Things That Make Me Happy: Finding a Series

One of my favorite Christmas gifts this year was the Dawson's Creek complete series!
I was practically giddy. I love Dawson's Creek and it hasn't been on TV, even in reruns, in years. What's that about? Is there no one else out there who loves the kids from the creek? When it was in reruns I watched each episode from the first show through the finale and then started over again when it looped. About the third time the reruns had looped to season one my husband finally said Really?! But I loved them! I wanted to live on the creek with them! And now I get to watch them all over again any time I want.

And I've recently made a new discovery, one that makes me super happy and has given me a new place that I want to live (Stars Hollow anyone?).

Gilmore Girls!!! How did I miss them the first time around?! They're brilliant! And the Soap channel has just started re-showing them from their 2000 pilot. I'm DVR-ing all of them of course and now I always have a bunch of Gilmore Girls waiting for me. And I looked ahead to see the finale is in 2007 so YES! 7 years of episodes ahead for me! 

Don't you love when you discover a series after it's already over? So there's no waiting around, longing for the next installment? I like doing this with books too. I still haven't read any of the Harry Potters. And I just last week started Hunger Games. WOW! Why didn't anyone tell me it was so good?! Just kidding. I definitely heard all the buzz but made myself wait.

Anyone else do this?

I never watched Dawson's, but I watched all of Gilmore Girls last year for the first time on ABC Family; I would DVR and watch while I made dinner. Those shows aired when I was in college and I hardly watched TV, so I missed them. And Buffy! I watched that series a few years ago.

I'm currently going through Felicity on Netflix. I just wrote part of a season 2 recap here: my blog

Oh yeah Felicity! I forgot about her. Such great hair. :-)
