I’m not sure if I’ve ever shared with you my thoughts on television. I know I’ve mentioned that I’m a Downton Abbey fan, but other than that I don’t think I’ve ever talked tv on the blog.
That would be because I almost never watch it. Well, that was the case until I discovered Downton Abbey. Prior to that highly addicting show, the extent of my tv watching was the occasional Food Network show, some political stuff and the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. Seriously. That’s about it.
And that’s the way I’ve always been. I never watched Friends. Nor have I watched Seinfeld. And I missed all of Sex and the City which I kind of wish I hadn’t cause supposedly it was quite educational.
I have watched Charlie and Lola, Bear in the Big Blue House, Spongebob (God help me), Barney and more episodes of Thomas the Tank Engine than I care to remember, but those don’t count. It wasn’t by choice.
But as of late, that’s all changing. I’m actually starting to really enjoy tv.
It all started with Downton Abbey which I totally blame on peer pressure because everyone I know was going on and on about how awesome it was. Matter of fact, they wouldn’t shut up about it. It was all over Facebook, Twitter and even on Pinterest. Did you know there are Pinterest boards dedicated to Downton Abbey? Tis true.
So it’s like I didn’t even have a choice. Everyone was doing it. It was time to drink the Kool-Aid and it was the sweetest drink ever.
And then my treadmill arrived and at that point I was totally caught up on Downton Abbey. Time to find something new to help me walk away the miles without losing my mind.
Enter the HBO series Girls. Another series that I devoured. It took me only three days to watch the first two seasons and I’m already up to date with the third. I might have a slightly addictive kind of personality. Maybe.
Totally caught up on two shows and still committed to doing my hamster wheel dance on the treadmill, I started another series tonight. Sherlock, a BBC show,which just might be my biggest addiction yet. Have you seen it? So fast paced and brilliantly written. I foresee polishing this off within the next few days.
Which leads me to my question. What the heck am I going to watch after this? What have I missed that is a not to be missed show?
