I have a very trivial complaint. There is an annoying pattern in the world of series television – actors jumping ship from one show to another, leaving in their dust a flood of devoted fans that had grown to love, hate and/or relate to the characters they played.  It was extremely frustrating to learn (right in the middle of Season 3) that one of the lead actresses on a show I have been watching for years had been cast on a new sitcom, on another network altogether. The entire rest of the season was ruined for me, knowing that my favorite character was going to now be killed off or suddenly leave town under asinine circumstances. And of course it’s never the actors you loathe that leave the shows; fan favorites inevitably move on to bigger pastures (i.e. films) due to their increased popularity and marketability. Consider me Bitter, Party of One.
