Irreverence is the champion of liberty and its only sure defense.”
– Mark Twain
Originally an outlet to write out Veronica Mars episodes, because I was trying to figure out who blew up the bus, but now ever since we found out that multi-episode-long mysteries on VM were down the crapper, I was kind of in limbo.Veronica Mars has ended! Haha good riddance. I still have fond memories of the first and second season, don’t get me wrong, but the third season sucked and blew and the behind-the-scenes (executive producer and cast-wise) stuff was… no good. (I’m not going to relay it since it was told in a protected avenue and I know that makes it sound more false, but whatever.)
So I decided to focus on television shows. If it aired on television somewhere in the world, it’s game. Don’t ask me why I call East Asian shows CJK TV serials, it’s a term I think I made up in 2002 and it just works for me, and now I can’t undo this horror I have unleashed upon the world. I suppose I could just call them “dramas,” but what about those crazy HK comedies that take place at the turn of the century when whitey is coming in? Actually, I could just say CJK TV or CJK Dramas, but I like the word “serial.”
If it seems like I’m hating/harping/being mean/being irreverent to something I claim is my favorite, that means I LOVE IT. Why would I watch something I don’t even want to watch in the first place, and then take time out of my day to make fun of it? So the more I make fun, the better I love it, my dear. Oh and that irreverence quote has nothing to do with anything, except Mark Twain.
