For due South?

From: [identity profile] potentiality-26.livejournal.com
My all-time ultimate fave character: Ray K
A character I didn't used to like but now do: The first episodes of Due South I watched had Ray K, so when I went back at watched the earlier episodes it took Ray V a while to grow on me
A character I used to like but now don't: Can't think of one!
A character I'm indifferent about: Stella
A character who deserved better: I like Frannie, but I wish Elaine had stuck around
A ship I've never been able to get into: Fraser/Thatcher
A ship I've never been able to get over: Fraser/Ray K
A cute, low-key ship: I just came up with it but I like the idea of Frannie/Elaine
An unpopular ship but I still enjoyed it: Can't think of one!
A ship that was totally wrong and never should have happened: Fraser/Thatcher. The show never really went for it, thankfully, but I didn't dig what little there was
My favourite storyline/moment: I really liked how they handled the transition between Rays- and the ending was lovely!
A storyline that never should have been written: Hmmm... I thought some of the Ray/Stella was a bit awkward. Not horrible, so just not that great
My first thoughts on the show: This show is so nice!
My thoughts now: Yeah, it's really nice

This makes my dS-loving heart so happy, and is so much like what answers I would have given if I'd been the one answering for dS for this meme! (Especially the so yes Fraser/RayK and the no no NOOOOO Fraser/Thatcher.)

Fair warning, I haven't watched this show since S2, so my thoughts are probably outdated as heck. (Why I stopped should be pretty obvious from my answers lol)

My all-time ultimate fave character: Rumplestiltskin
A character I didn't used to like but now do: I learned to like Regina a lot
A character I used to like but now don't: Snow or Charming. I've never strongly disliked them, but I definitely grew to like them less and less
A character I'm indifferent about: Henry
A character who deserved better: I know why Jefferson couldn't come back, but I really wanted him to come back, I wish Ruby had gotten more screen time
A ship I've never been able to get into: Emma/Hook
A ship I've never been able to get over: Belle/Rumplestiltskin
A cute, low-key ship: Aurora/Mulan (I like Aurora/Mulan/Philip too)
An unpopular ship but I still enjoyed it: Marco/Archie was never really a common ship, but I liked it
A ship that was totally wrong and never should have happened: Again, I don't care for Emma/Hook at all
My favourite storyline/moment: Skin Deep
A storyline that never should have been written: From about halfway through S2 I think everything pretty much started to go downhill in terms of the stuff I cared about
My first thoughts on the show: This is a really cool premise but I'm not sure about the execution
My thoughts now: Kinda glad I quit watching when I did

From: [identity profile] daria234.livejournal.com
I'm still watching, but you're probably right to have stopped watching lol

Aurora/Mulan is adorable

I wish Ruby got to do more too. She had a couple good eps recently - you don't need to know the season to watch them since they were semi-standalone.

I think Regina did get way better over time.

I might check those eps out if I get the chance :)

Doctor Who

Date: 2017-03-05 04:10 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] potentiality-26.livejournal.com
I haven't seen the last couple seasons of this show, just so you know.

My all-time ultimate fave character: I think Martha is my favorite companion, Eight is my favorite doctor
A character I didn't used to like but now do: I actually didn't like Donna that much when she was first introduced? I learned to love her, though
A character I used to like but now don't: Torchwood made me like Jack Harkness less than I did on Doctor Who, but I don't hate him or anything
A character I'm indifferent about: Clara, since I've seen so few of her episodes
A character who deserved better: Eight deserved a show
A ship I've never been able to get into: Mickey/Martha. I could have liked it if they'd actually developed it, but it seemed like they just got randomly shoved together
A ship I've never been able to get over: Amy/Rory. I thought it was just going to be Rose and Mickey all over again, but I thought it ended up really beautiful
A cute, low-key ship: Nine/Jack/Rose
An unpopular ship but I still enjoyed it: I always shipped The Doctor with Ianto. It's not much a thing so it's not popular, but I liked the idea
A ship that was totally wrong and never should have happened: Uh... Can't think of anything?
My favourite storyline/moment: I really loved Jack's introductory episode
A storyline that never should have been written: Can't think of one.
My first thoughts on the show: A bit hard to follow but I like it
My thoughts now: I need to get caught up but I keep forgetting

Star Trek

It's up to you whether you want to answer this for the fandom as a whole or for your favourite show.

I'll do this for Voyager and Deep Space Nine, since they're my two favorites :)

My all-time ultimate fave character: Janeway, Jadzia
A character I didn't used to like but now do: Ezri
A character I used to like but now don't: I don't know, Janeway's Fair Haven boyfriend was interesting at first but he got annoying
A character I'm indifferent about: Quark
A character who deserved better: Seven of Nine. She had some really good episodes but I could have lived without the whole "romance is part of being human!!!" thing they pushed her character into
A ship I've never been able to get into: Ezri/Bashir. It just seemed... awkward to me what with Jadzia never liking him and all
A ship I've never been able to get over: Janeway/Chakotay, Garak/Bashir
A cute, low-key ship: Kira/Odo. It got kind of tragic sometimes, but when it was cute it was really cute
An unpopular ship but I still enjoyed it: I think if Seven had to end up with someone it should have been the doctor, but I don't think that's actually too unpopular an opinion
A ship that was totally wrong and never should have happened: Seven/Chakotay
My favourite storyline/moment: In general I really loved all the long term Dominion War storylines on DS9
A storyline that never should have been written: You know that one Voyager episode where Seven accuses a guy of messing with her implants and it's like an assault allegory except that she's in the wrong apparently and it's really awkward? That was such a bad episode
My first thoughts on the show: I honestly can't tell you because I first watched them when I was pretty young
My thoughts now: I still love them!

I’m glad you did Voyager. I was going to ask for Voyager at first, but in the end I didn’t dare because opinions on the show vary a lot and I prefer to ignore that there are people out there who don’t think that Voyager is one of the best Star Trek shows ever. ;)

But it looks like I had no reason to worry:

My all-time ultimate fave character: Janeway
A ship I've never been able to get over: Janeway/Chakotay
An unpopular ship but I still enjoyed it: I think if Seven had to end up with someone it should have been the doctor
A ship that was totally wrong and never should have happened: Seven/Chakotay


I couldn’t agree more!

DS9 is my second favourite Star Trek show and the Dominion War storyline is the reason why. There are just so many good episodes that are part of that stotyline.

I love Voyager to bits! There are some things that bug me about it (mainly the whole Seven/Chakotay thing because whyyy) but it's still my favorite Trek :)

Date: 2017-03-07 05:11 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] icecream-junkie.livejournal.com
Yeah, they started pushing that ship all of a sudden, even though these characters didn’t really have chemistry before. Chakotay always seemed to have more chemistry with Janeway and while I don’t necessarily mind that J/C never happened on the show, I don’t understand why Chakotay/Seven ended up being canon. Seven and the holodoc would have made sense. They had a great chemistry right from the start, but Chakotay/Seven felt forced.

I treated myself to the Voyager DVDs back in the Fall. I'm really looking forward to watching the show again. Unfortunatley, I can't seem to find the time. Too many shows to watch, too little time, as usual. ;)

Date: 2017-03-07 05:41 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] potentiality-26.livejournal.com
Yeah- as much as I would have liked Chakotay and Janeway to end up together, I would have been fine with things remaining ambiguous between them too. It's just that putting him with Seven came out of nowhere.

I rewatched about a year ago and really enjoyed it- but you're right, often there never seems to be enough time!

It's been a looooong since I saw Smallville last. Also my main love was for the first few seasons and I never did see some of the later ones, so my answers will reflect that.

My all-time ultimate fave character: Lex
A character I didn't used to like but now do: I kind of disliked Chloe early on but she grew on me
A character I used to like but now don't: Jason, maybe? I had stopped watching for a while after S3 but came back for Jensen Ackles, but Jason got weird
A character I'm indifferent about: Clark a lot of the time
A character who deserved better: Lex? I mean, it's a Superman prequel, I don't what I expected, but I just liked him so much and I didn't want him to be a bad guy
A ship I've never been able to get into: Clark/Lana
A ship I've never been able to get over: Clark/Lex
A cute, low-key ship: Was Chloe/Pete ever a thing? That would have been cute
An unpopular ship but I still enjoyed it: Not sure how popular Lex/Lana was since I was never into it enough to read fanfiction, but I did like them together
A ship that was totally wrong and never should have happened: I could have lived without all the one-sided Chloe/Clark stuff
My favourite storyline/moment: I really liked the first couple of seasons, I don't remember anything specific though
A storyline that never should have been written: Could Clark and Lex just have stayed friends instead?
My first thoughts on the show: This show makes me so happy, but I'm probably going to end up sad if I get attached to Lex
My thoughts now: I got attached and I ended up sad

I think Chloe/Clark could have been cute if it were more mutual, but the onesided thing made me sad.

Lex and Clark/Lex were amazing. Especially the first couple seasons.

Date: 2017-03-05 06:35 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] potentiality-26.livejournal.com
Yeah, it could have been really cute if it was more mutual.

There's definitely a reason future fics that just ignored what was coming were so popular in the early days!

Stargate SG-1 and Torchwwod :)

Stargate SG-1

My all-time ultimate fave character: Daniel
A character I didn't used to like but now do: I had the typical "ugh a Daniel replacement" reaction to Jonas, but I grew to love him to bits
A character I used to like but now don't: Possibly an unpopular opinion, but I liked the original Weir on SG-1 better than Tori Higginson's version
A character I'm indifferent about: General Landry
A character who deserved better: Sha're? Also they made some questionable choices with Vala
A ship I've never been able to get into: Sam/Jack
A ship I've never been able to get over: Daniel/Teal'c
A cute, low-key ship: Sam/Vala
An unpopular ship but I still enjoyed it: See Daniel/Teal'c up there lol? I shipped Daniel with pretty much everyone (but specially Teal'c and Cam Mitchell), and Jack/Daniel seems to be the only ship anyone cared about. I like Jack/Daniel fine, but it's not my favorite
A ship that was totally wrong and never should have happened: Yeah I'm still on Sam/Jack. I'll never not be annoyed by the fact that they did a whole episode specifically to say that pining after Jack wasn't making her happy and they were putting it to bed once and for all- and before that season was even over it had popped back up again. Ugh
My favourite storyline/moment: I really loved the episodes where Daniel is ascended and he shows up to help the team anyway; I think The Changeling is probably my favorite episode period
A storyline that never should have been written: I can't really think of one
My first thoughts on the show: I like this but not as much at Atlantis (I didn't start watching either until they were off the air, and I saw Atlantis first)
My thoughts now: I love this show!

I liked Jonas right from the beginning XD

A ship I've never been able to get into: Sam/Jack
This.

I like Daniel/Teal'c, too, and I wish it was more popular. (But I ship Teal'c with a lot of people in general: Sam, Daniel, Cam...)

Date: 2017-03-21 08:14 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] potentiality-26.livejournal.com
I ship Teal'c with a lot of people too- his relationships with all the members of the team were just so meaningful.

Torchwood

My all-time ultimate fave character: Ianto
A character I didn't used to like but now do: Owen definitely grew on me toward the end
A character I used to like but now don't: Some corners of this fandom made me dislike Jack, but he's still close to my heart
A character I'm indifferent about: Uh... Rhys?
A character who deserved better: Tosh
A ship I've never been able to get into: Owen/Tosh. Even when I liked Owen I still thought Tosh deserved better
A ship I've never been able to get over: Jack/Ianto
A cute, low-key ship: Jack/Real Jack
An unpopular ship but I still enjoyed it: Ianto/John Hart
A ship that was totally wrong and never should have happened: Was the Jack/Gwen UST really necessary, because I did not dig it
My favourite storyline/moment: Captain Jack Harkness, that episode still gets me
A storyline that never should have been written: There were some good things about Children of the Earth, but I really wish we had gotten a regular third season, maybe bringing Mickey and Martha into team Torchwood
My first thoughts on the show: I love this show; it's weird and wonderful and no one is apparently straight
My thoughts now: I'm upset about how much this show hurt me, but there are some good memories anyway

Date: 2017-03-21 07:43 pm (UTC)

A character who deserved better: Tosh
This. SO much.

A ship that was totally wrong and never should have happened: Was the Jack/Gwen UST really necessary, because I did not dig it
Same.

"Captain Jack Harkness" will always be my favourite episode from the whole show, I think.

maybe bringing Mickey and Martha into team Torchwood
I've never thought about it, but it's a great idea :)

From: [identity profile] potentiality-26.livejournal.com
As I remember it, Torchwood S2 had ended and Jack appeared on an episode of DW where Mickey and Martha were dropped off together and Jack followed them and started talking about Torchwood and stuff- so a lot of people genuinely believed that they would show up in S3. I'll always regret that missed opportunity.

Buffy the Vampire Slayer.

Date: 2017-03-06 09:57 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] potentiality-26.livejournal.com
Okay, so I haven't watched all of this show, just some episodes here and there, so my answers will reflect that

My all-time ultimate fave character: Giles
A character I didn't used to like but now do: I liked Spike more on Angel than I ever did on Buffy
A character I used to like but now don't: Can't think of one
A character I'm indifferent about: Xander
A character who deserved better: Tara
A ship I've never been able to get into: Buffy/Spike
A ship I've never been able to get over: Buffy/Faith
A cute, low-key ship: Willow/Tara
An unpopular ship but I still enjoyed it: I confess, Buffy/Giles does it for me
A ship that was totally wrong and never should have happened: Buffy/Spike was a bit... ugh
My favourite storyline/moment: I really liked Once More With Feeling
A storyline that never should have been written: Can't really think of anything specific
My first thoughts on the show: I like this premise a lot
My thoughts now: I like Angel a bit better (I almost always favor spin-offs for some reason), but it's still a good show
