I’m sure this is an auto-topic that WordPress sent out long ago that I never quite got around to writing about, but I’ll take a stab at it today. They suggested 5, but I’ve ended up with 7.
The Big Bang Theory–I love this show so much that I have it set to record on three–count ’em–3 different channels. I love the vocab challenge in each episode, and I equally love the daffiness of Penny. Leonard, Howard, Raj, and Bernadette round out the nerdfest in a most comedic manner. If you are one of the four people on the planet not tuned into this show yet, I suggest you get ongeekboard immediately.
- The Middle–Welcome to dork central complete with boring mom and dad, wannabe macho boy, hopelessly dorky teen girl, and booknerd little boy. It’s dysfunction pallooza that always makes me laugh.
- American Idol–Steven Tyler saved the day for American Idol. He’s funny and frank all at the same time. And when a killer contestant comes on, he closes his eyes, tilts his head, and we all know we are listening to great talent. Randy and JLo even it all out, and this show proves that there is still great talent to be mined from obscure America.
- 1,000 Ways To Die–Actually, this is a show I record and really mean to watch, but it’s gotten too bloody for me. I love the show because it can show you how not to die, but I don’t want to have bad dreams after watching it.
- The Biggest Loser–They lost the girl, Anna, which is great. I keep watching this show in the hopes that it will rub off on me one day and magically melt off my excess pounds. To date, this has not happened.
Rocket City Rednecks–I love this one in part because it is set in my neck of the woods, but also because they truly are local geeks showing how to build stuff. I just pray they don’t kill themselves in the process. I hope they are picked up for another season.
- Parenthood–Gotta love anything with Craig Nelson in it. I also really like Peter Krause. He was one of the reasons I loved Dirty Sexy Money (as well as Donald Sutherland being on it), but I digress. This show embodies all the angst of ThirtySomething from the late 1980s.
I won’t even go into the depths we have sunk with Bayou Billionaires and My Redneck Vacation. In addition, WWE remains DH’s domain.
So there you have it–my top 7 must see TV shows.
