    Default Patterns Suck.

    So, I had been watching Blacklist. I was really enjoying it for like 3-4 episodes then I noticed that EVERY episode is the same.

    1. Someone dies.
    2. They investigate it.
    3. Someone else dies, but they almost stop it!
    4. They hunt the baddie.
    5. Baddie dies.

    It's not just that show but there are many that have a pattern that doesn't differ much from episode to episode.

    Pretty much so EVERY season and EVERY episode of Supernatural is the same.

    It's annoying. After I notice it i'll watch another episode just to verify then it's pretty much so dead to me.

    In Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D almost no one dies. You might enjoy that, I didn't.

    Oh, I don't care if people die. I just hate it when every episode is the same.
    It doesn't seem to happen as often if there is a well developed metaplot.

    Im also amazed that marci has almost 10k posts consisting of one line douce-spones.

    What the hell did you expect? Did you decide to turn on your TV for the first time in your life and watch a TV show?
    90% of TV shows out there are like that. All of them have patterns.

    Go watch CSI: Miami/New York/Las Vegas

    this is why I don't watch TV


    Reading: Kafka on the Shore by Haruki Murakami
    Last read: You Just Don't Understand!: Women and Men in Conversations by Deborah Tannen (A MUST READ), A Child Named "It" by Dave Pelzer (NOT BAD), A Dance With Dragons by GRRM (4.5/5)

    Interested in why I picked these books, or want to recommend me some more? Just pm me. I love books.
