I realize this is a bit of a weird topic for me, but I have a confession. I love watching TV. I just adore it. Nothing makes me happier than catching a NCIS or a Bones marathon early in the day and settling in to watch it. I even admit to watching marathons of Project Runway and America’s Next Top Model.
What is it about marathons that are so appealing?
I actually discovered two of my favorite shoes through marathons. Soon after USA (which is my absolute, hands-down favorite network) starting airing reruns of NCIS, I watched an episode when there wasn’t anything else on. Four hours later, I realized that I had found an amazing show and vowed to never leave my couch. I did the same thing with Bones a few weeks ago. I had always heard it was a great show, but had never really watched it. Well now I love it so much, I’ve incorporated it into my fall TV lineup.
Yes, I have a fall TV lineup. Don’t judge me. 🙂
I haven’t yet allowed myself to have a show for every time block. And really if I ever get to that point, I may need to be committed for TV addiction. This is really the first year in a very long time that I’ve been able to get excited about new shows and watch them when they actually come on, instead of online like I’ve had to do in the past. I’ve always had work or class at night and in undergrad there was way more interesting things to do than watch new shows.
So this year, I’ve been able to dive into 4 new shows without fear of missing an episode. My only problem is that some of them come on at inconvenient times. Lucky for me, we have OnDemand, which allows me to indulge myself and catch up on my shows during the weekend.
So what is my fall TV line up? Here it is:
I don’t have any shows that come on over the weekend, so that’s when I watch Chase and The Event (I’m really confused but determined not to miss anything in case it does become the new Lost), and anything else that looks really exciting/interesting.
So clearly, I really like to watch TV. I admit I’m not totally sold on Chase or The Event yet, but I’m willing to give them a shot. I know there are other shows out there, but I either haven’t found them, or we don’t get that channel on demand.
What are you watching this fall? Have you discovered an awesome show?
