Yes my friends we have finally reached the end of these fandom posts. For some you may be sad, while others may rejoice that we are done.
But how do you close a posts like these? Ones that talk about fandoms you love? How do you truly show how wonderful they have been? Well in the words of Eric Matthews (Boy Meets World) “I could tell you what I think about you, but it would just come out a bunch of words. And I know, nobody could say it better than a little girl named Lulu” (with my help of changing the words slightly).
Those school girl days of telling tales
And biting nails are gone
But in my mind I know
They will still live on and onBut how do you thank someone
Who has taken you from crayons to blogging?
It isn’t easy, but I’ll tryIf you wanted the sky
I would write across the sky in letters
That would soar a thousand feet high
To Fandom, with loveA Fandom who taught me right from wrong
And weak from strong
That’s a lot to learn, what
can I give you in return?If you wanted the moon
I would try to make a star
But I, would rather you let me give my heart
To Fandom, with love
Wishbone was such an awesome show. It made a huge impact on my life and made me interested in classic literature.
The show was about a dog named Wishbone, his master Joe and his mom (Joe’s dad passed away) and his friends Sam and David. In every episode it covered something happening with the characters and related it to a classic. When Wishbone would tell the story, he would always be the main character.
They did Robin Hood, Pride & Prejudice (which I will be reviewing), The Adventures of Tom Sawyer, Rip Van Winkle, Ivanhoe, Frankenstein, just to name a few. It was an excellent show.
They also had a fantastic book series that tied in to the show which was just as good. All of them made reading seem like so much fun, and encouraged us all to do it.
I wish they had more shows like that on TV now for kids. Or put it up on Netflix or Amazon Prime.
I came upon Whitechapel when I was browsing Amazon Prime and thought it sounded interesting, plus starred Rupert Penry Jones who plays Captain Fredrick Wentworth in Persuasion (2007).
I started watching and was immediately HOOKED!
This DI (Detective Inspector) Joe Chandler is sent to Whitechapel, London. At first he encounters issues as he cleans up the department (literally as he is a germophobe). Others are upset that they choose to bring someone new in, rather than promote one of them.
Someone is killing in the manner of Jack the Ripper and DI Chandler mobilizes his whole team to try and catch him.
It was amazingly well written, and the following seasons were just as good. But sadly, like Copper, it didn’t last more than three. I don’t know why as it was fantastic!
I loved the X-Files. I started watching because my sister was into it, but it quickly became something I adored as well. It is about FBI Agent Fox Mulder who is the one who investigates anything unusual or strange in the country. He has made quite a lot of enemies and is paired with the always logical doctor, FBI Agent Dana Scully.
She quickly fell for him, just as the viewers did, and becomes sucked into the craziness of the X-Files.
I love David Duchovny…
And had to stop watching when he left/was abducted by aliens. I know they came out with a new version of the show, but I haven’t seen it. I’m scared it won’t be as good.
I am a HUGE X-Men fan. I started getting into them through the Saturday morning cartoon show and from there I got into the comic books, X-Men Evolution, etc. I’ve read the X-Men Encyclopedia a gazillion times, and don’t get me started on how awesome they are or you will never be able to shut me up. My favorites have to be Gambit and Rogue, they are the absolute best.

This show wasn’t around a real long time (sadly only two seasons) but was AMAZING!!!! It told the story of the younger group of DC characters and was totally awesome.
We have Conner, a clone of Superman who not only wants to know more about being like him, but how to be anyone. It’s hard when so much of you is based off another person, and because of the mix of human DNA you aren’t even exactly like him.
M’gann, Jon the Manhunter’s niece, who wants so desperately to fit in on Earth and has a secret she’s keeping from everyone else.
Artemis, half-Vietnamese girl who is trying to go down a different path than her father.
Robin, trying to live up the caped crusader who gives him a home, while at the same time finding his own place in the world.
Kid Flash, nephew to the Flash, and an extremely smart and overactive kid. Not only has he recreated the accident that gave Barry his powers, but is eager to be just as good a crime fighter.
Aqualad, super cool as he has had an incredible upgrade in his powers.
I hate that they canceled it after the second season as the characters are awesome, the story-telling incredible and much more adult as the characters grow, and intensely suspenseful. Loved it!

But of course this really isn’t the end.
As I continue to live I am sure that will be new things I become obsessed over and the fandom posts will rise once again. For now thank you all who have come on this journey, I hope that you have enjoyed my review of the things you loved and that maybe you were inspired to check out a few things you had never heard of before.
