holdouttrout: not your ordinary fish (sam/thor)
[personal profile] holdouttrout
1. Don't you hate it when you suddenly remember something you've been needing to look up online, and you go to do it, and then the phone rings, so you spend a couple of minutes being pleasant while you're thinking, "Can't forget! Mustn't forget!" only to hang up and find out that you've forgotten?

2. Why is it that the sound of my coworker texting, which is a really quiet almost-typing sound, drives me to contemplating scaling the cubicle wall and snapping off the QWERTY keyboard part of her phone?

3. SG-1 is still SO my show. ♥ I've been re-watching, and am in season three (Yes, again. Be quiet.) and I just have so much love for Sam and Teal'c this time around (mostly Sam & Teal'c right now). Jack just cracks me up, but that hasn't changed. I just watched a scene this morning from Rules of Engagement that goes something like this:

Sam: Oh, hey! Colonel O'Neill has a great idea about how to accomplish this goal, don't you, sir?

Jack: *looks confused* "Uh... okay?"

Sam: *explains idea*

Teal'c: That is indeed a good idea, O'Neill.

Jack: *looks confused and smug*


It's a great scene. Especially Teal'c pwning. Also, I guess Daniel's okay. *grins*

3b. I have to say, though, that Point of View wins the award for most awkward kiss ever. I can't decide whether I want to kill Jack for (our) Sam*, sympathize with Dr. Sam, or just watch the kiss again. It's very confusing!

*Not so much because I feel that only our Sam should be kissed by Jack, but because it's such an asshole thing for him to do in the first place, especially in front of her and the whole rest of the base.

4. I'm still watching-but-not-obsessing-about Revenge and Once Upon a Time. I want my characters to be a bit more competent, please! I think Emma (Once) needs a more immediate villain or something she can actually win at for a change.

thothmes: Daniel and Teal'c.  Daniel looks incredulous.  Legend:  Is Jack kissing Sam?  Indeed. (Is Jack Kissing Sam?)

3b. Yeah, it is an asshole thing to do, but I guess it doesn't bother me on those grounds because:

-Jack'll be the first one to tell you he's an ass sometimes. If he doesn't, Daniel will volunteer it.

-It may not be his Carter, but a Carter asked him for something. He's Jack. He can't deny her anything she asks for with tears in her eyes. [Exception to prove the rule: When he thinks she's Jolinar]

-I think he's so cued into her needs and her pain that he's uncharacteristically forgotten the audience.

-He'll be kicking himself for what he did long after his Carter has decided to forget and move on. Not that he'd ever admit that to her. If she challenged him on it (As if!), he'd just say "I'm not him. She needed to know that." and move on, leaving Sam in his wake.

4) I haven't officially given up on Once Upon a Time, but I keep forgetting to watch it. I think the idea is a great concept for a movie or a book or a miniseries, and a terrible one for a tv show. It pretty much has a set thing that will end the plotarc and the story (them returning to fairy land) and the pacing doesn't work without it knowing how long it has until that end, so every story becomes formulaic and waiting for something to happen.

Also, I wish Emma wasn't so boring compared to all the other characters.

You are SO right about why it won't work. *sighs*

And yes, WHY is Emma so boring?

Season three is the bestest isn't it? It's like when the tea my goodness really hit it's stride.

Oh stargate. How I miss you.

Oh, man, the TEAM.

I was watching Past and Present during lunch, and Daniel's starting to get all cuddly with Kira, and Sam and Jack are just sitting there giving each other these looks, like "Uh oh." They seem rather glum about it, for some reason. *G*

Yes! If they're going to postpone the return to Fairy indefinitely they really need stronger intermediate arcs to keep us interested/feeling like there's movement. I here we might get some of that with trying to solve the disappearance from the end of the last episode.

We can hope... I want a defined goal for her to be working toward!
