Over the past month, I have watched a ridiculous amount of TV. I like reading too, but with the carpal tunnel, it’s currently hard for me to hold books. How sad is that?
At any rate, this means I’ve had plenty of time to form opinions on the current TV shows out there. Here area few of my favorites. 🙂
Revenge is an awesome new drama on ABC. I love love love it. I honestly only started watching it b/c the female lead is played by Emily VanCamp (who was on the newly canceled Brothers & Sisters – a show I dearly miss), but the whole show is awesome. Check it out! It is one of those shows you’d really want to start from the beginning if possible though – there’s just a lot of back story going on. Totally worth it though!
Grey’s Anatomy & Private Practice – It’s been interesting seeing how they handle IF issues on these shows lately (Meredith & Derek have chosen to try adoption and Addison is going through IVF). I’m more impressed recently than I was a couple of seasons ago when IF issues first came up and phrases like “hostile uterus” and “I only have 2 eggs left” were erroneously, ridiculous used. I think their writers have gotten a LOT of feedback from the IF community.
The Mentalist – Charlie and I somehow came across this show on its very first episode a couple of years ago, and we have been hooked ever since. Think Law & Order but with more continuous story line and development of really great characters, plus Patrick Jane (the main character) is so freakin’ cool, and I love that he helps solve crimes just by being super attentive to people and paying attention to detail.
Body of Proof – This is a new medical drama…. another Law & Order type show mixed with lots of medical references. Apparently Charlie and I love a good detective show. 🙂
Modern Family – Funny, funny, funny. If you don’t know what this show is, you live under a rock. I love this show – there is no better comedy out there, and I love that though it stereotypes, it does so in an inclusive, accepting way (and not just tolerance). The whole concept of being “tolerant” of other drives me insane, because would you want someone to “tolerate” that you are different or “accept” you for being different? This show is just straight up funny though, and I have yet to find anyone who doesn’t agree!
Two Broke Girls – This is another new show this season that is SO funny. Maybe I like it because I’ve worked in the restaurant industry, but my husband likes it to, so it must have something addicting about it.
LIVE with Regis & Kelly – I used to watch this religiously, though it’s been a few years now since I had a schedule that allowed that. I’ve watched this whole farewell to Regis week, though, and today I was bawling when they sang a take on the classic Rent song Seasons of Love that was all about Regis and his career. It was seriously awesome.
And finally, this isn’t a TV show, but it’s a great article in Vogue that I came across today about a recent wedding that happened in my little town. It’s a nice article, and you gotta love the gorgeous pics.
