It is perfectly okay to give me more than one show, just so you know. This can also be extended to things not strictly television specific (webseries or film series, for example).

What about Stitchers?

STITCHERS

My all-time ultimate fave character: Camille, hands down. Though Kirsten comes close second.
A character I didn't used to like but now do: Linus. He seemed kinda dudebro-y, or at least oblivious to his lack of social skills which came off as such, but I think his character has grown somewhat over the last two seasons.
A character I used to like but now don't: None. :)
A character I'm indifferent about: Linus perhaps? There are times when I like him and other times when I'm indifferent, it really depends on how he's acting.
A character who deserved better: Marta. We only got a brief introduction to her character, and that was after she had awakened from her comatose state, and I feel like there was a lot of unanswered questions regarding her character. She also deserved a better fate than what she was given. (I feel bad for the actress too, this is the second character I've seen her play that gets that short end of the stick.)
A ship I've never been able to get into: Camille/Linus. There are times when I think they're cute, but other times when I just want Camille to be with someone better. It goes back and forth, to be honest. Also Cameron/Nina, and not just because I want Cameron/Kirsten to happen either. Cameron/Nina was obviously a setup to be the obstacle between Cameron and Kirsten, and while I initially liked that they didn't go into that weird love triangle territory and handled the situation like adults, in hindsight it's still entering that territory just from another angle, particularly when Nina basically was like, "it's either Kirsten or me" (when they had only been dating for, like, a few weeks at least). I don't know.
A ship I've never been able to get over: Cameron/Kirsten. It's endgame, I know it is, but the slow burn is killing me.
A cute, low-key ship: Camille/Fisher. ♥
An unpopular ship but I still enjoyed it: Kirsten/Camille.
A ship that was totally wrong and never should have happened: Kirsten/Liam, but it's canon that it was a ruse to begin with and they are all aware that it should never have happened. So I think everyone is in agreement about that.
My favourite storyline/moment: Fisher teaching Camille how to fight. It was brief, but I liked seeing them bond and showing that Camille is using those skills to good use later on. I also love whenever Camille and Kirsten have moments of bonding, as well.
A storyline that never should have been written: Camille spying on Liam by acting as though she wanted to go out with him. I can understand the initial prospect of such a storyline, but it got frustrating when she couldn't tell anyone and the horrible assumptions from others about her character when it was unneeded. And after all of that, nothing else came from it in terms of Camille going back out in the field, actually putting her training to good use. Even Allison Scagliotti mentioned that she wants better for Camille on the show, so I hope they make sure to do that in the upcoming third season.
My first thoughts on the show: I had no idea what the show was about, it might be bad and might not last a full season, but I was only going to be watching because of Allison Scagliotti.
My thoughts now: MY BEAUTIFUL AND RIDICULOUSLY ADDICTIVE LITTLE SHOW THANK GOD IT WAS RENEWED FOR A THIRD SEASON I WAS SO WORRIED. ♥

I actually don't remember if I've asked you this before, but Harry Potter and maybe Carmilla the webseries.
Renée: Draco Malfoy. Conflicted.rogueslayer452 on February 28th, 2017 01:35 pm (UTC)
HARRY POTTER

My all-time ultimate fave character: Draco Malfoy. ♥
A character I didn't used to like but now do: Ironically enough, Draco Malfoy. I didn't think much of his character at first but of course, a combination of the fandom and the development seen in Half Blood Prince it led a whole new appreciation of the character, so much that he rose to become my favorite character of the series. I just love that little shit so much.
A character I used to like but now don't: I don't really know? Perhaps Dumbledore, even though I didn't have strong feelings for him initially I definitely don't like him now, especially when you realize the shit he put Harry through.
A character I'm indifferent about: Most of the Weasley's.
A character who deserved better: Sirius Black (I was in denial for such a long time after his death), Remus Lupin (same, only more disappointment in the lack of recognition of his character in the last book), and the Malfoys for not getting the character development they deserved, particularly after the events from the last two books.
A ship I've never been able to get into: Most of the canon pairings (Harry/Ginny, Ron/Hermione), and when it comes to fandom, oh boy, there's quite a list when it comes to the wide variety of ships that I just couldn't get into or even understand.
A ship I've never been able to get over: Harry/Draco, a.k.a. my ultimate OTP. The fact that there's still an outpouring of fanfic for them and that I'm still reading it after all these years says something. ♥ ♥ ♥
A cute, low-key ship: Hermione/Krum. I thought they were adorable together.
An unpopular ship but I still enjoyed it: I don't think they're necessarily unpopular, but I always loved Harry/Hermione and, later, Harry/Luna.
A ship that was totally wrong and never should have happened: Ron/Hermione and Harry/Ginny.
My favourite storyline/moment: This is predictably biased, but I will have to say Draco's entire arc in Half-Blood Prince. More so the film than the book, because we got a chance to see what was happening to him. It was really beautifully done to demonstrate such development of his character from the nasty little shit he had been previously. It's something I wish JKR had expanded on in the final book, because all that potential was there. Also, Prisoner of Azkaban, being my favorite book, I liked that the plot wasn't centered around Voldemort as the rest of the series was.
A storyline that never should have been written: The entirety of the epilogue. Ugh.
My first thoughts on the show the series: I got into the series when the first movie came out (on VHS!) and was curious enough to pick up the books. So my first thoughts were probably along the lines of thinking it was interesting, also magic and wizards/witches? Count me in!
My thoughts now: THIS IS SUCH A TRAGICALLY BEAUTIFUL (but also terribly flawed) STORY THAT HAS TORN MY HEART OUT AND RIPPED IT TO SHREDS AND I HAVE SO MANY THOUGHTS AND FEELINGS AND I NEED TO ANALYZE THIS ENTIRE WORLD AND GIVE CONSTRUCTIVE CRITICISMS AND JUST, UGH, FICTIONAL WORLDS AMIRITE?

Orphan Black or Supergirl, whichever your choice (I think you watched either of them?)
Renée: Sarah Manning. One of a kind.rogueslayer452 on February 28th, 2017 08:57 pm (UTC)
ORPHAN BLACK

My all-time ultimate fave character: Sarah Manning. It's tough to choose from because I love all the clones, but Sarah was the first character we were introduced to, she was the catalyst that brought us into the story and so I have a strong attachment to her personally.
A character I didn't used to like but now do: Paul. I went back and forth on Paul a lot, whether he was trustworthy or worth Sarah's time, but in the end I he was a good guy after all. He just made some bad choices and got mixed up in the wrong things, but he truly cared about Sarah, loved her even, and his sacrifice was something I will forever be sad about. I would also like to say Donnie, because in the beginning I wasn't all that convinced that he and Alison should've been together, but over the course of the show they've proven to be the best accidental murder power couple and I just love? Donnie proved himself loyal to Alison and the rest of the clones.
A character I used to like but now don't: N/A
A character I'm indifferent about: Delphine.
A character who deserved better: Beth Childs. Poor Beth, she tried so hard but got in too deep and things were just spiraling out of control and beyond anything she was prepared to deal with. Even though her suicide launched the series from the opening scene in the series premiere, it's still sad and I kinda wished that Beth had survived somehow to witness everything that Sarah and their sisters have accomplished. And special mention to all the other clones that we didn't meet or didn't have time to get to know but perished, whether from the sickness or by someone else. I also think Evie Cho deserved better than what she was handed. Yeah, she was an antagonist, but there was still a lot about Evie that we didn't really get to learn about, and I felt her time on the show was very short.
A ship I've never been able to get into: Cosima/Delphine. There is just something about their relationship I could never get behind, which was ultimately because Delphine lied to Cosima from the start. Yeah, she might have grown to develop feelings for her and realized that what she was assigned to do was wrong, but no matter how complicated I'm not down for something like that. Never mind that Delphine continually disregarded Cosima's feelings and autonomy. I don't know, it just reminded me of the reasons why I didn't like Bo/Lauren from Lost Girl, just the total lack of respect for personal autonomy and decisions of an individual all because of ~science. While I understand the importance of Cosima/Delphine as a canon f/f couple, and I know that the complicatedness of their relationship is what people like, it's just not something I can get into, personally speaking.
A ship I've never been able to get over: Sarah/Paul, they were both fucked up people with trust issues and did this dance around each other a lot, but in the end Paul truly did love Sarah and Sarah cared a lot about him, which makes his end truly tragic.
A cute, low-key ship: Helena/Jesse. After everything Helena has been through in her life, she deserves some happiness. They are oddly incredibly cute together and I do hope to see more of Jesse in the last season, at least.
An unpopular ship but I still enjoyed it: Cosima/Shay. I really liked them together and wished that she stayed a little longer.
A ship that was totally wrong and never should have happened: Idk.
My favourite storyline/moment: Oh gosh, so many! I can't possibly choose.
A storyline that never should have been written: None that I can think of. While there were certain ones I favored over others, all storylines presented on the show have importance to the overall plot of the story.
My first thoughts on the show: It was a genre and story right up my alley, and I was curious to see what everyone was talking about.
My thoughts now: TATIANA MASLANY DESERVES ALL THE AWARDS FOR EVERY SINGLE CLONE SHE HAS PORTRAYED! Seriously, my thoughts on this show is a combination of "wow this is some excellent writing/acting/storytelling" and "WHERE ARE ALL THE AWARDS AND WHY IS NOBODY TALKING ABOUT THIS MORE".

Dark Matter and/or Sense8!
Renée: Dark Matter. Two.rogueslayer452 on March 1st, 2017 12:29 pm (UTC)
DARK MATTER

My all-time ultimate fave character: Two and Five.
A character I didn't used to like but now do: It's more about a character I didn't expect to like initially but they grew on me, which would be Three. He definitely started out as a very Jayne Cobb-esque kind of character, one that you're wondering what side he's really on and if he might sell the rest of them out if he could. But, just like with Jayne, he had his fair share of development and I really ended up liking him a lot.
A character I used to like but now don't: None.
A character I'm indifferent about: One.
A character who deserved better: The woman that Three was connected with, who he tried to save from a disease before he lost his memory. She was someone he truly cared about, and even though keeping her inside the stasis pod was stalling her illnessness and preventing her from dying it wouldn't have been enough. It just sad and tragic all around, especially since he honestly didn't remember anything but felt like he needed to, for her sake.
A ship I've never been able to get into: One/Two, mostly because it was kinda predictable, but also they don't share that same level of chemistry.
A ship I've never been able to get over: N/A
A cute, low-key ship: N/A
An unpopular ship but I still enjoyed it: N/A
A ship that was totally wrong and never should have happened: Again, One/Two.
My favourite storyline/moment: Two discovering the truth of her identity, at least what she was. That was a reveal I didn't see coming, but also it was something I was highly anticipating since throughout the first season they were hinting that Two was different, we just didn't know in what way. That was really well done and handled incredibly well.
A storyline that never should have been written: None.
My first thoughts on the show: It's another science fiction series, and I desperately needed to fill in that scifi void in my heart and soul. Plus diverse cast, sold immediately.
My thoughts now: Dark Matter is a brilliant show that combines not just everything I love about science fiction but also all the amazing tropes I love so much. It's a found family in space where they are discovering about themselves and learning to trust one another, and basically it is just tropey fun in a good, exciting way. I love it to bits and everyone needs to be watching it.

ANGEL: THE SERIES

My all-time ultimate fave character: Cordelia Chase (and by extension Faith, because she had her major character development on that show).
A character I didn't used to like but now do: I can't really think of someone at the moment.
A character I used to like but now don't:
A character I'm indifferent about: Wesley. He had an interesting character arc and development himself, though I didn't have strong feelings about him either way, if that makes any kind of sense.
A character who deserved better: Fred. I mean, I really liked what Amy Acker did with Illyria, but Fred deserved so much better. I mean jeez, that episode was so emotionally brutal, much more brutal than "The Body" from BTVS. Fred's last words being "why can't I stay?" just destroy me every single time. Also Cordelia, though there is lots to be said about her treatment on the show so I won't get into that, but damn. I wanted more for Cordelia's character and I feel like it wasn't justified enough with her final episode.
A ship I've never been able to get into: Cordelia/Connor, though let's be honest that was intentionally supposed to be squirky as fuck. Also I wasn't that into Fred/Wesley.
A ship I've never been able to get over: The "what could have been" with Cordelia/Doyle.
A cute, low-key ship: Fred/Gunn.
An unpopular ship but I still enjoyed it: Faith/Angel. I just really enjoyed their dynamic a whole lot.
A ship that was totally wrong and never should have happened: Cordelia/Connor.
My favourite storyline/moment: Everything revolving around Faith's entire character arc. She had some amazing growth and, not to be biased, but her episodes were perhaps my absolute favorites for that very reason.
A storyline that never should have been written: I wasn't fond of the fourth season, I don't think I remember most of it to be honest, so there's that. I will say I wished they hadn't brought in Spike into the fifth and final season, since it kind of makes his sacrifice in the series finale of BTVS kind of pointless. Did it make for some hilarious bantering between him and Angel? Yeah, but aside from that he just wasn't needed that much.
My first thoughts on the show: I mean, I obviously was going to watch it because it was a spin-off from BTVS. I was curious to see where it was going to go, since it had a different feel and tone, and seeing that Cordelia was part of the show made me more intrigued.
My thoughts now: It wasn't perfect, but I enjoyed myself. The last two seasons weren't the best, but regardless it ended on a strong note. I really need a rewatch soon.

Renée: Firefly. Inara Serra.rogueslayer452 on March 1st, 2017 09:16 am (UTC)
FIREFLY

My all-time ultimate fave character: Inara Serra and River Tam.
A character I didn't used to like but now do: Well, when I first watched the show I remember not being sure what to make of Jayne, since I thought he would've eventually turned out to be a bad guy. But nope, I ended up becoming incredibly fond of Jayne Cobb.
A character I used to like but now don't: None. They're all perfection. :)
A character I'm indifferent about: N/A
A character who deserved better: If we're talking about the series, Nandi. I just felt so bad for her. She tried her hardest to protect her girls and, while in the end succeeded, it came at a terrible cost of her life. :( And if we're talking about Serenity, definitely Book and Wash. It still hurts thinking about them, to be honest.
A ship I've never been able to get into: River/Jayne or Jayne/Kaylee. Just not my cup of tea.
A ship I've never been able to get over: Mal/Inara. ALL THE UST! JUST GET TOGETHER YOU DUMB-DUMBS!
A cute, low-key ship: Inara/Kaylee. ♥
An unpopular ship but I still enjoyed it: Simon/River.
A ship that was totally wrong and never should have happened: N/A
My favourite storyline/moment: Because the show was so short I could literally say everything because I loved it all. There is nothing I dislike about Firefly, it was all wonderful and beautiful, each episode had something good to offer and there were so many memorable moments that I cherish dearly. ♥
A storyline that never should have been written: N/A
My first thoughts on the show: A Joss Whedon show? Set in the future? Space cowboys? A psychic teenage girl? Why hadn't I seen or heard of this before? (I first watched it when the DVDs first came out, and I'm still ashamed that I hadn't heard about it until then.) Must watch immediately!
My thoughts now: LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE! ♥

Renée: Pretty Little Liars. Spencer Hastings.rogueslayer452 on March 1st, 2017 02:37 am (UTC)
Part 1
PRETTY LITTLE LIARS

My all-time ultimate fave character: It's gonna be a tie between Spencer Hastings, Alison DiLaurentis, and Mona Vanderwaal.
A character I didn't used to like but now do:
A character I used to like but now don't:
A character I'm indifferent about:
A character who deserved better: Charlotte DiLaurentis. I will never forgive the show for introducing their first (and only) transgender character only to kill her off in the very next episode. It's true that she had been part of the show for a while, but we only knew her as Cece Drake, and with the reveal of who she really was the entire time we could have gotten more of her story, there was just so much potential and they basically killed her off for ~drama reasons. It is really disgusting that they did it to the only transgender character. Ugh. I'll also never forgive what they did to Maya.
A ship I've never been able to get into: Aria/Ezra and Emily/Paige. I never was a fan of Aria/Ezra just the way the entire relationship was framed, because it is inappropriate but they tried to paint it as ~romantic and ~mature, but it was boring and got more annoying and they brought the worst out in each other. And Emily/Paige, I was never a fan to begin with. I hated how Paige treated Emily, going from being nasty towards her with no apology (no matter how much internalized homophobia it was, there was no need for that) to placing Emily on this impossible pedestal to giving Emily an ultimatum regarding Alison and then going behind Emily's back anyway. Ugh.
A ship I've never been able to get over: Hanna/Caleb. They're so cute together and I love that they've both overcome so much.
A cute, low-key ship: Mona/Mike.
An unpopular ship but I still enjoyed it: Spencer/Jason. I know, I know, but I can't help it, they just have this chemistry that is undeniable and I have no shame.
A ship that was totally wrong and never should have happened: Emily and Sara Harvey, like what? That made so sense whatsoever especially when they just met and they tried to make it seem like Emily was super attracted and into her only within a few days time? That was the dumbest thing ever (making the whole reveal that, oh, she's really not a nice person the entire time not really that ~dramatic because yeah, we all kinda predicted it immediately the moment the character entered the scene). And of course putting Spencer and Caleb together is a HUGE DO NOT WANT. I don't know what they were thinking with the five year jump, but that was atrocious and out of character for both of them. Especially since, while I understand that Toby and Spencer were growing apart before that, Hanna and Caleb were perfectly happy together so breaking them apart made no sense. Ugh. I hated them for doing that and it's one of the reasons why I ended up quitting the show.

Veronica Mars? (My first instinct was FBAWTFT, but I dunno that we have enough to go on for most of those questions)
Renée: Veronica. Marshmallow.rogueslayer452 on February 28th, 2017 11:36 pm (UTC)
(Yeah, probably not, of course my entire answers would've been a mantra of PERCIVAL GRAVES, PERCIVAL GRAVES, AND PERCIVAL GRAVES! lol)

VERONICA MARS

My all-time ultimate fave character: Veronica Mars
A character I didn't used to like but now do: I don't know, I don't think there were any? None that I can recall at the moment.
A character I used to like but now don't: I'll admit to finding Logan interesting in the beginning (the first season), but the writing after that was atrocious for him that I just ended up hating him entirely. And I absolutely hate what they did to Cassidy.
A character I'm indifferent about: Eh, I'm not sure.
A character who deserved better: Meg Manning. I'm still incredibly angry and bitter about what happened to her (and I hate the fact that they did the "audience votes how this character dies" thing, like the fuck). Mac deserved better that what was done to her in the second season, after hearing what happened in the movie Gia deserved so much better. Just, so many characters deserved better, and interestingly a lot of them are women. Go figure, eh?
A ship I've never been able to get into: Veronica/Logan. Granted, I did like them at first, but after the first season I just couldn't anymore. That, and the fandom really made me despise them entirely (seriously, the level of wank and shipping wars that happened in the VMars fandom was atrocious).
A ship I've never been able to get over: Veronica/Weevil. It never happened in canon, but it should have. They are basically my OTP, tbh. ♥
A cute, low-key ship: Meg/Veronica. Just because. I mean, Meg did take Veronica as her date to the dance. So. ;)
An unpopular ship but I still enjoyed it: Veronica/Piz. I just really liked them together.
A ship that was totally wrong and never should have happened: Veronica/Logan, again. I mean, as I mentioned I did like them initially but I disliked that the show kept doing this on-again/off-again thing with them which really sucked the life out of the show, to be honest. It got tired and boring with them constantly breaking up and getting back together, Logan's possessiveness over Veronica, Logan never learning from his mistakes or growing up. Just no. They brought out the worst in each other and the show would've been 1000% better if they never happened.
My favourite storyline/moment: Veronica searching for the truth of Lilly's death in the first season. It was beautifully done and handled so well, and pretty much was the only solid storyline of the entire series.
A storyline that never should have been written: All the rape storylines, including retconning Veronica's rape and having it have been Cassidy who raped Veronica because he was fucked up due to being a victim of child molestation, which that whole storyline was dumb and stupid too. I feel like after the first season they tried so hard to one-up the Lilly storyline but never could find the right momentum and direction, so they just went all over the place. The second season was a huge example of such a clutter clusterfuck of nonsense that didn't need to exist.
My first thoughts on the show: Veronica Mars is basically Buffy Summers as a teenage private investigator? Count me in!
My thoughts now: In hindsight the show is deeply flawed, I have many issues with how things were written and handled in the second and third seasons (I don't talk about the movie), but I still love and enjoy it.

Legends of Tomorrow.
Renée: Arrow. Sara Lance.rogueslayer452 on March 1st, 2017 12:02 am (UTC)
LEGENDS OF TOMORROW

My all-time ultimate fave character: Sara Lance. ♥
A character I didn't used to like but now do: Mick. His character development in the first season along was something I wasn't expecting, and was pleasantly surprised by.
A character I used to like but now don't: None come to mind at the moment.
A character I'm indifferent about: Nate and Ray.
A character who deserved better: Leonard Snart. His sacrifice heroic, but the show does feel rather empty without his snarky presence.
A ship I've never been able to get into: Kendra/Ray, because it was so random and they didn't have any kind of chemistry with each other whatsoever. Same with the apparent push for Nate/Amaya. They never shared scenes together and now suddenly the writers think they work better than the already slow-building of Mick/Amaya? Seriously? It just makes no sense.
A ship I've never been able to get over: Although this is crossing over with Arrow, Sara/Nyssa. While I like that Sara is able to having her romantic flings while on Legends, Sara/Nyssa is the endgame that I want to have happen regardless. It's sad that Nyssa cannot come onto the show, she would be a great addition.
A cute, low-key ship: Mick/Amaya.
An unpopular ship but I still enjoyed it: Sara/Rip. I started shipping them during the first season, it was rather unexpected actually. Every time they shared a scene there was so much chemistry, and I like that Sara challenges Rip, she stands up to him when she doesn't like something he is planning or saying. It's that kind of relationship that I really like, to be honest. (And with S2, it's breaking my heart but it's also setting it alight at the same time re: them, and I do hope Rip becomes un-brainwashed and returns to who he was.)
A ship that was totally wrong and never should have happened: Kendra/Ray and Nata/Amaya, for reasons already stated.
My favourite storyline/moment: Sara becoming Captain of the Waverider and Team Leader in the second season has been a dream come true. Sara has been through a lot and grown so much, and this was just the next logical step in her journey.
A storyline that never should have been written: I feel like they could have done something completely different in regards to Kendra's internal struggle with her present life and the past lives and her relationship with Carter and what that means. The whole storyline with her and Ray kind of brought the show down a bit, because it seemed so ridiculous and a non-issue, mostly because we never really saw them develop as a couple (the time jump ruined that aspect, and didn't go anyway beyond that). I didn't like how Ray treated her at times, especially knowing that she was having these memories of her past and her strong connection to Carter, and it was just, not really well thought out, imho.
My first thoughts on the show: I'm only in it for Caity Lotz/Sara Lance.
My thoughts now: My silly, ridiculous time traveling show that makes no sense sometimes but I don't care because it is still fun and entertaining! All my precious characters! SARA LANCE MY BAE! ♥

BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER

My all-time ultimate fave character: Faith Lehane. ♥
A character I didn't used to like but now do:
A character I used to like but now don't: Willow Rosenberg and Spike. I liked them in the earlier seasons, but then the writing happened and I'm like, nope. Xander as well, especially since I've gotten older and realized I just don't really care about him that much at all and how much of a dick he was most of the time.
A character I'm indifferent about: Kennedy. I don't have strong feelings about her, but I don't actively dislike her like most of fandom did. I would have preferred Kennedy if she wasn't the rebound for Willow, though. That was awkward, but otherwise I don't particularly mind Kennedy all that much.
A character who deserved better: Tara. The more I think about what happened to her, the angrier and more bitter I get, and not just because of her death either.
A ship I've never been able to get into: Buffy/Spike. I'll admit I liked the concept of them when Spike discovered his crush on Buffy, but once they became canon it ruined everything. And in hindsight, his crush was downright predatory and stalkerish, which is no wonder why he attempted to rape her. So yeah, no, fuck that.
A ship I've never been able to get over: Buffy/Angel and Faith/Buffy. OTPs forever.
A cute, low-key ship: Giles/Jenny.
An unpopular ship but I still enjoyed it: Idk?
A ship that was totally wrong and never should have happened: Buffy/Spike, especially with the way they went about it.
My favourite storyline/moment: There are honestly too many to recall.
A storyline that never should have been written: Season six.
My first thoughts on the show: I came into the show when it was in its third season, however I remember being so delighted because it was just my kind of thing. So I was definitely onboard, especially with having a high school teenage girl fighting monsters.
My thoughts now: It was an iconic series that, while it had its flaws, was a hugely formative for me and I love it so much. One of my top five favorite television shows of all time, hands down.

Like batmarg, I also thought of FBAWTFT initially. That’s how much Percival Graves has ruined my life. *lol*
However, since we all know how amazing Graves is, we might as well skip the fangirling and talk about Battlestar Galactica instead. ;)
Renée: Battlestar Galactica.rogueslayer452 on March 1st, 2017 09:36 pm (UTC)
Part 1
BATTLESTAR GALACTICA

My all-time ultimate fave character: Number Six (all incarnations) and Sharon (Athena and Boomer).
A character I didn't used to like but now do: Leoben. At first I wasn't sure what to make of him, his obsession with Kara was quite creepy; he was interesting as a character, no doubt, but I wasn't sure how to feel about him overall. But I guess I warmed up to him later on. It's a complicated and fucked up, but I find the character intriguing.
A character I used to like but now don't: I'm not quite sure?
A character I'm indifferent about: Cavil, Chief Tyrol, Cally
A character who deserved better: EVERYBODY! This is a series where a lot of depressing things happen, and where so many characters deserved better than what was done to them. Listing them all would take forever.
A ship I've never been able to get into: Kara/Lee. They're fine as friends, but together romantically they were incredibly destructive and brought out the worst in each other. I am not denying there was chemistry and history between them, but they just couldn't make it work. So much that they decided to cheat on their respective spouses in order to be together, knowing how wrong it was but still taking that risk anyway, and that is unforgivable.
A ship I've never been able to get over: Six/Gaius. I just love them so much and throughout the entirety of the series I had hoped that Caprica Six and Gaius would reunite and be together and the fact that they got their happy ending made me so, so happy! Still not over them, even after all these years. Same with Helo/Athena. I rooted for them throughout the show and seeing the progression of their relationship, how much they loved each other, how much they protected each other, it made me so happy that they, too, got their happy ending.
A cute, low-key ship: Idk? I guess I could say Gaeta/Hoshi, but that was only featured in "The Face of the Enemy" webisodes, and it was incredibly brief at that.
An unpopular ship but I still enjoyed it: Kara/Sam. I honestly really loved them together. Also: Kara/Kat and Kara/Kendra.
A ship that was totally wrong and never should have happened: Caprica Six and Saul Tigh. It just felt really weird. Same with the implications with Boomer and Cavil.

Nikita and/or Resident Evil?
Renée: Nikita. Femme Fatale.rogueslayer452 on March 2nd, 2017 08:39 am (UTC)
NIKITA

My all-time ultimate fave character: Nikita Mears and Alexandra Udinov.
A character I didn't used to like but now do: Amanda. It's not that I didn't like her, it's just at first I didn't think much of her aside from the fact that the fabulous Melinda Clarke was playing her and she was wonderful as always, but as her role grew to being the main antagonist of the series, as did my love for the character. She was perfection.
A character I used to like but now don't: Nobody.
A character I'm indifferent about: Percy. He was alright for an antagonist in the first two seasons, but he was just more of an annoyance than anything else.
A character who deserved better: Ryan. :(
A ship I've never been able to get into: I wasn't that into the relationships Alex was involved in, to be honest.
A ship I've never been able to get over: Nikita/Michael, and just how amazing they were as a couple. I feel like they were one of the few mature relationships I've seen on television, and that is incredibly rare (especially on a CW show). They made their relationship work, and even when there were obstacles they worked through them and just, ugh, they were perfect. I'm happy that they got their happy ending. :)
A cute, low-key ship: N/A
An unpopular ship but I still enjoyed it: N/A
A ship that was totally wrong and never should have happened: N/A
My favourite storyline/moment: When Alex was on her separate mission to return to Russia and go to her family home and discovering that her mother was still alive. That whole storyline was heartbreaking in many ways. Also it was the reunion of Alex and Nikita, which while I didn't like that they were apart, but it was necessary for Alex to kind of find herself again and come back with forgiveness in her heart, which Nikita always provided. And I really liked it when Alex basically accepted her role as an Udinov. That was a big step for her. I also really enjoyed it when Nikita got her revenge on those she promised she would, such as Percy and Amanda. Justice was served and it felt so good.
A storyline that never should have been written: I honestly can't remember anything that I felt shouldn't have been written, to be honest.
My first thoughts on the show: Woman kicking ass and taking names? I'm so there.
My thoughts now: Nikita was a perfect example of a reboot done right. It was amazing, and I'm sad that it's so underappreciated. But at least it ended on a happy high note and I'm just so utterly grateful for this show. ♥

Dollhouse.
Renée: Sierra. Incognito.rogueslayer452 on March 3rd, 2017 11:30 am (UTC)
DOLLHOUSE

My all-time ultimate fave character: Echo and Sierra
A character I didn't used to like but now do: Topher, I think. I wasn't sure of his character at first, but he really got quite some character growth later on, and pretty much broke my heart towards the end.
A character I used to like but now don't: I can't think of anyone at the moment.
A character I'm indifferent about: IDK.
A character who deserved better: Bennett and Whiskey/Claire Saunders. :(
A ship I've never been able to get into: N/A
A ship I've never been able to get over: Victor/Sierra. Everything surrounding their relationship in the series makes me super happy, even in the end they basically were still together, making the best out of the dire future that the world had become and what they had become because of it. The fact that there was a happy ending for them (more or less) is something I wasn't expecting, so I was pleasantly surprised and relieved and I'll never get over them, tbh. ♥
A cute, low-key ship: Sierra/Echo.
An unpopular ship but I still enjoyed it: I don't think they're unpopular, but Adelle/Dominic was one of those ships that, even if you weren't actively invested in it you still agreed that there was something about these two characters. I wished we had more scenes with them, or gotten more of their history with each other.
A ship that was totally wrong and never should have happened: IDK.
My favourite storyline/moment: "Epitaph One" and "Epitaph Two" were probably my favorite storyline that I wished had been extended further, or at least given more flashforwards to throughout the second season as kind of a sign of things to come. It's such an intriguing future, and one that I felt would've been better for a second season instead. I don't know, but that is definitely my favorite thing that we never got to fully explore. Also I loved Sierra (Priya's) episode of confronting her abuser. That episode was satisfying and depressing at the same time.
A storyline that never should have been written: Rushing Echo's self-awareness and becoming her own person. I understood that, because of the limitations and the inevitable cancellation looming over their heads they had to move things much faster, which is unfortunate.
My first thoughts on the show: It was another Whedon show that had Eliza Dushku starring in it. Why wouldn't I watch it?
My thoughts now: I can understand why people were uncomfortable with Dollhouse (especially with the way FOX was interfering from the beginning, giving the misconception of what the actual tone and message the show was trying to convey regarding human trafficking with the scifi element). It has its flaws and faults, but I still love it anyway, even though I wished we had gotten the "Epitaph" tone from the beginning of the series. I also feel like Sierra/Priya should've been the main character instead of Echo, since her backstory fits more appropriately for the actual plot.

Jessica Jones! :D
Renée: Jessica Jones.rogueslayer452 on March 3rd, 2017 05:40 am (UTC)
JESSICA JONES

My all-time ultimate fave character: Jessica Jones
A character I didn't used to like but now do: Hogarth. She was one of those characters where you didn't quite know how to feel about them, where you go back and forth on whether you actually liked them or not, but in the end I wound up really liking her. Aside from the fact that they gender switched from the comics, which I do appreciate making the series more woman-centric, Hogarth is another example of a character who is not entirely a saint, who does use people for her own personal gain, and the show fully acknowledges that and she suffers the consequences for it. Her dynamic with Jessica is also quite interesting, and I'm intrigued to see where her character goes.
A character I used to like but now don't: Simpson. When he was introduced he seemed okay and decent enough, but then of course as time went on we saw that wasn't the case at all and he turns out to be just an asshole.
A character I'm indifferent about: N/A
A character who deserved better: Wendy, because no matter what she didn't deserve to be accidentally killed especially when she was underneath Kilgrave's influence. Pam, because despite her naivete she didn't deserve to be tossed under the bus by Hogarth like that. Ruban, because he was just a harmless weird neighbor and what Kilgrave did to him to "send a message" was horrible. Hope Shlottman, most definitely, because after everything she deserved to have her name cleared and her life back. She was innocent and her life, all her achievements and her future, was taken away from her. :(
A ship I've never been able to get into: N/A
A ship I've never been able to get over: Jessica/Luke. I'm not entirely sure they'll be following the comics, but I do hope that they do get back together in the future. For now I understand they need their time apart after everything that went down, but I do want them to have a talk about the events proper.
A cute, low-key ship: N/A
An unpopular ship but I still enjoyed it: N/A
A ship that was totally wrong and never should have happened: I mean, it's super obvious that the answer is going to be Jessica/Kilgrave, but at least the show made it clear to call it out as what it is and how it shouldn't have occurred.
My favourite storyline/moment: I loved seeing the flashbacks to Jessica and Trish when they were teenagers, when Jessica got her abilities and how she saved Trish's life from her abusive mother. Not only was the casting spot-on, but it showed precisely how their relationship formed. Just, everything revolving around Jessica and Trish was beautiful.
A storyline that never should have been written: Not that I didn't think it shouldn't have been written, but the fact that Kilgrave made her place house with him (with a reconstruction of her childhood home inside of her childhood home) was absolutely creepy. I mean, that was the point, and it was to show how repulsive Kilgrave was with his obsession with her and we got Jessica calling him out for being the gross rapist he is. But still, it's an arc that I didn't particularly care for.
My first thoughts on the show: I knew nothing of Jessica Jones before watching, but I knew based on the limited info I had that I was going to really, really love it. And I was right. It was amazing from beginning to end.
My thoughts now: I want season two right now, dammit. I know we're getting The Defenders but I want Jessica Jones season two sooner than later, please.

Am I too late to pick a fandom?

If not, can I pick Warehouse 13 and Psych :)
Renéerogueslayer452 on March 6th, 2017 10:17 pm (UTC)
You're definitely not too late!

WAREHOUSE 13

My all-time ultimate fave character: Claudia Donovan
A character I didn't used to like but now do: Artie, this was during the first season when we didn't quite know what to make of his character and the way he was acting and the decisions he was making. But I quickly warmed up to him.
A character I used to like but now don't: I don't think there's anyone?
A character I'm indifferent about: IDK
A character who deserved better: Myka Bering. I didn't watch the last season (or rather those last six episodes that they counted as the last season), but hearing what they did to her character is a damn travesty. It really was the opposite of who her character has been over the course of the series and it's such a massive disappointment. She deserved much, much better than that bullshit.
A ship I've never been able to get into: Pete/Myka, for obvious reasons.
A ship I've never been able to get over: Myka/H.G., just everything about their dynamic and relationship was so beautiful and it makes me sad that they never got a proper sendoff, either together as a couple or just them as characters.
A cute, low-key ship: Claudia/Meagan. Meagan was a one-episode character from the third season, but I really liked the brief bonding that she and Claudia had when discussing their issues and relating to one another in that way. I kinda low-keyed shipped them ever since.
An unpopular ship but I still enjoyed it: N/A
A ship that was totally wrong and never should have happened: Pete/Myka. Just, ugh! Who thought this was actually a good idea? Seriously. The show has repeatedly mentioned (by the characters themselves!) that they were nothing but good friends, that they saw themselves as siblings and nothing more, they had that brother-sister dynamic down. And the fact that those last six episodes tarnished everything is not only disappointing but it's also infuriating for what they did to the characters, particularly for Myka. I'm grateful that I didn't bother watching those episodes to see the horrible character assassination of her, but at the same time it should never have happened.
My favourite storyline/moment: I really liked the gradual growth of Claudia and her becoming the Caretaker of the Warehouse. Her character development throughout the series was just so beautiful and perfect.
A storyline that never should have been written: Those last six episodes. Just, no.
My first thoughts on the show: Happy family show with magical artifacts yay!
My thoughts now: Looking back at it now, it wasn't perfect, but it developed rather nicely for the most part. The way the show started out you would never have expected it to go down the emotional points that it eventually did. It broke my heart, but it also made me very happy. I loved anything surrounding found families and we got that as the team started to grow.

(I haven't watched or cared about anything beyond the first two seasons, just so you know, lol)

THE VAMPIRE DIARIES

My all-time ultimate fave character: Katherine Pierce, my queen. ♥
A character I didn't used to like but now do: Elijah Mikaelson, and I'm thinking mostly to his introduction on the show and how they progressed with his character after that, particularly with The Originals.
A character I used to like but now don't: IDK
A character I'm indifferent about: IDK
A character who deserved better: Katherine Pierce. Like seriously, she was a fabulous antagonist but the fact that they killed her off and had her dragged off to Hell was possibly the worst thing ever, especially when characters like Damon existed for being even more awful and despicable. Katherine deserved much better than the trash that was handed to her on this show. Also, from what I've heard, Elena deserved better writing in the later seasons. Hell, most of them deserved better than how the writers did things, to be honest.
A ship I've never been able to get into: Damon/Elena. Damon and anyone, really.
A ship I've never been able to get over: Elena/Stefan
A cute, low-key ship: Stefan/Caroline
An unpopular ship but I still enjoyed it: Katherine/Elena.
A ship that was totally wrong and never should have happened: Damon/Elena
My favourite storyline/moment: When Katherine was officially introduced into the show, and not just through flashbacks. That was possibly the most iconic and unforgettable moment of the entire show. And when they were getting to the Originals storyline, since I really ended up liking the Mikaelson siblings quite a bit, Rebekah being my favorite of course.
A storyline that never should have been written: Because I have only seen the first two seasons fully I don't know much else that happened after that aside from what I have heard and read, but after hearing about the whole "Elena being sired by Damon and therefore does whatever he tells her to without question" storyline, I have to say that was possibly the most dumbest thing. And just anything that placed Damon on a pedastal and treated him like a victim when he was just an asshole being a despicable person.
My first thoughts on the show: I remember when people actually raved about the show, and decided to check it out for myself. And after watching the pilot I was addicted and sucked into this new vampire show.
My thoughts now: I was smart enough to quit watching before I reached the point where everything went to shit, as advised by others, and I was right in doing so. I'm not going to say I'm sad that it's finally over now, and I will say that it's disappointing that there were so many wasted opportunities and horrible writing choices that they did over the years. But thank you, show, for introducing me to the beauty and wonder that is Nina Dobrev. ♥
