Life and Time… Is It Possible To Truly Appreciate A Moment In Time?

IMG_20191105_172619

In the series finale of the HBO television series Six Feet Under, the character of Nate says something that rings so very true to real life.  As his younger sister Claire is taking a picture of their family before she sets off to start a new journey in her life, Nate says to her, “You can’t take a picture of it.  It’s already gone”.  I watched this finale when it originally aired on TV, and it’s been a piece of television that has always stayed with me.  Although, it wasn’t until years later when I watched those last few moments of the finale again where I realized how true what Nate says to Claire really is.  Moments in time will always pass us by, even as we are living in those moments.  Since time is something that never stops, that continues to move forward every single second, is it possible to truly appreciate any moment we are living if time is constantly moving forward?

“What Day Is It Again?”… The Reality Of Living In A Time Loop

Any kind of story that involves the aspect of someone reliving the same day over and over again, is the kind of story that will continue to fascinate me.  This concept of storytelling is best well known from the movie “Groundhog Day”, in which the main character of the story wakes up and continues to relive the same day over and over again.  Fast forward to these last few months, where real life has become like one of those scripted time loop stories that I am so fond of.  Where I am fond of stories that deal with the topic of time loops, I am much less fond of actually living in a time loop.

When Real Life Turns Into An Existential TV Drama…

20190104_180359

I’ve always been a fan of existential tv dramas.  I would say, though, that my appreciation for television series that dealt with that question of “Why?”, about life, didn’t come until a bit later in life for me.  Growing up, for the most part, I was a fairly happy person on most days.  I had friends, did okay in school, and participated in extracurricular activities.  Then high school ended.  In the years that followed, my friends stayed friends with one another and forgot about me, my stomach issues decided how my day would go, and that happy person I remembered being on most days seemed to disappear along with much of my self confidence.  So, to say the least, existential tv dramas were series on television that I came to appreciate, understand and relate to.

TV Show Shout Out: Russian Doll on Netflix

*Disclaimer- In writing my thoughts on the Netflix Series “Russian Doll” I will be discussing the series where spoilers will indeed by popping up during my article.  Now that that factoid has been pointed out, enjoy fellow TV Nerds!*

20190315_191447The new series “Russian Doll” which is currently now streaming on Netflix seemed to have come out of nowhere.  Well, at least for this TV Nerd.  With so many new series coming out daily now along side the numerous amount of tv shows I’m already trying to keep up with these days, I don’t really go out of my TV Nerd way to really know about every new series that is coming out before their premiere date, there’s just simply too many new series to know about them all before they start.

TV Show Shout Out: Maniac

*Disclaimer- In discussing my thoughts on the series of Maniac on Netflix, there are spoilers throughout this article.  Okay now that that’s out of the way, on to my thoughts!*

Okay, so before most TV programs come out these days there are usually always a trailer beforehand promoting these said TV programs. You know how you see a commercial or a trailer for a new show and think the following of TV Nerds thoughts, “UH YES! THIS LOOKS AMAZING! I WANT TO START WATCHING THIS LIKE YESTERDAY!”. Yeah, you know those TV Nerd thoughts. Well, maybe less dramatic than that but hey you get the drift of what I’m saying. You’re probably thinking that based on the thought like the one mentioned above that I would watch that program like right away. Is that ever the case with this gal? Never honestly, usually most of the time that be a nope! Usually if I’m really excited about a new show I actually wait a little bit of time to let my excitement lessen down a bit so I’m not overly excited and can watch the show seriously and not like, “AHHHH!!!  Can’t Wait To Watch This!!!”.  So my excitement and that initial hype that surrounds that new series has diminished up a bit so I can actually focus more than I might otherwise had been able focus if I started it right away.
