Pass the remote…
We are a big TV family in my house. We have five TV’s. Six, if you count the one my husband turned into a giant computer monitor, but we also use it as a TV sometimes when we need to record something off the internet. Yanno…when the DVR already has two things going and you can’t add a third. And eight if you count the two in the extra bedroom/my office, that have been sent to “unloved television storage”
Yeah. We probably have issues.
DVR, in my opinion, is the greatest thing ever created, because it feeds our addiction. The new TV show season is a grand event that requires hours of looking up season premiere dates and making a long list so that we can be sure to set up recording times.
Now, in somewhat of a defense, at least for me, it’s research.
Uh huh. Really. By that, I mean to say, I’m a visual person. My stories can’t just come from words on a page. I have to see them like a movie. I say “cut” and they try again. I have to see the body language, the facial expressions, all that.
So when I watch a show, I’m constantly watching that. I’m studying body language, miniscule expressions, an eye narrowing or look that can convey a message in seconds but will take a whole paragraph to describe in words.
Some of my favorite shows, in no other order than how they fall out of my brain…
Haven (and this is first because I’m so in love with it)
Unforgettable (new find…and loving it)
Person of Interest (another new find)
Hawaii Five O (because Alex O’Loughlin is the hottest man on earth)
Castle (because it’s CASTLE!!!)
Sons of Anarchy (love the dark side of people)
Vampire Diaries (love the misunderstood bad vampire!)
Being Human (don’t know if coming back, but loved it)
Fringe (this one’s wearing thin, but I’m still watching)
Nikita (because I love that she always gets away and always wins)
Warehouse 13 (because it’s weird and funny and I want to work there)
Necessary Roughness (love the main character, she’s awesome)
Rizzoli and Isles (love these opposite character partners so much)
Hell’s Kitchen (when it’s in season) (love Gordon Ramsey)
Eureka (another weird one that’s just funny)
I’m sure there are more, but I’m going off memory and picturing my DVR recorded list. Hubby also likes Falling Skies, Terra Nova, American Chopper, and a few others that are okay but I won’t crumble if I miss them.
What are your favorites? And if you don’t do TV….explain that to me. Because I’m not sure I know that language! LOL 🙂
