TV Confession: I don’t know what’s going on

There’s TV shows that I watch and get really invested in and attached to.  Breaking Bad.  Dexter.  Grey’s Anatomy.  These are my jams.  There’s TV shows that I watch and like but don’t get too invested in because the plots aren’t too complicated.  New Girl, Girls, Kardashians, Modern Family.
But then there are other shows that I am somehow really into yet have no idea what is going on.
Game of Thrones.  Boardwalk Empire.
I will watch these every week with my boyfriend and in the moment I will be shocked by whatever is happening, or momentarily intrigued, but rest assured:  I have no fucking clue what is going on at all.
If you ask me about these shows, I will seem like a fan who is really into them, but I don’t know what’s happening!  I don’t know!  In Boardwalk, there’s mobsters and killing.  In Game of Thrones, there’s dragons and killing and HELLA SEX.  That’s about it, that’s all I can tell you.  I like these shows the way people like pretty things.
To be honest though, every single time I watch Thrones, there is a new character.  I cannot keep up with a cast of 100 people.  There are just too many damn people on that show.
On Boardwalk, everyone vaguely looks the same to me.  Except for half-face man.  And the other guy who used to be on the prohibition squad.  I can’t keep track of all the characters because they all look vaguely old-timey and nefarious.
In conclusion, I wish Friends and Seinfeld would come back.

    Well this explains why you consistently go to bed halfway through Boardwalk Empire without really caring about what’s going on.

    Dude, Seinfeld! I remember watching that on Sunday evenings in my room at my parents’ house. Dozing in and out of sleep and still knowing what was going on. Those were the days… lol!
