, from aaaaaages ago.The story: A supernatural glitch in your DVR occurs. At first you panic, hitting lots of random buttons on your remote control, but then are RELIEVED to discover that no, your entire series recording of Golden Girls has not been deleted! But then, just as things appear to be back to normal, there's a puff of smoke, and a fairy appears! You have apparently freed the TV fairy from a televised hell in which she was made to watch endless reruns of Are You Hot?, and as fairies tend to be when freed, she is very grateful and wants to grant you magic wishes.
Now, the fairy has only TV-related powerz, and so she offers you the chance to go back in time and retroactively CHANGE the history of your favorite TV shows with 3.5 wishes!You can go back in time and erase from the fabric of TV history THREE individual episodes of any TV show you want! The rest of the series(es) will not be altered. What do you choose?
1) Stargate Atlantis: Irresponsible - ok, Lucius was bad enough for one episode, but two? No thank you. Also, Kolya? Made of awesome people, don't let him die!!
2) Buffy: Buffy Vs. Dracula - pretty cool episode title, but the episode itself sucks. Really sucks.
3) ER: Dear Abby - so, by now, I'm
mostly kinda sorta
totally fine about the whole Abby/Luka thing, but Carter breaking up with Abby via a truly hideous letter was unnecessary and completely ruined his character for me.You can go back in time and revive ONE unfairly cancelled television show and return it to the annals of TV history!* *CHOOSE WISELY, because if you attempt to revive more than one show, the wish will backfire and you'll instead be treated to a whole bunch of crappy made-for-TV "reunion" movies full of replacement actors.
Well, I hope that a whole bunch of other people are doing this and reviving Firefly, because I have to go with Sports Night.To balance out the historical TV viewing schedule, you now have the power to retroactively CANCEL, at any point during the series, any one show! Alternately, you can weild your destructive might and DELETE one whole entire series from ever having been made.
I'm deleting Alias about five minutes before the end of 'The Telling' to stop Lauren from ever existing and Irina from being evil and everything like that. She wasn't dead for two years guys - it just didn't happen!LIFE AND DEATH! You can now bring ONE character back from the dead... and, to restore the balance, you must also kill off a character! They don't have to be from the same fandom.
Killed: Oh god, so many choices. Um, probably Ziva (NCIS), to be honest – I can watch around most other characters, but not her.
Revived: Kate from NCIS - her death made me stop watching the show, so if we bring her back then I have a whole season and a half or something of TV to catch up on.
Bonus tradeoff: you can delete a single scene, relationship pairing or plot arc from any series that gave you hives... AND you can plug in any one [scene, pairing, plot arc] that you never got to see!
Doomed Plot Arc: Sports Night, the whole of The Dating Plan plot arc.
Should Totally Have Happened Plot Arc: NCIS, Kate's not so much dead as in Witness Protection, and comes back. That would've been awesome
Send the fairy to some other DVRs: um, xfirefly9x
