I want *colours*

Dear Merlin Vidders,

WTF is up with all the colour filters? Merlin as a show has such a vibrant colour pallet. This makes watching it so pretty and should make vidding it super pretty. Why, then Merlin vidders, are you stripping the lovely source material of it's colours by having all your vids in sepia or shades of blue or anything else that drains the colours. There are very specific reasons to use colour filters! You don't just use them because you feel like it!

Some Love,

Oh Bad Science, How You Hurt My Brain...

So, I'm currently in the middle of a Terminator rewatch. I haven't talked about it much here on my journal, but I'm doing 3 Day Novel and writing a Terminator fic for it (although now it's morphed into this giant multi fandom 'verse, god). So, to prepare for next weekend, I'm rewatching all of Terminator.

So far I've made it through all the movies, and am just finishing up S1 of SCC. While rewatching though, I noticed a horrible piece of Bad!Science, that I just can't get over.

When Derek was bleeding out on the table, Charlie says that they need some AB blood, the rarest blood type. Cameron volunteers that Sarah is type O, the universal donor, but Charlie insists that they need AB blood. John asks to be tested, and image that, he has type AB blood.

Now, if you know anything about genetics, you know that the reason *why* AB blood is so rare, is because your parents would have had to have had blood types, A, B or AB. O is recessive! If one of your parents had type O blood, you can't have type AB!!!

However, due to this horrible piece of science, [info] kronos999 came up with this awesome fic idea that I'm going to make her write. *Make* her. *nods*

So, I'll admit it, I still use Yahoo Groups. This is mostly because I'm an email junkie and like having things appear in my inbox that I don't have to respond to. I really don't know why I use the groups though, because often they annoy me.

Take a message sent to one of my SCC groups last night, saying that one of the reasons SCC was canceled was because there was no audience it really appealed to. There weren't enough hot women for guys to be interested, and of course *girls* would *never* be interested in this kind of show.

So I finally jumped posted to the group saying, "Hi, I'm a girl, and I enjoyed the show, same with the other female friends that I know watch the show." To which the guy replied saying "How could it!?" Although, to be fair, he went on to describe why it doesn't appeal to men (or, you know him, more than all men, although he was trying to make it about everyone) either.

So here's a question to the SCC and Terminator fans on my flist, what is it you liked about the show/movie.
