Couch Potato Series: What I'm Watching

Drama!

Showtime Cable Television:

The Big C - love it. Reserved, stifled, and by the book school teacher receives startling news - she has terminal cancer. Cathy begins shedding her tired sensible way of living and starts embracing life; enjoying every minute she can, while she can --  Who says you can't eat dessert as an appetizer?  Adorable show. Also, check out Gabourey "Gabby" Sidibe who plays Andrea in the series - she's phenomenal! Yes, she can act.  Airs Mondays at 10:30pm ET/PT. Showtime Cable Television.


Dexter - will try my best to continue watching. Sadly, my interest is slowly starting to phase out on this one. Since Rita is gone, I'm giving it another go around. Hello Season 5! Airs Sundays at 10pm ET/PT. Showtime Cable Network.


CBS Television Network:

Criminal Minds -- love love love this television series.  Elite team of FBI profilers who analyze the country's most twisted criminal minds, anticipating their next moves b­efore they strike again. I'm hooked. (I miss Gideon!) Airs Wednesdays 9/8p Central. CBS Television Network. Catch the marathons airing evenings on A&E - every Friday, Saturday, and Sunday.


AMC:

Mad Men -  Set in 1960s New York. It's sexy. It's stylized. It's provocative. This drama follows the lives of the ruthlessly competitive men and women of Madison Avenue advertising, an ego-driven world where key players make an art of the sell. Joan is my favorite! Love her demeanor. Airs Sundays 10/9c. AMC.


Reality Television!

Lifetime Network:

Project Runway -  This season the show gave 17 designers the opportunity to launch their careers in fashion. I love watching creatives in action -- the whining they can keep...sometimes I feel like hitting the mute button on the remote when the designers talk, they whine and complain too much. Nevertheless, still one of my favorite reality shows to watch. Airs Thursdays 9p ET/PT. Lifetime Network.
 

Bravo Television:

The Real Housewives of Washington D.C - I enjoy watching this show only because it has less cattiness and drama. These ladies appear to be more lady like than the majority of other Bravo Real Housewives. In other news, I am (surprisingly) looking forward to The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills -- will see how long I can stomach watching those ahem 'ladies' -- have you seen the trailer for the series! If not see below...gawd.

The Real Housewives of Washington D.C. airs Thursdays 9/8c. Bravo Television.

Comedy!

FOX Network:

Glee: Musical-Comedy Drama. Cute little series showcasing a group of eager and ambitious Ohio students striving to outshine their singing competition while navigating the cruel halls of McKinley High. Sue Sylvester -- very funny. Airs Tuesdays 8/7c. FOX Television Network.



CBS Network:

The Defenders - Borders the line of Drama and Comedy (Legal Show) Slightly Entertaining. The main reason I'm watching...Jurnee Smollett has a role in the series. Jurnee is such a wonderful actress. I'll definitely try to support the show as long as I can. Go Jurnee! Airs Wednesdays 10/9c. CBS.
