I can still see why I gave the pilot a not-quite-passing grade back when. And I don't know that seeing the first two regular eps would've changed my mind much at the time. But having read a thousand or so pages of fanfic, I like John a lot more, I think Rodney is adorkable instead of a jerk, and I love seeing them snarking back and forth with each other. I love Teyla, and I'm bouncing up and down waiting for Ronon to show up.
Oh, and now that I know who this "Ford" guy is -- wow, cute! Not just to look at either; him telling John that wormhole travel was incredibly painful in the pilot, then that grin and the "Wahoo!" backwards dive through? Yeah, I'm going to like this guy. :D Oh, and add "Brave to the point of idiocy" to his resume. O_O Why hasn't there been entire archives of h/c written about him?? It'd be totally canon to show him getting torn up every other week while doing something insanely brave to save someone else's life.
Benjamin Button -- For everyone who saw Benjamin Button, did the soundtrack sound hosed? Not all the sound, just the music? When the husband and I went this weekend, sometimes it did -- it sounded like it was being played too slow, lower and drawn-out and way distorted, bad enough to have even me wincing, and I'm fairly oblivious to music -- and sometimes it didn't. Was it supposed to sound like that for some strange, whacked-artistic reason? :P
Other than that, the movie rocked. You know, I've never been a real Brad Pitt fan before. I didn't dislike him, just never saw what the fuss was about. He got very nicely buffed up for Troy, but I've never seen anything to turn me into a squeeing Pitt fangirl. I think I am now. He is hot in this movie, seriously. :D At least in the parts where he doesn't look like he's eighty. And it's a great movie even aside from the eye candy. Highly recommended. (Even with the whacked-out music.)
