Caprica's Heavy Machinery News would just like to point out that its issue 'Gauge sizes and tititanium screws: 3" or 2"- which is optimal?' was more riveting than this week's episode. It had a certain train wreck quality (akin to reading our rival publication, Big Hulking Lumps of Movin' Metal) but not a lot else.

And that wanker Adama has confiscated our last issue in the name of 'military security.' I guess he didn't like our calendar 'Hot men and women of the Galactica fix things in their underwear,' featuring Captain Adama as Mr. Fix-it for July. Hey, we have no prurient interest - it was all for charity. Charity, I tell you.

In other news the BBC adaptation of Elizabeth Gaskell's North and South is stupendously amazing and wonderful and I am only sorry that it was not longer. Those Northern men sure know how to brood. And lead a strike. I approve of both, by the way. It is a pity that they can't combine the two for some character in a BBC drama.
There's a community recently started for it here: North and South.

ETA: Also I am reminded of the comedy series Brass which was set in a Northern town in the 1920s; it was replete with self-made men, nyphomaniac aristocrats, feisty socialists, and gormless lovers. In other words, it was excellent. Especially the inevitable statement every episode of 'there's trouble at Mill.' I wished someone had said that once in N&S - you know they were itching to.

My North and South DVDs have arrived and now I will get to see the second half, complete with feisty Margaret, glowering Thornton and whatever else Gaskell and the screenwriters can throw in! You have no idea the agony I was in, having returned the first DVD to netflix and not having the second.

Or, do you have to be good to be saved?

Spoilers for the last episode in the US ahoy )

Also I saw the first DVD of Elizabeth Gaskell's North and South and am pining to see the rest. I may or may not have ordered it online with a gift certificate I have in my enthusiam.
