Greetings. I have a question that I have been longing to ask for awhile. How has being a member of an online fandom changed your viewing of the show? In other words, prior to joining sites like this one, did you watch the show(s) with different expectations? For example: Before joining Talk CSI (and reading fanfiction before that), I held an entirely different view of CSI. I didn't care about who was getting more screen time than someone else, I wasn't interested in ships, and a thirst for spoilers didn't exist. I watched it for the ensemble cast equally and it was the cases that held my focus. Since becoming a member of the online fandom, that has changed. I had to choose a favorite character, ships that I was partial to, and an unhealthy addiction to spoilers. :lol: I now watch episodes looking for things that I wouldn't have before. I'm now more focused on characters than cases. I'm not saying this is negative or positive. It just is. Has this happened to anyone else? Have your perceptions of CSI and it's spin-offs altered? I know this is kind of a weird question. Any responses would be greatly appreciated.
