My TV Addiction

I've been watching a lot of tv lately, and I've decided that I need to wheedle down my schedule a bit, to just a few select shows. I went pretty overboard this Fall with the new stuff, but that said, there really was a lot of new stuff to watch. I'm really loving Heroes the most. That's easily the best new show of the season. They're really building to something bigger, and that journey is pretty cool. I like the fact that they've already got three seasons mapped out too. Very cool stuff. If you're into the show, you also need to be reading the 6 page (or so) online comic books that are coming out in conjunction with each episode. I just really hope it doesn't turn into a Mutant X, and no matter how much I love it, that is still a possibility. My other favorite new shows are Jericho which despite what some people, like my friend Devon, think is still going strong. Also I'm watching Friday Night Lights, which is shaping up very well, Studio 60, which better pick up the pace if it wants to stay on the air, The Nine, and Six Degrees, which are both still on my potential drop list. I 'm also keeping up on is Survivor, The Amazing Race, oh and Grey's Anatomy, which while I admit is very girly and has some soap opera elements, is also written solidly, and has characters that I can't help but like.

Is that a lot? it sure seems like it. I really watch stuff mostly while I'm commuting though. Thank god for the video iPod. But man, that seems like too much... and with Daybreak, and Traveler starting sometime soon, I'm not sure I'm going to have time for anything else. I know that sometimes I look at people like Angie and I just shake my head that they spend so much time with tv, but wow, I just described 9 hours of tv a week as 'wheedled down'... I might just have a problem.

When I get home Erica and I watch tv sometimes, but I don't feel like it's too overboard. Recently we've been working our way through Lost season 2 and I have to say I am really loving it. Such a good show, with such a good cast. Maybe I need to watch more movies... Cause this tv thing seems to have me all tied up. Kinda scary.

That's all for this post.
