Department of Nataldalia

Many Happy Returns of the Day!

First, to shanna_s, who celebrated on Aug. 6; may this year have wonderful opportunities to sing, very few disruptive children in choir practice, no aches and pains, well organized work days, filled with both creativity and productivity, and some great trips as well.

Second, to someone who hasn't been around for a while, but who was a definitely pleasure to know, and would be great fun to see again, [personal profile] the_arc5 , with whom I've shared fandom love, and whose thoughts about fandom I've been impressed by more than once. Wherever you are, may your day today be wonderful, and your year be fantastic!

Dept. of Defiance!

So ... Defiance

This morning, I was going through my Twitter feed, as one does (and believe me, the idea today that I have a Twitter feed, and that I've been on it for almost precisely one year, is simultaneously amusing and horrifying), and I ran across a tweet that referenced a podcast from ... Slate? Yeah, I think it was Slate. And in the summary for the podcast was a comment that one of the podcasting bloggers wanted to talk about Defiance. And she mentioned her belief that, with the second season of Defiance, she was now watching a show of as high a quality as Battlestar Galactica.

As of tonight, having watched last week's Defiance, I'm thinking ... almost.

It's not there yet. It's got a football field's worth of way to go yet, as a matter of fact.

But.

But.

Damn me if it isn't getting there, surprisingly fast.

Also? Can I be the founding member of two new clubs? The Doc Yewl fan club, and the Datak and Rafe Road Show Appreciation Society? I can? Eeeexcellent.
