I have to start by saying I’m not a television person. Or at least I don’t believe I am. I watch PTI every day, but other than that the shows I catch regularly are few and far between.
Friday Night Lights. The Ultimate Fighter. Jersey Shore (only because of The Situation – every line out of his mouth is a classic). Dexter. Weeds. Modern Family. Community. Eastbound & Down.
Okay, so as you can see my list is long, and getting longer. I recently got into the new FX show Terriers. It’s defnitely setting itself up for future storylines and I love the chemistry between the leads. I also appreciate how real they are. They are two deadbeat PI’s – they don’t always take the high-road. I also really liked the premiere of Boardwalk Empire and am excited to see where that goes.
I have also been told Justified is a great show, as well as Breaking Bad. Most of the time I will wait for the show to hit dvd (at least a few seasons) and then just knock them out. I hate being restricted by time slots and gaps between seasons. I did this with The Wire, Dexter, Weeds, Veronica Mars, the first season of 24 and most recently Party Down – which was another show I was immediately hooked on. I’ve got Breaking Bad in my Netflix cue…
I think the line between film and tv is blurring every year and I guess I’m finding it harder and harder to say I’m not a tv person.
