OK - first I have to admit. I just have Basic Cable. You know, regular channels, pretty much, plus PBS and KET.
But there are some GREAT shows there.
Here are my favorite TV shows right now. I don't always get to watch them, but when I do, I enjoy them.
First off, I have to admit. My favorite daytime show is In the Heat of the Night. I know, it's an old show, but what's great about it are the actors, the stories, and the fact that you can watch the characters change and grow over time. Carrol O'Connor plays the Sheriff, and what a great sense of humor he shows on it. The show tackles a lot of social problems, race relations, AIDS, and lots more.
I used to like the judge shows too, like Judge Judy and Judge Joe Brown, etc. I can still watch them, but I guess some are starting to sound like each other, so I give them a pass sometimes. I mean, you kind of know how the "loan vs. gift" money episode is going to go... and the "My dog got loose and bit the other dog" one. I guess I've watched these TOO much.

My guilty pleasures...
Some guilty pleasures have to be Walker, Texas Ranger and Matlock. I love how the bad guys get their comeuppance in the end on most of these shows. And there is some overlap in the actors too. Another guilty pleasure has to be Kitchen Nightmares with Mr. Tact, Gordon Ramsay. http://www.fox.com/kitchennightmares/
During the week, I like Shark Tank, Scandal, Grey's Anatomy, Once Upon a Time, Body of Proof (which has been OFF for too long!), the Big Bang Theory (which I don't get to watch much), Sherlock, and (of course!) Downton Abbey.
I mean, who wouldn't just LOVE this show?
Here are GPB's Top Ten Maggie Moments from the show.
And I have to admit that sometimes an old black and white movie can hit the spot.
I was thinking about Hulu lately too.
Having Hulu Plus or another service would be fun in the future. It would be great to watch some of the OLDER TV shows I used to like, like Mannix, Kung Fu, 77 Sunset Strip, and more.
I do NOT have a good recording service either, (like TIVO) but maybe someday.
Do you have such a service or subscription? Let me know how you like it.
And what are YOUR favorite shows? Share them as a comment. I'd love to hear what YOU like too.
