aka I'm Going To Whine About My Trivial Problem Now
As you may or may not recall, my television at some point
became self-aware determined that it was going to have the final say on what programs I watched. The tl;dr version for those who don't want to click the link: with no parental controls set of any kind, my television will randomly not allow me to watch shows -- even those rated PG or TV-14. I cannot fix it. Verizon cannot fix it. Since my television still works fine (well...mostly fine), I refuse to buy a new one.
To give you a few recent examples of my television's fine viewing decisions:
South Park -- watch all you want
Saturday Night Live -- absolutely not
Sleepy Hollow -- go right ahead! No problem with this show!
The Mummy Returns -- a PG-13 movie, edited for television? Nope.
So let's flashback a short time to when the first season of Twisted was airing. I was actually able to watch the first couple of episodes, and I loved it. I was hooked! Is Danny really a murderer? I was vacillating back and forth.
Turns out I would get to wonder for many, many months. When the third episode aired, my television decided that I would no longer be allowed to watch that show. I don't have a DVR, so no skirting the issue that way. I tried to go in and watch the episodes "On Demand", but was still blocked.
So imagine my joy when, a few nights ago, I discovered that Twisted was on Netflix. YES!! I have no idea how long it has been available on there. It never even crossed my mind to check for it. I had accepted my fate of never knowing whether Danny Desai was really a murderer.
I watched the entire season in a couple of days. Talk about a cliffhanger ending!
I needed more! I had become a Twisted junkie, and I needed my fix.
Maybe the second season is starting in the Fall? I'll go somewhere else and watch it if my television is still misbehaving. I hit Google up for the answer.
Tragically, my search results told me that the show was cancelled. Why, why are you doing this ABC Family?! So now I am back to being bummed out over Twisted again.
Silver lining: Avan Jogia will be playing Tut in a series/event to air on Spike next year.
I am going to try very hard not to express any excitement about this, as I don't want to jinx it and/or him. Maybe if the TV Gods do not think I have any interest in it whatsoever it will all go well, and my television will let me watch it when the time comes.
