Whenever I rewatch first season, I fall in love with FK again.  
I love first season Forever Knight. :-) Especially that sweet middle block from "Dying to Know You" through "Dying for Fame," but really all of it.

Not that we don't all know this about me as an abstract intellectual fact, but I mention it because I was just re-watching "Cherry Blossoms" and feeling the delight of one smart scene after another, in the freedom of that canonical moment. Sure, yes, the episode has its costuming, continuity and script fumbles; it's not perfect. But it's really, really, really good. Like first season as a whole.

The second and third seasons present problems to be solved; they need us! The first season is just about just right exactly as it is.

I do love this way of putting it. :-)

Poor second and third season. They lost the network money and Stonetree, and resuscitated Lacroix (and unintentionally all he stood for). They lost the freedom of syndication and Cohen, Janette and Schanke. They forgot that Nick wasn't looking for an easier way, but for a better way!

People write and read fanfic for so many, many different reasons. But I doubt I'd still feel its pull in FK as I do if FK weren't ... such a challenge to itself.
