as the polls close...  
I'm fascinated by the poll results. I knew there'd be a solid show of support for Angel S5, and for SGA, but that's about all I could predict. The results tell me a lot about current fannish trends (or at least, trends in the Venn subset of "fans" and "people who read my journal"). Big damn Doctor Who enthusiasm; and of course Firefly is riding the post-movie swell--I should have expected that. Also a good showing for Nip/Tuck & MST3K. You are my peeps, yo.

But nobody wanted me to watch Profiler (sniff) even though I'd just finished the episode where they killed off [SPOILER]. That was crushing. That's why I had to stop for a bit. It was just so bitterly cruel of them. Bastards. THEY KILLED KENNY! Except for how his name wasn't Kenny.

Annnnyway. Only five of you wanted me to watch Alias? Dude. That's sad.

I give bonus hard-core Hewlett fan-points to wickedwords, z_rayne, and sp23 for their Boa vote. And boniblithe, kumi, and delmi correctly divined my need to watch Seinfeld, which is what I did. I needed to giggle witlessly for a few hours while making a poster of steamed groats. (Don't ask.) Several smart people also said "Up with zombies!" Others whispered "Rollo Tomasi," which is intuitive, as I've been fantasizing about BudWhiteAndRodneyShutUp!!!! And _divya_ reminded me that Due South should have gone on the list, because I have most of S3 on DVD as yet unwatched.

I also forgot to include 24 S1 (::waves to sherrold and anaxila::), which I just bought.

You all fascinate me!

My mind is currently boggling in the most intrigued sort of way.

I used to enjoy Profiler a lot, then, from one day to the next, taping got a hassle and I started missing episodes. I never managed to get back into it. It got a little contrived, I thought. Still, for a time Profiler and Millenium were the only shows I watched.

As for Alias, I adore Jack Bristow, but most of the other characters irritate the crap out of me. Marshall foremost.

Yay 24 S1! I will use my Bauer icon in solidarity.

It's not so much that I didn't want you to watch Alias, because I would give just about anything for you to get back your J/V mojo. It's that I didn't think undertaking an ambitious multi-season re-watch project when you're in the middle of this phase where things don't hold your attention for that long. Dr. Who is a much more manageable starter project. Just 13 episodes. It hardly counts. See, it's all about you!

Also - 24! See Jack Bauer be surly! Hear the velvet roar! Plus - he's gonna shoot you! I think you stopped watching just on the cusp of my favorite episode, which is a bummer. I actually brought all of the DVDs with me to India, but S4 really made me cranky and I'm not sure I'm ready to forgive yet.

I wanted you to watch AtS5 because I'm scared you will get spoiled, and even more scared that it will be me that accidentally does it!

It's the gun!porn, man. And the tee-shirt. And the part where he's explaining what is and is not snake genitalia. *g* Okay, pretty much all of it that DH is in; the rest I just skim over because OMG it burns!

Oh - yes. The gun/porn and DH's passion over snakes. sherk! I nearly wore out my fast forward button on this one.

however, DH in good shape and in a t-shirt.


One day I'll be able to make the witty and astute comments that I see on other lists but I obviously have a loooonnnnngggg ways to go.

I feel like Alias has kinda taken a downward turn in terms of fan support, yes? I've seen the first three seasons, since I own them, but since I was watching them while S4 aired, I hadn't seen S4. So I started downloading them as torrents, but got to something like 4x08 before I stopped... it's just not that fascinating of a show anymore.

Instead, I watch Firefly ALL THE TIME. Even though there's only 14 episodes. I am obsessed, kthx.
