The Border (TV series)

最近努力地看這個加拿大電視劇,講邊境安全,抓恐怖分子、走私犯之類的,因為Hulu馬上要到期(下個月要換Amazon Instant Video試試,之前是看Netflex)。

感想是:加拿大人真的比較,嗯,説天真好像有點不對,或許説是純樸吧。看劇中人物之間的互動,不時會感到“啊,美劇就不會講這種話”。難怪一直覺得加拿大人比較友善,雖然挨著美國,但民風還是有其不同處。

今天看完第三季後,上網查查有沒有第四季在別處可以看,才發現第三季後就被CBC電視臺給砍了。頓時很有上當受騙的感覺!因為每一季的最後一集都會留個懸疑的伏筆,像是主角處於激烈槍戰中,要到下一季才會知道誰活著、誰死了。

下次是不是應該先看看影評,確定沒有被腰斬才看?

但是幾季才算是壽終正寢呢?

每個電視連續劇都有叫停的一天吧。太長的,往往淪於公式化,也不是那麽好看。

這就是典型的人生誖論。喜歡的東西被拿走了,就不爽;但是一直擁有的,很快也就不會喜歡了。用佛教的術語來講,這些就是令我們感官愉悅的事物,最終真的都是徒勞無義的。

我也知道看這些就是浪費自己的時間,陷入一個有又一個的暫時性的有趣當中,但很快就消失或覺得無聊了,於是就再找下一個刺激,就這樣在輪迴裡不停輪轉……奈何習性強大~

願我能很快從習氣中解脫,南無本師釋迦牟尼佛。

Finally finished watching season three on Hulu. The Canadian border security team was in a fierce gunfire in the last episode and without season 4, you can’t tell who would live or die…

And then thanks to Google and Wikipedia, I finally realized that CBC cut this drama series after season 3. So this puzzle would never be solved. It feels like being cheated.

Maybe next time I should check the review before starting watching a TV series.

But every series has the day of ending. Beside, how many seasons can be qualified as a proper ending?

In the end, this is yet another object of sense pleasure (in Buddhism terms), which either ceases to exist or becomes not that interesting anymore if being there for too long. Indeed pointless, all these things.

Yet, propelled by the power of habit, I still indulge in one after another… despite of always ending up with dissatisfaction or lack of excitement. Nowadays I can clearly see myself turning the wheel of samsara round and round.

Elas, may I soon be free from the habitual patterns.
