New Fandoms Abound!

It has been just AGES since I've posted, so wouldn't you just know it: I'm copping out and posting a meme. Yeah. Well.

Pick your five favorite TV shows (in no particular order) and answer the following questions. Don't cheat!

1. Better Off Ted
2. How I Met Your Mother
3. Bones
4. Avatar: the Last Airbender
5. Chuck

01. Who's your favourite character in 2?
Hate to be totally predictable, but it's Barney all the way. He steals my heart with his amusing jitteriness whenever his feelings for Robin get to him.

02. Who's your least favourite character in 1?
Rose, Ted's daughter. She annoys the living shit out of me. It's mostly the actress's fault (Yes, I'm blaming a little girl. Child actors often suck, and this is no exception.), but I also think the writers made her too precocious.

03. What's your favourite episode of 4?
Ooh. Tough. Am I allowed to choose the entire four-part finale? That was so amazingly epic, idec. On a smaller scale, "The Western Air Temple" always amuses me to no end.

04. What's your favourite season of 5?
Season THREE because it will EXIST, OKAY NBC? But that aside, season 2 wins by a hair. Both seasons are pretty consistently good.

05. Who are your favourite ship in 3?
Booth/Brennan. I was tempted to name one of my pet ships, like Cam/Hodgins, but at the end of the day, even after all the hype, I still care the most for B&B.

06. Who are your antiship in 2?
Ted/Robin. You guys, seriously, stop having ~little moments~. Your audience does not appreciate it.

07. How long have you watched 1?
I caught it from the very first episode. Whenever that aired.

08. How did you become interested in 3?
It was House's lead-in, for one. I used to think it was really cheesy from the tail-end I would catch every once in a while, but my best friend would never shut up about it, and I started watching entire episodes, and I will stop now b/c you don't want my life story.

09. Who's your favourite actor/actress in 4?
... lol. Um. They're... not... actors. Mako? I miss him like you wouldn't believe. Greg Baldwin is okay but he's just not the same. Maybe if there had been more Iroh in season 3 I could've gotten used to him. As it stands, no dice.

10. Which do you prefer: Season 1 of 2 or 5?
For the answer to that, you just have to check which one I tune into and which one I download later on Monday nights. Hint: it's Chuck.

11. Which show have you seen more episodes of, 1 or 3?
Bones, since it's been on longer. But I've seen every episode of both.

12. If you could be anyone from 4, who would you be?
Toph, bitches. She's such an amazing bad-ass. All of that would be so worth the whole blind thing.

13. How would you kill off your favourite character in 1?
That seems kind of masochistic, but all right. Favourite character: Lem. My M.O.: Re-install the light sensors, stick him on an elevator, erect "out-of-order" signs over all the elevator doors so no white people get on the elevator, and let him starve to death. Well, you asked. I was trying to be creative.

14. Give a random quote from 1?
Oh happy day, you have given me an excuse to go search for BOT quotes.
PHIL: Linda, you can't hurt a baby.
LEM: Well, you can hurt them. They're not indestructible.
PHIL: I meant it's morally indefensible.
LEM: Well, what if the baby killed a man?
PHIL: You and your moral puzzles. I just love 'em.

16. Would a 3/4 crossover work?
NOOOOOOOOmaybe. I dunno, now you've made me think. I'm seeing Brennan, studying the bones of the slaughtered air nomads from each of the four temples... I'm seeing her leading an expedition, squints in tow, of the buried library in the desert. Maybe they find the remains of that anthropology professor, surrounded by his books with a huge grin on his face. Don't think Booth would be interested, tbqh. He can stay home.

17. Pair 2 characters in 1 that would make an unlikely but strangely okay couple.
Lem and Linda. If she could get over her aversion to the smell of science, they could find some common ground.

18. Has 5 inspired you in any way?
Not anything I acted on. I really wanted to make some grand gesture to improve Chuck's ratings and with it, its chances of renewal. But I've never been so frustrated that I live in Canada. Not really much I can do.

19. Overall, which show has a better cast, 2 or 4?
Wh... I... you need to stop. How am I supposed to do that? HIMYM by default.

20. Which has better theme music, 3 or 5?
Ooh, I LOVE Chuck's theme, Cake's "Short Skirt/Long Jacket". Wins by a landslide. Although I have Bones' theme on my iPod too.

This shows an interesting reflection of how my tastes in TV have changed. A couple months ago, this would have been filled with House and Prison Break and yadda, what a drama-llama I was. Now it's all about the comedies.
Tomorrow I have my first ever job interview. Tim Hortons. Wish me luck.
