Yesterday’s winner was Heather Kelley. Congrats!
Today I’m going to be talking about something we probably all spend too much time in front of: television. I love TV, I keep saying love a lot this week don’t I? I’m just a very passionate person about everything, including TV. There are a lot of really good shows on TV right now, I guess that’s a matter of opinion, but since this is my blog I’m going to go with my own
Again, along with books and music, TV is something that I have always enjoyed. We always watched TV shows as a family growing up. We would sit in the living room during the week after dinner and watch Full House, Home Improvement, and TGIF on ABC. We would beg our parents to let us stay up just a half an hour later to watch another show. As I got older I discovered really good television and shows like SNL and late night talk shows with David Letterman and Jay Leno.
Right now there are several shows that Nicole and I faithfully watch together every week (we both watch some that the other isn’t too crazy about). We are big fans of NBC Thursdays with Community, The Office, Parks and Recreation, 30 Rock, and Outsourced. All shows that are either established or have really come into their own this season. We also are big Gleeks. Yep, I said it, I love Glee and I’m not ashamed of it either!
If you know anything about me at all you’ll know there is one show that will forever be my favorite show that I watched from day one to the series finale and that I own all 6 seasons of on DVD. LOST. One of the best written shows I have ever watched. It was epic and lots of mythology to it, but it was first and foremost about the characters on that show and the development of those characters. If you have not ever seen it then you need to purchase Net Flix for a few months and watch all the seasons streaming online there, it is worth it.
Recently I have discovered a few shows that I have really enjoyed, one of those being Battlestar Galactica. Again, it’s a sci-fi show but it’s so much more than that and you honestly forget about that aspect of it because you get so caught up in the characters, their development, and the story of these group of people surviving in the face of great adversity. Again, all the seasons are on Net Flix.
