Before I start my regular post, my webhosting has again informed me that I can’t update any content in my account during this upgrade. I haven’t had any problems but just in case I disappear, look for me here.
The Wonderful World of TV
Several years ago, when I was writing, I was very strict about how many TV shows I could have. TV is a terrible time waster.
Then I quit writing and when the new fall season started I tried every single show I was remotely interested in. Since then I’ve been trying to reel it back in and now that I’m writing again, I’m cutting back. But after a long day at the office all I’m good for is a glass of wine, a plate of tacos and TV.
From last year I lost Veronica Mars (boo!) and I gave up on Grey’s Anatomy. Lost and Battlestar Galactica don’t start until January. I hope. If the writers strike ruins Battlestar Galactica I will be one very unhappy camper.
These are my current shows:
Supernatural. This is my favorite guilty pleasure. My ultimate fantasy would be to have Sam and Dean come over and clean my house and then make a Pam sandwich.
Bionic Woman. Every time I mention this show to someone they talk about the 1970’s series, which I did watch, but this show has zero to do with the 1970’s series other than the idea. I don’t love the show but I like it enough to keep watching. It’s like Alias with bionics.
Moonlight. I started watching this show because it’s about vampires and the only thing I love more than vampires is pumpkins. It’s actually pretty lame but I like the main character (vampire) and I can’t stop watching.
Heroes. Heroes is on the bubble for me. I don’t think I’d miss it if I quit but I’m still just interested enough to tune in one more time. One thing I don’t like about this show is it takes itself way too seriously. I also don’t think Peter Petrelli is all that and I can’t stand Niki. I am very curious to see what the David Anders character is up to.
Weeds. This is one of the few shows Bob and I watch together and we LOVE it. Great characters and insane story twists.
