Day 28 – First TV show obsession:



Sure I watched TV before, but never with such passion or addiction, and never with an accompanying  involvement in fandom.  I first caught glimpses of it during season 7 (and it's really funny remembering my reactions then, when I didn't know what was going on much of the time), but then I went back and marathoned it from the beginning (the first time I had done something like that) thanks to the wonderful (and now long gone) Hollywood Video, which had seasons 1-5 of BTVS complete, and for so cheap to rent.  I really raced through it, and I can remember for instance watching 12 episodes of season 2 in one epic weekend with a visiting friend who I sucked into the show alongside me...(the first of many times I'd do such a thing).

It was also as I said the first TV show that had me going online seeking out websites and fandom for it.  I ended up spoiling myself a lot this way, reading stuff before I had seen the epps, but I also ended up discovering Buffyforums (BF), which is still one of my favorite internet hangouts (even though I don't really talk about BTVS there much anymore), and the source of many good online friends.  BF then not only led me to LJ, but also got me to watch so many other TV shows, and the rest is history...;)  But BTVS was the first, and while I don't really feel all that obsessed with it anymore, I'll always be glad I gave it a chance and got into it.

Also I finally caught up with DW late last night!  And just in time for the start of my fall shows tonight, with the VD season 2 premiere...more on both later.

LOLOL. I can just HEAR Giles's voice (re: your lj cut text). EPIC.

OMG. HOLLYWOOD VIDEO. I REMEMBER THAT PLACE!
sherrilina: Cordy/Angel (Angel)sherrilina on September 10th, 2010 04:22 am (UTC)
Oh yay I forgot you watched it too! :D (I mean, I feel like almost everyone has who is involved online in fandom, but I always find myself encountering people who haven't, and I forget who's who!) But yeah, Giles did the spiel best...

AND YES! :( WASN'T IT AWESOME?! They had the BEST coupons there (like 3 DVDs for 99 cents each renting, and you'd get 3 of these coupons, and you'd get a coupon for any DVD trade-in for $8 worth store credit, and I traded in this stupid $2 DVD my dad had gotten once and forgotten about, and thus basically won $6! :D), and SUCH a good TV DVD collection, I also saw season 1 and half of season 2 of Alias through it, until I decided to stop that and watch some shows still on the air (and thus marathoned Bones season 1 on iTunes before season 2 began...and the rest is history! ;)).

Was there one in Silver Spring?
Jenniferhmsharmony on September 10th, 2010 04:25 am (UTC)
I think there was one near where Silver Spring and Olney meet, but I'm not positive...

Heh. Most of us old timers on BF don't actually talk about BtVS there any more!
sherrilina: Cordy/Angel (Angel)sherrilina on September 10th, 2010 05:26 am (UTC)
Well exactly, as I said! ;) Unless like Francy they randomly rewatch it and get back into it that is...:p

But BTVS is good for bringing us all together there in the first place. :D

Yay for BTVS!!!!! :D I divide my life in before-Buffy and after-Buffy... not sure what it says about me!! :D

But just like you, Buffy was what made me venture on the Internet, discover sites, forum, fandoms, shipping, downloading..a whole new world! :)
sherrilina: Cordy/Angel (Angel)sherrilina on September 10th, 2010 03:19 pm (UTC)
Lol, I could probably do the same life division...;). It also amounts to "before BF/after BF" and "Before I watched a gazillion live TV shows/After I began to do so"...

And fancy seeing you around LJ! :D. Nice icon, I actually don't have a BTVS specific one, so this ATS one has to represent the whole Buffyverse for me here.

Thanks! I didn't make it... I don't know who did, it's been on my HD forever!

You know, I like LJ, but I'm not fandom-active, so I rarely use it!
sherrilina: Arthur/Chicken (Merlin)sherrilina on September 10th, 2010 03:34 pm (UTC)
Oh ready for Merlin this Saturday I see? ;)

Heh well I just thought it was funny that you commented here just after I had mentioned you in my reply to Jo above yours! :p. But yeah, I feel LJ is mostly for being active in fandom, though some just use it to talk about their lives all the time...
francy_m79: merlin-leaffrancy_m79 on September 10th, 2010 03:49 pm (UTC)
Sixth sense? ;)
I'm trying to come here more often, lately!

Oh, does Merlin start THIS saturday? As in tomorrow? :D
sherrilina: Arthur/Morgana 2 (Merlin)sherrilina on September 10th, 2010 05:13 pm (UTC)
Yep, Merlin begins tomorrow, so I hear! I think I recall it being on the BBC website too...have you seen any of the promos/descriptions? It certainly sounds intriguing...
