Can't Resist that Neon Glow

I try not to watch a lot of TV. I'm one of those people who if I sit down in front of the TV will suddenly snap out of a daze three hours later to realized I've been watching House Hunter International reruns for no apparent reason. Instead, I monitor my TV time by watching my shows online. This way I miss most of the commercials, set myself with an actual time limit, and can work on jewelry or other projects as the show plays. All that being said I'm still a TV lover and am so glad some good scripted shows have made it onto the air in the past few seasons. These are my current favorites:

1. Modern Family- So freaking funny. I laugh out loud every episode

2. Parks and Rec- Ron Swanson. The end.

3. Pan Am- Was resistant to it and the idea that it was a cheap shot at my beloved Mad Men, but I'm really enjoying it now.

4. Mad Men- Can it please come back?

5. 30 Rock- This needs to come back too. I need more Alec Baldwin in my life.

6. Community- Decided to check it out one night, and was left feeling uncertain but wanting to watch more. I still feel this way

7. Parenthood- Don't know why I like this show but I do.

8. Project Accessory- Really didn't think I would like this based on the cheesy previews, and I think Molly Sims is a bland host, but I love the challenges and am jealous of their amazing work room.

9. Project Runway- It's been losing it's appeal but I still like to watch the runway shows and be a judgmental bitch.

So there's my list of shows. I guess if it says anything about me it's that I enjoy creative projects, am nostalgic for a period I didn't live through, find happiness in sarcasm, and value family life, or I just watch a lot of TV. What shows do you like?

  1. I like The Good Wife!

  2. I've been meaning to watch that. I'm so bad at catching shows on their original air date. I'll have to check it out online.
