Remember when I used to write hilarious posts about TV shows that I watch? Yeah, I know it's a little fuzzy. Well, I recently got DVR. That's right, welcome me to 2005. You're the first one to make that joke. In all seriousness, I have NO idea how I survived without this technology and my quality of life has been dramatically improved.
So without further ado - an update on all of my faves:
24: I can't even call this a favorite anymore. Whoever is in charge of this show should be put to sleep - or maybe inhale a fatal pathogen and slowly wither away before our eyes. In my 24 Examined post I maintained that at this point all you have to do is watch the "Previously on 24" segment and the final tick tock to stay current. I've been testing this theory and I'm right. This show was a brilliant concept that unfortunately has not evolved at all. Please send rescue, damn it.
Chelsea Lately: If all my DVR recorded was Chelsea Lately I'd still pay for it. Unclear how it took me so long to discover this.
Heroes: Unfortunately I was forced to abandon this show when the 7th time traveling version of Peter Petrelli showed up. If this ship has somehow been righted please let me know.
LOST: Speaking of gratutious time travel...
How I Met Your Mother: Still one of the best shows on TV - and the only show I refuse to eat dinner while watching for fear of accidentally choking on food while laughing. Spread the gospel people.
NCIS: As I mature, my crime scene show interests continue to evolve. Law & Order was great until I could figure out who the perp was after the opening scene. Law & Order: SVU provided a more comprehensive case, but eventually convinced me it was only a matter of time before I became a victim of a violent sexual crime. CSI (Las Vegas) was the next obvious stop but after I watched every single episode and my secret boyfriend William Peterson left the show I needed a new home. Enter NCIS. It's funny. Actually really funny - perfectly reflective of real life office dynamics and humor. Toss that in with interesting plots, three handsome leads (the silver fox, the geek, and the jock) and I'm totally conflicted and mildly obsessed.
