What I'm Watching
I have to admit that this is a fluff post. I have a big post I'm mulling over but have gathering to do before I can write it. So today, because not much else of worth can get out around that Big One I'm working on, you'll have to bear with me on the fluff. But fluff is good, too, yes? We all need distractions and silly stuff to keep us going, I think. So here's what I'm watching these days... I'm watching House. Christy has all the seasons on DVD. I've caught an episode here and there on TV and enjoyed it but never gotten into it enough to watch regularly. So I started with Season 1 and am currently halfway through Season 2. I'm enjoying it immensely! But I have noticed that I'm a little more paranoid about washing my hands and am pretty certain I have an infection or lupus or a parasite every time I feel a twinge or tingle somewhere. I'm watching Freaks and Geeks. Emily loaned me the DVD's for the entire series. I loved Freaks and Geeks when it was on and was bummed that it didn't last longer than it did. I always thought Jeff would love it because I thought he'd really relate to it. But he doesn't. So I'm enjoying it on my instead. I think the reason I like it so much is because of how much I relate to Lindsay. She's a good kid but hangs out with a crowd who does dumb stuff (sex and drugs and drinking) but they are good kids in their own way, too. I was a good kid and had friends who did dumb stuff but I didn't do the dumb stuff. I've also got Season 4 of Dexter in the queue. Jeff got it for me and I'm very excited to watch it. It's the John Lithgow season and I hear it's amazing. Then I'll just have to wait for Season 5 to be available. January 16 is the premiere of Season 5 of Big Love on HBO. I need to watch Season 4 before then! Jeff is very excited for Winter Wipeout to start on ABC tonight- we always laugh our way through that show! V has started up- we have it on the DVR and will watch it soon enough. No Ordinary Family is one we started to watch and then stopped because of scheduling. We enjoyed it though so we do want to watch. The Middle and Modern Family started back last night and we enjoyed them! Glee starts next week. Desperate Housewives started this past Sunday. There is a new show starting Feb 9- Mr. Sunshine- that I want to check out. Chuck and How I Met Your Mother and Big Bang Theory and Community and The Office and 30 Rock are still on the list, of course. I've enjoyed Biggest Loser and Live To Dance this week but didn't actually watch either show carefully or completely. I'm probably more invested in Biggest Loser than the dance show. What are you watching on DVD right now? What's taking up space on your DVR? Anything that's a "must watch" as it airs?
