I almost kissed the guy from Charter as he left our home in late January. why? Well I’ll tell you. He gave me one of the greatest gifts a person can get. A beauty to behold and truly a life changing device.
We got a DVR.
For most people, a DVR is a simple piece of equipment that makes watching television a little more convenient, but for me, it is something almost too wonderful for words.
I’m scared to admit this because I’d hate for you to think I’m mindless, a loser, and have no life, but I’m just going to say it: I LOVE watching TV. LOVE it. Maybe it’s just because I love getting caught up in a good story, or perhaps I’m just a sucker for drama…. but I’m slightly, and a bit shamefully, in a little bit of love with TV.
I’m a busy girl, though, so I unfortunately have little time for TV. Seriously, how could I possibly squeeze in all my favorite shows when I’m busy shooting sessions, taking care of my family, and maintaining healthy relationships with my friends, amidst a slew of other things? A night spent in front of the TV is an anomaly in my life, but when those days do suddenly appear, I’m just about as happy as I can be. But now that I have DVR, I can watch my faves whenever I want. Stupendous.
So, it’s Monday and I’m still in a sugar coma from all the candy I ate yesterday (You had me at Hello, chocolate bunny), and in honor of my little obsession with the boob tube, I’ve compiled a list of my favorite programs and why I love them so much for your viewing pleasure :).
Well, duh. Of course this would top my list of favorite shows. If you follow me on Twitter or are my friend on Facebook, you’ve see my absolute LOST geekiness on display. Although I’ve been less than thrilled with this season (up until the Richard episode… oh my goodness, that was amazing!!), I’m so looking forward to having all our questions answer and seeing a redemptive story unfold.
If you’ve ever worked in an office, you know at a least one of these characters. For me, it’s Michael Scott. Yeah, that’s right… when I worked my 9-5 job many years ago, my boss was sometimes just like Michael Scott. He’d yell “Get me Armani on the phone!” from his office, or sometimes he’d lay on the floor and demonstrate the newest ab exercise he had learned. I think Phillis worked a few doors down from me, and Dwight, yeah, he was there too :).
R.I.P., Laguna Beach. You weren’t very creative or realistic, but I for some reason couldn’t stop watching you. PS, I still hate you, Kristen.
Ok, now I’m a little embarrassed to admit this, but I have not missed one second of the Bachelor for the last 3 seasons. I know it’s staged and audacious and the whole premise really is ludicrous, BUT, I think it’s an interesting study of what a guy or girl is willing to put up with on the quest for love. And , of course, I love the mid-show discussion on facebook :).
One of the funniest new shows on TV. Quick wit, great characters, and clever writing make me love this show more and more every week. That, and the Abed and Troy segment at the end of each show… those guys crack me up.
I am never home when this show is on, so I watch it on Hulu, and it’s one of the highlights of my week. That little Columbian kid who talks like he’s 30 kills me. And Phil Dumfy… so dumb… so hilarious.
Although it’s a long show which could totally be condensed into 45 minutes or less, I still watch it every week on hulu. For some reason, I always feel sick after I watch it, though. Maybe it’s all the candy I eat during the show….
Tina Fey. Need I say more?
So who do you think will win? My guess is that it’s gonna be Crystal Bowersox, but I kinda love Andrew Garcia. But please, American Idol Producers, please nix those group performances. They stink. always.
Just started watching this new show, and I’m addicted already. I think it’s going to develop into something really worth watching.
I’ll admit that this show is unbelievably silly and most of the actors have little to no musical talent, BUT I can’t stop watching it! I don’t know what draws me to it… it must be all the 80’s music..
So now that I’ve blown my cover as to what a serious dork I am, it’s your turn to join in the conversation :). And to inaugurate my new blog, I think a contest is in order…. and all you have to do to enter is leave a comment on this bog post with your favorite TV show and why you like it. I’ll pick a winner at random tomorrow at 9am, and that random commenter will receive a $25 iTunes gift card, which you can use to buy more TV shows for your iPod :).
