I've been sitting here trying to rack my brain about what to write about. I've settled down in my pjs. New ones none the less, well not brand new ones but a fresh pair since the last three days I have basically been living in mine. I've got the tv going and then it dawns on me...
Why am I a fan of shows that have been canceled?
I always seem to miss the boat on awesome shows and then back track my way through. Lucky for me there are a lot of awesome shows on netflix that I can catch up at my pace one at a time. Without having to worry about renting or buying dvds. My current fascination is Ghost Whisperer. Which is odd for me since I don't do scary. But here I am with the tv on, and the light off. I am convincing myself that I am being brave. I didn't even know the show was canceled until I googled it.
I have a long list of shows I love that are no longer on the air. Back in the day when I had a free Sunday to myself I would pick a season on DVD and watch the day way while knitting. This last Christmas I finally broke down and bought the M*A*S*H collection and that series ended in the 80's! I have seen every episode multiple times and can quote them.
Buffy was another one I came into the last season and had to work my way forward on. That was really confusing trying to figure out where in the heck her sister came from. I came into scrubs the fifth season and love that series. Even though the whole writers strike thing mucked up that one season. Gilmore girls is another one I have on dvd. Or at least the first three seasons. Once they start to write only for ratings I get impatient with the story lines and find another show.
As of late I haven't really had much time to find new shows or reminisce with my old ones. Since I gave the elliptical some time off the Tv has snuck in as my new B.f.F. Too bad we will have to break off our love affair once I start feeling better. But for now I will enjoy my show here in the dark. That is until I hear a noise and scare myself.
