I read a lot of Facebook updates and talk to plenty of people who have their whole weekly schedule planned around their TV viewing goals. I don't ever remember watching many shows at once. I think if I ever did, it stopped when I gave up TV one year for Lent while I was in high school (and no, I was never Catholic). After giving TV up for that long, I just never was really into it after that.
Don't get me wrong - there have been a few shows that I haven't missed. My little guilty pleasures, but usually only one (okay, maybe two) at a time. Right now it's 24. Don't even try to contact me on Monday nights between 9 and 10 PM. I mean it. I almost considered rescheduling our honeymoon because I was missing the season finale on a cruise ship. It's not just a TV show for me - Jack Bauer is counting on my help!
I had a similar passion years ago for Dark Angel with Jessica Alba. Anyone remember that one? If you're nearby and don't remember - don't worry - I have both seasons on DVD. It was about life after the giant electromagnetic pulse that wiped out most of our data-centered lives as we know them. And the main character was a genetically engineered (and very attractive) chick who had been on human growth hormone or whatever to make her 'super human.' The second season had some other un-humans who had been grown in a lab as well. I loved it!
The other shows I loved that come to mind were even...well, worse. Rock of Love and Daisy of Love. Yeah, I could even admit at the time that they were never quality entertainment, but they sure were fun to watch for a while. My problem now is that since they were 'reality' television, there's no point in watching re-runs, since the eliminations are already finished....
What shows have you loved and now miss? Or what's your favorite now, and why should I try and watch it?
