I love the summer run of TV shows.
First there is Big Brother - who wouldn't like that madness. I can't wait for tonight to find out who the sabateur is. (The "twist" this year is that one of the houseguests is there just to wreak havoc). I confess, I not only watch the show 3x/week, but I also check the update blogs and I subscribe to the live feed.
Aside from BB there are many great shows returning - The Closer, Royal Pains, Psych, Leverage, White Collar, Burn Notice, and the best ... Mad Men. I love that they are on those cable channels that repeat the episodes several times during the week, so I can catch everything on TiVo even with competing timeslots.
I still have a reality show addiction so I following Top Chef, The Next Food Network Star, Hells Kitchen, Deadliest Catch (very sad this year), Design Star, and a new one called Work of Art: the Next Great Artist.
There's also a bunch of new shows starting that I might be interested in. My method is that if they don't compete with something else I watch, then I TiVo a couple of episodes to see if I have an interested. The first one is Rizzoli and Isles which is based on books by Tess Gerritsen. I have read all the books so far. I watched the first episode and it followed pretty closely to the early books in the series I don't know if they are going to continue along the story lines of the books or spread to new stories but so far I liked the first episode. Another one I'm interested in checking out is Sh*t My Dad Says which is based on a twitter account I follow - I think it's going to be on CBS so hopefully it won't compete with something else I already watch.
So many shows ... so little time. My TiVo can record several hundred hours of programming so guess what, I'm always behind. I do keep up with the reality shows, but regular programs I'm several episodes behind - and I'm Ok with that. I also don't give the TV my undivided attention - I have it on as background entertainment when working on the computer or scrapping in fact it's on while I'm typing this out.
Tomorrow I head to Sarasota for a crop and I think I'll get to see my sister for a bit. As long as I have a connection, I'll be able to post from there.
