Shows

I realized not so long ago that I don't have any non-animated shows. As such, a five year plan was started. Here is a list of some of the shows I am/want to get into:

My name is Earl - I've never seen it. I love Jason Lee though. I even suffered through 'A Guy Thing' just for him.

Entourage - loads of people love this show. I've only seen two episodes (a newer one with a fat guy who stole a shrek doll, not so good, and the pilot, a little patchy), but I have the first season on my shelf so I will be watching it. It seems like a real guy show, maybe the counterweight to sex and the city? I think I will really like it.

Weeds-I loved the pilot and Mary-Louise Parker is great. They dropped two of my favorite characters right after the pilot though, and later episodes seemed to lack a direction. Still, the music is really good so I'll be giving it another go.

Battlestar Gallactica-I like sci-fi. I like battles, it seemed like a good fit. I watched the first season though I am not sold. I'm curious about the bigger plot lines, but the actual episodes I don't enjoy that much. I feel like enjoying watching a show is required to consider it a 'show.'

Lost-Never seen it. Everyone from epileptic cows to librarians seems to love it though, so I figure I ought to try it.

Let me know what you think of any of these shows or if you have recommendations.


Rejects so far:

The Office (both versions) - I can't take it. I know the performers are good I know it's parodying office life, I know it is an acquired taste. Watching it was painful.

The 4400-I like Ira Steven Behr, saw one episode and it was pretty bad. I would excuse on bad story, but all of the performances just seemed weak.

my two favorites are arrested development and scrubs. also you would probably like stella which only ran for like two months on comedy central but was quite hilarious. i don't know if you can get dvds though
