Summer TV

Okay enough about tennis. (Played 4 times in the last week and I’m stiff and sore and still not good!!)

So as a new topic, it’s time for a summer round-up of what I’m watching.

I watch a lot of TV. I do a lot of work programming websites on my laptop in the evenings, and almost all of it I do in front of the TV (Gotta LOVE a laptop).

This summer’s selection has been POOR! Here’s the run down of shows I’ve been watching:

Big Brother 6: There has been summers were I get completely into Big Brother, and others where I haven’t watched it at all. This summer, I think I’m giving up on it. I’ve watched about half of the shows so far. There isn’t a single person on that show that I can identify with.. or even like much. Maybe Kaysar or whatever his name is. But it’s the same ol’ same ol’. I realize they have a new house, but it doesn’t make a difference. I have always hated the veto idea and the stupid house keys. The first season was really the best, since then, not worth watching. If I hear someone say anything about “it’s only a game” or “in this game” or anything about the word GAME I have to flip the channel.

Beauty and the Geek: I’ve watched a few episodes of this, by accident. I get a bit of a kick out of it. Very stereo-typical, but not bad.

So You Think You Can Dance: I saw part of one episode. It made me laugh. That’s what counts.

NCIS: Here’s a goodie. I didn’t start watching this show until the last couple of episodes this season. The season finale BLEW me away! What an ending! Now I’m watching the old shows as they repeat. There is really good chemistry between the characters. The girl in the lab, Abby, is my favourite character!

INXS Rock Star: LOVE IT. Finally a show with some fantastic singers. And no pop crap, it is real ROCK. This is one I don’t like to miss.

Any one else a couch potato? What are you watching this summer?

  1. i watched almost every leg of the tour de france. i loved it. probably the second hardest trophy to aquire (behind the The Stanley Cup) and the hardest individual trophy. I’ve watched some baseball, gotta love the Toronto HiDef feed. uh, i’ve caught a couple of episodes of Myth Busters. terribly good stuff that is.

    that is about it.

    i think you’re the only person i know that acutally likes the INXS stuff though. i did see an episode, just to know what it was like. i think leanne has watched 3 now. sad really.

  2. Rock Star INXS kicks the ass of Canadian Idol, So you think you can dance, and Big Brother EASY.
    They can really sing! Good songs too! I always wanted to be a lead singer of a rock band; maybe that is why I enjoy it so much.

  3. For the record, I have only seen INXS twice. But did enjoy it better than the idol shows.

    I can’t say there has been much on tv this summer.

    It is good to be outdoors as much as possible, with friends, family and sporting events.
