Most popular fandoms on Fan History year to date

July 1st, 2009

Half the year has passed so it is time to do an update as to the most popular fandoms on Fan History for January to June 2009. Items on this list list tend to appear for three reasons: 1) Interest in the fandom, 2) Quality content, 3) Good SEO. Because of the latter two, I don’t think that you can draw any conclusion about what is going on in fandom as a result. Hopefully, one day, we’ll be there where you can.

CSI: The Movie?

April 21st, 2009

The CSI fangirl in me is all excited by this:

Source

“CSI fans take heart: A feature-length movie is in the cards, and it’s definitely going to involve Gil Grissom, according to William Petersen.

“Yes, there will be a movie,” Petersen told Britain’s Radio Times. Although he is sure fans might be “a little trepidatious,” Petersen promises the move to the big screen will not be done haphazardly.

“Usually people leave it till a series has finished —they did that with The X-Files and Sex and the City,” Petersen said. “But it’s about finding the right story, there has got to be a real reason to do it.”

One of those real reasons? Grissom won’t be around forever. “You don’t just do it because you want to make money — you do it because there’s a story that can’t be told on TV and needs to be told from CSI’s perspective and the audience wants it,” Petersen said. “And we can’t wait for CSI to end or Grissom will be about 90.”

Petersen bowed out of the hit CBS drama after eight years earlier this season, handing over the reins to Laurence Fishburne’s Raymond Langston. He had previously said his character’s open-ended departure preserved the chance of a film.”

If we’re getting it, I want it to be the continuing adventures of Grissom/Sara so I can watch more of Jorja Fox on the screen.  If she’s not involved or it doesn’t continue that arc while including Grissom…  No wait.  I know my fandom.  No matter which way that goes down, people will have massive hate on.  I’m not certain I see this as a good idea as a result because I’m not certain the audience will turn out for a movie if it doesn’t fit their ideal.  Money matters and shelling out with out the reward of your favorite characters or ships?  I can’t see it happening.

Trying to give CSI a chance in a post Grissom era…

January 23rd, 2009

I was a huge Sara fan and I’ve kind of been struggling since then to keep my interest in the show. I liked Grissom as my third favorite character behind Catherine. So this has been a real blow. I’m really trying to give it a chance because nothing else has yet so spark for me in terms of liking it more and wanting a new obsession.

Back when the show first started, Sara was the character that producers said was a vehicle for fans to help understand what was going on. “Yay! This is so cool!” and being an outsider to some of the early character related drama going on, giving her/our perspective on how things should be handled. (Warrick should be fired. He was gambling when he should have been at a scene.)

Ray Langston feels like that. Only stepping back and taking us back to review the process that these guys that we love actually do. Here is how we fingerprint. Here is how we interact with the people. See, this is why we don’t get involved because it comes back to hurt us. Blah. I just. I don’t want that sort of character. Or maybe I’d take it better if the character who I perceived as being a vehicle for our interaction as fans was more enthusiastic, more knowledge and heck, to a certain degree, more attractive to me on a personal level.

The whole economic situation is really depressing in life outside watching this show. Lots of people are dealing with family stress as a result of fall out. It is cold and flu season. The weather is crappy. I know CSI is a crime show and we are watching people dealing with crime, being victims of crime and not always happy endings in terms of dealing with the bad guy but Ray Langston just feels like a downer of a character. I want almost a happier character rather than continuing down a road that’s sad and depressing. We’ve had so much of that for the past season and a half. As a viewer, I’m not sure how much I can take before I just tune out because I don’t have the fundamental pieces that were why I started regularly tuning in in the first place, if I don’t have those character where I have that established relationship with.

So while I’m willing to give it a chance, I’m not sure how long that chance will last. And if the fan fiction community that has kept me watching since Sara departed and Grissom was rumored to be leaving stop writing new stories? I’m really gone.

What do David Tennant, Allison Stokke, David Hewlett and Russel Crowe have in common?

December 23rd, 2008

They were our most visited actor fandom articles recently!

We’ve been really busy at Fan History promoting articles in the actor fandoms category. Most of this promotion has gone on in three locations: LiveJournal, Chickipedia, FanPop. We started it about a week ago and stopped this morning. This led to a number of really good edits to articles.

Anyway, after this week of blitzing the actor fandom categories, we were interested to see which articles got the most visits. The following is a list of articles that got the most visits:

And lot of the visits we got led to people not just visiting those articles but other articles on Fan History so we’re really happy. If you know anything about actor fandoms, check out the category and start editing articles! We’d really appreciate it!

CSI fandom, canon and me

August 26th, 2008

I love CSI and I love the fandom.  There are some truly fantastic people involved in the fan community.  The show itself rocks hardcore.  Because of the quality of the source material, the fans have a lot to work with.  It is one of the reasons I love the show and its fandom.

Totally excited about the new season premiere.  I’ve watched the trailer about 10 times on YouTube and courtesy of TiVo catching the trailer on an episode of Big Brother.  Sara’s back! It might only be for an episode (actually two if the spoilers for the season are right) but Sara has been my reason to watch the show almost from the start.  It gives the show some continuity plot wise.  It makes the show more believable.  And with the potential for some Grissom/Sara moments…  YEAH!  I’m hoping that my favorite fan fiction writers will be inspired to write and write more and give me post episode wonderfulness.

Because there hasn’t been much wonderfulness.  I was chatting with one of my best fandom friends who writes work I absolutely adore.  Both of us are big Sara Sidle fans.  She’s also a big Gil Grissom fan.  The departure of Jorja Fox, the lack of her appearing on the show consistently because of that departure, the lack of Jora Fox being on television on a weekly basis the news that William Petersen is leaving the show, the rumors that Gil Grissom might pick up with another woman, Gary Dourdan leaving, Warrick Brown dying, new characters coming in, Ronie Lake not appearing much after being brought in, other cast change rumors, Catherine/Warrick not having been dealt with much before he died, these all add up together to make it hard to find inspiration to create fanworks based on CSI.  Canon is bound to have so many changes and things are so unresolved now in a way that is uncomfortable.  …   Uncomfortable rather than exciting.  Babylon 5′s plot which could involve people dying or disappearing or totally changing was exciting.  You wanted to see these changes.  CSI is not.  It is episodic television to a degree.  It isn’t arc driven.  It is, at times, character driven.  The changes going on thus aren’t pleasurable and something that makes me want to watch.  So yeah.  Not inspired.  I’m likely to watch but not with the same committment.  (And thanks to the power of TiVo, if I miss an episode, no big deal.  If some one says it is exciting, I can go back and watch it later.)  I just… wish it wasn’t this way because I love my Grissom/Sara fan fiction.  I love my community.  I love my canon.   Others seem to be drifting or less interested. If I lose that,  if others are less involved, I’ll be adrift with out a fandom and that will add to my fandom sadness.

While on the topic of CSI, I bought the CSI video game for my wii.  I figured it would be a nice extension of my love of CSI and help rekindle my interest.  The cast was on the cover. It was a wii game and wii seems much more exciting than the PC version.  The game sadly makes no use of the niftiness of the wii.  For Sara Sidle, the voice isn’t that of Jorja Fox.  Woe. :(   Not an awesome game and doesn’t look like it will accomplish my goal in having bought it.  Wish I had read the reviews before I purchased.
