Lately, I have been torn between two worlds: film and TV!
Although I love films and I hope to work in the industry soon, I almost always get dragged back to a TV show- maybe because it's shorter, maybe because it's something I am familiar with and I know the characters, maybe just because it makes me happy without even having to think too much about it! It's not as complex as a movie, but the story usually is real or attractive to a normal person, without being a masterpiece! I like the fact that you don't need to think too much about the editing or cinematography or the direction, you just go with the flow and follow the characters into that specific world! I consider them to be my guilty pleasures and I don't proclaim my love at loud, but I like shows like Game of Thrones, Sons of Anarchy, Supernatural, Criminal Minds, The Good Wife, Castle, sometimes Grey's Anatomy, True Blood or Hawaii Five-o.
You probably don't know, but I can say that I much bigger fan of TV than films, but I am trying to change that!
I keep saying to myself- you have so many films you need to see, to understand, you have a film blog (wake up), but I constantly find the excuse that an episode doesn't last that long and that I will find time for some personal issues, as well (university work and so on). My fascination for films and film making is growing stronger day by day, but I can't find the time or the mood, to say so, to watch any!
So, were you ever in my situation? What did you do or what do you normally choose? If you do watch TV, what are you favourite shows?
