Television is a good way to escape reality and I get very involved with the lives of my favorite television characters the same way I do when reading books.....in fact lately I have been reading the books and watching the TV series....did this with True Blood and just finished the first volume in the Game of Thrones series. Although I was a bit leery when I first heard about The Big C, I really liked the show....love the characters and laughed out loud when Kathy was so excited about a finger nail falling off because it meant to her that the chemo was working. Not everyone gets SEs, but I have found when I don't, it usually means a treatment is not working for me so I could relate her her excitement.
Boardwalk Empire, Hung, Nurse Jackie, Treme', True Blood , The Big C and Game of Thrones are my favorites on the premium channels. I watch Revenge, The Mentalist, sometimes that one with Dana Delaney as a pathologist and I will check to see what is going on with Grey's Anatomy and Private Practice if I think of it, but no longer can keep track of who is sleeping with Whom. I also like Parenthood and am sure if you mentioned a few others would go,Oh, I like that one also. On occasion I will even watch Dancing with the Stars and find it amazing that they keep some of them who are so bad on until the very end. There are some reruns I will watch if I see they are on like Seinfeld and Two and 1/2 men ( like the old ones with Bad Boy Charlie, but the new season with Ashton just doesn't do anything for me) .
I probably sound like I am watching television all the time, but I really am not and in truth am either reading at the same time I have a show on, or I am asleep. TV is a great sleep aid for me and I used to love David Letterman, but have not watched him for years. I like Ellen's show if I am home during the day. Oddly enough even though I love cooking, I do not watch the Food network.
Invariably I like shows they take off.....Like Brothers & Sister's, Saint Elsewhere and Chicago Hope ( a long time ago, The Riches and one about this guy who was a detective and was thrown into another time era, but I forget the name of it (only lasted a season) And then there are some shows I used to watch like the Office, Desperate Housewives, and The Good Wife, but just got away from for some reason.
What are some of your favorites?
