I’ve always been a fan of TV.
There was a point where I was regularly watching more than 20 series in a week, and that was in the days before DVR. Thank goodness I’d solved that mystery of taping one thing while watching another on my Memorex VCR.
Anyway, when I wrote about Psych on Monday, and about Emily’s TV Challenge, I wasn’t sure what kind of respond I’d get. And can I just say, I was kind of surprised by how many of you were already onto the giddy fun that is Psych.
And when I asked for nominations for my next new series, I wasn’t sure what to expect. I started to include a list of the shows I already watch, just to make it easier for you all. But then I realized there are way too many possibilities. So I figured I’d just take my chances.
Here are the nominees I have to exclude because I’ve already watched them, at least a couple of times:
House–Call this the biggest understatement ever, but I’m not a fan of House.
Fringe–I’m behind on this season, but I do watch Fringe. And I love it.
The IT Crowd–I’ve only seen the first few episodes, but it’s HILARIOUS!
Pushing Daisies–It still hurts my heart that Pushing Daisies was cancelled.
The Big Bang Theory–If you check out my Quote of the “Day” on a regular basis, you’ll know how much I love this show.
Dollhouse–Another series that was gone too soon. Although the last episode kind of sucked and I would have been mad if I’d watched the show for 5 or 6 years and ended up with that finale.
Alias–I heart JJ Abrams. I heart Alias. Except that last season. Weirdness.
The West Wing–Aaron Sorkin is brilliant. Except for that whole Social Network thing.
The Closer–I love Kyra Sedgwick and her alter ego Brenda Lee Johnson. I’ll miss them when the show ends this summer.
Parenthood–I’ve tried to get into this show. It would probably help if I start at the beginning.
The Tudors–Seasons 1 and 2 are fantastic. I need to get around to watching 3 and 4.
And here are the nominees:
Avatar: The Last Airbender
Drop Dead Diva
Six Feet Under
Dead Like Me
In Plain Sight
Now, one or two of these are already on my list of shows to get around to. But I’m not going to taint the voting by revealing which ones. So, please vote in the poll on the sidebar. You have, like, a week or so.
I can’t wait to see what you all pick. And I’m carefully selecting a good one for all of you, too!
