I watch tv on a very haphazard basis. If I'm nursing Norah, or eating lunch, I will turn it on and flip through the channels. Usually it's the middle of the afternoon and all levels of garbage are on, so I end up switching back and forth between Dr. Phil and Family Feud, or I bemoan that nothing good is on at the same time as Martha (inclusive of Martha), so I run through the channels about 14 times, and then the baby's full or the food is gone, and I turn it off and go back to my other haphazard hobby, which is your blogs. I am absolutely a remote maniac. It is not even worth it to me to watch tv if I don't have the remote and can change immediately when a commercial comes on. I really hate commercials. So usually, I'm watching parts of two or three or four shows and I really have no idea what is going on in any of them. That's why I cannot deal with hour-long dramas. Who can keep up with the plot when you just catch a few minutes here and there? Yech! No thank you. I'm all about the game show, I like reality shows of the non-trashy variety, a witty sitcom just warms my heart. Also, let it be known that I do not schedule tv in my life. Not go somewhere on Tuesdays because American Idol is on? Are you kidding me? That's on my pet peeves list, for sure. So, because I don't usually watch tv in the evenings and because I don't believe in paying for tv, so (anything other than basic) cable, satellite, tivo, et cetera are out of the question, I really have not seen even one episode of about (WARNING: made up, totally fabricated statistic!) 90% of what is out there.
I came very late to the genius that is The Office.
But, oh baby, how I love it now!
I'm on Season 2, Disk 3 in my Netflix queue. I am filled with great glee whenever the next disk arrives in my mailbox. Love it, love it.
I should have listened to Neil when he told me about the original British series about 5 years ago. He's very au courant when it comes to music, movies and television. His current fave: The Golden Girls. You heard it here first. They're making a comeback.
