So, last weekend was very very busy, only saw this episode on Monday and have been vaguely attempting to write something in the days that followed.

It's a lovely, lovely episode, and deserves far better than these scattered thoughts, but I know tonight's episode will be quite something so felt the need to post SOMETHING, before the story moved on.

So here it is. Very basic, barely cover a quarter of what I'd like, but it's better than nothing... Oh and a great deal is Promethia's, literally.

The wonderful [personal profile] lithiumdoll made me the Farscape Aeryn Sun vid of my heart! I'M SO PLEASED.

It beautifully explores Aeryn's complicated emotional connection to her PK past, and how that affected her relationships with the Moya crew. It shows her unlearning of her authoritarian upbringing and learning to fight the power. It lovingly pays tribute to her relationships with all the other characters. Oh my heart. <3333

I watched last week's episode at Continuum, while hiding from people in the committee room, and made a terrible discovery: iView streaming quality is much, much better over 4G on an iPad than over the NBN on a new desktop.

Guys.

That was pretty much the highlight of Gatiss's episode, so let's move on to the triumphant return of Rona Munro.

You never hear the spoilers. )

If you haven't heard of The Great Get Together, have a look! There might be something happening near you!!

It's in memory of Jo Cox, celebrating her message, and very much what we need right now. And just look - a media first! The Sun & Daily Mirror print a shared editorial backing The #GreatGetTogether inspired by Jo Cox, and The Telegraph and The Guardian have written a joint opinion piece celebrating #MoreInCommon. (Follow link above to see them.)

And here are four former Prime Ministers:



"We are far more united and have far more in common with each other than things that divide us."
Jo Cox, firs speech to Parliament.


(And also, you should all go watch The Last Leg. <3)

Short stories I enjoyed this month:
Some Cupids Kill With Arrows (Tansy Rayner Roberts): a delightful little confection of a story, involving speed dating and Greek gods. "Letting men finish their sentences was overrated. That was the life lesson she was taking away from speed dating night."
Light, Like a Candle Flame (Iona Sharma): Funny, moving and quietly beautiful.
