As I Cee It

i still loves me some tv (ii).

Posted on: February 2, 2013

I split this post into two because it was really long. The first half concentrated on the shows that are actually airing right now (as far as I know) and the ones that I’ve quit watching. Here, we’ve got the shows that I’m catching up on.

Hart of Dixie (CW) – I’m kind of embarrassed about this one. Netflix told me I would 3.0 like it and I didn’t have anything to watch one day so I queued it up on a Friday night (in December, maybe?). Four episodes later, I couldn’t tell you why I was still watching. Nor could I explain why Ioke up the next morning and watched 5 more. I finished the first season, plus the second season premiere in less than one week. I’m not watching it now as it airs, but when season two hits Netflix (I’m thinking late fall), I’ll probably jump back in.

The West Wing (NBC, 1999-2006) – Why didn’t anyone tell me how awesome this show is? I’m in the early episodes of season three and I’m enthralled. Enthralled, I say. Man. Aaron Sorkin is a freakin’ genius and my newly discovered love for this show has led me to…

PREMIUM (I watch these after the seasons are over):
The Newsroom (HBO) – I’m going to repeat myself here: Aaron Sorkin is a freakin’ genius! I love this show. I love Jeff Daniels on this show. I love how cute Jim is, how odd Maggie is. I love that it takes place in “the past.” And Aaron Sorkin is brilliant.

Boardwalk Empire (HBO) – S2’s finale knocked me off my feert. As soon as one of the shows from the first post ends, or days somehow got extended to 25 hours, I’m going to start on S3. Did you watch it? Was it awesome? Don’t spill any beans, just tell me if it’s awesome.

Shameless (Showtime) – This show is sad and hilarious. How can it be both, you ask? The lives the characters are living are rough. Some of the things they go through are just too much for any one family. But there are constant laughs and William H. Macy is fantastic as Frank.

COMING UP: Ok, I’m adding these two because they’re supposed to come back soon, before my summer schedule begins.
Psych (USA) – Psych has been gone FOREVER. It’s the only show that routinely goes missing for almost an entire year at a time. Whatsupwitdatyo? But I still love it. Gus and Shawn are too funny for me to be mad at them for long. Returns at the end of this month. Yay!
Braxton Family Values (WE) – Currently, this is the only reality show I watch (as long as you don’t count reality competition like SYTYCD and DWTS). I just can’t get enough of those Braxton girls! You already know that I love Tamar. The whole group of them together is so much fun to watch. Returns in March. Hooray!

….I watch too much TV, don’t I?

Do you watch any of this group of shows? Anything I should be adding to my list? Even though it’s obvious I should be letting some go.

Hardly in the Ville, but always reppin. #vacation #beach #gatornation #gogators #Summer18
The last member of the trio that keeps me sane is @toni_with_a_t. As much as I hated the grad school that shall not be named, I can always look back on our friendship as the highlight of that time. Thanks for always being down for whatever ridiculous idea either of us can come up with and for being an incredibly encouraging friend. I am inspired and motivated by your faith, I can only hope to emulate your ability to accept feedback, and I am endlessly amused by the semi-secret hoodrat ratchet chick that lives inside of you. #NationalBestFriendDay
Next! This is my Eebs. She moved all the way to Baltimore so we could hang out. Fine, ok, that was a lie. But! She's still a great friend. @eebs101, I am in awe of your dedication to serving others, I am impressed by your 17 job grind, and I admire your optimism. Thank you for keeping me from going off on people and for helping to expand my thoughts and for accepting the times when I just want to be stubborn and sit in my feelings before I even consider really addressing them. And thanks for being there when I'm ready to do so. To next year's island vacation! (Which will happen cause we need it.) #nationalbestfriendday
It's #NationalBestFriendDay so let me do my shoutouts to the trio. First up is @Jennifre, whose years of service I won't mention cause that'll age us both. Thank you, thank you, thank you for being a fantastic friend over the years. We've both grown as people and in a way that keeps us bonded rather than pulling us apart. I value your honesty, I applaud your creativity, and I appreciate all of our conversations. May the Broadway shows keep a'comin, may we return to Whine & Wines, and may we always remember that we are here to support each other. This one is for you - FOR YOOOOUU! (That's my Principal Frye sketch voice, btw.)
