fan things  
- Since Alien is on tv, reminded me. I'm pretty excited about Neil Blomkamp doing Alien 5 as a direct sequel to Alien/Aliens and totally ignoring Alien 3/Resurrection. Because I have always hated that 3 killed off Newt and Hicks (I understand Carrie Henn was done with acting, but they could've recast Newt), and I am perfectly okay with undoing it.

- Agent Carter, I sure hope comes back! (though if I see that tumblr post about the ratings one more time I'm going to point out how fucking wrong they are) Peggy! Don't really have any deep thoughts about it though. Sadder about that being over than I care about AoS coming back, tbh. but damn it Thompson I was shipping you for ONE HOT SECOND, and then you went and ruined it.

- speaking of a show that will be canceled, I'm still really enjoying Forever. Too bad it's not immortal, too. boo. (or, to use an EJOism "TOO BAD SHE WON'T LIVE!", since apparently Blade Runner's coming back too) But Henry and Abe are just so great. and that flashback with Abigail broke my heart.

- Jane the Virgin is adorable. The actress for Petra always weirdly reminds me of Rebecca Hall, though, and it takes me a moment to readjust to it not being her.

- oops let it sit too long, bedtime

Eee, another Alien movie. I'd not heard that.

Re Agent Carter, I so hope UK TV picks it up soon. I keep hearing excellent things about it.

yes! supposedly a direct sequel to Prometheus AND this one to do a different take on ending Ripley's story. Sigourney Weaver is apparently already on board, and they're talking to Michael Biehn to bring him back too.

yeah, i read abotu that, that no one had picked it up, which is odd to me given it's got fewer eps, is still marvel, plus Haley Atwell and James d'arcy have to be better known there, than here!

I love Forever. I think it's charming, well-acted, nicely written, and just overall lovely. Sigh.

It really is all those things! they've done such a good job with the characters and at least trying with the case-of-the-week to make them something we haven't already seen a billion times. I hope they kinda see the writing on the wall and give us a real series finale of some kind to wrap it up.

I wish it had more of a fandom so there might be a chance to save it. At least Agent Carter, with roughly the same ratings has the power of fandom and the Marvel name to bring it back, but Forever is just doomed. :(

Sad face. But I think you're right. I really do love it, though, and was hoping more people would tap in to it. This is why I try not to get attached to new shows - so many die young! Also why I am avoiding Agent Carter/anything else new for now! It just makes me too sad...
