New Season Line-Up

Here’s my run-down (click for a trailer):

Five Characters I’ve Become Too Attached Too (TV & Movies)

This idea came from FireFerrets and Meg. I can’t think of a topic more suited for me. *gets too emotionally involved in her tv shows*

It was definetly more difficult to narrow down than I thought it would be.

Five Shows I Love, but Didn’t Expect To Originally


Castle
Yes, I once fell into the category of Bones fans who thought Castle stole their idea. I have since seen many, many differences between the two series (and a few silimarities), and came to really love Castle. Primarily because of Nathan Fillion, who manages to impress me more and more with every episode. BROWNCOATS UNITE!!!


Doctor Who
I fought so much against liking this series. It took me almost 6 months to get through the first season (I know, I just didn’t really care for Nine originally). But once I watched the first episode with Ten I let out a big sigh thinking “Well, crap. I’m doomed.” Of course, I’ve since been completely addicted.


Eureka
I had heard small things about Eureka here and there while watching Sanctuary on SyFy, but it never struck me as a series I would want to watch. I’m not much a sciencey person (with the exception of Mythbusters), so it never appealed to me. That is, until I met Fargo while watching an episode of Warehouse 13. I love me some geeky/nerdy characters, and Fargo was one I needed to know more of. Little did I know I’d become super emotionally involved in the everyday lives of these characters.


Haven
After my last Eureka marathon, I was itching for a new SyFy show. Something that was different. My friend Allison suggested I watch Haven. Figuring I was sure to find something else if I didn’t like it I gave it a shot. After all, the first season is only 10 episodes. I met the characters Nathan and Duke, and haven’t looked back since.


Veronica Mars
This may come as a surprise. I had heard rumblings of this show on various networks for about a year before ever watching it. Really, the credit for me starting this series goes to CW, they put Veronica Mars on right after Gilmore Girls (best line up EVER). One day, when my laziness was too much to overcome, I watched an episode. It was obvious that this was a show I was going to like a lot, with it’s high quality characters and girl power attitude, how could it not be?

New Obsession: Haven

This was one of those shows that when my friend Allison told me I needed to watch, I was a bit skeptical. I’m a VERY big fan of SciFi shows, particularly the ones ON SyFy, but I’m not that interested in Stephen King’s work.

Don’t get me wrong, he’s an amazing author and definitely a genius. I loved the TV interpretation of The Dead Zone, but it wasn’t one of those shows that I got pulled into. It was good, but I only ended up watching it when I happened across it. For the most part, it was a show of convenience, not one I was addicted to.

Since there wasn’t much on during the summer (save for Eureka, Warehouse 13, Suits, and Torchwood) I figured, what the heck, if I didn’t like it, then whatever, it wasn’t like I NEEDED a new show to watch.

It took me only 3 days to watch the entire first season of Haven – just in time for season 2 to start. Though I still have no plans to read the book that this is based on (I tried listening to it and it just isn’t my cup of tea, plus I’ve heard that it’s sort of a spin off of another one of his series), this series drew me in fast. Here are a couple of reasons why you should check out this amazing series.
