But I also can't deny that I love vegging out in front of this form of entertainment, and now that I've been stuffed around with getting a visa, I have a lot more time on my hands.
Anyway, it was the series return of NCIS the other night. I had missed the season finale last year, but anyone who has followed it or seen the ads knows that one of the main characters (Kate) was knocked off in the finale. This year's season opened with a short recap of the shooting, and followed on with the "next day" type of thing and the remaining characters reactions to the death.
Now, none of the characters were actually crying in any of the scenes.
Not bawling or anything, but there was definite excess salty fluid in my eyes. It was so sad. These people had lost their partner and their friend. They missed her, and things weren't the same without her. I think using the whole "imagining her standing in front of them and talking to them" highlighted the fact that she was gone and emphasised the hole that she left within the group. Something I thought the producers did particularly well was that when each character was imagining that they were seeing Kate, she was dressed differently, depicting each persons impression of her and how they saw her in life. Very clever. Very interesting.
Other shows that I really like are CSI and Medium. Also a new one that has me hooked is Supernatural. I'll also watch Desperate Housewives if I'm home. And I LOVE House.
So, what are your favourite shows? What are the ones where you'll be likely to tape it if you can't be home? (If anyone says they would pass up a hot date in order to watch something, I will hunt you down and tinker with your brain until you get your priorites straight).
Captain Serial, loving the English TV!
