Lucifer

And of course, just as Lucifer gets interesting again after a bit of hit-and-miss season, it gets cancelled. So very sad.

I'm just hoping they didn't decide to end the season (and now series) on a cliffhanger.

ETA: And here's an article about the upcoming cliffhanger. Well, maybe someone will write a proper fic ending.

Madam Secretary: Elizabeth

Independence

Wow, Madam Secretary, that's really not what I was expecting you to do. At all. But it could be an interesting season. (And now I see why they've steered clear of using actual party names.)

And now that I have some idea how the season will look, I guess I can write that section of my Yuletide letter!

The Good Old Days

One of the things I miss from my days in a megafandom is knowing that no matter what I want to know, there's a good chance that some other, more dedicated fan has already researched it, analyzed it, and written it up in detail. When I was in Stargate fandom and was struck by idle curiosity about, say, what the various characters' military ribbons meant, why, someone else had already done all the work of figuring it out! I think there might even have been a chart, with pictures.

Small fandoms, sadly, don't get that kind of attention, which is why I'm now wondering why they had Dmitri wearing a major's insignia when they were calling him a captain, with no real way of finding out. (Or was it supposed to be a junior lieutenant's insignia and he was later promoted? But it looks like a major's insignia, at least if I'm interpreting Wikipedia correctly. Ivan had a captain's insignia, so clearly they did some research and Dmitri's insignia was deliberate. But why?) (ETA: And apparently both Dmitri and Ivan were wearing Air Force patches? Despite Dmitri being described as an army captain and Ivan describing himself as an army captain. And then there are the Ministry of Justice patches. How does that all fit together?)

Sleepy Hollow: Abbie

Blank Slate

It looks like Sleepy Hollow and Saving Hope are both trying to reboot their shows a little bit. They've both resolved a bunch of old plotlines--especially Sleepy Hollow--and whittled their casts down. I assume we'll be getting some new characters as the season progresses.

I'm enjoying both so far.
