Double Mars

LJ is back! Yay! I didn't check to see yesterday, because I watched, um, 14 episodes of Veronica Mars instead. And Torchwood. This probably explains why today I feel crap and have a headache.

But I loved the resolution of VM season two, and may start downloading season three. And Torchwood was quite good. Thoughts when I've watched it again, probably...

I've ordered Life On Mars because many people are pointing to it as an example of what Torchwood should be like, but isn't. Only £16 on play, whee! I was worried about having too much to watch, but that was before I mainlined VM all day. Oh, and I also ordered the first 13 eps of original Doctor Who, also for £16. I have given in. I've been claiming for years that I'll never watch oldWho, because it looked sucky, and the occasional episodes I'd seen made me laugh in derision. I'm hoping if I can build up a plot arc and love for the characters, it'll be better. There's a friend from school who will rip me to shreds if he ever finds out, though - I've given him a lot of hassle over the years for his Who love.

Oh, and in case people couldn't figure out my views on Saddam: Killing people is bad. Killing people for political capital is worse. That's what's being done here.

On the other hand, if they do end up killing him, I would probably support a public execution purely because it might deter some of the "he's still alive" conspiracies. And also so that people can see exactly what kind of barbarity they're supporting.

It's funny how "lets do the wank hand again" fits with the time warp theme...

Sorry, random.

Hah. Now I have weird but interesting crossovers in my head. I'm sure Captain Jack and Frank should meet up...

Some people are so bloodthirsty, I don't think a public execution would make them think it barbaric. Be more likely to make it into a reality TV show.

And less rantingly - yeah VM's resolution was fantastic. Feel the seasons may be a bit formulaic perhaps... I bet we get a big mystery in episode 1 next season that will be completely misunderstood by Sherrif Lamb, and finally solved in the final episode with the perpetrator almost killing Veronica.

SPOILER WARNING FOR READERS...

Didn't Lamb get blown up? Still, I'm sure there'll be someone else to do the misunderstanding :o)

MAYBE ALSO A SPOILER...

I didn't get the impression he was on the plane - just that he had ordered Keith not to fly with Goodman. I don't think he ever left Neptune, just gave his orders over the phone.

I like the finale as well, though I would have liked Beaver to have been a bit more remorseful about everything, rather than pure scheming psychopath...

I think if you are going to have an execution, it should be public, and barbaric.
Making concessions for a "humane" death only obfuscate the full horror of what you are infact doing. Also, they remove the only point I can even see in an execution, cathartic veangence for the population.

You scored as Greens. You should vote for the Scottish Green Party. The party is led by Shona Baird and Robin Harper. This left-wing party bases its policies on environmental issues.

Hmm. I have to say I didn't think I was a green person. I don't do enough recycling to qualify, I don't think.
