Dragon Stank

Dragon Storm, Saturday, SCI-FI channel:  I want my two hours back.

I sat through that rubish tonight.  I had it recorded on TiVo.  TiVo is great and all, and someday I'll write a glowing review and share all my wonderful experiences, but tonight the whole experience just sort of stank.  I caught glimpses of ads for Dragon Storm during my recordings of Stargate SG1.  I've been watching Stargate in full throttle mode since I picked up TiVo last year.  I had never watched the series and now am hooked, seeing all past season at a thunderous clip as I record 7 to 8 episodes a week.  The ads looked a bit cheese ball, so I should have taken warning, but nothing prepared me for just how bad it was.

Let's just say that the whole show ran like the nightmare of a really bad D&D session.  I must have rolled a 1 and failed by sense-motive skill.  Or maybe I should have trained up in sense-stupid.  It was an 'impulse' record, and once it was up on the menu it was destined to be watched.  I was not all my fault either.  My wife was suckered in too.   I think we'll need to cleanse ourselves of television for a while.  We might just skip tomorrows Stargate's altogether.  But that would put us a day behind.

Why didn't we turn it off?  Well, we where both sort of vegetables after the day we've had.  I don't even know how to start on that one yet.  I'll have to mull it over in my sleep and see what I come up with.  It's likely I'll see clearly in a dream, just like Gilligan and the radio, and then maybe there will be something to read tomorrow.

But I digress
