BSG Discussion


Not in five bazillion years would I trespass on Athenae’s rightful turf.

Just opening a discussion thread, with some Jacob, per usual. 

Because: he is awesome. 

all of that is going on, Laura is losing her entire fucking mind. It’s
literally, actually, the scariest thing I think I’ve ever seen. The
concept of Mary McDonnell yelling at me like that, even if she was
acting, makes me want to first shit and then airlock myself. I mean to say that she trips the crazy fantastic.
I don’t know what else to say. You have to see it to believe it. Mary
McDonnell’s seriously the scariest person and the most scary-awesome
actor on the face of the planet. Imagine if you will that you are four
years old, and you have just driven the family car into the living
room, killing Stephen Hawking and some orphans. “

  1. I just keep expecting Kevin Costner to pup up in a civil war uniform.
    That my girlfriend says “tatonka” everytime she is on screen does not help.

  2. I worked really hard with my mad mind-control skilz to get A. a Doc Cottle episode, but apparently I’m only able to demand scenes, not entire eps. Sigh. Sorry, A., but it was the best I could do. At least he got to save the day!
    Now, let’s see: So far, we have had the humans commit torture, summary execution, acts of terrorism, and now we have a latter-day Josef Mengele abetted by some old-fashioned quasi-anti-semitism.
    Boomer’s question is looking more and more important, isn’t it?
    And finally, in response to the Jacob clip (before I go off to read the whole thing, as usual), Mary McDonnell deserves not just an Emmy, but an Emmy Cluster with Honors. The woman can fracking *act*. Thank god they’ve got people writing stuff for her like this. Even the tiny scene they had for her last night with Zarek–yow. One of my favorite episodes is still the one where she and Starbuck got so much screen-time together, even if it did involve Starbuck torturing Leoben.

  3. Buggy, if you’ve not seen it, rent “Passion Fish”
    it’s a John Sayles film, and as is usual with him, it’s perhaps (not for me) a little too longish.
    Mary McDonnell and Alfre Woodard alone are fracking amazing. Throw in David Strathairn, and damn.
    Just damn.
    Also very funny. “I didn’t ASK for the anal probe. I didn’t ask for the ANAL probe…”

  4. I’ve been meaning to watch Passion Fish ever since I saw Lone Star, virgotex. I absolutely *loved* Lone Star (can’t wait to see Breach just because I so love Chris Cooper). It was just so beautifully done–it isn’t often you see a movie directed with such willingness to allow scenes to develop. I think you can probably guess that I won’t mind if it’s a bit longish. And the idea of Alfre Woodard and Mary McDonnell in the same movie…whew! I guess I know what I’ll be doing Friday night. Thanks for reminding me of Passion Fish!
