The Fan Theory of Dreams (The Flash)

Wow, it’s been over a month since I’ve posted…the longest gap I’ve ever had since Blue Towel Productions (the blog, not the film making effort) began.  What should I do?  Should I apologize?  Have I broken a sacred trust between me and my readers that I need to get right?

Um…probably not.  I don’t know, do any of you feel like we have a sacred trust between us?  But at the same time, it’s fair enough if people don’t feel like visiting a blog where there is never anything new.  And I do want to keep in the habit of writing, so even in the very busy season that I’m in I’m going to keep at it.  After all, I only have two more episodes of Next Generation to comment on before that project is finally complete!

Secondly, I don’t get to watch that much TV in Australia in my normal life just straight off the TV.   So a lot of my TV viewing comes in watching stuff online on the Australian TV network’s websites, or buying something off iTunes, or even catching things while I’m flying (thank you, extensive in-flight entertainment systems!)

So lately, in various ways I’ve caught a few episodes of a few shows, all of which are already cancelled. This is both a blessing a curse, I guess. On one hand, it’s always a little sad when a show you like is cancelled. On the other hand, there’s something sort of encouraging when you know that a show you are just spending on time on isn’t going to go on forever.
