I can admit I am a TV junkie. I used to be horrible and now I am not as horrible. It was a time I didn’t leave the house and scheduled everything around my favorite TV shows. If that meant staying in on a friday night or rescheduling a date… then so be it. Now I have grown and we have TiVo and the internet.
For a light weight junkie like myself it has become extremely hard to keep up with all the great shows out there. I hate when I see facebook status that says, *——- is the best show on television.” If it’s a show I have never seen before I …… I panic. Why am I not watching this show? If it is truly the best show on television, then I should know about it. For example; Mad Men. When Mad Men first hit the small screen I would hear the occasional praise about the show. Nothing too serious. But when it started winning Emmys, I started to get nervous. How did I miss this show? Why am I not watching it. Being the pretentious TV snob that I am, I rented the first season. Sure it started off slow for me. And I found it quite boring. But the snob in me kept watching. I forced myself to love it. And now I love it. The same happened with Glee. I love both shows now. Why? Well mainly because I grew tired of getting left out of conversations involving the shows while in social settings. It sucked.
So here are the shows I keep hearing about that I need to watch. Once I have seen the show I will give you my two cents and let you know if it’s made it into my TV rotation.
If you know of any other shows I should watch, please leave me a comment. I will watch the show and then post a review.
