Day 1 - A show that should never have been cancelled:
Legend of the Seeker.



God, where do I start? No, wait, I know where to start: The WOMEN. Have you ever been frustrated by TV's inability to write female characters with the same level of love and respect and awesomeness that is so often lavished on the male characters without thought? Yeah, well, this show is for you. Richard may be the "lead character," but really, the most engaging storyplots and best writing are reserved for the ladies. Kahlan and Cara, both vastly different characters but they're also both so freakin' kickass. It's really quite something. Another amazing thing about it is that the fandom did not start foaming at the mouth with the introduction of Cara in s2. Usually in fandom, when a second female character is introduced, often as a so-called "opposite" or "rival" to the original female lead, the fandom wastes no time in cutting her to shreds. Instead, Cara was embraced and loved and celebrated. Yeah, that's right, a fandom that celebrates their female characters, maybe even above their male characters. That's the awesomeness that this show provided.

But, of course, said show had to be cancelled. Never mind the awesome female characters. Never mind the gorgeous setting and character-driven plot. Never mind the action sequences that make your jaw drop, or the world-building that was done. It was cancelled.

Still, the show managed to wrap up almost everything before the end. Brava.

Pretty much a recipe for disaster these days: character driven plots, strong characters(especially women) crack!tastic fun, and witty dialogue... yup... doomed to be canceled 'cause it was good. *frown*
Totally.

*sigh*

Oh, god the pretty! I can't get over it. I had a few ideas for changing my layout to, like, worship them. (But I'm currently in a Avatar: tLA mode, which, speaking of kickass women... ;)
