Me likes. Not Farscape by any means, but definitely entertaining and interesting.

So the rebel leader/love interest's name is Logan? Every time the show uses it, it throws me because I expect a snarky, screwed-up boy, not post-Apocalyptic Che Guevara. Can't call him Logan as he doesn't have a yellow xTerra, so I guess I'll refer to him as "Eyes Only." If that name is good enough for the evil totalitarian dictatorship, it's good enough for me.

Also, he has to be the most put-together rebel leader ever. Usually they are reputed to have scraggly beards, stained t-shirts, a friendly uzi or two, and a homicidal gleam in beady eyes. Eyes Only looks intellectual, like Angel's Wesley, or like your neighborhood librarian, that is if your neighborhood librarian is Smoking HOT. Though it's sad to see that sharp razors are really hard to find in the future because the poor man has permanent stubble.

And we also have Jensen Ackles as Alec, the cheerfully amoral establishment boy. First impression? He is almost startlingly handsome. I can see what [livejournal.com profile] crumpeteer sees in him! Don't particularly like his character in a fluffy bunny way, but he amuses the heck out of me and I want to see more of him. Do they ever do much with his character? Oh God, now I am imagining that there are all sorts of Rebel Librarian/Aryan Mutant slash out there. Ick.

And that leads me to the "recreation is assigned" part. Have they been hanging out with the Peacekeepers? I am surprised Manticore is so lackadaisical about it (no cameras, no enforcement) in Max's case. Wouldn't they want to break her? Though seeing Alec and other specimens, they are being way nicer than this one "utopia" from 16th century that I read which had fat people forced to breed with thin people, tall with short etc, so as to produce pleasing uniformity (I kid you not. This was written by some monk with too much time on his hands). Because by that logic, Max would have to be paired with some hideous beast. Like the Dog Guy she encounters. He's more helpful than Alec and Rebel Librarian combined (or even when you subtract Alec from that combo), but being superficial, no love from me there.

I like Max. She is like this crazy mix of River and Aeryn. A much younger, more open Aeryn and a much saner, much less smarter River. Heee.

Max and Logan (OK, since this is angsty, I'll use his name just this once) can't even touch? Wow. And Buffy and Angel with their "no sex because of curse" thought they had it bad. Wimps! Ahhhh, this is just what Dangermousie likes. That bit where they have their emotional reunion and he keeps smiling and she kisses him and then he falls down? Hot angst. Even hotter when the rebel girl gun chick administers the antidote Max beat out of Evil Albino Leader to Rebel Wesley and touches his face to see he's OK and Max just stands near the window and you can tell she so wants to do it herself but can't and she is as physically far away from him as she can get and he quietly asks her to come closer and she says she doesn't know from how far she can infect him. Aaaaangst!

I like the blond rebel girl gun chick, whoever she is.

ETA 1: I went to TWoP to read up Dark Angel episode summaries and gleeeee: "Max and Logan have twelve hours to do it, and they don't. Also, there's a monster." or "Alec went undercover when he was still at Manticore, and fell in looooove with a girl. And then he had to kill her dad" sound right up my alley.

ETA 2: I did manage to get through two episodes of One Tree Hill on fast-forward. Yikes. I can only take this in small dozes. The writers get points for fixing continuity issues from Season 1 of two 16 year olds getting married. Of course, they do it by having Haley's parents be insane and give permission and then buy an RV and drive away forever, leaving their 16 year old newly-married kid. Gaaaaah! I am also amused by Tanned Momster's vehenmence against Nathan and Haley getting hitched, because she herself couldn't have been older than 19 when she got married.
