New year, new resolutions to watch more shows, time to make new fandom friends! There hasn't been a multi-fandom meme for a little while, so I thought it was as good a start to 2011 as any :)

Please cross post anywhere and everywhere you like - but please don't spam comms that usually don't welcome memes!

If we weren't already friends I'd totally friend you based on this ;)

But really I wanted to say WATCH FARSCAPE!! I've watched 2 seasons in a week and frak me if it isn't one of the best things I've ever watched. Do it :D

LMAO - thank you! :)

It's genuinely not something I've been skiving off on - I watch it every time it comes on tv and I'm home. I've just literally never been able to afford the box sets. I've been convinced of its awesomeness for quite some time!

The convention in question is, of course, AT5 and not AT% - which I am certain would be some sort of fantastic mathematical Star Wars gathering, but is not currently an actual event.

aaaww Mac/Harm. I miss that ship. There may be a JAG thon in my near future...

I miss it too... most fic-able ship ever in my opinion!

I totally approve of JAG marathons! Let me know when you have one so I can flail at you ;)
