Stop Making Me Laugh/Cry!!!

I don’t like crying.  At all.  In fact I hate it and I rarely ever do it because I don’t much see a point.  I do like laughing though, quite a bit.  Something that I do kind of like though, is when a show can make me cry.  I take it as a sign that the show is done well enough that I have become emotionally invested to the point where it is possible for me to cry.  What I appreciate even more are shows that make me cry and just when I feel like I’m too upset to bother with the show for the rest of the episode, they make me laugh, harder than they’ve made me laugh before.

I bring this up because I am currently watching the end of the second season of Skins.  Seriously, for a series that I took a wild chance on based off of random things I saw on tumblr, I have fallen in love with it oddly enough (it isn’t my typical type of show) and with the characters and I am sad that they are going to be gone when I start up season three.  Not to mention that the last two episodes are heart wrenching and the last one makes you laugh and cry like a bipolar person taking uppers and downers.
I can’t take it.  It’s over.  I am devastated.  Now I must watch season 3.
I have heard tell of a movie and I believe it involves the original cast, which would be lovely since there are still a few things I would like answered, or at least followed through.

A bit of a derail…can I just mention that while I love love love British tv shows, I am spoiled by American tv where seasons can run up to 24 episodes long.  Having only 8-12 for any given season of a British show almost kills me because they are so good that I want more from them!!  /end rant

Another show that continually made me laugh and cry was Scrubs.  Scrubs is one of my favorite shows ever.  I do mean ever.  I went to a community college for two years before transferring to a large University and even though I roomed with a close friend, my first year was difficult to handle at times.  Instead of going nuts and doing something stupid, or needing a counselor, I did a little self therapy and watched Scrubs.  Scrubs was starting its fifth season at the time and I spent many a night watching Scrubs until 5 am laughing and crying away my fears and pains.
I hold that Scrubs was my saving grace that first year at ECU and now when I am in the dumps I break out the dvds and have at it until everything is better.
My boyfriend is applying to Med School, I keep telling him that if he gets in he has to find a person to attach to and they can be Turk and JD.  It’s funny for me.

I’ll be honest though, the official end of Scrubs, the finale of Season 8 (they have Scrubs Med School now, but it sadly lacks the flair of Scrubs) tore me to pieces.  I laughed and cried…at the same time…for most of the episode.  Seriously.  Would I watch it again?  In a frickin heart beat.

With that I will leave you again with my ridiculous opinion based rants on tv shows.  Maybe one day soon I’ll post something that isn’t about tv shows.

    Never really got into scrubs. Should I cry over that?

      Maybe, however if it isn’t your cup of tea I can hardly demand that you feel the same way about it that I do. My parent’s to this day still don’t get my love for it despite putting up with my watching it whenever it’s on when I visit.
      I’m sure there are things you watch that I wouldn’t be all that excited about, it happens, lol.
