So, Scandal, you guys. SCANDAL. Is that a show or what? I finished it a couple weeks ago and am still recovering. Of course, now I’m annoyed, because I haaaate watching shows weekly. You just can’t get any momentum going. And a disappointing episode becomes so much more disappointing when you have to wait another week for a new one. But you can’t really hold out, either, because people post spoilers and … ugh.
Completed shows sometimes aren’t any better, though, because once you get to the end, it’s the END. There will never be any more. It’s so final. And sad, usually. I mean, I just went through The Office finale a month ago and now I’m finishing up The West Wing. (Which I started watching almost a year ago.) Big farewell episodes unnecessarily play on my already huge feeling of nostalgia and I just weep the whole time. I started crying with six episodes to go. (To be fair, it was a funeral episode.)
I have no idea where to go now. Old show? New one? My list of current shows is getting up there and I’m not sure how many I can watch. I’ve got Mad Men, Top Chef (can’t give it up!), The Good Wife, Downton Abbey…then the half hours: Modern Family, Go On (you have to watch that, seriously, so good), and probably something else I’m missing.
Oh! Scandal, of course. So what’s my new ‘mainlining’ show? Something I can watch many, many episodes of when I’m supposed to be in bed sleeping. Any recommendations? Despite the two comedies (and a reality show) on my list, I’m a drama girl.
