Sunday Struggles: The Ups and Downs of Sunday Night TV

I told you how crazy Thursday night television is (https://sarahmarieh.wordpress.com/2014/02/28/the-emotional-but-wonderful-struggles-of-thursday-night-television/), and last night I realized Sunday is also kind of a roller-coaster.

It’s time for Once Upon a Time!

Aw, Snow White and Charming are so cute! So is the rest of their family:

A new character from your childhood is introduced:

Then something terrible happens to one of the characters (usually one of your favorite Disney princesses):

Regina/The Evil Queen and/or Mr. Gold/Rumpelstiltskin do something to jeopardize the whole plan:

You think everything is going to be OK, until the last 30 seconds when the show ends on a cliffhanger:

Revenge is starting, and you know by the first 5 minutes whether it’s going to be an epic episode or not:

Time to check on the Gallaghers on Shameless (you’re obviously taping it and watching during the commercials of Revenge). One of the kids is up to no good:

Back on Revenge, Emily and Victoria are currently trying to out sass each other (and you’re loving every minute of it):

Then someone on Shameless does something so, well, shameless, that you can’t believe what you’re seeing:

And right after one of the characters does something that makes you laugh out loud:

Back on Revenge, Emily– or whoever is out for blood on this particular episode– is SO close to succeeding…

But doesn’t, and the episode ends (usually leaving you unsatisfied):

Back to Shameless, the last 10 minutes of the episode usually leaves you feeling a little bit of everything:
yes-wait-wtf

You turn on Girls, and immediately relate to one of the character’s story-lines:

Hannah, Marnie or Shoshanna say something quotable and you have to write it down or tweet it (I’d include Jessa, but let’s face it, nothing she says or does ever makes sense):

One of the girls self-sabotages themselves for the millionth time over the course of the series:

After the episode ends, you flip to Lindsay Lohan’s reality show, Lindsay, on the Oprah Network (you would be recording it or watching it later, but the last half hour is more than enough):

Lindsay talks about how different she is now that she’s out of treatment:

She makes a reference to Mean Girls (or another one of her popular movies):

Lindsay’s “people” try to help her or someone calls her on the phone and she responds rudely:

Repeat 2-3 times: Lindsay talks about how different she is now that she’s out of treatment:

And finally: recover, and get ready for next week.
