So after (re-)watching "Common Ground,"1 [ profile] graycastle and I decided to rename SGA.

We will henceforth be referring to it as "porn."

As in, "Well, the interesting thing about Porn season two is the way the arrival of the Daedalus limits the tension of every episode..." and "I've never really understood the authorial choices in Porn. I mean, I know what I read into the scene where they come out of the infirmary in Echoes, but what could the Porn directors have possibly thought?" And, in a couple weeks, "omg squee Porn 4x01 airs tonight!!!!!"

I mean. John. "Common Ground." JUST SAYING YOU GUYS.

1. This is part of our ongoing weekend project of Watch Neat Episodes Before Season Four. It probably says a lot about us that we, so far, chose "Underground," "The Storm/The Eye," "Hot Zone" ([ profile] graycastle didn't remember this episode much, and I kept pushing all "no! no! Rodney makes awesome faces! there are other scientists! he loves his TEAM, man!"), "Inferno," two scenes from "Sateda," and "Common Ground."

We intend to also watch: "Tao of Rodney" and "Echoes" and maaaaybe "Phantoms." And maybe "The Game." And maybe also two scenes from "Sunday."

Note: there is only one season two episode in there. We tried really hard to be excited about something else. But "Grace Under Pressure" basically equals "Tao of Rodney" in terms of character development, "Epiphany" is way cooler in stories, and "Duet" makes me a little tooth-gritty about gender. SO.

What about Trinity? I know fandom regularly makes a butchery of the fallout, but all the more reason to go back to the real thing!

Heh. I guess we just approach that differently - I take canon as my antidote for fannish insanity. *g*

oh, Porn, you are my favourite show! the way the camera pans up John's body where it's sprawled on the ground in pain? COME ON. the director might as well have come out from behind the viewfinder and licked him.

for me, the thing with Trinity is just that I've seen it too much - I've watched it a lot, I've seen it written about a lot (of course) and I'm kind of tired of it, now. Also...the Rodney-has-hubris! plot, for some mystical reason, bothers me more and more each time it's rehashed, on the show or in fic.

Didn't. Remember. "Hot Zone."

Look, I have to take this as a serious personal insult, as the opening scene is the entire reason I am in the fandom. You pass that on!
