Being Human: Arriving last week of January '09

ganked from [info]nick730 at [info]toveylove

According to the latest BBC Press Release, Being Human will start broadcasting the week of 26th January 2009. It's currently marked as "unplaced," i.e. they haven't confirmed the exact day and time of transmission yet, but I'm guessing we'll hear that soon.

Demons review and the Eleventh Doctor

Demons s01e01: They Bite

This could be a fun little bit of crack. )

Overall it was a passable enough first outing, plenty of plot holes to make you go WTF?! It's produced my the Merlin folks, so I'm hoping that like Merlin it just gets better as it goes along.

The Eleventh Doctor

I'm going to reserve judgment on him until we see hi in action. The clips they showed of his previous work, made him look serviceable enough, if a little too Tennant rel. 1.2. But then Who is big business now and there's a lot riding on the selection, not just in the UK but it's worldwide implications.

For those who've said the BBC doesn't care about American ratings I offer this:

New 'Torchwood' toned down for US market

and

BBC drama topper Jane Tranter is relocating to Los Angeles as joint head of BBC Worldwide’s North American production biz.


Don't kid yourself, the BBC very much cares about worldwide markets. )

Whether it's the writing or the show-running or the acting or what, Who seems to be hitting the same notes over and over. It's cracky and amusing enough, fun enough, that right now I don't mind. But the Christmas special really brought a lot home for me, warts and all. I'm ready for the next phase.

* It's heresy, I know.

My tongue should catch your tongue's sweet melody

Review: Were the World Mine




The premise of Were the World Mine is romantic comedy trope: character A yearns for the love and affection of unattainable character B, then though a series of hi-jinks, true love wins in the end. That is about where the comparison ends as everything else is turned on its ear in Tom Gustafson's big screen adaptation of his own short film Fairies.

The film's tagline, ‘If you could make someone love you, would you?’ Is honestly, unexpectedly answered, "Obviously."

fic: Vigil

Title: Vigil
Fandom: Merlin (BBC)
Word Count: 1239
Characters, pairings: Merlin/Arthur, maybe implied Will/Merlin
Rating: PG (?)
Warnings/Spoilers: Spoilers through s01e10 'The Moment of Truth'
Summary: Arthur and Merlin hold vigil over Will's body, and talk during the ride back to Camelot.
A/N: What I thought should happen during the episode, missing scenes, if you will. In part prompted by [info]anothersuperboy. Probably could have used a brit-check, but it was supposed to be a drabble.

snippet: Arthur would even go so far as to walk in. Standing behind Merlin, he would fidget, and finally cough; making Merlin notice that he was there. He would leave satisfied, only to repeat the ritual an hour later.

and another thing...

Never underestimate the Democrats ability to self-sabotage. Someone needs to tell Schumer, Frank and Kerry to go the eff away.

I believe Obama can bring real change, and we can get back to the prosperity we had with the Clintons.

I have to hope for something.

The GOP has been hijacked by the religious right, fiscal conservatism is dead. Go look at the National debt.

We need new parties and new choices, but first we have to get the Republicans out. The Old Guard screwed up. If this McCain was the same McCain from 2000, I'd vote for him! But he sold out in order to get elected and now he's losing.

McCain doesn't deserve to win.

That's it from me today, cheers, thanks a lot.

fretting

I've been trading LJ comments with someone who works in the same hotel I do. It looks like after the first of the year we will start seeing layoffs. Outside of the entire hotel closing, she and I will probably still have jobs; we are both union reps and that moves us into first position of seniority.

It's really scary stuff. If people at our hotel start losing their jobs, people all over the city will be, and that isn't good news. We will be in the midst of a depression.

Mind you I'm hoping this is alarmist, the person the news comes from is a drama queen. I hope only a few people get laid off. This person predicted layoffs a year ago that never happened. He covertly threatened and employee with it. Our hotel is in Times Square so I think/hope/pray most of us will be okay, but there will definitely be some trimming. I'm thinking at least one or two from the AM and PM restaurant shifts will be cut. One or two from the cocktail staff, and maybe one bartender shift. As I said scary, and we've got two months now to obsess over it.

The union is even holding financial seminars for people concerned for their 401ks. They know the worst is yet to come I think.

I'm playing worst case scenario in my mind trying to be prepared for the worst, but hoping for the best.

I cannot begin to communicate my anger at Bush and the Republicans for getting us into this mess. And their concerned about a Democratic majority and Democratic president? Mother Fucker, please.

Fic: Whither Thou Goest



Title: Whither Thou Goest
Rating: NC-17
Pairing: Will Scarlett/King Richard
Genre: Slash, Crossover fic: Robin Hood BBC/Heroes & Villains: Richard the Lionheart
Spoliers: post- RH s02e13 "We Are Robin Hood!" post- “Heroes & Villains: Richard the Lionheart”
Disclaimer: Not my characters, but it is my fic.
Word count: 3,778
A/N: This is pure fanwank on my part. Granted series two of RH ended like crap, and the two shows did cross over so, it’s really their fault. The same actor played the ‘remarkably identical’ looking characters and it all rolls from that. Started out as a pr0n drabble and here I am almost four thousand words later. I could have continued rewriting but at some point, you have to let it go and be done with it. I’m sure it’s highly anachronistic.

Morning update

Off today, planning on watching TV, reading comics, and writing pr0n.

Yay pr0n!

When all the dust settles it may have been McCain's temperament that cost him the campaign.
