Now that my favorite television shows have finished their first-run episodes, what’s a person to do during the summer months (or, in the case of Outlander, more like an entire year)? How about the SciFi Chicks Summer Series 2015, where I attempt to post weekly discussions favorite episodes (Supernatural and possibly Arrow), highlights and lowlights of the past season (Outlander), and various musings (including, but not limited to The Flash)?
Let’s start with a musing.
In my bi-annual visit to Facebook yesterday, I found an intriguing entry from my friend Natalie. She told me to visit Cupboard Makers Books’ Facebook page and vote for my favorite “champion.” Then, if I came to the book-signing event at the brick-and-mortar Cupboard Maker Books on Saturday, I might win a prize!
Rats! If I’d been more timely I might have made the trip to Enola, PA. Not just to perhaps win a prize, but to take the car out on the open road, perhaps get a couple of Natalie’s books signed (and maybe buy a new one), and meet other Sam Heughan/Jamie Fraser and Jared Padalecki/Sam Winchester fans. (It fascinates me that these two men were picked, seeing as I opined a while back about their similarities.)
Now I’m curious. Which champion did Natalie pick? I’m going with one of the Sams—Heughan (Fraser) or Winchester (Padalecki). Probably the former since she recently informed me she’s back to being a full-time Dean Winchester-girl on Supernatural.
But, she hasn’t yet commented on Outlander’s season finale, “To Ransom a Man’s Soul.” That tells me she either didn’t see it (perhaps her free Starz subscription ended), or she was too disgusted with it to revisit. I hope she doesn’t think that just because she might violently disagree with me, her comments wouldn’t be welcome. Nothing could be further from the truth!
Which segues nicely…
… into reiterating the comment policy. All comments are welcome—even encouraged. You don’t have to agree with me. Everyone has opinions, and in most cases, no one’s is less valid than any other’s (discrimination being an exception). I respect that, and would never try to change your opinion, and as long as you’re respectful.
Now back to less serious matters:
There are lessons to be learned from this missed opportunity. Thus, I shall be attending my very own summer school, in which I learn to better use and become more involved with social media.
*Oh yeah. Matt Damon and Joe Manganiello were also “championed.” What was Damon doing in this list? He’s not over 6′ tall!
