Every season I pick a couple of tv shows that I like to watch and these are generally the ones that I follow throughout the season. We don't watch a lot of tv in our house, but I do like having 1-2 shows to watch in a given week. This year, after watching a number of shows at the beginning of the season, not much had grabbed my attention - I've watched a few episodes of The Mentalist and Top Chef, but I'm kinda tired of these already. I thought I'd have to wait until January to watch a show I knew I'd like - American Idol! Yes, I do enjoy American Idol quite a lot; Geoff and I have followed three of the past four seasons.
Then, as I was about to give up on finding anything, I watched a show that grabbed my attention. It's sad, I know, and utterly juvenile, but it's true nonetheless: I hereby confess that I now watch Vampire Diaries on Thursday evenings. The show just started a couple of months ago, around the same time that I watched the original Twilight movie. The two are quite similar in many elements and I suppose that this drew me in to watching Vampire Diaries...well, that and the character of Damon, the deliciously wicked vampire brother.
It's a bit embarrassing how much I look forward to Thursday night at 10 pm but it's true. Unfortunately, I haven't actually seen a new episode in a while: last week was a repeat; the week before it wasn't on; and the week before that I was out and forgot to tape it. Oh well, there's always hope for tonight!
