35 minutes till Matturday. SO EXCITED. Mofftiem has made me SO EXCITED about telly again, it's not normal.

HERE HAVE A GRATUITOUS REPOST:



You know I'll be posting that gif over and over again until EVERYONE acknowledges its greatness.

The only thing that saddens me is that Matturday coincides with Torchwood STILL being on the telly, for fuck's sake be over already. I don't want my friendlist tainted with wank about Miracle Day anymore, even the voyeuristic amusement factor has gone out of it now. Just die Jack, die.

BUT HEY IT'S MATTURDAY SO PLEASE BE FILLING MY FRIENDSLIST WITH MATTURDAY SQUEE AND SHUT UP ABOUT THAT OTHER THING.

Just in case you think I may have stopped following Miracle Day fandom all together (Yo, this is what I'm calling that show now, it saves typing and, you know, it makes a lot more sense this way.) I TOTALLY HAVEN'T.

Dudes, the Jane Espenson Ep 7 Jack's timeline continuity fail and her subsequent apologetic clueless twittering is the most hilarious thing to happen to this fandom since Jack made his grandson bleed out of every orifice for the sake of srs drama.

Should I watch episode 7, guys? I take it not much has happened since episode 1, so I should be good to go, yeah?

Lol.

I just saw a trailer for Miracle Day, whatever episode we're on now, I neither know nor care. So, I take it Gwen's doing another one of those talking heads "If anyone finds this video this is what we did and we're SO SORRY... " videos AGAIN? Why didn't Rusty just remake CoE to be longer and have less redeeming charm? Oh, no, wait, he did.

Franklin and Bash, tonight, guys. Not even a trailer for Torchwood can dampen my spirits on Franklin and Bash night.

So..

I didn't want to write this long Torchwood post I was planning on writing, because I didn't feel it was fair of me to judge the show based on one episode. I VOWED that before saying any more about Torchwood: Miracle Day, I would at least watch one or two more episodes to get more of a feel for what was going on. I still haven't watched any more than that single solitary episode and having read the reactions to Ep 5, I suddenly realised that I probably won't actually be watching another episode ever again. Which probably means I won't ever write about what the fuck Torchwood has turned into and how much it disgusts me. You'll just have to take all that stuff as read, I guess. Sorry about that. But don't worry, that Ianto phonespam thing is still happening, it's just been delayed by technical problems.

But hey, dudes, MD episode 5: EDGY, right? Glad I'm not watching that gratuitous shock horror shit. Don't let the door hit your arse. Etc.

Yes, I am working on a carefully worded post about what it is that's making me not want to watch Miracle Day. In the meantime, though, may I express one quick angry thought and it's this:

SERIOUSLY, IF I SEE ONE MORE LINK TO BARROWMAN GLEEFULLY TELLING EVERYONE ABOUT HIS NAKED ASS AND HIS NON-GRATUITOUS GAY SEX SCENES AND WHY WE SHOULD ALL BE WATCHING THAT SHIZ, after all that BULLSHIT go watch Supernatural, you're fetishising gay men PREACHING from RTD two years ago, I swear I will SMACK A BITCH. YOUR HYPOCRISY IS SHOWING, HONEY. PUT IT THE FUCK AWAY.

I should maybe stop reading the daily, but dammit I STILL LOVE TORCHWOOD (old skool) and I'm not about to drop out of the proceedings just because I don't want to watch Barrowman's naked arse humping.

Maybe they should start making two dailies? Really draw the line and split into factions? I don't know. Don't mind me.

I'd consider watching the second episode of Torchwood: Miracle Day tonight on the beeb, but Beany's still helping people whose house is falling down and Rick Stein is cooking something Spanish, so there's all those things needing to be watched. And to be honest, the other half downloaded it four days ago and that fact so far hasn't managed to tempt me, either. Ho hum. I have THOUGHTS about why this is the case, but they require me thinking about them to see if they make any sense. Ooh, prawns. Nice.

Aww.

Remember the days when Torchwood shit was fun and funny? I just friended (re-re-friended probably?) someone who referred to Miracle Day as PO-FACED DRAMA (yeah, you know who you are). DUDES, REMEMBER WHEN IT WASN'T ALL FUCKING PO-FACED DRAMA?

Like, ummm, why THE FUCK did I make this lolcat macro thing:























No, I'm not lj-cutting it, so don't even dare ask.

I have decided I AM going to do the second half of my IANTO JONES IS ON THE PHONE picspam which I never finished due to ennui. This is, of course, in honour of Torchwood: Same Shit Different Day, which, now that I know for sure I don't need to watch it, has left me with a lot of free time on my hands for the next nine weeks. Plus: IT'S IANTO FUCKING JONES I DON'T NEED ANY OTHER REASON.

Sorry about the capslocking, I'm not ragey or anything, just tired and not in the mood for bold and italic tags. It's been one of those days.

Ah, right, okay, look, guys, my friends, I love you all, I really do and I wish you loads of fun and squee and all those things that people do with telly that they're enjoying, but I thought that was AWFUL, and not GOOD AWFUL like Bonekickers, but GOD AWFUL like Outcasts awful.

I seriously, don't know what to do now, because a part of me was kind of hoping I might secretly enjoy it and I really did not. (The fact that that blonde chick's strange strangulated back of the throat and up the nose voice makes me want to pierce my eardrums with knitting needles didn't help, I must admit.) As I predicted, I don't like Gwen or Jack enough to want to find out what happens next. I don't want to piss people off by not liking it and not having any desire to watch any more, but I know I will and so be it. Not liking it in any way, has also made me sadder than I thought it would make me. Fuck.

When CoE happened, I suppose I sort of went over a cliff like Wile E Coyote and now, watching Miracle Day, it's like looking down and only just realising that the ground disappeared way back there.

YEAH, ALRIGHT, THAT'S A SHITTY, FLIPPANT POP CULTURE METAPHOR, BUT THAT'S HOW IT FEELS, OKAY?

I will downloads it for you! You loves that wacky show.

I'm finding it very hard to explain, both on this here internets and at home, all the reasons why I'm not interested in Torchwood: Miracle Day. And I don't like pissing in people's chips, either, so I'm not going to rant and rave about how much I don't care about watching it, the truth is I don't really care enough either way to even be vehement about it, and if it gets downloaded for me (lol, seriously, I still don't know how that torrent shizzle works, I am ignorant in these matters and just write things on post its and stick them to his screen), I'll probably give it a go. My main problem at the moment is that all the things that people are now, having seen screeners and such, so very excited about, sound awful to me. Seriously, the more I hear about it, the worse it sounds. But that's just me and YMMV and such.

But, I am the Torchwood prophet, of course, so here's your 100% God's honest TRUTH, it's not even a hunch or prediction, this one, but I guess you could call it spoilers, what with it being an ACTUAL THING THAT WILL HAPPEN, and it's this:

SPOILERS )

Also, I am becoming increasingly worried that the whole Amy/Rory/Melody storyline in Who will be handwaved away entirely, and was, in fact, resolved when River said that stuff about the Doctor finding her and taking care of her and not to worry about it. Am I alone in this?

Luls...

Even the graphics are... ummm. Shit?

I can't make any observations about the design of the new Torchwood: Let's Do The Subtitle In Blueish, Don't Worry About Kerning It promotional material without being accused of being a killjoy Ianbot or whatever, but still. What's the bomb got to do with it, exactly? That's the fugliest, most disjointed and cliparty piece of design I've seen in a while. But, you know, I'm sure the series itself will be a masterpiece and that.

Umm... I like the starz logo? I'm a sucker for anything that plays with negative space.

YO, BE HAPPY, PEOPLE, I NEVER DID WRITE THAT THREE PAGE DIATRIBE ABOUT EVERYTHING THAT'S WRONG WITH THE MOFFAT WHO CREDITS AND THE FONT SPECIFICALLY.

LOL Wayne Knight. Lol. I promised myself I wouldn't post about Torchwood: Shit Title ever again because I don't actually plan on watching it. I lie, I totally DO, guys, I can smell the stale stench of cancellation and despair and I think I probably wouldn't miss it for the world except for the bit where I HATE Barrowman and I don't much like Eve Myles and so there is very little pulling me in here, guys. The new names mean nothing to me and the SRS BSNS DRAMA aspect of it makes me think it'll be like Outcasts, but more depressing and uncomfortable to watch. What's up with that fucking show? Even the hot Torchwood Victorian lesbian from Being Human can't keep me watching that downer of a series. I'm hoping Daniel Meade will start a fashion magazine. God knows they need it, why does everyone in those futuristic sci-fi dramas always look like they need a bath? I liked my sci fi with crack and an embossed car and shit, man. God, I miss my show.

Thankfully, of course, they brought back PRIMEVAL just for me. But no Cutter and it's just not the same without his wooden presence. But, you know, pet dinosaurs. Alexander Siddig. Fuck me, when's Primeval back again? That was way too short a pleasure. I have no idea what happened but I looked at it every week and there were monsters and shiny anomalies and Alexander Siddig. It was kind of like watching DS9, I never had any idea what was going on there either and only ever looked up from my tea if it was an amusing Ferengi episode.

Oh, and when's Who on already? I need more Rory/Amy cosplay.
