5 Deaths that Devastated Fandoms

It is a sad fact of life, but where there is a fandom of fervent fans who absolutely love a TV show, movie series, or video game… There is going to be deaths so tragic that it just brings a tear to your eye at the mere sound or sight of their name. Those characters that will always be remembered tragically and with contempt for the creators for taking our beloved treasures away from us. This list is to commemorate 5 of those characters who left us with a void in our heart that simply could not be replaced.

So here are the Rules
One character per franchise. Harry Potter has a plethora of tragic deaths… But only one can be chosen.
The character has to stay dead or have a complete character redesign.
There is no rhyme or reason to this list. It is just ten characters whose deaths hurt the most.
If I missed someone from your favorite fandom, I’ll be honest it might just be because I missed it… Or I just don’t care about that particular fandom.
There are spoilers from this point on. So if you get upset… Oh well, not my problem. Continue reading “5 Deaths that Devastated Fandoms”

Tanner Reviews The Day of the Doctor

200px-Poster_Day-of-the-DoctorNormally I am not one to review stand alone episodes of a series. Well actually I’m not really one to review television period with few exceptions of course. But I felt that given the circumstances of this particular episode I can make an exception an give my thoughts on the 50th Anniversary of one of my favorite television shows, Doctor Who. From 1963-2013 the television screen has been graced with The Doctor and all of his amazing adventures… It is really hard to believe. But with a show as long tenured and popular as Doctor Who, I think it goes without saying that the 50th Anniversary Special needed to pull out all the stops… And Steven Moffat did not disappoint in the slightest. With the return of previous Doctors like Tom Baker, Paul McGann (in one of the prequels), David Tennant, and the new addition of John Hurt as the War Doctor, and of course the current Doctor Matt Smith… This really was a truly special experience for any Whovian.

Top 4 Reasons Why Doctor Who is the Best Television Show Idea Ever

imagesDoctor Who… The British Science Fiction television show about the time traveling Doctor and his various companions as they travel through time and space in the TARDIS saving the universe as we know it week after week. The show has been running since 1963 and has only hit one snag in the 1990’s before being rebooted in 2005. So far 11 people have played the crazy Galifrayan in the Big Blue Box with the twelfth coming early next year.

This show has been going on for six decades now and could be considered one of the longest running television shows of all time. While calling it the greatest television show of all time is very premature, the fact that a show can survive six decades while others struggle to survive six seasons is a pretty impressive task. Now personally, I absolutely love the show and is one I can watch anytime that I am board. Plus on a personal note I do consider it one of the greatest television shows of all time as well.
