    All caught up...

    This may sound odd to some of you, but maybe a select few will understand where I'm coming from. Did you ever get that caught up in a show you actually felt you knew the people on the show; you sometimes tend to live in a fantasy and your waiting patiently for the week to go by so you can re-live it again? I'm so like this with a couple shows. I find myself drifting into their world; trying to forget reality.

    I do!!! Boy do I get caught up in my reality tv people. No one can be as bad as I am...I'm sure of it! I even get these imaginary conversations going on in my head -- it causes insomnia sometimes. I guess it's my adult version of imaginary friends

    I do too. But only if the show's really good.

    Almost, but not quite yet. I've torn myself back to reality before it happened

    Actually, it's called dissociating (or disassociating, depending on whom you ask) and is pretty common when you're avoiding stress. I've done it often enough with Farscape.

    I was that way about the first Big Brother. I felt so entangled with that bunch that I couldn't stand to miss an episode. We were doing a show in Tulsa and I wouldn't get out of the room till that show went off. My husband got a little irritated. I'd rush back to the motel from the show, watch BB and then I was fine to go out for dinner, whatever.

    Yup. It was called Twin Peaks. Sometimes I still go there.......

    I got very caught up in the charecters from the original Star Trek. Of course the show itself lasted less than three years but the charecters will live on for forever.

    There are litterally tons of paperback books written that follow the exploits of the Enterprise and her crew in the years after the show was cancelled. Many were written by fans of the show (and even Bill Shatner) and really know the charecters and follow their very specific idiosyncracies and styles very, very closely.

    When I read one of these books I picture the actual actors in my mind's eye as the charecters in the book are speaking.

    Maybe Star Trek touches a special place because it takes place at a time when there is no racism or sexism, diseases dont kill, surgery is non-evasive etc. Its really paints a positive picture of life in the future and gives hope.
