TV is such an important part of our culture, that I wonder was there meaning in life before its existence? 😉
Think about our daily conversations with our friends, co-workers and family members and chances are there will be a TV reference in there. Every year we eagerly wait for the new season of a favorite TV show, and we’re also enticed to watch new shows so we can bond with them. After a short period of time, it’s pretty clear that certain shows become a fetish for us; they are part of our lives, they get woven into our thoughts, our conversations, even our dreams. In short, the shows you watch become a reflection of your personality. By telling people you like X, you’re telling them about who you are (well, part of who you are).
So, who am I? What do I watch? I’m not going to make an exhaustive list, but there are shows that I really must watch on a weekly basis. This year (much like last year), my favorites are as follows:
Battlestar Galactica (aka BSG)
There are others, but that’s pretty much my top 3. So, what does that say about me? I’m not entirely sure. I suppose I’m a bit of a geek since I like BSG, but for those who haven’t watched the show, you’re really missing some great TV that not sci-fi geeky at all.
Lost appeals to my love of shows that explore the paranormal and the paranoid.
Rescue Me is wonderfully gritty TV that explores the unvarnished human condition in an age where we love to idealize people who put their lives on the line to save others (i.e., firefighters). However, we often overlook how flawed these firefighters are in their day to day lives. It’s really brilliant TV!
So there! I’ve laid my cards on the table. I’m eager to hear your top 3 TV shows. I’ll meet you in the comments section, okay?
