Yeah, I know what you mean. I am still able to enjoy it because I never watch it more than maybe twice a week? And I know exactly what you mean by the shows being predictable.
Always the same fricken' story line... which is why I really can't watch a whole bunch at once. Or I become aggravated and moody. lol
The only reason that I am afraid of shipping glass or things that can break easy is because it turns into a mess when it does break. People blame each other and it just gets ugly. I pack things as good as possible so that there is not a problem but things happen. I have been burnt by people before and I have had people say somethings broken but unable to show proof that it was broken or unwilling to ship it back.
