Fun with TV shows

When I come home at night, there are times when a little escape is in order. I know there is always more school work, house work or just chores that should require my attention. But at those times that I am home and feeling the need to experience a different world, I turn on the television, and live a few minutes totally removed from my world. Now, if I just had a DVR or another digital recorder this might happen even more often. By the way, from the shows, you can tell that my selection of channels is very limited.

I love watching Bones
well, not always love, sometimes I want to puke.
I just want to be as smart as Bones is.
Maybe I can learn by watching her...
I blame my daughter for getting me
hooked on The Big Bang Theory.
As I watch the show,
I dream of a show about teachers;
would that show be funny or would we just talk about
assessments, common core, issues, etc?
Then comes NCIS--why do I like this how?
The good guys always win!
Hart of Dixie; how did I ever even find this show?
Oh yeah, not feeling well, and library had the first season on DVD; 
plus the added bonus of watching a marathon with my daughter.
And the relationships; people walking around town,
running into friends, making new friends, special events 
where the whole town participates.
Talk shows are boring!
I almost never watch them.
There is an exception:
Steven and Chris--a Canadian talk show duo.
One of my local TV stations airs reruns on Saturdays.
So I sit down, work on my blog, laugh at their antics, 
learn how to make a quick dinner, what is the in-color this year,
and return happily to my real world in less than 60 minutes.
Oh yeah, and to grading or lesson planning.
No wait a minute, the sun is shining!
Looks like dusting might be in order.
(Should have kept the drapes closed...)

  1. I don't know about any of those shows, but your reasons for watching are fun, especially those times with your daughter, special! There are those moments that help us relax & go outside ourselves, aren't there, and TV is the answer. Sorry you opened the drapes-happens to me, too!

  2. Fun post! I blame my husband for getting me hooked on the Big Bang Theory! And you are correct, sometimes we just need to escape into another world whatever that may be;-)

  3. What a twist to writing TV reviews. Bones is one of my favorites too. The mixture of crime, science, characters and humor is just right for me.

    1. It is fun to think that in this media time, we are watching the same shows even though we live oceans apart.

  4. I loved the commentary and will check a few that I haven't seen. We watch a show together and Dave doesn't like to talk as we go like I do...and then lately, I promptly fall asleep :) This was amusing and I enjoyed reading it today. XO

  5. Fun read, fun shows. I'd like to be as smart as Bones, too. Sheldon cracks me up. I love Gibbs (aka Mark Harmon). Everytime I saw a commercial for Hart of Dixie, I thought I should try to catch it (I've lived in Dixie, so it would be nostalgic)...videos from the library! now I know how to catch it! TV is a fun way to get away from it all for a little while.

    1. I keep waiting for Raj to get a girlfriend and then they could go out with Sheldon and Amy. Definitely enough story to write a few posts, right?

  6. Fun post - I don't know all of the shows you've mentioned, my husband is addicted to Pawn/Storage/Picker shows with men who look like he does roving the countryside to find treasure in the trash of others so I usually just hide in the dining room! I do have a few favorite shows so I may find a way to write about them during the great month of slicing...

  7. So nice to see the sun shining during the winter months! It does make you want to get up and move around.

    1. After the ice and snow last night, sun would really be welcome!

  8. We all need the escape time and the release of stress from the day don't we? It's certain that down time will cause you to take pause and notice something else that needs done...that's the life of a teacher I think!
