When I was either 8 or 9 years old I sold my soul. I needed money for an ice cream sandwich and that was a decision I made and have stood by since then. I gave up a metaphorical concept and instead got an actual food product.
I think I got the better end of that deal, sorry Mr. Petry. Is that how you spell your last name? I forget.
Anyway, point is, I do not have a soul. This can be seen as either good or bad. Most people would probably think that it is bad but I don't really know about that. If I don't have a soul, I don't have to worry about making a deal with the devil ever. Although unless Adrian uses my soul to make a deal then I am screwed. Lucky for me he is a stand up guy ad likely will just let my soul rest peacefully, thereby resigning our contract once he is no longer with us.
So at the most, my soul will outlive my body but not by much because we are the same age.
The thing is, I have never once missed my soul. I also, am not even sure if I am fully rid of it. I still can feel some things that a past therapist once told me were "emotions" which I assume you need a soul to feel. As previously mentioned, I am a robot so emotions aren't really something I can handle well. I tend to just shut them out or shut down, one of the two. Except when it comes to one thing:
Television is my sweet, sweet addition that I cannot get enough of. I cannot ever stop, nor do I want to. I just love it. Well, I love some of it. I love comedies, I love shows that are a bit nerdy and action packed but usually I enjoy shows mostly when they have a comedic aspect.
Right now I am ALL about Agents of S.H.E.I.L.D. Which will henceforth be written as Shield because of laziness.
I watched this weeks episode at the edge of my seat. And then watched it again the following morning to search for all the secrets. It's a show filled to the brim with likeable characters, complicated plot points, and tricky plans that you don't figure out until its over and you are left with your mouth hanging wide open.
I have the utmost respect for Joss Whedon who co-created this show with his brother Jed and his brother's wife whose name is currently escaping me which I apologize greatly for. Together they have created this little world to fill in the long breaks between Marvel movies that not only satisfy the need for that world to be ever present, but give us all better understanding of the universe that has been created for us, the geeky and rabid fans.
We couldn't let Coulson die, we couldn't have just one or two events a year to enjoy, we needed some new blood to give us alternate views on a world where we only get to see from the super hero perspective. We now get to see the Marvel world from the view of some adorable scientists whom I adore, a kick-ass agent who literally must have some kind of time machine because she looks 25, a sweet little hacker who has grown into one of the coolest characters on the show and then a bunch of others that I can't even begin to describe because it has really gotten more intense lately and the plot is so far beyond explainable in one blog post.
The main thing I really wanted to get to was that television is really one of the only things that gets my heart beating (other than bare minimal physical exertion.) I cry at the most simple moment on tv but in real life, it takes essentially a death or a severe mental break to affect me.
I just want to thank television, without you, I would have no release for all those pent up so-called emotions. I would be just a ball of rage and feels. At least with you, I can squee alone in my living room about a sandwich and feel something other than empty.
Another long post... I apologize.
TL:DR: I like TV, perhaps more than I should.
