Well it has finally happened. It is official – I am addicted to Offspring. I never thought I would say this. You see a while ago now I purchased the first season on DVD. Everyone seemed to love it and I wanted to know what all the fuss was about. I needed some company during the wet season and thought this would be perfect, I mean to say – I had about a million seasons to catch up on and all. Things didn’t go as planned, I watched 2 episodes and couldn’t watch another one. I found Nina beyond annoying, with all of her self doubt and little voices in her head. I just couldn’t bear to watch another episode. Until this season on TV. I watched an episode one night earlier this season and bam, I was hooked.
So yes, I am on board and look forward to Offspring each week and even like Nina and all the little voices in her head. You know you are getting old when your idea of a good night involves putting the children & husband to bed and staying up late, all by yourself with a glass of wine and some bad food watching a double episode of Offspring that you had previously recorded. The season finale is just about upon us and I have only just started watching, surely this can’t be the very end can it?
I must say though, I am still confused how Norman Gunstan fits into things……who the hell is Phillip. Can someone PLEASE tell me. I am going to have to go back to the beginning and watch it all, aren’t I?!?! And how did Zara suddenly end up with 2 children. Have I missed something, have I had a huge blow to the head? I thought she only just had her first baby with ol’ what’s his name (ok, so I haven’t been watching it for that long and don’t know Nina’s brothers name) and they got married while she was giving birth? I am so confused. Please help.
And what about Thomas….what is going to happen there do you think? What a low down dirty dog, or is he? Is there a perfectly good explanation? Surely not! I prefer Leo anyway. Oh and Lawrence…..I have the biggest crush on him, what a spunk! So clean cut. I am really disappointed that Billy has ditched him, he was so good for her. Do you think I would feel this way if I had watched it right from the beginning?
So there is my dirty little secret and confession. I love Offspring. Now – please chime in and comment with your Offspring updates – who the hell is Phillip?
