I am going to tell you right off the gate, I don't watch a lot of TV. Between working full time, whatever sport my son is doing, running and zumba, I barely have time to do laundry. But Roger enjoys watching TV, and we spend that time together. We take turns picking shows, and sometimes we watch two shows at the same time... because it's hard to go to sleep right after seeing Dexter chopping heads off.
His pick for his year was Breaking Bad and Big Bang Theory, both which were awesome in their own way. We just finished Breaking Bad, and I am trying to make sense of all of this insane Walter White stuff! It was a good show, and I enjoyed it very much! So many questions!!
- What happened to Jesse after he escaped? He would be the last living person who had Walter's meth recipe... but I assume he was wanted for questioning about Mr. White, Hank and the whole thing. But what did he have to live for?
- Did Skyler recover from all the crazy things Walter put her through?
- Did she ever move away from NM?
Now it's my turn to pick and I'm down to a few favorites:
Buffy- I've seen the series twice. This show is completely awesome! This show deals with so many subjects, fears, religion, growing up, grieving, acceptance, and kicking some butt! Plus I love the Strong Female Lead!
Angel- This is a spinoff of Buffy, with darker and more serious, yet funnier writing. But it does get weird in season 4.
Sex and The City- I know there is no way Roger would watch this. A long time ago we got into a HEATED discussion about how realistic this show was. His argument was that the women of SATC lived an unrealistic life style and they were shallow and selfish. My argument was that it's a TV show, of course it's way unrealistic! That fight didn't end well. That day I dropped him off back at home and told him that if he wasn't willing to keep an open mind, I couldn't take him with us to Hershey Park to see the singing cows. True Story.
Gossip Girl- This show is DRAMATIC and ADDICTIVE! It sounds obnoxious, I know! rich kids who have such a hard life being rich! But the writing is quick and witty, it just drew me in and kept me watching until the end. I loved it!
Votes are leaning towards Buffy... and I can't wait to watch the series again!
Does anybody have a favorite show they want to share?
Any ideas on my BB questions?
Any other thoughts on SATC?
