I love TV. Well, I love hand-picked, watch-it-on-my-laptop TV. I never turn on my actual TV set, (unless I remember to watch Gladiators, which is... never). Why channel surf through crap when I have hand-picked DVDs of goodness I can watch any time?
The bedridden week helped me catch up on a lot of sweet, sweet TV, thanks to Boyfriend's brother. This week, in tribute to both television and the site TV Junior, I'm gonna talk about different shows I've been watching in the past three months. I will put no spoilers, because I can sympathise with watching a show late (being that Boyfriend and I watched all of the Sopranos after the series finale had aired).
Also, don't go giving me any spoilers, either. Even annoying-as-fuck cryptic comments, no thank you. Because one, I'm quite a bit behind on all of them, and two, it doesn't make you look knowledgeable, it makes you look annoying. And you know, hormonal cunt I am, I tend to snap for little reason.
So, let's embrace the wonderful (and awfulness) of TV.
For the record, my all-time favourite shows are Arrested Development (live action) and Futurama (animated). But these posts will mostly be about new (-ish, or still on-air) shows I've been watching lately.
* Finally finished Alias, in all its camp glory. Season five reminded me of Buffy s7 (at the risk of giving anything away, there were just parallels in a few of the themes and storylines).
* 30 Rock is great. It took awhile to get into it (five eps or so) but it's hil-aaarious. Especially Kenneth, in all his unfailing cheer and benign simplicity.
* I like Ugly Betty for camp popcorn viewing, just something to watch while getting ready to leave the house, though I hate, hate, hate the characters of Betty and Henry. And I love the characters of Wilhelmina, Mark, and Amanda (I love her so much).
Much more TV talk next week.
