From ridiculous thurnderstorms, going to the Final Four championship and my upcoming prospect of moving back to NYC, the biggest thing to happen was the series finale of One Tree Hill.
If you don’t already know, besides my family, there is nothing I revere more than television.
TV is number one, ace boon coon, stand by through all my insanity BFF. I am aware that sounds completely pathological but I absolutely do not care. I watch more TV than ANYONE I know and its sick and I love it and don’t plan on ever stopping…
Well tonight my second favorite show ever, One Tree Hill, said its swan song and is over. Its been a while since I have had to go through a series finale, at least one that has meant this much to me. As usual it was perfect timing. I had a 6 hour headache and couldn’t have asked for a better two hours to get out all that anxiety with a good cry and a great escape from reality.
OTH is so good at being that escape and simultaneously always having the right thing to say when you need it. Throughout the day, when I was tumblr-ing and seeing so many people talking about how much OTH meant to them and how it helped them through so much, it didn’t really click until tonight when it was over. It became this big metaphor for me.
I started when I was 14 and now I am 23 and still have no idea who I am or what I am doing, except that over these 9 years that I still love this show. Its been that stable thing. That’s TV for me, its no mistake that I watch OTH reruns almost everyday and can’t wait to get the box set for my birthday, Christmas, or just a great going away present (hint-hint). I adore the show and the characters and the MUSIC. God, the music. If you are in any way angsty, the show is right for you. I know I’ll be watching it forever, and I dont even know when I will be able to re-visit the most perfect series finale ever.
I didn’t realize how disappointing finales could be until I saw this one. So satisfying…
I can’t even get into the details and I would hate to ever spoil that experience for anyone but it was nice to end the last few days with this. This feeling of resolve is a nice way to end a 9 year long run of a television show and I commend the entire team behind the show.
Now, I realize I am getting a bit long winded but the last few day have been pretty much shit, so I think I deserve to take a break from being snarky and sarcastic and just enjoy being who I really am, a television fangirl who likes to listen to sad music.
