Day 10 - A show you thought you wouldn't like but ended up loving
Veronica Mars: Seemed too good to be true in theory, but was amazing in writing and execution. Kristin Bell did great work and we got to meet the world's best dad - Keith Mars.

Day 11 - A show that disappointed you
Bones: Went off the rails after about three seasons. I tried to hang in there but the writing went down the tubes and the show became a parody of itself. A waste of good characters and good actors.

Day 12 - An episode you've watched more than 5 times
Garth Marenghi's Darkplace: Only six episodes of this British comedy were made and I've seen them dozens of times. Darkplace is a hospital were supernatural things happen and the doctors carry guns and talk like they're in an 80's cop show. The effects are cheesy, the writing is bad and the acting is atrocious - all on purpose. It's one of those shows that grows on you and becomes brilliant. Also included in this category for me: Season three of Buffy, Series three of Blackadder, all of Mighty Boosh.

Day 13 - Favorite childhood show
Captain Kangaroo: lovely children's show about the Captain and his friends. There's the reading of books, song and dance numbers, learning about animals, the puppets Mr. Moose and Bunny Rabbit, and good life lessons. The best part is when Mr. Green Jeans shows the Captain his latest invention and Captain Kangaroo always manages to mess it up. Hee!

Day 14 - Favorite male character
Farscape's John Crichton. Ben Browder plays an American astronaut sucked through a wormhole to a distant part of the galaxy, and it's all pretty much down hill from there. The show turns the trope of the White American Male Savior on it's head because John usually has no idea what's going on, all his relationships are messy, none of his plans really work and over the course of the show he goes crazy. Still, the show is an amazingly well written drama that is also funny and poignant. Crichton never stops trying to get home, no matter what the universe throws at him. Added bonus: Crichton really rocks some leather pants!
