Greek Ends, Life Goes On

If you don’t watch Greek or haven’t watched the finale, go ahead and skip this first paragraph:

Anyone else a huge ABC’s Family Greek fan? I cannot believe it just ended last night. I understand that all good things must come to an end, and I will even give you that this show was coming to its logical end, but I really wish they were given a full season to wrap things up. It seems like the show was cancelled a few episodes in to this season, and they had to tie up all their loose ends. Fast. And they made all lawyers look evil in the process. “You have to choose between your future and your friends.” Really horribly unrealistic law professor? But I digress. Ignoring the bit where they sent Casey and Evan to law school and didn’t know how to handle it, I found this to be an amazing season. The entire show was a surprise to me. It was the little show that could, with great characters that evolved over the series, witty jokes, realistic and unrealistic college moments alike, and their running joke with the Plain White Tees as frat brothers. When the show began – and even up to mid-way last season – I didn’t want Casey and Cappie together, but by the end they proved that they deserve to be with each other. The last two episodes were rushed and somewhat messy, but overall Greek stands tall as one of my favorite shows. Now Army Wives is my favorite hour long show on TV. How sad is that?

Back to your regularly scheduled program:

Pilates felt so difficult last night. I think it’s because I used my ab muscles a lot when I was running on Sunday. I felt beat and so darn hungry by the time class was over. When I came home, I immediately made dinner. I combined left over veggie fried rice from a nearby Malaysian place with a bunch of tofu. I know a lot of people say that tofu unseasoned has no flavor, but I really enjoy it. I was still hungry after dinner – why am I just ravenous some nights – so during Greek I enjoyed some frozen yogurt. After dealing with the end of Greek, I ended the night by starting a new book.  I am only two chapters into The Circus in Winter, but I can tell this is going to be a good one. My goal is to read 25 books in 2011, and so far I’ve gotten through 6. The last book I was reading, I had to abandoned because it was still boring me 200 pages in. I hate giving up a book, but sometimes it’s just not worth the effort.

Any book recommendations?

  1. Haha I used to love Greek! I watched the first 2 seasons, but then my long list of DVRd shows got cut down when I started my part time MBA. Sad to see it go, but I guess I’m not surprised she ended up with Cappie, they loved stringing that along!

  2. I also used to love Greek! I watched it pretty religiously during my first year or two of grad school, but it eventually somehow fell off my must-watch list. Sounds like I might need to add the seasons I missed to my Netflix queue.

  3. I checked my FB last night and there were so many posts about Greek. Perhaps I should catch it on Netflix sometime??

    I am reading The Wedding Girl by Madeleine Wickam and am enjoying it so far.

    PS-On the series finale for GG-I’m sad 😦

    • You should try it out on Netflix. It’s really a great show, especially since you said you were Greek in college. Thanks for the book rec! Also, it is sad to leave GG. I have rewatched the show so many times. I don’t like the last season (it was done by a different director w/a different vision), but I do really enjoy the last episode.
