So everyone and their mother has seen the episode so we all know what happened. I’m not going to do that, but you know I am full of opinions and I’m about to share them all with you.

For all the ridiculous mission impossible jailbreak scenes as awesome as they were, this wasn’t about the explosions and guns and car chases no matter how much it tried to tell us it was, this was all about the characters we have loved and sometimes learned to love and their struggle to hold it all together.
There was not one mediocre performance in this episode, love them or hate them every one of those actors really pushed each other this episode.

cut because I'm mouthy and spoily )

So I've got a lot going on and a lot not going on, some dot points and questions might explain it all.

*I'm so time poor that the only place I'm even briefly checking is LJ, yes I'm on all the other places (Facebook, Twitter, Tmblr, Myspace - you name it I'm there) but if you seek me and I'm not answering it's because I haven't seen it. If you really need me hit me up on LJ I'll see it eventually.

* SO I've delved back into school. Currently working on a Bachelor of MultiMedia/Marketing (yes the bastards at Uni changed it's name) and a Diploma of Tourism.

* Am really behind on a lot of my stuff, most pointedly my 100 things posts. Will be getting onto that asap.

* Currently have three Bang sized fics almost finished, two almost at let the beta tear them apart stage. and also 30+ smaller fics.

* also brain is being eaten by the concept of hiatus project of rewriting S2 the way it should be but unless I can sort a way to turn it into a comm event/challenge it won't happen before the start of season 3. Which will make me sad.

* Have had some things going on that have made parts of being on line a pain in the ass so I've been avoiding it somewhat. If I've missed anything can y'all point me in the right direction?

* Friend may need some help in June so I may be off to my favourite place in the world - no it's not Disneyland, for a couple of weeks in June.

* have been mainlining two TV programs. Supernatural during the day and Stargate Atlantis at night. Have developed quite the thing for Joe Flanigan and Jason Momoa. Am currently seeking out Sheppard/Ronon fic, am not sure if this is a good thing or a bad thing. Also really resisting the urge to write super porny ficlet in said pairing.

* While I'm on the confessions thing I have two more, and they are part of the same confession so here goes. I don't appreciate movies that are based on comic books. Why I don't know, I just don't never have and I'm hoping the Avengers will break that mold but I'm not holding out hope. Also, while on the subject of the Avengers, lets talk about Jeremy Renner shall we? I don't get it. At all. Somebody please apprise me of WTF it is about him that has y'all off your nuts about him, because I don't see it.

* God help me I've started plotting out an original manuscript. Where I fit that in I'm not sure, but I'm going to do what I can to make it happen. I think it helps in my head that I'm aiming for the schmaltzy romance market, but whatever works right?

So, over the next few weeks I'm going to be scarse.

At 4am tomorrow I'm up (which is cruel, that's normally bed time) to prep the old girl to be at the airport by 5.30am.

Why you ask? Because Jetstar in all their Qantas affiliated wisdom has cancelled the sensible flight at the civilised hour of 11am and jammed me on the 7.30am flight and because the parental has a wheelchair we need to be there at Dawn's Ass crack.

The best part, we're going an an Elvis Cruise. A four day cruise on a boat filled with Elvis impersonators, vegas showgirls and rabid blue rinsed Elvis fans in rock and roll regalia. I feel I am going to spend four days in a lovely Mai Tai mist, either that or I will be chewing my arm off to get away.

The Fun part is when I get back from that two days later I'll be off on a fun cruise and then spending some time in Hawaii, so that is win/win no?

Anyway, the whole point to this post, don't do anything I wouldn't while I'm away.

Chron's Review

They Don't even feel the love. Skipper's looking for new digs, and Ken's already moved in with Blaine. The Dream house is looking sad.

and, more sneaky peeks at the Halloween Ep in this CBS spooky montage. Do I need to say, spoiler?

OMG! They hurt the Camaro!

So I have a question, there seems to be a metric crapload of people opposed to Lori. I have my own opinions and I know a lot of you share them. Before we start this is not character bashing, I'm just curious. I've never in any of my other fandoms had a character (a starter or introduced later) that seems so universally hated. Frankly I don't have the energy to deal with people that will argue with me because OMG she's the bestest thing that has ever happened to the show and the problem is that Steve is a misogynistic asshole, and I'm not going to argue because everyone has a right to their own opinion.

Now I know my reasons for being a) violently opposed to the character and b) not particularly caring for the actress either. However I'm curious to know why seemingly everyone else is so indisposed towards her.

Wanna share?

Y'all know me, I overthink the crap out of things.

I had a thought earlier. There are five members of the team now. We all know that right?

As much as I would dance joyfully in response they're not going to leave their new golden child to be the fifth wheel, they're not going to waste all the time they have invested in her. After all, she hasn't had nearly enough time on screen yet to integrate her into fuck up the team yet has she?

Here's what I think. Chin and Kono are going to stay the same, and Kono can think herself lucky that she doesnt get to play partner to Loribot. Danny however, he's another matter completely. They've set themselves up to at least temporarily move Danny in with Steve. So in the scary minds of a television writer, that gives them their job done. Steve and Danny together, it should give them one definite scene an episode together, right? That leaves the way clear for Danny to mostly partner up with Loribot, which would leave Steve footloose and fancy free and doing 'bosslike' things.

Up to 123 I would have argued that these guys couldn't fuck anything up that badly but then they got Rachel pregnant and everything for the most part went to hell in a handbasket.

so....that's what I think, what do you think?


Also, anyone else think my Steve icon up there shares a slight resemblance to Point Break Keanu Reeves?
