Default January 15

Okay, let's do this thing! My original plan was to whip this up for January 1, but as you'll see, it expanded a bit -- mostly because I wanted to give a couple of my favourite new sf shows their first appearance at 5M.net. Here are four, count 'em six (wait, what?), new Top 10 lists:


And finally -- no joke here --

Enjoy!

5MV no longer exists! 5M.net does! Look, I love "5MV" as much as anyone else, but the apron strings have to be cut and--

Picard: The line must be drawn HERE!

Anyway, good stuff.

...Is it a coincidence that before I read this thread I'd put And the Glory from Messiah on?

No, seriously.

Good stuff, Zeke. 'Specially liked the Janeway one.

Thanks for the warm reception, guys. (Low turnout, but I could hardly expect otherwise.)

I thought about that, but the fact that "better" is a real word makes it confusing. (It would also make the choice easy.)

Great top-ten lists, Zeke! Very funny.

I especially liked (WARNING: Spoilers for those who haven't seen season two of Heroes):

Quote:
Reed: Stop hanging out with Irish gangs
And:
Quote:
Nathan: Spin this assassination attempt into great PR via comparisons to Reagan... oh, and survive it
This one took me a while to understand:
Quote:
Monica: Whatever your resolution is
But I thought it was really funny once I got it.

Anyway, thanks for the update, Zeke! I hope's there's more to come (especially more Heroes content).

I generally overstate his case, but I'm pretty against him. Not only is he painfully boring and uninteresting, but he drags down Claire in every scene she has with him. In season 1, I thought Claire was such a great character that she could be paired with anyone and be interesting (anyone in Bennet family, Zach, Peter, Nathan, Ma Petrelli, Haitian,...), but West disproved that.

Hey, I just noticed--there's no 47 in that subroutine error! How'd THAT happen?

Con-tent! Pointy-Five is alive!


Yah. I don't know where that came from either. Anyway. Nice to see new stuff, though I think I'll avoid the Heroes list for the moment what with only being current up to the end of series one, and all.

In that case, it can only mean that

in hex.

And, otherwise, a big welcome back to 5MV, an abbreviation I will continue to use for as long as it provokes Nate the Great into correcting me with hilarious dudgeon. I admit I bounced over here today and very nearly swore an oath out of surprise. I then laughed uproariously for a while. Thanks for the update, Zeke.

"Hilarious" should, of course, be pronounced "high-larryus" in that phrase, because that makes it just that much more amusing to say aloud.

This is going to sound silly, but I found myself thinking of other ways we could use "5MV" to indicate the site without implying Voyager is all we do. The best I could come up with is Five-Minute Voyages. Pretty silly, huh?
