Well, some new TV seasons started last night! We watched all of season 3 of Once Upon a Time recently, so we were ready for the start of Season 4 last night. And we watched the hour-long episode of Family Guy, in which the characters from Family Guy meet the characters from the Simpsons.
Once Upon a Time has become comfort food for me. As long as I have been an adult TV viewer (and there was a stretch of time in which I didn’t even own a TV), some show has played that role for me. For a while, it was LOST and Desperate Housewives. I would eagerly anticipate the start of each season, like I was reuniting with old friends, and about to meet new friends. Even the less-than-stellar seasons were comfort food for me.
I don’t think that much about LOST and Desperate Housewives anymore. The ending of LOST ruined the show for me, and I have not watched old Desperate Housewives episodes since the series came to an end (except for one time, when I watched the last episode of season 1). Still, the feeling I have right now about Once Upon a Time is the same feeling that I had about those two shows.
