Oded Fehr’s going to be on Stitchers, as a regular/semi-regular/recurring is my impression. So I watched first two episodes and here are my thoughts. No spoilers.


The premise is interesting if not entirely original (Tru Calling came right to mind) and right up my alley… but everything else so far sucks IMHO. I’m not sure whether it’s trying to be a comedy or a drama, the main character is unrelatable and cold, no one can act (especially the guest stars on episode 2) except maybe the girl who plays the room mate (I’d have loved for her to play the main character) and it’s like everyone is rushing through their lines/scenes in an effort to create a feeling of excitement and urgency.

I think I read somewhere that Oded will appear first in episode 9 (I could be wrong) and frankly, I’ll be surprised if the show makes it that far. If things don’t get better, Oded will elevate the show by about 150% simply by sharing space with the other actors – he won’t even have to say anything! If things don’t improve, in my book, this is the second worst thing Oded’s been in; only Drool is worse (I never did make it through that one). I’m actually kind of surprised that he signed on, but maybe the project looked different on page…

In a weird way, it overall reminds me of those sort of campy 1990s scifi tv shows like Sliders and The Sentinel, with the exception that those had their own brand of charm which isn’t a bad thing because I very much enjoyed them. Just that I don’t really see much charm in this one. Had this been made in the 1990s I think I would’ve been completely happy with it. But a decade of shows like Lost, Battlestar Galactica, The 100, Fringe… I expect more.

… Just my .02 cents.

I had been trying to decide whether to open a dedicated site to house my The X Files screencaps on and then came the news of the revival of the series, which decided it for me: The X Files Source is my newest fansite 🙂

I’m having major problems with the last month or so – it keeps insisting “server not available” to me after a little while, or even when I try to go there after like 2 or 3 days. Even though and all the check-if-site-is-up-or-not sites tell me the site is loading fine. Adding my IP to the server firewall hasn’t helped. So I’ve asked my host to move it to another server, in hopes to solve it. The move will happen ASAP and I will let you know when it’s done.

Something is going on with the server hosting

It worked a few hours ago but is now giving the 500 internal server error. I’m keeping an eye on it and if it doesn’t fix itself in an hour or so, I’ll report it.

EDIT: techs are working on it!

Here are the few icons I’ve made since my last icon post. 1-2 and 15 were made for iconsomething @ Livejournal back in February, I think. I’m very happy with them. Also really like how the McQueen and Damphousse icons turned out (3, 6-8). The Mummy Returns icons were made for a forum, and they don’t adhere to LJ requirements because of that.

Total Icon Count: 15

Star Trek TOS [1-2]
Space: Above And Beyond [3-9]
The Mummy Returns [10-14]
Stargate: Atlantis [15]



Star Trek TOS
Space: Above And Beyond
