These are some of the best shows on TV. I’m serious. You MUST watch them.
- True Blood on HBO : This show is awesome. And I’m not just saying it because I’ve read all NINE of the books that this show is based on and I happen to be obsessed with vampire books lately. Oh, all right, it might have a little something to do with the books that Charlaine Harris wrote, but only because they’re so freakin good. Think Twilight, but for grown-ups… like alcohol drinking, relationship consumating, R-rated grown ups.
- So You Think You Can Dance : This show is just plain fun. The dancing is so inspiring and even though the judges can sometimes be a little grating on the nerves (think: screams) they’re grating in an endearing and supportive kind of way. And I love hosts who genuinely seem to care about the contestants – and Cat Deely is definitely one of those hosts. Not to mention, she has great hair and super-long legs. I love this show and it’s something the whole family can watch. Lucky you there’s a new season starting in a few short weeks.
- Mad Men on AMC : This show is so darn cool… in a Frank-Sinatra-Rat-Back-Behind-the-Scenes kind of way. The shows are beautiful and retro and dramatic and quiet and completely addicting. The acting is amazing and the fashion is fantastic. Plus it makes me appreciate NOT living in the 1960’s when women wore skirts at completely inappropriate moments (cooking? doing dishes?) and were looked at as servants, baby makers and cocktail servers. <<shiver>>
Now really… what else could you possibly be spending your time doing? Reading to your children? Feeding the homeless? Coloring the gray out of your hair? (that reminds me of something *I* should be doing…)
Get thee to the TV.
