The Rest of the TV Meme

Just to get it out of the way before I try to post something more substantial

Day 27 - Best pilot episode
Being Human, even though only one of the actors stayed the same in the actual series.
Day 28 - First t.v show obsession
In terms of running home from school unable to miss it, probably Dark Shadows. Boy, did I love Barnabas Collins.
Day 29 - Current t.v show obsession
Cross between Being Human (which I wish was longer and was going to go into Season 3, like, TOMORROW) and... cough... Glee.
Day 30 - Saddest character death
No, not Joyce Summers, although that was pretty devastating. The death on a TV show that upset me the most - and this is pretty obscure - was Samir Rasheed on Coronation St. First of all, it was a shock. Then, the way it happened: he was beaten up by a gang of thugs on the waterfront, while on his way to meet Deirdre (his older lover) and her daughter at the hospital. Daughter needs a kidney transplant, because she has been a drug addict. He is left brain-dead, and hospital asks Deirdre to let them go ahead with the transplant in order to save her daughter. Deirdre bids Samir a tearful goodbye as he and daughter are wheeled into the operating theatre.
I know it sounds corny (this is, after all, a Soap), but I still remember that scene - it was in fact pretty disturbing and very upsetting.

Here are all the questions
gorey dog and book

Failing in Another

Well, "failing" is probably not the right word. But I've decided that I don't want to continue with the 50-Book Challenge. I _think_ I would probably have done it (although I'm not absolutely sure), but I'm a bit annoyed with myself that I care, and I think this is one obsessive-compulsive list thing that I just don't want to do. Also, I was finding it affecting my reading choices and even pleasure - I was more pissed off than usual if a book I started did not grab me, because it seemed like a waste of time. I've not been rereading, even if I wanted to, because re-reads did not "count." I was choosing not to read something long or difficult because it would set me off my reading schedule.


I just need to stop it. So I'm going to.
