Has anyone been watching The Walking Dead on AMC? I read about it via someone’s blog or Twitter, can’t recall which, and I’m glad I did, because I was able to catch up this week via Comcast’s On Demand before the third episode aired on Sunday. But it’s not scary like the person wrote. Interesting, for sure, but it doesn’t really scare me at all. Perhaps I’ve watched one too many horror films? Oh, I finally saw Paranormal Activity a few weeks ago. Now that was more scary than AMC’s zombie series.

I’m starting to think… no, that’s a lie, more like I know, that I watch too much TV. But I love it. Feel free to weigh in on my viewing with what you like or recommend:

America’s Funniest Home Videos
Family Guy
The Walking Dead

How I Met Your Mother
Rules of Engagement
Gossip Girl
The Event
Diners Drive-Ins and Dives

Raising Hope
Nick Swardson’s Pretend Time

The Middle
Better With You
Cougar Town
Human Target
South Park

The Big Bang Theory
30 Rock
The Mentalist
* And in January Thursdays will include two more shows: Parks and Recreation and Perfect Couples

The Soup
Forensic Files (only new EPs since I’ve seen the old ones)

Saturday Night Live (more like fast-forward through it on Sundays on the DVR because most EPs suck ass)

Damn, that’s 28 shows currently, 30 starting in January (probably not going to watch American Idol now that Simon is gone). Yea, it’s safe to say I’m an addict. I don’t watch most of the shows at the time they air, though, and usually not even the same day they air. The one-hour shows, with the exception of Dexter, tend to back up and then I’ll watch 2 EPs at a time to get caught up. Yea, as if that makes all that TV-watching any better, right?

    I highly recommend “Modern Family” – it was recommended to me last month and it only took me a couple weeks to get completely caught up starting from Season 1 (they are on their second season now). This has gone from a show I never had heard of, to my #1 favorite show by far. I like it even better than The Office. Try it!

    By the way, I have to thank you for introducing me to The Big Bang Theory. I had seen you mention it again and again on Twitter over the last year or so, and I made a mental note to download Season 1. Jason and I finally started watching it last month and we are now caught up to the current episodes. We both really love that show, so thanks for talking about it so much! ;D

    Also recently we started watching The United States of Tara, which is a Showtime show (we don’t have Showtime)… it’s been really interesting and entertaining so far.

    OMG yes! “The Walking Dead” has not disappointed! I’ve been so excited about this. Even though I haven’t read the graphic novel, I was familiar with it and was really excited for a zombie series. Especially on AMC where one of my other favorite shows “Breaking Bad” airs. (HIGHLY recommended, but you have to start from the beginning). I haven’t even heard of some of the shows you watch!

    I was really enjoying “The Big C,” but our free Showtime ended…the day before the Season Finale. D’oh. Hopefully, we can rent it soon! I also watch Family Guy, How I Met Your Mother, The Big Bang Theory, The Office, 30 Rock, Parks & Rec (COME BACK!!!), Friday Night Lights (last season…sniff…), Castle. Modern Family is HILARIOUS and I also recommend it to you as Kristi did. I was watching Caprica, but it got cancelled, which is okay…it was kind of boring. I used to watch Hung and Entourage, but no longer have HBO.

    My tv show obsession right now is Supernatural. The 6th season just started and my husband has watched it from the beginning, constantly recommending it. I never watched it, but recently decided to start at the beginning. I borrowed the dvds from a friend and am about 1/3 of the way through Season 4 right now. I LOVE IT! Great characters…cute too, which doesn’t hurt ; )…great, consistent mythology. Sometimes it’s funny, sometimes it’s scary, and sometimes it’s just gut wrenching emotional…sometimes all three in one episode. I LOVE that they answer questions…in Season 4 we are learning answers about things that happened in the pilot. So good…gah, Lost could have learned from this show.

    I’ve been watching The Walking Dead and I like it. I actually thought it was just a one time tv movie for Halloween, and was pleasently surprised that it was a series (although, what only 6 episodes???). I’m a fan of 30 min tv shows that you don’t have to watch every week to follow what’s going on… love Big Bang Theory, Modern Family, and The Middle. I really like Dexter and True Blood, but don’t subscribe to premium channels so I’ll have to wait for the newest season to make it to Netflix.
