 Day 24 - Best quote

My favourite quote (one of many, anyway) is Logan's drunken description of his and Veronica's relationship, after they broke up.

"I thought our story was epic, you know. You and me. Spanning years and continents. Lives ruined, blood shed. Epic."

 Day 15 - Favorite female character 

This was tough one, there are a LOT of kick ass ladies out there that love, but If I reeeeeally have to narrow it down, I'm going to go with Veronica Mars. No, Sara Lance. NO! Olivia Dunham. 

Okay, okay, Veronica Mars, that's my final answer. She's a marshmallow. A marshmallow that can kick your ass ten ways to Sunday. If you have not watched Veronica Mars yet, WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR??

 Day 08 - A show everyone should watch

Argh, I'm so torn! I wanna say both Veronica Mars and Community

Veronica Mars is full of brilliant storytelling and incredible characters, and anyone who has not watched it is missing out in life. But if you're just not into 'serialised' crime-ish procedurals, it's premise may not lure you over. But trust me, it's soooo much more than 'teen misfit detective solves crimes in her spare time', it really is! The relationship between Veronica and her dad Keith is my favourite parent/child relationship of all time. They are gold. And then there's all the Logan and Veronica goodness! But...

Community is a bit more... "appealing to all mankind" (their words, not mine). It is an amazing, character driven comedy, and who doesn't love those? Even during its rough patches, Community shines (apart from Grifting 101, seriously, skip that one). The writing and performances are seriously top notch, and they are not afraid to step outside the box with some of their episodes.

To reeeeally kick things off, I'm starting with a meme all about my second favourite thing in the world, TV! (Chocolate is the first, in case you were wondering.)

Here is the list of meme questions for you to steal if you so wish:

Meme questions )
Onto the first question!

Day 01 - A show that never should have been cancelled

That's a though one to start on... There are a lot of shows I wanted another season of, but that's more due the fact that I hate NOT KNOWING how things end, more than the show being super high quality with lots of potential. Shows like Flashforward, Persons Unknown and The Nine fall into this category. I understand why they got cancelled... They just weren't good enough to draw interest. But these all ended in cliffhangers, and for the love of God, I still want to know what happened next! WHYYY?

Almost Human and Alphas did have potential, but sadly, I think they weren't handled as well as they could have, and their audience never really grew. 

Then there's shows that never really got off the ground, like Three Inches and Lone Star. Those seemed to have potential, and I guess I do think they shouldn't have been cancelled. But neither of those really qualify as shows since Lone Star got axed three episodes in, and the Three Inches pilot basically aired as a TV movie. 

I wanna say Community or Fringe, but to be honest, even a big fan like myself can admit those two were near their sell by dates, and cancellation was probably a good thing. As long as we get our movie. 

I think that leaves me with Go On, which I really do think deserved at least another season. It was well written, Matthew Perry was on fire, and it was heartwarming and hilarious. It had a lot of story to tell, and the cast was great. 

But what I really want to with, logic and reasoning be damned, is Veronica Mars, because it never should have been fracking cancelled ever you evil CW bastards. Look, I know season 3 was kind of a mess, but you should have given it a chance, man! Veronica would never have let you down! She was your girl, you backstabbing monsters!

At least we finally got a movie. It better not take Community this long. #SixSeasonsAndAMovie
