STARGATE RANT  
Note: *I'm totally blaming this on the monumental fail known as Mallozzi & Mullie.

I like when something is left simmering over a low cook fire as its smell permeates the atmosphere. You breathe in deep and let the aroma sit with you. A fragrant fruity wine that's been aerated and left out. A block of cheese that's been aged to perfection. A rack of tobacco that's been cured. Single malt whiskey from a copper distiller sat in a cask until it's alcohol content is 40% plus.

I was expecting Sam/Jack to be like Sparky where it was all organic, underplayed, unrushed, slinky and all 'huh? didn't see that one coming... Must. Ship.', instead I got this: *THUNK* *CLANK* *DRRRRROP* *SHOVE* *HINT HINT* ENOUGH WITH THE SHIPPY ANVILS! GRRR ARRRRGH! *pulls out hair* Too early. When you must contrive plots/story/moments etc, in order to force something to happen, I'm out. Shoving a ship down my throat like a fist with a rotten fish head squishing out of your fingers or hitting me over the head with a thousand pound rock rife with moss and bacteria is a sure fire way to make me stop watching.

The sad part of it all is, I wanted to like Sam/Jack. Please don't hate me my friends who ship Sam/Jack hard core. I tried! I really really really tried. *sadface* ;___;

I'm gonna go play in my corner of the sandbox now...

That is all.

"Shoving a ship down my throat like a fist with a rotten fish head squishing out of your fingers"

Ewww... Very vivid imagery there.

Same, I disliked Sam/Jack because it was so forced (and in my mind very insincere) in the later seasons. Kinda just had to roll my eyes and fast forward, it left a bad taste in my mouth.

Maybe that's why I liked Shep/Weir, cause the writers didn't really interfere with it too much.

Aww pet. I love Sam/Jack but I understand where your coming from. Sometimes it really is forced and I hate those bits.

I still love you, have no fear! *huggles*

I agree with obsessed_psyco, there definitely were some shippy moments that make even the shippers want to bang their heads against the table in embarrassment. I love S/J, but I have issues with how it was treated too. I mean, in the first three seasons, we had these lovely, cute little hints of the fact that Sam was crushing on Jack and that Jack thought she was awesomesauce. Then came the fourth season, with its big shippy anvils. Those didn't bother me so much because I was already sold on the pairing, so they just made me flail.

But then came my problem. After the fourth season, there was next to nothing. The shippy anvils disappeared, but so too did about 99.99% of the tiny, cutsey, friendshippy-maybe-shippy moments that really made the pairing for me. Season 5 had a few, Season 6 one or two, then Season 7 and 8 there was practically nothing. And what little they did have was clearly there just for the sake of dragging it out and leaving the shippers in suspense. Which kind of pissed me off. Going years with absolutely no real confirmation one way or another was really very irritating.

So yeah, even a lot of the shippers have issues with how the show treated Sam/Jack. *pouts*

And that, is how I prefer ship. THAT'S what would've sold me on it for a few more seasons and then have it AMP up around the seventh/eighth. *sigh* I guess that says something when the shppers are not satisfied with the execution of it and for that, I'm SORRY cos that totally sucks! Ugh, stupid PTBs. How do they get so much say ANYWAY?! They're supposed to be making the show for US not themselves. *grumble grumble*

lol. I shipped Jack/Sam until the momumental fail known as Mallozzi & Mullie (well, mostly Mallozzi, Mullie's fairly decent).

I hate what they did to SG-1 and SGA. It still hurts. :(

Mallozzi is a douche. When I saw that his name was on the Book of Latin that Daniel was referencing I threw up in my mouth a little. I don't know much about the Mullie guy, except that he was less vocal about the DEMISE of the show(s) than the big D-bag.

I can't really watch the credit roll without boo-hissing at the screen when their names pop up.
