Am I the only one who hates pregnancy storylines on TV?
I will never understand why so many shows insist on introducing a pregnancy storyline right after a will-they-won’t-they couple gets together. We spend several seasons watching said couple court one another; why not spend time after they’re together exploring that new normal? Why leap immediately to pregnancy, just to introduce a dramatic arc/precocious child?
Zoe/Wade in Hart of Dixie, Schmidt/CeCe in New Girl, Jim/Pam in The Office, just to name a few. It’s become such a lazy and obvious plot device, particularly since the end result is so formulaic and predictable.
Am I alone in groaning whenever a TV character announces a pregnancy?
