You know how some people "work themselves right out of a job?" I think I've matured myself right out of good mindless entertainment. Or maybe there have been a couple of shows that have raised the bar so high that everything else seems like a waste of time. I don't know. All I know is that I watch very little TV these days. I'm not saying I like it. I'm just saying that is how it is. I WISH there were more shows out there I couldn't live without, but there just flat out aren't.
Here is a list of shows I have now dropped, officially (many I'm embarassed I EVER watched, btw):
Grey's Anatomy- I have zero interest in this show right now which is weird because I BAWLED for a good 20 mintues over the whole Denny thing way back when.
Desperate Housewives- One of the embarassing shows I mentioned above. Totally lame now. Don't care what happens. Don't even want to see commercials about it.
Intervention- If you've seen one addict go to rehab because their family forced them/Jeff VanVandervonvondsen came for a visit & then relapse as soon as the get out, you've seen them all. If they had more eating disorders on there I might tune in again, but the heroin thing is getting old.
Kath & Kim- I had high hopes and big plans of watching this but I have not been impressed. I'm trying to reserve judgment for another couple of episodes but it's hard.
Supernanny- There isn't a technique that she has that I haven't seen already. She calls the same technique different names and calls it a new show. The "Naughty Chair Technique," "The Naughty Bean Bag Technique," and "The Naughty Step Technique".... THEY. ARE. ALL. THE. SAME. TECHNIQUE. Kid gets in trouble and has to sit somewhere for a while. That's THE technique. She's not fooling me anymore.
Shows I'm Keeping/Borderline Obsessed With:
The Office- Fer super duh. The whole Holly/Michael thing makes me giggle & the Jim/Pam issues keep me on my toes. Geniuses I tell ya.
Boston Legal- This is where I get all my current event information from. That David E. Kelly is right on top of things. I heart James Spader & have an unfortunate crush on William Shatner. Plus, Candice Bergen... need I say more? Love her. Maybe this is why I bought a hoodie marketed to retirees??
Heroes- I don't have a clue what is going on but you gotta love a show that makes you look over at your husband at least 5 times and go "What the??" That puppeteer guy just about sent me over the edge though. He took creepy to a whole new level. I am loving/hating the blurring between good & bad though. Suresh=GOOD, Silar=BAD.... ycome can't they just stick to that??? Geniuses I tell ya.
30Rock- Obviously not on yet but I made a paper chain and am counting down to October 30th.
Scrubs- When it returns on ABC... what is up with that? Me & Zach Braff are both from the Garden State sooo... yeah.
So you can see my taste here. If you have any suggestions of shows I might be interested in let me know. I'm OPEN to other shows, but I am getting pickier & pickier in my old age. I hope this doesn't start happening to other areas of my life.
