Hahaha, as someone that is never here anymore, I love that this is the first message I've seen in ages! Excellent choice!! :lol:

I started re-watching it again recently too. I want to say that makes it "timeless," but I think it just means I'm never gonna change :buffy: :wub:
Omfg I also have not logged in, in a long time and seeing this post absolutely cracked me up :lol: Hahah Michael, it absolutely is timeless ;)

I've started watching Parks and Rec thanks to my bf. It's so funny and I appreciate Chris Pratt waaay more now ;)

I've managed to get my wife interested in the Disney Fairies franchise as well. We're in the process of collecting all the chapter books, and we read them to each other before going to bed. <3

In the past few years I've gotten really into the A Song of Ice and Fire series, by GRR Martin. The books. I love all the complex plots, and the way he writes imagery.
I love thinking about all the subtle hints he is weaving and how they might be connected, I have lots of theories!
The tv show, not so much. I loved it at the start and then it went downhill very very quickly and I don't even want to talk about that last season :?

^ Hard same. I dropped the show midway through season 4, it's so frustrating that so many people who make screen adaptations think they can do better than source material that's already so good! Fingers crossed that Winds will be out this year; I hear he's hinted that it will be (but he's done that before, so)

We should talk about book theories sometime though!!

Currently my main fan-related love is Critical Role :) It's a ton of material to get through, but it's so worth it. The storytelling is so good that you'd never be able to tell it's improvised.

^Never read any of them, but I saw the author GRR Martin being interviewed with Stephen King and found him to be amusing and utterly respect him for how he takes his time and writes methodically.

....because that's how I am, hah.

Current shows: Supernatural (watching older ones and the final season), The Morning Show (a drama that basically parallels Matt Lauer and the Today show), Dexter (again, rewatching last two seasons...even though they're not the best).

Current book is Call of the Wild.

Current comics are all my Spidey mags. Still about a month behind....

I watch A LOT of Preston Jacob's videos and I feel like everything he puts forward is supported by the text (but maybe I'm just easily won over). I love his analysis of the Winds sample chapters too.

I've been thinking about getting into Critical Role, because I love Heroes and Halfwits, but I'm worried that the personalities won't be what I'm expecting.

^ Wait, Cab, are you into Achievement Hunter? :D I got into CR because of H&H! What kinds of things are you expecting from their personalities? :) They're definitely more serious than AH, but the story and the characters are a lot stronger imo

I am very very into AH! I started out with Rage Quit back in 2012 and I've been watching most of their stuff ever since. H&H is one of my fav things, it was just so funny! :lol:
Yeah see that's the thing I liked about H&H, the fact that they didn't take it super seriously and could be goofy with it, and the way that Frank is so great about just rolling with it and letting them do the stupidest shit. The story and characters matter less than the dynamic and tone for me.

Okay, well that's cool :) CR definitely has its silly moments (Matt is also great about letting them do pretty much whatever they want, within reason), but also 100% makes you cry sometimes. I can definitely see not being super into that

Achievement Hunter though!! I got into them through Rage Quit too! I was actually going to go see their live show this month, before it got cancelled :( Their Gmod videos have been so great, I love that they made it a regular series :D

Hmmmm, I'll add it to the list of things I need to check out some time :D

Oh wow, I love it when they get Geoff or Alfredo to play a spooky game! But omg Play Pals regularly makes my day! I still go back and watch old ones sometimes hahah. They are so creative too, it's great. :awesome:

Currently really into the tv show Humans, it's so good. Though I'm at the point where I'm getting tired of the drama and just want the characters to be happy.

I also re-watched Merlin after 6 years, which was a mistake, got right back into it again!

The Magnus Archives

I am waist-deep in this fandom. I started following the podcast in the hiatus between season four and five, and listened to all 160 episodes twice before the fifth season started airing

Speaking of, season five started yesterday and I was losing my mind. Following a horror/drama podcast as episodes air is a very different experience to consuming years' worth of content in a matter of weeks.
