I have a confession. Television is my crack. I am not proud of it. But in my defense, I do not watch just any crap on TV. Ok, maybe some of it is total shit, but not all of it. And because there are few things I enjoy more than learning random facts about people and trying to determine personality from those little things, (that's right, kids, I profile stalk you all) I thought I would put myself on the line and tell you what will keep me on the couch for the next few months. Let the judging begin!
Hoarders on A&E - I am fairly certain this (although well checked) runs in my family. Watching this show is my way of rubbing my nose in it so hopefully, when I have kids, I won't start keeping their fingernail clippings.
No Reservations on The Travel Channel - My husband and I both have huge crushes on Anthony Bourdain. The places, people, and food the show features are always awesome and very interesting. But more than anything the man can write. His narration is always the perfect blend of truly jaded but still hopeful and a little sentimental. I would highly recommend anyone read his book "The Nasty Bits" which is a collection of his essays both before his series started and during taping of earlier seasons.
Pawn Stars on The History Channel - It's like antique roadshow for young people.
How I Met Your Mother on CBS - Legen....wait for it.....dary.
LOST on ABC - I am a sucker for stories that are actually puzzles and make you try figure out what the hell is going on.
Criminal Minds on CBS - Gruesome murders and psycho analysis? Sold.
Glee on Fox (New episodes in April) - As a former theater and speech dork I love this show with every ounce of my soul
CSI on CBS - Yes, I realize this show has probably long since jumped the shark but I have watched it for too long. I am past the point of no return.
The Office on NBC - This show is just funny and I am in love with Jim.
Ghost Adventures on The Travel Channel - Nick and I actually call this show "Douchebags on Parade" cause the hosts of the show are just such fantastic tools. They know they are running a TV show and as such, are great showmen. Terribly entertaining to watch. Also I LOVE old buildings and the history behind them. This show actually does a decent job of discussing and telling anecdotes about the locations they visit.
Finally, should I ever end up channel surfing on the weekend the TV will inevitably end up on one of the following: CNN, Food Network, HGTV, Travel Channel, History Channel, or A&E. And if anyone should ever find out who I need to petition, shank, or sleep with in order to get the show Pushing Daisies back on the air, let me know.
Have a great weekend everyone! And hopefully the weather will be in support of my finishing my rocking chair this week.
