TV Habits

Peter and I are in the habit of watching series together... How bad is it? Pretty bad.
We're in the middle of season 3 of Star Trek: The Next Generation.
We've seen ALL of the Bones episodes together. Not to mention owning all of them!
We watched a couple of seasons of Black Adder.
And of course we watched Firefly and Serenity together. 
Really though I'm a huge fan of all kinds of media. Art, television, books, newsprint, magazines, movies, live shows, and internet stuff. I will consume ALL of it with enough time.
Thankfully I do have other responsibilities and social activities to take me away from the mind suck that is today's media.
I've learned to be more selective.
Although I love Criminal Minds, I can't watch it on a regular basis due to the psychological effect it has on me.
I really liked House for a while, but then it took a very negative/convoluted turn... so I stopped.
I LOVE So You Think You Can Dance (Peter doesn't. Imagine that.) but since I lost my watching buddy (Em, why oh why did you have to leave me??) I haven't been a consistent watcher. I'll catch up, but I'm also not as invested. Except in Melanie. I really like that girl.
I've been seeing other nerdy TV shows that I want to watch, but how do you choose? What shows do you invest your precious time in? What do you do while you're watching TV? Or do you just watch?


  1. Ooo...there are too many to choose from. Of course...if you were unemployed like me you don't really have to choose mahahah! Realistically though....I'd say to keep up with only the ones you absolutely love and if you decide later that you were missing out on a show there's always the DVDs!

  2. Trent and I watch way too many series to count! I find it relaxing to watch something without the obligation of having to watch a full 2 hour movie.
