So while I’m cranking our some good daily word counts (I’m hoping to enter a few contests this winter and want to be able to have time to do a quick edit before submitting), I’m going to write about something sort of writing related.
I refer of course to my TV watch list. When I’m not trying to terrorize the Wild West by letting my magic-wielding heroine through it, or chasing my toddler around, I’m a big geek and my TV favorites often reflect this. For now, I will discuss my network favorites, the summer schedule should be a post of its own.
1) The Big Bang Theory and its geeky antics are one of our favorites. The toddler attended a Phoenix Comic con in a Baby Sheldon costume just because. While many of Sheldon’s lines are our favorites, I truly think Leonard is the guy most geeks relate to. Most of my favorite episodes involve appearances of Evil Wil Wheaton. The teenagers I work with in my day job have this joke that I’m like Sheldon because I decide all ties. i also had a group one year that adopted the phrase, “That’s how we roll in the Shire!”
2) Castle had me at Nathan Fillion although I love the interactions with his daughter and mother the best. That and the times his top of the line laser tag equipment comes up.
3) Revolution has me considering writing dystopian/post-apocalyptic someday. I was intrigued by the combination of J.J. Abrams and Eric Kripke and giddy that Jon Favreau directed the pilot. Billy Burke’s character is my absolute favorite and I’m intrigued at the world building that they’ve done.
4) Once Upon a Time is a lot of fun with their retold story characters but the cliffhangers have made me fail and nearly throw pillows much to my husband’s amusement. I also love some of the casting that they’ve done. It’s a lot of fun to watch.
At some point I will catch up on Fringe. Peter Bishop, I miss you so. Your shenanigans with Walter are some of my favorite. I like to think of you as X-Files of the corporate world. However, I have to be much more limited in my TV now a days between writing and the toddler, but there’s some really good stuff out there.
