Typically during the summer I’ve adopted watching shows I’ve never watched before. Sex and the City was one of those shows. I never watched it during the regular seasons not until Season 3. Luckily Season 1 and 2 were running in re-runs on another channel so I was able to catch up pretty quickly.
I will admit that I love watching reruns from the 80s and 90s. The Golden Girls, The Cosby Show, A Different World, and Living Single are just a few that I will watch if they are on. Hey, it was good tv. When I was young I loved Bewitched and The Dick Van Dyke Show and still love both today. Again, it’s good tv, well-written and entertaining.
You should watch insert tv show title here
I’m accustomed to hearing “you should watch insert tv show title here.” For the most part, I don’t have a “type” so it’s hard to determine what I will like. There are some shows that just don’t float my boat. Even after the shows have won acting and directing awards, I’m not moved to watch. I think I will but ultimately it just doesn’t happen.
Thank goodness for TV Guides’ 12 Shows to Catch Up On but I don’t see myself watching American Horror Story: Asylum, Arrested Development, Bates Motel, Louie, Veep or Vikings.
Some shows I’ve never seen or only watched a few episodes and don’t feel inclined to watch include:
- Games of Thrones
- Mad Men (only one or two episodes)
- Community (only a couple of episodes)
- Breaking Bad
- Sons of Anarchy
- or anything with Vampires or Zombies (I’m so over this trend)
What would you recommend I DVR this summer?
