The power of television! No seriously, its messed up. I know exactly what you mean.
It really is messed up. I always wonder how much stuff i could get done if i didnt spend my time being half happy watching tv.
Same here. I actually find it predictable and I don't really like any of the characters too much. Yet I've watched the first season in only two sittings and I'm pretty sure I'm going to pick up the second season as well.
Its like i keep hoping something worth while will happen but it never comes. Right now im only watching to find out what the message was that the main guy got whispered in his ear at the end of season 1.
