I feel like I looked away, and then looked back, and ... September's almost over? I haven't posted in months?! THE YULETIDE LETTERS POST IS UP?!? How does this keep happening? *shakes fist*

A (relatively) brief survey of things I've enjoyed since FEBRUARY, wtf:

Batman v Superman. I don't know either. )

Ghostbusters! :D )

Star Trek: Beyond! )

WYNONNA EARP. )

S2 of Dark Matter! (Spoilers.) )

Other than that, still watching Major Crimes and still so happy with it that I have nothing to say about it. Slowly working my way through Miss Fisher and enjoying it so far. Lucifer's just started up again—I watched S1 and enjoyed it a lot, but I felt the same way about Sleepy Hollow, so we'll just see how S2 goes. And ... that's all that springs to mind, though I'm sure I'm forgetting something.

As for real life? ... I can't believe there's anyone left who's undecided about the presidential election, and that's about all I want to say about that. There are times when I love living in a safe blue state, and there are times when it makes me feel incredibly helpless.

OMG OMG OMG OMG. AWESOME. *flails* ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥!

That settles it, I will love Star Trek until the day I die. Hot damn.

Ahem.

More specific (and spoilery) flail within. )

In conclusion: A++++++++++ WOULD WATCH AGAIN (AND AGAIN AND AGAIN AND AGAIN-), I will campaign as long as I have to in order to get my mother to agree to get this on DVD. Harry Potter may have been the gateway to online fandom for me, but Star Trek was the gateway to fannishness, the thing that showed me what it felt like to immerse myself in a source text and love it, and I will never, ever let it go.

... Man, I'm getting a little verklempt, here. I'm going to go finish bibbling about Starship Troopers before I actually start crying or something. :D

omg squee.

I have not yet seen the new Star Trek movie - my whole family's going to see it together tomorrow, natch, we are all Trekkies together - but I love it already, if only because it has sparked a whole lot of reruns of other Star Trek movies on TV. SciFi showed First Contact yesterday (and is showing it right now, actually, I think), which I kind of love, even if the Borg Queen's twitching spine gives me the creeps.

This is probably not going to be great meta, because I'm biased. )

I also found myself suddenly drawn back into Tin Man, for no particular reason. The first time I watched it, I immediately started shipping Glitch/Cain. Glitch's fight scene, plus the exchange about him saving Cain from hypothermia - because fandom has taught me where that always leads - and I was sold.

Obviously there are problems with that source text ... )

I recognized Callum Keith Rennie almost instantaneously, and pretty much entirely from Due South icons, as I have never actually watched even a single episode of Due South. I did look up caps once, the first time I realized that whole buddy-breathing thing was actually from canon, but that's about it. It was a very peculiar experience, knowing his face so unbelievably well without actually having watched anything he's been in. Also, the musical theme is extremely reminiscent of the music from the opening credits of SG-1; there's one batch of notes that's exactly the same, as far as I can tell, and then it diverges. It was driving me crazy for the first hour or so.

All told, it's been a very fannish couple of days. Unfortunately, I'm going to have to ease my way back into the real world this weekend, so that I can get everything relating to my thesis research sorted before my job starts. Augh.

ETA: I forgot to add a couple other commentaries. I did what could perhaps be termed some excessive movie-watching today. First Contact was yesterday, and Tin Man I'm just bibbling a few notes about because it was on my mind today, not because I watched it.

What I did watch today was:

Tristan &/+ Isolde )

And then there was also Casanova )

... That ETA was crazy long, yikes. I can really yammer when I get going, I guess. :D
