Tis The Season.

I think you all know I have some pretty strong opinions.

That's opinions, by the way, not onions. Though I did have some pretty strong onions on my hot dog the other day. Wowza.

So like I was saying....opinions.

So here it is - premier season; when all of the new shows they've been advertising over and over and over and over (I'm talking to you, The Event) finally come to a TV near you. And I'm not gonna lie, I've been a little excited. Why? You ask. Well, I'll tell ya. I just don't watch enough TV. I really don't. Lately I've been looking at my life and all the things I'm accomplishing and I so I said to myself, "Self, look at how your laundry is piling up and your fridge needs to be cleaned out so badly a tomato actually raised its hand and cried, 'Me! Take me!' You know what you need self? You need some new shows to watch." And I agreed with myself, as I normally do in these situations, and so I plopped down and made a list of all the shows I want to record and try out.

And I'm not gonna lie. There were lots of 'em.

And it made me think of last years season premier post when I was all high and mighty and said I wouldn't watch Cougar Town. Which I do. Because in all honesty it has nothing to do with being a Cougar and everything to do with good timing and quippy lines. Also, its about six friends who live in the same cul-de-sac and hang out at a bar. And I thought to myself, wow, Courtney Cox in a show about six friends who hang out a bar. Interesting. Really out of her comfort zone. But actually its super funny, and you all should try it, unless its bad and then I blame this girl I go to church with who told me I should watch it.

But if this year pans out to be anything like last year I will start by recording 15 new shows and end up being a faithful follower of about two of them. Like last year when I started out with Mercy (huh? What is that?) and Accidentally on Purpose (where did it go? It was here and then poof it was gone) and ended up only recording Modern Family, The Good Wife and Cougar Town.

So which new shows do you think will make the cut? And which shows are you still watching from last year?

i need answers to this question, too. i download my tv - it's totally legal. (at least that's what they say, something to do with bits and pieces of it coming from here and there and that makes it not the same as pirating.) and i have amazingly slow internet, so it takes forever to download one show. and right now i'm in the process of downloading anything that says it's season 1 and episode 1. but that doesn't mean it's good. but by the time i find out it's not good i've got several days invested in it.

so guide me! please.

Modern Family all the way. Plus Pawn Stars and American Pickers on the History Channel---I'm totally addicted. Also, pretty much anything on HGTV, especially Property Virgins. And any reality show.....Project Runway, Chopped, Deadliest Catch, Top Chef, Mantracker, The Next Food Network Star, Dancing with the Stars, Biggest Loser, American Idol....I love them all! Yes, my DVR works overtime.

I love "The Big Bang Theory" & "So you think you can dance". Cake Boss is fun to watch. Dancing with the Stars, but not as much as SYTYCD. I've even gotten into watching "Cupcake Wars" Man I need to get a life!

I just started watching Veronica Mars on Netflix and am wondering where I was three years ago when it was actually on TV. I can't believe how good it was and only lasted three seasons. Sometimes we come late to the party. Thank God for Netflix and DVDs and Hulu.

Modern Family is the funniest show on television. However, I still remain faithful to my big 2: Dancing with the Stars and Biggest Loser. Plan on becoming a fan of Detroit 187, but I don't know if I will make it around to that or not. Happy Watching!!

Okay, so Detroit 187 was captivating. It was funny, dramatic, and shocking. Now I can't wait until the next episode. I never do get tired of good police dramas.

The Whole Truth was pretty good. Jimmy wants to see Detroit 187. I still like all my faves...Greys, Private Practice, and I loved Mercy (im a nurse...I can appreciate it), Bones, SVU, Fringe, Brothers and Sisters, Desperate Housewives. There's too many!
