There is a show on that EVERYONE seems to be watching. I see comments about it enough the night that it airs. My timelines on both FB and Twitter fill with “OMG!” and “EWWWWWW.” and all kinds of variations. Most of the time, the posts amuse me. I love to see people so passionate about something they’re fully invested in.
To be honest, I own the first season of the show and have watched the first few episodes. Did they interest me? Yes, the concept was simple but original enough to keep me watching. Was I invested? That’s where the real question comes in. I liked the show. I like the characters. But I watched the episodes a few years ago and I haven’t had a burning desire to continue. At this point, I’m several seasons behind, so it would take a bit to catch up. I have other shows that I am more vested in that I would put first. But it does make me wonder what I’m missing.
Have you ever had an instance where everyone else appears to be watching a show you’re either marginally invested in or have no interest whatsoever and wonder what the heck it is that didn’t strike you the same?
BTW, the show I’m talking about?
