The TV Show Tag

I pinched this blogger tag from Princess Deia, so be sure to pop over and see her answers as well. If you want to do this yourself, consider yourself tagged. Header photo is by Sven Scheuermeier on Unsplash.

Favourite shows?

Doctor Who, Stargate SG1/Atlantis/Universe, Lucifer, The Umbrella Academy, Warehouse 13, Firefly, Farscape (to the end of S3), Eureka, Sanctuary, Life on Mars/Ashes to Ashes, Star Trek DS9 & Discovery, Babylon 5. Probably more I’m forgetting right now.

Favourite genre?

Science fiction. I’ve been fascinated with the concept of exploring the galaxy since I was a child. I love the possibilities of space.

Least favourite show?

Sorry, but it’s Supernatural. It’s very unkind to its women characters and I hate the queer baiting that’s been going on. I’ve also only caught a small snippet of Game of Thrones and hated that, too.

Most re-watched show/favourite show to binge watch?

Probably SG1. I don’t tend to rewatch an entire show, though I am just finishing up Warehouse 13 for the second time. Rather, I rewatch favourite episodes, which is definitely SG1.

Do you prefer watching things week-by-week or binge-watching?

Well I’m old, so I’m used to the weekly format. That said, I devoured both The Umbrella Academy and Lucifer season 4 in a couple of days each. There are pros and cons to each approach, I think.

Favourite television characters?

Baal (SG1), Bialar Crais (Farscape), Lucifer Morningstar (Lucifer), Myka Baring and Helena Wells (Warehouse 13), Nikola Tesla and Helen (Sanctuary), River Song (Doctor Who)

Favourite television ships?

I rarely go for the ‘official’ ship of a show. My OTP of all time is Sam Carter/Baal of SG1. I also rooted for Crais/Aeryn. I am team Deckerstar (Lucifer) though, and I love the Doctor/River.

Show you could never get into?

Dark Matter. I really, really tried, but it just didn’t click. This may be because it was cancelled by the time I got to it.

Show you fell out of love with?

Farscape. Partly down to Crais’s death, but mostly the show’s politics. The fandom turned sour and I walked away. Crais remains a favourite character, however, and I’ve been lucky enough to meet Lani Tupu, who is lovely.

Cancelled too soon?

Warehouse 13. This show is my happy place and I was heartbroken when it was cancelled. I’d not say no to more Firefly either.

Guilty pleasure show?

I don’t believe in “guilty pleasures.”  It’s a phrase used to look down on certain genres and the people who watch them.

What are you currently watching?

I’ve just finished S4 of Lucifer, so I need a new obsession. I do need to catch up on The Good Place and iZombie.

  1. Ah, I love this tag and we have many favourite TV shows in common. Including Firefly, Doctor Who, SG1, Sanctuary (I love Nikola Tesla and Jon!) and Warehouse 13. I’m going to have to do this one soon.
