We're gonna party like it's 1999, except not really.  
2010. The start of a new year, although technically not the start of a new decade, but whatever. Spent New Years Eve watching the Twilight Zone marathon while drinking sparkling cider and overhearing the big exploding booms of fireworks outside. Honestly, I don't do resolutions every new year because mostly those resolutions end up becoming the same ones over and over, but I did accomplish some amazing goals last year that surprised even me, so here's to hoping I may just accomplish more in 2010.

Fandom has been moving slow due to the hiatus, and while there are some minor wanks it's nothing worth mentioning. Although there have been quite a few interesting things I've come across.

++ SciFi's new miniseries, Riverworld, which stars Tahmoh Penikett, Laura Vandervoort and Alan Cumming. Oh, and Alessandro SURPRISE!GAETA Juliani also appears in this too. I just discovered this trailer and, I know nothing of the book or the original movie they did way back when, apparently it was very bad. But the story itself sound interesting. And hey, it's got Tahmoh bbs, once Dollhouse ends (returning next Friday, three episodes left omg) I'll be more than happy to see him on my screen in the new year.

++ So, apparently I have not been keeping tabs on GAYTIME TV. Finally, daytime television is getting on the hints that us women like teh gay mens. Even though it is very cheesy and corny because of course of the ~*~dramatic soap opera~*~ stuff going on, it's all fluffeh and schmoopy. Though it is ironic considering ABC will allow the male/male love and yet refuse to let Adam Lambert perform, heh. At least this is a step up?

++ I'm becoming a huge Enver Gjokaj fangirl, not just with his extraordinary talent on Dollhouse but just the way he is in real life, and this kinda-few-months-old interview with him and Dichen is just adorable. He also reveals he's a huge BSG fan and fanboys Michael Hogan. ♥ I don't normally do RP shipping but Enver/Dichen are just as adorable in real life as they are on the show itself, just with the countless interviews they have together they have such amazing chemistry. The entire cast even, and it's just so sad that it's be canceled because they've all meshed together so well as a family and now they won't be working together anymore. :(

++ BIG PIMPIN' TIME: therandomact! Basically, all I have to say is Misha started it, and us fans went through with his plans by creating this little organization as we are about to take over the world, one good deed at a time. LET'S GO DO OUR MASTER AND OVERLORD PROUD!

There is a reason why Misha won the Best of Twitter 2009, folks. *nods*

Yay for Misha winning best twitter of 2009 and thanks so much for linking to that Riverworld trailer, I will be on the look out for it.:)

Oh my god , I screamed and scared my mum when I saw Peter Wingfield,lol.:)

It was inevitable that Misha was to win this, no other celebrity deserves the best Twitter award like he does (and hilariously he probably barely knows this even happened, lol he'll be in for a pleasant surprise when he returns)

You're very weclome, bb. :)

What does it say that I am more excited about the prospect of SURPRISE!GAETA than Tahmoh? Not that I don't love Tahmoh, of course! But Gaeta omg. ♥♥♥

Thanks for the MS pimp, bb.
Renée: Cylons. By your command!rogueslayer452 on January 2nd, 2010 09:16 pm (UTC)
lol I pretty had the same reaction. I was like, is that? IT IS OMG SURPRISE!GAETA YAY! ;D First he made a cameo in Alice and now this, and being reunited with former BSG actors = ftw.

Here’s to a good year!

Gaeta, really?

Which brings us to Gaytime TV - ha, ha! Schmoopy, yes, but not bad at all. Although, they must have cut the most intense part (don’t they lie on different sides at the end?). ;)
Renée: Dean/Castiel. Personal space.rogueslayer452 on January 2nd, 2010 09:22 pm (UTC)

Hee, I was surprised because I was like okay, there's Tahmoh, but then OMG GAETA WAT?! LOL!

Definitely not bad at all, and although I would have liked some more rump in the sheets (my brain be going to naughty places, damn you slashfic!) but at least there was some minimal humping/grinding before fading out to them spooning in bed. There should be an extended/unrated version of this scene somewhere...oh, if only soap operas did those. *sigh*

I'm finding that out too, just watching the couples that are mildly interesting online instead of sitting through the entire thing which can be pretty painful. I haven't seen any foreign soap operas like British or German, which if they're anything like you're saying they are I might be more interested in those than the US soaps. Heh.

I saw the Riverworld movie last year in the fall, courtesy of my father, and it was... terrible. I hear the novel is better, but the way it was done and the wooden acting on that film put me off the story completely.

So when it comes to the tv series, I'll do what I always do. I'll wait for you to review it :)
Renée: Alice. Curiouser and curiouser.rogueslayer452 on January 3rd, 2010 07:47 am (UTC)
Yeah, I heard it was terrible too. Of course I never heard of the book before seeing this so, hopefully, I'll be fresh eyes and ears to the entire story to not be so critical of those who are or have seen the original movie and weren't pleased with it. ;)

Riverworld looks good--I vaguely remember the books. All I could think while watching the trailer, though, is "omg, is this a Highlander crossover? Methos is all dressed up like Death!"

Ooh, I didn't know about Riverworld. I'll have to check it out.
Renée: Castiel. Guardian angel.rogueslayer452 on January 3rd, 2010 08:47 am (UTC)
It does look pretty interesting. Of course, I'll be honest, I wouldn't have been interested if there wasn't any Tahmoh or surprise!Gaeta involved, lol.

So obvs the biggest reason why the cancellation of Dollhouse makes me die inside is because the story is just SO FUCKING AWESOME and I am a whore for dystopian futures, but I think the second biggest reason is that Enver Gjokaj won't be on my television on a regular basis. He is just amazing. And I can't think of any other story that would be able to so seamlessly use his ridiculous talent for impressions.
Renée: Echo. Save Dollhouse.rogueslayer452 on January 3rd, 2010 09:25 pm (UTC)
I completely agree with all of this. It's just so sad that we only have three episodes left to an amazing story that has so much potential and so many places it can explore, with a great ensemble cast no less. I just hope that everyone is able to find some work after this, particularly Dichen and Enver who are perhaps deserving of any kind of work to show off their extraordinary talent.

I just kinda want an "Epitaph Two" movie or something, you know? That would be AWESOME!
futurestarlette on January 4th, 2010 01:33 am (UTC)
OMG, I would just DIE of happiness if there were a movie. I'm trying not to get my hopes up too much, though - although it's hard not to because I keep comparing it to Firefly!
Renée: DH. Echo. Blank slate.rogueslayer452 on January 4th, 2010 04:17 am (UTC)
I know. :( I mean honestly, I don't care if its a full-out movie or a mini-movie that's a direct-to-DVD release (or something via teh interwebs), as long as we get something of a continuation of the Dollhouseverse in some form. Because although epic as its gotten, three more episodes just isn't enough.
