My TV Shows, and Why I’m in Love with Nashville

O-nashville-abc-570

Here’s the TV shows I keep up with these days:

Drama:

Nashville. A special mention here — I highly, highly recommend Nashville on ABC, y’all! The acting, music, production and plot are all a solid A. Connie Britton and Hayden Panettiere each earned Golden Globe nominations, and it’s clear to see why. I was upset when ABC canceled GCB, but this is far, far better, and if you’re a country or rock fan, you’ll love the music. (Here’s a Spotify playlist: )

Once Upon A Time. Great addition to ABC’s lineup now in its second season. Because this is a TV show based on fairy tales on the ABC network, you’ll see a lot of references to fairy tale characters we’re used to seeing in Disney classics — but there are a lot of other mentions too. Nearly all of the Disney princesses are accounted for at this point — Snow White, Aurora, Cinderella, Belle, Mulan…just a few more and we’ll have the whole list!

Revenge. This is one I didn’t think I would love at first, but it’s gotten me hooked. Madeline Stowe is amazing, and I wish I had the steely resolve of Emily Thorne.

Mad Men. I got into this very late, via Netflix, but I am eagerly awaiting Season 6. Still need to watch episodes 6-12 of Season 5 as well.

Comedy:

Modern Family. This is one that my husband and I eagerly await together. He’s not a fan of my dramas, and I’m not a fan of his, so it’s nice to have at least one show we can watch together.

Family Guy. See above, except it’s a cartoon. (:

The Office. Sticking with it til the bitter end this season. It’s hard to watch these days, and I find myself distracted and doing other things while it’s on, but I’d like to see how it ends up.

Shows I Used to Watch:

Gossip Girl. I followed the entire series until the abrupt season finale in December. XOXO. Blair and Chuck forever.

Grey’s Anatomy. I started watching this show in its first season, during my last semester of college in 2005, but I willingly gave it up toward the end of Season 8, when the plots were starting to really jump the shark, and the cast had changed so much that it wasn’t the show it started out as anymore. I haven’t looked back.

Private Practice. Like most Grey’s fans, I started following this when it debuted, but gave it up at the same time as Grey’s and don’t miss it.

You’ll see that reality TV is absent from this list. Occasionally I’ll watch an episode of Biggest Loser, Bachelor/ette, and in the past I’ve followed Idol, but I’m just not into reality in general.

What are the shows you follow these days?
