TV Junkie

I love TV.  I've mentioned many times that I watch way too much TV.  It's a way for me to relax, though, so I justify it for that reason.  I limit the amount my daughter watches, since the last thing I want is for her to become a couch potato.  It isn't too much of a problem, though, since she has a couple of hours of homework every night, and she has a much greater social life than I do.

Every once in a while, I'll check out and review my season passes on my Tivo to see what I'm recording.  The following is a list of shows that I'm currently recording (though not necessarily watching):

The Big Bang Theory
The Amazing Race
The Walking Dead
Last Man Standing
The Blacklist
Sleepy Hollow
Modern Family
Marvel's Agents of SHIELD
America's Funniest Home Videos
Brooklyn Nine-Nine

Comic Book Men
Chaos in the Skies
Brain Games
Outrageous Acts of Science
Rick Sebak*
The Three Stooges
Happy Days
Gravity Falls
Phineas and Ferb

That's a LOT of TV watching.  I should point out again that this is just what I record, not all of it is watched.  I also only record new episodes of the shows, not repeats, except for older classics like The Three Stooges and Happy Days.  There're a lot of similar shows, and you can likely figure out where my interests lie.  I love classic cars, especially the muscle cars from the late 60s and early 70s, so I watch a lot of shows about cars.  I watch only a few major network shows.  Like the books I read, I watch mostly nonfiction stuff.

It's still a lot of TV, though, and I hate that it makes me appear to be a couch potato.  I used to be a bit more anal and hated to miss an episode of the shows I watched regularly.  I guess you could have called me a manic completest.  But I'm over that now.  There's a lot more to life than watching TV.  But I figured I'd share what I like to watch.

Have a great evening, everyone.

* - Rick Sebak narrates quite a few documentary shows that originate out of Pittsburgh's PBS station, and he has a very laid back style that I enjoy, along with the road trips and subjects that he features.  My season pass automatically records anything on PBS that he does.
