If we were having coffee we’d talk about TV shows. On my About page, I share that I like to tell people that I don’t own a television. That’s true. I act all snooty when I tell that lie too. I always get called out on it; it’s hilarious to me. Not sure why I find that so funny, but I do. Just how I roll.
I’d tell you that I hate soap opera type shows so Scandal, Grey’s Anatomy, and Downtown Abby (I refuse to spell it any other way). If you are a fan of Downtown Abby, we’d disagree about whether or not the show should be considered soap operaesque. There’d really be no purpose trying to change my mind though. I’m unconvincable. That show is filled with drama, romance, betrayal, and sap. I ain’t having it. You’d probably try to counter that Britain’s treasure, Dame Maggie “Prime of Miss Jean Brodie” Smith, is glorious on Downtown. That is a great argument and valid point, but sadly, I cannot abide by the show since I don’t suffer soap operas. Or bustle shows. It doesn’t matter if the period is Victorian or Edwardian, I’m not into it.
If we were having coffee, I’d tell you that I love classy shows like It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, Blackish, Archer, New Girl, and Big Bang Theory. I also like procedurals like Criminal Minds, Sherlock, Sleepy Hollow, and Elementary. I’d ask you which shows you enjoyed watching. If your response didn’t include a comedy or cop type show, I’d judge you. If you say anything about enjoying Lifetime movies, I’d roll my eyes pretentiously. Those tv movies are pure trash. I wouldn’t admit that whenever I actually watch Lifetime movies, I am typically entertained and enjoy them. There are some things we don’t share in front of company; my Mama taught me that. So yes, I judge people on their television choices, and I’m hypocritical when it comes to tv. Another example of how I roll.
I don’t doubt that you’d call me out on my ridiculous television snootiness. I deserve it. We’d probably chat about other shows we enjoy watching. I’d talk about my love for British television shows including panel shows. I wouldn’t share my love/hate relationship with Doctor Who. Not yet. I’m not in a place where I can talk about it yet.
If we were having coffee, which shows would you tell me you enjoy watching?
