Yes. I know. My aversion to this series is practically pathological. It has a lot to do with my nature, which is essentially contrary.
Ken Cannon tried to watch a little of it last night. He sort of casually turned it on and pretended he didn't notice what was on and that if somehow he did that, I wouldn't notice either. So just to humor him I tried to watch DA for a minute--but then Anna started crying, crying, crying, and I left the room because I AM SO SICK OF THESE PEOPLE being stupid. Season after season. The props change, but the characters don't. They just keep on being stupid.
And suddenly it occurred to me that this is why I get impatient with soap operas. Nobody really grows or changes, unlike what happens in a novel.
Or at least the kinds of novels I like.
