All out or not at all

So most of you that REALLY know me also know that when I tend to get into a TV show, I REALLY get into it. Honestly, I can go through my life up to this point and outline it by the TV show I was obsessed with at the time--Elementary school: MacGyver (hottie, even with the mullet!); Middle/High School: The X-Files (creepy, and Mulder is smokin'!); College: Farscape(F***ing brilliant. End of discussion.); etc. I also remember that right after I graduated from OSU, when Courtney and Lorrie and I were living together, we'd sometimes watch re-runs of "Felicity" on WE. Well, it's been a few years, but I've again been bitten by the "Felicity" bug. They had been running the re-runs again, and I found myself hurrying home from work (!) for a few weeks to catch what I could. Thank God for a resourceful husband who was able to score me the first and second season on DVD!!! I don't know what exactly it is about the show; the writing is great, the acting is great, and I just love that the show spans the exact four years that I was in college (although my life at the time was not nearly as dramatic as Ms. Porter's). I've been guilty of doing nothing but watching them (sometimes 5 episodes a night!) in the time before Mike gets home each evening--probably my own form of escapism since now I'm part of the "real world." I guess my news is that I just finished the last episode of season 2, so now I'm in limbo until we find seasons 3 & 4. Looks like I might have to do something constructive, like housework...

  1. Haha MacGyver! Ain't you just the one, ducky?

    I am totally like that with "Scrubs"-- it is brilliant. We have the first 3 seasons on DVD and the 4th comes out Monday (Denver's birthday & my first day at the new job)-- we are buying it!
