Fandom meme

December 31st, 2011 (03:10 pm)

I’ve seen this around and snagged it from leoraine. I’m apparently in a reflective kind of mood.

Which TV shows did you let go of in 2011?

Hm. I’m not even sure. I technically let go of Supernatural in 2010 but it still seems to resonate as my left behind show. I also gave up on Royal Pains.

Which TV shows did you mean to get into but didn't in 2011? Why?

Suits. I watched two eps and liked it and I had a few friends get really into it but I just couldn’t bring myself to commit.

Which TV shows do you intend to check out in 2012?

Castle. Because moogsthewriter gave me S1 :)

Which TV show impressed you least in 2011?

The Mentalist and White Collar.

Which TV show do you think you might let go of in 2012 unless things significantly improve?

I’m really borderline on The Mentalist as it is. I like it but never feel excited about it and my time is limited. And LOL, Terranova, which I only really watch because my husband has decided it’s worth watching even when it’s not.

Which TV show impressed you the most in 2011? Why?

I fell hard for CHAOS but it died a sad and quick death. I’m a fan of Once Upon a Time and this season’s Psych has made me really happy. Strangely I also got into Grey’s Anatomy.

Which TV shows do you think you'll never let go of no matter how crappy they get? Why?

Hm. Psych? Though I don’t think I’ll ever think that’ll get bad. And honestly, I think I could give anything up because I never thought I’d let go of Supernatural and I haven’t watched since S5.

Your main fandom of the year?

CHAOS. And really anything related to James Murray.

Your favorite film you watched this year?

This assumes I’ve seen movies. It’s a little fuzzy on what I’ve actually seen but I did really like Super 8. I liked Transformers 3 a decent amount too but I wouldn’t call it a favorite. I have two young children. I don’t get out a lot.

Your favorite tv show of the year?

It has to be CHAOS. I just – I don’t know. I loved that show. I kept telling myself not to fall in love with a show that was doomed but I couldn’t stop myself.

Your best new fandom discovery of the year?

Probably CHAOS and then by extension Primeval. Even though I haven’t watched recent seasons of Primeval, I have found the fandom there to be extremely entertaining (even if I am still too scared to really join in).

Your biggest fandom disappointment of the year?

Hawaii Five-0, I think. I mean, I still like the show and the fandom but with the introduction of the new girl, things just got weird. Both in the show and in fandom. The dynamic in the show is finally rebounding but it's still not quite what it was. It got a bit divisive regarding her in fandom and ever since the insanity of SPN S4 and S5, I'm really wary of any fandom conflict.

Your biggest squee moment of the year?

Hmm. Probably when I managed to find a few people who shared my wayward interest for CHAOS. The joy I’ve had corresponding and collaborating with people (a la moogsthewriter, sophie_deangirl, blackdog_lz and eviinsanemonkey) has been really, really awesome.

I also squeed quite hard at the end of Psych’s fall season when we found out why Shawn was so obsessed with his DS.

The most missed of your old fandoms?

I miss doing more in H50 and do want to get back into it more again. I have some bunnies that I really want to get back to, including two unfinished cowritten would-be Big Bangs with moogsthewriter. Part of me will also always miss moments of SPN but never enough to really go back.

Your biggest fan anticipations for the coming year?

This assumes I can think ahead. I’d have to say Psych. Because I love Psych and want to see what happens between Shawn and Juliet. And I really am hoping that James Murray gets some kind of show either in the US or UK to keep me thoroughly obsessed.

H50 - Team

I get three mentions! \o/

None of this is super new to me -- we talk about these things all the time, after all. Still, I might take a crack at doing this myself. Maybe. At some point. :)

We really need to finish those big bangs. It must be done.

You would get more if I had more time to ramble. Sometimes I think you are my brain. Not just in it or sharing it. But ARE it.

I'm also not sure that makes sense.

And we do. We really do. My muse is out of control!!!!

The Hawaii 5-0 fandom has disappointed me too, I don't understand why some people need to bash a character even before we really get to know her. We're supposed to be adults, but most just acted really childish. But I do hope that the episodes will get better in the new year :)
And I'm definitely looking forward to reading more fic.

I think fandom is often a great and amazing thing. But sometimes we can all act like teenagers and take it all way too seriously. (Myself included)

I've learned from past mistakes and have tried to keep myself away from conflict and wank. It's all for fun, so I don't need the stress. And yes, I hope the season continues to improve. They were on an uptick before hiatus so I'm optimistic. Plus, I just got S1 DVDs for Christmas, which is good since I have a feeling that my favorite episodes will always be in early S1.

And I hope I can continue to find time to write! I hope you can, too. I need someone else to keep Chaos alive!!
