I’m going to provide some questions and then answer them. You can disagree with me, but it’s my blog so my opinions go into the posts and yours go into the comments, which makes you look bad. You should get your own blog.
Backstory sucks, right? Yes, it does. (See Episodes Aye to Aye Aye Aye of Star Wars.)
Should Lost be trying to plug plot holes that only the 42 people who read everything on the internet care about? No, they shouldn’t. Nobody gives a crap who the guy was that scared Charlotte when she was a kid. Especially if it involves time travel, which I hate with a passion.
Should Jane Espenson be wasted for a stupid Galactica episode about backstory? No, she shouldn’t. Jane is a national treasure and should be only used for episodes about people and relations and funny things. I’m sorry for your injury, Sam, but nobody gives a crap what the Cylons did three thousand years ago.
Why are you watching Heroes when it sucks so hard? I have no answer to this one. I’m trying to quit. I keep asking LWC after every episode why we’re still watching. I suppose I want it to return to its former glory, except that I’m having trouble remembering how that was.
Why do they put genre shows on networks? This is a rhetorical question for which I have no answer. Dollhouse premiered with “only” 4.7 million viewers. That many viewers would make Ronald D. Moore pee his pants. For joy, I mean. Why don’t they put shows like Daisies, Terminator, and Dollhouse on USA or FX? Oh hell, that’s another question.
Why don’t they put shows like Daisies, Terminator, and Dollhouse on USA or FX? I don’t know why they don’t. Is it possible that the same show on a cable network automatically gets one-half the viewers? Are there that many homes that don’t have cable? Isn’t this the twenty-first century? (That would be Ex Ex Aye for George Lucas and Roger Goodell and other fans of the Roman Empire and their advanced mathematics.)
Why didn’t I make this a bunch of different blog posts and fill up the rest of this week? Jesus H. Christ, I wish I had thought of this question first! Gods dammit.
