SCC 2x04

The last couple of eps left me with an uneasy feeling that the show was sitting on the fence between having strong female characters and Objectiftying Them Like Woah, but, yes, now I can see what all the fuss is about. Lots of intriguing stuff going on there, though when your final payoff gives me flashbacks to Lister teaching Kryten to lie then there's an issue somewhere, albeit probably in my head. And not just with Cameron, either: the revelation that Weaver has a backstory involving a husband and kid that stands up to Ellison's scrutiny complicates that in ways I hadn't anticipated (the simplest version is that she's taken over a real person's life, but somehow I doubt it's that obvious).

I'm not sure I'm in the place to seek out fic for this show yet, but there are epic AUs where those two crazy kids make it Alison-Cameron and Jody do go on the run together, aren't there?

I'm already tired of Virgin 1's "Summer Glau says 'This is Virgin 1'" idents though.

    I am bloody unhappy about the companions in this, even though no one died: The Martha/Mickey spoiler was true, then. BAH. That makes me…

  • End of Time spec

    Does anyone else think we're going to get a trial of the Doctor by the Timeys? It's one of the major old school tropes the new series hasn't been…
