALL over that.)
The BBC: Bamber Broadcasting Corporation. Love it.
You know exactly how to pull my heart strings, Fringe. PLAYIN’ ME LIKE A FIDDLE.
Top 10 Reasons I’m a Bad Fan
4. Battlestar Galactica
I’m one of the dreaded few: A Sam/Kara shipper. Everyone and their toaster shipped her with Lee. Me? I saw her with Sam from the moment they met, and all the way to the end. I was thrilled when she “left” Lee in the finale.
