2011 fandom meme or basically cultural obsession/interest meme


Your main fandom of the year?

I still *still* have not recovered from the end of BSG.  This is sad.  It is all Sam & Kara's fault.

However, I am making progress moving on.  I am fan girling three or four shows pretty hard right now:

Game of Thrones  (STARK FAMILY, SANSA! ROBB!  DANY! CAT!!)
Vampire Diaries (TYLER!  CAROLINE! STEFAN! BONNIE!)
Once Upon A Time [this one is on notice because I am not pleased with the whole killing off Sheriff Graham thing]
Mad Men - IF IT WOULD ONLY COME BACK!

Your favorite film you watched this year?

Easy - Deathly Hallows Part 2

Non-Harry Potter Honorable Mention goes to Moneyball and Hugo.

Your favorite book read this year?

I - really don't read that much non-fiction.  I mostly read history and science books.  I guess that is kind of dull of me.

Your favorite tv show of the year?

Game of Thrones - I think this love is going to last.  :)
Vampire Diaries - I've stuck with it this long even though it frequently irritates me.  (i.e. killing off Aunt Jenna for no good reason)

Your best new fandom discovery of the year?

I guess my answers are getting boring because...  Game of Thrones.


Your biggest fandom disappointment of the year?

I don't think that either Terra Nova or Falling Skies really lived up to my expectation.  Though I hold out hope for both.  The real disappontment was Walking Dead, which I have dropped.

Your fiction boyfriend of the year?

I'll say Sheriff Graham on OUAT.   Whaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!!!

Also Robb Stark on GOT and Tyler Lockwood on TVD.

Your fiction girlfriend of the year?

Faye Chamberlian (who rules all) on Secret Circle.

Also Sansa Stark on GOT and Caroline Forbes on TVD.

Your biggest squee moment of the year?

Tyler & Caroline getting together in the first five eps of  Vampire Diaries.

Your biggest fan anticipations for the coming year?

Season 2 of Game of Thrones
Continuation of TVD & OUAT
The River on ABC
The Hunger Games Movie
The Hobbit

I feel like the latest Bruha over at LJ may finally drive so much of fandom away that it really is time to consider abandoning it.  So, here is a practice post...  The 2011 TV Meme:

2011 TV Meme that is going around, which is rather more amusing than doing the best of lists...


Which TV shows did you start watching in 2011?

Quite a Few!

Game of Thrones - Becoming Dangerously One True Showish!  Yay
Once Upon A Time - I'm loving it.  So many great characters, though I'm mad that they killed off Graham
Secret Circle - I know this one is probably not popular, but I am shameless about it because Faye Chamberlain rules all.
Switched At Birth - Fantastic casting of both adults and kids.  I feel like these are real families.
Lying Game - I don't know why.  I just do.
Terra Nova - I still believe that it has potential. 
Falling Skies - As with Terra Nova, I still believe this has potential too.
Two Broke Girls - Sometimes this show gets really tacky.  And yet I keep coming back
Revenge - A totally fun guilty pleasure.



Which TV shows did you let go of in 2011?

Supernatural - FINALLY.  It was a painfully long time coming.
Walking Dead - The only interesting thing on it was the zombies.  And that wasn't enough. 


Which TV shows did you mean to get into but didn't in 2011? Why?

Ringer - I tried one Ep, and found it boring.
Pan Am - It just didn't engage me, though I love period drama.
Grimm - I probably could get into it, but I'm just not trying. ;)

Which TV shows do you intend on checking out in 2012?

Alcatraz
The River
Legend of Korra, if it ever finally airs!

Which TV show impressed you least in 2011?

Hell on Wheels - Just not into the "All Northern Soldiers are EVIL but all Southern Soldiers were NOBLE!" thing.  At all.
The Killing - It started out fascinating, and then became increasingly pointless until the finale just killed it.
Pretty Little Liars - I just got bored with it.
True Blood - This show is just awful.

Sorry AMC

Which TV show do you think you might let go of in 2012 unless things significantly improve?

Lying Game, Switched At Birth - Mostly because I have a history of dropping non-genre teen soap type shows.


Which TV show impressed you the most in 2011? Why?

Game of Thrones - It is a thrilling show, beautifully filmed, and superbly cast.  I totally love the Stark family, especially Sansa, Robb & Cat.  I also love Tyrion and Dany, and I am so psyched for season two to start already!!


Which TV shows do you think you'll never let go of no matter how crappy they get? Why?

Game of Thrones - See above.  I'm pretty much in love with it..
The Vampire Diaries - It's pretty bad to begin with, and I'm still here any way.  LOL


Shows I watched and loved that aren't mentioned on this list because I started them in another year


Mad Men!!!  Please come baaaaaaaack!  I miss you
Fringe - I'm not as in to it as I should be.  But for some reason, I keep trying.
Dr. Who - Sometimes there are episodes that are transcendent.  And others that are just boring.  I watch even though it feels like someone else's fandom to me.
