A friend was telling me last night about how she hadn’t watched House MD in around 10 years but randomly decided to revisit season 1 last year. She’d not watched it in so long that it was more akin to watching a show for the first time. This is something I’ve found with the crime shows I enjoy: if I leave them for long enough, my memories of the plot points will fade and I can still be surprised.
Have you ever done this with a show? Did it live up to your memory of it or had you forgotten sufficiently for it to be a fresh experience? Perhaps you came back to a TV show you didn’t like that much and found it better than you expected?
