So it seems, while I love British television the most of all television it also breaks my heart more than any other shows. How many times has the show left me crying at the end, unconsoled. Luckily my husband understands, relatively, why this hurts me so much.
First there is Skins, now to be fair to them I knew what I was getting going in, sort of. I learned as I started watching the show that every 2 years they get a new cast. It wasn’t easy letting go of Tony, Sid and Cassie and I still miss them. Then I had to let go of Cook, fucking Cook. Now season 6 approaches in January, the last season and I have to get ready to say goodbye to Skins forever. Unless there is a movie, please tv fairies bring me a movie and I’ll be a good girl I promise!
Then there was Being Human (no not the US one, shut your whore mouth ok?) as I fell in love with the 3 of them pretty quickly. Annie was sweet, George was a goofball and Mitchell was just pure heaven…for a vampire. Then they crushed me and if I remember correctly I didn’t see it coming. At the end of season 3 I was just curled up in a ball of tears. Yes, I said a ball of tears, bite me.
But I moved on because I had Misfits and Misfits would never hurt me. Well ok Nathan left the show but I had the other 4 and that was enough for me to hold on. This show, I can’t explain it, but it’s an escape for me that takes me out of the bullshit of everyday life. I won’t apologize for what it does for me, we all have our ways of getting out of our own head and this is my way. Well last night was another crushing blow and I honestly don’t know what I’ll do. I invested a lot of myself into this show, more than someone probably should but it helped me deal with shit. For how much I love this show I’m not sure I can continue on again.
And so last night Manly Man had to calm me down and that’s just who I am, a show in itself can bring me to tears. It took me a while to get to sleep last night because I couldn’t stop thinking about the travesty that had just happened. Do I still love this show and the other shows? I do, I always will but they have definitely broken my heart. I feel like a 16 year old girl.
