Worlds colliding

I've been watching Boston Legal. Y'know, 'cause it's cracky and delightful? And that got me to remembering how much I liked Murphy Brown, back when it was in syndication and I watched it with Mum. So I went to YouTube and searched Murphy Brown.

And it gave me this.



There's two parts of this. My worlds, they are colliding. (Also it's deeply weird that Avery Brown was played by Haley Joel Osment.)

Shirley Schmidt has torrid affair with a young John Sheppard while he's in university, Y/N? The awesomeness, it cannot be measured. Also all his come-ons to Murphy, I can imagine in a John/Rodney fic, which makes this episode possibly one hundred times more fun.

ETA: OH MY GOD LILY TOMLIN WAS ON MURPHY BROWN, HOW DID I NOT REMEMBER THIS?

ETA2: POST-GRADUATE. GEORGETOWN. PHYSICS. I think I need a lie-down.

ETA3: And then he gets drafted into the Israeli army and goes off to BE A PILOT. GUYS.

Haven't seen those clips in ages! Geez, he's so cute I can barely stand it! Is it me, or does Joe brighten up every show he appears on?

It's not you. It's just the way things are. :)

He gets drafted into the Israeli army? For real?

Yup. He's an Israeli citizen. So he has to leave Murphy for flight school. (And that's when I had to have a lie-down.)

There's already a fusion fic, with John Sheppard/Murphy Brown, but damned if I can find it right now.

I know. It's SO CONFUSING.

Holy. Crap.

This is brilliant. This is even more brilliant than Under The Mistletoe starring Daniel Jackson and Laura Cadman.

POSTGRAD PHYSICS PILOT-- Joe Flanigan has always been playing John Sheppard, hasn't he? SGA just made it official.

Not to mention John Sheppard's thing for older women. ^.^

Hee! And for snark. I mean, really, given this evidence it is CLEAR that the man has been trying to ask Rodney on a date for YEARS.

I swear to god, Flanigan has made some unholy deals with dark forces, because nobody should be allowed to stay so good looking for so long. His current beardface is clearly to distract us from noticing his eternal youth!

*solemn nod* It is obviously a ploy.

And seriously, this is how John flirts. Or rather, I suspect, used to, before he was so... well, screwed up. This kamikaze, every-massive-dork-for-himself strategy. When he actually tries to flirt, it mostly ends up kind of embarrassing unless he's got just the right smart-assed audience. ;)

By which I also mean: hah, and OF COURSE this also explains the Elizabeth/Sheppard action in the show. POWERFUL WOMEN, John. They will TEACH YOU THINGS. SEXY THINGS.

this took a while, but...
ok, found it! My google-fu failed me, so I had to go through all of my bookmarks and find it--and I almost thought it was totally lost b/c the author's website is down, but yay! she's still got it up on her LJ, so here's the story that is very similar storyline:
Ages & Ages Hence by Corinna: http://corinna-5.livejournal.com/140706.html
And here's an additional part: http://corinna-5.livejournal.com/170983.html?thread=861927#t861927

thanks for pointing to the episode, I hadn't seen it, or realized that the show was almost the same thing as the story--and I enjoyed watching Murphy Brown again, as well as reacquainting myself with the fic.

While I was drooling buckets over Joe, I just wanted to take time to thank you for posting this video of him in his young cuteness :)
