My TV List

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:

Bones. I started watching Bones because Angel is on it and it’s turned out to be one of my favorites. The crime solving part is pretty mundane but the characters are fabulous.

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.

Torchwood. This is my favorite of my news shows this season. I never watched Doctor Who (netflix-ing, in progress) but I added this on a whim and LOVE it. Captain Jack is my hero.

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.

Pushing Daisies. I started watching this show because of the Wonderfalls connection. I was undecided after the first episode but it’s grown on me. I love the characters and the loopy tone.

Weeds. This is one of the few shows Bob and I watch together and we LOVE it. Great characters and insane story twists.

Other regular shows not reviewed: The 4400, Psych, Simpsons, The Daily Show and At the Movies with Ebert & Roeper.
