Last week's "Arrested Development" quote was a hit. Asking for television quotes from you people who are supposed to supply me with material, was not. Only ONE (1) person gave me a quote. KrazyKris suggested "BAZINGA!" And I liked it because it was short and exciting, but confession: I HAD TO GOOGLE IT. And then I learned that it was from The Big Bang Theory, a TV show that I have been planning on watching, since, oh, the big bang ( I am that old.) I know! I am a loser! Here is a list of all the television shows I haven't watched. but I know that I should:
The Wire: Just power through the first three seasons, someone told me, then it gets crazy good!
Modern Family: I am 100.3% positive that this show would be my style, but I didn't catch the first episode, and if I don't catch the first episode, then I have anxiety knee-pit sweats about starting in the middle.
The Middle: I have heard that this is funny, too, and that it has waffle jokes.
Breaking Bad: I actually started watching this and loved it, and then my mom got cancer and I jettisoned all shows about cancer (see: The Big C).
Survivor: I am not highbrow enough to make any sort of holier-than-thou comment about reality television. I'm sure that this is fun, but doesn't this show take place all outdoors?!
Treme: This show looks stressful.
And of course, The Big Bang Theory.
Dork alert! The main reason I want to watch The Big Bang Theory? It has Billie from Charmed.
And I am sure that there are plenty more. I would recommend a few shows that maybe you're not watching? The United States of Tara (uh-maz-ing), Wire in the Blood (on Netflix! British, not for the squeamish), the Sherlock Holmes miniseries (also on Netflix, it has Benedict Cumberbatch, the most Britishly-named man of all time and Tim from Gervais' the Office), and It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia (so funny!).
Okay, so what should I be watching? (and include a quote with it, pretty pretty please).
