The Television Dilemma

You know that the TiVo pickings are getting slim when you are excited about having your soap opera recorded every day so that you at least have SOMETHING to watch.

Most of the weekly shows that I watch are either done for the season because they ran out of episodes, or they are spacing them out and putting a filler show in every other week or so.

Some of the shows did a pretty decent mid-season finale considering that they don’t have anything else to show us, such as Desperate Housewives.

Now I am having a dilemma. What shows should I start recording now that my usual picks are done 6 months early? I can only watch so many Little People, Big World episodes and Big Brother 9 doesn’t start until February (I do have to say that I am really excited about it coming 6 months early).

I am sure that the new Survivor series will start relatively soon along with American Idol, but to be honest with you, I can’t handle watching ONLY reality tv. I need some dialogue that is scripted!! I need talented actors that can convey more than annoyance, boredom and cockiness.

I am also totally bummed that the second season of Dexter is over. I found it this season and am now totally addicted. I am planning on going to get the first season on DVD so that I can sit and learn some more of the back story. Michael C. Hall ROCKS!!!

What are you planning to TiVo or to watch in lieu of your favorite shows?

Don't you love DVRs? I'm also excited about Big Brother coming on sooner. Sorry I can't help you out with new shows - because there only seems to be crappy stuff on.

I love movies and I'll probably play more video games. I know, I'm 12 years old.

I'm giving Netflix a workout this winter - Alan and I have been watching at least 2 or 3 movies together each week. I'm also recording a lot of old movies on TCM - this week I'm going to watch The Awful Truth starring Cary Grant and Irene Dunn for the millionth time.

Simple answer to your question:
Nothing. While I believe the writer's have a right to strike and are correct in their demands, I'm pissed that the strike is going on and on...
I will go to the movies (while there's any) and go through my Netflix queue
