Rob> Any chance you can call the oil company now and have them siphon it back out? You might have to still pay delivery charges, but at least it'd be less.

And dangit, I was meaning to remember your birthday! I had it firmly fixed in my mind last month...
Happy belated/very merry unbirthday, in any case.

B!

Robert- You live out on the east coast, right? I heard a lot of those oil heaters are still around. I have a friend who survived one exploding on him cause the owner didn't maintain it.

ARGH! *bangs head against the wall*

I come home today to find a notice in my mailbox that my friendly neighborhood heating oil company just filled up my tank. I've been meaning to call them for WEEKS to ask them not to do so, but never got around to it. I figured that the season was over and they weren't doing anymore fills.

Now I just topped off my heating oil tank with $800 of fuel oil. And I was planning to switch over to GAS this year. Which means I need to empty my oil tank and remove it. Which means, at best, selling off the oil at a fraction of it's price, and at worst, PAYING to have it pumped dry. *bangs his head against the wall again* What a wonderful birthday present. Argh!

Time for alcohol and sleep. Wheeee.

Robert

B! and gedoena> Have you guys watched the special features and/or listened to the commentary?

Ged> I think that River being trained as an assassin was always farily evident... the who and the why of it still remain. Did anyone take it as a shock that she came to the forefront to slaughter a mass of baddies? Doubtful.

I think they really wanted it to be an ENDING, as in no hope of it ever coming back, and nothing to extrapolate possibilities from.

B!

B! - To us making the big mystery about the sister turn out to be "she is a high-speed zombie killer" was a huge disappointment. I also don't see why they had to tie everything off in such a permanent way that they could never come back....why not leave openings for potential future resurrection or at least comic book/novelization as they have done with other Joss Weidon series.

ged> There's only so much you can put in 2 and a half hours. That's basically the space of 2 and a half episodes. I think it sadly tied off all the loose ends specifically so nothing else could be made of the series. The arcs that were written were probably initially meant to last seasons, and instead, the whole series got capped after 17 eps, two of which didn't get aired. So yeah, the need to tie everything off neatly probably took precedence over introducing new material. And who knows what the producers were saying behind the scenes, about, "We want you to include this and this and this, and leave this out."
B!

Luna - well, yaeh, I guess....
...actually those are most of the HBO shows I've seen :)

B! Shepard's back-story was one of the things we were really waiting for. We also were massively disappointed in what the big secret about the doctor's sister turned out to be. Overall we just felt cheated...we found it hard to believe this is just a cut-down versiion of the planned ending...if it is, then that planned ending was a lot less cool than we felt the build-up was leading to.

gedoena> Ah I see. Then yes, but that is throughout most HBO shows these days, isn't it?

B!> I love the movie in all it's faults... but it did seem to mostly focus on telling us how the reavers came about and didn't seem to have much time for anything else...so in some ascpects it was a little lacking, but I think it still made for a good story.
