stop scrolling and just look at this picture of a baby giraffe
okay that’s all carry on
*whispers* That’s a dik-dik.
IN CASE ANY OF YOU HAVE EVER WONDERED WHAT SLEEPING GIRAFFES LOOK LIKE
This is a sleeping Canadian giraffe from the Newfoundland regions.
And now we see a unicorn watching over her mate while she sleeps.
Me too, Myka. Me too.
It looks like the cover of one of those lesbian novels from the 1950s lol
and you know who i am. NOW. ;D
YOU JUST HAD TO BRING THAT UP.
Warehouse 13 is back for just six episodes, and apparently a season’s worth of plot developments are being smushed into a short space. But even accounting for that, this show is feeling… weird this season. Like, none of the characters seem quite right. And the characters were this show’s strength. Spoilers ahead…
in which io9 agrees with everyone that has a brain over this newly-minted character atrocity.
Seriously, read this. This piece is dead-on, and it’s been written by a long-time Warehouse 13 watcher/supporter of the show, who has generally been extremely laudatory towards it, even when I did not always think the show deserved it. She also has gotten to know the show’s cast and showrunners, like Jack Kenny and Eddie McClintock, so you can tell she’s trying to be as professionally polite as she can be in her criticisms. It’s perfect and I’m thankful that someone in the larger media is calling Warehouse 13 out on its disastrous start to its final season, but particularly the abomination that was episode 5.02. Her article has nothing to do with Bering and Wells because that is not the reason there are massive issues, at this point. Instead, we see systematic problems in continuity, character integrity, overall quality of writing, and just their storytelling in general.
I hate being negative about a show that I love, but as a member of its fandom, if I feel someone is degrading something I hold dear - even if it’s the people who run the show - then I don’t think we should put our heads down and just say “Que sera sera.” Fandom is like family - we’re rooting for it and love it, but that doesn’t mean we can’t criticize it and point out when we think it’s gone astray.
Happy Anniversary to Bering & Wells - April 23, 2010
(Not to mention St. George’s Day)
