My first reaction when I heard about the VM movie was "No, no, no". But then, as the news settled in, I started thinking that there's probably not a way for them to screw it up any worse than season 3 and I settled down into calm acceptance.
Then today came the thought that actually made me happy about this (and may even make me donate): RENEWED INTEREST COULD MEAN SEASON 1 ON BLU-RAY. Even if this movie sucks to high heaven, if it gets me season 1 on Blu-Ray, I will love it forever.
I have to say, though, that the backlash of "how can you spend money on something so frivolous when you could donate it to charity" is beyond ridiculous. Like seriously? THAT'S your argument? Because pretty much every single person in the entire world is guilty of buying things that are not a) shelter, b) food, c) clothes, which means it's now you against the world (except you're probably guilty of it too, so HELLO, hypocrite!).
Also, I love this fandom a whole hell of a lot, even if the show did crash and burn, so seeing all the old faces again has been wonderful.
In other news, the exclusion of older fandoms has made my interest in Fandom March Madness fall to practically nothing. You know, there's a reason why those fandoms are still powerhouses after all these years - we have years of investment in them, unlike, say, 17 episodes of Joan Watson (who I'll still be voting for until the end).
I'm currently marathoning Parenthood, which is good, but not really revolutionary television watching. It's comforting background noise, though.
As for current shows, I'm loving this season of Lost Girl, I'm so happy the right person won Top Chef, The Americans continues to fascinate me every week, and even though it's only been a couple of weeks, I am so ready for Elementary to return (which I just realized it does tonight, so YAY).
