Or maybe you are. I can't read your Nielsen boxes. (Does anyone actually KNOW anyone who has one?).
In this world of terrible reality TV (can we even call it reality TV anymore?) great scripted shows are few and far between. And the good ones sometimes don't make it, they don't even get a fair shot. See: My So Called Life, Freaks and Geeks, Sports Night, etc.
First show you don't have on season pass but you should: Friday Night Lights.
1. GREAT writing
2. "Clear Eyes, Full Heart"
3. Tim Riggins
4. It's about FOOTBALL!!!!!! But not really. But kind of...
Ok, that was 4 instead of 3.
Onto Show #2. Get to know The Sons of Anarchy.
It's pretty much The Sopranos but with bikers. But watered down a wee bit because it's on cable TV. And Charlie Hunnam is a dreamboat- total skeeze on the show sometimes, but such a lovable dirtbag. And Katey Sagal? She deserved that Golden Globe she won in January, she actually deserved it last year. Girl is PHENOMENAL in this show.
And last but not least, you NEED to get on board with The Good Wife immediately if not sooner.
Mr. Big, Julianna Margulies, Matt Czuchry and ALAN effing CUMMING. Brilliant cast. Great guest stars (Michael J Fox!). Leaves you wanting more each week.
All I know is if you're not watching the shows in this blog post, you really should start. Netflix the ones on DVD and get ready for the next seasons. Period. You heard it here. You won't be sorry.
