Things I’d Never Thought I’d Say

“I watched good TV last night”[1].

An episode of Friends(!) that had some subtlety, an episode of Law & Order that was excellent as usual, as episode of ER that actually made me shiver[2] and the first episode of Nip / Tuck, which really was as good as it’s claimed to be. Reflecting about it now, I realize that the shows felt *real* and made me care, if only for a few moments.

[1] in my defense, I was after very little sleep, a long day of military reserve duty, and my wrists hurt when I type. Doesn’t leave too many options.

[2] Spoiler alert: it’s the one where the ER is quiet all night, and Benton rips Gant the surgical intern a new one because he messes up. Carter sides with Benton and lets Gant down. At the end of the night a terribly mauled patient arrives after having jumped or tripped in front of the train. Everyone is happy to finally have some work and feel sorry for the patient who has no face left. Benton asks for Gant to be paged. The patient’s pager beeps… the looks on Benton and Carter’s faces as they realize they’re working on Gant are haunting.
