Day 17 - Favorite Mini Series
Dead Set Contestants filming a Big Brother-type reality show are cut off from outside contact and don't know there's a zombie apocalypse happening. Charlie Brooker wrote this with lots of subtext about human interaction and society, but, whatever, I've got seven more of these to get through. This is a great zombie story.

Day 18 - Favorite Title Sequence
X-Files Beautiful, creepy, a perfectly condensed introduction to the show. And sometimes the words at the end would change and it would make me excited/nervous because I was really into that show for years and I tend to over-analyze. See also: Battlestar Galactica, Veronica Mars, Buffy the Vampire Slayer.

Day 19 - Best Cast
Firefly In my heart of hearts, when I watch a show I want to believe that the cast get along and everyone, cast and crew, is working together because they love the show like I do. The Firefly cast looooved that show. Had the show been on the air for five years, who knows what would've happened. But the fact that they still like each other 10 years later says volumes. See also: Farscape.

Day 20 - Favorite Kiss
Breaking it down...
Favorite Bad Boy Kiss: Jack and Capt. John, Torchwood
Favorite off screen kiss: Scully and Mulder, X-Files (we were robbed!)
Favorite That's So Wrong Kiss: Buffy and Spike, Buffy the Vampire Slayer
Favorite No Way kiss: Veronica and Logan, Veronica Mars
Favorite cursed kiss: Bobby and Crowley, Supernatural
Favorite life saving kiss: Nine and Rose, Doctor Who
Favorite psychopath kiss: Beecher and Keller, Oz

Day 21 - Favorite Ship
Brideshead Revisited When I was a wee nerd girl, Charles and Sebastian were the first characters that I realized had a lot more going on than was being shown on the TV. And I really wanted to know what that was. This set the stage for a lifetime of happily pairing boy characters who obviously love each other even if the writers won't relent and let them have at it already. Also set the stage for me loving all things British.

Day 22 - Favorite Series Finale
Six Feet Under Seeing a show end properly and not just stop is practically unheard of today. Even if a show manages to avoid cancellation, often times by the end it's just a mess (I'm looking at you, Alias). Six Feet Under had its weaknesses over the years, but the finale was beautiful. The audience is shown the fate of every main character and the show went out on an artistic high. I watched the ending montage on You Tube not long ago and it still makes me cry.

Day 23 - Most Annoying Character
Kim Bauer, 24 Usually, if there's a character I dislike it's because they're poorly realized or are just a tool the writers use to move the story in a particular direction. Ladies and gentlemen, I give you Kim Bauer. She's introduced as the pissy teenage daughter of Jack Bauer, the badass CTU counter-terrorism agent who can drive from point A to point B in any city at any time in about 15 minutes, because he's some sort of wizard (dammit!!). While Jack is trying to save the world without benefit of ever taking a bathroom break(dammit!!), his whiny daughter is stupidly getting into strange vans, getting abducted and eventually being menaced by cougars. The animal kind, not the ladies of a certain age. In a few seasons, Kim is working at CTU (???) and she still manages to be a talent suck AND she does stuff that makes zero sense. She's only around to give Jack one more thing to worry about (dammit!!) while he's trying to shoot 10,000 bad guys and deal with a nasty smack addiction. I may be referencing different seasons because that shit tends to blend together. I remember the cougar, the shooting and Jack says "dammit!!" quite a bit. The point is Kim Bauer deserved to be cougar kibble and I was denied her bloody, deserved death because she was a weak writer's tool. HATE!!
