in Film & Television
Okay, right. I'm supposed to be writing an article. Or is this a column? I dunno. Whatever. I'm writing words for you, Internet, read them and love them and validate my as of yet seemingly poor decision to double major in English and Mass Communications.
Anyway, I guess we should get to know each other: Hi. I'm Mk. [caption id="attachment_391" align="alignright" width="225" caption="MK"]

One particularly insomnia-plagued night, while well-into a Stargate SG-1 marathon, I was pondering the idea of a gender-swapped cast, and immediately and effortlessly found ladies to be my Daniel/Danielle Jackson and Teal'c/um.. lady Teal'c? The hard part was finding my Boy-Sam Carter and Jack(ie) O'Niell.
I am not one to let go of something difficult,
even if it's trivial
especially trivial shit like this, so I pretty much thought of nothing else for a good 48 hours, before finally striking gold when I thought of a male Sam and a female Jack just about at the same time. (See! Insomnia and obsessive fangirling do pay off once in a while!)
So here's what happened:
