{Season 1}

This has been my life over the past, oh, 5 and a half months. I was always against the idea of getting sucked into a TV show that seemed to consume people's lives. I didn't want to become one of those people who scheduled their activities and plans around an hour episode of this or that.

seemed to be one of those shows. I had seen a few previews here or there, but it never intrigued me enough to start at the beginning and enter into this world so many people loved. And besides, no one ever really talked about it, so I didn't even really know what the show was about. I knew no storyline. No plot. Then I got married!

Nathan had watched all but the final season (which aired his Sr. year so he already had enough on his plate) and he wanted to finish out the series. So in September, Nathan told me I needed to watch all 5 previous seasons by the end of the year, at which time they would be taken down from Hulu and I could no longer watch them for free.

I was hesitant. I didn't want to get sucked in. Then I watched the first episode. Needless to say, the addiction began. Thankfully the LA library has many seasons and episodes, so I have been able to check the DVDs out as to not watch any commercials. I have spent numerous hours engulfed in a brilliant story with outstanding writing. Nathan and I are now on the final season
and it is as good as ever.

It will be a little strange when the series finally ends and the story and characters are all wrapped out. I won't say I have regretted this commitment at all, but I'm not sure how quickly I will let myself get into another one.
