frayadjacent: Buffy from Get it Done, looking wise and serene (BtVS: self-aware Buffy)
Restarting a meme from...January (!) to help me get back in the habit of posting.

Day 11 - A show that disappointed you:
Oh this is maybe why I stopped this meme! I dunno, the world is shitty right now and I don't feel like knocking anyone's fandom. So I'll just say that Doctor Who fans are my favorite part of the show.

Day 12 - An episode you've watched more than 5 times:
Lol, most of Buffy. Like seriously intently watched, and within the last 6 years. /o\ The episode I've watched the most is probably "Once More, With Feeling". I still love it so, but I had to back off because the impact was starting to wear off. It's beautiful, it's funny, it makes me cry. Especially when Buffy sings, "well that depends/ on if they let you go". Shit. Shit shit shit. Now I'm all full of love and sorrow for my girl.

Also, I used to listen to the soundtrack (along with my "Buffy playlist", which is what I called it before I knew that fanmixes were a thing, and which by the way sparked my first vid ideas) while bicycling to and from work on the Burke-Gilman trail. So now I associate specific songs with specific parts of the commute. E.g., "I'll Never Tell" immediately makes me think of riding in the dark and cold of a winter evening under the Aurora Bridge and around the corner past Theo's chocolate factory. I always skipped "Rest in Peace", which is the only song on the soundtrack I dislike.

(In case you're wondering, I listened with only one earbud and, um, usually took it out when I was riding on streets with cars. Usually.)

I'm trying to think if there are any non-Buffy episodes I've watched more than five times. Possibly some X-Files or Star Trek: Voyager episodes, because I had a few on tape so I probably rewatched them a bunch, but that was so long ago I don't remember them well. Maybe a few episodes of the US version of The Office, because Mr. Adjacent cycles through sitcoms while he cooks -- which is most of the time -- and there are few I can't resist. Mainly "Boys and Girls", "The Dundies", "Duwali", that beach party one. I like when everyone goes somewhere else together.

Day 05 - A show you hate:

I was about to write how I never watch more than a few episodes of a show if I don't enjoy it, but it's not really fair to say I hate something if I haven't seen that much of it.  Or, more likely, I won't even watch one episode of the shows I'm pretty sure I'd hate, but then it's really not reasonable to say I hate them.

But then I realized: I've seen most of How I Met Your Mother.  And I kinda hate it.  No amount of Robin Scherbatsky in the world will be enough to stop my bitterness at giving hours and hours to this show when I could have been discovering Parks and Recreation working on my dissertation.

Elementary -- through 2x09 )

Person of Interest -- through 3x09 )

Agents of SHIELD -- no spoilers )

Once Upon a Time -- through 3x08 )

Doctor Who -- through the 50th Anniversary special )

I also watched S6 of 30 Rock on Netflix, and liked it a lot more than I thought I would. I stopped watching at the end of S5 because I thought the show had seriously degraded in quality. Now I'm not sure if it improved again in S6 or if my expectations just went down, what with the early seasons fading to a distant memory. I was particularly enjoying Jenna, and especially Jenna/Paul. They're a fabulous couple and so much fun to watch.

In the future: I kinda want to check out Northern Exposure? It's in that fuzzy realm of shows I saw sometimes as a kid, as my dad regularly watched it. Sometimes I wonder if I'd enjoy it as an adult. Also, after four years of badgering, Mr. Adjacent finally agreed to re-watch Buffy with me. At which point I immediately decided I wanted to watch something else...
