It’s not goodbye, it’s see you later

We’re at that time of year that always makes me a little sad. A time when I revel in the good memories, and wait anxiously for a time when new memories can be made.

That’s right, it’s season finale time on TV.

Ok, yeah, so maybe I watch too much tv. But seriously, the months of June-early September are dismal in TV land. DISMAL I say. Though there are a few exceptions (hello, Burn Notice!), the summer months are mostly a wasteland for television.

N.C. and I tend to use the summer months as a good time to catch up on series or shows we may have skipped before (the joys of Netflix!), which is all well and good, but I miss the characters I spend so much time with over the year. I’ve always gotten attached to characters (the end of a good book has long saddened me–I hate not getting to know more about the characters I’ve been reading about), and my current TV landscape is no different.

Look, I know I watch too much TV. I know that it’s ridiculous that I’m writing a blog post mourning the season finales of fictional people in a little box. I should read more, exercise more, go out and play more, etc. I know this. But honestly, I like my tv. I like good storytelling. I like relaxing after work with everything from mindless drivel to insanely mind-bending philosophical writing (um, Lost anyone?) that is presented to me in one hour increments.

And let’s be honest–I’m probably going to have to forgo some of my tv obsession this coming fall (or at least postpone it until such a time when I’m not sleep deprived). So join me in mourning the end of the TV season, as I say farewell to my favorites and hope beyond hope that I get to see them again come fall. Or whenever (damn you Lost and your “we’re not coming back until 2010”).

And let’s hope the upcoming episodes of Burn Notice are enough to tide me over.

OMG I’m totally blogging about this topic tonight too. I’m so sad that my DVR is going down in shows to watch. That might not be TOO awful though 🙂

I’m consoling myself with Wipeout. Wipeout, So You Think You Can Dance, and Weeds will get me through the summer….

Lisa´s last blog post..Oh, “What’s that?” you ask?

Hello…Project Runway in July.

Plus I recommend Without a Trace.

I thought PR was in late August…that’s definitely on my list. Even better if it’s in July 🙂
