SF&F AV CONTEST: No Respect (the under-appreciated)

"I'm telling ya, I get no respect!" ~ Rodney Dangerfield.

First off, thanks for the votes! It was a very narrow victory indeed. For this week, since we just did "Great idea, bad execution," I thought we'd go with the under-appreciated, the ignored, the dishonored of the Sci-Fi/fantasy world. What show, movie, book, comic, etc. do you think has not gotten the respect it deserved? You may even use specific characters or episodes, if you like.

I can't wait to see what you come up with!

I'll put the poll up Friday evening.

*eta: here's my entry--The Iron Giant, which, in my opinion, is woefully unappreciated.

Re: SF&F AV CONTEST: No Respect (the under-appreciated)

With just six epsiodes, kicked around by a strike and a franchise loss, I think mine got 'no respect' despite more than deserving it!

And if anyone recognises this, I did a very similar avatar months ago. This one has been resized because the earlier version was made for the old BBS.

So it's technically new.

Od0! I was just thinking about you because I hadn't seen a post from you in a while.

Though, if you like the relaunch, I think Quark did pretty well for himself even though they aren't canon.
