I’ve never seen more than about twenty minutes of the show and parts of maybe 5 or 6 episodes. Yet, while standing there last night watching the last ten minutes of gruelingly slow dialog, I think to myself “wow, I’ve hardly seen any of this show, but I’m still completely up to date with what’s going on”.
I can’t make it through the last two minutes, so during one of the many long, silent pauses I turn to my wife, who appears to be in a deep trance and say “good n-” before I’m cut off with a sharp “SSHHH”. WTF?!
From what I hear my wife isn’t the only one so engrossed in the show, much of America is also. I don’t think I could stay awake through an entire episode. For my wife it seems more important than life. “I wait all week for this show.”
I make it a point to watch two shows, Lost and Prison Break. If I’m watching Prison Break I have no problem wrestling with my son or even going up stairs to make him a snack. My wife doesn’t seem to be able to miss a single audible breath of boring Grey’s Anatomy. I really don’t get it. Am I missing something?
