TV/Movie Moments That Made me "Fan-Gasm"

When you're a kid it's easy to get excited when a new movie or show or even toy is coming out based on something you love. But as you get older, you outgrow things. Few adults get excited at the latest toys and when a movie or TV show comes out it's hard to get to excited about it without coming off as immature. I'm not saying you can't get excited it's just not the same way as when you're very young. However, once in awhile a scene will pop up which just grabs that inner child within you and you can't help having a "fangasm".  Oh and no i am not talking about that show from a few years ago. Because of course there was a show with that name. I am discussing the moments that almost make you forget your not a kid anymore! 

I have actually been sitting on this one for a while because, well, it's embarrassing. Especially when you are watching with friends who may not share your passion, causing you to wonder the big deal it. oR when you know the product realty isn't worth the accolade, but the scene or even line just hits you the right way. The criteria for this is simple, it has to be a franchise I loved a kid and the reaction had to come from watching something when I was much older. 

Smallville Ending

Yes I know, I know. Smallville wasn't the best show. The final couple years weren't that good. The finale was a disappointment to a lot of fans because we didn't really see Tom Welling in the suit (my theory is it's because he looked stupid in it). I get all that. But when I saw the final scene of him changing with that John Williams score blasting away, sorry but I couldn't help but eat it up.

Star Trek TOS Overview (Turnabout Intruder)

Well my friends, we made it. 79 episodes and we finally got to the final one produced and aired. Is it good? Do I really need to answer that?

Star Trek TOS Overview (All Our Yesterdays)

 Just two more episodes let and today we have one that is often considered one of the highlights of season 3. However, I've never ben able to get into it. Let's see if we figure out why.

Star Trek TOS Overview (The Savage Curtain)

 Here we have an episode that is infamous for its goofy gimmick. And I can't really blame anyone for snickering at the idea the show opens with. They got away with the Enterprise running into Apollo and even Flint yesterday, but Abraham Lincoln? Groan.

Star Trek TOS Overview (Requiem for Methuselah)

So after two horid episodes can we get a good one today? Just maybe. This is one that some may like, but I never got into. It's a Kirk romance story but easily the worst.

Star Trek TOS Overview (The Way to Eden)

 Well folks we made it. My candidate for worst Trek episode of them all. At least "Spock's Brain" and "And the Children Shall Lead" are so bad they're good. Even "Plato's Stepchildren" managed a moment or two. This is stupid on every level. I get that it was the 60's and the episode was reflecting the times, but man did have to be so awful?
