Fourth season is now in my hands!

I've already listened to the commentary for The Deconstruction of Falling Stars. I picked that one first because, on the whole, that episode rubbed me the wrong way and I was interested to hear JMS's viewpoint. I will start posting more substantive thoughts regarding the fourth season later this week, but for the time being, allow me to go on record as saying:

WAHAHAHAHA! Even the extras confirm it!

Early in the commentary for Deconstruction, JMS stated that after they shot the Londo & G'Kar mini-scene, one of the extras actually asked him how long they (Londo & G'Kar) had been married. Also amusing was JMS's follow-up thought immediately thereafter in which he described G'Kar as the long suffering wife listening to her husband (i.e., Londo) prattle on and on.

G'Kar, of course, will be lodging an official protest for being cast as the wife. *eg* But yay! Acknowledgement of deliberate subtext from the Great Maker himself!

Validation is always nice, and my inner G'Kar and Londo are now bickering about who gets to be the wife *g*.

(In all seriousness, one of the things I like about the pairing is that it's a pointless question. But this hast never stopped them arguing before.)

Re: theirloveissocanon

Naturally theirloveiscanon. (And btw I'm glowing with jealousy about you having the fourth season.) And while we're at them bickering about roles, isn't it interesting that in the prank script, JMS has G'Kar coming on to Londo (with that "you may have conquered by world, but you did not conquer ME" line) rather than the reverse?

Hey, I don't even have a Region 4 release date yet, and I'm on my first viewing *g*. By the way, when should I stop watching Season Three so as to avoid the Horrible Cliffhanger?

Clearly he realised that if he was going to genderswap G'Kar, he had to avoid weakening his postion with Londo *g*. The power balance between them does move around a lot, after all.

Re: theirloveissocanon

I would stop after And the Rock Cried Out, No Hiding Place. Because I don't want to wait for months for you to see And the Rock.... *footstomp* *g*

Re: theirloveissocanon

I have to concurr with hobsonphile. If you feel you need to avoid the Big Cliffhanger (which btw involves two characters that aren't Londo, G'Kar or Vir), best stop after And the Rock Cried Out, No Hiding Place.

As for Londo and G'Kar bickering about JMS' "wife" assignation on the one hand and who comes on to whom on the other:

L (smug): As if there was ever any question. I always knew you had much in common with Timov, G'Kar.

G: Quite. Both of us for some reason which escapes me failed to kill you when we had the chance.

L: Though what the Great Maker meant with "long suffering" and "prattling on", I don't know. Even when you didn't talk to me, you hardly ever shut up in everybody else's vicinity. As for me, if I excersise my natural skill at oratory...

G: Mollari, do you ever shut up? "Long-suffering" is the only true part of the description that I will allow. Otherwise, I'd like to mention out here and now that females of all races can testify to my masculinity.

L: G'Kar, you are such a literal person. That wasn't the point. In any case, if I were you, I wouldn't rely too much on those testimonies. They might include the fact that your... attentions were, shall we say, rather short-term. Well, I suppose one can't blame you, considering you lack the natural advantages of a Centauri...

G: WHY wasn't I allowed to kill him on the show? Why?

Will do. After all, the cliffhanger at the end of Season One was still frustrating even though Londo and G'Kar's situations were far less up in the air than, say, Delenn's.

Quite. Both of us for some reason which escapes me failed to kill you when we had the chance.

You need to use this in a fanfic somewhere, you know *g*.
So now, being perverse, I have to imagine what that would look like with Londo as the wife. Or, what Londo would be like as a woman. Hm.

But, did JMS say anything to make sense of the travesty of that episode?
...

...life just TOTALLY rocks sometimes. ^_________^ *is picturing G'Kar in a frilly pink apron, singing & making dinner for Londo* XD

Have to admit I thought Deconstruction of Falling Stars was a bit of a mess.
I just 'borrowed' my bf's season four and was listening to the commentaries myself now thats quite the mental image lol
