Depression is a funny thing. Or perhaps it is withdrawal, this dark feeling that washes over me every time I realize there are NO more In Treatment episodes on the horizon, no more intense encounters with Mia and April and Walter, no more sad-eyed Oliver, no more Gina/Paul fireworks.
I somehow expect it is no accident that this quote popped up on my Daily Quotes feed today–
“The whole dream of democracy is to raise the proletarian to the level of stupidity attained by the bourgeois.” —Gustave Flaubert
at the same time as this news entry:
Cable finales. HBO’s In Treatment (264,000 viewers Monday, below last year’s, despite a new block-scheduling strategy); MTV’sThe Hills (2.7 million Sunday); AMC’s Breaking Bad (1.5 million Sunday); and E!’s Keeping Up With the Kardashians (1.9 million Monday).
