When I was growing up we never really watched TV. Not really. There would be maybe one show a season that we would watch and then everything else was hit or miss. For example, we NEVER missed an episode of Star Trek: Voyager.
So I'm not sure when I became such an avid TV viewer. I think I blame Lost. That was the first show I think I could sincerely attach the word "obsession" to. On TV, online, on DVD I'll have multiple shows going at once and multiple more that I wish I could get to!
Last season I couldn't miss:
1. Vampire Diaries - the second season was amazing. Plus the eye candy of Damon and Alaric :)
2. Castle - love this show to pieces. Hello Nathan Fillion (This also reminds me of the fact that I NEVER crushed on actors until recently... hm)
3. Raising Hope - Though it tapered off in hilarity for me this season I would watch it for the father alone. Oh my werd, but everything he says and does makes my mom, sister, and me laugh our heads off.
4. Glee - I watch it for the music. Really. The story line has completely lost my interest. But I do love when they have a good Sue episode.
And I liked when I could catch NCIS: Los Angeles. I love the cast they've gathered there. NCIS has kind of lost me because everything is pretty much the same that it was 2 seasons ago.
And on DVD:
Dr. Who - The reboot. Just caught up with as much is available on DVD and I want to cry that we don't get BBC America. I think I'm a genuine Whovian now. (Also, David Tennant :D)
Buffy/Angel - Naomi and I were working our way through for the first time. We still have like 7 Angel episodes left.
Babylon 5 - Revisiting an old classic with my parents.
X-Files - Have to watch this only with my Dad as it freaks my Mom out and Naomi doesn't really care.
Firefly - Just finished my nth rewatch. Why oh why was that show canceled?!
Big Bang Theory - started from the beginning. Naomi and I now quote it regularly to each other. I haven't laughed so hard at a sitcom in a very long time. Every episode kills me. My favorite bits are always the exchanges between Sheldon and Penny.
Torchwood - Netflix streaming is kind of my best friend. A lot of content that I didn't appreciate, but I got sucked in anyway. Not something I would rewatch, but I'm glad I watched it.
Battlestar Gallactica - the new one. I tried this because a lot of people I know loved it, but I just cannot get into it. I don't know as I'll really watch more.
And right now I am obsessed with So You Think You Can Dance! I love this show!
I also, inexplicably, love to catch an episode of Wipeout. I don't pay attention to when it's on or anything, but if it happens to be on I get excited and watch it. I can't explain my fascination with it.
So what do YOU like to watch? Have any good recommendations? I realize this list makes it sound like all I do is watch TV, but it's not as bad as it looks, so you don't need to plan an intervention :D
Also, this is too me not to post.
