Ryan's List

Past Me: "OK, you know what, this isn't fun anymore. Please stop."

Known fact: the 2012-2013 TV season has been brutal. Not in the record-low-ratings sense, but in the "I rely on happy, content and stable TV couples in order to feel like love is possible for real people" sense. Drastically scaling back the number of shows (and therefore potential couples) on my plate didn't help, and temporarily ditching the one (Castle) that was guaranteed to have weekly domesticity and cute moments to balance things was clearly a mistake, but having all my basic cornerstones rocked was utterly disorienting.

That's a heads-up that I may be releasing a whole lot of embarrassing pent-up crazy in the first section of this post. It's very late at night and I've been writing for a lot of hours.

The Office, 9x15, "Couples Discount"

Okay, I think I'm all ranted out on that one. For once, I have not jumped ahead to the next episode already. I'm afraid that if I try it'll throw me off for another month. I was thinking about temporarily switching the order and watching "The Farm" first, because isn't that one basically a standalone filmed way earlier, or will I miss any references to storyline advancement they added in later?

Meantime, I've switched gears over to CSI: NY. Mostly because Mac has a girlfriend over there, and I don't know how often she appears this year, but I've got infinite hope for ship moments based on season 8. This might be an unforeseen reason I don't go back to The Office for a month.
