Okay, shop. Who wants a story about the adventures of the admin as a young troublemaker? It involves explosives.

Hello shop and fediverse! Are you at ? Because I am, and would be delighted to meet you. I look like my profile photo and I've got a yellow flower pinned to my white head-covering.

(See also Merlyn, which I WANTED to love, but all the drama about Morgan was like teflon to my affections. So glad Katie McGrath is on Supergirl now, where the weekly punchline seems to be that she's NOT the traitor).

You can do a "this person is tortured and might turn to the light" for a little while, but that does actually need to pay off (which is why Baltar didn't work for me). The audience already knows the person's a traitor. After a while, the rest of the cast's continued obliviousness just gets frustrating.

I felt the same way about BSG. Whenever I would watch an episode, I'd like it--but the sustained meta-plot of Baltar stabbing everyone in the back--I just bounce right off that. To me, betrayal is only interesting if it's someone choosing their principles over their loved ones. Ensign Ro in TNG? YES. "Snake in the grass" stories like BSG and Lost In Space? To me they're chasing the least interesting questions.

So I've been thinking about Lost In Space and why I'm not terribly in a rush to see it and I think what it boils down to is this: I don't like traitor stories.

I am paralyzed by a choice between a solid white pocket square and a paisley white-on-white, and likewise between a solid black bow tie and a paisley black-on-black. This is my life now, staring at accessories.
