Day 11 -- Almost every show I have ever watched disappointed me at some point, usually at the finale but sometimes much earlier. It would be better to list the shows that did not disappoint. That would be Farscape and Supernatural so far. Though both of those shows got on my nerves at a few points along the way. The major disappointments would be Buffy and Doctor Who and Battlestar Galactica. All three of those shows took seriously wrong turns and didn't recover from the mistake. As I've said before on this blog, I feel that most shows simply use the same device over and over again for too long. The major failing of most shows is a lack of courage and imagination. They get set in their ways and the characters stop growing and changing. I will say that Buffy did the best job at changing, which is why when they started resetting the character to a heroes don't make mistakes default it was so very jarring. Doctor Who also made a sort of jarring error by claiming that the hero was a god, and beyond real love, rather than a space nerd in need of companionship.
Day 12 -- There are a few episodes I've watched many times. Buffy and Doctor Who hold the records for reviewing for me. I watched all of the Spike-centric episodes of Buffy many times. But I also watched the early Angel/Buffy episodes, too. I have a particular fancy for Doctor Who's "Robots of Death"...Four and Leela on a space liner...I don't know how many times I've watched it. Quite a few. I also watched Kinda several times with Five and Tegan. And, of course, Fear Her and Tooth & Claw. For my fellow Beauty and the Beast fan, I've watched most of S1 and S2 multiple times.
Day 13 -- I didn't really watch television as a child as we didn't have a TV for much of the time. But I do remember watching Land of the Lost at some point. Oh, I did just love Space: 1999.
Day 14 -- Favorite Male Character. Oh, now, there is a real challenge for me, given what has become of the Doctor. I have enjoyed a host of male characters in fiction. I am quite fond of Dean Winchester for example. But I suppose it would have to be the Doctor, still. He's my favorite character overall, even with his recent downturn into fecklessness. So, it must be him.
Day 15 -- Favorite Female Character. At one point, before she went into self-righteous pity mode, I would have said Buffy Summers. But her treatment of Spike soured me on her. And I also didn't care for her acceptance of some of the less deserving characters on the show. Now, I imagine it is most definitely Rose Marion Tyler. She's the only woman I think would be a good match for the Doctor and that's saying something.
