Sometimes on gloomy, rainy days….

I just have to watch a little “Everwood” to make myself feel all warm and fuzzy inside.

If I have not already mentioned it, Everwood is the greatest show in the history of television.  You might think that is an exaggeration, but it totally is not.  It is the only tv show that can make me consistently laugh out loud (not little giggles, but actually laughs) and cry at least once during every single episode.  The plot revolved around a brain surgeon from New York who packs up his son and daughter and moves to Everwood, Colorado after his wife dies, but of course it is so much more than that.  The show is kind of like Gilmore Girls (with lots of quick fire pop culture filled dialgue) except that father and son hate each other instead of being best friends.

Everwood is populated with so many phenomenal characters that it would be impossible to list them all, but of course  I will try: Dr. Brown, Ephram, Edna, Irv, Bright, Dr. Abbott, Rose, Amy, Hannah, Nina.  Aaahh, it makes me happy just to list their names.

Unfortunately I came late to the Everwood party.  I saw the last ten minutes of the last episode that ever aired.  I thought it was wonderful, but they never even showed reruns after it was canceled.  Then I found the first season DVD at Wal-Mart for $16 and bought it.  I would advise everyone to go out and buy it right now because it is totally worth whatever it costs.  None of the other seasons have been released (some lame excuse about music rights) but I was really bad and managed to get some bootleg copies.  They are some of my most prized possessions.  I know that is totally wrong, but if evil corporate empires are denying fans the episodes, I feel it is our right to get them by whatever means necessary.

Anyways, now I am just rambling, but I wanted to share my favorite scene that involves a fictional character that I would definitely date, Mr. Bright Abbott.  He starts out in the first season as a typical mean jock, but over the course of the series he screws up, grows up, and turns into a pretty fantastic guy.  Most people get all excited about Amy and Ephram, but I get all gooey over Bright and Hannah because it’s always nice when the popular jocks go out of their comfort zones and fall for the nerdy, plain girl (yes, Hannah is supposed to be unattractive even though she is gorgeous).

Anyway, here is the scene where they first kiss:

    Oh how we’ve missed our beloved Everwood. Even though it’s been gone a couple years now, we continually watch the DVDs over and over. I worked online with tons of other fans on the Everwood Ferris Wheel stunt hoping to win over Dawn Ostroff at the CW. But alas, it was too late. Our stunt might have at least helped in getting ABC Family to air all four seasons of Everwood after WB/CW let it go. That’s how many fans were able to record the last three seasons since Warner wouldn’t release the others. Grrr! The only other show we’ve fallen in love with even remotely close to Everwood quality was Firefly–another show cut before its time. So we alternate watching each one. Seriously. Anyway, it was nice to see Everwood still being talked about. By the way, one of our children are named Brighton. Woohoo!
