Sometimes, I wish things were real

Yesterday, we were watching Defiance, and at the end, I started to think.  Part of me wished that the show were real, so I could learn more about the Votan cultures.  The show writers give us brief glimpses into these cultures, but I'd love to know more.  But I know the cultures are made up, and I'll only know as much as the writers want us to know.
We all know that the show is fiction, but I do get that feeling often.

When I was young, my greatest wish was to move to Endor and live with the Ewoks.  I also wanted to be a Jedi.

Now, I wouldn't say that I am depressed that I can't go to Pandora.  But I do get a little sad that I can sail to Middle Earth and hand out in Rivendell, or wander into my wardrobe and get into Narnia.  
Do you ever feel that way?  What places that don't exist would you like to visit?  What fictional characters would you like to talk to?

I know I'm not the only one....
