Dear DS9,

I am quite enjoying this same-sex relationship/marriage commentary episode. It's fun. And, thus far, actually good. And I love that the taboo isn't the same-sex aspect but, instead, the "Trills that knew one another" aspect.

I'd appreciate it a lot more, though, if your 'verse had same-sex relationships in the first place. Cop-outs are annoying. Even if you were written over a decade ago.

Grumbling and--WAIT, WHY DOES KIRA HAVE PURPLE HAIR IN THIS SCENE, IS IT THE LIGHTING OR IS IT ACTUALLY HER HAIR, YES I HAVE THE ATTENTION SPAN OF A RABBIT

Livejournal! I have missed you!!!

I need to share more DS9 thoughts with you. :D

Season 4 remains good. I even loved Bashir as James Bond going "Honey," though mainly because Garak did all the eye-rolling for me.

Gender politics remain terrible, and I don't know whether I'm frustrated or amused that Kira and Samantha Carter are treated about the same in their relationships (powerful men in love with them, yay gender essentialism despite what else might be important about this character).

There's some great Kira/Sisko friendship stuff going on, though, and Dax is her own character, and Odo is awesome. As is Garak. And Dukat. Even Sisko's interesting now, and Bashir (on his own, despite the sexism) is growing on me. The character interactions are all interesting and work. Absolutely loving the overarching plot, though I can see where all the B5 rivalry came from.

I am amused that it took a literal growth of beard for this show to suddenly become awesome.

ETA: Spoilers re: Garak's relationships and OH GOD EW )
