I’m not young. But I’m the youngest in my family. So I was the one who had to put the aluminum foil on the rabbit ears on our black and white TV and hold them there while my parents and brothers watched TV. “Noooo you moved it too far.” Man, am I glad those days are over.
At any rate, I’ve traveled a long technological pathway to get to May 12, 2015. To this date, where I only watch TV shows that I have never, nor will ever watch. Because I don’t watch TV anymore. And this is how much our world has changed. By TV, I obviously mean cable. I just don’t want to be locked into “It’s Friday night and DALLAS is on!”
What I don’t talk about on this blog, is how politically active I am. So during election seasons I am glued to Twitter, I mean the TV news shows. My favorite is Meet the Press. But virtually all other news I get from Twitter. So what’s a non-TV-watching-gal-like-me supposed to do? Welcome to the Wonderful World of……….
I do absolutely nothing in moderation. Nothing. So when people talk to me about binging on Netflix, they are talking about amateur hour. I look for shows that have about a kazillion episodes a season and have been on for 16 years. I know, I know, there I go again. But when I find a show I love, I hope, hope, hope it will last for a lot of seasons.
Okay, ladies and gentlemen, here are my favorites.
1. NUMB3RS – I’m geeky but am awful at math so this fascinates me plus who doesn’t like crime drama! But I’m on the last season.. AAUUGGHH I better find a fix, I mean a replacement soon.
2. Warehouse 13 – Great and very funny sci-fi. What’s up with only having 3 seasons?
3. Blue Bloods – Need I say more? But I’m not watching the new ones because, repeat after me, I DON’T WATCH TV.
4. Luther – Great, sick, crime drama. Did I say it was cutting edge psychotically sick? Just my opinion, but that is probably why I love it. Hardly any seasons.
5. Once Upon a Time – I thought the premise was way silly, but my son told me to watch it and I remembered to eat occasionally while I plowed through all of the episodes on Netflix.
I’ll stop at 5 for now. Oh and I keep forgetting my promise to write about a book that I’m currently loving or not loving. “Memory Man” by David Baldacci is crazy good!!
