Now I am a self-confessed sci-fi geek, and much to Furtle's horror, an inveterate hoarder and collector.

But there are limits!



Rotten conversationalist, but good at clearing queues at the bus stop or train station. May carry the shopping and walk the dog...

Edited to add: It is life size and at current exchange rates plus VAT (but excluding shipping from the States), would cost around £4,800.

You really wants?

After last week's fun with the torrents, they behaved impeccably this week and I managed to down load episode 3 over night.

Whilst Miss Furtle sleeps contentedly in the other room, I have just sat in front of my lappie (the desktop PC is deader than dead - no longer even trying to boot)and watched it. Things are moving a pace nicely and I rather envy those of you who have yet to watch it,because it's a corker. I can barely wait until next week's episode is out, though I remain baffled as to how they can keep up this level of drama week in, week out.

I would really love to froth about the bloody show, but I can't drop spoilers here. Suffice it to say that Battlestar Galactica remains the best TV SF I think I have ever seen. Damn it, it's amongst the best drama I've ever seen on TV.

Just go watch it, people.

I made time last night to watch the first two episodes of Battlestar Galactica season 3. Set four months after the events of the season two finale, it’s off to a great start and I see precisely why [livejournal.com profile] pax_draconis suggests having a pillow ready for the end of episode two (the effect was a little spoilt in my case as the torrent I’d downloaded had a short trailer for next week’s episode, but it didn’t give too much away. I hope).

I’m never quite sure who’s seen what, so here’s a spoiler-hiding cut. )

What else? Oh yes. Next time I leave work early to watch an England game again, on the grounds that they can’t possibly play that badly twice in a row, remind me that whilst that sentence is strictly true, it does not preclude them from playing worse, which is what they did.

Stupid own goals.

Still, Battlestar, eh? If you aren’t watching, you should be.

I have just watched the season 2 finale of Battlestar Galactica.

Once again, I am stuck because I don't want to drop any spoilers on those of you who are watching it on Sky, and who have most of the season left to go. Suffice it to say that the episode is longer than the usual 45 minutes, and for good reason. The series has a history of throwing up situations and leaving you to wonder how the hell they are going to get out of it this time, how it can possibly get worse.

I was worried for a couple of episodes that the writers had lost their way, but now I am happy to believe that they know what they're doing. But I really, really have no idea how they can possibly get back from this one.

Roll on season 3.

I will make one final observation, which gives nothing away: Bad Gaius. Naughty boy, no biscuit.

I'm back up to date with Galactica again - I watched episode 15 tonight (not last night, too tired). When I said it's back before? Now it's back.

[livejournal.com profile] mr_h_r_hughes, you mentioned that you were looking for some frakking Starbuck - Cylon guns-blazing action?

Season 2, episode 15.

I have just watched the week before last's Galactica, and a little later I shall watch last Friday's episode.

Ah, but it's leapt out of the slough it seemed to be sliding in to. It's back.

Good stuff. You should watch it. No, really.

Before going to bed last night, I watched Friday's episode of Battlestar Galactica.

After last week's mild disappointment, I am happy to say that despite being a little contrived, stopping just short of a deus ex machina resolution to a long standing story line the drama was back, and events are beginning to build up again.

Bad Gaius. No biscuit.

Mmm. Watched episode 12 of Battlestar Galactica season 2.

For the first time I have come away a little disappointed by the resolution of the story segment. Never mind; including the pilot and season 1, that's the first time in over 25 episodes. Hopefully it will be back with a kick next week.

I watched my torrented copy of season 2, episode 11: Resurrection Ship Part 1 tonight.

All previous comments and observations continue to apply, but I only have to wait a week this time, before finding out what happens next.

In the end I did some more writing, but stopped around 8.15 to watch the premiere of Invasion on Channel 4. When it transpired that there would be a second episode at 10.00, I had to watch that, and then they let slip that episode 3 was being shown at 11.00 on E4... It's an interesting sense of paranoia they are beginning to build up already. Much of the behaviour of the potential baddies is very ambiguous and can be taken in more than one way. Quite clever. We'll see how it pans out.

So I didn't get any more writing done tonight. Ahem.

That said, I am only about five paragraphs away from finishing another sheet, so that will be two completed in a weekend and a bit. So, not bad progress, even if I do say so myself.

Tonight I shall be setting the torrents to download the latest episode of Battlestar Galactica so with any luck, this time tomorrow I shall know how the midseason cliffhanger resolved. I've been waiting since September, so I reckon I can wait a while longer.

Best go now, I have a few chores before bed time, and I have to be up for work in the morning even if I don't know if I shall be able to get in on account of the latest tube strike. The RMT really are a bunch of work-shy leftie skivers. They are well paid, have heaps of holiday and strike if management look at them funny.

Useless bastards.

Goodnight, LJ land.
