I have no idea what that had to do with crop rotation.

 

Spoilers. So many spoilers. )

Warning, the following was written on very little sleep. I've been awake for over twenty hours (night shifts, they will mess with your circadian rhythm like whoa). This is partially an episode reaction to Face the Raven, but it is also a reaction to the entirity of series 9 and its themes. It is a collection of thoughts I've been having for the last several months which have grown stronger with each episode. It is a collection of thoughts that I had to think really hard about during a recent phone conversation.

Spoilers for all of series 9 thus far )

First half is HERE

Continuing from where I left off last time... )



Tonight is apparently a night for watching old scifi, so upon finishing Assignment One I tried watching Lexx, which is a Canadian-German scifi show from the 90s which I'd never heard of before yesterday but looked intriguing... I could not get through a single episode.

The only entertaining characters were the dragonfly bomb (who died), and the love sick robot head on a skateboard. I also enjoyed the space pirate in a sparkly pink sequined kilt. These are awesome things, but they were not enough to redeem the confusing muddle of a plot and the Ben Steed levels of fail.

... has anyone else on the flist watched this show? It got good reviews on IMDB. Is it just the first episode that's terrible? Should I persevere? Or should I ditch it and watch more S&S instead?

Merry Christmas all!

I've just spent the eve of it making penguin nails, cleaning the house, writing fic, and watching old British SciFi. Since I know at least one person of the flist who will probably get quite a bit of glee out of there being a reaction post to this... here you are [livejournal.com profile] lost_spook. You are a dangerous dealer of vintage fandom, you know that, right?

I... what did I just watch?!?!
This could not be more crack if it tried. )

Since I'm getting near the end of the season I feel like the next two episode are probably going to be really depressing and full of people randomly dying and awful cliff-hangers and all of that... which I will watch with anticipation and enjoyment, but I really enjoyed this crack. It was just so much crack. :D

ETA: I just watched the finale, and yup. Check. Check. Double check on the cliff-hanger. But I loved this bit of dialogue:

Vila: "Avon, this is stupid!"
Avon: "And since when has that ever stopped us?"

Ahhh!! Time to mainline series 3 me thinks.
