Put the TV on while I was cleaning up this morning and XF was on Sky One at 11am. What the fork? It was Triangle anyway. Episode annoys the hell out of me now although I was charmed when I first watched it.

Mark Snow's music is infuriatingly intrusive. Hadn't really thought about it deeply until M mentioned it, although I had found it intrusive before.

But now that I *have* noticed it, I'm all "somebody please take that boy's synthesiser and put it under a steamroller". I have the same reaction with Smallville as well.

Shame really, since I actually liked the angst angels thing going on in S8. Was one of the few

Anyway, Triangle. The 1939 Scully... do we ever find out what she was actually called? (I'm assuming it wasn't "Scully" also.)

In other news, looks like I am going to get laid off in the worst media recession for more than 10 years. Told parents this, and got a load of utter shite off them, which, no matter how much I may deserve it, was not the most helpful of reactions -- and worse, it was unexpected.

Don't want to talk to anyone or do anything right now, and I must, I must. This is what comes of defining oneself by what one does rather than who one is.

I swear to God, I am about two hours away from being fitted with the white strappy jacket with all the buckles and carted off to the laughing house with all the other loopers.

It may all turn out well. But I have a doom-sodden feeling about it.

Going to watch Lord of the Rings, FINALLY. Then I am going to paint the plaster in the bathroom with PVA and put mastic around the bath. I know how to live the wild life.

Sean Bean had better be fit. That's all I'm saying.



So I had to do it. Watched new Farscape on Monday: Neener.

What can I tell you about 'Bad Day in the Diner at the End of the Universe' which is not spoily? Hmmm.

D'Argo looks *very* fetching in black. Loved the CGI. The bad guys in this ep were disgusting and annoyed the living shite out of me after about 15 minutes. Chiana and Crais were excellent in the scenes they had. The J/A dynamic was... strange but promising. Rygel rocked. Angst on the horizon.

I am intrigued for Thursday. Better remember to programme the damned video.

[/Neener].

Grargh. Fucking media slump. So sorry. I have my crossables crossed just in case all should suddenly turn out okay, but...grargh. Is the parental fruit-loopiness a case of "we're going to be mad as hell because we're worried" or just random "we're going to make you feel worse about a bad thing" nuttiness?

In other news...I liked the angst angels ("the "OO-eeeeh-ya--OOO" woman, as the MBTV recapper calls her) too. And Sean Bean is Da Fitness. Viggo Mortensen too, in an unwashed way. Ding-dong. I suspect you may reject Elijah Wood and Orlando Bloom as too pretty by half. I'm aware that not all women share my weakness for total pretty boys *g*.

Listen out for Mr Bean's see-sawing back and forth between dialect extremes. You'll love it. "We moost take oop the ring and use it against him!". "Tis a straaaaange faaate...that we should soofer so mooch over so small a thing". He's most noticeably Northern when he talks about not wanting to disappoint his Pa, I believe. Delightful. I have this wonderful mental image of the lords of Gondor all wandering round Minas Tirith in flat caps, supping Tetleys from the finest golden goblets.
