What A Day...  
Yesterday was awfully disappointing, on a number of fannish levels. *sighs* I'm trying to move on, but it's going to take awhile.

The LOLcats were a big help (thank goodness for those feeds into LJ!) I could summarize a lot of them as, "How did you get yourself in there?" It's always the 'how,' because with cats there's no point in wondering 'why.' They're curious, and then *voila*! It's already happened.

I got Tigger to bite her own tail a couple of times last night during my torturous TV-watching session. Though maybe she was trying to bite me, for obvious reasons. ;)

We finished watching The Tick, and it's hard to let go. Only 9 episodes! Why was that show not more loved? :(

Randomly, we also saw another installment of the "Inspector Lynley Series" on PBS. It's on, and then we get sucked into it:

HalfshellHusband: Why does that actor look so familiar? What have we seen him in before?
Me: I don't think he IS familiar. He just looks like Lou Diamond Phillips.

I loved The Tick! I don't see why they changed American Maid's name, though...and "Bat Manuel" always makes me laugh. It was a fun show that should have gotten more appreciation than it did. I've always wondered what might have happened if it had been on Fox during its peak experimental years, back when they gave odd shows a chance to try and gain an audience before they cut them off after a few episodes, you know?

She seemed to be a licensed character that they didn't have permission to use, so they changed the name.

And "Bat Manuel"-- nobody every forgets him!

back when they gave odd shows a chance to try and gain an audience before they cut them off after a few episodes, you know?
This could be said of SO much television. I ache for those quirky shows that got nipped "in the bud" because of the impatience of attracting an audience.

And when you mix that with the behavior of "jerk the show around and change its day and time all season long, oh hey, nobody's watching this-- let's cancel it", a person could easily be driven nuts!

:D Well, I'll be writing the Prison Break stuff as long as I can but I don't think I can stand to watch anymore. Last night was just awful, and I was even prepared for somewhat-awful.

The other thing you can email me about offline. I won't be leaving any fandoms over it, but it was kind of unexpectedly heartbreaking.
