Fandom Babble (SG-1, Atlantis, Buffy)  
Just finished watching SG-1 and Atlantis. Now I must ramble like the fangirl I am. ^_^

SG-1- Is it just me, or is someone trying to kill this show? The quality has gone down hill so fast it's practically a vertical drop. *disgusted* We had, what, five seconds of Daniel total? Then there's all the forced UST between Carter and her commanding officer. (How do you spell 'conflict of interest'?) I don't care what Teal'c and Jack said at the end of the ep-- it was all Sam's fault. 'Cause any more she's just an overwrought bitch. And there were two of her. *kicks writers*
I miss Daniel.
Also, poor Teal'c. His entire presence in this episode is summed up as, 'here I am holding a gun that turns out to be useless. and I have hair now. woo.' *sigh*

Atlantis- Not crazy about the plot, but-- so much Carson Beckett, I am giddy with joy! I love Dr. Beckett. I want to take him home, and feed him cookies, and make him talk to me in his pretty accent. He's just so cute. Ford is going to get his ass kicked, though, as he was being a brat _and_ being mean to Carson. No one messes with my pretty Scottish doctor! I also like Sheppard, because he foiled the plans of the Ja'nai (sp?) with such cheer and ease. Is it just me, or are the writers trying to get us to believe that Sheppard has a thing for Weir? *is suspicious* Oh well, I remain a devoted fan of Beckett/McKay. They had that little exchange of each other's names at the end. *happiness*

Buffy- I am severely annoyed. Spike is an awesome, kick-ass, attitude-ridden Master Vampire with abandonment issues and the ability to love deeply. He is not a stupid horndog who pants after Buffy. I want my Spike back!

I have every intention of watching the new Battlestar tomorrow... *loves Boomer* Yes, I am a fandom geek. Why did you ask?

Oyasuminasai,
Meredith

ETA: Looking at the above, I realize it sounds like I don't support any het pairings at all. I just wanted to state that I'm not completely anti-het. I like Padme/Anakin, Ron/Hermoine, and I even have a sneaking likeness for... *is embarrassed* Buffy/Angel. However, I hate it when writers try to force two totally incompatible characters together, compromise them, and call it 'romance'. *snorts* Besides, I like my sci fi without the soap-opera, generally. That's what fanfiction is for. ^_^

There's some awesome Atlantis later in the season (illegal downloads much? haha). And Sheppard does not want Weir. He wants Teyla and probably McKay and possibly Ford. Not Weir. Because no one wants Weir because she's dull. :)

Good. Orgy in the gateroom! ^_~

Seriously-- I like Weir and Sheppard as friends, and I can't stand Weir solo. A romantic pairing would be scary. *much relief*

Bad Amber. No cookie. *gives a cookie anyway*

Waitwaitwait. BSG is tomorrow? I thought it was Fridays.

It is Fridays-- I have it on tape. ^^;;; Sorry, didn't mean to panic anyone, there.

Nah, it's okay. :) I just thought I might have a shot at seeing it in the lounge if it were tomorrow. Happy watching!

I hear you on Spike. As much as I kinda liked the last episode, Buffy really fizzled at the end. Stupid Spike-ruining.
If you ever watch Angel, Spike shows up for the last season. And, well, Spike and Angel having to work together and completely hating each other? So great.

I even have a sneaking likeness for... *is embarrassed* Buffy/Angel.
They had their moments. The last episode of season 2 always kills me dead with them. And actually I like their relationship better after it's over, how it's dealt with when he gets his own series. But like one of your earlier post's comment thread pointed out, and finally made me realize, the age thing is creepy.

The thing is, one can do Spike-in-love without being OOC. They did it with Dru, and they could do it again, just not with Buffy. Spike would never in a million years have any sort of tolerance for Buffy. He'd probably think of it as messing with Angel's left overs. *has squicked herself with the above statement*

I was just watching the ep where Dru comes back and tries to get Spike to return to the fold. For a few minutes, I saw the real Spike... *sniffles* And then they had to do that weird Harmony/Dru/Buffy cat fight thing. *snorting*

And, well, Spike and Angel having to work together and completely hating each other? So great.
Dang it-- bewteen you, Raven, and Amber, I'm gonna end up watching Ats too. Evil, you are.

But like one of your earlier post's comment thread pointed out, and finally made me realize, the age thing is creepy.
Which is why I don't really support the pairing-- just have a sneaking likeness for it. And, like you, I have more fondness once its over. *blinks* Weird, I know...

Poor Angel. Even if I don't like him all that much, he needs someone decent to be paired with.

That's a really interesting idea.
Actually, I could almost believe it from that perspective. I mean, Spike has definite severe Angel-issues and I could see him going after Buffy just to torment Angel. But that isn't how the series does it - they make him very out of character and love-sick puppy. The kicker is, I can believe the Buffy half of the romance a little bit, but not the Spike.

It's choppy. Especially the later seasons. Some episodes were just amazing and then there'd be a long string of crap. But it definitely had it's moments and I loved Doyle more than any other character in the whole Buffyverse (he narrowly beat out Oz) and Westley got to grow up and Gunn and Fred were fun.
*holds out crack*

Angel does sorta get a good pair in his series, but, well, he's cursed. So obviously things go wrong.

*nods* Spike's goal then would be to be the one in control. To wrap Buffy around his finger and throw it in Angel's face, or something like that.

Exactly. Spike loves, but when he does, it's a deep, twisted, consuming thing-- not a stealing-your-sweater thing. He'll do anything for the one he loves (look at Dru), but he doesn't expose the 'weakness' of loving unless he's certain he's safe and in control.

*holds out crack*
You push your product well, little lady. ^_~

'Cause, other wise, it wouldn't be a curse. ^___^

Exactly. He'd go in entirely as a kick to Angel. He may accidentally feel a bit himself in the process, but I'd be skeptical of that. And he does use it to push Angel's buttons.

And they try that a little with Buffy. There is the scary/creepy obsessive stalking thing with the robot and all (wait, shoot, am I spoiling stuff?) but it's not done very spike-like.
I love how Spike is an evil bastard and yet I feel really sorry for him.

It's easier when you have high-ish quality stuff to push.

Now that I'd like to see. Angel deserves to have his buttons pushed-- and often. ^_~

(wait, shoot, am I spoiling stuff?)
Dear, I've been reading fanfiction. You can't spoil me any more than that has. *is such a bad girl*

I love how Spike is an evil bastard and yet I feel really sorry for him.
Precisely. That's the edge they need to play. He's so old and yet, at the same time frozen at a period of uncertainty... he's tough, but William still exists, kicked, bruised and hurt by the world, at his core.

*would cuddle Spike, but has no desire to die*
