Couch Potato

Professional Couch Potato

October 16, 2013 | No comments


I love watching TV. I could be a professional couch potato, if I only had the time to actually watch TV.

Last year I barely watched TV at all (except for Bones, we can never miss Bones). Whenever I had time, I would do marathon sessions on Netflix or Amazon Prime to catch up on everything I had missed. I like Netflix and Amazon Prime – it is very convenient when you can watch shows whenever you want, and you don’t have to wait a week for the following episode (I’m quite an impatient TV-watcher) but this semester, I’m trying to take time to actually sit down in front of the TV and relax a little. (Yes, I know, most people try to spend less time in front of the TV. What can I say; we have a very comfortable couch.)

Returning shows I’m excited about:

Bones | Doesn’t even need a motivation. We’re addicted and have been since the first episode.
Beauty and the Beast | I really shouldn’t like this show, but I cannot help it. I did have a weak spot for the original show from the eighties with Linda Hamilton and Ron Perlman.
Haven | So bad that it is good. I was a bit hesitant when the first season started, but I got completely hooked. Love that it has made it to the fourth season without being cancelled. This show also wins the prize for the best bad special effects ever.
Revenge | Keeps surprising me with all the twists and turns.
Hawaii Five-0 | Alex O’Loughlin is great as Steve McGarrett (Did anyone else watch Moonlight a few years ago? The voice over was epic!) but my favourites are Chin Ho Kelly and Dr. Max Bergman.

New shows I’m excited about:

The Tomorrow People | Superhumans. Conspiracy. Action. What else could you wish for?
Betrayal | Hot. Hot. Hot. It even made me like Stuart Townsend.

New shows I thought I’d be excited about (but I’m not):

Sleepy Hollow | I fell asleep during the first episode and never got around to actually watch it.
Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D | I had high hopes for this show but lost interest after a few episodes.

What TV shows are you excited about? Or not so excited about?
