Well. Waters of Mars MESSED ME UP, guys. And seeing as I'm anticipating that The End of Time (grrr, I hate that name) is going to mess me up even more, I've decided that between now and Christmas (5-6 weeks I think) is going to be spent watching (...and rewatching, and re-re-watching) Star Trek (2009) on DVD.

I figure that if I concentrate on ST to the point where I can recite every line, that ought to get me back to a point of not being terrified of the Doctor any more.

(I might also break it up a bit with Heroes, Gossip Girl and FlashForward, just for the variety.)

Must get this essay written. MUST get this essay written.

I don't even know WHY I'm procrastinating, it's 4000 words on science fiction TV! That's my favourite genre... and Star Trek and BSG, specifically, which should make it even better! Unfortunately I keep wanting to go WATCH the shows instead of WRITING about them, GRRR.

OK, going to crack down now. 500 words down, 3500 to go.... I can totally do that.

BTW, did you know that Star Trek basically started as one big reaction to the Vietnam war? 'Cause I do.... and I've seen the ORIGINAL, 1978 BSG movie, too. I can now honestly say that I ship Starbuck/Apollo... IN BOTH INCARNATIONS. OH, HELL YES. (Seriously, I mean... Richard Hatch isn't exactly unattractive NOW, but THEN... WHOA.)

Just been watching one of the extras on my Star Trek TOS dvd...

and I think I ship Scotty/Uhura now. So... yeah.

Also just watched "City on the Edge of Forever". Which might be my favourite of all the TOS episodes I've seen so far.

... I've seen Star Trek (2009) four times now.


...


I'm doomed. Then again, I don't think I care.

(I maintain that this is all Karl Urban's and Anton Yelchin's fault for being AWESOME and UNBEARABLY ADORABLE respectively.)

Six months ago, if you'd asked me if I was a Trekkie, I'd've said no.

If you asked me the same question now, I'd say HELL YES.

This is partly because I've been watching the Original Series on DVD, and partly because I've just seen The Movie. Yes, the one with Zachary Quinto.

AND I LOVED IT.

Vague spoilery things here )

I'm loving Dollhouse at the moment. This week, say, was good because a) Boyd was all cool and badass and b) Agent Helo Ballard is awesome and c) those two scenes of Topher and Doc Saunders.

I swear, Joss ships those two. There'd better be some kind of (probably very hesitant) romance-y type of stuff at some point.

(I think there will be. Having seen all Joss's other shows, I think I have a pretty good idea of how he sets up relationships.

In other words, just look at Kaylee and Simon. Or Wes and Fred.)

Also those scenes were rather funny.

In a completely unrelated note...

When I went to see Watchmen recently, they showed the Star Trek trailer beforehand. And you know, I think that movie might actually make me a fan.

(I should point out that until now, all I knew was from watching occasional episodes as a kid.)

Also, based purely on the trailer, I think I see why the Kirk/Spock ship exists.

A world without Star Trek would mean no Spock.

This means that JJ Abrams' new ST movie would not exist, and hence Zach Quinto would not be able to play Spock.

This would be a terrible, terrible thing.
