eruthros: Delenn from Babylon 5 with a startled expression and the text "omg!" (Default)
[personal profile] eruthros
So, a while ago I went over to [livejournal.com profile] thingswithwings's place. When we have dinner, we usually watch tv, but we couldn't decide what we wanted to watch. I was in a Sentinel mood, because of [livejournal.com profile] toft_froggy's joy about it, and [livejournal.com profile] thingswithwings has been trying to convince me to watch the new BSG for years. And so we had the following conversation:

eruthros: Hey, can I maybe convince you to watch a couple episodes of The Sentinel? It's awesomely bad!
tww: Oh, I don't know if I can watch much of that. What about finishing the BSG miniseries?
eruthros: But it's so depressing.
tww: Hey, I'll trade you an episode of The Sentinel for an episode of BSG!
eruthros: *falls down laughing*
tww: I'll even trade you one for one.
eruthros: omg, if you TOLD the BSG producers that you were swapping their show on an hour for hour basis with The Sentinel!
both: hysterical laughter for a while

But then we watched TS and BSG in alternation and ... actually ... this was a really good idea. Because everything that's missing from The Sentinel, I get from BSG; and everything that's missing from BSG, I get from The Sentinel. In the one, it's gritty and tense and the problems are well conceived -- and in the other, Jim says he needs to housebreak Blair and and Blair says "the ebola virus is BAD NEWS, man."* It really is everything I need in a TV show! Too bad it's two tv shows. But seriously, we've done three of these exchanges and it works beautifully. Highly recommended!

*It occurs to me that, if this were a wine pairing, it would be kind of like that guy who tries to figure out what wine to pair with cheetos.
