Vacuum after completing a heart-warming series

This was a poster created after I completed Homeland, a series on Disney plus Hotstar. It was a part of my day for about 3 and a half months . The last episode was overwhelming . It left me sense of contentment too, not asking for more.

Over the last two years, I used to see the poster of Homeland come up as an option on the screen of Hotstar, but chose to move on to something else, damn, these people running our devices do know us better than us.

Homeland is an American espionage thriller television series developed by Howard Gordon and Alex Gansa based on the Israeli series Prisoners of War. The series stars Claire Danes as Cathie Mathison, a CIA officer with bipolar disorder and Damian Lewis as Nicolas Brody, a Marine Corps Scout Sniper.   Brody was held captive as a prisoner of war, and Mathison becomes convinced that he was “turned” by the enemy and poses a threat to the United States. The series storyline grows from this premise, together with Mathison’s ongoing covert work. The series also stars Mandy Patinkin as Saul Berenson and Rupert Friend as Peter Quinn.

When the series comes to an end, I usually look up the characters on Social Media, I began this after Modern Family. Somehow I do that only after the series ended, except for Prison Break where I looked up Wentworth Miller who plays Michael Scofield, after his apparent passing away in the series. I realised this was a vacuum I was trying to fill in, as I was so used to these characters being a part of my life, apart from my family, work, near and dear.

I used to watch the making, the interviews of the characters, read short articles or posts about them. It was like I was saying Bye in a slow manner.

It is difficult to let go some people or things who have been a part of your life, so I believe we need to give it the time it takes, recall memories, like I did in the form of watching the making of the series, give it the love we have, cherish the memories, get to know them a little more and then say the final goodbye, only to re-start the journey again with a new set of characters waiting to find place in our hearts.

Which was the series that left you with a vacuum?
