11 TV Characters I Love More Than Anything - Really, I just wanted an excuse for another meme. And every once in a while I list my top 10 hotties, but I did that not too long ago, and then AfterElton had a thing about 'TV characters you wanna marry', so I thought about that, but I realized that really, most of my favourite TV characters I don't necessarily wanna marry, so 'love more than anything' in this case mostly refers to how much affection I feel for them, how much watching them be awesome makes me all warm and fuzzy, how sad it makes me when they're miserable (tho of course there's a huge overlap with hotties and favourite shows etc). It's crazy how much I love these characters. Pictures under the cut!

OMG! So Sci-Fi TV & Talk has a new article/interview up with Amanda (via @atappingnews), and while she doesn't really say anything she hasn't already said elsewhere (I'm not even sure any of what she says is new?) it has PICTURES!! OMG!!!

A series of awesome hi-res pictures I haven't seen before of Amanda directing Veritas *WHILE WEARING GLASSES*!!! I cannot stress to you how important the glasses-wearing thing is. I had a moment where I *DIED OF GUH* and it hasn't really passed (which the all-caps might have clued you into by now)... *fans self* Glasses, people, *glasses*!!

Now, they're a bit protective of those pics, so I'm not gonna post them here, but here's a wee sample just to convince you how awesome this is!!:

HERE'S THE LINK TO THE REST OF THEM!: "Sanctuary’s Amanda Tapping – Bare Essentials"
Seriously, how hot is she in those glasses??? *guh*

Meanwhile, that question you always had about leprosy but didn't know who to ask? Now is your chance. My essay is well on its way, and [prediction removed to avoid jinxing]. Ask me anything.

Leave me a comment saying "Resistance is Futile."
I'll respond by asking you five questions so I can satisfy my curiosity
Update your journal with the answers to the questions
Include this explanation in the post and offer to ask other people questions.

[livejournal.com profile] sakuracorr gave me these:

1. Sam, Helen, and Amanda - who do you marry, who do you shag, and who do you drop off a cliff?
Answer N/A due to BRAIN!FAIL. OMG! I can't drop Amanda off a cliff! I can't drop Helen off a cliff! I can't drop Sam off a cliff either! Waaaah! *shortcircuits* (The shagging one would totally be Helen, though. *guh*) The *pain*! The Pain is excruciating!

2. The network execs have given you the opportunity to completely control one episode of one show, which show and what do you do with the episode?
Sanctuary. Naturally. Now, I suck at case-fic, so I'd get someone to write it for me. But there would be some sort of exciting case where Will and Helen are stranded somewhere (let's make it a tropical island because I love sunshine and water and everyone will have to wear less clothing and let's make it small so that they can't really avoid each other) with a couple played by Teryl Rothery (as a more ditzy, less Fraiser character and she's some sort of cool not-obvious abnormal and Helen "forgets" to tell Will about it) and Claudia Black (as less Vala and more dry sarcastic humor and not because I don't love Vala, I do, but because it's cool to see them play different, too) and Helen has at one point or another been involved with both of them, and perhaps both of them together (it's not made clear but definitely implied), and it's not necessarily over yet. There will be lots of action and danger and excitement and some good Helen/Will 'we're *friends* and I trust you but I'm still superior to you and not entirely comfortable with you trying to shrink me' moments and some awkward 'stuck on an island with your ex' moments. At the end they're rescued by chopper, and Will tries to talk to Helen and she pretends not to hear him, because she's a wee bit embarrassed about the ex thing, because Teryl and Claudia (who, as it turns out, had the means to save themselves, they just had to solve the Case first) have threatened promised to come visit the Sanctuary at some point in the future.

Why I didn't chose the alternate storyline that righted that wrong at the end of 2x02 )

3. The world explodes into war and you can only live in a country that starts with a vowel, where do you live?

4. If there were a musical episode of your favourite show right now, what song would the MC sing?
Oy. Helen Magnus would sing All My Exes Live In England to the tune of George Strait's All My Exes Live In Texas.

5. What author would you really like more books from what now?
From what now? Laurie R. King, Martinelli series, please.

OMG epiphany!! Heh. I start off by saying how much I prefer writing, and then I completely fail at writing a coherent post.

which is why there's a cut, under here are ramblings about the directing-epiphany I had the other day... references Sanctuary 2x07, but no spoilers, I promise )

Also, Meredith Baxter came out yesterday! OMG! I had *such* a crush on her when I was little. For a good two months when I was around 10, Elyse Keaton was the prettiest woman in the whole wide world. I had friends who were like 'I wanna be cool like Mallory!', or 'Alex is so cute!', and I was all 'My favourite scene was that one with Elyse in the kitchen, because she's the prettiest woman alive!', only I didn't say that out loud. See, again, I had no idea I was gay, but I was vaguely aware of the fact that it was best to keep such opinions to myself. And she's gay. Which makes my inner child just die of *swoon*. And more grown-up me is pissed off that she was forced to come out but also in awe of the graceful way she handled it. Go Meredith!

The Seven Wonders of Helen Magnus of Sanctuary

Read about them under here! )


And I wanted ask if there are any SG-1 / Samantha Carter / Amanda Tapping fans on my f-list? Because I've never really done the Stargate thing, and I'm not quite ready to sit down and watch Carter's 230 TV/movie appearances, so can anyone point me in the direction of good interesting significant Sam Carter-centric episodes of Stargate?

Well, Helen Magnus seems to have, for the time being, effectively gotten me over Olivia Benson. For some reason. I really really like this show. I'm still looking forward to Wednesday and the new SVU, but I'm looking forward to Friday and the new Sanctuary more. And why those two are connected, but Christina on Dexter come Sunday remains unaffected, I have no idea.

Anyway, my new Sanctuary wallpaper:

Some random comments on what I've been watching lately - no spoilers!

OMG Amanda Tapping. Space shows are generally not my thing, and neither are blondes with short hair, so I never really got into SG-1, but now that she has the long dark hair and a weird British accent and cool research facilities? OMG. Yum. And she's a 157 years old, and there are mysterious abnormal beings and ancient orders and cool weapons and a lot of fighting. This show is absolutely awesome. Especially since Blood Ties is cancelled, I've been wanting something a bit paranormal and full of adventure. Definitely a keeper.

I've so far only watched the pilot, but I've heard it gets better. Nathan Fillion is always hilarious, and his relationship with his family is a lot of fun. Kate Beckett was a little annoying in the pilot, too easily flustered for a cop. But I've heard that it gets better, so I plan to give it a few more chances.

Modern Family
To be honest I'm not entirely sure why I'm watching this. It's not *that* funny, although it's pretty funny, and there's no-one on the cast that I'm particularly watching it for (although that blonde mom is kinda cute). It'll be one of the first to go if I suddenly get less time than I've had these last few weeks, but it's nice having a half-hour funny show next to all the mystieries/crime dramas.

Flight 29 Down
I accidentally watched a few episodes several years ago, and kinda like them, so when I came across the DVDs on sale I bought them. And it's a sweet sweet show. Kiddie Lost, basically, and they're being kids and learning lessons about life and responsibility and friendship and it's so very educational (yet slightly off-base with the actual nitty gritty of survival fairly often) and it's got palm trees and warm beaches, and it's comfort watching. The best kind.

Crocodile Dundee
I still have a crush on Linda Kozlowski. Why hasn't she worked since then? (Well, there was that one horror movie, but I hate horror movies. *pout*)

Stargate Universe
Not much to say about the last episode (1x03), except that 'Oooh, was that Anna Galvin again, as the senator's wife???'. It sure looks like her! She's very pretty. I'd like to see her in a more prominent role somewhere.

Not a show I've ever watched before, but I'll be watching this Sunday because Christina Cox is guest starring!!! A pretty significant role, if the promo is to be believed. And she looks awesomely kick-ass as well! Yay!! (But why have they flipped that shot in the promo of her shooting? I don't see how that makes any difference...)
