Oh gosh. The second part of the TV season is back. I’m not a big TV watcher. The last two years I’d say I watched about 4 hours a week… and that’s being generous. But this season, there is so much good TV on it’s hard not to watch.
Here are the top 5 TV shows as recommended by all of us at arnoldcam headquarters…
Battlestar Galactica. More about the political, social, relational issues than it is about sci fi. Example… the beleaguered remnant of the remaining* human race find a way to wipe out the murderous and pursuing Cylon race completely. The show was about those who said wipe em out and let’s be done with them vs. those who said “if we wipe em out, we’re as bad as them.” Sound familiar? We may as well be talking about the terrorism scenario today.
Prison Break, season II. The prisoners are out and the guards are in prison. The conspiracy theory here is taut, fast moving and fun. Plenty of interesting and well written characters.
Heroes. A breath of fresh air in this reality TV driven tv-scape. Ordinary people begin finding themselves with powers…. and a mission to stop the destruction of a city. Come on. You know you imagine having a power!
Friday Night Lights. Loved the movie and the TV show is just as well written. New characters and more development. And let’s face it, we all love our football.
Studio 60. I’m probably alone here but I love the well written, witty dialogue. A couple of the characters are so relatable to me in terms of their position, their beliefs and their personality that it’s hard for me not to get drawn in.
What am I not interested in that everyone else is?
24. When he finally goes to the bathroom, I way start to think it might be realistic. And for you NewSongers, it’s distracting to see that Chloe girl who looks exactly like Sherry Shaw.
Grey’s Anatomy. McBoring.
Desperate Housewives. You’d have to lock me in a basement to get me to watch this. It’s a night time soap, basically.
The Office. Somehow, I think the best parts of this show are on YouTube. And I just saved myself 26 minutes.
I’m sure you have your own opinions….
*spell check made this say “reaming” originally. Just so Kyle’s comment makes sense below.
