“All of this has happened before and will happen again.”
We are not okay.
…but eventually we will be. The show always goes on – episode after episode season after season. The show always goes on because it’s never been about the story, it’s about the characters who happen to be both the protagonists and the antagonists. There is no outside force, no external conflict, no underlying threat other than what we bring upon ourselves. Our story is about adventure, passion, camaraderie, love, pain, and tragedy. Sometimes it’s funny, sometimes it’s sad, sometimes it’s shocking, and sometimes it’s suspenseful. It’s always emotional. The story is always the same it’s just the characters that change. From season to season you see some new faces and say goodbye to some old ones. Sometimes it’s predictable other times it’s not. Eventually even Han Solo has to die…but the show will always go on.
Part drama, part sitcom, part dark comedy. Our show is our generation’s heralding of sex, drugs, and rock n roll. Our desperate attempt to find happily ever after, even though we’re not sure if we believe in it.
