Addiction.

After American Idol Season 7, we experienced that familiar withdrawal symptom of not being able to see it anymore. So we shudder with need and crave for more. And we only get relief by reading bits and pieces of news on You Tube and fan sites.

That addiction passed with a substitute drug: 3 seasons DVD of Lost. And we watched it every free hour and sometimes until early morning. We wondered if Kate, Jack and red-neck Sawyer will ever get home. And just when they did, well ... we got the all too familiar withdrawal symptoms again.

Past addictions included: CSI, Criminal Minds, Life, ER, Grey's Anatomy, House, Ally McBeal, Boston Legal, Shark, West Wing, Sex In The City, Entourage, Desperate Housewives, Brothers and Sisters, Heroes, Harry Potter books, Lord of the Rings book series.

Shudder. Crave.

Wonder what the next fix will be?

I wonder if there is any addiction in the world where you will never ever experience withdrawal symptoms? Hmmmmmm ...

Yeah, we get the dvd series in one go as well: That way we don't have to wait two years for the syndicated version to hit South Africa.
As Keith Richards once said: Avoid hangovers- stay drunk.
I don't agree with that, but it applies to your addiction: just keep watching...
The latest series for us is Damages.

Hi Duds,
I came across your blog, from Jim Paredes' piece on "Why I blog?" I like your comment, especially about "people having contrary opinions...".
You a have a decent list of tv show addictions. Not that you could use more, but I thought I recommend my own tv favorites 30 Rock, Reaper and Dead Like Me.

Cheers
