Series 3? What series 3?

Oh. The trainwreck. The one that broke my heart on Thursday and trampled on the pieces on Friday.

The series that never was.

I am resolved. No more crying, no more ranting. From now on, every memory I have of seeing that horrible thing will be stored in a quarantined area of my mind. Cordoned off with police tape. Do not trespass. And every time my thoughts go anywhere near there, my brain shall come to a screeching halt, and then very slowly backtrack until I'm safely back in the realm of industrial-strength coffee, stopwatches and naked hide-and-seek (he cheats, he always cheats).

Jack/Ianto shall prevail. Take that, Russell T. Davies, you callous sadistic fandom-wrecking moron.

So there.

*nods*

Now I think I can sleep. Goodnight. Somebody send me a hug please?

If you could pick any TV show that has been off the air to come back for one more season, which show would you pick and why?

The Big Read reckons that the average adult has only read 6 of the top 100 books they've printed.

1) Look at the list and bold those you have read.

2) Italicize those you intend to read.

3) Underline the books you LOVE.

4) Reprint this list in your own LJ so we can try and track down these people who've read 6 and force books upon them ;-)
