wtf?

I just realized that I'm behind... why the Hell did I think episode 19 was the season finale?

I guess because that's when BSG ended... time to download more Terminator.

Everybody calm down... torrenting episodes takes time (and of course, they need to be in HD)

Comcast caps bandwidth per month so I can't do HD.

They implemented this back in the fall, then said there would be a meter online by January.

It is now April. Is there a meter? Of course fucking not.

Fuck them, goddamn liars.

Wow, I just watched the last two episodes... hot
  • Derek: fantastic... and very courageous for television. I can't remember a show that had the balls to have a main character's doom be so anti-climactic. Very well done.
  • There are two themes that I'm really liking about this show. The first is the extended list of similarities between John and Cromartie/Skynet. Both are the future leaders/masters, but are currently (in terms of the show) in their nascent stages. In the future, both are mysterious overlord figures that we hear about only through others. Both are being shaped by their own future selves in one way or another (although it is no longer obvious to me just what forces are working on Cromartie/Skynet). The other theme is this whole proxy war in the past. Ignoring some of the more silly aspects of the whole time travel thing, I actually think that the idea itself is very cool, and plays into this whole idea of John/Skynet playing some big chess game in the future.

This is some good shit imo

They really, really, really need to stick to a single time-line. That "other future" thing was a huge mistake, and we all need to just move on and act like it never happened.

I'm slightly worried that they're going to fuck the Derek story up by bringing in another one from an alternate alternate timeline.

That would just be... awful.

It's just such a mistake. The whole point is that they really are/always did change the future by coming back. It would nullify everything that everyone has done.
