Seasons 8-10?

Does anyone else feel loyalty to a show, long after its writing and story lines have deteriorated beyond repair? I know I do. I catch myself watching shows that are over-the-top and disappointing just because I liked the first couple seasons and I want to finish out the series.

Case in point: I have always been a huge Bones fan. But the last season or two have only had a couple of decent, entertaining episodes. The characters have pretty much become caricatures of themselves at this point – way exaggerated and silly. Even though I recognize this, and it bothers me every time, I keep watching every new episode.

Even more unbelievably, I am still watching One Tree Hill episodes on Hulu. I mean really, how many murders, kidnappings, and betrayals can happen to these ten people? Each of these events happen over and over every season. So why do I keep tuning in? 

I don’t think I’m the only one who does this. Just about all of the comments on these videos are negative from frustrated viewers – but they’re watching these lame episodes too, right?

I don’t know exactly who is responsible for keeping these shows on long after they have lost their flavor, but I wish they would stop. When the story lines run dry, then give us a great series finale and end it. We’ll remember the show positively, we’ll be happy, and it won’t become a bad punchline. Plus, you’ll make room for some newer, fresher, and less disappointing shows.

My husband and I will then be moving to Texas this summer just in time for it to be really heating up down there. I'm a reader, a volleyball player, and am happiest spending when time with my family. I am not a natural blogger and just writing can be a struggle, but it's great practice for the future.
