I used to really care about ratings. I was obsessed with them. Following them closely, despairing when my shows didn't do well... And I might again, my interest come and go in circles, after all. But these last few days taught me one thing: I can and will always find a new show to watch, another show to obsess about. Lose one, find one.
I've given up on so many shows this season, like Gotham
and Sleepy Hollow
among the most famous. And now I'm thinking of dropping NCIS:LA
. I've been bored silly with it this season. And now the spoilers that I've come across ( make me less than excited about the show... )
The only thing still keeping me going now is Densi. And that's not enough because that's going nowhere fast, either, so...
But at the same time, I became once again interested in Hannibal
and I found a delightful little show called Grantchester
to watch. And I became obsessed, LITERALLY OBSESSED - yes, capital letters were needed - with The Originals
, with Klaus and Elijah Mikaelson, them and Rebekah, too. As you know, I've always had a weakness for brothers and Klaus and Elijah take their love and obsession with each other to completely new levels. I also love that they stand together against their father, Mikael, and against their mother, Esther, and Kol and Finn, their brothers whom she dragged over on her side, that it's them against the world - the occasional fratricide between them aside, of course.
Also, I love that the Original Family embraces unashamed brutality. They all kill without mercy, without hesitation, without shame. Even Elijah, whom they call the "Honorable One" has no qualm to rip someone apart. NICE! Look at them!
This also means, I'll have to watch TVD S2-4, because that's where the Original Family was introduced... Ah, the sacrifices we make for love ;)
