I have Sudafed-brain today, so I’m just going to babble about television. I love TV. Sometimes I remind myself I could get a lot more writing done if I didn’t watch television at night, but then I laugh at myself. No TV? Seriously? So what am I watching?
Amazing Race: This is still our favorite show, hands down. I don’t strongly dislike anybody yet this season, but my early favorites are the cowboys, Jet and Cord. If I had to name a team I’d like to see go home next, I guess it would be Miss Maps Such As and her boyfriend.
Cold Case: Getting a little ho-hum for me, but I’m so very glad they’ve ended that ridiculously stupid storyline with Lily stalking the military school guy. That was dumb.
House: Awesome, as always. I don’t get Cutty and the PI, though. Zero chemistry there.
24: I’m not enjoying this season at all. It’s ridiculous and I don’t want Jack to be involved with Rene and that whole thing with the Battlestar Galactica blonde and her boyfriend and the past boyfriend? Hate that. You know it’s very, very bad when my favorite character is Chloe.
Castle: It just keeps getting better and better. I love everything about it and the chemistry between the four of them at work is absolutely perfect. I thought, in the beginning, I’d be annoyed by his goody-two-shoes daughter, but I like her, too.
Human Target: My love for this show knows no bounds. It’s funny and action-filled but still has some depth to the characters. Not a lot of depth, but enough to make me want to know more about them. We DVR it to watch with the kids, because they love it, too, and we’re so glad they moved it from 9pm to 8pm. That means we’re not watching Idol this season, but we’re free to watch Human Target. At 9, the DVR schedule was already full because we were watching Criminal Minds and taping Modern Family and Cougartown.
NCIS and NCIS: LA: Love them so much. At first I didn’t care for LA, but the chemistry and easy banter between Sam and G has sucked me in and won me over. I’m glad on NCIS, they’ve backed off the Tony & Ziva thing. Was worried about shark jumping after their little trip overseas.
The Mentalist: Still enjoying it, though it’s not as charmingly original as it was. But as long as he keeps smiling that impish smile, I’ll be there watching it.
Lost: With the exception of the most recent episode starring Boring Ben, I’ve enjoyed this season. It’s sucked me back in and now I want answers.
Looking forward to V returning. Couldn’t care less about Flash Forward returning.
Survivor: Never miss it. GO BOSTON ROB!!! I’m totally a Villains girl.
CSI: Eh. Starting to not really care. We never started watching the New York series and we finally managed to kick the Miami habit thanks to Castle, but even the original is starting to get a little meh.
NUMB3RS: Still love this show. But something they said during last week’s previews, and the fact Charlie and Amita are going to England, gave me the impression they’re bringing it to an end. Anybody heard anything about that?
Miscellaneous sitcoms: Still absolutely in love with The Big Bang Theory, Two and A Half Men, Modern Family, Cougartown (which we almost didn’t watch because of it’s dumbass name, but we love now). Starting to feel a little meh about How I Met Your Mother. So much of it borders on ridiculous now.
Favorite new show: Parenthood. My husband and I both think it’s incredible and I really hope it sticks around.
I know I’m missing some, but that’s okay. This is long enough. Time to stare at the clock, counting the minutes until I can self-medicate again!
