I know, it’s been a while. Life happened, and the blog got buried under things like getting married, moving, getting a new job, and getting pregnant.
But then my dear husband read this blog post to me this morning, and I was so furious that suddenly, I had to move fisking from the back burner to the front burner. And then he kept reading, and I had to move it out to the grill, and THEN into the blazing crucible out back.
Okay, I’m speaking figuratively, but that’s how bad this “critique” of Babylon 5 really is. It’s so horrifically stupid, I had to sit down at my computer and put on some opera to keep me from going insane while reading it.
Yes, it was so bad, I had to turn to Mady Mesplé to keep my brain from disintegrating and dribbling out my ears.
I suppose the author should be proud of herself; her style and content are both so disgustingly awful, it essentially forced me out of retirement.
So, who wrote this piece of tripe that wins the Most Asinine Garbage of the Internet Award . . . today, at least?
Introducing Jennifer Gesundheit . . . I mean Jennifer Giesbrecht (bless you) from that cesspool of scum and mediocrity, Tor.com. She asserts that Babylon 5 Is the Greatest, Most Terrible SF Series. Now, I’m not disputing her right to have an opinion on the show; she can think whatever she wants to about it. But when she lies about the content to further her own little agenda . . . well, she’s awakened the sleeping, (pregnant) angry blogger, and filled her with a terrible resolve.
This is going to be a very long one, because Gesundheit is very long winded, but as usual, the original content is in italics, and my response is in bold.
