I was on the fence about buying this show.
But Fry's Electronics had it for cheap the week it
was released $39.99, and I decided to bite the bullet.
Well, my mother came home, saw the set laying on the
floor --Yes, I share a house with my mother because
I am a college student of limited income, and I am
spoiled rotten...anyway.--, she wanted to watch an episode,
and after just one, she was hooked.
She actually kept me up one night until 5:00am with the
phrase, "Just one more episode."
I, too, had forgotten how much I loved this show, and
now, regardless of price, I want to get the rest of the
seasons, even if they are "uneven" in quality.
I didn't even know that this show had ran for 4 seasons,
which, honestly, is perfect for a show set in college.
(My own work/class/life schedule got too busy and I stopped
watching "normal" television.)
Now, I'm glad, and hope, that I can buy the other seasons
on DVD, and just as of a few hours ago, my mother finished
the season 1, and is cringing at the thought of having to
wait to hear how things are resolved.
One final note, if you have not seen the entire series,
I was a bit both happy and annoyed that in the final
episode of season one's commentary, the creators of the
show mention how the finale of the series ended, and I
really didn't want to know that
Noel gets married
especially since how they phrased it,
I now know what has happend
(at least how they relate to eachother)
to a few other characters as well.
Oh well. It will make this a bit like
Star Wars: Episode III
How will we get from the end of EPII
but I wish they'd had stuck to only discussing
season one events
Here's hoping seasons 2, 3, & 4 are not far behind.
Finally, and not to threaten anyone's masculinity,
but I am a gay guy who likes...okay, loves...this show,
and just as a "no biggie" side note,
and general FYI to anyone reading this,
I am not sure the use of the word
fairy in this thread thus far is entirely helpful
for this seeming like an inclusive forum.
"Fairy," to most of the gay men I know,
is a bit like the N word for African-Americans.
Just an FYI... and no, I don't expect anyone to bow
to the Political Correctness police, which I hate.
(And I am one of those people that rolls my eyes,
when people talk about "sensativity training.")
Just a little FYI to some of you very nice sounding folks,
who I am sure don't want/mean/intend to offend
reasonable people who hopefully aren't being
overly sensative to a term that is largely
considered negative/offensive by the population it attempts to define.
