List 10 TV shows you like, in no specific order. Do this before reading the questions below.
4. Criminal Minds
6. Battlestar Galactica
7. Stargate Atlantis
8. Doctor Who
10. American Idol
1) - Who's your favourite character in 1? (Merlin)
I’d have to say it’s a toss up between Merlin and Arthur – some episodes I like them both equally, then the next I prefer Merlin because Arthur’s being a particularly giant prat, then the next Arthur because Merlin’s being dense… and so on. You get the picture.
2) - What's your favourite ship in 2? (Dollhouse)
Huh, I don’t actually have a ship… no, wait, I kinda do. I think it has to be Topher/Echo. If you guys have ever seen Dollhouse you’ll understand why it’s so difficult to actually have a ship in this fandom, but I really like the way Topher starts to connect with Echo towards the end of the first season (please let there be more!).
3) - What ship can't you stand in 8? (Doctor Who)
Absolutely cannot stand Ten/Martha; it’s just far too fricking cliché.
4) - What first drew you into 6? (Battlestar Galactica)
Well, my brother and father watched it an awful lot, but it was always showing during autumn, which was when I started university, therefore I didn’t have Sky. But one day, whilst I was at home for Christmas, I just sat down with my brother and started watching it – it was 3x16, “Dirty Hands”, wherein there’s all sorts of interesting political stuff going on. It made me realise that there was far more to the show than I had previously thought… thus, I went back and watched it all.
5) - Something that you loved about 3? (Eureka)
Oh God, everything! I love the quirkiness of the whole concept, and the ridiculous science, and the silly plots, and every single character. (Actually I hate one thing; they kill off one of my favourite characters in the third season…. Grrrr!)
6) - Something that you hated about 5? (Supernatural)
Hmmm, nothing really. I’d just like to see a tiny bit more emotional interaction between the brothers; which I know is never going to happen. Plus, if it actually did, I don’t think I’d enjoy it at all. The boys’ relationship works in the show as it is. (This is all on the basic of the first 2 ½ seasons, as I have yet to see the rest…)
7) - Favourite episode in 7? (Stargate Atlantis)
I have lots, but I’ll narrow it down to one: got to be 5x6 “The Shrine”, where Rodney is infected by that parasite that presents itself as a disease that the natives call Second Childhood. I love it right from the very beginning, with the team sitting on top of the stargate. I love the interaction, the pacing, I love Rodney’s sister and her take-charge attitude, I love the format of the whole thing. David Hewlett’s acting is superb, and I adore the whole Keller/Rodney interaction, even though I’m such a McShep person it’s untrue.
8) - Who's your favourite character in 9? (NCIS)
Has to be Tony; I absolutely adore him!
9) - What's your favourite ship in 10? (American Idol)
Without a doubt, Kradam, closely followed by Cookleta.
10) - What ship can't you stand in 4? (Criminal Minds)
Uh, nothing really; it’s such a small fandom, that there really isn’t that many that I hate.
11) - What first drew you into 10? (American Idol)
Well, the awesome singing, of course!
12) - Something that you loved about 9? (NCIS)
I love the dynamics of the team; the storylines are getting better and better, but what does it for me, is still the way everyone on the team interacts with each other.
13) - Something that you hated about 7? (Stargate Atlantis)
The fact that it ended!
14) - Favourite episode in 2? (Dollhouse)
Well, I’ve only seen season one, so, I can tell you it’s not 1x13, “Epitaph One”, which is probably most people’s favourite. I, in fact, prefer 1x7, “Echoes”, quite simply because it’s fricking hilarious!
