Eh...meme that I've developed from a useless entertainment mag that I picked up to determine what tv shows were popping up this Spring. (Mainly because it's impossible to figure out which shows are appealing and to keep track of anymore. The entertainment mag did not help. Although "The Son" miniseries on AMC looks promising. Assuming I remember when it is on.)
Called "My Obsessions" Meme or the Impossible Monday Meme...because I have tendency to create memes that I can't answer the questions to, without thinking, wait, do I really share this information with folks? Let's ponder this for a moment...or I have no clue how I'd answer that question, what was I thinking.
* My current favorite or must watch show?
This changes a lot. I'm moody. Here's the one's I tend to watch live and miss when they aren't on:
Lucifier, Grey's Anatomy, This is Us, the Expanse, Game of Thrones, Nashville...
(If I'm honest the only show I watch daily is General Hospital, usually while eating dinner. Embarrassingly true. Then discuss it with my 74 year old mother over the phone each night. Hey it beats discussing politics or the weather.)
* The first thing I watch when I wake up?
NY1 for the Rail and Road Report and the Weather (I need to know the temperature outside, there's no way of knowing until I leave the apt building, which takes ten-fifteen minutes.)
* The show that always makes me laugh?
Big Bang Theory, well for the most part. Sometimes Lucifier. No really.
* What I eat while watching?
Pistachios, apples dipped in nutbutter or chocolate, fruit, and dinner (often eat and make it while watching General Hospital). I eat meals in front of the tv.
* My current favorite book genre?
historical romance novels...sigh. What can I say, cotton candy and chocolate mousse for the mind.
* My dream tv series that has not been created and cast and is not based on any book, play, etc?
Hmmm...I really need to learn how to create memes that I can actually answer the questions to.
A series that contains the following cast - James Marsters, Anthony Stewart Head, Katee Sackoff, Jamie Bamber, Idris Elba, Dominic West, Tom Ellis, Tom Hiddleston, Benedict Cumberbatch, Kate Beckinsale, Jennifer Lawrence, Kerry Washington, Sandra Oh, Chandra Wilson, Patrick Stewart, Ian McKellan, Alexandra Skarsgard, Lena Headly, Peter Dinklater....and Christian Bale.
Epic, gender bending sci-fantasy adventure anthology series that deals with the settlement of another planet. Each series of episodes would feature on a different aspect of that process - from exploration to settlement. Sort of like Kim Stanely Robinson's, Edgar Rice Burroughs, Ray Bradbury, Anne McCaffrey, and Issac Asimov's series on this topic. Writers would be John Scalzi, Joss Whedon, Damon Lindenoff, Drew Goddard, Kate Atkinson, Vince Gilligan, Shondra Rhimes, Jane Espenson, Ron Moore, the Kings (Good Wife fame), with direction by Ridely Scott, Benjamin Bratt, (the woman who directed the Hurt Locker whose name I've forgotten or spaced).
OR...an alternate history epic about the founding of Europe by people living in North America and Asia, written by the guy who did Hamiliton the musical, along with bits written by Stephen King, Ken Burns, Doris Kearns Goodwin, etc. And White Europeans are the enslaved natives. Just subvert everything.
* My dream book adaptation into a television series or book I really want a television adaptation of, whichever makes the most sense.
Chronicles of Lymond (starring Tom Hiddleston, Christian Bale, Anthony Stewart Head, Hugh Dancy,Alexander Siddiq, Clair Foy, (the actress who played Victoria whose name I keep forgetting), Lena Hedley, Peter Dinklage, Kate Beckinsale, Michelle Dockery...and Hugh Laurie) or The Sparrow by Maria Doria Russell with Peter Dinklater, Alexander Siddig, Jennifer Lawrence, Archie Panjab...and Christian Bale. No clue who should do the adaptation though. You'd need a really good writer for the Lymond Series...maybe the same team that did Game of Thrones. And Maria Doria Russell could pair up with Ron Moore for The Sparrow.
* My dream television into movie adaptation.
Again I really need to develop memes that I can answer the questions to...
Drawing a blank on this one. I think a live action version of Battle of the Planets could actually be sort of cool.
* The show I miss the most and wish they'd revive somehow...
Buffy, although not sure it's possible to revive it.
* The funniest person on television
Mayim Balik's Amy on Big Bang Theory
* My dream movie into book series adaptation?
They aren't good at this sort of thing or so I've discovered, having tried both the Star Wars and Star Trek novels.
* My dream book into movie adaptation?
The Sparrow by Maria Doria Russell or Grass by Sherri Teppar...both would be incredibly scary though, so ahem, maybe not?
* My guilty pleasure :
a. Television show: General Hospital
b. Book Series: Historical/smutty Contemporary Romance novels (see above)
c. Movie Series: Marvel Comics Adaptations...
