Day 04 - Your favourite show ever.

This actually took some thinking about, as there are many shows I love and have watched and rewatched and re-rewatched and . . . You get the picture. However, in the end I went for (no prizes for guessing correctly) . . . NCIS.

I have opted for this because whilst it is true it hasn't been the show I fell in love with since the end of Season Two, nonetheless it is still a wonderful show and one I, despite everything, enjoy and am obsessed with.

It's a show about which I have written 800 stories, various essays, other meta, episode reviews, made icons, photo manips and lots of other graphics. This is far more than any other fandom I have been/am still involved with - by a considerable way.

The plots have, sadly, deteriorated over the years, and it seems that more and more then forget what the 'N' stands for. However, I still love the characters and their interaction and it still is my favourite show - despite me wishing that it would go off air. I know, weird, but there you go. I do have a 'Thinky-Thoughts on NCIS' post half finished, so I won't babble any more here, I'll save that 'pleasure' *g* for later.

To remain my favourite show despite the 'downhill slide' shows just what a good show it is.

I know exactly what you mean and I feel the same way about it. It would have been better to end the show with a bang (a positive one) than to struggle with all those crude storylines.

I'm so glad you know what I mean.

Indeed it would have done. I hate it when shows stagger on when they could have gone out on a high. Maybe S8 will be stellar?

We can only hope it'll be. :D

Well you know my feelings on the matter! I'm looking forward to your 'thinky thoughts' post :)

I think it'll struggle to match this year's viewing figures next year - S7 was a mess & it seems like Criminal Minds is the show getting big syndication re-runs this year from what someone on TWOP said. I believe CM is lauching a spin-off this year also.

I desperately hope they take a good long look at why ratings dropped off at the end of the year & do something about it but I'll not hold my breath *sadface*

Indeed I do :-( When the madness of getting final awards noms out and back and FO is over, I might get to finish it.

It'll certainly be interesting to see what happens figure-wise. Really, that's interesting.

But they didn't drop that much, not really, not in the grand scheme of things, so sadly, I suspect they won't :-(

I guessed right. Hee. But then it wasn't hard;-)

I look forward to your thinky thoughts post. And I think it is best these shows go out on a high.

I would type more but am stuck using netbook.

*Grins* Well done you.

Thank you. I hope to get it finished soon. Oh, indeed.

Oh, dear :-( Laptop is really playing up, is it?

Hehehehe! Not surprised at all at your choice. *smiles*
I loved NCIS with passion in its first seasons. Now, I still love it, but I'm having issues with storylines, and some characterization, so sometimes, after watching it I end q
nakeisha From: nakeisha Date: 7th June 2010 13:43 (UTC) (Link)

I doubt anyone is surprised.

I know, I know. So many people feel the same way :-(

Damn! I didn't meant to post! I'm sure I didn't hit post! Why LJ decided to post for me? *glares at LJ*
Well, maybe I hit enter without intention... *blushes*
Ok, what I was saying is: sometimes, once the episode ended, I am quite grumpy.
But, if I'm grumpy that means I still care, so I'll go with grumpy *g*
And yes, I do understand what you mean when you wish that it would go off air. I've been there with some of my shows. Sadly.
You do that because you love them, and you don't want to take the risk to see them go down.
And yes, I'm laaaaate, late answering this.
But then, I'm late at everything, my own meme included *sigh*
nakeisha From: nakeisha Date: 7th June 2010 13:45 (UTC) (Link)
Because LJ has a mind of its own *g*

Oh, dear. I'm sorry it makes you grumpy :-( But that's true, it does indeed mean you still care. I understand that fully.

And I'm glad you understand my 'love it but wish it would end'. Indeed, it's still good, not great but good - well the ratings say the opposite :-( - and now is the time to go.

Not late at all, any time is all right with me.

That's not so weird, I prefer dealing with closed canon shows in terms of writing as then you know that the next show isn't going to undo what you've written.

To remain my favourite show despite the 'downhill slide' shows just what a good show it is.

That happens with lots of shows, hopefully it will go off air before it becomes unwatchable & doesn't suffer anything like MFU's 3rd series.

I'm glad it doesn't seem weird to you and I do long for the day it becomes closed canon. Apart from anything else, it's really tiring dealing with open canon.

I do hope they call it a day when ratings are still high. As far as I and many others are concerned, it's already dropped in quality, etc. Yet the ratings seem to get better and better. But it's no longer the show with which I fell in love :-(
