So, Holly recently blogged about 5 shows you would find on her Tivo. Sometimes I have to steal Holly's ideas because she is a blogging genius. (Or a genius in general.) Now, Holly only listed 5. Good for her. That means she isn't a TV addict like I am. My DVR is always full. Ask my husband.
Because I am a self-confessed TV addict, I have to do a Summer Edition for now...and will do a Fall Edition in the Fall. I also have to list 10, because, well, I watch a lot of TV. That's not to say I only watch these 10 shows. Quite the contrary. But, these are the 10 you will most often find in my DVR during the summer:
Friday Night Lights - I came to the FNL party a few seasons in. My Mom had been bugging me to watch but I had it in my head that it was a stupid show about stupid Texas high school football. Then, one fateful day, she had me over for lunch and turned it on, telling me I wouldn't be fed until I watched. She may have also baited me with Taylor Kitsch. So, I watched it...and I fell in love.
The Closer - Holly picked this one too. Seriously, this show is everything that's great about TV. Great acting, smart story lines, and a great southern belle in Kyra Sedgwick's Deputy Chief Brenda Leigh Johnson. I have to thank my Mom for getting me hooked on this one, too.
Deadliest Catch - I've never missed an episode of this show. I've been watching it since day one. Of course, this has been a tough season because my favorite fishing family, The Harris', are rocked by Captain Phil's death.
Hell's Kitchen - This show is a guilty pleasure. I don't watch much reality TV, but I love Gordon Ramsey. This season hasn't captured me like the previous season's have, but I still watch it every week.
Burn Notice - I think this is such a fun show. It's kind of a spy meets vigilante storyline and it hooked me from the first episode. This is one I'd say you kind of have to watch from the pilot though.
White Collar - There a million great things about this show...but none better than Matt Bomer. Also catch this one from the pilot, otherwise you might be lost.
Lie To Me - I learn important life lessons watching this show. No seriously. This one also has really smart writing. Plus I love every single actor in the cast.
Rookie Blue - This is a newbie. It's in it's first season, and I won't lie, I originally DVR'ed it because Gregory Smith is on it and I still miss Everwood. Plus, its actually pretty good.
Leverage - This is also a vigilante show. (I have a thing for vigilantes.) Great writing, great cast, fun show. Oh, and Timothy Hutton, who is brilliant.
The Glades - I should mention only one episode of this new show has aired, but I loved every minute of it. I love one-liners that deliver and I chuckled through this whole show. I don't think this show would have worked without Matt Passmore as the main character. He has perfect timing and makes this dramedy (that's a drama that also makes you laugh, FYI) really work.
What do YOU watch in the Summer?
