Ever since college i have been watching TV series like Gossip Girl, One Tree Hill and just recently, Queer as Folk and many others.. Why?...Because everybody watches it.. It's seems that the topic for the next day is what would and what happened on those shows. It is very intriguing to see twists and interesting life stories that you don't come across on everyday life, i mean on reality, that happens on these super class dramas.
Anyway, have you ever thought about being on those shows?? ME? Yeah!...but i always think if these plots, stories and interesting life stories happens on real life??
Im not sure. For the next 12 something hours, 12 plus episodes and countless seasons without any commercial breaks, just my occasional visits to the loo and water breaks, i have seen the life story of those characters; their humble and lucrative beginnings, their downfalls and success, their wild and unexpected relationships and of course, their picture perfect, ideal, unrealistic stories. But why does these shows always make the story ideal? Like the flaws are just a mild hint of despair and not really an effort to ruin them.
The lifestyle of the Upper Eastsider's, lucrative, well formed, shining and extravagant. They study at a well known high school and Brooklyn is what they call the other side of the bridge. Their parties are everynight in a who knows where and how much they pay. They are serviced by limousines and maids and butlers. They can pay someone's worth regardless of the amount.
The One Tree Hill characters, they live high school like it is the perfect stage of everyones life. Their romance is addictive and exciting. The head cheerleader and the captain ball of the varsity is the IT couple. Then all of a sudden, in the same high school, you'll find your half brother, uncles gets killed by brother who's a mayor and arsons are part of their revengeful plans.
The Queer as Folks men, they don't portray what the present IT scene is. I mean, the ever gorgeous bisexual guy has a son, the mother of which is a bisexual herself and the friends are like party people who goes to clubs every night. The IT guy has a boyfriend that made him a cradle snatcher, whos mother approves their relationship. The ever playful friend, gets fame from an internet pornsite and the other one owns a comic books whos mother shouts out loud that she proud of him.
Those series show watchers the ideal life. What life and things should have or would have to be. How people should live and let live. How the unrealistic lifestyle can come up to life in front of your very own eyes. How life can be so playful that even the most impossible circumstances would happen.
