Well I'm packed ... except for the tea bags and kettle, of course! I heard form the movers that they will be here 9am-ish ... so that means no hanging around! (I hope)
So I have some spare minutes I thought I would meme as most of my started icons are on Dad's pc ... So, I snagged this a couple of weeks ago from raven_mcbain and now have time to play! I know I still owe kudagirl her answers ... but, guess what, I'm still stumped (10 out of 10!!)
Pick your five favorite TV shows (in no particular order) and answer the following questions about them. Don’t cheat!
2) Star Trek, Voyager
3) Dr Quinn, Medicine Woman
4) Vampire Diaries
5) Blake's 7
So, I listed these befor looking at the questions ... honest ...
1) Who is your favorite character in 2?
There are some great characters in Voyager ... but I do like Belanna Torres. I also think her character is explored well, both as a Klingon, and her human side. How she copes with Starfleet and love are both seen, and I don't think she is allowed to compromise the strong woman she is.
2) Who is your least favorite character in 1?
LOL - Angel!
Although I suppose, if I was honest, I would actually say Xander. Angel does try to be good ... and even leaves for Buffy's sake. I think he's wrong to do that ... but it's who he is. Xander, on the other hand, is quite shallow and selfish most of the time. He never really gets over the loss of Buffy, although he naver had her in the first place. He is happy to point out other's character flaws, yet won't admit to having any himself.
3) What is your favorite season in 5?
I like season 3 ... no Blake! I like seeing how Cally and Avon's relationshp develope (well, in my mind it does!) ... and it's interesting to watch Avon in command ... plus the new characters of Tarrant and Dayna, who I don't particularily like, but who have more depth than Blake or Jenna. A sad ending ... but sometimes you need that to sum up a show, or a season.
4) What’s your favorite ship in 3?
Dr Quinn and Sully ... of course! She battles much to become a doctor and he battles against governments to try to maintain the Navtive Americans ... yet together they learn to love, and compromise ... and work together.
Although on a friendship level, I like see Brian with Mr Bray - the surrogate grandfather.
5) How long have you watched 1?
Since it finished - LOL
I watched my first ever episode, by accident, of mid-season 7. I fell in love with a voice, a face (and an actor) ... and when I found out his story I fell in love with the character ... yes, Spike. Then I watched the whole series - and bought the DVDs to watch the whole show. Will admit when I started watching season 1 my first reaction was, where's Spike? But I soon just loved the whole show.
6) How did you become interested in 3?
I went to visit Toni who was recovering from flu and she had the TV on .... afternoon TV ... Sully is easy on the eyes! Then seeing about a female doctor in the 19th century fascinated me ... and combined with the fact we had friends who had just moved to Colorado ... I started watching it when I was around.
7) Who is your favorite actor in 4?
Ian Somerhaulder ... another guy who's easy on the eye. And his characetr developement has been brilliant to watch, as well. I don't think I have seen any of the VD actors in anything else ... so that's just based on the one show.
8) Which show do you prefer, 1, 2, or 5?
That is a hard one. Blake's 7 I've watched since 1978, Voyager was the first show I bought the DVDs for ... and then there's James! All 3 shows have complete story arks ... only Voyager having a "happy ending" for all.
No, I can't decide - sorry.
9) Which show have you seen more episodes of, 1 or 3?
BtVS - I haven't seen all the Dr Quinn episodes ... but BtVS I've seen them all at least 3 times ... and some more than that. I plan to do a re-watch when I get to my new place, this winter.
10) If you could be anyone from 4, who would you be?
Elena ... she has Damon in love with her!
No, I think Caoline is a great person - very shallo when we met her, yet having bad things happen have given her a real depth and taught her to find her hidden strength.
11) How would you kill off your favorite character in 1?
We all saw Spike die in Chosen ... and I suppose, although I still scream at the TV it was a great death for him - making sure his girl got out, and letting his soul burn away the badness around and save the world.
12) Would a 3/4 crossover workout?
Dr Quinn and Vampire Diaries ... having vampires aroung would certainly give Dr Mike and Sully many reasons to argue and debate .... but living in a small community must be hard for vampires to keep their victims hidden ... although Stefan & Damon were turned at about that era. So, I suppose yes it would work.
13) Pair two characters in 1 that would make an unlikely, but strangely okay couple:
Tara and Oz .... they both loved Willow, yet in themselves were truly lovely characters. Both strong, and felt deeply about things - both loved study. They would have a quiet strong relationship.
14) Has 5 inspired you in any way?
It showed me my first touch of fandom ... and through the 6-monthly mag I met a couple of people who are now friends.
The show itself were "fighting the federation" ... and I often laugh, because, although not all that political, I am anti-European. I love being English, and I love Europe as a selection of unique contries ... so I thing Blake's 7 could help me fight against the beurocrats in Brussels!
15) Over all, which show has a better cast, 3 or 5?
Jane Seymore was Dr Quinn ... and Blake was a low-budget show.
16) Which has better theme music, 2 or 4?
Voyager - in fact I tend to think most space shows tend to have quite rousing themes (just think of Thunderbirds!)
