comfort viewing

April 1, 2020

I’m back to watching Babylon 5 because it turns out Captain Sheridan is very soothing. Part of why he’s very soothing is that most of the time he’s this “Gosh, gee, well, that’s really great!” kind of guy, like the nice principal archetype. But then he gets pushed, and then he goes straight to taking no shit and he will hurt you. If he does, you definitely deserved it.

A good guy to have in your corner, you know?

But Marcus gets all the best lines, and here’s the one from last night’s episode:

“You know, I used to think it was awful that life was so unfair. Then I thought, wouldn’t it be much worse if life were fair, and all the terrible things that happen to us come because we actually deserve them? So, now I take great comfort in the general hostility and unfairness of the universe.”

    An unfair universe just means we have to have hope. One step. One day. A new way of doing things.

    Friends, family and pets make this world better.

    Bingeing Xena. Could use some of her kickass badness to get things done.

    I apologize… {insert factual circumstances justifying “impolite” accusation of bad faith after a needless tragedy here}. After all — it’s the thought that counts.

    Bingeing Monty Python’s Flying Circus — one episode a day.

    Also, can’t get “Always Look on the Bright Side of Life” out of my head…
