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 in 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).
