Everything's So Bright And Hollow

I've been having a weird night. Montages always get me, so do the slow, obvious attempts to rape my emotions to their lowest with those songs that just... hurt. So I thought I'd share some moments with you. Quiet moments. Sad moments. Deaths of characters so real you want to touch them...

"Not this girl. Not this day."

After watching "A Hole In The World" and the final moment in that episode, I couldn't watch the next one, "Shells". It made me hurt. I'm a big fan of Angel, and so the death of Fred was like a gut punch and I never really could watch it again without feeling terrible and sad.

"W-Wesley... why can't I stay?"


I never did watch Six Feet Under, yet this montage... made me want to. Made me want to learn about these characters that again, were so fully formed... why does this keep happening? I did however want to start when I watched Michael C. Hall in Dexter. Now that is television.

Oh, I so intend to buy Due South season one after seeing this again. Just reminds me of what a brilliant show that was.

Third Watch was something I used to view in tandem with ER when I was ill. Simply brilliant, such a shame it didn't get the attention it deserved (this was the case for so many brilliant American shows in the late 90s, early 00s, such as my personal favourite Ed, Providence, Judging Amy, the aforementioned Third Watch...) but it lives on in us all.


  1. Yay for Due South!

  2. One of, if not the, greatest Chicago-based Mountie show of all time.
