I didn't watch SGU, and given it was only slightly higher than Caprica in ratings, I can't say I'm shocked it got canceled, but it was rather awful seeing Ming-Na's twitter that she found out about the cancellation of SGU that way. Stay classy, SyFy!

Speaking of Caprica, apparently one of the DVD commentaries claims that Zoe would've met one of the Final Five in VR in S.2. .... huh? Interesting, and yet I'm glad I don't have to deal with that, actually.


I should stop writing Vampire Diaries commentfic. Especially when I COULD be writing TVD treats for Yuletide. Or ... my very own Yuletide assignment. um, yeah. I have the minimum at least, so that's good.

But here are two small ficlets:
Checkmate , Klaus and Stefan.

Borrowed Time, Elena/Stefan.

so far.

And all those germs out there in internet-land have finally hit me. ugh. Pesky viruses.

Now that's an interesting idea. I suppose it would mean the Five had VR on their ship and a means of projecting across vast distances. The V-worlds of the Twelve Colonies are limited to each planet, which I've presumed was because of the difficulties involved in getting the signals across space - radiation not being the least of them.

Like you say, vast distances are a bit much to swallow (I'd mind less if it was Head!Six, who they also apparently tried to get), but I also don't really like the idea of an early connection like that. It might have worked out, but the more I hear the more it sounds like they were intending to muddle it all up and make too many connections too soon. But then, that's always been one of my issues with the show.

I'm pretty broken up about both SGU and Caprica. Both were shows that dared to go outside the sci-fi comfort zone, to really explore new ways of telling stories on television and do something else than a cop show or a lawyer show or a heroes-in-space show.

I'm one of the bitter former franchise fans who can't stand Brad Wright anymore, so SGU was pretty much a non-starter, unfortunately. Case of knowing too much about the people behind the camera ruining my impression of what's in front. Sorry for your cancellation, though - that always sucks.
