I have too much work to do and I need distractions to keep me sane.  So you are getting a meme, swiped from [ profile] sci_fi_shipper .

Pick your five favourite tv shows (in no particular order) and answer the following questions about them. don't cheat!

1. Buffy
2. Firefly
3. Battlestar Galactica
4. Community
5. Doctor Who

Who is your favorite character in 2?
ZOE. Also Mal. And Wash. And all of them.

Who is your least favorite character in 1?
Of those who have been in the opening credits…probably Anya. Which is weird, because a lot of people really love her. A lot. Most of my rl friends who love BtVS consider Anya their favorite character. And I like her well enough…but I just don't love her as much as I love most of the others.

What's your favorite episode of 4?

What is your favorite ship in 3?
HAHAHAHA. You all know the answer. (That's Kara/Lee to the uninitiated)

Who is your anti-ship in 2?
Uh…I'm not opposed to any of the canon ships, although I'm also not particularly fannish about Mal/Inara. I don't not want them to get together though.  Of ships I've seen in fanfiction, I'd have to say my anti-ship is Jayne/River.

How long have you watched 1?

It's been a little over 10 years, I think?  Something like that.

How did you become interested in 3?
Um, I'd seen it mentioned around the 'net. I'd watched 33 because my then-boyfriend wanted me to. And I thought it looked good but I was lazy. At some point around the time season 3 was airing (or maybe just after?) my sister got me to sit down and watch the miniseries and from then on I was hooked.

Who is your favorite actor in 4?
Donald Glover. (Except I'm slightly afraid that he's a sexist jackass in real life, which is why I don't want to read interviews or listen to his music)(I just want to appreciate his marvelous acting)

Which show do you prefer: 1, 2, or 5?
This is a cruel question. I think maybe Buffy. Or Firefly. Honestly, I can never decide between these.

Which show have you seen more episodes of: 1 or 3?

Buffy because it had more episodes than BSG.

If you could be anyone from 4, who would you be?
Probably Troy, so I could be BFFs with Abed and we could watch Farscape and Firefly together.  I don't know if it would be worth sacrificing my intellect though.

How would you kill off your favorite character in 1?
Well, Joss did it twice in canon…so I'll just leave it to the master.

Give a random quote from 1.
"To read makes our speaking English good." Truer words were never spoken.

Would a 3/4 crossover work?
Totally. Okay, I don't actually know how…I think it would have to start with Troy and Abed in the Community 'verse and somehow…okay, yeah, I have no idea but I would absolutely read it and love it and be grateful that it existed.

Pair two characters in 1 that would make an unlikely, but strangely okay couple.
Define "unlikely" because I always kinda liked Buffy/Faith as well as Faith/Spike, but I don't know if the fandom would consider them unlikely. Especially the former, as we have all seen season 3.

Has 5 inspired you in any way?
Uh…it's inspired a few angry feminist rants, as well as a lot of squeeing to counter that. I wish I could say it was my fitspiration (running!) but I haven't taken up running…or any sort of exercise…so not really. It's also inspired me to write crossovers I suppose, as it's pretty much the ideal fandom for crossovers.

Over all, which show has a better cast, 3 or 5?

BSG, although DW has had some terrific actors. I think BSG has more consistently good acting. Although Doctor Who also has Christopher Eccleston, who is AWESOME.  (Don't kill me flist, but I'm not a huge Tennant fan; for the most part I enjoy his run as the Doctor, but those specials just KILLED ME and not in a good way) (Though this is tempered with my almost pavlovian inability to watch EJO in most of the fourth season)

Which has better theme music, 2 or 4?
While I like both, YOU CAN'T TAKE THE SKY FROM MEEEEE (which is to say, Firefly theme owns my heart). I'm gonna go listen to it right now.

Oh, gosh. I never liked Anya! Didn't she start out as a rat? No, no that was that other girl. Either way, Anya just was never funny to me and kind of annoying. I tolerated her because I wanted Xander to have someone but well, she was no Cordelia. And I didn't like Cordelia much on Buffy. But she had more personality than Anya.

"To read makes our speaking English good." Truer words were never spoken.

Christopher Eccleston, who is AWESOME.
And he's hot. The man can work black leather. And I have never even seen a single episode with him in it. But I know hotness when I see it, yes I do.

Fun meme but your answers were even more fun. :-)

No, the rat was Amy. I like Anya--I generally think she's funny, and she has some episodes that I love, especially in seasons 6 and 7, but she's so far from being my favorite.

Hee, yaaaaaay Christopher Eccleston! I don't even find him physically attractive, really. But he's so talented!

Great meme and great answers! I'll probably steal it again because I also need some distraction.

I think both Buffy/Faith and Faith/Spike are not that unlikely as far as non-canon pairings go - I've certainly come across both several times.
And I do love Anya. I think she was underused, but then I have issues with most of the BtVS characters so that's a minor complaint.

Yeah, I know Buffy/Faith in particular is popular, and Faith/Spike is one of those that just...fits. You know. Plus there's that scene in "Who Are You?" so it's almost-kinda-psuedo canon.

Hee! I'm enjoying watching this meme go around. I've never seen Community but I love all the other shows you mentioned. Very nice choice on the Buffy quote; there are so many great ones. I'm trying to think which ones I find myself using in random life situations... "Your logic does not resemble our Earth logic" for one, and also "Well, yeah, if you're gonna use wisdom." My husband is fond of, "But I've been dead. And frugal." :)

Hee, I use "That's insane troll logic." Also "you're certainly the font of nothing." And plenty others that are eluding me right now.
