baleanoptera: (The Wire Omar)
I'm stuck writing a paper and so I'm procrastinating and talking about fandom instead.
Snagged this from [livejournal.com profile] wildtiger7 who tagged me with Band of Brothers, BSG & The Wire

Comment and I will give you 3 fandoms and then you have to answer these questions.

1. What got you into this fandom in the first place?
2. Do you think that you'll stay in this fandom or eventually move on?
3. Favorite episodes/books/movies/etc.?
4. Do you participate in this fandom (fan fiction, graphics, discussions)?
5. Do you think that more people should get into this fandom?

Old men forget; yet all shall be forgot,
But he'll remember, with advantages,
What feats he did that day.




While being ill I have had the opportunity to re-watch the series Band of Brothers. And yes, it’s a great series and yes, it’s very well made – but I’m always a little puzzled by its reputation as a historical docu-drama. Several channels have shown it in conjuncture with World War 2 documentaries, thereby giving the impression that the series itself is a fact program. It’s not. Agreed, it’s based on historical facts, and great care has gone into the props and look of the show. Most of the characters and events are based on the memories of soldiers participating in WW2, but all of this has been shaped into a cohesive narrative with a clear beginning, middle and end. In short it has been turned into fiction.  )
