TV meme

Rob @ 12:34 PM

Stolen from everyone's Livejournal...

Choose five TV series (no peeking before you choose them), list them, and then answer the questions behind the cut.

1. Doctor Who
2. Mystery Science Theater 3000
3. Life on Mars
4. Mythbusters
5. Sealab 2021


1. Which is your favorite series from your list? And why?
Probably Who in general, counting the old and new as the same show. It's got everything from total crack to SRS BZNS and everything in between. Also, the TARDIS which is the best thing ever.

2. If you were to pair two characters from 1 and 4, who would they be?
Romana and Kari would get married and lots of hybrid artsy-scientist babies. TRUFAX.

3. What is one thing you'd like to change about 3's plotline?
The whole "Gene does something 70s-ish/Sam complains that it's not the right way to do it and presents the Modern Way/Gene says something like 'ok, just this one time you try your noncey thing but really I'm right you noncey nonce who is a nonce'/they turn out to be sort of both right in the end/Gene says 'see, you noncey noncey nonce, I was right after all, also, you're a nonce'" thing got ever so slightly repetitive at times, but perhaps that's a side-effect of watching 6 hours of the show in a row.

4. If both main characters of 2 and 5 were falling off a cliff, which one would you save?
I wouldn't have to, they'd either survive it in some entertainingly comic slapstick way (MST3K) or simply be alive again in the next episode with no explanation (Sealab.)

5. Which event was the most horrible for you in 1?
"The Ghosts of N-Space." Listening to that radio play is like having gonorrhea of the imagination wrapped in a raspy Jon Pertwee voice.

6. Which is your least favorite character of 2?
Poor old Doctor Erhardt, but it's not entirely his fault, since he never really got much to do and only appeared in the seasons where the cast and crew were still slowly figuring out how to make a TV show.

7. If the antagonist of 3 were to rape the main character of 1, what would you do?
Is it possible to get raped by the spectre of possible madness? Hm. Poor Doctor, being furiously whipped with a clown doll by the Test Card Girl...

8. What song reminds you of 5?
Quite a few, but I blame the fact that I used to run the main fansite for it, and as such got a constant stream of god-awful Amateur Music Videos submitted to me on a daily basis.

9. Of 1, 3, and 5, which is the easiest to think about?
5. Usually in the form of Murphy or Stormy quotes which improve any bad day.

10. Are the protagonists of 2 and 4 similar?
A bit, in terms of snark, and drive to dissect their source material.

Woo.

My sister Jo has moved in with her fiancee, and I was asked to help them move her stuff. It was a bit of a long day, but I don't see Jo enough. Additionally, I got to hang out with her dude for the first time, and it tuns out he's quite cool. They've got my big-brotherly approval.

Now I just have to figure out the whole brother-in-law thing. What the WTF is that all about?

Haxor fun

NYC2600 has a new What You Say!! up. Go add a caption!

Also, if you have the wherewithal to do so, kindly post the words "blank expressions" somewhere on the Internet, hyperlinked to http://www.2600.com/offthehook/ . As declared in the January 30 episode of that show, it's for science and stuff. Srs bzns, etc.

Holy carp!

So this is what being busier than normally allowed by sanity and physics is like.

Cool!
