Long time reader & stealth contributer, but I only recently made a contributor page (September 2009). TV Tropes
actually got me interested in Watchmen
, The Dark Knight Returns
, Neon Genesis Evangelion
and others. You can probably guess my profession from my handle.
Favorite series include:
- Buffy the Vampire Slayer
- Doctor Who
- Fringe (The best show on TV right now.)
- Kings (May NBC wise up and bring it back)
- Here's my brief rant on Kings: Why is it that every show on network TV is about cops, lawyers, doctors, or so-called "reality"? Why is it that networks feel the need to create endless spinoffs of the same show? There's a zillion CSI, Law & Order, or Survivor shows. Kings was finally a breath of fresh air. It's innovative, amazingly well-written, well-acted, interesting, and visually beautiful. So naturally NBC decides to can it.
- Star Trek (Especially the seasons where Next Generation and DS 9 overlapped, the even-numbered movies with the original cast, and J.J. Abrams's reboot)
- Star Wars (But only the original trilogy. The prequels can die for all I care)
- I'd actually like to write my own version of the prequels, where Anakin Skywalker is a good guy, the Jedi aren't Xanatos Suckers, and the Clone Wars were fought for a reason.
