LONG BLOG

I'm going to be completely honest with all of you. Last night I got extremely emotional and practically cried my eyes out as I watched the final episode of Battlestar Galactica. I say this without regret, and without being embarrassed, because what I watched last night was 2 of the most beautiful hours of cinema ever put on the small screen. The episode had everything from epic battle scenes, to touching and deeply emotional death scenes. It took you on an emotional rollercoaster ride from beginning to end and never let go until the screen faded to black for the very last time. If there was ever a way to end a television drama, that episode was it.

For those of you out there who have not yet watched or experienced the 4 season long arc of the new Battlestar Galactica, you are truly missing out on the best science fiction drama on television. You don't even need to be a fan of science fiction to enjoy it, because the truth is, the show is really just a drama, that happens to take place in a science fiction setting. I have watched this show for the last 6 years, and I can say without any doubt, that this is the best science fiction show on television. I can't tell you how many times I have watched this show and had some type of emotional response to it. Whether that means jumping up from my seat and screaming out in joy, or lowering my head as tears streamed down my face, this show packs a punch. The story telling and character study is presents is absolutely at the head of the class. It is a show that I will always remember, and that I will probably watch over and over and over for decades to come.

Good bye Battlestar Galactica. You will me missed .....

Current "Bloggers Wanted" assignment

Villains that did nothing wrong

Villains in all media, not just video games, can end up being a dime a dozen. Far too often, a villain's motives boil down to "I am a bad, and so I do bad things. Fear me." While this format has worked for countless stories, at this point in my life (the ripe old age of 20) I’ve become jaded and grumpy, finding myself rolling my eyes when I see yet another antagonist wreaking havoc with no background or reasoning presented as to why they’re being such a butthole.

What’s far more interesting to me is when a villain’s motives or actions come across as justified, perhaps leaving you rooting for them to defeat the protagonist [insert Elder God Tier villain meme here].

My favorite example of this would be Meruem from the Chimera Ant arc of Hunter x Hunter. While he doesn’t necessarily fit the exact mold I laid out above, he’s easily one of the most dynamic and curious villains I’ve ever come across. For the sake of not spoiling what is perhaps one of the most exciting, action-packed, and tear-inducing arcs in anime history, I won’t delve into the details of what makes Meruem so great. Instead I encourage anyone who hasn’t seen Hunter x Hunter to set aside some time and plow through the series. Really, it’s that good.

But hey, that’s just how I feel. I’m sure there are folks out there who prefer their villains to be simple. If I ever met one of these theoretical people I might have a panic attack, but I’ll deal with that should the time come. I’m sure after some deep breaths we would get along. Maybe we could even snuggle, should my husband allow such an event to transpire.

All said and done, we arrive at the topic of this month’s Bloggers Wanted: Villains that did nothing wrong. Due to communication errors, this entry in the hallowed halls of Bloggers Wanted is a tad late. Regardless, all you have to do is head over to the Community Blog section of the site, and whip up a Cblog about a villain who you feel was secretly the good guy all along.
