Just when I'm ready to start something regular, a Thursday-after-Lost blog gab, they go and throw in a repeat. So I don't know if there is a point since not only was tonights episode a repeat, it was a repeat from last season. So I suppose we could do some ranting on the fact that after almost a month of repeats we get only two (or was it three) new episodes before we get a repeat.
Whatever happened to the days - ah I remember them - vaguely - when we got a full season's worth of shows before summer reruns. The new season would start the first week in September and all shows would be new until the middle of May. It kind of ran the same as a school year. There may have been one repeat sometime in December, but a lot of shows had special Christmas episodes. These days it seems there is a month of new shows followed by a month of repeats during the whole month of December. Then January we might see a few new ones followed again by repeats until the February sweeps. Then many a show goes on hiatus, while they try out different shows. Then our favourite show might come back for a few more then that's it. I don't even think they have May sweeps anymore.
I really don't like this new way at all, no I don't! It's nice to get into a rythm and flow of a show, but that's next to impossible anymore.
WE ARE GETTING ROBBED IN OUR TELEVISION VIEWING!!
And when you watch as little TV as I do, well it just bites.
