It's amazing how bored I am with Battlestar Galactica Season 4. I adored S1 and 2 and liked S3 but this...God.

The overwhelming mysticism turns me off, with all the characters being Cylons, demigods, prophesied or something else similar. I started watching the show because I preferred seeing people, normal people, some heroic and some not, not this symbolism on PCP. When your characters are merely symbols, guess what - they stop being interesting characters. Not to mention all the gimmicky plot "twists."

It's not helped by the fact that probably the only two remaining characters that don't irritate me are Helo and Athena, and that's probably because they don't get much screentime. Lee went from a favorite to someone I want to smack every time he is on-screen. Kara just evokes rage (smugness and dysfunction? Not an appealing combo). Adama should be the President of the "It's all about meeeee!" club, Baltar is, as always, loathsome, and Roslin...the less said the better. I have no sympathy for the craven and selfish Final 4, either, with the possible exception of Tigh.

Way to go, show! Take the characters I like and wreck them.

I'll finish, just because I am a completist, but ugh.

Impatient for more K-Hanadan? So am I.

Here is an 8-minute preview for ep 5:

http://v.youku.com/v_show/id_XNjY1ODQwNTI=.html

He. Is. Washing. Her. Feet. Damn you, kdramas, and your knowledge of my ironclad kinks! (Also, for those S/Y shippers on my flist, there seem to be plenty of goodies in eps 5 and 6).

8-minute preview for ep 6:

http://v.youku.com/v_show/id_XNjY1ODA1MzI=.html

Mmmmmm.

In other news, saw Chandni Chawk to China. There is a decent hour-and-a-half movie hiding somwhere within the 2.5+ hr monstrocity. Save your money.

Off to watch new Battlestar Galactica!

I am so excited Battlestar Galactica is coming back!



It's been a crazily long hiatus and so my excitement went away but now it's back full steam.

Nead to rewatch 4.0 because I don't remember much of it any more.

Also, I know it's floating around but I can't find it. Is it true there is a spoiler for the identity of the Final Cylon? Please? PLEASE. Let me know who it is!

I have finally watched episodes 5 and 6 of S4 of Battlestar Galactica. Oh boy, were they a heavy going. I really don't care for S4 at all so far. Probably because the number of characters I don't want to airlock is steadily dwindling (current number? Limited to Helo, Athena, Tigh, and Gaeta. And Adama and Roslin, though the mystical babble in Roslin's storyline is making me so antsy, and though ocassionally they have been two characters I havw wanted to strangle.) I've got to loathe Kara to a degree I am longing for her to be written out (and I used to love her), I am glad Lee wasn't in this ep because lately he has been driving me up the wall, I loathe the stupid Baltar=Jesus storyline (and what is Tyrol doing being drawn into it?), Tory should be airlocked, and even Anders, whom I generally like, made me want to shoot him in ep 6, what with the bizarre, unremorseful and useless shooting of Gaeta. WTF? But it's mainly Kara rage. She can go to hell any way she prefers, but her complete lack of interest and total disregard for anyone in her orbit whom she can endanger, combined with her 'I know best' attitude is awful. I wouldn't follow a headcase like her across the road, let alone on a quest to Earth.

Also, is it me, or are Helo and Gaeta (and ironically Athena) the only military characters who treat it as a military organization, with orders and rules, and not some bizarre 'I do whatever' club? WTF?

On the plus side:



How do I love that the Human/Cylon, started-out-as-an-experiment ship is the most normal and healthy relationship on the show? Guuuh, I love them.

Seriously, I liked S1-3 but S4 needs to get back on track.

1. I don't like Lee Adama on Battlestar Galactica. I don't dislike him either. I think he is a fine enough person, but fictionally I find him boring. It's like a switch flipped off in S4. I couldn't care less if he disappeared forever. Also, most of cylons could be nuked and I'd applaud. In case everyone forgets, they did perpetrate the annihilation of most of the humans.

2. Donna in this season of Doctor Who is awesome but if they kill her off at the end, I won't be upset. I have no emotional involvement in the characters this season, beyond 'oooh, Tennant looks pretty when he angsts.'

3. I dislike My Name is Kim Sam Soon. This might be one of the most popular and beloved dramas out there, but I am not just indifferent to it (a la Devil Beside You), I actively dislike it. I don't have any negative feelings carried over towards the male lead because I saw him in a drama I adored first, but since it was the first thing I've seen the female lead in, I am actually reluctant to watch anything else with her.

4. Supernatural brings on the pretty. It brings on nothing else. Nothing wrong with that, but seriously, it's not some sort of TV revelation.

5. I don't like Jane Austen. She is technically brilliant, but there is no genuine emotion or warmth in any of her stories, and permit me not to care about a bunch of well-off, snobbish upper class individuals. Lizzy strikes me as a shallow, self-satisfied woman too fond of making fun of at others' expense, and much too concerned with societal norms. And let's not even get into snobbish Emma or saintly-martyr Elinor. Or Fanny! Persuasion is the only of her novels I genuinely like, though Northanger Abbey is also somewhere in the like category. The rest are well-written and entertaining but entirely empty. Give me the Brontes' emotion or Gaskell or Dickens' awareness of social realities any day.

6. It's not cooler just because it's slash. It's not cooler just because it's het. It's not cooler just because it's gen. Seriously. If the story and characters are interesting, then it's cool. The type of relationships you prefer does not make it inherently superior to other stories.

I am sure there is lots more but that's enough of contrariness for the day...

Adama.

Roslin.

GUHHHHHHHH.

(if someone told me a couple of years ago I'd be like that, while caring not a bit about Lee/Kara, I would have thought they were nuts).

I repeat.

Adama. Roslin. GUHHHHHH.
