Primetime Blues

I used to be a huge fan of 'reality' television. When Survivor came out I didn't miss an episode. The Amazing Race, Big Brother - even the first Bachelor, were all on my Must Not Miss list. (Ok, so Big Brother still is.)

Ten years later I cannot believe how overrun my digital guide is with so-called reality television! Dance shows, talent searches, reno and decorating catastrophies, vying for love lies, even just total smut like Jersey Shore!! I mean, COME ON!!! It's all just blah, blah, blah - the bullet train to Dullsville. I'm so done with it!

This dreary winter I will break out of the blues. I will instead soak up the beautiful scenery and excitement found in Hawaii 5-0. I will laugh my ass off at How I Met Your Mother reruns. I will even let the occasional tear escape for victims in Criminal Minds. (Yes, I can be an overemotional loser)

I may be found peeking in on Survivorman, though, because you just never know... that info could come in handy.

I LOVE Hawaii 5-0. Great show. I've also found Chase to be pretty good. I can honestly say I never watched a single episode of the last survivor.

We LOVE Mother! I wish we could watch Hawaii 5-0 but it is on too late for us (We go to bed by 9:30 because we have to get up so early for work!).
