...and that's terrible.

Seriously.  If it wasn't for  [livejournal.com profile] scans_daily  I wouldn't have gotten back into comics again after a lengthy absence.   Hell, I probably wouldn't have bothered getting a LJ account in the first place.   It introduced me to the Secret Six,  Manhunter, and lots of other smaller titles that I wouldn't have even glanced at had I not seen them showcased over there first.   I know I'm not the only one.

Then there's the silver and golden age stuff.  Superdictionary; Lois Lane - Superman's Girlfriend; Tales from the Crypt and the like.  Not only were the scans fun to look at, they were fascinating in a historical context.   A brief look at how far we've come over the past few decades.

I also met some really cool people over there.

So fuck you Peter David.  I hope your title gets canned.  

That might have been childish and petulant of me, maybe a little unfair as well, but it felt good.


I think it says something about the quality of writing when a television show can make you hate a character with all the fury of a thousand suns one week, and then make you want to hug him the next.

Oh, Battlestar.  How I'll miss you when you're gone.  *Cuddles dvd boxsets and weeps*

Apparently, I just don't get what he's trying to do.

Huh. Silly me.

Battlestar Glactica season four is now available for pre-order.  Yay!  It's been a loooong wait and I've had some horrible withdrawl symptoms, ( damn you Virgin and Sky!) but in just over a month I'll have it in my grubby little paws.   I've been so good with the spoilers this time around as well.  I think that was what nearly ruined season three for me - that, and the not-so-good filler episodes- looking at the spoilers really ruined the final four reveal for me, it was such an anti-climax when it should have been a punch to the gut.

Well, that's not going to happen this time. :)

I'm pretty disappointed that this is the first half of the last season.  Between this and The Wire finishing up soon, I really won't have a clue what to do with myself in terms of viewing.  They're my two favourite tv programmes of all time and there's nothing else currently out there or even coming soon that even remotely grabs my interest in the same way.

I mean sure there's The Wire and Battlestar prequels here and on their way, it's not the same though.   The trailers for Dollhouse have done nothing for me at all.  I don't know if I want to sign up for another Joss Whedon show knowing that somewhere along the way I'm most likely to get the proverbial kick in the teeth in regards to one of my favourite characters. Not only that, the premise doesn't look that interesting either.  It's early days yet I suppose.

There's the Doctor Who specials, but again, the new trailer left me rather cold.  That could be because it's the Christmas special and I've never really liked them, aside from the Runaway Bride - but that's only because I went in with very low expectations. 

Eh.  I dunno.  There's nothing really to geek out about or really look forward to.  I could give Smallville another go, but I doubt I'm going to get past Lana Lang.  Ugh.


TDK is now a week away for us poor swines over in the UK, so I'll be avoiding all TDK chat, spoiler and non-spoiler alike.  I really don't want to ruin it for myself by get my hopes up or getting my hopes dashed like the last time.  I'm expecting to see a bloody great superhero film, nothing more, nothing less.   I'm not expecting to see the next Citizen Kane - or god forbid, Daredevil, just a great popcorn flick.

In related news, Gotham Knight was delivered today, much to my surprise and delight.  I wasn't expecting it to come this early, I really thought I'd be receiving it sometime next week since Play.com can be a bit rubbish about sending things out.  But since that wasn't the case this time round, I can happily report that Gotham Knight will be kicking off my Bat-Geek Week. Yay! 

I've got the Burton films, seasons one and two of B:TAS (you can't get three and four over here for some reason), the 1966 film - I'll hear nothing against it, and most importantly: Batman Begins to tide me over until next Monday.  If things get really desperate, I can also order the Schumacher films from my cable supplier.  But strangely enough, I don't think that's going to be a problem somehow.

The countdown begins! Huzzah!

Okay, I'm going get some dinner now.
