What People Don't Tell You About TV Shows

I just finished watching How To Get Away Murder season 1 finale on Tuesday and it was THE MOST CRAZIEST AND EPIC season finale I've seen till now. If you watch HTGAWM you must know what I'm talking about. If you don't, wait.. you don't? What ARE you doing? Go watch it. Trust me, you'll thank me later.

Anyway, I'm really really mad because the next season doesn't come out until September 2015 (whaaat?!). Ergo, I'm going to pour out my feels in today's post. 

I'm going to tell you what nobody - I repeat - NOBODY ever ever tells you about TV shows. I mean, they aren't just some sort of entertainment. Nope, no, never. You know that. I know that. The whole fandom knows that.

So go get a coffee because I'm gonna warn you about a few good things before you jump into a fandom. Believe me, peeps, this chica has been there, done that.


There will always be that one person who'll give you a spoiler no matter what. It's worse when you miss a crucial episode and your entire newsfeed is buzzing with spoilers. Stop, stop, STOP! You shall not give me spoilers!

IRL Example: Thanks to my friend, I now know pretty much all about who's alive and who isn't in Game of Thrones. And I haven't even started watching GoT yet!


Can we take a moment to talk about all the amazing characters in the all the amazing TV shows. Including the nasty characters? No one EVER tells how much you get attached to them. And when one of them dies or leaves the show or betrays your trust... ugh, let's not go into that.

IRL Example: I have this super-huge list of all the fictional characters I wish I knew for real. Like Dr. Miranda Bailey (Grey's Anatomy), Dean Winchester (Supernatural), Prof. Annalise Keating (How To Get Away With Murder), Damon Salvatore (The Vampire Diaries), Phoebe Buffay (Friends), Sheldon Cooper (The Big Bang Theory) and well on and on and on the list goes.


Don't get me wrong, I love when an episode ends with a BAM! But sometimes, these tiny moments just smacks you in the face like a... like a brick. You wish it isn't real (metaphorically, ofcourse). But nope. There, it happened. Like Every. Freaking. Time.

IRL Example: It's exactly what happened with HTGAWM. It was one helluva season finale, and now I have to wait for 7 whole months to find out why xxx killed Lila and why on Earth was xxxx murdered. WHY, GOD NO, WHY? That's torture, hear me?


I guess most of us can relate with this one. You know, how you're kept waiting until the next season airs? Or when your favourite show has ended *poof*. Or say, if you're in a country like India, you're always a year behind. Literally. Say, if season 4 airs in 2015 in the US/UK, India watches it in 2016. *sighs* My point is, why do you gotta keep us in the dark? It S U C K S.

IRL EXAMPLE: Areeba informed me last night that we might - I repeat, might - finally find out who A is (Pretty Little Liars). I mean, hello? It's been 5 seasons already. WILL YA TELL US OR NOT? KNOCK KNOCK. WE NEED ANSWERS. ENOUGH OF THIS DILLY DALLY!


The feels, you know what I mean? All those teeny-tiny emotions that keeps poking you throughout an episode. Let's just remember all them, okay? The grief, the love, the anger, the humour, the panic, the sarcasm - all of them. Yep, that's a whole lotta feelings you gotta deal with.

IRL EXAMPLE: Like I said before, I take my characters very seriously. Very, very seriously! So they cry, I cry. They laugh, I laugh. These emotions are real, buddy.

Now you tell me. What would YOU like to add to the list?
