Making the world a better place, one show at a time.

I guess you would like to know a little bit about the person making all these proclamations upon good taste and horrid characters. I'm Andrea and when I was 15 I fell in love. An hour after meeting "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" I was forever altered in the way only love can, and I never questioned for one minute afterwards that television offered me an amazing chance to experience lives and moments that I could never imagine. So now, when I'm not getting distracted by my real life, I write about TV. I also read, am finishing a Master's degree in English Literature, travel, am attempting to learn vegan cooking, am the 5th of 6 children, and drive my roommate nuts by constantly cleaning our already clean apartment. Now that we're old friends, time for you to take my opinions as the be all and end all.

I Made a Promise

The summer is here again, and a whole TV season has come and gone with very little commentary from me. Do I not care to write anymore? Have I suddenly developed interests that command more love than that I have for the idiot-box? Has every show sucked so badly that I have no intention of picking up my remote again?

The real question is: do you give a shite?

The answer is no, you don't, and you shouldn't. (The answer to the above questions is no, also, just in case you do care.) Why I have been the world's worst critic and blogger is of no concern. The past is the past, time to concentrate on the future.

So, as I catch up on this last season, I will write up my general thoughts and complaints. As dearly loved summer series air I will do my best to nit-pick and obsess over what could be or what should be. With god as my witness, I will never go silent again.

Oh, and that promise...yikes, I hate this. 4 years ago I made a promise to a friend that when Lost ended I would watch the whole thing. I was trying to be a good friend, give that person the benefit of the doubt, and I did this when Season 2 was getting trashed in reviews, so I thought it would be cancelled that year. Joke's on me. So my big project this summer is to make it through all 114 episodes. I might die. But if I do, my conscience will be clear that I have tried to stand by my commitments.

But I will need lots of breaks from this project with wonderful fluff like Drop Dead Diva.

YES!!!! And I heart Margaret Cho but only because she's Korean. hahaha. also, Lost, i'm over it.

I have to admit that I didn't really dig Margaret Cho before, but I love her on DDD.

I have watched 15 episodes of Lost, and I am doubting my resolve to get through it. We can talk at the farm.

I am doing the same thing with LOST this summer. Almost done with Season 1 and it is SO annoying! It will be interesting to see if any questions were answered. I watched the 2nd half of this last season, including the finale, so it is sort of interesting to see how it all started!

The TV Girl said...

Mo, I got stuck at S1E15, and haven't watched anymore. I am going to try this weekend to finish S1. How is your Lost project going?

I am onto the 2nd season. I start to like it, then I have all these unanswered questions, and then I hate it all over again. Vicious, vicious cycle!
