Welcome to Twenty Eleven  
OH_WHIMSICAL? I GOT YOUR CHRISTMAS CARD, YOU ARE SUCH A DARLING AND SO SWEET. NOT GONNA LIE I GRINNED LIKE A LOON READING IT. ILU TOO, BB. ♥ ♥ ♥

By the way, does anyone know what happened to downfall35?

After finishing (sadly) Caprica via the DVD set, and being further impressed more and more by the finale as I rewatch it because damn it is good, and moving onto not only listening to the commentary but doing the same with the Dollhouse DVDs, I had forgotten that some of my shows were returning this week! Pretty Little Liars resumes on Monday and V returns on Tuesday! \O/ I know some others are returning too, I'll have to look at a schedule. I can't wait for The Cape's mid-season premiere, yay Summer Glau!

It feels odd, doesn't it? It feels like 2010 had just arrived and suddenly it's 2011. I don't know whether I should be concerned about time going by quickly.....

Also, I don't normally do resolutions for the new year, mostly because I rarely if ever keep them. However I do plan on making some adjustments regarding this journal. Nothing serious so don't worry! It's just my way of arranging things such as topic for discussion, adding more variety into the mix since I know most of what I talk about some people on my flist aren't even a participant on and somehow I feel like I'm being dismissive of them. I would like to also reconnect with many people on my friendslist who I haven't chatted with in a while, either by drifting apart fandom-wise or whatever. I don't want to exclude anyone, and if you've felt that way I feel kind of bad about that. So if we haven't chatted in a while please, feel free to drop by and say hey or something of the like.

No clue..I was a good bit surprise their journal had been deleted.

Same here. I was like, "wait a minute..." :(
*angi_is_altered on January 1st, 2011 08:36 pm (UTC)
I do wonder what brought it on.

I was really enjoying Caprica but I stopped watching it when it got cancelled. Does it end properly or is there no real resolution?
Renée: Caprica. Zoe Graystone.rogueslayer452 on January 1st, 2011 08:07 pm (UTC)
I felt the ending was very good, obviously there are still some things that were left unexplained because had there been a second season we probably would have gotten more elaboration on. However, personally, coming from someone who loved the show and is a huge BSG fan myself, I felt the ending was well done to wrap things up. Perhaps not as perfectly as we could have hoped for, considering there could have been more and it leaves us wanting more, but I felt it was amazing.

Though I'll leave you to judge for yourself of course. Syfy airs the final five episodes back to back this Tuesday, Jan 4th. which is another way of saying "fuck you" to the fans, but whatever

God knows when it will air over here. I might just buy the DVDs

They're worth it, trust me. It's just sad knowing that there won't be any more after you watch it all, though. One of the heartbreaks of getting into already canceled shows that you begin to love. :(

I was like that with Firefly :(
Renée: Firefly. Big Damn Heroes.rogueslayer452 on January 1st, 2011 08:38 pm (UTC)
Oh, Firefly. My precious Firefly. ;___; I'm still pissed at FOX.

Oh firefly. At least we got a movie.
Renée: Firefly. Inara Serra.rogueslayer452 on January 2nd, 2011 06:32 pm (UTC)
It was like some miracle, and I'm happy that we did get a movie because it was pretty damn epic. :D
I need more fandoms like CKR needs more sexylove_jackianto on January 2nd, 2011 06:48 pm (UTC)
It was. It's a shame that so few people saw it and we'll probably never get a sequel.
Renée: Firefly. Big Damn Heroes.rogueslayer452 on January 2nd, 2011 07:13 pm (UTC)
I find that interesting considering all the pre-screenings beforehand were all sold out, and basically all Firefly fans went to see the movie multiple times. But I'm supposing that movie numbers are quite different when determining another movie in a franchise.

I would love there to be a Big Damn Sequel, sometime in the future. But as I said it was a miracle that the movie was ever even considered at all, so we should be happy that there was at least some kind of continuation to tell the story. :)

'But I'm supposing that movie numbers are quite different when determining another movie in a franchise.'
I think so. I've heard that a movie has to make at least twice it's initial budget (to cover filming and marketing) to be considered successful and Serenity only made $38.8 million worldwide with a budget on 39 million. I'm sure it's higher with DVD sale, but probably not high enough.

Agreed on all points.

The only way for me to complete Caprica is to get the DVD which I have no money for right now. XD Maybe someone will put the last few episodes up somewhere. I hope.
Renée: Caprica. Zoe. Just a girl.rogueslayer452 on January 2nd, 2011 08:11 am (UTC)
Can you download the episodes? Because I have them all saved on my computer in case you want me to upload and PM you the ones you need. ;)

Hey! Long time no chat! :D I've missed you as well, glad to hear that you're back and things are going well.

Regarding Facebook, I'm not getting one. I had no desire to before and quite frankly, from all the negative things I've heard about it I think it's for the best. I still have LJ and that's good enough for me at the moment. :)

Getting in the job market is kinda hard right now, I've been applying for both my certified job as other jobs just for the off-chance of becoming employed in something. But no dice so far. It's frustrating, to be honest. So in other words, not for some time but that might change in the new year. You never know.

Hi, you! :D And your icon reminds me of the fact that I actually really like D'Anna.

I kind of wrote down some things on a paper as my resolutions (<- totally wrote resoul there at first; SPN still affects me! O_O), but otoh some things I have to do anyway (like, er - write a thesis). Discussion is always good! :)

Thanks. :) It's the same reason why I never got into the whole MySpace hype, it seems incredibly sketchy and highly unreliable to use. I prefer sites like LiveJournal, you know?
Renée: Cylons. By your command!rogueslayer452 on January 5th, 2011 01:51 am (UTC)
I love D'Anna. ♥ Lucy Lawless was perfect for the role.

Yeah, mostly resolutions are things people have to do anyway regardless, so I find it kind of pointless. I do have certain goals fandom-wise and this journal, something I wanted to do before but now with a new year, fresh start and new fandoms and things to discuss, I find it's the perfect time to do so. :D
