On The Week Past [Monday 11 May 2009 at 09:49 pm]

On Star Trek:

Not yet showing at my corner megaplex. Now I'm both excited and desperate.

On Testing The Very Religious Date:

Owen: Wow. Maine just passed a law recognizing gay marriages.
Date: That's great. How many is that now?
Owen: Five states I think.
Owen- Loves it when they pass

On Dollhouse:


So Paul does get to save Caroline in the end. But he has to do it without saving sexy Echo and her hot bod. Awesome symbolism.

Topher decided that Doctor Whiskey would hate him. I wonder if he's trying to make her a better doctor or if there's some deeper ethical thing going on. Remember how he was set to catch the spy and he gave Boyd a heads up just in case? There is something in Topher that respects a serious moral code even if he doesn't necessarily follow one himself.

Whiskey and Echo both have at least a little contempt for their original personalities that abandoned them. Alpha is the only one who loves the original Alpha. And he's kind of screwed up. What does that mean?

Oh, Amy Acker really can act? I'd been suspecting she was just a Joss fantasy girl. Good for her.

Boyd and Paul together are a cool team.


On Cooking Chilaquiles:

Not as complicated as it looked and darn tasty.

On The Imminent Cancellation Of Dollhouse:

That guy who makes Dollhouse and the other good shows should work with someone who respects great work and knows how to market it. Fox doesn't fit the bill. Maybe chasing the big budgets is less important than keeping a show on the air, Josh. Try HBO or Sci-Fi or UP/WBN (whatever they call it) or Showtime.

*avoiding the Dollhouse spoilers as I haven't caught up on it yet*

Hee. I love the test of the religious date. I do much the same thing, though usually with acquaintances to see if we could potentially be friends. I don't often find myself dating religious people anyway.

Having a spiritual passion is good. Hating someone because God made 'em different is not at all the same thing. But people get confused, so you have to test.

Topher decided that Doctor Whiskey would hate him.

I interpreted it as that he didn't program her to hate him - that that was just a residual aspect of her real self, and that was why he was so shaken by it.

And good job testing the religious date. I went on four dates with a guy once before the topic of abortion came up. It was like a Seinfeld episode.

Maybe. Either way it's interesting and I'd have liked the chance to see more of it.

That does sound like a Seinfeld episode, but less funny. I can't imagine telling someone I had romantic intentions toward that I thought the government should be regulating her reproduction.

is the only one who loves the original Alpha.

Loved the original AAlpha so much he smashed his wedge? That's a weird kind of love but then Alpha is a weird kind of guy.

I'm still living with the hopeful delusion that it will be renewed. So much so that I've already bought 4 copies of the DVD for myself and gifts for friends who are fans.

I'm wondering if the hate comes from his relationship withthe original Dr Saunders. I also read somewhere that maybe the personality he pulls out on his birthday is the original Whisky and that sounds fascinating as well. I hope we get to find out more.

Weird love, sure, but he really wants to be Alpha, among others. Whiskey and Echo passed up the chance.

hopeful delusion

Go ahead, touch the stove again. Maybe this time it won't burn you.

relationship withthe original Dr Saunders....original Whisky

obiwhan thinks it was the original Whiskey that hated him. I'd sure like to see more either way.

Yeah, Josh! Well, I'm still clinging to hope, over here. And shame on you for doubting Ms. Acker. The Fred/Illyria thing wasn't enough for you? ('Cos that's when her fellow actors realized that Fred wasn't just Amy.) Actually, though, I didn't exactly buy her "Natural Born Killers" persona. But it matters naught, as the twistyness was better than any rollercoaster.

*happy Dollhouse sigh*

Here's hoping for a lovely, sweet smelling gal who will accompany you to the megaplex for Star Trek, and then dissect it with you for hours over chilequiles (though they're not as good cold).

I've had to learn to discount positive opinions about women that form only while they are wearing skin tight latex. It's a guy thing.

Yes, shame on me. She was great.

By jimminy they sure aren't.

I haven't seen Star Trek yet, either...*holds breath, turns purple*

And Amy Acker was good in Alias, too -- I think she really has range!

I wonder if it's any good for us to try avoiding Star Trek spoilers.

Fred gave me doubts but Amy sure does. I hope she has a good job come Fall.

Please share your recipe for chilaquiles. I've had them a couple of different ways and love them all.

Your test is a good one!
