Watched Torchwood: Miracle Day.  Actually, I finished watching it last night but I thought I'd let my thoughts percolate for a bit.  Bad idea, because the more I think about it, the less it makes any damn sense at all.

Yes, I know, you warned me and I didn't listen. )

Semi-related note: a friend of mine just had twin boys and named them Jack and Owen.  Pretty sure she's not a Torchwood fan, though.

Oh, and it totally occurred to me the other day that Jack Harkness actually is what the cultural perception of TOS!Kirk seems to be -- namely, will sleep with any sentient entity in any universe.  I wonder if the writers actually had that in mind when they were creating Jack's character.  Eh, probably not.

See, here's the thing: there's only one demon possession movie.  It's called The Exorcist.  Everything else is fated to be a bad copy of The Exorcist.  I don't know why this is -- most likely, the movie was so influential that our very concept of demonic possession is defined by it -- but my point is, stop making possession movies, because there already is one, and only one, and yours isn't going to be any better.

And if you do foolishly go ahead and make one, please don't advertise in such a way that I cannot look at IMDb or watch various TV shows online without forcibly being subjected to the trailer.  Okay?

Oh, and I'm about to post some Teen Wolf fic recs, but obviously I have some miscellaneous FEELINGS to get out of the way first.

I watched Children of Earth again )

And I've started watching Miracle Day, because I am a masochist.  It's a really interesting premise -- can't wait to see how they fuck it up.

God knows why I thought it would be a good idea to wind down last night by watching the last ep of season 2 of Torchwood, and tonight by watching the latest Doctor Who.

Torchwood: Exit Wounds )

Doctor Who: The Angels Take Manhattan (warning: rant) )
