Also, it’s quite possible that I have ridiculously high standards. I can’t count the number of times I’ll comment about this or that during a show or movie and my wife just looks at me with this are-you-kidding-me” look. She points out that no one else in the world would see the things I see when it comes to pointing out discrepancies or flat-out mistakes during movies.
I beg to differ. I think there are many people out there, just like me, who see the same things I do and grit their teeth and bare it just like I do. I mean, there has to be right? Tell me I’m not the only one!
Oh, God…am I the only one?
Alllllrighty then, moving on.
I consider myself an educated Sci-fi fan and in my considerable educated opinion, I thought Defiance sucked a big fat huge one. I mean seriously, horrible. I laughed. My daughter can write better dialogue with a crayon...and she has.
Okay, it might not be their fault, they had crap plots and flat, uninspired characters to work with, but come on! At what point do you tell the dude with the money...that's stupid...sci-fi fans are smart...let's not have the hero fight some abnormally large guy we all know he's going to punch in the nuts to win. Geesh, once Kirk does something...
How does crap like this get picked up for a second season and Firefly gets the boot!? I miss you Mal!
So that brings me to my Thought O' The Day: Don't eat a bowl of Cinnamon Toast Crunch in bed while watching a crappy-over-budget-lazily-written-sci-fi-knock-off-of-every-other-lazily-written-sci-fi-show-ever-made. Milk and cereal is hard to soak up.
