DAY 04: Your favorite show ever



This could really have been a number of different shows. It's more than impossible to pick a favourite TV series of all time but, following on from yesterday, Firefly definitely deserves a huge mention. Part science fiction/part western Firefly is the story of nine different people who travel together through space in a Firefly class spaceship doing any kind of jobs they can in order to keep flying and remain free from the conformities of  the modern system of government. With its strong and nuanced characters and clever writing Firefly is quite easily my favourite Whedon venture despite its very short run. That's not to say that I dislike the rest of Whedon's work, there's just something about the heart of this show and it's idea of freedom, and what that means, that really speaks to me. While Buffy will always be my first love Firefly is my true love.

Warning: This video contains some spoilers for both Firefly and the movie Serenity.

DAY 03: Your favorite new show (aired this TV season)



It may not have started new this season but my favourite 'new' show is Castle. I'm not necessarily a fan of crime procedurals but I've been enjoying this one a lot more than Bones recently. On the face of it it's just another case of guy and girl - in this case a mystery novel writer and a homicide detective - who despite having very different ways of doing things team up together to solve crimes. I only gave this show a shot because it had Nathan Fillion as one of the leads but I'm glad I did because it's cute and rather funny. Sure the cases can be a bit predictable at times but all the characters are fun and interesting in their own ways. And while the main focus is generally on the simmering UST between Castle and Beckett it's Castle's home-life and his relationship with his daughter and mother that provides the heart for the show. The young actress who plays Castle's daughter is amazing. Also Castle is one of those shows that never takes itself too seriously and has actually included more than a few nods and in-jokes relating to previous roles that the actors have played, the greatest of which has to be this one.


Finally, I can't help but love a show which after having the main character write a novel based on his new muse, Detective Kate Beckett, then hires a ghostwriter to actually write said novel and release it as a promotional tie-in. The fact that Nathan Fillion attended a few book launches and performed book signings as his character Richard Castle is just insanely awesome. A second novel is due out later this year. :D

Here it is. My long overdue account of what I did on the weekend.

My little sister and I took a little trip to the city to see Jason Palmer, Ron Glass and Nathan Fillion.

For those who want to know more follow the cut.

Also I have now seen the pilot episodes for Drive, Pushing Daisies and Reaper.

Drive was very entertaining. I thought it had much 'Lost' potential. I can't see why on earth it was cancelled except that we all know what network it was on. >:(

I absolutley loved Pushing Daisies. I can't wait until it starts up here so I watch the whole season.

Reaper though didn't interest me at all. It seemed rather average to me and none of the characters were all that interesting. Does it get better?
