TV Addict

Yes, that's what I am. A TV Addict. It's sad, really. I remember back in boarding school I used to watch a lot of TV. Everyday after classes I would watch an episode of the Power Rangers and an episode of Young Hercules. Man, how I loved me some Young Hercules.

I also had borrowed from my friend Delilah the video cassettes of Fushigi Yuugi, which I adored and have seen every episode of. And then every Tuesday night I would skip social hour and watch Roswell instead. Even to this day, if asked what my favorite TV show is, I say Roswell. I frickin' LOVED that show! Which is weird, because there were three seasons and yet I could never really get into seasons 2 and 3. So it's really only first season Roswell that I love. I am presently rewatching it now, and I am thinking that with all the TV watching I have been doing lately, I might as well watch the second and third seasons.

Also, on Friday nights at LSMSA (my boarding school), I would occasionally have nothing to do, and so I would watch the WB. If I'm not mistaken, this was back when Popular, of which I saw the occasional episode, was airing along with season 4 of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, which is to this day the only season of Buffy that I have ever seen. I am therefore a Riley fan and not an Angel fan. Weird.

Anyhow, since then, I had sort of given up TV for quite a long time. The only show that I really watched on TV was Mythquest (MAN, what a great show!!!!) every Sunday morning one year at NYU. And, of course, Sex and the City, which I actually only watched after it was all over. I was given the DVDs, and they were basically the only thing that could console me when my loserface ex-boyfriend broke up with me.

Now, though, living in France and having a schedule that leaves plenty of room for laziness, I have become a TV addict like never before. I have seen three seasons of Battlestar Galactica and have just recently started on the fourth. I watched the first two seasons of Dexter. I had had for AGES the first five seasons of Smallville on DVD, and I finally got around to watching those. I also watched the 6th season and am about to start season 7. I'm catching up! I'm about to start Samurai Girl, which was a very short series. I've also started Desperate Housewives, of which I just recently finished the second season. I diligently watch the Secret Life of the American Teenager, Gossip Girl, and Privileged. Oh, and I can't forget that I have also, since arriving in France, watched every episode of Cardcaptor Sakura and have started watching Magic Knight Rayearth and Death Note.

As you can see, I have been watching and enjoying a lot of TV. Because of it, though, I have been really worried. Because it is looking like I will have a lot of free time next year as well. I'm planning on starting with season one of Buffy the Vampire Slayer and watching them all. And both my sister and brother love One Tree Hill, so I was thinking I would give that a try as well. But I've been sort of feeling afraid that I am going to run out of things to watch. Especially because


Privileged has been canceled. This show actually made me forget about Gossip Girl for a minute, with how good it is. I regularly every week made time in my schedule to watch its awesomeness. And NOW, it has been canceled. I can't get over how sad this makes me. Especially since the director decided that she was going to leave lots of open ends hoping for a second season. So
I can't even believe how sad this makes me. It was SO good. I don't understand why it didn't do better.
I mean, Smallville just finished its EIGHTH season and it got signed up for another season. Even Buffy only had 7 seasons. I mean, don't get me wrong, I love Smallville. But seriously people - 9 seasons? And then if I'm not mistaken One Tree Hill was signed on for an 8th season. It's just not fair - couldn't they have given Privileged a second chance?

Anyhow, I am just glad that it looks like there are going to be lots of new awesome shows to help me get over my sadness and to make sure that I have things to watch next year. And, since I am sure everyone is just thrilled beyond belief to get to read about all of the wonderful TV shows that I watch, I will have to write all about them next time, because NOW - I have to go!

WOW... when I saw your facebook status update saying it was canceled I thought you meant like.. they canceled one episode. Kind of like they sometimes have to do that if the superbowl runs really long. I'm sorry, that REALLY sucks =(
