[31 Television Shows in the month of August]
I don’t remember how I got into this show, but once I saw it, I was hooked. I love, love, loved The Pretender when I was in middle school. I’m currently rewatching it now, I still love it, but it’s much more 90’s than I remembered it to be. That’s not necessarily a bad thing though.
I love how fast paced, exciting and suspenseful the show can be, but I also love the softer, quieter moments of compassion. I love how smart and clever it can be, while also being heartfelt or heartbreaking. The sense of adventure and self-discovery is in everyone, but no one more than Jarod, and following his journey was a very enjoyable story. My only complaint is the show ended too early (was canceled), and it never had a proper ending. I keep wishing and hoping that someday, magically they will make a tv movie to end it, but as its been around 10 years or so, each day my hope shrinks. It would be amazing though.
This was also the first show I fell in love with after getting the internet. It was the first show I could really fangirl over, and print photos, download sound gifs (because this was pre-youtube days) and I put them all on my floppy discs! It seems like yesterday, but it’s so old school to think about now. I still have those floppy discs, just nothing to play them on. :)
