Life on Mars (Gene & Sam Leap over Desks
Guuuuuuys, I don't think I'll ever stop loving Sam/Gene. I. just. love them.



Gene grabs Sam's coat as he's going nuts with the radio. For some reason, this kills me.

(I also, for the first time, realised how Gene's probably trying to see if Sam knows about drugs the same way he knows in this episode --- testing whether to tell him about Stu. I mean, had the show any real continuity. As opposed to it all apparently being entirely accidental. But let's pretend, yes?)

Their love is so epic and pure.

This post brought to you by me attempting to write fic and rewatching the show instead.

I haven't been paying them much attention lately, but posts like this just make me fall in love with them all over again ♥

I hope you're writing Sam and Gene on the Wii (can't remember where I saw the post where you mentioned you'd like to see this). I've just been playing Mario Kart racing with my three boys and the competition between the two eldest is quite fierce. Of course, no. 1 son always wins overall, but that doesn't stop the rest of us from thinking we can beat him *g*

Rewatching the show is always good, especially when you're attempting to write fic :)

I'm writing them a decade and more before the invention of the wii, I'm afraid. But that idea still makes me laugh and laugh.

...I may have saved those caps to my hard drive. By accident.

I hate that accidental right-click-save-as virus. It's a total pain.

I have more than one OTP -- technically I don't think this is supposed to be possible *g* -- but *this* is the show where I'm proudest of the canon by far and away.

Every time I sit down to watch it I tell myself it can't be as good as I remember I'm bloody delighted to realize that yes it is... and actually better than I remember.

This also, again, explains why I want nothing to do with A2A. Nope, not having it.
11th-Jul-2010 05:20 pm (UTC)
I have a miniature OTP? Tim/Tony - YAY! And, er, I'm kind of far more mad about Arthur/Merlin than I ever let on. Also, John/Aeryn have a special spot in my heart. Ooh, ooooooh! Fry/Leela. But the only OTP I totally, absolutely, go melty-kneed and heart-eyed for are Sam/Gene, fo sho. And LoM is definitely canon of canons when it comes to my shipping preferences, since I don't ship in my other favourite shows (FUTURAMA SO DOES NOT COUNT.) Basically, Sam/Gene 4eva and eva.

That last pic is possibly one of the sexiest pics of Gene ever - and let's face it, he's sex on legs as it is. Sigh.
11th-Jul-2010 05:21 pm (UTC)
And he's just been awesome, too. He's sex on legs and he has just been SO INSIGHTFUL. AND DEEP. AND WONDERFUL. AND HE'S STARING AT SAM ADORINGLY. AND. AND. AND \O/!

They never shot Gene and Alex like that, because, until much of the last series, the direction on A2A always sucked and blowed? ALSO, they had practically a fifth of Sam and Gene's chemistry? Also, Sam and Gene forever? :D :D :D ♥

*loves madly*

11th-Jul-2010 07:04 pm (UTC)
*also loves madly* Er!
11th-Jul-2010 06:30 pm (UTC)
I've just noticed it looks a bit like Gene has more than one button undone in the lovehearts pic. T'is semi-hidden by his tie. IDK why that makes me so happy but it /does/. XD

We love you when you love Sam/Gene!

I totally hearted the same parts of that restaurant scene. The caps! I die!

I don't have to pretend very hard with LoM.

Alex didn't *need* Gene the way Sam did (though v. versa could have been argued, if ...), and they wasted a lot of time cramming in contrived Alex-in-jeopardy scenes. Bah. What could have been.
12th-Jul-2010 12:19 am (UTC)
♥ Love all around!

(Alex also never truly understood Gene the way Sam did, until, like, the last episode? And even then... I am just 'bleugh'.)
11th-Jul-2010 07:38 pm (UTC)
I'd just like to say yeahhhhhhhh

12th-Jul-2010 12:18 am (UTC)
Was it good for you, baby? ;)

I need to rewatch it again. I'm still catching up with stuff from this past TV season, so maybe I'll do a rewatch in August.

I only rewatched this episode, for canon research. I could have read the transcript, but then my DVD mysteriously fell into my hand...

*happily* Lovely picspam and insightful comments and may I just say, squee?

Sometimes you really do have to watch the show instead of writing fic. It tops up your petrol tank! (And I say that as someone who would probably love the result if you tried your hand at rewriting the phone book.)

(One of) the other awesome things about this ep? Gene's POV during the Disco 2000 bit. Proving that 1973 is real dammit, and that Gene is far more than an outrageously charismatic figment of Sam's imagination.
12th-Jul-2010 12:17 am (UTC)
I am not sure "THERE ARE MOTHERFUCKING LOVEHEARTS IN THIS MOTHERFUCKING SCENE" is necessarily that insightful, but thank you :D

I am a massive fan of the music switch in this episode. That and the scene where Sam falls asleep but we're still seeing everything are all the canon I need to say it's all real, dammit.
12th-Jul-2010 01:13 am (UTC)
YES. I would love Sam/Gene more than they love each other, except that is impossible.

12th-Jul-2010 01:17 am (UTC)
Oh man. I may have watched that, like, for waaaay too long. ♥ ♥ ♥
