MUST BE THE AGING PROCESS

I really don't think I was always this cheesy. But with my imminent aging scheduled to occur a week from today, I guess my age is finally catching up with me, at least as far as watching TV's concerned.

For instance, earlier, I was watching Something's Gotta Give, and found myself bursting into laughter and tears as frequently as Diane Keaton did in that movie.

And now, watching the late-night episode of Buffy...the one with the senior prom. Buffy and Angel break up, we see Giles and Wesley all gussied up for the first time, and Buffy gets the "Class Protector Award." It always makes my eyes water. I'm such a sap. And then, just when the tear's getting ready to escape my eye, Wes asks Giles if he could "ask Miss Chase to dance," and Giles answers: "My God man, she's 18. And you have the emotional maturity of a blueberry scone. So just have at it, and stop fluttering about." Then Angel shows up all tuxalicious. Just for the prom. "Wild horses...couldn't drag me away..."

Oh, the good old days. When I was involved with the Angel and Buffyverse, when I had a set schedule for my TV viewing. Now I'm a flipper. Hoping for Law & Order SVU, and usually able to find it. Looking for something big, and affecting, and a little schmaltzy. (I'm not gonna lie; I do watch the occasional Cinematherapy movie on WE.)

Even though Sex & the City's coming to TBS, I still need me some new TV shows. Nip/Tuck's a-comin', as is Reno 911. But am entertaining other offers, should any of my readers have suggestions.

Don't be ashamed of the cheese. Embrace it, I say.

While the end of Friends was a pretty big blow (I would liken it to your Buffy loss), I take solace in the WB—the ultimate in cheese. In particular, I'm addicted to Everwood and Gilmore Girls, which I highly recommend. And then, of course, there are the Friends and Sex and the City DVDs.
