I am sad.
Sad because I just finished watching the show Triump in the Skies yesterday. The last few episodes of the show were very emotional but thankfully the last epsidoe in itself was a good ending.
I am sad not becuase of the ending of the show, but because that is the end of my 'involvement' in the lives of these people that make up the show.
I know. They are actors.
I know. It is just a show.
Sometimes when the whole family sits down for an English movie, there would be sad and hilarious scenes. My sister and husband would be laughing out loud. And then the scene is sad, my sister would cry. But I would remain neutral throughout that 2 hour or more movie.
I come to realize that I only cry and laugh when I watch Chinese serials. I need to be 'involved' in the 'life' of the person first before I can truly share in his/her happiness and sadness.
What about you? I know some of you do not actually watch Chinese serials at all. But do you laugh/cry in English 2/3 hour movies?
