I’m a TV junkie and there is no way I can say I have just one favorite TV show.
This show is almost 30 years old and it is still laugh out loud funny. When I’m in a sad mood, I’ll queue up an episode on YouTube and it will cheer me right up. I quote from it often and no one knows what I’m talking about.
I’ve seen every episode. I can quote several lines from several episodes (example: Rose: “Can I ask a dumb question?” Dorothy: “Better than anyone I know.”). And I still laugh out loud every time I watch a rerun. Which is often since two different channels play GG reruns every night.
MY SO-CALLED LIFE
This show debuted when I was in high school and this was my high school experience. I was Angela Chase in high school. Now when I watch the show, I identify more with Angela’s parents than her. This is a show I intend to watch and discuss with my kids when they’re teenagers.
Filmed in my home town and set in the fictional town of Everwood, Colorado, this show about a family picking up the pieces of their lives in a small town after their wife and mother dies, is one of my favorite shows that holds a special place in my heart. When they canceled it after 4 seasons, I literally cried. I accosted poor Tom Amandes on the streets of Park City telling him how much I missed Everwood. This was my Mom and I’s favorite show together and for that reason alone it will always be special to me.
LAW AND ORDER: SPECIAL VICTIMS UNIT
I never even watched this show until the writer’s strike a few years ago when it was on high rerun rotation on USA. Now I think I’ve seen every episode (some multiple times) and I have watched many a mini-marathon of the show. I just love to watch Stabler beat the crap out of a child molester.
This is the funniest show on television right now. It is another laugh out loud comedy. It’s funny, intelligent, and silly. Three things I love. And Joel McHale? I mean, c’mon…he’s gorgeous.
I don’t care what anyone says, I love the American version of this show better than the British version. I’m not much into fantasy, but this show about a werewolf and vampire trying to ignore their natures to try to be human again has sucked me in.
