rant warning, proceed with caution
I rarely watch cable, but its fun once in awhile. Or it used to be.
So I sit down with DH last night, and we watch one of those mindless sci-fi shows, something 13 something. The premise of magicy objects, I can swallow. THat the government is smart enough to hide them all, okay, fine. Even that these things show up on people's doorsteps via FedEx, whatever, its all supposed to be a fake world.
C'mon, if the storyline is going to go way out, at least you should make the characters believable. Not a single person acted in a way that seemed normal, even within the context of the show. If the premise is that the magicy objects can control you (and make you be mad, or see things for example), then why would a vision of a person acting mad being so darn worrisome? Why worry about that person, when, for every other angry/mad/crazy/tired/sick/sleepy person in the show, they assume its a magicy object? And furthermore, if tehy've been at this artifact hunt for years and years (and several seasons of shows), why do all the hunting/agent people act like its so freaky wierd every time they find one? Or why would anyone think that dooming a person to death is going to save them from being doomed to death? How is destrying stuff going to help stop the destruction of said same exact stuff? Lets just say it got old about halfway through. Seriously, if you want me to watch cable, tv companies, you're going to have to do better. In 2013, since I am probably not going to watch anything like this again until then. Unless DH is watching it, and then I will be back to rant again.
As someone else said, pregnany really lowers your BS tolerance level.
