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.
Singer of classical stuffs.
Shameless fanthing.Queer/Genderqueer. Feminist. Progressive. Gen X. Northwest snob. Journalist and media-deconstruction nerd. Happily married and an adoptive parent of a most excellent little boy. Endless pontificator on topics both sublime and ridiculous. Expect both breathless pop-culture squee and wordy rageflails about social justice.
My "home" fandom is Primeval, but these days I'm most heavily into Vikings, Game of Thrones and Arrow. Check my fandoms masterlist to see the other stuff I usually post about. If it has a kickass chick, a charming rogue, and/or an adorkable nerd in it, I probably like it.
I'm an incurable OT3 shipper, particularly of the alpha male/beta male/alpha female flavor, but I ship some pairs, too (het, slash and femslash.) See my ship list for details.
I don't have much time to make fanworks these days, but I have a few fics up on AO3 and some vids on YouTube (under Talea100.)
Fun fact: I had crushes on both C-3P0 and Data.
