Fandom


http://edrecoveryprobs.com/post/67997674476/dont-you-think-youre-a-little-obsessive

I tend to get obsessive about things. Luckily, it doesn’t translate into relationships. Unfortunately, it does apply to lines of thinking such as eating disordered thoughts. It also includes all my geeky fandom. There are sci-fi/fantasy shows and books that I like, but they aren’t as loved as the series I get obsessed with. I go in cycles.

Charmed (TV show 1998 – 2006) “Three sisters discover their destiny – to battle against the forces of evil, using their witchcraft. They are the Charmed Ones.”

Stargate SG1 (TV show 1997 – 2007) “A secret military team, SG-1, is formed to explore the recently discovered Stargates[, which allow travel to alien planets.]”

Being Human (TV show 2011 – still filming) A vampire, werewolf, and ghost try to live like humans in the same home. Returns to the SyFy Channel on January 14th!

Dark Angel (TV show 2000 – 2002, 3 books) The government genetically engineers children and raises them to be super soldiers, then 12 escape.

Firefly (TV show 2002 – 2003, comics) “Five hundred years in the future, a renegade crew aboard a small spacecraft tries to survive as they travel the unknown parts of the galaxy and evade warring factions as well as [the government.]”

Revolution (TV show 2012 – present) “A group of revolutionaries confronts an authoritarian regime 15 years after an instantaneous global shutdown of all electrical devices known as the Blackout.”

Dollhouse (TV show 2009 – 2010, comics) A futuristic lab wipes people’s minds and then rents them out to the rich with various imprinted personalities and skills.

Buffy the Vampire Slayer (TV show 1997 – 2003, comics, and books) Buffy, a normal teenage girl, discovers she is a Slayer and fights to rid the world of evil. The books are mostly just omnibus collections of the comics. That is how I buy them.

Angel (TV show 1999 – 2004, comics) The vampire Angel, who burns in the sun like vampires are supposed to, is cursed with a soul. As a result, he feels guilt and empathy. Attempting to repent for past wrongs, he sets up an investigation agency to help people with supernatural problems. Angel also has omnibus comic collections.

Lost (TV show 2004 – 2010) A plane crash lands on an island and the survivors must attempt to survive mysterious events.

Legend of the Seeker (TV show 2008 – 2010) Richard Cypher’s father is murdered and his best friend turns out to be a famous wizard. His friend names his the “Seeker of Truth” and he must help defeat a dictator intent on ruling the world.

Alias (TV show 2001 – 2006) Sydney Bristow thinks she is working for the CIA. She discovers her employer is actually a terrorist organization. She teams up with the real CIA to bring them down.

The Sword of Truth (Books1994 – 2013) Legend of the Seeker is loosely based on the books. I love them both in their own right. I’m currently reading The Omen Machine (book #12).

The Wheel of Time (Books 1990 – 2013) It is really hard to summarize. Just read the Wikipedia link.

Darkover (Books 1958 – still being published) Darkover is a planet settled by a wrecked spaceship. Over generations, they establish their own society. Furthermore, some people begin exhibiting psychic powers. Years later the rest of humanity discovers them. The books are both about the fantasy world of Darkover and the intersection of it’s civilization with technologically advanced humanity.

Lord of the Rings (Books 1954 – 1955) Of course, there are the  famous movie adaptions. The Extended Edition DVDs are worth it!

Continuum (TV show 2012 – still filming) A police officer from 2077 is sent back in time to 2012 during the escape attempt of condemned murderers. Returns to the SyFy Channel in June 2014!

Defiance (TV show 2013 – still filming) Aliens invaded earth a generation ago. Joshua Nolan was a child during the invasion. As an adult he adopted an abused alien girl and raised her as his own. Through a series of events, he becomes Defiance’s (formerly Saint Louis, MO) law keeper. Returns to the SyFy Channel in June 2014!

Battlestar Galactica (TV show 2004 – 2009) Cylons, prodigy of man-made robots, destroyed Earth. Trapped in spaceships, the survivors search for the fabled 13th colony. Yes, I know there was an original series in the 1980s, but I have not seen it.

There are probably others that I used to be obsessed with like Star Wars (Yes, I did link to The Phantom Menace 😉 I like all the movies), which I forgot to list. Additionally, there are series such as Star Trek (Original, The Next Generation, and Voyager) or The Big Bang Theory that I enjoy, but not to the same degree.
