Odds and Ends

Yay!  It's finally fall!  Actually fall, and not just teasing fall that lasts for a few days before it warms up again.  My sisters and I are planning our epic Halloween dinner, to be eaten as we watch the most triumphant premiere of The Walking Dead.  I would be excited about a zombie show anyway, but it's Frank Darabont, and Bear McCreary is doing the music, so you know it's going to be amazing.  As far as meal planning goes, so far all we have are barbeque meatballs and green chile bacon cheddar croissant things.  Maybe some sherbet punch?  And I think ghost sugar cookies.  We're still working on it.

scifiland had a fic challenge that I actually did, but then I missed the deadline.  I'm still kind of pissed about it, heh.  Anyway, since I didn't get to submit in time, I'm just going to post it here, since it's ineligible for voting.  We had to pick one of three sentences and build the fic around it, which was a really fun exercise. 

Title: Untitled Drabble (IDK, dudes)
Specs: Battlestar Galactica, Laura, no spoilers, 250 words
Rating: PG
Disclaimer: I did not bother getting out my DVDs to check these numbers, so they're probably off.  Eh.
Prompt: "She's been dreaming and not sleeping, on a road not meant for traveling."

Fuck you, SyFy. Fuck you.

Caprica got canceled.  They're not showing the rest of the episodes until next year.

I am like legit depressed right now.

Why do the networks never understand that it's worth hanging onto really good shows that may not get the best ratings? Because they pay off in different ways? SyFy, you're not going to get critical acclaim for any of your other shows, sorry to say.

Also, maybe its audience didn't pick up because you took it off the air for seven months and never advertised it. I DON'T KNOW, MAYBE THAT'S IT. It reminds me of that rant David Cross did when Arrested Development's ratings dropped and FOX was talking shit about the show. Paraphrased, "If you've got a show that's making top ten lists, winning motherfucking Emmys, and you can't market that show? Maybe the fault doesn't lie in the show. Maybe the fault lies in marketing. Thank you."
