So, I'm here sitting around the teacher's room with [livejournal.com profile] re_nan (If you still haven't added him, do it NOW, he is a BIG SGA fan and he's starting to read fanfics) and we are VERY bored. LJ is acting up for him in the computer he is using. Meanwhile, I'm downloading the Torchwood pannel from Comic Con 2011 in the pc he is using, because d/l is faster in a network pc than in a wireless one which makes matters worse. And I just found the Supernatural pannel for d/l as well.

[livejournal.com profile] re_nan is loving SGA. He is the first person I totally converted to the fandom. *proud* He is a bit upset about what was done with Elizabeth Weir. He's watched up to Spoils of War. I also got him into Livejournal (and CityVille in FB).

My current obsession is Torchwood. I have rewatched all of season 2 and I'm in the proccess of rewatching Children of Earth. I still cry every time I watch Exit Wounds and probably will cry my eyes out with Children of Earth. Again. I'm trying to convince [livejournal.com profile] re_nan to watch Torchwood too. As well as Doctor Who. And SG1. Oh, and OMG can you believe HE DIDN'T KNOW WHAT STAR TREK WAS!?!?!?! I told him I wouldn't be his friend anymore for as long as it takes for him to correct this BLASPHEMY!

At work we are currently organizing the magazine we are in the proccess of making, having each Advanced student (and volunteers of lower levels) written an article, which I ALONE had to correct and format. I also make the cover and IT'S BRILLIANT. I'll see if I can make an online version available when it is done. I'll have to talk with my coordinator.

My new home is doing well. I can wash, clean or leave it dirty as I please (at the moment it is closer to dirty than anything else, lol).

I guess nothing really surprising has happened to me. Actually the biggest shock I had was the fact that my dad (who is 63 years old) has made a Facebook account and is keeping up with the rest of us. Of course, he used to be a systems analyst in his days.

I guess I have taken enough of my time. At least I was able to make [livejournal.com profile] re_nan update his LJ...

I was reading a few things about Miracle Day and had a thought about why it could be happening.

x_erikah_x: (Cpt Jack)
I finally got to see the first episode of Miracle Day thanks to my brother. I managed to see it twice before writing this post and I can say that I really liked it.

Unspoilery parts first.

Miracle Day is dark. It’s darker than Children of Earth, but in a good way. It's a more real kind of Torchwood and it is ideal for a new audience. It has references for the old fans, but it also explains a lot of stuff for the new viewers without getting boring for those that already know how the show works. We've got old faces and new faces to ground each section of the viewership. As an old fan I didn't find it rushed or overly explanatory in any way and was intrigued to find out more, the main goal of a first episode. In a way it feels more like a spinoff than a new season.

The fans that didn't like Children of Earth can give this a try, but don’t think this season will be the same as the ones before. The Welsh roots are still there, but it’s a bigger picture now and a larger scale. The budget certainly looks bigger. There’s more action and, dare I spoil you, more explosions. It’s more of an American show now, but it still has references of the past and the episode certainly had a lot of welshness in it too. It’s an interesting mix and I’m eager to find out how it’ll continue throughout the season.

Of course, we have the new additions to the team. Personally I liked both CIA agents, Rex and Esther, but I’m still unsure about Doctor Juarez. She seems competent enough in the parts she appeared. Old characters are changed from their experiences in the previous season and I can’t talk about that in more detail without going into spoilers, so it continues under the cut.

Spoilers )

Overall, I thought it was an effective first episode, making me curious to figure out other layers of the problem in next episodes and making me realize that I did miss the good ol’ show.

Title: What If...
Author: [livejournal.com profile] x_erikah_x
Fandom: Torchwood
Rating: PG-13 for adult concepts
Characters: Gwen, Owen and Tosh
Word count: 568
Disclamer: I'm sure it doesn't belong to me. Probably BBC's.

Author's Note: This is my first Torchwood fic. I've been watching a whole lot of it lately and got suddenly inspired to write. It came to me in the shower and I just had to finish off quickly so I could type it before I forgot the words. Unbeta-ed. Sorry about my mistakes.

You know you've got a free time problem when you post 5 times in the same day. Anyway, I've been getting some new friends from various fandoms over the last few months and I realized I don't know all that much about some of the people in my f-list, so I made this friending meme.

I saw Torchwood days 4 and 5 last night. Let's just say that I'm glad for not knowing how deep the fandom explosion was before I watched it.

x_erikah_x: (boys)
Yesterday was a holiday. I spent the day watching NCIS. I rented season three, discs one and two and I'm going to rent the rest to watch over the weekend. I don't think I've seen all of seasons one and two, but I think I have seen most. I really like this show.

I also watched Torchwood Children of Earth, days one and two, and I'm going to watch day three tonight. OMG! I LOVE TORCHWOOD!

I have spent my boring rainy Friday at work (which, of course no one came, except two people) re-editing my SGA prison fic which still needs a title. I have added more scenes and it's now past the 26,000 word count. I'm happy with the way it's turning out. Hopefully, I'll be done by the end of next week.

I can't wait to go home and watch COE and eating something. Damn, I only ate breakfast then a chocolate bar later and it's already 8PM. I need a hot dog!

I just watched Exit Wounds again. For the first time after... you know, the first time. And it had the same impact it did the first time. I'm crying and shaking again. I didn't want to see it again, even though it is the most brilliant episode of Torchwood ever, but I did. Why did I have to see it again?
x_erikah_x: (Cpt Jack)
I was in a Brazilian TW forum and they were discussing Exit Wounds and something came to my attention.

SPOILERS, obviously )

This is my first day of going totally spoiler free. I didn't go to JM's blog. Much. I may have seen a pic of one of JF's best angle.... Buuuuut it wasn't spoilery.

I had two patients today... none of them came. Canceled due to unforseeable circunstances.

In the boredom I watched SG1's Talion (for the first time). Damn I wish Shep could be that whumped! *grumbles*

I also saw TW's I-Don't-Know-The-Name-Of-The-Episode. Made me get a bit sad for that woman. But I thought some certain scene (that is making the fandom explode in glee) very funny.

And I cooked lunch. Rice needing a lot more garlic (I love garlic, just to prove that I'm not so vampiric....), mashed potatoes that look absolutely yummy, some meat thingy that may have burned slightly and a cooked egg.

Just thought I should post this before the strike comes later today (in my time zone). Now, off to work and wishing it could be holiday already.
x_erikah_x: (Teyla eyeroll)
Some spoilers for some stuff I watched on the weekend.

Spoilers for Torchwood 2x07 - Dead Man Walking )

Atlantis 4x18 - The Kindred I )

National Treasure 2 I'll discuss it without spoiling main plot twists )

And this film only made me more eager for Indy 4! It's going to be released on my birthday! Isn't it amazing!!!
x_erikah_x: (sad Lorne)
I know most people in my flist don't watch the show, but I just need to get this off my chest. I just watched 2x06 Reset.

Spoilers for Reset. If you ever want to watch this show DON'T LOOK! )
