let's talk about TV.
i've tried reallll hard to drop-kick TV back to the third grade, but that's just not going to happen- i'm more invested in my shows than ever. such good TV on right now.
let's talk about the Bachelor:
ok, is it just me, or is Ben a total skank? i mean he kisses everybody and just keeps the hot girls. ok, i guess that's not really unique to bachelor Ben, but it seems especially prominent this season. this year M and i made guesses on who he'd pick on the first episode. i'm standing by my unfortunate, yet seemingly accurate guess: he's going for the model, Courtney. typical. i really want him to pick Kacie B (my runner-up second guess)- but they never seem to pick the obvious-best option for them, but rather the hot-irresistible-sleezy-babe. why do i enjoy this garbage so much?
let's talk about American Idol:
is it weird that i don't miss Simon Cowell at all? and that i love the chemistry of Steven Tyler's hilarity with J-Lo's diva-sweet-gorgeousness and Randy's chill swagger? i get the chills an embarrassingly-huge amount of times while watching the show.
let's talk about Alcatraz:
this show is fuh-reeeakky. seriously. i cover my head with the blanket and/or cover my ears at least 4 times every episode. and yet i have to know what the crap is going on. what the crap is going on!!!??? such a creepy, weird show. and pretty cool to see my stomping ground on a show. San Fran is a beautiful city, even filmed with a bunch of whack-job-criminals running wild.
let's talk about Parenthood:
does anybody out there watch this show? it doesn't start here until 10:00 pm on Tuesday nights- so usually i watch it on a night that M goes and plays basketball with his buddies...hence, this has kind of become my show. i confess, i started watching because i'm a total Lauren Graham fan (yes, i'm a Gilmore Girls lover)...and at first i thought it was wayyyy overkill-dramatic. but now, i am totally invested and love the cast and conflicts that come up - it feels so much like real family life.
let's talk about Modern Family:
i'm sick of Modern Family taking random breaks. fer reals. sure, some stuff makes me squirm more than i like, but for the most part i can guarantee more than a few genuine-belly laughs while watching. i love Phil Dunphy's adorableness so much.
let's talk about New Girl:
ok, i'm ready to admit that i watch this show. sure, it's sometimes doused with sexual innuendo (why do they have to do that?). and yes, it's totally dorky. but this is my favorite show on television right now. i love the cast. i love the dialogue. and duh, i am part of the Zooey Deschanel craze- who isn't? she's adorable, funny, and rocks a lot of polka dots. i want to be her.
let's talk about how my life isn't entirely pathetic:
though it may seem to you and my friends that all i do is watch tv and sit around and play scramble with friends, we do like to mix it up and have a lot of fun too. hence, going to the California Academy of Science today. it was the most gorgeous, clear day in San Francisco- and such a much-needed family fun day...away from the TV and couch and laziness that winter bribes me & my people to succumb to. i love my people. a whole lot. thanks for taking the day to spoil us, Mr. M.
p.s.s. i know i probably shouldn't ask this- but whatevs: any favorite shows that i should add to my list? only really good ones, please. :)
