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.
