Regarding the new Torchwood series.  
With the new Torchwood series about to air on Starz later today, I felt it was time I came to a decision about whether I'm going to watch.

And the answer is no.

There are various reasons why I'm not, but basically it comes down to I'm not excited by it, and I have limited free time, so I'm not wasting that time watching something that I'm not interested in.

I know some people on my flist are looking forward to it, others really, really aren't, and a few probably aren't fans of any Torchwood series.

I'm not going to harsh the squee of those who are going to be watching, they have every right to be happy about a new series. But I won't be commenting on squee posts - it would, after all, be a bit silly to comment on something that I'm not watching.

I'm also not going to be posting rants about what is wrong with Torchwood: Miracle Day. Because, well I'm not watching it, so I don't know what wrong/right/ridiculous/fantastic etc about it.

I will be listening to the radio plays as it's probably the last of Old Torchwood that we're going to get. I'm not going to be able to listen to them live though, because of work, but I okay with getting spoiled for those.

So what does this mean for me writing Torchwood fic? It means everything will go on as it has done. I'll keep writing series 1,2 and CoE fix-its, I'll still be there trying to be an organised mod for [livejournal.com profile] tw_classic

Criminal Minds.  
Criminal Minds - Why does it have to be so long until next series? Okay 16/17 weeks isn't really that long, but that ending? It's a long time to wait.

Yet another fandom :)  

I know I don't really need another fandom to follow, and I had stayed out of this one for a while despite it being the sort of thing that I normally watch simply because I knew that I'd get suckered in.

Basically my brother is to blame for this, he's be watching it from the start and keeps telling me to watch it. I think his description was 'it's got weird stuff and the sort of music you (me) normally have playing in your car.'

The series and associated fandom in question is Supernatural.

So I've now watched through the first series over the past week or so. Fin had got all the episodes downloaded already because someday sit seems like he's downloaded the whole internet - it can be handy though as it means I've got everything right up to date just sitting on the shared hdd waiting for me to have time to watch it.

I don't think it's likely to become one of my main fandoms, and I'm not sure that I'll ever end up writing anything in it, because although it's a good series it just doesn't connect for me like Torchwood did. I might be wrong, but if after watching 22 episodes I'm just not getting a connection I'm thinking it's probably not going to happen.

If it does end up being a fandom that I write fic in I think it will about Dean Winchester. I get the impression that there are probably more Sam fangirls than Dean ones, I guess Sam (well from what I've seen so far) has the whole young, floppy haired, idealistic, woobie potential that seems to get the more fans (Not that I particularly see the character as that, but I can certainly see why some people might). Dean is more brash, seems totally self confident, doesn't seem to care what people think, but there are moments in it when you see that a lot of it might be an act or at the very least he's not totally unaffected by what's going on, that a lot of it is bravado because he doesn't want his younger brother to be hurt or worried and he feels it's his responsibilty to keep him safe. 

That was probably rather more rambly than I intended, and possibly less coherant than I think it is, but my cold is still not leaving me alone. Why can't it be the weekend yet when I don't have to get up early and go to work?
