Dear Joe Mallozzi, Brad Wright, and the rest of you jokers,

I was going to write a long rant about how pissing off your fanbase is a bad idea, and if you're going to say, "You just don't get it" to a whole bunch of science fiction fans (read: overeducated sarcastic jerks with too much time on their hands), you better hope like hell that you're right and they're wrong, and how you can all generally just eat me.

But then I realized everything I needed to say could be summed up in cat macros. So,

Of course, any time you say anything, I'm all

and it's hard not to think

But I read it, y'know? And as predicted, you're like

and I'm like

Then you're all

and I'm all

And then you're all

[Image removed due to a copyright claim. Was a picture of a sad cat in front of a laptop that read "they r make fun of me".

And to whoever made the claim- sorry for reupping it. Photobucket didn't tell me there was a copyright claim on it, or I wouldn't have.]

And I'm all

But seriously, it's been a long day, and

so, in conclusion:

Via nightdog_barks, did you see this cogent SGU critique/rebuttal/smackdown from the Chicago Tribune? http://featuresblogs.chicagotribune.com/entertainment_tv/2009/11/stargate-universe-syfy-.html

I did indeed. It was one of the things that led me to my current state, honestly.

Tell it! Love this post so much!

This? This is awesome. And made me slightly happy instead of rage-y. Particularly the last pic.

Why didn't I think of this solution before Dragon*Con? I could have just had posters of cat macros made so that I could wave them around any time Kevin Grazier talked about how great he was and how his science was the only science, fo' realz, y'all.

THIS. Rock on.

God, I really hate these guys. As if I didn't have enough reasons, I was just reading about the "Water" episode of SGU, which recycles the A-plot of "Hide and Seek" from SGA! A flying darkness entity swarm of alien bugs attacks a dude and endangers them all, while sucking much-needed power water from their supplies, and they solve the crisis by luring the entity swarm through the Stargate with power water and closing the 'gate.

Who keeps giving these people money? They're awful! I can't believe they get millions of dollars per episode and they just waste it like this, ripping off other shows and even recycling themselves. Don't they have any shame?

Seriously? Couldn't they have chosen a slightly less iconic SGA episode to rip off?

I'm suddenly reminded of why I love you so much.

We're 4 episodes into it, and it's telling when Son #1 (an avid fan of SF) turns and says "This is boring" and Teenage Fangirl's comment is "I can't tell any of them apart, and I really don't care about them".

And the general family attitude of 2 SF-loving adults and 2 small mammals is "Let's just try and watch a few more" NOT because it's gripping and compelling and because we care about what happens to the characters, but "because maybe it will get better". Well that's a sad sad commentary. :)

As he says in your link'SGU' seems to be a love it or hate it sort of show. and the answer is YES, we don't like it not because we don't like him (although that's a perfectly good reason), but because it's clear that it sucks*.

My crystal ball says that if the show does fail, he'll pull out all the stops and blame it on the undeserving bad reviews and those mean, bad fans, never admitting that it was because it sucked.

Hahaha, greatest smackdown ever. *loves*
10th-Nov-2009 09:00 am (UTC)
I freaking luff this! You know what this reminds me of? The fanlib fail. Were you around for any of that? Seriously, all these guys could swap out for each other and no one would know the difference. I expect fic of them slashed with their Marty-Stu creations any day now.

Mallozzi has spoken out about the ZOMGMEAN!!!!11! reviews too? Why am I not surprised.

I haven't watched any episodes of SGU - not because it's not shown in my country, but because of all the disappointment I've read from all sorts of different people. I'm a huge fan of both SG1 and Atlantis, and I was eagerly awaiting SGU - but then everyone's reaction got me disappointed. And it seems it's not getting any better. I only have articles and comments to know what's wrong with the show, and I'm not saying I won't give it a try if it comes my way, but...

Nevertheless, even without knowing exactly what's going on, the cat macros had me rolling on the floor. It's perfection itself. :-P

Seriously, all conversations with these clowns should be done in macros because speaking to them as if they were mature adults has failed utterly.

YES YES YES YES. Also: YES. I LOLed a lot. :D

(I just realized that sabinetzin on Dth is only a fic archive and not your journal, wah! That would explain why all the posts are HERE, then. *makes note to be more intelligent in the future*)

A complete non-sequiter: Until today I have been somewhat surprised whenever you express love for James Spader. But now innoittaa has introduced me to Boston Legal and I have to say OMG JAMES SPADER.
