I'm not sorry, because it's a marvelous show with amazing actors, which everybody should watch!
As for some of the other stuff you can still find here occasionally:
Sherlock Holmes in most incarnations, Benedict Cumberbatch and his equally brilliant colleague Daniel Craig. Suits (tv), White Collar (tv), Doctor Who, comics, manga (mostly Eroica Yori Ai o Komete / From Eroica With Love), as well as spies (fictional and real life espionage), Ludwig II, creepy stuff and whatever else should strike my fancy!

My brain might actually explode tonight.
Ok, so, every now and then I come across people who say outright “Oh my God! Jim Caviezel is such an awful person!” Any fans of his work are bound to have seen such comments. And I don’t mind admitting that I fought with this issue a bit myself. I disagree with Jim Caviezel’s standpoint on a huge number of moral and political issues. I mean, he’s a Republican and a devout Catholic, and there are certain ideologies that he upholds as a result which I find personally repugnant (chief among them being the idea that abortion is “the greatest moral defect of the western world”. Damn, Jim). Now, I may not have to associate with him in everyday life, but my objections to his ideals are still a cause of some consternation for me when trying to enjoy seeing him on my tv screen on a regular basis, and I know I’m not the only one who feels conflicted like this […]
Excellent and thank you for posting this. I have a great respect for Jim Caviezel as both a fantastic actor and as a person who I believe is truly good down to his soul. No one is going to agree with everything that every other person believes or does. But Jim Caviezel lives his faith every single day. He does not go around hitting us over the head talking about it, but rather shows us in the way he lives his life. You can see that he has genuine love and concern for everyone around him - his family, his friends, his cast mates, his fans and strangers, even the media - which he avoids but doesn’t diss. I am proud of him and proud to be a fan. We Irrelevants are so lucky to have him as the leading man of the best show on network television.
Very well said, both of you whitlockienterprisespresents and also mamahub. I had the same issue and similar thoughts floating around in my head and this sort of helped me putting my thoughts in order. So thank you for doing that ; )
In Extremis can come!
I personally really appreciate the Irrelevants in this fandom. They approach different points of view with openness, fairness and a mature focus for the big picture of humanity. Respect for each other avoids hate that only hurts.
This is an excellent post, which everybody should read!
I had thought about the very same issue ever since I discovered that he played Reese, but you all have said it much better than I could have done, so: THANK YOU!
And I agree about the fandom as well. It truly is something special and I’m happy that I found it!

I’m loving every moment of it and hope for much more of the same! :-)

I was just re-tagging my POI live-blog posts, so that I will find them again later, and realized that today 17 days ago, I started watching the show. Since then, I managed to:
And that all in less than 3 weeks, despite being insanely busy and certainly having no time for fandom, much less a new one.
Yeah, I got it really, really bad and am still head over heels in love with the show, its actors and just (pretty much) every single aspect of it and just can’t get enough.
Of course, I wouldn’t want to change it! :-)
Perfect show, brilliant cast, amazing writing and a lovely fandom! What more could I ask for?
♥ The terrific four!
Don’t judge me!
And that’s why I love this fandom nearly as much as the show! It’s nice, funny, and just all around fabulous!
That is a very good question.
They should have plenty of free time seeing that they don’t need to spend hours watching and reading stuff, they don’t have to wait eagerly for something fandom-related to arrive with the post, don’t get their hearts ripped out and broken by fictional characters, etc. etc. etc.
Nope, I don’t want to trade with them :-)
THIS IS THE MOST BEAUTIFUL THING I HAVE EVER LAID EYES ON
