Ring those bells! Drop the ball! Turn on the TV!
The new year brings back some of our favorite series.
Where have they been? I think the correct answer for
that would be “on hiatus.”
That’s when many successful programs take a break
from airing new episodes of their series. For dedicated
viewers, this is a weeks-long period of deprivation,
frustration and aggravation which is made even more
intense because the last episode is usually a cliff
hanger.
What are just a few of these programs and from what
cliffs are we viewers presently hanging?
Well, there’s “Survivor.” This was the first commercially
successful reality show in the United States when it
began 17 years ago. The 35th episode aired December
2017.
Fans will have to wait about two months to see the
new contestants on “Survivor – Ghost Island.” The success
of the program depends heavily on how the contestants
interact. Long-time fans still remember Russell
Hantz, Richard Hatch and other colorful competitors
who made their seasons truly gripping.
My favorite series, “The Walking Dead,” left fans with
one of its most dramatic cliff hangers of its eight seasons.
Fans, including myself, have long realized that this is
one of the few series that actually kills off major – and
beloved – characters.
But we just know in our hearts that a few regulars, who
have been in the cast since the beginning, cannot be
done away with . . . or so we thought.
But the last episode of the past season ended with a
huge shocker. I won’t say who it is, in case you haven’t
viewed it yet. Just keep a hanky nearby and prepare for
a major death.
And just one more popular series, a fairly new one:
“Designated Survivor.” This well-acted, intriguing series
starring that terrific actor Keifer Sutherland, is based
on what would happen if the leaders of our government
were all killed in an attack. Who would become the next
president? Each episode deals with the task of being
that designated survivor.
The December season finale ended with a horrific car
crash involving the new First Lady. Was it fatal? Fans
will have to wait until this really riveting series returns
weeks from now.
Watch the ads for the return of these and other shows.
And does anyone besides me remember when a TV
series consisted of 39 episodes per year???
