I'm in a raaaaaage!

So we should play a fun game from Tumblr:
"Test my fandom osmosis abilities"
Instructions: Comment with a fandom or two I know nothing about and I will summarize it as best I can. Past and present fandoms both welcome.

What I learned is that it is super-entertaining to hear non-watchers' impressions of your favorite show, so I hope I can live up. It's possible my position is flawed due to how my brain soaks in ONTD and general TV news 24/7, but, IDK. Let's find out.

P.S. Y'all have 24 hours and then I take this game over So You Think You Can Dance style, where America Livejournal's input is appreciated but the judges make the final call, meaning if I don't get at least half a dozen shows, I am throwing in whatever-the-heck shows I have always wanted to declare my fandom-osmosis impressions of.
--------------
ETA: Also, in Traumatizing Things That You Didn't Know Would Trigger You, Tumblr showed me the gruesome "how to melt a chocolate rabbit" video, I don't know if it's the eerie music or the closeups on the face (ITS EYES), but it is the scariest horror film I have ever seen despite being only 3 minutes long. Like, it chilled my soul and made my skin crawl and I actually felt a little sick to my stomach, and the 5 seconds I spared to create that link made me feel horrible all over again. This is an insensitive comparison to make, I know, but...it feels like I actually watched a person being tortured to death. This is a disturbingly visceral effect.

[P.S. Also, arachnophobes should not read this next part.]P.S. GREAT. NOW THERE IS A HYPERACTIVE BLACK SPIDER RACING ALL AROUND MY DESK FASTER THAN THE SPEED OF WIELDED SHOES, HIDING IN THE CLUTTER SO I CAN'T KILL IT, UNTIL IT RANDOMLY ZOOMS ACROSS MY SCREEN AND/OR KEYBOARD.

Update: OR FALLS OFF THE EDGE OF THE DESK RIGHT IN FRONT OF MY CHAIR, ZIPS DOWN THE GARBAGE CAN AND ZOOMS AWAY ACROSS THE FLOOR. NEAR MY BARE FEET.

I can't decide what is more terrifying now, staying at the desk or going to into unsuspecting sleep in case it decides to visit my bed next. This has happened before.

I LIKE THIS GAME! And suddenly realize I'm bad at keeping track of what people have watched and what they haven't. So here, just have a whole bunch and we'll see what works!

+ Gilmore Girls
+ Legend of the Seeker
+ Merlin
+ True Blood
+ Buffy the Vampire Slayer
+ Angel
+ Dollhouse
+ New Girl
+ Don't Trust The B In Apartment 23
+ Warehouse 13
+ Doctor Who, The Moffat Years
+ Sherlock
+ Once Upon A Time (DO YOU WATCH THIS? WHY CAN'T I REMEMBER?)

Ahhhhh look at them all! That is so great. I have a pretty good idea of LotS, but I am totally answering the rest. PREPARE YOURSELF. (and, OK, I have an even better idea of Gilmore Girls, but that show is too fun to ignore)

OUAT is a show that I keep meaning to watch except now it's 2 seasons later and I still haven't done that. So I kind of know in the sense that I read posts about its themes, but not episode reviews.

Like brosome, I'm not certain what you've watched before, so I think I'll pick some shows that I know are big on tumblr: Supernatural, Teen Wolf, and Hannibal!

These are good choices because, especially in the case of Supernatural, I have never actually stopped to research anything about any of them or figure out know! Except maybe Hannibal; Tumblr spoiled me with a "here's what you need to know" guide. We'll see how much I remember from that, I guess.
