When it comes to TV shows, I am quite picky about what I watch. Gone are the days when I used to just turn on the TV and start watching anything. I don’t even really like channel surfing anymore. To be quite honest, unless I have a specific show on that I really want to watch, I don’t watch that much TV anymore.
I can get nostalgic when I think of the days of turning in every Tuesday night for Full House or Home Improvement or Friday nights for whatever came on TGIF. Also gone are the days of religiously watching Lost, the best show ever to come on TV IMHO (and yes, I DID enjoy season six AND the series finale). I find myself gravitating more towards books and movies than I do TV.
That being said, there are several shows that I still consider a must watch. Sunday nights have now become my go to must watch night. Unfortunately for current me, Game of Thrones, The Walking Dead, and Downton Abbey are all not currently on at the moment. But when they are, HELLO 9 pm Sunday night viewings! I also have found a love for discovering new to me shows on Netflix which allows me to have hours of binge watching in my attempts to catch up before the new season or series finales come up. These have included How I Met Your Mother, Sherlock, Breaking Bad, and Doctor Who. I may or may not have been known to catch up on the entire series in a month’s viewing (cough, cough).
There will be posts in the future where I’ll spend time talking about certain shows, characters, my thoughts on plots, etc. I’ve found that I’m gravitating towards a lot of geek culture shows and it’s really been awesome finding those fans who are loving it as much as I do. It’s also been awesome (at least for me) to discover that as I’ve gotten older and figuring out myself more, exactly what type of shows I’m gravitating towards vs. what I used to watch in the past.
What TV shows have you been hooked on watching lately? What other shows should I try binge watching?

Have you watched Elementary on CBS? I really like that one too. I am hopelessly hooked on Castle. Counting down the days till the season premier.
I haven’t gotten into Elementary yet. Castle is another show I’d like to start watching but sadly it’s not on Netflix or Amazon Prime.
Also, with a kid named Desmond, clearly I loved Lost too. 🙂
Elementary, Castle … NCIS (all, sadly, not available streaming). I’m enjoying Suits. I just recently devoured West Wing and Studio 60 <— SUCH brilliant writing, in that one.
I enjoyed Numb3rs, too.
I want to watch Dr. Who, but I don't know where to start. (I got confused about the old ones and the newer ones.)
Re: Doctor Who…start with the 9th Doctor (Christopher Eccleston) which started in 2005. That’s when they revived the series. It’s sadly impossible to watch ALL of the older doctors because many of the older tapes were erased forever by the BBC.
