Sunday Confessional: how to watch tv

Confession: I love the show The Walking Dead.

Confession part two: I can’t watch the gory parts.

I know what you’re thinking, how the heck do you love a show you can’t watch?
Easy. I watch through my fingers as I cover the majority of the gore. I love the story, I am invested in the characters. The gory bits aren’t relevant to me at all.
I have never liked horror movies or any movie or show that freaks me out. I hated the X Files.

However, when the show finds a way to make you care about the characters in the story, that’s the sign of an awesome show.
I just finished watching the mid season finale and without giving too much away. I cried.

I tend to cry a lot when I love a show. It’s my personality.

My husband and kids laugh at me all the time. When I cry at movies , or TV. However, their favorite way of teasing me now is during The Walking Dead as I watch it through my fingers.

Confession: I will never watch it any other way. But I will never not watch.

I think I am being brave enough to watch the stuff that freaks me out even through my fingers. It’s close to actually facing it.

Close. Almost. Just about.


Until later.

    I love walking dead. We at on last season so still playing catch up. Can’t wait to see how it all plays out.

  2. I love The Walking Dead too! But I am a fan of horror and don’t mind the gory bits. Funny story: Hubby also loves horror and thriller movies but watches the jumpy scary bits thorough his fingers or with his eyes closed. He says, and I quote, “I hate windows…and shadows and OMG something is going to jump out!!” closes eyes, “That was really freaky. Me: “How do you know? You had your eyes closed?” lol
