Thanks to my wonderful Netflix account, I've watched several movies, which I've enjoyed, but I'd really like to find a great TV show on DVD to get hooked on. I love watching TV shows on DVD because it eliminates commercials, and you don't have to wait week to week to watch it. Instead, you can watch it marathon style...which may not be healthy if you're watching something like 24*.
Here are some of my favorite shows that I've come to love thanks to DVD:
Such an odd show, but it is by far one of the funniest shows I've ever watched. And I just about die everytime Portia de Rossi comes on screen because I would kill for her hair.
A friend gave us his DVD's for HIMYM last summer and we watched the first three seasons in no time. Anything with Doogie Houser in it is good in my book.
I watched the fist two seasons of LOST on DVD in about two and half weeks. It was all I could think about. Now I'm a crazy fan (like many of you!) and spend far too much time thinking about this crazy island.
This show is just juicy and addictive. The plot which revolves around polygamists living in a normal neighborhood is so far fetched, but you can't help but want to watch more.
J and I watched the first season of True Blood last month, and while sometimes it seems cheesy to us (the fangs make me laugh everytime), we still really enjoyed it. I haven't joined the Twilight bandwagon, but this show has made vampires seem pretty interesting to me!
My parents were big Dexter fans and let us borrow thier DVD's this past winter and it took no time to hook us. This show is absolutely revolting at times, but I loooove it. When my mom shared the plot of this show with me, I thought there was no way I'd get into it, but I was so wrong. It is so well written, and I find myself cheering on this crazy serial killer. Once you get past the blood and guts, you'll love it!
I saved Friday Night Lights for last on purpose. This is probably my favorite TV show on right now. While I love so many other shows, there is nothing with as much heart as this one. The characters are so beautifully crafted, and it makes me want to pack up and move to a small town in Texas each time I watch it. Seriously, if you've never seen it, give it a try!
Okay...now I want you to share some of your favorite shows with me! I'd love to find something to watch during the day, serious or funny! One of the best perks of my job is my free time in the summer and I have been loving every minute of it. We don't have cable, so the afternoons are very quiet around here. So please my wonderful readers...I know some of you love television as much as I do, so please share away!
*During the summer of 2005, J and I had this genius idea to watch season two of 24 in twenty-four hours. We are iditos. No one should watch that much Jack Bauer in such a short period of time or it will really mess with your head. I was serisouly convinced I was being followed by CTU.
