It is a strange phenomena… This past year of TV seasons, I have become obsessed with more shows than I think I’ve sat down to watch in my entire life! I blame it on the devil, well, at least that’s what the preacher was talking about yesterday. Television is an anti-social event, which in turn is not good for relations. The message yesterday could be summed to the bumper sticker slogan (and I quote from the preacher) ‘Love God, Love People… Go to Heaven’ And that’s it! Television is this anti-social activity that apparently people spend an average of 4-7 hours a day doing. Wow… who? Some folks say they watch TV with their friends and significant others, which is being social… right? Ok, well next time some of your friends are being social around a television, just take a step in front of the TV and ask how they’re doing, I’m pretty sure they’ll be very social at that moment in telling you to get your bottom out of the way! But hey, I think TV is still OK… in moderation that is.
Let me tell you about a few of my favorite shows now. For those who noted in the last post, the suspected topic of todays post… well… maybe next time.
The Office - Thursdays : 8:30PM : NBC
This is by far my favorite show of the moment. The word to describe is is Hilarious! I find my self laughing out loud in big ole’ belly laughs more for this show than any past sitcom or anything. It takes place in Scranton, PA at a paper distributor named Dunder Mifflin. The entire show is based on the operations of the company and their disfunctional little society they have created. At the beginning of each episode there is a little blurb, or sketch mind you, that usually has nothing to do with the rest of the episode, and they are the best. 5 of 5 stars here folks, a must watch.
Smallville - Thursdays : 8:00PM : The CW
Smallville is in its 6th season I believe, and they are still trucking. It is basically Superman meets All My Children, or some other cheesy soap. Clark Kent is in his teenage years and is struggling with the discovery of his powers, his relations with peers, and his own identity. Great show, a good watch. 4 of 5 stars.
Heroes - Mondays : 9:00PM : NBC
What a show. It took me a little while to get into this one due to its graphic, sometimes extremely gruesome scenes, but the plot has drawn me. This show is seems to be a remake of X-Men sometimes as all the characters have X-Men like abilities. The plot is very good though. ‘Save the cheerleader, Save the world!’ Hey, whenever there is a line like that, you know it has got to be a good show. Heroes is very bloody though, not to watch if you can’t take much carnage. This is the only show I am not caught completely up with yet, and it is a killer now, in exam week, to not be able to watch as many episodes as I would like. I won’t tell you much about the specifics of this show, just because it could ruin plot if you are wanting to start watching this one. Highly recommended… 5 of 5 stars.
Have a good Monday, wish me luck on my exams!
