A Look Into my reaction to the end of long running science fiction shows with lego indiana jones
For me there has always been a long running sci-fi series to segment my year; but now for the first time I stand alone staring into an empty chasm, limply holding my well worn remote with no idea what button to press as I point it into the void. Of course, every now and again a special may arise or even an episode I may have missed but this time as the programme announcer say's with such conviction, ‘that's it for ever' I feel like life has had it's stabilisers removed.
So what now ?
If I try to analyse my existence I may end up like Reginald Perrin without the nudity. If I try to latch on to another area of entertainment I know I will be disappointed and fall back to this stage again.
Would life be any richer if I'd have gone and seen a once in a lifetime performance at Blues Alley rather than cheer to myself as Worf dislocated Riker's shoulder in the Holodeck.
Would my career still be like a dragon's rotting faeces after consuming the charred ash remains of it's own faeces if I could have been bothered to go and see Bill Bailey perform in his early days down the local arts centre instead of thinking life would never be the same since Jean-Luc Picard had a good old cry about been temporarily assimilated into Locutus of Borg. Granted, he did also lose his nephew in a fire but I didn't see James T. winging about been allergic to retinox 5. (pussy).
Perhaps all these years I should have been looking in between the lines. Would I have taken Dr. McCoy's antique bifocals or just winged why I was the only one allergic to retinox. Would I be sneaking around the NCC-1701-D in the early hours of the morning from replicator to replicator making and then stashing toupe's in easy accessible points in various Jefferies tubes because Beverly Crusher couldn't cure my baldness, or would I just get on with life and dye my remaining few hairs blond to disguise it.
Well, the only thing I saw in between the lines was all the imaginary parts I created in these shows for myself. In my head I was the one who held Kirk's hand as he said, "Oh my" and copped it.
And when I told a joke to SG1's Teal'c, it was me, (not MacGyver) and only me that made him raise an eyebrow and say, "Indeed"
The truth is that these people only know me through the restraining orders I get through the post via their solicitors.
But in conclusion their still the best friends I've ever had.
So, instead of stepping into the chasm alone and with a slight fusty odour, I'll set up camp at the edge and wait. . . . . . . . Just in case. . . . .
