let's assume I have time to watch tv: fall 2011.

my favourite cast ever
Lately, I've been borrowing DVDs of my favourite tv show 'Allo 'Allo! from the library, watching them over and over, and renewing them as often as the library would let me so I can continue to watch them over and over.

OMG, this show is HILARIOUS.  It got me through university exams, providing me with some much needed comic relief without fail.

If you've never seen it yet, you should go to Youtube and watch some clips.  Go! Right now!  I'll wait for you.  Go on.

Back?  Okay.  Now, I've been watching 'Allo 'Allo! almost exclusively.  Almost.  Because as much as I love that show, and despite the conclusion of long running shows I've enjoyed (Smallville) and the cancellation of promising shows that were never given a chance (Stargate: Universe), there are still a handful of tv shows I look forward to watching every fall.

Here's the list of what I'm watching -- and not watching -- this season...

Shows I just can't miss:
Doctor Who - The season finale is tomorrow, so I'm sad, but it'll be time for the Christmas Special soon, so yay!  I think Matt Smith is my favourite Doctor.  The whole River Song story line is simply fascinating!
Torchwood - Not sure how they're going to top Miracle Day.  Also not sure when this will be on again.  By the way, am I the only one who thought The Blessing apertures looked like gigantic vulvas?  Ya?  Oh.  Okay, never mind.
Fringe - This show is seriously messed up.  Which is why I love it so.  And OMG Peter!
Eureka - I even loved it after Hottie McHotster Ed Quinn left the show.  Although Colin Ferguson made it really easy to tune in.  Creative and cool.  Final season.  Sad. At least I'll still have...
Warehouse 13 - The spin-off of Eureka.  Similar in their 'out there'-ness, so I hope it'll be enough to make me happy.  Because making me happy -- that's important.
Sanctuary - Abnormals.  Yeah, if you look up at this list, you'll see what I love.  Abnormals.  Plus, I adore Christopher Heyerdahl.  ADORE.  Have you heard his voice?!  It's like being wrapped up in luscious dark chocolate.  Ahem.  Anyway, abnormals.

Shows I thankfully enjoy because it's always on when my kids have the tv on:
Phineas & Ferb, Wizards of Waverly Place, Good Luck Charlie, iCarly

Shows that I just can't or won't get into for fear of it sucking me in and spitting out only a shell of the human I once was:
Dancing with the Stars, Gossip Girl, 90210, Survivor, Amazing Race, American Dad, American/Canadian Idol, Desperate Housewives, Biggest Loser, The X Factor... and those are the ones I can remember...

Shows people tell me I should watch:
Castle, Glee, Community, Parks & Recreation, Being Human, Supernatural

So, what are you watching?  What do you think *I* should be watching?


  1. LOL! Will you still love me if I tell you what shows I watch? Desperate Housewives, Glee, The Amazing Race, Big Brother, Grey's Anatomy, The Office, America's Next Top Model, Dancing With The Stars, Gossip Girl (sometimes). And I'll stop there... ha!

  2. Listen very care-fulleee, I shall say this only werence.

    The main thing I am waiting for is Walking Dead Season 2...

  3. We are Gleeks, we like House, NCIS, and This new one called "Person of Interest" I think you could catch on to that one.

  4. A new show I like is "New Girl" :) And I like this season's Two and a Half Men because Ashton Kutcher's hilarious.
