TV shows: recommendations and requests

I apologize for those of you that hate lists. Clearly, I love them so very much. (I did not realize this until I began to blog, and now it's like I don't know any other writing style.) Anyway, I was always a TV snob (thought people that watched tv were lazy and unintelligent) and then sadly, I began working, and now all of a sudden if my DVR stops working I become homicidal. (I'm convinced Ted Bundy just couldn't get his damn show to record.) My only problem is this--I'm OCD about tv. I must watch it in order from the 1st show, otherwise I am convinced, convinced, that I will be lost. Tv shows on DVDs were made for me. Here's a list of shows that I have been recommended and will document here so that I will watch them soon. Like over the summer in particular when House and 30 Rock are on re-runs.

1) Mad Men
2) The Wire
3) Wonderfalls
4) Heroes: Season 1
5) Weeds
6) Battlestar Gallactica
7) Pushing Daisies

Anyone have recommendations? I WANT SOME. Umm, please?! Oh, I don't do reality shows. Now, it's more of a matter of wanting to be the only person on earth not having seen a single episode of American idol.

  1. I'm with you, definitely...TV on DVD is the best thing since sliced bread (and fro yo, and margaritas!). I'm also with you on reality TV...blegh

    Here are some TV series you can watch on DVD (or on the lovely internet)...I hope some of them work for you:

    1. Coupling (BBC)- hilarious! NLBW (No Liquids Before Watching)
    2. Lost (if you haven't already been sucked into this one)
    3. Curb Your Enthusiasm
    4. Arrested Development
    5. Rome
    6. Bones
    ...I'll let you know if I think of any others :)
