Being Sucked In....

So, as you may know by now, I love me some television. I always have and always will, its an addiction, and I don't plan to try to get rid of it. Its a hobby of mine, and that's how I like to classify it.

Anyway - in order to manage this addiction I take certain precautions. I generally don't accept new shows into my viewing habits. It gets difficult and my DVR only records so many shows at once. Plus, I prefer to watch shows on the DVR b/c it takes less than half the time and if you're planning on watching a couple of shows and get to bed by 10:30pm you better be efficient.
FYI- I do have somewhat of a life, but with the Mr. away I do have more time to kill. Also, I do some of the DVR watching on nights when I don't like many of the shows on TV.

Therefore, in order to add a new show to the weekly line up it must be certain criteria.

1. Another show must be going off the air - cancelled, season finale, a re-run that night, etc.

2. I must watch 1 episode and be immediately drawn in

3. The Mr. must be a fav of it as well. (ok #3 is so, so but generally we like the same shows, or at least I get him to like my shows)

Ok so what are the new shows I'm feeling...

1. Sons of Anarchy on FX. It dark, crude, and I love it. FX has some great programming. And I think motorcycles are totally hot. The Mr. sold his this spring, we're getting a Harley when he makes Captain.

2. True Blood - HBO - I'll admit I was a little wishy washy on this after 1 episode, but when Mad Men ended a couple of weeks ago I decided to give it a shot.

3. 17 Kids and Counting - TLC - OMG I just sit in pure amazement of these people. First physically giving birth to that many children, then home schooling them all, and just paying the bills. Its mind blowing to me. Granted, my religious and lifestyle beliefs are extremely different then theirs but more power to them.

But what am I even more excited about..... Top Chef premieres this week. OMG I freaking love Top Chef and so does the Mr.
