I Blame Nan October 23, 2008

I watch tv online.  This means my show options are limited, but I can watch them at my convenience.

One show that I enjoyed last season does not appear to be available online this season.  That’s too bad because every show I ended up laughing.  Of course, if others were around, they usually didn’t get it.  Still, it was a great show and I wish it was available online this season too.

The shows that are available are usually up the day after they air.  Some run about a week behind though.  This means, if I end up in a conversation about a show, sometimes I have say “I haven’t seen that episode yet.”

A while back while visiting a blog, I noticed a page that appeared to be dedicated to one show in particular.  Although I did look at the page, I did not read it.  It seemed to be every episode summarized individually.  The blogger explained (although she did not have to) how the page came about.  She’s not an obsessed person.  It just sort of happened.

I had only seen the show once (it is available online). Maybe not even a full episode as I was completely lost as to who the people were or what was going on.

This is a new season.  I gave the show another shot.  Even though it is season four, I dove in.  I watched the first episode.  Then the second.  Followed by the third.  Although I don’t really know what happened in the first 3 seasons, I get an idea from the “flash backs”.  As of today I watched the 8th episode and am all caught up on this season of Prison Break.

I would have to say this is not a show for everyone.  There is definitely violence in it.  I can think of a few friends who I would advise to avoid the show.  Others, I would say the story line, although a bit confusing at times, is pretty good.  I would not suggest trying to jump in during the middle of the season though unless you have someone to explain things.

At this point, I don’t really know if I like the show or not.  I keep coming back to it though. It’s like some sort of addiction.  It can get a bit intense. I don’t yell at the monitor like I do during some of the other shows that I watch. I would not have it on with children around.  Still, I keep going back.

I think this is what happened:
I have been visiting Nandango’s blog for a while.  People talk about the show there.  Not constantly, but now and then.  However, she has that page.  That page that says “Prison Break”.   Then watching other shows on the same network, I saw previews for PB.  It’s enough to peak a gal’s interest.  I found myself saying “What is the Prison Break show?”   I also remember not understanding the show the one time I did try to watch it.  I do not like not understanding… Soon, I bit.  I bit the show-baited line that was dangled before me. One thing lead to another.   Then today, I have done little to nothing because I had to fit in the last 2 or 3 shows that were there.  I’m all hopped up on soda.  Wired to last through the drama, wired with sugar (it’s a caffeine free soda. I didn’t totally jump off the edge).  And you know who I blame?  Not myself.  Not the network and their previews.  After all, I don’t watch EVERY show they have.  Nope, I blame Nan!  Totally and completely. She is a Prison Break pusher.  That’s what I think.   “Come on, give the show a try.  One episode.  It’s free……..”
(Besides, if I didn’t blame her I’d have to take responsibility. ppfft)

Yup, watch out for her.  Otherwise, you too may be under the spell of network tv.

HAHAHAHA!!! See how that works? I opted not to write about this season on my blog because it was too time consuming. Funny that you’re becoming addicted this season because it might be my least favorite. Oh sure there are twists and turns but overall I think I liked season two and three better. You should go back and start with season one so you can see who everyone is. Glad you’re liking it and I’ll totally take the blame 🙂

Misty… You are next. Just wait. I’ll be calling you saying “Hey, did you see Prison Break? You have to watch it!!”

Bluesuite12 (aka Nan)
Season 2 and 3 are better than 1 or 4. Got it. Now if I can just get Misty to join me on the first season, you’re pb-addiction-plan will have reached farther than you dreamed.
