Daenerys. Khaleesi.

And the world keeps on spinning.

++ I'm kind of proud that I have managed to convert several more people to Legend of the Seeker, kinda like how I was converted immediately after being intrigued by the show itself. So it's an ongoing cycle of getting converted and addicted, which is kinda fun when you think about it. I've just been so amazed at how I never saw this show before now, and I'm hoping for those of you who have gotten into it and love it that you'll help save the show despite the cancellation. There is still hope, don't give up!

Also yes secondstar, I have recently bought Wizard's First Rule by Terry Goodkind and will be reading it soon.

++ I don't watch LOST. I haven't watched LOST since the first season because I kinda got bored after that, and that I never really cared about all this talk about it. However, it seemed that thanks to this F_W post I actually understand what happened in the series finale and the overall sense of the show. And it's kind of funny that someone like me, who hasn't been paying attention to anything LOST and doesn't care for these last six years it's been on, understands what happened more than some hardcore fans have. I mean sure it's complicated and mightily confusing and some of it I'm not quite sure how it fits, but from my own perspective inside my own head it makes a weird kind of sense.

I also am compelled to watch it now, BUT ONLY FOR MARKSHA. I don't care about Jack or Kate or whoever else is on that show. I just want the interesting scenes with Jacob and his storyline with the MIB. DAMN YOU MARKSHA, YOU MAKE ME WANNA WATCH THESE THINGS THAT I HAD NO INTEREST IN BEFORE! *shakes fist*

++ Oh, and speaking of which, Misha explaining slash to Marksha and that it "unites the world" will never not be the bestest thing ever. ♥ Oh Misha, you always want to bring up the slashfic wherever you go.
BTVS. Buffy Summers.

Day 7: "I should care about this, why?"

Day 07 - Least favorite episode of your favorite TV show

There's not a specific episode, but some of the stand-alones in Battlestar Galactica's third season. I liked some of them well enough but overall they didn't really serve much purpose for furthering the bigger story that was being told, which for a series like BSG everything was fluid in its storytelling so it seemed kind of off when they did one of those here and there. I believe it was the network that pushed for those stand-alones until Ron Moore took control again and decided he was going to do things his way.

For Buffy the Vampire Slayer there were many episodes I didn't favor, most of them were in the latter half of the series, especially in the sixth season because that was my least favorite season ever. So it's really hard to say. I think "Where The Wild Things Are" in season four was just that random wtf kind of episode where it was just so horribly bad, it's that "what were they thinking?" kind of an episode. The only redeeming quality of it was having Anthony Stewart Head singing with his guitar in that one scene, because him singing is never a bad thing. But yeah, I think even though I loved BTVS it had quite a handful of cringeworthy episodes which, for a series running as long as that of course it's gonna have its bad eggs of either episodes or seasons in general. It's just the inevitable.

And for the sake of it, in Supernatural it's mostly the filler episodes in these last two seasons which they should have minimized greatly when dealing with a larger than life apocalyptic plot. As for specifics, definitely "I Know What You Did Last Summer" and "Heaven and Hell", which I think everyone knows the obvious reasons why those episodes sucked major. DNW ever again, Kripke.

Masterlist of days here.
