Max Headroom: Have you any idea how successful censorship is on TV? Don't know the answer? Hmm... successful, isn't it? (2x07 - Lessons)

Monday, November 22, 2010: Caprica; The Things We Lock Away (2010)
Zoe (angel): He's got plenty of time for you when he wants to steal an idea.
Zoe: He's not stealing anything from me.
Zoe (angel): You know what would infuriate him? Beating him at the thing he's best at.
Zoe: I don't want to beat him. Besides... I can design a chassis. It's not the same as making a robot.
Zoe (angel): Think of something bigger.
Zoe: And what would I create?
Zoe (angel): Life's a good start, I think.
This episode contains a lot of major turning points in the Caprica storyline. My favourite arc (as if you can't tell from the quotes) is the scenes in New Cap City between the Zoe and Tamara avatars. But it also has major setup for the relationship between Amanda Graystone and Clarice Willow, not to mention how much of a threat the Willow's must see Lacy is they're willing to hold her captive in their attic and force her to go to a Gemenon STO training program.

Monday, February 07, 2011: Stargate SG-1; The Pegasus Project (2006)
McKay: And it's exponentially proportional to size… which means the energy required to create a connection with a Supergate would far exceed that of an ordinary Gate. It'd be like… putting together a saint bernard and a chihuahua.
Vala: And the problem with that would be…??
McKay: well, obviously it's a question of, uh… oh, I see… You're umm… mocking me…aren't you?
Vala: What? Oh… Um, no. I'm not from Earth. I honestly didn't get the reference.
I love this episode for the interaction between the two frontline Stargate teams, particularly Sheppard and Mitchell, and it was awesome to see Weir on SG-1 again. Even McKay being a creep around Carter wasn't enough to spoil this for me.

Monday, February 14, 2011: Eureka; Maneater (2007)
Deputy Lupo: First off, I was totally insane before. For the record, I do not now, nor have I ever wanted to jump you. You believe me, right?
Sheriff Carter: Well, I don't know. I mean, maybe you just got tired of staring at Lake Carter, and you had to take a dip.
Deputy Lupo: Okay, you're making me nauseous.
This episode... well, to be completely honest, it just very silly. But it deserves points, because although the episode uses the mandatory-for-a-scifi-series 'everybody wants (characters) because of x), the writers used it well. Maneater has all the character interaction Eureka is loved for and the cheesiness is just extra. I could make a long list of all the awesome quotes from the episode, but that would be really long, so I'll hold off for now and maybe do so in a later post.
