After a long cold winter, TV is back! With もっと見る new episodes of all our favourite shows cropping up every week, our spirits are higher than they've been in months. Still, there's a very large "BUT" hanging about.
Our shows are back, BUT, they've all been moved around and a great many of them are now appearing on the same nights! I'll allow that this whole rant might just because this is the first time that my favourite shows are suddenly all scheduled at the same time... it's possible that other people have had this happen before. Still, I'm sure I'm not alone.
So far, this is how my week is shaping up:
8pm - Bones, Gossip Girl
8:30pm - How I Met Your Mother
9pm - One 木, ツリー Hill, House
9:30pm - Samantha Who?
8pm - Ugly Betty
9pm - The Office, Grey's Anatomy (whose brilliant idea was this???)
9:30pm - Scrubs
10pm - Lost
9pm - The Tudors, Desperate Housewives
10pm - Brothers and Sisters
... and nothing the rest of the week! What is going on in the minds of TV producers? Is it really in their best interest to have all the big shows competing with each other for viewers? Personally, I think it's a whole lot of craziness.
I would protest または something, but it's a lot easier to just watch half the shows online. Serves the networks right for slotting all the shows at the same times anyway. Although it certainly seems ironic considering the reason for the strike in the first place.
