Fannish side dishes

BSG webisodes
Um... is anyone else having a 'huh?!' reaction with these? I just... I know they're short, and I know they're about side characters and I know they have a limited budget and all, but seriously I couldn't be more underwhelmed. The S3 trailers though?! WOAH. *loves*

Aquaman
I watched the Aquaman pilot over the weekend. The echoes of Smallville were surreal--it all felt so familiar. From the character and plot construction to the cinematography and the ott phallic imagery (lighthouse! *dies*). Apart from the weird deja-vu-ness I was actually pretty impressed. I think Aquadude is gorgeous and a great actor. He had some terribly flat lines to work with (heh! no surprise there!) and managed to bring real emotion to them. I also loved the evilFishyGirl--Kara!girl was genuinely frightening in that role. The special effects were brilliant (loved the plane-Aquadude chase sequence) and I had a lot of fun watching the pilot (though I was sad that the hot guy with the message and matching glowy seahorse necklace had to die--coz WOAH with the slash potential!). I actually experienced a momentary pang of regret that the show didn't get the go-ahead. Though I'm delighted that they co-opted it's best asset to be on Smallville in Season 6. Woo! (I would have loved him to have played opposite Lois in Aqua--ah well.)
