My Journey Along the Narrow Way

The Boob Tube…

Our family didn’t have cable for approximately 3-4 years.  We recently decided to try it out again and I feel like I’ve missed so much of our culture.  I don’t know if that is a good thing or a bad thing.  I guess it depends on the point of view.

That being said, I think I’m addicted to the show Hoarders.I’m not really sure what that says about me but I can’t seem to look away. I recently discovered that there is also  a show called Animal Hoarders and it’s wonderful too.  Of course, each time I watch Hoarders I feel like I need to totally clean my house before going to bed.  I guess that could be considered a good side effect of watching it.  Maybe?

Oh, and last night I watched a show called “I Shouldn’t Be Alive.”  It was the most nerve-wracking thing I’ve ever watched, but it was so good.

I feel like I’ve missed so many shows that are just like train wrecks.

A couple of other cool shows I’ve been watching:

Dog The Bounty Hunter – I’ve seen this before and forgot how much I liked it.  There really isn’t much of a redeeming quality to it.  I do like how kind they seem to the people after they have nailed them.  The also usually won’t put handcuffs on a fugitive (especially if it’s a woman) in front of their kids.

Cupcake Wars – this is a new show to me.  This is a really fun show.  I didn’t know there were so many varieties of cupcakes in this world.  The only negative about this show is it makes me crave cupcakes and I can feel the weight attaching to my thighs just from watching it.

Swamp People – this is a show about alligator hunters in the Louisiana bayou.  This is definitely of the train-wreck variety but I can’t look away.

Gene Simmons’ Family Jewels – I’m facinated with this family and Gene’s work ethic and skills as a parent.  OK…I understand that his morals aren’t that good (can you say happily unmarried?), but I still love to watch this show.

Scrubs Reruns – these just make me smile!  Who doesn’t love JD, Chocolate Bear, Carla, Dr. Cox, the Janitor, and Elliott?

So, I’d love to know – what are your favorite shows?
