the woes of technology and design progession







Okay, so I am just a little bit jealous of people who can use cinema 4d with such proficiency. *oggles* DAMN THAT IS SOME HOT SH!T.

One has got to hate the pace at which technology is progressing now a days. And intimidated. Don't forget intimidated!

House - Pros:

Once upon a time I loved this show because it was smart, challenging, informative, cynical, and angsty. It didn't sugar-coat the realities of life.

The intricacies of main character's thought process. You want to know this person and you want to believe that in the end, he is the kind of person you'd respect for his brilliance. I have so much respect for Hugh Laurie as an actor.

House - Cons:

Lately House seemed to have gone down the shitter quite frankly. Its really only a shell of its glory-days. I think I've already spent so much energy ranting and raving about all the negatives on this show that I'll spare you the details.

House - Ship:

AH! DUH...House/Cameron. I wish I cared to elaborate. :(

Alias - Pros:

Original and a very fast paced storyline. The transitioning from storyline to storyline although confusing, never left me bored or less intrigued.

Alias has this uncanny ability to never leave the confines of "reality" and still have that fictional charm to it. How cool is it to see a show that is so grounded in reality even when what its really striving for is a ficitional "Da Vinci/Nostradamus" like character in a very Dan Brown way. Conspiracy lives! And so do good ol' fashioned office romances.

Great chemistry between all actors. I think Alias captured the main character's relationship with all the other characters in a way, House lacked. For instance, Sydney's relationship with her father, with Sloane, with Francie, even her sister, and definately Vaughn.

Alias - Cons:

I hate season 5! And not just due to the severe lack of Vartan-lessness. I think the last season and a half lacked everything I loved about this show. It felt like they went through a major restructuring due to JG's pregnancy and didn't know what to do with the "Rambaldi" storyline at times. And sometimes it seemed really badly put together. I think in the end all they wanted was to end it "satisfactorily" for the loyal fans (read: syd/vaughn fans) because they've built that relationship up over the course of years. It still left a really bitter taste in my mouth on how they came about it.

I don't even want to start with how the epic potential of "Rambaldi" storyline was destroyed in the series finale. Heck, I even liked the season 4 crack finale over series finale!

I feel like ALIAS ran a season and 30 seconds too long! They should've given that extra season, to say... FARSCAPE!!!

Alias - Ship:

SYDNEY VAUGHN! They are SO destined to be together that even when they have a one night stand, they have it with eachother. So meant to be, that their "taking it slow" defies the "no sex" rule! I mean come on the chemistry and the guilty!spysex. *lusts* Not to mention this ship is the ONLY ship I know thats already foreshadowing how they'd end up -- RIGHT IN THE NAME OF THE SHIP!!!

Battlestar Galactica - Pros:

Of course my favourite show of all time HAD TO BE scifi because I am a sci-fi ho. This was really difficult because I had to pick between Farscape, Firefly, Heroes, Stargate, and BSG. In the end I think I admire the current "socio political" issues that are brought up in the this show far too much to let them be overshadowed by amazing-fx in Farscape and Firefly.

Like all good shows BSG posseses a great cast and awesome rapport between cast mates on screen. Katee Sackhoff's starbuck trumps the 70's starbuck and I've had many debates about that with a friend of mine who loved the old bsg. Suffice it to say, he didn't change my mind. ;) Katee Sackhoff plays starbuck to perfection and I also adore all the cylons and adamas.

But most importantly, I love how this show depicts heroism and those "grey" areas when concerned with right/wrong. How it depicts people's desperation and need to survive in an end of the world kind of situation. And how that affects/shifts power, the economy, and basic human needs.

Battlestar Galactica - Cons:

For me the biggest fear is that BSG won't carry out its winning streak. For some reason I feel like they wont be able to translate their progression into the last season. I guess I'll wait and see!

Usually BSG is very good with character development but sometimes the interrupted flash-backs seem too "convenient."

Battlestar Galactica - Ship:

None but I do like the dynamic between Kara/Lee as well as Six/Baltar. Of the two, Six/Baltar are just more interesting. They had the advantage of having an upper hand in that undercurrent of objective and sense of mystery. That was until last season finale. Gotta love Starbuck's reprisal! *swoons*
