Dear British TV
Dear British television (or telli),
Now you know I love you, I really do. I mean, despite my relationship with American tv you know I’ve chosen you time again. I know we have to kind of sneak around sometimes but I know it’s worth it for me. We’ve had long nights together where I’ve gotten very little sleep but I’ve never regretted one moment with you. Not one.
My only problem is, the games you like to play. When it comes to my television I don’t want to play games, I want to know where I stand. It hurts my feelings when I think I know what’s going on and then you just disappear without even a word. I thought I meant more to you than that.
With skins you not only took away all the characters I loved at the end of season 2 but you left me with so little to hold onto. Ok, so you brought me Cook in return but then you took him away too. I realize that you have an issue with commitment but doesn’t my loyalty mean anything?
Then there was Being Human. I never intended to like this show, you know I don’t like sci-fi, but I fell in love anyway. How was I to resist George’s adorableness and Mitchell’s sexiness? Huh? What did you then go and do? Yeah you took one of my favorite characters away, like you didn’t even care! I know you think I was warned ahead of time with The Hobbit but there was no way to prepare for that.
Oh and Misfits, yeah, you heard me! You bring a bloke like him into my life and make him completely irresistible. What were you thinking when you took him away? I can only imagine you were just trying to hurt me with that one, there is no other explanation.
Then you bring me Sugar Rush and I think, what a great story and such great characters. I think, wow, British television brought me a little gift to help with everything I had been put through so far. Of course you go and cancel this show after 2 seasons even though it was a really popular show. Was that really necessary?
All I know is that you better make things right or I may have to walk away forever. I may have to give up on my lovely Brit tv forever and go back to my American tv that is so much more dependable but much less alluring. How would you like that?
Sigh. You know I could never leave you. Bollocks.
