Thursday 13 #5: TV Shows I’ve…Finessed

Like many people, the first stories in my head began from the ones I saw on TV.  I can’t remember a time when I didn’t go off with TV characters into new adventures, to “fix” episodes I didn’t like, or into their backstories.  It never occurred to me to write any of it down, and I don’t write or read fan-fiction today.  But I still do it, in the privacy of my head.   These are some of the TV shows that inspired my daydreams.

Would love to hear your experiences with TV-inspired daydreams, what shows you liked, or your fond memories of these.

  1. Wow, I recognise so many of these!

  2. Awesome! I love that you have Wonder Woman & Beauty & the Beast on here – great shows!

    Have a great Thursday! 🙂

  3. Wow, what an assortment of shows. I laughed when you said you fixed the show in your head. I do that too.

    man, i miss buffy.

  5. That’s a good way to encourage children to write as well! Thanks for sharing!

  6. I miss Firefly. Great list.

  7. Hee hee, what a neat idea, and I enjoyed many of those shows — in particular, I loved Star Trek: TNG!

    Happy T13, and thanks for visiting mine!

  8. Oh, yeah. Not “fan fiction” really, but the inspiration, theme, or general feel of a show, definitely. Happy TT!

  9. OMG! Thundar the Barbarian. LOLOLOL

    Seriously have seen all of these shows. Uh are we related and accisently seperated at birth?!!

    This week I am thanking my fellow TTer’s by having you to pick my book trailer. Just my way of thanking you for being so supportive of me.

  10. There seems to be a theme… 😛

    Happy TT13!

  11. Wow. Aside from Santa Barbara I think you have an awesome collection of shows there. I am especially fond of the original (and best) Battlestar Galactica.

    I just finished a take on the entire Thundarr series too (with pics) if you are interested in checking it out:

    PS – Is that Richard Hatch’s signature on that picture?
