Yes, I watch my share of television, I admit it. There’s no mistaking I love movies and a great television show gives me a bit of that movie feel I like so much. The problem with most television today is it’s all about reality shows, and the free stations are full of that garbage. Something I really have zero interest in. I know folks love American Idol, I could care less, they love The Bachelor, meh, I could care less. I fit into a different demographic, although I don’t know what it’s called. It would be something like “People that think reality TV sucks” demographic. Yes, that’s the one I’m a part of. For some strange reason that demographic is better served by cable stations. Yes, of course they have their reality shows, but they also have some of the best programming in television today.
Here’s what I’m watching these days, when I get the chance, most of it on pay stations.
- Dexter – Showtime – We’re actually watching this through Netflix instant queue.
- Burn Notice – USA
- Breaking Bad – AMC
- Southland – TNT
- Justified – FX
- Parenthood – NBC
UPDATE: After receiving some comments I needed to make an adjustment. Here are a few more TV shows I enjoy.
