Various and sundry

Am alive. Not actually especially busy, just not so much with the online over the weekend. Finally ordered sorely-needed additional RAM for the six-year-old desktop (considering it currently has all of 256MB, "sorely-needed" may be an understatement). Saw Star Trek twice (one regular, one IMAX), loved. Watched Dollhouse finale (loved, with some oddities), Harper's Island (slowly improving, still insufficient Gina), and In Plain Sight (I love our crazy Mary, yes I do, and Marshall is also increasingly of the awesome).

Feeling thinky about several of these; thinky may eventually become posty. For the moment, however, would rather read what you lot are up to. :-)

I can't wait to hear what you thought about the Dollhouse finale. I loved it - and you were so right about Saunders. But the whole thing with Topher - now I wonder if the personality was based on someone he knew, or Whiskey herself was someone he knew beforehand.

And this had better not be the last of Miracle Laurie on the show! She's my favorite!

It is interesting that Saunders specifically stated that Topher "thought it was so important" for her to hate him. She didn't read the file on who she was before, but apparently she read enough to come to that conclusion, instead of assuming it was one of those unintentional along-for-the-ride traits, like Negotiator!Echo's asthma in the first ep. I would have figured it meant the original Saunders hated him, and kept it in check as well as Whiskey!Saunders does. I mean, she looks disgusted at him a lot, but she doesn't work against him at all.

I confess I expected the original Saunders to be different, but not a white-haired guy! :-D

If we haven't seen the last of the show, I'm willing to bet we haven't seen the last of Madeline. I still want to know what's up with all those aliases that came up from her fingerprints. They can't be from imprint personae -- the handlers would never let things get out of hand enough for her to be fingerprinted once, let alone all those times. If she is/was a con artist? Ballard probably still hasn't met the "real" her...

Trek so ROCKED! Saw it twice on IMAX. Need to see again too.

I am full of squeee!

I wonder how long it'll be before we see screencaps from bootlegs. I want to make a "squee!" icon of Gaila turning around and grinning at Uhura when they get assigned to their ships.

I would love to hear your thoughts on both Dollhouse and Star Trek. I already saw Star Trek in a regular theater and tomorrow I'll be seeing it at the new IMAX theater (my first IMAX experience!). It is a shame there is so little chance of getting more Dollhouse as I was enjoying the characters so much.

My Trek thoughts at this point are pretty well covered by "OMGSQUEEEEEEEEEE!!!"

My Dollhouse thoughts, OTOH, are many and twisty, and will take a while to formulate into any sort of post.
