June 2003

Idea: to compile a list of current stories, meaning any tv series, book or movie with a continuing narrative that I'm reading/watching and haven't yet reached the end of:

24 (in the middle of S2)
Angel (waiting for S5)
Firefly (cancelled after ep. 10)
Hellsing (at ep. 8)
LOTR The Two Towers (1/4th remaining)
Stellvia of the Universe (at ep. 6)
Samurai Jack (at ep. 4, ignoring horrible Dutch dubs on tv)
Six Feet Under (waiting for S2)
The Day of the Triffids (only a few pages left)
The Matrix Trilogy (waiting for Revolutions)
The Quiet American (paused halfway)
The Sopranos (somewhere in S3, currently rewatching S2)
Wolf's Rain (at ep. 14)

Also, sort of:
Aeon Flux (still haven't seen all eps to be able to fully comprehend the story overall world view)
Ghost In The Shell: Stand Alone Complex (at ep. 14; if there is an overencompassing story arc, it's rather subtle)

No Enterprise? It's at least mildly entertaining.

You should add Spielberg's 'Taken' to that list. You'll love it.

Already watched the whole thing on BBC2, so it doesn't count as a current story :)

Charmed (waiting for S6)

Regarding Enterprise: I guess I've been spoilt by Firefly... can't get over the whole "sound in the vacuum of space" thing.

+ the bad dialog and cliched plots, of course.

Don't think Aeon Flux has a continuing narrative. Each episode has its own story...

milov wrote on 2003/06/02:
Okay. But there are definitely general themes and cross-episode references. I'm only missing two or three eps, I think.

Check out for interesting discussions and occasional postings by Peter Chung himself.

Thought of another addition:
Oz (no idea what season)

And yet another:
Scribbly (daily comic in )
