I don’t watch a lot of TV.
I’m still a die hard Greys Anatomy lover…and adore Oprah’s Super Soul Sundays. I turn the TV on when I go to bed at night…search desperately for a show not knowing any of the programs, then usually settle for Storage Wars where often, I’m asleep before the first lot is revealed.
When hanging out with friends, as they chat about one show after the next of “must sees”…I’ve nothing to add. I don’t know the actors let alone the movies or shows they’re famous for.
Years ago, I never missed an episode of One Life to Live or All My Children…but I stopped watching those shows long before they went off the air as I’d my own soap opera that needed attention.
So…I’m rather surprised that last month, I watched the entire series of Breaking Bad!
THE WHOLE THING!
That’s FIVE seasons…SIXTY TWO episodes!
I’m completely done. The program has come to an end and I haven’t a sweet clue what happened between Walt and Gretchen or what’s so important about Gus Fring’s Chillean past…but, I’ve watched 278 people die in various ways and I’m pretty sure, if I suddenly found myself at gunpoint in front of the Cartel, I could cook a mean batch of blue meth.
I’m a little uptight…looking over my shoulder. I’m sure that folks are looking for me and that I’ve somehow, unwittingly, gotten myself wrapped up in this crazy drug trade. I see oil trucks driving down the road and figure there are people hiding in them and the regular, ordinary, everyday houses all over our neighbourhood…are looking suspiciously like labs.
I BINGE WATCHED Breaking Bad for an entire month and I have to tell you…it was NOT the smartest thing I’ve done in the last little while but at the same time…it was a bit of an escape from reality…and absolutely, fantastic!
Time for a new series…what’s your favorite show?
