Do you ever start watching a television series from the beginning? And watch faithfully each week? Watch the show grow and expand?
And then one day, you realize you don't really like it anymore? That it's a chore to watch? It's work?
Yeah, me, too. And this time, it's Ray Donovan.
I liked it the first couple of years. It's one of those shows that I record. Well, I recorded this year's season opener on Sunday and watched it yesterday.
When it was over I thought "what the hell was that?" It's gotten to the point I don't like any of the characters. None. Some of them I just can't stand. Thinking over and over again "why haven't they killed you off yet?" And the constant angst of every single person in the show.
I'm done. I erased the show and took it off of the scheduled recording list. I felt a little guilty, after all, I've put in a lot of time watching each episode. But I'll get over it.
I watch television to be entertained, not annoyed.
