I was one of the last people I knew to watch Gilmore Girls. I never got into it while it was on the air. No idea why, I just didn’t. So after it had already gone off the air, and because my daughter started to watch it and told me that I would love it because Lorelei was basically my spirit animal, I started to watch it. And of course I loved it. Of course I did.
Back when I was hard core into ER, Grey’s Anatomy started to air. I didn’t watch it because I had loved Chicago Hope and I LOVED ER and I adamantly refused to be sucked into another hospital show, especially ones with characters named “McDreamy”. I thought it was trite. So I didn’t watch it.
But…that same daughter about a week and a half ago got me into watching it. It’s on netflix. I’m not working, so I can binge watch when I’m not writing. And of course I got into it right before the HUGE character kill off that just happened. Thanks facebook for spoiling that for me.
Anyway, I’m watching this stupid show and half the time I’m crying because people die on it in like, every episode and there is a LOT about heart problems. It all hits close to home. I hate Derek for the way he constantly jerks Meredith around and won’t let her go when she asks him to and always keeps her just a little bit in love with him. I don’t like Alex and I can’t understand why Burke is such an ass to Christina sometimes. But I am in, I’m involved and I’m committed now. Dammit.
Any shows you were late to the party for? Any shows you love, or love to hate or hate to love?
