Today's T-13 is about TV shows I watch. DH and I don't watch much "live" TV. We have a DVR, so we record most everything and then watch it later so we can skim the commercials.
1.) LOST ~ While I'm pissed off their "answers" to questions raises more questions, I'm still hooked. And I'm also pissed the characters don't ask the questions I would ask if in the same damn situation. Kate and Juliette are chased by the black fog and not 30 seconds after it leaves, Kate's upset that Juliette had a key to her handcuffs? WTF? ASK ABOUT THE GALLDARN FOG, WOMAN!! Or even the force field. Or where they came from. Why are they in the commune? How do they know so much about them? Ack, I'm pulling out my hair.
2.) Heroes ~ I. Love. This. Show. It's the best show on TV, in my opinion. It doesn't pull any punches. It's in your face. There's no such thing as "long, drawn out" storylines. Wham! Bam! What the hell was that? OMG, effing awesome! And it's still ONLY in it's first season. Holy crap, how can they top it?
3.) Grey's Anatomy ~ DH and I just recently got in this show, so we're not watching it week to week yet. We're still on the Season 2 DVD's. But it's a really good show. We're love it so far.
4.) Thank God You're Here ~ an improv comedy show that just premiered on Monday. It's pretty darn funny. But it's one of *those* shows that will probably be canceled if it doesn't catch on quick.
5.) Planet Earth ~ If you don't have an HD TV, I'm sorry for you. This show is AWESOME. It's on Discovery HD and the images they've captured are so amazing. My only nitpick is Segourney Weaver (the narrator) says "planet Earth" way too many times. "This is the biggest desert on planet Earth." "This is the only place this species is found on planet Earth". LOL Other than that, go watch this show in HD. You'll be amazed.
6.) Prison Break ~ DH and I used to watch this show religiously. However, now our ardor has cooled since they've broken out of prison. We have about 5 episodes yet to watch on our DVR. Not sure if we'll go back to it. As much as I luv Wentworth Miller, even the intrigue about the President isn't enough to keep me going. I'm not interested in the side plots. I just want 100% Linc and Michael. Unfortunately, they pepper the show with the other prisoners' stories. Boring.
7.) Avatar: The Last Airbender ~ Yes, we watch a cartoon. It's AWESOME. If you've only seen glimpses of it and thought it was weird, well, what anime isn't weird?? But this show has the added bonus of being created by American guys. So that strange Japanese humor isn't there. The characters are animated with American body language and humor, and the plot throughout is wonderful, not to mention the imagination behind all that bending. "Bending" means able to manipulate by some magical force the four elements of nature: Water, Earth, Fire, Air. Only the Avatar can bend all four. Otherwise, you're only a specialist in one element. Excellent show. And where the HELL is Season Three, people???
8.) The Sopranos ~ If you can get past the cussing, murder, and general disregard for human life, then you'll like this show. It's "glory days" were around Season 3. DH and I have watched all the seasons. This last season has been luke-warm, but we've been with it this far, seems like we should at least finish the show.
9.) Stargate SG1 ~ As if this wasn't obvious for those of you who visit my BEAST blog. LOL Love this show. We haven't watched this show from day one, but we HAVE bought and watched all the seasons. Has this show come back from it's long-ass break yet? DH and I have it scheduled to record in the DVR, but all it records are fricken' repeats. If this show is ending, they better get their heads out of their butts and air the final shows already!
10.) Stargate Atlantis ~ Another obvious show I watch. I love Dr. McKaY and Col. Sheppard. And I can't help but pray to the Stargate gods that DJ Yummy will find a permanent home in the Pegasus galaxy. DJ Yummy = Daniel Jackson = Michael Shanks. Whew baby!
11.) Battlestar Galactica ~ Excellent show, actually nothing like the original show of old with the same title. Sure, it's got humans battling the Cylons, but the producers have made the show their own, with KICK ASS space battles and great special effects. The jittery camera and zoom in shots they do all the time in space was lifted right from the Firefly/Serenity 'Verse. Of course, it could be because the SAME company does the effects for BG. :) Did you know there's a shot in the movie pilot that shows the Serenity ship from Firefly flying in the sky? The show earned the ultimate "cool" factor from me because of that. :P
12.) House ~ Love this show too. DH and I have actually stopped watching this season, because we didn't set it up in our DVR and now we're too far behind to try and catch up. But we WILL watch this season when it's available on DVD. In fact, I'm going insane from not having my House fix. Don't you DARE say one word about what's going on right now.
13.) The Office ~ DH and I have watched this show from day one, even the original BBC "Office" starring Ricky Gervais. My God, everytime I watch this show, I fear I'm going to pee my pants. It's that "uncomfortable" kind of comedy that really tickles my funny bone. Dwight is so over-the-top it's fabulous. I just wish the writers would get off their butts and give us some payoff between Jim and Pam. I mean come on. Quit stringing us along already!!
There you have it. Thirteen shows I watch. :)
