As much as I think winter is totally lame because a) it’s cold outside, b) baseball is over, and c) it’s cold outside (or did I say that already?), it’s also wonderful because it gives me a great excuse to park my ass on the couch, stuff my face with crap food, and become a complete televison zombie.
That’s right. I’m a total junkie when it comes to televison and I WILL NOT BE SHAMED. What else am I supposed to do when my kids are giving me a spare hour? Clean? HA! ;) I’m embracing my horrible addiction and will now present to you, What I’m Watching:
This is Us – I’m loving this show and I just find myself asking “Why? HOW?” for every episode! The series premier got me hooked and I can’t stop watching. I love all the different story lines and love all the characters.
Pitch – I’m not sure the story is believable for this show, but it’s still decent enough to kill an hour of time. I get the message of the show, but I’m skeptical of how long it will last on air. I will give it a thumbs up for having Mark-Paul Gosselaar. Zack Morris no-more, but he’s great in his role.
Dancing with the Stars – I only started watching this last season, but what can I say? It’s a competition show featuring B-list celebrities and athletes and it’s fun to watch. I dropped The Voice for DWTS and have no regrets. And I enjoy yelling at the TV when ‘Merica votes the wrong people off ;)
The Walking Dead – While I think that the storyline has been a bit repetative over the years, this season just feels … different. Plus there’s Jeffrey Dean Morgan now and who can say no to Denny?
The Big Bang Theory – It’s silly, it’s clever and it’s a great show to kill 30 minutes before bed! I love watching Sheldon & Amy’s relationship grow, and Howard and Bernadette are just hilarious.
Canada’s Worst Driver – I honestly have learned a LOT about driving just from watching this show! Whenever I’m in a sticky driving situation I just think to myself, “What would Andrew Younghusband do?” Aside from that, it’s also hard to believe that there are people who are THAT bad at driving amongst us. (Actually, fun fact: One of my mom’s coworkers was on the show a few seasons ago when she lived in Ontario.)
Lip Sync Battle – I love it when celebrities just let loose and make fun of themselves. And I love how LL Cool J gets SO into it! My favourite performances have got to be Anne Hathaway doing Wreckingball, Gine Rodriguez’s doing A Millie, and Dwayne Johnson doing Shake it Off.
Lethal Weapon – Kyle and I started watching it out of respect of the movie series, which we are huge fans of, but we’re not so sure about the TV show. I don’t know if it’s Daimon Waynes’ portrail of Roger Murtaugh or if Clayne Crawford’s Martin Riggs is a little too haywire, but we just can’t figure out our hesitation.
Grey’s Anatomy – This is the only Shondaland show I watch, and while I wouldn’t be surprised if it only has a season or two left in it, I still love it! And could Alex & Meredith just cross the friendship line for once and get together?? Please? Also, I’d really appreciate it if one of the characters just had a normal, healthy birth and delivery for once. Do me a solid, will yah Amelia? kthxbye
Of course, I cannot post this without mentioning how excited I am about GILMORE GIRLS at the end of this month!
So, what are you watching as the weather gets cold??
