Sometimes I wonder what Coran and Allura would think when 10K years ago they had a culture of incredible technology and progress and innovation with a unique blend of magic and machine that worked in harmony, whereas 10K years ago humans were literally in the middle of the stone age.
It just hit me that I also absolutely need a character I connect to on some deep, personal level (not necessarily that I identify with them, just I look at them/read about them and go ‘that one’s mine’) to be truly invested in something…
Stargate - it was Daniel (and that’s why I couldn’t enjoy SGA or SGU and the only episodes of those spinoffs I enjoyed were the ones he was in. Also, SG-1 Season 6)
Once - it’s Killian (thus, no interest in the show until after he came onto it)
THG - Peeta, obviously. I wasn’t hooked until he pulled me in with his ‘you here to finish me off, sweetheart?’
LOTR - Pippin (duh!), Faramir, and Aragorn.
Skins was Effy, Weeds was Silas. Farscape was John. Firefly was River and Simon. Andromeda was Rommie (which is why so much of Season 5 bothered me since…you know… Lexa was pregnant and couldn’t play Rommie). Star Was has always been Anakin (even if he is a trash prince).
Hell, even My Little Pony. If the first episode I watched hadn’t been the one it was where Pinkie Pie did what she did (”FOREVER!”), I might not have gotten into it like I did. Pinkie Pie has always been my connection to that show.
I need someone to pull me in. Every time. If I can’t connect, committing is harder.
Stranger Things Note: There are a few new awesome shows in 2016, so it is a bit hard to pick 4, so there are obviously some new shows in 2016 that aren’t listed. For example: Luke Cage, shadowhunters, etc. There are a few.
Top 10 Best Shows you Watched in 2016:
Doctor Who (EVEN IF THERE WAS ONLY 1 EPISODE!!!!!!!! WHYYYYY!)
Sense8 (Even if again there was only 1 ep, but it was amazing)
Brooklyn Nine Nine (love this show)
Person of Interest (so sad it is finished)
Star Treks (all, but TAS) TNG, Voyager and TOS were rewatches Again, Note: Picking a top anything is hard.
Top 4 Shows that Disappointed you in 2016
The 100 (The whole killing Lexa thing mostly)
The Walking Dead (ever since the s7 premiere ep, just haven’t felt the same about the show anymore, still watching, but no longer a fav)
Doctor Who FOR ONLY HAVING 1 EP, it was hell not having series 10 in 2016, but at least we will have a series in 2017, loved the ep tho.
Arrow (as it isn’t a good as it used to be, and I can’t think of a 4th show tbh, so going with Arrow)
i identify with C-3PO so hard bcuz like….he’s just along for the ride?? has no clue what he’s doing? no special powers…just a bunch of crazy friends and shit just happens and he’s like “O MY SWEET BANTHA” and he somehow, by the sheen of his metal coating, manages to keep himself together while also managing to bitch every single minute he’s on screen..he’s just so real
I got the honor to participate in @jojofanzine (which is an awesome project btw thanks for having me!) a while back so I drew as many best girls as possible from Jojo which is hard bc all the girls are best girls.
