So mostly this post is to say that GUYS, I just finished watching Continuum, and contrary to how slow the pilot is, THIS SHOW IS SO GOOD, OH GOSH.

I mean, there is zero femslash, because basically Rachel Nichols' character is the only female and she interacts with no dudes ever, but she is given this really lovely Noble Hero Trying To Go Home arc, and the way they are doing time travel (because guys: this show is about time travel) and the politics between the various past and present factions is very, very cool.

For those of you who are all WHAT IS THIS FUNNY CANADIAN PROGRAM OF WHICH YOU SPEAK, um. Basically it's a sci-fi series brought to you by the network that created Lost Girl, but with higher production value. It's about Kiera Cameron, who is a cop in Vancouver in 2077, until some terrorists send themselves BACK IN TIME, FOR EVIL and accidentally they go to Vancouver in 2012 and accidentally she goes with them, and then stuff happens. The entire show is basically gen, and revolves around EXPLOSIONS and CAN WE CHANGE THE FUTURE/WHAT IF WE ALREADY HAVE, but - I don't know. It's a really well-done, clever take on a concept that has been done a lot. I'd recommend watching it - it's only ten episodes, and what about CANADIAN TIME COP is not amazing, come on.

(Also possibly I have a soft spot for Kiera, whose interests are, in order: Family, Punching Terrorists In The Face, Horsies (THIS IS CANON), and Seriously Considering Awkwardly Making Friends, Maybe, With People From 2012. [livejournal.com profile] carmen_sandiego and I also have this theory that she is going to move to Vancouver Island in season 2 and develop a passion for baking organic spelt scones, but that may just be us.)

I think that all of you should watch it, so we can discuss how OH GOSH, TIME TRAVEL. We could also maybe discuss how I'd sort of like genfic featuring Kiera and Kellogg on that ridiculous boat, if you like. IT GIVES ME INFINITY LOLS.
pirateygoodness: mine. (lostgirl: aced the class on pretty hair)
Heeeeey fandom. Oh man, has it been a long while since last we spoke.

SOME THINGS.

1) I tooootally went to FanExpo and got to introduce/hang out with [livejournal.com profile] noblealice and [livejournal.com profile] carmen_sandiego, which was delightful. We got to be in a room with Zoie Palmer, who used the phrase "bakey smurf" in a sentence, as well as the rest of the Lost Girl cast who remain RADIANTLY BEAUTIFUL in person, oh good grief. I remain half-convinced that Anna Silk is a cylon, HOW IS SHE THE AGE THAT SHE IS AND THAT LOVELY FACE-WISE.

(I am still plugging away at my Lost Girl rewatch. I feel like I need to do a post that is just OH MAN GUYS REMEMBER WHEN THIS HAPPENED ON SEASON 2 OF LOST GIRL, NO SERIOUSLY, THEY ACTUALLY MADE THIS AN EPISODE OF REAL TV.)

We also went to the Continuum panel, despite all of us having seen maybe half the show between us, and they kind of sold me on watching their show. Guys, it is actually, like, super good. Future Cop Rachel Nichols has a lot of feelings but also shoots things, and while I wish there were more women, I like what they're doing with the whole time travel concept. Also: Canada.

2) HEY SPEAKING OF TIME TRAVEL. I am watching Dr Who this season, mostly so that when they inevitably kill Amy Pond in a horrible flash of firey space-time death, I can be quietly outraged without getting spoiled for it. And then I can quietly hold a grudge against the next companion, who I'm sure will be perfectly lovely but won't be Amy Pond.

(I had this problem waaaay back in the day when Martha was a companion and they wrote her off. This show. Me + female characters. Etc.)

3) I remain really, super invested in Warehouse 13. Like, a lot.

cut! spoilers for season 4 through episode 4.06, 'fractures' )

ALSO I STILL WANT CLAUDIA TO RUN INTO KENZI SOMEWHERE IN TORONTO AND BECOME HER BFF.

4) THIS IS A PLACEHOLDER. HAVE WATCHED NEARLY ALL OF NIKITA (CW, Maggie Q & Evil Julie Cooper). PLANNING TO SCRAWL "NIKITA TOTALLY LOVES ALEX 4EVA" ALL OVER THE BATHROOM WALLS.

ALSO THIS ONE TIME THERE WAS AN EPISODE WHERE KENZI WAS AN EVIL RUSSIAN SEX-WORKER. ALSO ALSO THERE WAS ANOTHER EPISODE WHERE DOCTOR LAUREN WAS AN EVIL MAYBE ALSO RUSSIAN WEAPON BUYER.
