I have loved watching this show develop for the five years of it's existence. It was always the lesser bastard child of AMC which was the home of Breaking Bad and still has a monster hit with The Walking Dead. This was the ONLY show worth watching on Saturday nights for years. With the final six episodes of Season 5 to go, all bets are off and all debts WILL be paid in full before the final Golden Spike is hammered into place. I will miss this one very much when it is gone but I am happy to have enjoyed it for as long as I have. I always liked that the entire production was filmed about 100 miles from where I live in Alberta and that real life events like the big flood a few years back were incorporated into the storyline. She show was good for the Alberta film and television industry as well. You can see the quality in every bit of the production design.
I forever stand vigilant to protect this planet from the myriad of forces that are always against us. Be it the octopus, zombies, aliens or the robots my team of human agents, and our feline allies, circle the globe in a never ending struggle for human freedom.
I learn all I can on every subject that interests me. I especially enjoy ancient history because in the past there are valuable lessons to be found. Also, if I ever get my time machine to work properly, it would be good to know a bit about possible destinations and what to expect when I get there.
I greatly appreciate beautiful design. Be it manufactured or found naturally I am fascinated by the process of invention. I am attracted to the unique, the strange, the haunted. I like to share what I find on this blog.
And not let us forget the 'Cephalopod Menace' who, if allowed to, would wrap their tentacles around all that is good and pure in this life and crush it until it remained no more. They are creatures of pure spite. Hate is all they know. Death is all they do. They are our most ruthless and determined enemy.
So we fight. Selena has the celebrity contacts, the cat is ruthless and without pity, Roosevelt's ghost has the experience and I do the wetwork.
Fighting for the future of the planet doesn't have to be a chore, however. We can take the time to appreciate all that is cool in this world even as we cut the octopus into bite sized chunks.
This is the reason there has always been and must forever be, a Cave of Cool. Be sure to wipe your feet before you enter.
