I haven’t had time to watch TV lately. I have missed the first week of the new season. There were a few new shows that looked pretty good but now I can’t remember what they were or where they were. If you have any suggestions for good TV watching please let me know.
At the moment the only thing I really try to watch is The Big Bang. It’s a stupid sitcom but it makes me chuckle and that is really what I am looking for. I tried to get back into ER since it is the last season and they are bringing back a bunch of characters from the old seasons but I haven’t watched in at least six years and I really don’t have a clue who anyone is. I couldn’t get through the first show of this season.
Prime time starts at 7pm in Minnesota. This is a bad time for anyone with kids. When I used to visit my grandparents in Cincinnati I was always annoyed that prime time started an hour later. Now I really wish we had that going on here.
I have On Demand but unless the show was on CBS there isn’t much offered. I’m okay watching the news channels now but after the election I will have nothing to watch.
Anything marked with an asterisk is something we watch with Son. Without is something we watch as adults. Geek powers, ACTIVATE!
-The Venture Brothers
-My Name is Earl*
-Stargate SG-1* (DVDs borrowed)
-Sanctuary* (TiVoed, not watched yet)
-The Daily Show
I love Earl but it’s up against Survivor which I haven’t gotten into so maybe I will watch Earl again. Heroes I meant to get into when it first started but I got busy getting divorced and all so never was able to watch from the beginning. I loved the movie Stargate and watch whenever it is on but haven’t tried the tv show. Do I need background? What is The Venture Brothers and where can I find it. I did take your suggestion of Corner Gas and love it when I can find it.
Well, gee, I thought you had stopped blogging, so I had stopped dropping by. Of course, people have said the same thing about me.
I've had fun catching up on your blog.
I don't watch a lot of TV. I just get broadcast channels, and I don't remember when the shows I like are on. When I tune in I like:
♥Big Bang Theory (like you)
♥The New Adventures of Old Christine (talk about the bondage of self…)
♥Cold Case (enhanced by great period music)
The Venture Brothers is on the Cartoon Network. It’s a spoof of the old Johnny Quest cartoons, and all of the protagonists are petty, neurotic people without much to create any empathy with the viewers, whereas some of the dumber antagonists are hilarious.
Stargate SG-1 starts off as mostly a “monster of the week” sort of show, but it quickly turns into long story arcs, so you’d need to go in order from season 1 through season 10.
