End of the Year Fandom Meme

Which TV shows did you start watching in 2019?
Watership Down, The Mandalorian, A Series of Unfortunate Events, and The Umbrella Academy. Seems like there must be more than that but for the life of me I can't remember.

Which TV shows did you let go of in 2019?
Most of them didn't give me a choice. What a year for cancellations, huh? Some of those I probably would have dropped anyway, though. And in addition to those, Disenchantment.

Which TV shows did you mean to get into but didn't in 2019? Why?
His Dark Materials and Relics and Rarities (Deborah Ann Woll's RPG show), both of which because they aren't currently available for free. Also haven't yet gotten to some new seasons on my list yet, including Agents of SHIELD, Game of Thrones, Runaways, and Stranger Things. Still haven't watched the last season of Lost, so that's got to be next.

Which TV shows do you intend on checking out in 2020?
The Marvel shows on Disney+, The Witcher, The Lord of the Rings if it's out (unlikely), and Cowboy Bebop if it's out (unlikely).

Which TV show impressed you least in 2018?
Disenchanted, Watership Down, The Punisher, Jessica Jones.

Which TV show do you think you might let go of in 2019 unless things significantly improve?
The Good Place, but I hear it's ending anyway. The Umbrella Academy and Love Death + Robots, but those are both Netflix shows and I don't intend to keep the service. Brooklyn 9-9, because it's still a good show but it's been getting tired and it's not the same without Gina.

Which TV shows do you think you’ll never let go of no matter how crappy they get?
The Dragon Prince -- not the answer I would have expected myself to give, but the thing is, it's already somewhat crappy. What keeps me watching is the gorgeous, creative, intricate, lush, varied, skillfully rendered character designs, both humanoid and animal. The show's not likely to lose that, and I'm here for it. (Except, of course, that it's a Netflix show. D'oh.)

Your main fandom of the year?
Wheel of Time, Legion, MCU.

Your favorite film you watched this year?
Avengers: Endgame, Into the Spider-Verse, Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle, Spider-Man: Far From Home, and Captain Marvel.

Your favorite book read this year?
Towers of Midnight and A Memory of Light by Robert Jordan and Brandon Sanderson, David Copperfield by Charles Dickens, Uncle Tom's Cabin by Harriet Beecher Stowe, Even the Wingless by MCA Hogarth.

Your favorite album or song to listen to this year?
War of the Worlds musical and It's Always Blue: Songs From Legion.

Your favorite TV show(s) of the year?
Good Omens, Cloak & Dagger, and The Mandalorian.

Your best new fandom discovery of the year?
A Series of Unfortunate Events, I suppose.

Your fandom that made an unexpected comeback this year?
Lord of the Rings, Magic: the Gathering, Creature Tech, True Blood.

Your biggest fandom disappointment of the year?
Weak final seasons for The Punisher and Jessica Jones, weak adaptations of The Lion King, Watership Down, and A Wrinkle in Time, bad narrative choices in Saga, some online tool spoiling Endgame for me.

Your fandom boyfriend(s) of the year?
Crowley, Aziraphale, Simba, Androl Genhald, Arthur Curry, Aragorn son of Arathorn, Rod Serling, King Harrow, Jerome/The Wolf, Charles Xavier, Goose, Rocket Raccoon, and Spike Spiegel.

Your fandom girlfriend(s) of the year?
Nala, Vitani, Egwene al'Vere, Pevara Tazanovni, General Amaya, Gwen Stacey, Lenny Busker, Switch, Gabrielle Haller, Jessica Hamby, Janet, and the Slave Queen.

Your biggest squee moment of the year?
Meeting up with Taaroko for Endgame, the final battle in Endgame, Disney rehiring James Gunn, covering Legion on CBR, WoT cast announcements.

The most missed of your old fandoms?
Particularly pining for Netflix MCU this year. I just wish there had been a better goodbye.

The fandom you haven't tried yet, but want to?
His Dark Materials and Relics and Rarities as mentioned above. Also I foresee a lot of M:tG in my future.

Your biggest fan anticipations for the coming year?
The New Mutants? Is it finally safe to assume that we will actually get to watch The New Mutants within the next year? Or am I just going to keep anticipating it every coming year until the end of time? Anyway, there's also Star Wars: Rise of Skywalker (I won't see it until after January begins), those shows I mentioned above, and...man, I don't know. What did everyone else put for this question?

Filling this out makes me realize that for me it wasn't a huge year for fandom, aside from Endgame. Not bothered; it's been a great year otherwise. Later I'm going to do a personal entry with the non-fandom year's end meme.
