Not at all sure where my week went this week. That's okay, though, I'm still happy to see you, Friday!

I know that for a lot of my flist, the news is just a blip, but I am seriously bummed about SGU's cancellation. I manage to watch about three new-broadcast shows at any given time - I just can't keep up with more - and this was one of my three right now, and I am going to miss it. I think the cast is fantastic, I have really enjoyed the storytelling, and even though the style was quite different, I love the depth that knowing about some of the other people and places gives the gateverse for me. I really hope the actors all go on to find great new projects.

On a related note, I have to say that I am going to miss having some sort of space drama on my regular watch list big time. I think this article sums up how I feel about the direction SyFy's taking now. There's also some meta in my head about how I think grittier, angstier shows like SGU (BSG, Caprica, and lots of other non-scifi shows) really aren't what people want to watch right now, because everyone's feeling a little bombarded with bad news all the time. At the same time, in a post-BSG scifi market, I am not sure people would still watch the sort of optimistic, hope-for-the-future kind of space drama that carried the Star Trek franchise for so long. So I think it's a very fine line to walk for that sort of show right now. Anyway, it's just a collection of musings and I reserve the right to change my mind in about five minutes.

But (upon having someone tell me that since I wouldn't be watching SGU after this season, I should definitely have time for Castle *g*), I would just like to say that what I would *really* love to have show up on my TV is a crime procedural in space. Why does this not exist? Does this exist? This should exist. I would definitely watch it. Fighting crime at warp speed! Why not?

In other news, delicious shutting down is like a fannish mini-apocalypse for me. That's actually been my first stop for finding fic in non-gateverse fandoms for a while now - you know, when I have the occasional 'I must read every decent fic in existence for [insert rare pairing here] in [insert fandom that I don't know anyone who follows here]'. Usually it's like 15 fics or something before I either run out or burn out my interest, and so it's a lot easier to follow links there than to scour for recs in individual journals. Anyone have any suggestions for which other bookmarking sites have a decent-size group of folks of the fannish persuasion using them?

And that's it here. I shall now go back to my pre-Christmas, where-does-the-time-go panic. Happy Friday, flist!

Okay. So I was just poking around on my hard drive, trying to find a text file that has a post that I wrote half of yesterday and wanted to finish. It was really clever and witty! It would have impressed you all!

Actually, no. It had fannish questions to which I need answers and a lot of outrageous flattery so that you all would feel loved and therefore come give me answers.

I can't find it, but that's really not important.

Under here, more on hard disk archaeology, and the only one of the questions I actually care about in the short term )

(Now edited for much better icon!)

Also ETA: Any aggravation evident in the above list is totally directed at my own brain and not at anyone who has used Thor as an excuse for any activities whatsoever. *g*
