Look, I'll admit it: I watch a lot of TV. I find it relaxing, an excellent way to shut my brain off after a day of brutally, excruciatingly boring academic reading. I'm sure I could find other outlets (exercise, sudoku puzzles, sewing), but this is working for now.
Without further ado, my current favorites (in no particular order)
Veronica Mars: Yes, it's long since been cancelled, but I enjoy re-watching all of the episodes. I love spunky Veronica and sulky Logan the best.
Modern Family: A most adequate replacement for The Office, which I'm starting to dislike as time goes on. Sofia Vergara kills me every time. "Don't you give me an old tomato."
Criminal Minds: This one's totally disturbing. Mr. H-B has forbidden me to watch it within an hour of going to bed because I'll often wake up screaming from horrible dreams. I also like to imagine Fat Tony saying all of Joe Mantegna's lines.
Brothers & Sisters: Family drama. But really, it's all about Sally Field. Okay, fine, and Dave Annable.
Desperate Housewives (oh, stop cringing, DAD): I've been hooked for a long time. It's shameful, but what can you do?
Community: Completely weird. Completely wonderful.
I also confess I've recently been watching some Star Trek: Next Generation and not hating it. Thanks, Mr. H-B, for making me an even bigger nerd than I already was.
Now that I've shared my (shameful) favorites, what are you go-to shows?
