full disclosure  
Thoughts after watching Alias's "Remnants" and "Full Disclosure":

  • In a universe without James Marsters, David Anders would have made a kick-ass Spike.
  • Will Tippin FOREVER! Could I love him more? I think not.

    And in closing:

  • WTF? Among the many many many questions I have, wasn't Vaughn on his way to prison a minute ago? Why is he parachuting into Patagonia?

    Oh, never mind. I look admiringly up at the blue sky from deep within the plot hole that is this show.

    Dude, there is no point in trying to untangle the web of plot-holes and continuity errors that is Alias. I have long since given up on trying to make sense of it, for fear that thinking too much about it would ruin my love for it, like what happened all those many years ago with The X-Files. Ohhhh, Chris Carter, why? Why must you hurt my delicate brain with bees and alien oil and African spaceships and Mimi Rogers and just how many children did Cancerman father and why is Mulder dead AGAIN?

    *has headache just REMEMBERING the mythology of that show*

    Lalalala Alias pretty and shiny. :)

    like what happened all those many years ago with The X-Files.

    And funny, wasn't it, how suddenly very X-Filesy Alias got? What with the egg harvesting and the clones and the abductions and the alien baby-making program and all that incomprehensible mythology up the yin-yang. Mm, good.

    Why must you hurt my delicate brain with bees

    You are poetry. This also works:

    Why must you hurt my delicate brain with bees
    and alien oil, why children father, dead again
    African spaceships ruin my love, many years ago


    There you go. Good to hear from you. I have been wandering in circles for months, tearing my hear and crying "Why has thy Annie forsaken me, o Lord?" And the Lord did smite me upside the head and say, "You didn't post in her LJ either, bitch." And then I realized it wasn't *my* lord, but *your* lord, because my god doesn't say "bitch" and then I realized I had no god, and then I went to bed an atheist.

    and then I went to bed an atheist.

    And then I went to bed *atheist*. I didn't bed an atheist. I didn't bed anyone. Sad, really.

    "Sad, really."

    For the poor suckers you didn't bed!

    Well, I think I'd rather go to Patagonia than prison. I mean, if I could choose.

    I have discs 1-5 of Alias from Netflix just waiting to be watched. Why waiting. Hell if I know. I was pissed when I didn't get them as soon as they came out, but now I'm holding onto them w/o watching! It's like I'm saving them for a special occasion or something.

    But I think it's really that I know I'll want to watch them nonstop when I get started, so I'm afraid!!

    I really need to watch them.

    Yeah, this comment really not anything you needed to read.

    I deleted a comment here that contained a mini-spoiler for season 3 Alias. As you were.

    Ah, I wish I could say that you must have blinked for a second and missed Vaughn and Jack's escape... but NOT. They expected you to play Connect The Dots and arrive to the conclusion that since Bad!Frogface!Guy had been killed, all charges against them had been dropped. I think.

    Season 3 of Alias is filled with WTF moments, it's the Absolute Mother of All WTF, and it will get much worse as you keep going through the DVDs. As in, BAD. VERY bad. So bad that I keep thinking that Season 4 will surely begin with someone stepping out of a shower. The only way to achieve suspension of the Bridge of Disbelief is with the aid of alcohol beverages and even then... ::sigh::

    Ken Olin has recently apologized for Season 3, so I'm hoping that things will get better in January. Hoping and praying and burning candles. Meanwhile stocking up on vodka and wine.

    I still love that show. But hey, I used to love playing Connect The Dots. Crayons anyone?

    I am still on season two...a little alias virgin I guess. I am feeling the vaughn love over here. He is quite swoony I must say. Especially when he speaks french (his native language)::swoon some more::
    But really - I just wanted to say something to you Anna. Even when you just make lists - your lists come out like poetry. I am everso glad that you are posting more - you are adding poetry back into my life. :::has little fangirl moment::::

    Thanks to this, I now have random flashes of David Anders in vamp-face. It makes for a very unpredictable morning at the office.
