Nostalgic guilty pleasure, but there's one thing that drives me nuts.
on September 11, 2016
This show encompassed the bulk of my teenage years. I'm not a Christian, and I won't claim it never got preachy or stupid (especially later on), but I have such good memories of watching it. I loved it, and I still enjoy it even with all its flaws. I liked a lot of the episodes of this season, especially Simon's arc in the beginning and Mary falling into a marriage that ultimately worked for her.
But as the title said, one thing drives me nuts. "Charity Begins at Home": In the TV version the song playing over the end was John Mayer's "What The World Needs Now is Love", but the DVD version replaced it with a cheery pop song. That in and of itself doesn't bother me, it wouldn't be the first time a DVD release had to work around music copyrights. No, what bothers me is I can't find the lyrics or even the actual artist name for the DVD's song! Yeah, it's manufactured Disney "country" bubblegum but I really liked it. Who sings it, and how is it not on YouTube?
Ah, well. This season was still a pretty good one, in my book. Not the best, but an improvement over how season 7 began.
