Which TV shows did you start watching in 2017?
Iron Fist, the new MST3K, Legion, American Gods, Star Trek, The Defenders, Bojack Horseman, The Punisher.

Which TV shows did you let go of in 2017?
Not really any. I shrugged off Legend of Korra and True Blood before finishing them, but will probably get back there. Didn't continue with Poldark.

Which TV shows did you mean to get into but didn't in 2017? Why?
The Gifted, Inhumans, Runaways. Entirely due to time constraints or availability.

Which TV shows do you intend on checking out in 2018?
Cloak and Dagger and the three listed above plus all of the continuing Marvel shows and whatever else updates from the ones in the first question. Stranger Things. Going to finally rewatch/finish Lost. Ooh, and I'll finally get to see another season of Game of Thrones.

Which TV show impressed you least in 2017?
Iron Fist.

Which TV show do you think you might let go of in 2018 unless things significantly improve?
I ended with an overall unfavorable impression of American Gods, but I'll probably still tune in for at least one more season.

Which TV shows do you think you’ll never let go of no matter how crappy they get?
Anything in the MCU Netflix lineup.

Your main fandom of the year?
BtVS, MCU/Guardians of the Galaxy/The Defenders, and Wheel of Time.

Your favorite film you watched this year?
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, Spider-Man: Homecoming, Wonder Woman, Kubo and the Two Strings, some I'm forgetting. Haven't seen The Last Jedi yet, or for that matter, Thor: Ragnarok or The Shape of Water.

Your favorite book read this year?
To Be or Not to Be, Tess of the D'Urbervilles, How to Draw Comics the Marvel Way, Frankenstein, Mindline, The Picture of Dorian Grey.

Your favorite album or song to listen to this year?
Awesome Mix Vol. 2, obviously. Also within the past week I discovered the song "Devil's Backbone" by the Civil Wars, which is neat because I rarely discover new music anymore.

Your favorite TV show(s) of the year?
The Punisher, Legion, and Bojack Horseman.

Your best new fandom discovery of the year?
Those three shows above.

Your fandom that made an unexpected comeback this year?
Cowboy Bebop (my husband decided we should rewatch the whole series, which is A-OK with me). Twin Peaks (same story), although that wasn't really a fandom of mine in the first place; it's just a show I've seen before. Also, wrote a story for Firefly.

Your biggest fandom disappointment of the year?
The Defenders was a bit of a mess. American Gods had some fail in a few different areas. I wanted to like Logan more than I did. I wanted to like The Dark Tower at all. Saga dropped the ball. I missed the first song in RENT. Chris Pratt and his wife separated. What the hell, Joss Whedon.

Your fandom boyfriend(s) of the year?
Frank Castle, David Lieberman, Peter Quill, Rocket Raccoon, Shadow Moon, David Haller, Ptonomy Wallace, Spike Spiegel.

Your fandom girlfriend(s) of the year?
Karen Page, Jessica Jones, Monkey, Mantis, Lenny Busker, Diana Prince.

Your biggest squee moment of the year?
Seeing Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 for the first time. Seeing Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 for the second time. Seeing Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 for...I'm not sure what I'm up to now, seven? Legion's origins revealed. Applejack's origins revealed. Seated next to Roger and Mimi at dinner after RENT. Disney buying Fox. New B/A fans heaping flattery on me. ELEVATOR SCENE.

The most missed of your old fandoms?
I would really like to contribute a few more cool things to the Buffy fandom but I'm not sure if I can.

The fandom you haven't tried yet, but want to?
Same answer as last year: if I like the thing, I'd like the fandom for it, but I don't have the time.

Your biggest fan anticipations for the coming year?
Infinity War of course! Jessica Jones S2, Daredevil S3. Those aforementioned Marvel shows. The New Mutants. The Jurassic World sequel. The Deadpool sequel.
