Thursday Thirteen #12



Thirteen TV shows I thought I'd never get into but now really like.

This is a weird topic for me since I don't watch much television anymore. Usually just a little in the evenings and on the weekends when hubby and I rent DVDs - mostly shows.

1. Lost. I used to wonder why people were fanatical about this show until we rented season 1 on DVD last year. I get it now!

2. Medium. (My mom is probably freaking out right about now.) Yeah, yeah, yeah, so she talks to dead people... but I love the family dynamics in the show and the comic relief. The middle daughter cracks me up! Did you know it's based on a real person? Yipes.

3. The Dead Zone. Oooh, creepy. I've always wondered if the theory is true about not using all of our brain power and what we could accomplish if we could tap into it. However, I'm not sure I'm willing to be in a coma for several years to test that out.

4. Monk! It's so quirky you have to love it. Plus, I'm totally him - only not quite as normal.

5. Gilmore Girls. It sounded so cheesy until I started watching it sometime after I got married. Then I got my hubby hooked. It's sort of gone downhill lately though.

6. House. I'm NOT normally a fan of doctor/hospital shows... but House I love! He's the man you love to hate and hate to love all at once. The writing on that show is so good!

7. Law & Order SVU. Such a dark subject matter, but it's a great show with great actors.

8. Everwood. I was sad to see it end, and they ended it at such a bad time.

9. Smallville. Actually, this is one of my husband's favorite shows, but I like it alright even though I'm not normally into the whole super hero thing.

10. Alias. I didn't think I was into the whole spy thing either, but this was one excellent show. I was sad to see it go as well.

11. The 4400. It's really cheesy, but for some reason I like it even though I thought it was about aliens for the longest time. lol

12. Friends. I never really watched it during its peak, but afterwards we got into it and enjoyed it. It's corny, but has some really funny moments.

13. All of those birth shows! I get mad and roll my eyes during a lot of them, but if one is on, I'll stop what I'm doing and watch it anyway. Push 'em out, push 'em out, waaaaay out!

Ok, so now that I have blogged about television shows, I feel the need to do something really intelligent. Like solve world hunger or at least the national budget deficit and health care crisis. Oooh wait... I think a birth show is on...

I used to be a tv addict, but working at night has cut me down to the basics, several of which are on your list. What would life be like without Lost or Gilmore Girls?

Gattina said...

I don't like series in general, the only one I like is "Monk"

Tink said...

I like Medium, House, the 4400, Friends and a lot more that's not on your list! :-)
My Tt is about posts without comments.

I don't watch TV much. I do get into the occasional Friends reruns and yes, they do bring out a laugh or two or three. I like Monk when I remember it's on.

Happy TT Day. Mine is up. 13 reasons spring is in the air.

I used to watch those birth shows when I was expecting. I'd yell at the woman 'It's the 90's!! Get the epidural!!' Then I'd ALWAYS cry when the babe was born.

Tilly Greene said...

I confess, I'm addicted to House and Law & Order [all of them]! Great list, many I haven't seen and sound interesting!

Bella said...

House is my favorite right now. It's about the only show I have time to sit and watch. I LOVE Monk. My 11 yr old son is just like him and we even call him Monk now, in a loving way of course, not to be mean. Great list.

Thanks for stopping by my TT!

Samantha Lucas said...

Wow, good shows. :) I didn't know the 44 one but the rest I did and season one on Lost was the best, but I'm still sort of addicted to that one as you can see from my TT this week. lol

Tempest Knight said...

Great list! I admit I don't watch TV at all. Too busy to do so. But "Blood Ties" got me hooked.

Great list. I like Lost and House. I used to like Law and Order too, but I never get to watch it anymore.
Thanks for visiting my TT.

Friends, Law & Order - great shows. I just recently just started watching Smallville, and its better than I thought it would be. I just haven't been able to get into Lost. Guess I'll have to start from the beginning on DVD since so many people say its so good.

One that is missing (and in my opinion the best show ever on TV) is 24. My favorite by far. :)

Heidi said...

I used to be a Law and Order junkie. I just don't have time to commit to watching TV shows regularly now, so I usually just watch the Food Network or TLC. :)

The Ramblin' Rat said...

I love the Gilmore Girls. I started watching it when it first came out. You are right though, it has gone down hill this season. That's what happens when a new writer comes in.

Jessica Morris said...

Do you get them all from Netflix or do you keep up with the current season?

Have you ever seen King of Queens?? It is THE funniest show ever... I have seen random episodes in the past, but now we're going through season 1 ... season 2 is next in my que!!

The Cosmic Kid said...

I also thought I would NEVER like House, but now I'm completely addicted! I like getting into a show during season 3, so that every episode is a new episode!

Denise Patrick said...

The only one I've ever seen is Gilmore Girls and that was a few years ago when my daughter was still home and addicted.

Kimo & Sabi said...

We likes that "House" show too! We is TV addicts!

Catherine (almost_grinch) said...

I have seen Gilmore Girls, Everwood, and Friends.

I have been watching Survivor and never though I would be in to it.

Christine said...

You're so funny! I love House too, though we hardly watch TV at all. And was that a reference to Bill Cosby I saw in there? "Push 'em out..."

:)

We only use about 10% of our brains for independent thought, but much of the rest of our brainpower is needed to regulate our body's functions: heartbeat, breathing, involuntary movement (blinking, for example), basic motor coordination...think of your hard drive: sure, they're huge; but a lot of that power goes to just running your operating system.

That was Johnny's problem: he just overclocked. Now his disk has been defragged, so he's got some extra RAM.

(And the really lame computer analogies will now stop. I promise.)
