You know how when you were a kid and you'd be cold and your parents would say 'go and put a jumper on' instead of turning the heat up and you would end up swaddled in clothes because the house was freezing? These days I find myself quite deliberately wearing things which are not warm at all but which I very much want to wear and putting the heat up because that is one of the pleasures of adulthood. Mind you, I live in Los Angeles so it never gets very cold but I put the heat on anyway.

Of course, the downside of this is that I am destroying the environment through excessive use of fuel, but I assuage my guilty conscience with all the years I didn't have a car and had to travel through Los Angeles using what they optimistically call a mass transit system.

I don't get this show really. I've been dilgently watching it (I'm up to the fourth season) and I don't mind the puppets. And I really like Pilot and Aeryn Sun. What I do mind are episodes like 'Lava is a many splendored thing.' How could you actually write something this awful? It's the most appalling episode ever. Oh yes, and I say this as someone who has seen the one in the first season where Crichton grows a mad beard after being left on some planet and it looks like he stapled a beaver to his face.

I feel with this show that that there are some really great things going for it: Moya (I'm a real sucker for sentient ships), ill-sorted band on the run from superior forces, some fun characters, but it gets ruined by some really puerile writing every 5th episode.
