I'm a Lord of the Rings
Congratulations! You know both your Tolkien and
your Peter Jackson. May I call you a fellow
Lord of the Rings geek?
How Well Do You Know Your Lord of the Rings?

I must wait for the new Stargate season to start. I also wish the Firefly movie would come out. That was the best show and I hated to see it canceled. The writing, the characterizations, everything was utterly superb. At least I have the complete series on DVD, which is kind of depressing as it was only just the one season. I'm also looking forward to the new Stargate show, Stargate Atlantis. Double the Stargate fun!
Must get to bed soon. We have Gutter Helmet people out to give us an estimate at 10am. Then I have to get a haircut at noon and go out and buy some Magic: the Gathering cards. I found a write up of some very cool and devious Angel decks that I want to make. So now I have to go to a place I know and buy individual cards.
Current Mood: Booyah!

I was never able to get into the Stargate television series. I've heard nothing but good things about, but whenever I see Richard Dean Anderson, I only think of two things:
1) He's MacGuyver (sad as it is to be typecaste)
2) From what I've seen, his Jack O'Neill isn't as deep of an emotional character as Kurt Russel was in the film.
One of these days I may actually sit down and watch watch it.
I don't see MacGuyver anymore. He is a totally different character. And I would say that he does have the depth of an emotion as the Kurt Russel character. In many ways, I found the Kurt Russel character to be a little two dimensional. Sure he was broken up about his kid's accident, but beyond that there was a whole lot of emptiness. The Richard Dean Anderson character is much more well rounded and full of little quirks. And he is just as deep, if not more so.
Although I thought it was funny at one point, in the show, when a character said to Jack "We'll have to 'MacGuyver' something to make it work."
It's one of the best shows out there and my favorite. The premise fits into a lot of things I like. Exploring the galaxy, trying to find new technology to save the day and also to improve earth's technology.
Now, I just wish Firefly would come back.
And he's hot. I once had a professor that looked a lot like him.
So you don't mind all the grey hair he has?
