HONEST I'M TRYING
I am trying, trying to watch episodes of tv shows I haven't seen. But Battlestar Galactica
, the miniseries, was unwatchably slow and dull -- an hour in before the Cylons even attack! -- and now I'm trying to get through a second episode of One Tree Hill
. I can't figure out what the hook is. I can't figure out why we care about all these pretty people. It seems to lack the glamor that makes The OC
at its best a guilty pleasure.
You should first try to figure out Gilmore Girls :-) No hook there. You said it yourself, the story is all over the place so that's not that either. I guess the answer is -- characters people love to see on the screen. Nothing else.
I guess the hook, to the extent there was one, is a mother who's so young she can be her daughter's best friend ... and the attractive fantasy is actually getting along with your parent (for teenagers) or with your teenage spawn (for parents).
