Hello! My name is Junebug and I’m a TV-oholic. It’s true. When I was a child it was my escape. I lived on a farm and aside from my pets (cats, dogs, rabbits, horses & goat) during the school year I was often on my own. I came home to 3s Company, Happy Days, and the occasional after-school special. Then in high school I found a social life and rarely watched any tv shows except in the morning my cousins and I would watch Bewitched in the morning before getting on the bus. In college I had a group of girlfriends that I would meet up with every Thursday. We would watch 90210 and then head to the club to dance on the stage by ourselves. However, as I aged and I noticed that I started to lose my confidence again. I’ve retreated to my old pal the TV. Fortunetly and unfortunetly we now have a dvr which means I can watch more shows then ever. A long ways from the farm antenna with two channels or three on a good day. I know that in the next year I have to make my break from the tv. When we move or the contract is up in June with our provider I am cutting the cord. I hope that most of the shows I like will be online but if not I just need to move on. I have got to start getting back out into life again. But for now I have a few more months of TV so here are some current thoughts on my favorite shows.
DWTS – Kate really? She is just akward out there and so is Shannon, Aiden(better this week), Buzz, and about half the cast. So far no favorites for me except maybe Chad or Evan(but we know I have a thing for Olympians.)
Lost – I’m almost completely lost. Seriously? I love you – why have you forsaken me?
AI – All the people that auditioned and this is the best? There are about three that are in a league all their own and the rest are just eye candy or something. Serious fastforward action happening with my remote.
Survivor – I left it many seasons ago because I got bored. I came back this season because some of my favorites were back. Those bit.ches have some issues. I might not last the whole season. First of all, it reminds me that I’m getting old. Second of all, some of them are just a bucket full of crap.
The new show Who do you think you are or something like that – I feel like a total geek that I am so into this show. Last week, M. Broderick discovered one of his relatives in the same cemetery where I found one of my relatives. Small world.
Amazing Race – I about sh*t a brick Sun. when I thought the cowboys were gone. I screamed when I found out it was a non-elimination. I have two other teams I want to go home now. Love me some cowboys.
I, also, watch Castle, Chuck, Hoarders, The Closer, Psych, Burn Notice, NCIS, CSI(all but Miami), V, Parenthood, Ugly Betty (I will miss thee), Glee, ANTM, Community, Office, Mentalist, Flashforward, Without a Trace, Undercover Boss, Celeb Apprent., and several more if you can believe that.
How about you? Any shows you can’t miss? Have you found you can live a full life away from the TV? For me it is a security blanket. I can turn on the tube and turn off my life. I know it is not good for me but sometimes we have to do what is not good for us until we are ready to face what is good for us. I’m going to search for a 12 step program or maybe I will just tivo a recovery show.
