At the gym last night, they were showing a bit on the People show on CNN about Denzel Washington. The sound wasn't on, and neither was the closed-captioning. I recognized a lot of the movies that he was in, but they seemed to show him on a major network drama when he was pretty young, and I didn't know what it was. So today I looked up Denzel Washington on the Internet Movie Database, and found that he was on St. Elsewhere. I always have to look at the trivia, so I did, and it said:
The final scene of the final episode featured one of the most unexpected plot twists in television history. The twist has since been copied at least once: Newhart (1982).Needless to say, I was intrigued. So I looked up this famous episode of St. Elsewhere, and the actual ending sounds sort of clever, sort of stupid, although I can't really judge having never seen the show. But then a little tidbit about the credits of the final show came up, and I've been on a downer ever since. You can look it up if you want. Suffice to say, I'm kind of unreasonably sensitive about pets, especially cats, even patently imaginary ones. Ugh...so disturbing.
So that's how my mind works.
