Day 29: "My current fandom toy."  
Day 29 - Current TV show obsession

Right now it's a tie between Supernatural and Legend of the Seeker.

Supernatural I've been with for the last four seasons now, from the second season which is where I first started watching the show. Although some may know that I'm still kind of torn on where I stand about the show as of right now and my opinions about the direction it's taking. That may change when the new season starts, I don't know. And of course I immediately was hooked onto Legend of the Seeker which has been my recent newest obsession. I consider LOTS to be something that gives me what some shows haven't done lately, which is that feeling of satisfactory fulfillment with the story and the characters and a great kind of escapism. Of course, I've already gushed about the show before and probably will continue to do so in the future, but yeah. Those are my current television obsessions as of right now. Things are most likely to change though depending, since my obsessions and objectives change constantly. Especially with all the other shows I have on my queue, it's only a matter of time before another new obsession kicks in.

Runner Up: Caprica. While I do love the show so far it's taking far too long to finish the first season due to this unnecessary midseason hiatus. So I really can't say it's an obsession yet, but it's getting there.

Masterlist of days here.

Me too. I'm hoping next season is a lot better than most of the spoilers I've read. I stopped reading them a while ago because they've just left me cold.

I haven't read anything, and quite frankly I don't want to. Not just because I'm a spoilerphobe but also because I want to avoid throwing things. The finale already did that to me. I'm just going into the new season with really low expectations.

Me too. It's kind of sad because Supernatural used to be a show I looked forward too, but if season six is anything like Swan Song it'll be a chore to watch. I get bored with most shows quickly (three seasons if that is usually my limit) so I'm surprised I've stuck with Supernatural as long as I have.

Because they love to torture us, that's why. And money, because you know there's going to be a two DVD boxsets for the first season like they did with BSG.

I'm partly excited for S6 and partly dreading it because I don't know where it's going to go and how it'll be but whichever, I'll still be watching. I've been there since S1 so might see it through.

I'm worried that with the long hiatus Caprica is taking that when it gets back, I might lost interest in it. Why on earth does it need such a long hiatus anyway?

I'm going in with low expectations and preparing myself for disappointments, to be honest. After how they handled the apocalypse and the mess that was the finale, I'm incredibly psyched about there being a sixth season at all. But we'll see how it goes nonetheless.

SciFi loves extended hiatuses for some reason, I don't know why. But I know what you mean, especially since it is a new series trying to gain more audiences, this hiatus might help it gain more viewers or hurt it by losing more folk as they forgot about it. It all depends.

I have heard about the Legends of the Seeker but I don't know what on earth it is about. I have to say that it becoming one of your latest T.V. obsessions has me curious. Is it some type of adventure show? I know it takes place in the past but that's about it.

Well, it's based on the Sword of Truth books by Terry Goodkind, set in a fantasy-based world. It basically follows the epic journey of Richard, the Seeker, and his quest to save the world from evil.

You can read a brief but more detailed version here, but it really is a fantastic and wonderful series, lighthearted and fun but also having dark and intriguing themes as well. There's a wide-range of fascinating characters from this world and their origins, like wizards and witches, Mord'Siths, Confessors, sorceresses, and some fantastical creatures and beasts. I've said it before, but it's a mixture of Harry Potter and Star Wars and Lord of the Rings all wrapped into one show, and it's awesome. Plus, the female characters on the show? Kick so much ass. In fact, I will say I haven't seen strong women like this shown since Buffy and Xena, and that's saying something right there. Every single character is amazing and wonderful in their own right, and it's probably one of the few shows I have that I can watch without feeling frustrated or unfulfilled with the direction of the story (unless one is a fan of the books because it does take a detour in places I've heard, but I think it does well on its own as a show and it doesn't lose track on what the story is mainly about).

And yeah, it's great. And aesthetically it's just absolutely gorgeous. From the costumes to the settings, since it's filmed in New Zealand. And the action sequences just blow your mind.

I literally can gush about LOTS all day, lol. ;)
