One Small Step…

Last night I did something I haven’t done in a long time:

I stopped watching a TV show.

Over the past few years I’ve been picking up more and more shows that I watch. Normally enough get cancelled quickly that I had no net gain each season. Recently though, my TV schedule has simply gotten too crowded and time consuming to keep up with each week.

I came up with a simple solution: Stop watching the worst one. And that award goes to Alias.

I foolishly watched it all the way through last season, despite being mediocre at best in some portions. But this season is worse. Last week’s episode featuring a drug that turns people into paranoid-psychotic vampires was a new low. Character inconsistencies have been piling up this season and the show doesn’t even have a season-long plot anymore to hold things together.

So long, Alias. If you ever return to your former glory of seasons 1 and 2, drop me a line.
