So, I have started watching the Gilmore Girls. A friend lent me Season 1 and I finally got through all the disks only to learn that 1) there are 7 seasons and 2) this is the last season...in fact tonight is the series finale. Both Ja and I have never really gotten into it because it's always been late when it comes on, there is a lot of talking, bantering and we are both not that chatty, but having seen the series now from the start I have grown warmer to it. Especially as I didn't watch a lot of it with Ja. So, I'm a bit sad that I've missed out on the whole Gilmore Girls thing...but happy that it's all on video and I can watch it whenever I want. It seems like I have been behind of TV lately. I don't know how that happened. Is there a book that I need to know about? TV for Dummies? Do you remember when watching the Oscars, music video awards, Golden Globes, Miss. Universe pagents were *must see* moments? Somehow over the course of the last couple of years, TV has become less of a thing. I tell myself it's because there really isn't very good TV...the old shows had that much more substance...but then why is it that I have watched West Wing, 24, Alias, Sex in the City, Grey's Anatomy and a few more shows all from video...like movie marathons and have come out of it breathless, trancelike and watching with my hand attached to the FFWd button? I guess now that I can watch TV whenever I want, there is less of an alure to it. Maybe the commercials are just too many. Maybe I am just getting old and I can't wait for a week to find out what happens next. Maybe it's because there are fewer family shows: shows that you can watch all together kids and all - and it's all safe, tame, dorky and corny. Maybe...I'm just on the wrong channel these days.
