Did My Friend Deserve This Text From Me?

Does the message "Oh yeah same haha" read like a blowoff text? No punctuation, little emotion, and arguably the second-worst laughing word known to the iOS dictionary. (Lol would have been a genuine "fuck you.") It does? Good, because that's what I was going for.

When the Schitt's Creek finale aired on April 7, 2020, I, like many viewers watching the show in April of 2020, cried. There was a lot to cry about, not only from the episode but just, like, the general world? You remember April 2020.

But now? I'm not crying so much. Some might say, I'm even smiling (occasionally). I've moved on from the Schitt's Creek finale and have watched approximately 1.8 million additional hours of television since that date. So why is my friend bugging me about it now?

I've tried to figure out how to explain this without sounding like a true monster, but there's really no way. For some reason, I get extremely annoyed when people want to have a full on conversation about a show that they're late to. I did my part and watched the show in normal time to be apart of the cultural conversations. But I didn't sign up to talk about these shows — let alone invest emotional time and energy — in perpetuity. Is that so wrong?

This is just one of the things that I discuss on today's Pop Chaser. I also talk about some major RHONY rumors, the new Netflix movies, and what I'm going to be watching this week.

Listen to the new episode of Pop Chaser below, or on Apple, Spotify, or wherever you listen to your podcasts! And don't forget to take a look at The Dipp's other weekly podcast, TV. Watch. Repeat., in which Kate and I delve into the histories of some of your favorite TV shows.
