I'm still running after my scattered thoughts with a butterfly net.

I need to ramble about Ben Linus for a while )

Digressing slightly, it saddens me that Michael Emerson isn't from the UK and so will almost certainly never get to play the Master. What I wouldn't give to have him opposite Matt Smith's Doctor.

I Love You, Lost!

I loved the finale. I really, really did.

No other thoughts today. Thoughts tomorrow. Love today.

OMG I just realized. )

Fox renewed my show! My shoooooooooooooooow! Another season of improbable action scenes, BSG cameos and weekly felonies!

I'm actually thrilled with a Fox decision. This is a strange and wondrous new world.

I do! But before I get to the flailing and the ranting (V fans, you may want to skip that section) I think the internet at large needs to be aware of this: apparently in Switzerland you can hire an evil clown to stalk your children. I am not even kidding. Oh, and here's a quote from Clowns International (ohdeargodnowclownconventionsImayneversleepagain): "I think what Dominic[the guy dressing up as the evil clown] is doing is a great idea," he added. "Bringing a little bit of life and laughter into kids’ lives is what we are all about."

Yes. Life and Laughter. And therapy. So much therapy. (Any fellow clown fear sufferers, said evil clown is pictured in full regalia. Learn from my trauma!)

On to said shows, Human Target first:

spoilers for 1x12, Christopher Chance )

If my show doesn't get renewed I will be so, so upset.

Now for Lost!

Spoilers for 6x11, Everyone Loves Hurley )

I guess I can't put off talking about V any more. In a way it's almost a bad thing that Lost is so good week in and week out because V just suffers more by comparison. Also, its CGI continues to be terrible.

I'm still having trouble coming up with Lost thoughts that aren't "Oh, Ben" or "Oh. Oh, Ben.

spoilers for Dr. Linus )

In celebration of a fabulous Ben episode, here's a video celebrating Ben's greatest...um, hits.:)

It's been too long since we've had a good Lockisode.

Don't tell spoilers what they can't do )

It always takes time to form Lost thoughts that aren't just strings of !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Thoughts and theories )

Thinking about alt-timelines has made me realize the one way DC could bring me all the way back: reveal that Superboy Prime punching the prison walls not only switched dead!Jason with alive-and-surly!Jason, but switched our Maxwell Lord with some other, more evil universe's (probably the Crime Syndicate's Earth, considering his feelings about meta-humans.) All would be forgiven if we found out our Max has been stranded there all this time, trying to survive and wondering why his friends haven't come to rescue him.

Yeah, I thought I'd come to grips with the Max-turns-to-the-Dark-Side thing, but clearly not.

This is completely without context and so not a spoiler: "I'm sorry you had to see me that way" may be the greatest single line of dialogue ever spoken. When you see the episode you'll understand.

Is anyone out there a big fan of the current Blue Beetle, Jaime Reyes? Because if so I have many questions and need to pick your brain. Please? It's for a good cause. (Really!)

Eight years ago the sun still felt like August and there wasn't a cloud in the sky. Today is cold and raining and windy, and it feels so much more appropriate to the day than that terrible, scorching, empty blue.

I never lived in New York (although I worked there briefly), but I used to take the PATH into Chinatown all the time. A few weeks before 9/11 I was on the WTC train making an anime run before the fall semester started. The car was crowded and while I had a seat, not everyone did; among the standing was a group of four or five sharp-dressed, Japanese businessmen and women and I spent most of the ride quietly listening to them all speak in Japanese and trying to pick out words I knew. (Because deep down I am that kind of otaku.:) We all got out at the same stop, me walking down to Canal street and them heading towards WTC.

A few days after the attack I was in the Hoboken PATH station; for those who weren't in the area, for weeks after most of the walls of the PATH were covered with Missing flyers for people who were never going to be found. One of these flyers were of a young Japanese woman in a business suit, and I spent about five minutes staring at it trying to remember if she was one of the people I'd been eavesdropping on in that PATH car. I'll never know if she was, or if any of the other people in that group made it out.

But I think of her every year, and of all of the other people I'll never share a PATH train with or pass on the street again.

We still remember.

"Jack realized that he and Locke needed each other."

Thank you, mysterious Lost recap narrator. Thank you.

I am just the definition of tired right now. Go ahead, look it up. See the little picture, the chickie with the glasses watching Colbert? Yep. That's me.

I'm still not used to this whole high-speed internet thing. Going from dial-up to cable, it's such a big difference I feel like I want to download the world. No BBCA on the IO? Not a problem! The interwebs will provide! No longer does it take a half hour to watch a video on You Tube! This is exactly what it would feel like to finally see the sailboat.

I'm bouncing in between two Heroes fics right now; one is literally three paragraphs from done and being sent for betaing, but has nonetheless stalled to a creaky stop that I'm determined to bludgeon it out of tomorrow. The other one I was having a problem, but I think I may have fixed the block by switching POVs. This may be progress. Hopefully. Maybe after these two Claude will stop hijacking my brain long enough for me to finish the Jack fic I've been working on.

Lost tomorrow! I'm so psyched. I didn't realize how much I missed that show until I started seeing the commercials. Nineteen hours until Locke! Yay!

Oh, and here's a fic rec, courtesy of [livejournal.com profile] crack_van: Forgetting the Nightmare by [livejournal.com profile] casirafics, Nine/Jack, R (which is harder than I'd rate it. There's sex, but it's not at all explicit). Jack settling into the TARDIS in between "The Doctor Dances" and "Boomtown" is one of my favorite kinds of fic, and this is wonderfully done. Sharp characterizations and a perfectly enigmatic, alien Doctor. Highly recommended.

So, wait...the beautiful guy who sang "Night and Day" in De-Lovely was John Barrowman? Captain Jack? And no one told me this? Fie on my poor facial memory! *makes a point to acquire DVD tomorrow*

spoilers for Lost )

Ooh, the Doctor's tormenting Harry Potter on HBO! *goes to watch*

ETA: I just love the scene where Barty Jr. tries to sidle out of the trial room.
