End of Year Fandom Meme 2020

End of Year Fandom Meme 2019

Another year, another end of year fandom meme. (If you want to do it yourself I've got easy copy / paste at my masterlist post.)



Which TV shows did you start watching this year?

The Haunting of Bly Manor, The Curse of Oak Island, Craith, In Search Of..., The Fall, In Search of Aliens, Murder Mountain, Diagnosis, Real Detective, Liar, etc, etc, etc.

The Curse of Oak Island



Which TV shows did you mean to get into but didn't this year? Why?

I cancelled my TV licence so I've had to say goodbye to the BBC at home. I did it with a heavy heart but, given the poor choice of programming, it made better sense for us to subscribe to Disney+ instead and save money.



Which TV show impressed you most this year?

Craith (Hidden). I watched both series of it during the first lockdown and they were amazingly good. S4C has produced some awesome stuff over the years, to be fair, they should make much more of their back catalogue imo.

Craith



Your favourite TV show of the year?

Ancient Aliens. Often dumb but always fun!

Ancient Aliens



Your favourite film you watched this year?

I've been keeping track of my progress on my 33 by 33 Films post. I've been enjoying lots of Disney movies from the vaults, and the Will Ferrell Eurovision film was ridiculously good fun. Overall I think my favourite has to be the new Mulan film - even without any singing!

Mulan



Your main fandom of the year?

I mostly wrote for Detroit: Become Human. The new Reed900 fan film was released in the summer which was great too, like seeing a fanfic brought to the big screen.

Detroit Evolution



Your favourite book read this year?

I've only read non-fiction and kids' books this year!



Favourite male character of the year?

I've been enjoying the Larry and Paul comedy sketches, especially their 'real' government briefings...




Favourite female character of the year?

Hayley Mills. Because she always played basically the same character - wholesome girl who nonetheless gets into trouble. I saw The Moon-Spinners for the first time this year which I think now completes my Mills filmography!

Hayley Mills



Your biggest fan anticipations for the coming year?

I'm looking forward to the new Cruella movie. Who knows, we might even be able to see it in a cinema...

Cruella 2021



Your favourite album or song to listen to this year?

Patent Pending. I've listened to them so much this year, especially Punk Rock Songs.




The fandom you haven't tried yet, but want to?

I don't have any - but am open to suggestions. :)



Your biggest squee moment of the year?

The Christopher Robin film is one of the most heartwarming things I've ever seen.

Christopher Robin



Your best new fandom discovery of the year?

The Haunting of Bly Manor was great, and I totally cried like a baby at Dani and Jamie's love story. But Viola as the weird faceless lady of the lake, forever doomed to repeat the same motions over and over again, was creepy perfection.

The Haunting of Bly Manor



Your biggest fandom disappointment of the year?

Marianna's newfound love of the Super Pops. It's not even that terrible, she just insists on watching it over and over and over and over again...

I've also got a couple of kids' books I didn't want to part with - The Squirrel and Little Owl Book of Pets . The unwieldy size of my bookmark folders convinced me I needed a reference post for online magazine archives. Or, more accurately, free online magazine archives.

50 Free Welsh Language Resources

Unlike literacy and maths, Welsh really isn't a subject we'll be using everyday without a concerted effort to do so. Every morning we've been doing three Duolingo lessons with Marianna - challenging for me and repetition of basic words and concepts for her - and then watching a couple of Welsh language cartoons to listen to the rhythm of the words and so on. Here is a list of free Welsh language resources from around the web, ranging from GCSE revision guides to adult basics to children's cartoons uploaded to YouTube. Hopefully you'll be able to mix and match to suit your own needs over the next few weeks and months. (I'd normally direct people to places like Sain Wales to buy hard copy media, but they're closed for the duration and we should try to lighten the load on the postal service to essentials besides.)

Simply Cook Review

I kept seeing ads and deals for Simply Cook everywhere, so as there was a special offer on at OhMyDosh! Rewards (£3 for the box and £3.50 cashback) I figured I had nothing to lose by giving it a try. What Is It? Recipe kits packed into boxes which fit through your letterbox. The usual price is £9.99 for a kit of 4, with each one serving 2-4 people depending on your serving sizes. All you need to do is buy the fresh ingredients required and follow the instructions. Here is Simply Cook's own helpful diagram: Does It Work? For me, as the person just eating it, it was awesome. Everything tasted great - the mushroom penne in particular was so good I went back for seconds - and I liked that the sauces weren't as rich as Anthony would usually make them. For Anthony, who cooked them, they weren't as impressive. He complained that the food was bland and that it was actually quite a lot of faff, as Lidl didn't stock everything we needed which meant another trip ou
