Television: a List

~Warning: Pointless Post~

Anyone who knows me knows that I watch a lot of TV. I can’t help it, I’m couch potato girl. Rest assured, I have a life (sort of) and I do read books. The problem is that with college and then my career requiring so much mental stimulation, I need to give my brain a break every once in a while. All legitimate excuses aside, I may give it a bit too much of a break.

So anyway, here are my favorite TV shows of all time – evidenced by the fact that I’ve seen every episode (or very nearly every episode). Also listed are those shows I didn’t particularly like later on, but I was determined to stick with them, just to see if they would get better!

(Emboldened titles indicate true love, my very very favorites)

Battlestar Galactica
Dead Like Me
Desperate Housewives
Family Guy
Gilmore Girls
Gossip Girl
Grey’s Anatomy
Kyle XY
Law & Order: SVU
My So-Called Life
Private Practice
Project Runway
Sex and the City
Six Feet Under
Star Trek: Deep Space Nine
Star Trek: The Next Generation
Star Trek: Voyager
Stargate: Atlantis
The Closer
The Dick Van Dyke Show
The Mary Tyler Moore Show
The O.C.
The Office
The X-Files
Ugly Betty

One good thing can be said about my TV Watching habits: I don’t channel-surf often. I watch shows at specific times, streaming, or on DVD. I consider turning the TV on and flipping through the channels a true waste of my time.

All this being said, I’m in a bit of a TV lull at the moment. I’m just catching up on some Kyle XY (I haven’t watched since the mid-season 2 break) and watching Project Runway and Eureka (premiering tonight) at present. Based on the list above, anyone have any recommendations? I was thinking about Netflix-ing Californication or Veronica Mars or finally watching the rest of Babylon 5 (that would make Mike happy).

Unfriendly posts making fun of or mocking me for being a total geek and/or loser are not welcome… that’s not nice people!


  1. If you like Project Runway, check out Shear Genius. High drama, hilarious, and actually really well done. Quite addictive!

    p.s. My So-Called Life = greatest. show. ever. (except for maybe Parker Lewis Can't Lose.)

  2. hopefully you subscribed to follow-up comments because it has been a while! I watched some episodes of shear genius on a bravo mini marathon thingy. Love it! Lots of PR style addiction.


Comment nicely and with tolerance or be deleted!
