Thank goodness summer TV is over. Why can't any station put anything decent to watch on TV over the summer period here in this country?? All we had was cricket, B-grade movies and repeats of old, mostly crappy TV shows. I'm lucky that I had the Nintendo and DVDs to see it through.
Thus it's very good that, mainly starting this week, normal high-quality programming resumes. It's more than adequately demonstrated by the fantastic all-new episode line-up on tonight.
It starts off with How I Met I Mother, continues with Lost and Law & Order: Criminal Intent (SVU will be recorded for later viewing), and finishes with Family Guy.
Since we got married, I really have reacquainted myself with watching TV. In the years ranging from the end of school through to the wedding, I didn't really follow any prime-time TV shows. In fact I actually stopped following the ones that I did watch (eg Buffy, Stargate, X-Files). I guess it was really the lack of a solid daytime occupation, studying and working at nights, and also going out with Despina that meant that I consistently didn't have spare time in the usual weekday prime-time timeslot.
Now that all those inhibitors are gone, and we are married and both working 9-to-5ers, it really lends itself to coach-potatoism in front of the TV.
Now if you'll excuse me, i've got some TV to watch 😀
