So many shows, so little time.
There are so many shows on TV that I feel like everyone watches. Everyone except me, that is. I like TV and I do watch it. It just seems like the shows that appeal to me are not the ones that appeal to the masses and vice versa.
Here is a list of popular shows that I never watched. Most of which I have never even seen one episode of:
Grey’s Anatomy – I’m pretty sure I’d love this show but I never saw it in the first season. I thought it would be hard to “learn” the characters and plot lines jumping in later. Maybe I’ll watch it on DVD.
Lost – I haven’t had any interest in Matthew Fox since Party of Five. This show just doesn’t appeal to me AT ALL.
Sex and the City - Again, just not up my alley. I know, I know, how could it be possible? But seriously, I haven’t seen one single episode of this show and I just have no desire at all to watch it.
24 - This is another show that I’d probably like but I think I never started watching it because it conflicted with something else that I really loved. Probably either Prison Break or American Idol. Seems really cool, but probably too late to get into it now. Maybe another DVD show I’ll watch when I get some free time, ha!
Heroes - I’ve never been one for super heroes, super powers, XMen type movies or shows. Blah.
How I Met Your Mother - I’ve loved Neil Patrick Harris since waaaaaaaaaaay back in his Doogie Howser, MD days. This show seems hilarious but, again, it must have conflicted with something else that I watch(ed).
Survivor - Not much to say about this one. Just not interested.
Desperate Housewives - Seems like it’s sort of complicated to follow, just by hearing the commercials for it. I prefer mindless TV. I only have room in my brain for one complicated show at a time and I was obsessed with Prison Break.
Gossip Girl - I could be wrong but I thought this was a teeny bopper-ish type of show. So I never got into it. Don’t really care to anyway.
Glee – This show looks hilarious. I wish I had gotten into it. Too late?
I’m sure there are more that others love that I’ve never seen but these are the ones that I seem to get the most flack for not watching. Like I said, I was obsessed with Prison Break. I’m so sad that it had to end, even though I knew it would eventually. These days my TV watching is pretty much nil except for Ellen in the morning and occasionally Two and a Half Men on DVR (even though now with Charlie Sheen’s situation it’s bound to go into hiatus) and Red Sox baseball.
I never got to the theater to see Avatar or The Blind Side but they’re both sitting on my DVD player just waiting to be watched. I just need a few more hours in my day. Please?
What are some of your favorite TV shows or movies? How do you find the time to watch them all? We use DVR but even with that it’s hard to find time to sit down and watch them when there are so many other things that have to be done.
