So tonight is the night! Season 3 starts for NCIS: Los Angeles. It was a LONG summer and it did help (a little) to start from the beginning of this series.
From watching shows like Alias, Lost, Buffy, Angel, and Grey's I'm used to thinking during the show that everything is fine and then BAM! Something comes out of nowhere, hits you, takes out your heart, stomps on it, puts it back in your chest, takes your wallet and runs away. You are left feeling shocked, angry, frustrated, surprised, and crying. When I saw this quote back in August from Shane Brennen on EW.com I laughed.
“We [often] lure the audience in to a false sense of security, and then smack them on the side of the head.” Shane Brennan.
Yes. We keep on getting the Gibbs 'head slap' and we keep coming back for more. Sometimes my husband (who is now hooked on BOTH NCIS' shows) asks "WHY?"
I don't ask anymore I just here for the ride.
So tonight I my kids will be in bed by 7:45 (whether they want to or not), I will be sitting in my chair, wearing my Comic Con 2011 NCIS: LA Hetty "BUGGER" shirt that I won on Ebay and I will have the follow things by my chair:
- The netbook set up on twitter.
- my phone (ON SILENT but I will be checking texts because a family friend is in the hospital and not doing that well).
- a box of tissues to use or throw at the TV or both.
The tossing of the tissue box started 2006. Chris O'Donnell was on the 8 episodes of Grey's I was THRILLED he was on. I was on the McVet bandwagon (especially after McDreamy kept on having hissy fits because Meredith actually went on with her life but that's another story).
Season 2 finale of Grey's it's Prom night and McVet is telling Meredith that for the first time in a long time "he has plans" and they are happy. YEAH! and then she looks at McDreamy who is across the room. Crap. She leaves and McDreamy follows her. They argue blah blah blah and they are doing it in the exam room.
Now I'm 10,000 years pregnant with my daughter (about 37 weeks). I'm sitting on the couch in an embarrassing (to my husband) Moo moo it's one of the few things that fit me by the end of that pregnancy, I feel and look like Jabba the Hutt, and I am SOBBING!
Me: Can you hand me the tissues
I take a couple of them out and then THROW THE BOX AT THE TV! which is on the other side of the room.
Hubby: What the Hell!?!
Me (sobbing, screaming and pointing at the TV): She should NOT be doing this! He called her a WHORE!
Hubby: I thought you wanted them together.
Me: NO! I want her with Finn! HE HAS PLANS!!
Hubby: (understands now) "You just want Chris O'Donnell on the show"
Me: "Yes" and I sob more.
Three years later NCIS LA started.
So tissues used or tissue boxed tossed I'm very excited about tonight and cannot wait what they have in store for us for season 3.
