…and on Sunday morning, too.

Tell you what: I have to quit sleeping in, or the 19th is going to hit pretty hard. But I must admit, I have enjoyed these last two lazy mornings.

Time to stop procrastinating…after tonight. Tonight! Breaking Bad premiere.

I really don’t watch that much television. There are nights when it never gets turned on up here. I just have several shows that I follow — most airing on Sunday nights, for some reason, so the DVR is pretty busy — and I rarely miss. Fortunately, they’re also available in my cable provider’s on-demand listings, so time isn’t as big an issue as it used to be.

Remember the days when, if you missed a show, you just, well, missed it?  8-O

What are your favorite shows? I mean, ones that you watch now, as opposed to the canceled ones that we all wish would come back? (I could make a list of those a mile a long.) For now, though, I’m addicted to:

  1. Breaking Bad
  2. Mad Men
  3. Downton Abbey
  4. Once Upon a Time
  5. The Newsroom (HBO)
  6. True Blood (HBO)
  7. Ray Donovan (Showtime)
  8. Homeland (Showtime)
  9. Game of Thrones (HBO)
  10. Boardwalk Empire (HBO)
  11. House of Cards (Netflix)

Wow…I guess that’s a lot of TV! It doesn’t seem like I’m in front of the box that much. And notice: no sitcoms. Never liked them, never will. Does that make me a humorless grouch? Naaah. That means I’m surrounded by enough situation comedy with my own family and friends, I don’t need any on TV — which bodes well in the reverse for the “drama” aspect, yes? :-)

Happy Sumday, fiends — I hope you’re enjoying it.

Even though I love my big television, I don’t sit in front of it that often. I do have a few favorite shows, though. 1. Downton Abbey 2. NCIS 3. GMA 4. Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman – (a time I SHOULD have been born in) 5. Murder, She Wrote – (yes, the old show with Angela Lansbury!) Besides the news, that’s about all I watch. I do enjoy them, though. Enjoy your Sunderday, sweetie! ReplyRat Fink Reply:August 12th, 2013 at 7:14 amWatchin’ it old school, Mave! That’s you for sure. Glad those last two shows are still in syndication! But… Read more »
