When you’re in a bad…

When you're in a bad mood, it's somehow very satisfying to watch cheesy, petty tv. I've had a good dose of Ally McBeal and Beverly Hills 90210 and that was pretty much perfect programming for this Sunday morning. It's fun to focus on someone else's petty problems for a bit. :-) You also get to feel morally superior to them, which is much harder to do if you're watching Jean-Luc on Next Gen, or Captain Dylan on Andromeda. Though heroes are appealing too, uplifting.

Maybe that's part of why Buffy and Angel are so appealing -- they combine whiny self-involved angst with naked heroism. :-)
