Can you tell i'm feeling the incessant need to babble :D


A) List Five of your TV Fandom Favourites

Stargate: Atlantis, Firefly, Star Trek: DS9, Angel and The X-Files.

1. Which makes you cry the most? None of them are particularly sad. Although both Angel and DS9 have made me cry.
In Angel it was in The Girl in Question after Illyria impersonated Fred for her parents and then keeps doing it for Wes until he can't take it anymore- "Stop it! Change back. Be blue. Be anything. Don't be her. Don't ever be her." That just breaks me.
In DS9 it was Jadzia's death when she says "our baby would have been so beautiful"! And then Sisko's reaction to her death (well everyones, but mainly siskos). :(
2. Which makes you laugh the most? Either of the Joss Whedon shows, his dialogue is soooo funny. And i won't start quoting now cos i'll be here til next week. All funny. Firefly maybe more so, i think in Angel they tried to be a little more serious, not by much though.
3. Which makes you gasp outloud/talk to your TV the most? X-Files, i think it was designed to do that though.
4. Which do you do the most art for? Have no artistic skill whatsoever. If i did, it would probably be SG:A.
5. Which will/do you miss the most? Hard question. I miss all the shows that have ended and i'm sure i'll miss Atlantis too when the time comes (although hopefully not for a long, long, long time) but i think it has to be Firefly. Because it was cut so short, there's so much we didn't see therefore so much to miss. YAY for Serenity!!! :D

B) For each of your favorites, list the following:
1. Favorite Episode
2. Favorite Character
3. Favorite Premiere
4. Favorite Finale
5. Why is it one of your favorites?

SG:A
1. Favorite Episode: I'm tempted just to say anything with Radek in it :D Although right now i think it has to be Duet. Also love Letters from Pegasus, The Brotherhood and Hide and Seek (wikiberry don't even say it).
2. Favorite Character: Radek Zelenka (although we don't get to see enough of him so as a back-up - Rodney Mckay - whom i really do love to bits.)
3. Favorite Premiere: Siege III, Rising was great but Siege was better.
4. Favorite Finale: tough one this: Siege
5. Why is it one of your favorites? It's just such a great show. Stargate: the movie was brilliant, SG:1 equally wonderful (at least in it's first few seasons) and Atlantis has kept it up. Great storylines. Great characters. Great interpersonal relationships. what else does a show need?

Firefly
1. Favorite Episode: "Jaynestown", no wait "Ariel", no no no "Objects in Space", no actually "Out of Gas", wait there's also "War Stories" and "The Message". You get the point.
2. Favorite Character: Simon Tam, i always liked him but the moment i realised he was "the one" was in Trash when he's treating Jayne and does his great speech which i was so not gonna quote but i'm weak: "You're in a dangerous line of work, Jayne. Odds are, you'll be under my knife again. Often. So I want you to understand one thing very clearly. No matter what you do, or say, or plot... no matter how you come down on us I will never ever harm you. You're on this table you're safe. I'm your medic, and however little we may like or trust each other, we're on the same crew. Got the same
troubles, same enemies and more than enough of both. Now we could circle each other and growl, both sleep with one eye open but that thought wearies me. I don't care what you've done. I don't know what you're planning on doing, but I'm trusting you. I think you should do the same, cause I don't see this working any other way." OMG, he's an honest to god hero! :D
3. Favorite Premiere: *is sad* but then Serenity was so cool, i'd probably have picked it anyway.
4. Favorite Finale: you know, maybe this was a bad show to discuss ;)
5. Why is it one of your favorites? This is such an original concept, that it just had me hooked from the first time i watched it and in true Joss Whedon stlye it's incredibly well written. Also all the characters are so well thought out, they all have so much personality. Even the 'bad guys' aren't 2D. *loves this show*

DS9
1. Favorite Episode: One of "Distant Voices", "Hippocratic Oath", "Our Man Bashir", "The Quickening", "Dr. Bashir, I Presume", "Statistical Probabilities", "Take me Out to the Holosuite" or "Extreme Measure". Okay that list had 19 eps, at least i narrowed it down. ;)
2. Favorite Character: Julian Bashir (see the eps above). Plus the first DS9 ep i ever watched was OMB, it's not like i could not be hooked on him after that :D
3. Favorite Premiere: A Time to Stand, actually looking back it hasn't had the best premieres ever, but i did like the whole Dominion war arch so this works.
4. Favorite Finale: What You Leave Behind, no question. Not only is it my fave DS9 finale, i think it might be my favourite ending to a show ever. It had everything. Action. Big fight scene. Bonding time with the characters. A chance to look back over the 7 years yet also everyone moving forward with their lives. A really pretty song. And the best closing line ever (well maybe with the except of ENT) "The more things change, the more they stay the same." :D
5. Why is it one of your favorites? Well Star Trek obviously had to be in my favourite list, but i decided only to pick one otherwise Trek could easily use up 3/4 of the slots, at the very least Voyager would be here too - alas. The reason i love Trek, nothing original, probably the same reason everyone does i'm just "someone without much hope - dreaming of a better future". The reason it was Ds9 that made the cut, the intellectual answer would have to be "it kept me entertained the whole way through, beginning to end" but i think the honest reason is: Julian! :D

Angel
1. Favorite Episode: Again there are lots and the answer would probably change depending on my mood but right now "Lineage". Wesley's relationship with his father is hinted at throughout the entire series so it's nice that we finally get to meet him - sorta. I starts with a great action scene for Wes, showing us how far he's come, it's got some great comedy moments with Spike and the headboy stuff and the a hugely shippy ending (sorry but i like Fred/Wes)
Fred: Part of you knew. Even if you can't admit it to yourself, part of you knew it wasn't him.
Wesley: No. I was sure it was him. You were there. I killed my father.
Fred: He was threatening your friends.
Wesley: He was threatening you. He pointed a gun at you, Fred. So I shot him.
AWWWWWWWWW
2. Favorite Character: Wesley (d'uh). Such a great character too. From cowardly, by-the-book, annoying and pretty stupid watcher in Buffy to semi-cowardly though pretending not to be, funny and lonely rogue demon hunter in his first appearance in Angel and all the development since leading him to be the wonderful guy he was. I miss Wesley.
3. Favorite Premiere: Toss up between "City of", and "Judgement". City of - i just have a thing for pilots and this was a such a good introduction to both the show and the characters. Judgement - i liked seeing the gang work and fit together like a family. Buffy had this too, but i think it came much quicker in Angel. Plus we got to see Lorne and Karitos and Angel singing karoke. :D
4. Favorite Finale: "Through the Looking Glass" and "There's No Place Like Plrtz Glrb". i just loved this whole story - for obvious reasons :D. Lorne's home dimension. The singing. Cordy as a slave/princess. the singing. Groo. Gunn's decision to come or stay. the singing. Lorne's crazy family. Fred. the humour. Lorne's sweet little speech at the end (see how i'm not quoting, look how much i've grown :D). Did i mention the singing? :D
5. Why is it one of your favorites? This spot was a choice between Buffy and Angel. And as much as i love Buffy (the show), Buffy (the character) kinda annoys me. Plus Buffy had good seasons and bad seasons. Angel - i liked all off. And of course in typical Joss Whedon style it's a very well written show. I really do spent afternoons just reading quotes and either laughing hysterically or smiling at the memory :D

The X-Files
1. Favorite Episode: Pusher, Kitsunegari, Bad Blood, Triangle and Dreamland. (see this was less hard, which ep titles can i still remember after all this time - those must have been the good ones :D)
2. Favorite Character: I hate to be cliched - but it has to be Mulder. I loved him through all of my teenage years.
3. Favorite Premiere: Again, i'm gonna go with The Pilot.
4. Favorite Finale: Gethsemane - Scully's dying and Mulder's dead. That was a hell of a summer. The words "Agent Mulder died late last night from an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head" floated around in my head all the way til Redux. Not so much cos i believed it but cos it was so sad to even think it.
5. Why is it one of your favorites? It was a very good show for about 6/7 series and then it went rapidly down hill. Despite that the reason it'll always be close to my heart is cos it was my introduction into the world of sci-fi and my first fandom. Without the x-files, i may never have discovered all the other wonderful shows mentioned. Plus when it first started i was still a kid (by which i mean like 13 :D) and a lot of those episodes were actually scary. it was great. :D And it's another one of these shows with great secondary characters. Skinner, the cigarette smoking man, Krychek, Deep Throat, Jeffrey Spender, the whole Scully family and of course the Lone Gunmen.

well that was a lot of babble, hope it made some sense. :D



Ooooh BTW: I love this whole new 100 icons space :D Having lots of fun finding cool new icons. Only problem is how i decide to use one. Especially in a multi-fandom post like this :(
