Today I came home and fell asleep at 7.30 and then woke up lying on my bed, still fully dressed at 11.30. What the hell? Now it's 1.30 in the morning and I can't sleep. I am thinking of blaming Eliot Spitzer. In fact, I may blame him for everything from now on as it will probably make me feel tons better. And I think I will only read about puppies and Korean soaps for the next while. And if they disappoint me there will be crying and wailing and gnashing of teeth and possible internet withdrawal for a while.

Anyhow! I've been wondering about starting to watch Stargate. I've seen a fair few episodes recently but all from different seasons. The problem is: 10 seasons? That's a pretty big time commitment and I actually don't usually finish TV series if there's more than 4 seasons to catch up on. I barely got to the end of Babylon 5 - and I only made it through because of my deep Delenn love. (And Susan. But, woes, she was gone at the end! And replaced with the Scoggins abomination.) I never finished Farscape. So I think the odds of me getting through 10 seasons of anything are pretty low. Is there are particularly good season* that I could watch? Or could I start in one of the later seasons?

*And by particularly good I mean 'with lots of Carter.'

ETA: I've gotten really bad about keeping up with people's birthdays. But Happy Birthday to [livejournal.com profile] nutmeg3!

The first 7 seasons are often pretty Carter centric(Amanda Tapping was pregnant through a lot of s8) and the first 4-5 have men falling for her left and right.

Hmmm. Within those 7 seasons is there one you would recommend in particular? I don't care about spoilers.

Hmm...they're largely blended together now...maybe 2-4?

Thank you. ::beams::

And I never got into SG:1, so I'm no help. Sorry.

It happens to be on at a time when I usually take a break and watch mindless telly so I've started watching by default a bit.

I hope you had a good birthday!

I did - and it's continuing tonight and Sunday. :-)

You sound like me. I often catch SG:1 on SciFi, so I've got this random, totally out of order sense of it. In fact, they're marathoning it today, so I'm half-watching as I work.

I have the weirdest idea of what's going on most of the time and they keep showing 2 parters where I never see the second half. I assume they all survive and kill the aliens but maybe they've all been cloned and replaced several times for all I know.

I'm with you. MAN! THis could be great. Spilled coffee? BLAME ELIOT SPITZER.

It could be the next internet craze. I used to blame Robin Lane Fox (the adviser for Stone's Alexander) for everything but I like to mix it up.
