13 Shows I Love To Watch (when I have time)


1. Prison Break – This is the one show I make time for. My husband can’t stand it because in his words, “It is impossible for me to suspend my disbelief that much!” Whatever. I think he’s just annoyed that Wentworth Miller is at the top of my list of guys to jump if I weren’t married. Speaking of Went, this is a perfect excuse to post another picture of him. Feel free to drool.



2. Lost – Again, not one of my hubby’s favorites. He thinks I have too much drama in my life. I love puzzles that keep my brain in analysis mode. It also helps that Naveen Andrews looks really good when sweaty.


3. Desperate Housewives – Everyone one of us has some characteristics of at least two of the housewives. My combo is Lynette and Susan. I’m the neurotic mom who constantly finds herself in awkward situations.


4. Heroes – Okay, I would watch Adrian Pasdar in anything. Aside from that, I just can’t wait to see where this show is going. What is up with Claire’s father? I’m still waiting to see Peter take off and fly. I’m rooting for Hiro to save the world from a nuclear explosion. And does Nikki’s ultra-violent alter ego have anything to do with Silar?


5. Grey’s Anatomy – Aside from McDreamy, who I have loved since I saw him in Can’t Buy Me Love when I was 14, there are so many reasons to watch this show. I would watch it every week for Sandra Oh and Chandra Wilson alone. It’s been so long since a show gave us so many new catch words. Vajayjay?


6. The Office – If something doesn’t happen soon between Jim and Pam, I will hurl my TV out the window. Aside from that, I think Steve Carell is about the funniest damn actor working today.


7. Days of Our Lives – I’ve watched this show for 23 years, so love it or hate it, I’m in it for the long haul. Of course these days, I often find myself rooting for the bad guys (I love EJ), but can you blame me?


8. Justice – I really want to watch this show. I saw it at the beginning of the season and I loved it. Unfortunately, they moved it to Mondays, so it is doomed to die a slow death opposite Heroes, but if anyone gets a chance to Tivo it or see it in reruns, it is worth a look.


9. Veronica Mars – My favorite all-time show is Buffy, the Vampire Slayer. The writing on Veronica Mars is almost as good. Almost.


10. House – I’m noticing that many of the shows I love have really hot guys in them. Coincidence? Hmmm . . . I love Hugh Laurie. Too bad, he puts on an American accent to play Dr. House, but I love him anyway. He is deliciously arrogant.


11. New Adventures of Old Christine – Julia-Louis Dreyfuss is freaking hilarious in just about anything. I love her in this, and I will forever love her from Seinfeld. I will never be able to go out onto a dance floor without briefly busting out with Elaine’s thumb-pointing dance moves with the little kicks.


12. Project Runway – I have a girl crush on Heidi Klum. I am not even going to post a picture of how good she looks. This is why pregnant women around the globe are weeping. She is beautiful, smart, and executive producer of the best reality show on television.


13. Conan – Conan O’Brien and I developed a close relationship after I gave birth to both of my children. I found out that they rerun Conan around 2 a.m. He continuously makes me laugh so hard that I just about bust something. But my favorite bit from his show? Triumph, of course. Please enjoy my all-time favorite Triumph sketch ever, as he does the weather for a news station in Hawaii.

When I was in the Philippines I couldn't get my Prison Break fix but I could watch Wentworth Miller for hours on the Hallmark channel. They were playing the Dino-topia miniseries (original) over and over for months!

scribbit said...

Wentworth--so that's his name.

My boys loved Dinotopia.

Hulai said...

I unfortunately never get to watch much tv. but I do understand the addiction to a soap. As long as I can remember my mother has watched The Young and the Restless! Its so dumb, but totally addictive. I am also a conan fan!!!

Caylynn said...

Nice list. :) I haven't seen any of those shows - we sadly can't watch any North American shows here in Germany. Due to the orientation of our building, we can't get satellite TV. :( From everything I've heard, I'd probably enjoy House - I enjoyed Hugh Laurie in Blackadder.

Happy T13. :)

MommyBa said...

Grey's Anatomy is awesome! Project Runway is something I'd like to see.

Happy Thursday!

Jaime said...

I love Project Runway! Tim Gunn cracks me up to no end.

Happy TT.

ali said...

yes, yes, and yes...
grey's anatomy baby!

Missy said...

I love Heroes and Gray's Anatomy. There was a time that I couldn't go without my Days of Our Lives fix but I haven't watched it in over a year now. I avoid it now 'cause it's so addictive.

Great list!

Morgen said...

I am shocked
SHOCKED I say
SHOCKED that Lazy Town didn't make the list!!!

I didn't know Buffy is your fave -- my ALL time favorite, too!!!
I'm currently re-watching Season 4 on DVD. Riley Finn makes me go Mmmmmmm....

Love Love Love that clip of the HI weathercast. Hadn't seen that one before. Love the anchorwoman's face because she's trying so hard not to do a spit take whenever Triumph rags on aquanethead dude.

Wonderful TT.
I've hi-jacked Purrchance To Dream today. Now, I MUST get NaNo-ing!!!

love ya, Mo

Neila, I got approval from my regional manager to hook you up with coffee for several months.. (though I am the one who has to deliver it).. I will give you a pound of your picking every week.. You know the deal though, I need to see a blog entry about it. Also, the people at the store don't know about this little deal (so keep it quiet).. And the free coffee is yours. Though, I don't know if you could drink a pound of beans worth every week?.. what am i saying, hell yes you can..

Barbara said...

My Mother's sister, who died 5 years ago, would never miss an episode of Days of Our Lives. I was hooked once on soaps, but I never turn them on anymore.

My TT is up.

Kukka-Maria said...

While I don't watch most of what you've listed (seems I'm completely missing the boat on all the good shows), I do love The Office.

Another great one (in my opinion) is How I Met Your Mother. Neil Patrick Harris is HI-LARIOUS in that show!

Great idea for a TT! Glad I stopped by!

This week, mine focuses on the story that has been keeping the world on the edge of their seats.

Sadie said...

Yay to all those shows! Well, most of them. I watch #s 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 8, and 12, and I used to watch 9.

Happy TT and thanks for another pic of Wentworth Miller. I heart Wentworth Miller.

Momish said...

You have great taste. In shows and men! I love House and Lost too!

Sparky said...

What no One Life to Live???

Penny said...

I really like Grey's Anatomy too. I like hospital shows though. I still love ER the best and I'm glad it now comes on right after Grey's. There's a lot of buzz about House but I haven't seen it yet. I don't really watch Desparate Housewives but I've stopped on it a few times because it was so outrageous or funny. Of course, there's DOOL because I've been watching it for a long time too!

Heather said...

It's so funny reading what other people like to watch on TV, because it's never what I like watching. Cool list idea, though. ;-)

Twyla said...

I've actually never watched any of those shows...sad I know. I'm so out of the loop when it comes to good shows...and I usually never have control of the remote anyways. Happy TT. :-)

Julie said...

Of course, YAY LOST! But aren't you excited about next episode of The Office???? I don't want to say anything in case you didn't see last night's epi yet...

Stacey said...

Just, FYI, I finally watched Justice for the first time as you keep telling me it is so good (And I really don't move much after 6:30 nowadays anyway)!. You are right, it is good!
