Overall, I’m pretty excited for this year to end because of how awful it truly was. I am ready for the new year, and New Year’s Eve for that matter. Unfortunately, as much as I wish it would be just like a TV show, New Year’s Eve never really is. The night is FILLED with a ton of unrealistic expectations. For me personally, I expect to be awake until one AM partying with my friends, but I know that definitely won’t be happening, since I am lazy AF and tired 24/7. I also expect Nick Jonas to walk into my house and kiss me at 12 AM, but that also will (probably) not happen. I mean, in a perfect world maybe it would. But, we clearly do not live in a perfect world, so we have to result to watching our perfect worlds be played by over-dramatic characters on TV.
I’m not saying that every show on television has to be the most realistic thing out there, but it would be great, for once, to see one realistic portrayal of New Year’s Eve. I mean, how many of us are REALLY going to be partying underground in a subway car? Hopefully none of you. But, it is fun to watch these ridiculous moments, so take a look at the most unrealistic TV New Year’s Eve moments that you will probably never experience:
The OC, Season One, Episode 14Sure, in your wildest fantasies, the cute boy you like will show up with five seconds left in the year to tell you he loves you, while you attend a glamorous party wearing a dress made for a celebrity at an award show. But, realistically, he won't. Even though Ryan and Marissa were kind of cute in season one, it led me to believe that magic things like this actually happen on NYE. In reality, I am always tired AF and in bed by 12:30, and no one has proclaimed their love for me.
Gossip Girl, Season Five, Episode 11Season five of Gossip Girl was weird. Dan and Serena were broken up, but he still leaned in for a kiss at 12 AM, even though he was semi-crushing on her BEST FRIEND at the time. Will your ex-boyfriend who you still secretly love make a gesture like this during NYE? Probably not. In fact, chances are, you two won't even be in the same place.
Friends, Season Six, Episode 10Remember that episode of Friends when Ross and Monica perform a REALLY weird dance routine and end up on TV? That like... won't happen to you. Honestly, it's probably for the best. You don't want your big break to be you and your brother doing a weird chicken dance type thing in front of millions of people watching.
Boy Meets World, Season Three Episode 10During this episode of Boy Meets World, the gang ends up throwing a party in a subway car after the train breaks down. I mean, I GUESS this could happen if a subway car breaks down and you're stuck there at midnight. But what would more likely happen is that everyone would get really, really angry, and someone would do something insane out of rage and the night would end surrounded by cops, and someone would have a panic attack because they are stuck inside a subway car.
Modern Family, Season Four, Episode 11Modern Family has some crazy moments, but they always seem to get a little more extra around the holidays. For example, the episode where they go on a family New Year's trip and end up accidentally running into a nudist colony is a little... much. That doesn't really happen. And even if it does, I doubt you would handle it as badly as they did.
Friends, Season Five, Episode 11Again, friends has some pretty weird situations, but this one is actually kind of realistic. The friends all recite their New Year's Resolutions and end up breaking them during the course of the episode. Honestly, you probably will break your resolution, if you even make one, but you won't ruin it as quickly as they did. You'll probably get a good month or so out of it. Good luck!
That '70s Show, Season Eight, Episode 22Again with the "long-lost love" thing. Donna's ex-boyfriend shows up on New Year's saying he has "changed," so all is forgiven. Like, the fact that he was absent for an entire season is just completely forgotten and they are a happy couple again. WTF? Life doesn't work like that. Even though it's New Year's and you're supposed to start over, that doesn't mean you can forgive people for leaving you!
