Sci-Fi Immersion...

Khrysten is unavailable for blogging purposes right now as she is currently involved in a program to immerse her self in everything Sci-fi... No, seriously. I know, I haven't blogged in...days. I've been a busy girl.

I watched 'Earth 2'. Done with that now. It's a pretty good show for all 21 episodes there were of it. I suggest the purchase of the DVDs...but if you do, know that the last two episodes in the set don't actually belong at the end. Kinda screwed with me for a minute, but then I figured out where in the story they actually did belong and everything was better.

Then I watched the first two seasons of Battlestar Galactica on DVD having been unable to watch the show on TV like a normal person due to dogs barking and hubby yapping in my ear. Awesome show (duh!). Love that Starbuck! There was also a lot of screaming at the TV in hopes that she and Apollo would just fuck and get it over with already...never happened. Also, having watched seasons 1 & 2, I am now kinda screwed since I'm up to season 3 but it just ended and re-runs are nowhere to be found on the Sci-Fi channel. How long am I gonna have to wait for the DVDs?

Watching it for the second time to catch all the stuff I missed the first time due to dogs barking, hubby yapping and college dropouts having impromptu keggers. Also working overtime (meaning my brain wont stop) on the Sci-Fi show BEG and I are working on.

Anyone know where I can get a good deal on the 'Babylon 5'? Watched parts of it back in the day (there was a boy involved) and liked what I saw from what I actually saw (there was a lot of groping and mauling going on). Would like to see the rest! Could get it at my Best Buy, but they never seem to have season 4 and when I ask them why, they just look me (a 26 year old girl in the Best Buy freaking out about 'Babylon 5' season 4 around eleven on a Tuesday morning) like I'm on something.

Drop me a comment if you have an idea or a suggestion on another Sci-Fi show I may enjoy. BEG is already trying to sell me on 'Farscape' and she probably will.

BTW: Here's what I've already watched and in the order they were watched...Firefly/Serenity, Space: Above & Beyond, Cleopatra 2525 (whatta hilarious disaster this was especially for Gina Torres. I would only suggest watching this if you have no other alternative in the Sci-Fi-verse and if you like to laugh hysterically), Earth 2, Battlestar Galactica Seasons 1 & 2

And since I should mention this now that I'm editing, very nearly the complete 'Babylon 5' (I'm missing the spin-off 'Crusade' but it will be ordered by the time I get to where it should be watched in the grand scheme of B5. Hell, who doesn't love Daniel Dae Kim?) arrived on my doorstep yesterday making me a very happy girl with a lot of TV time ahead of me!

I highly recommend "Firefly" the series and "Serenity" the movie, good story lines and a good plot, a bit of a shame they cut the series as it was just getting started. Let me know what you think.

Alita - I actually started with 'Firefly' (after nearly a year of BEG's insisting. Thanks BEG!), now owning both 'Firefly' and the movie 'Serenity' on DVD. Thanks for mentioning it though so we can reinderate what a great show it was and how it shouldn't have been cancelled!

Damn You FOX!
