On second thoughts...

I've decided that all that telly stuff I talked about last night deserves a dedicated home, rather than being lumped in here with my self pitying rubbish. So was born The Impossible Quest.

This place will be reserved for my occasional whinges.

So check out the other one. Or don't. It's up to you.

Okay, so I decided that this blog needed a point. I weighed up the many and varied subjects upon which I am a noted authority. I came up blank.

Cut to now, many moons later and a decision has been reached.I have for quite some many years been engaged in a pointless, doomed to failure quest. One which has seen me endure countless hours of mind numbing tedium and toe curling embarrassment, but also many moments of teary eyed emotion, floor rolling laughter, and edge of seat tension. Yes, I have vowed to watch every episode ever made, of every television show ever made, in the sci-fi, fantasy, and horror genres.

It's hard, especially since the miracle that is Sky+ has been stripped away from me for quite some time now and there is no telling when I shall have it back, but I have persevered.

Don't get me wrong. The sci-fi genre is not my only TV love. I also have a similar completist mentality in regards to American Prime Time Soaps, Cop/Doc Shows, and Sitcoms. Sci-fi comes first though, and if it comes down to a choice it will always come out on top.

So I shall post on here, at no particular time, on no particular day, about whatever random progress I've made on the quest. Some of the shows will be current household names, others will be more obscure but hopefully I can be half way interesting about nearly all of them. Even the shit ones.

Of course, there will also still be occasional posts that have nothing whatsoever to do with TV, and are just me whining about something no-one cares about.

A warning. There will be no screen grabs on this blog. There will be no embedded video clips. There will be no bright shiny colours at all. There will simply be big reams of text. Sorry, but there is a very big, very important technical reason for this. I haven't the foggiest clue how to do any of that stuff. At some point down the line, that may change but knowing my technical capabilities the way I do I wouldn't hold my breath.
