June's FEATURED AUTHOR: What's on TV?

June 23, 2010
Today, June's Featured Author Chloe Neill stops over with a fun post on what she watches... A nice comparison to bounce off last week's post on what she reads. *grin* Here we go!

What's On My Television??
Hello, readers. This is the HD version of "What's in my Bag." Today, I'll give you some insight into what's on my DVR--and what's distracting me when I should be writing about Merit's adventures.
(I know, I know. But sometimes I need a break!)

I don't watch a lot of dramas. In fact, I'd say everything I watch falls into one of three categories: (1) smarty-pants comedy; (2) capers; and (3) food/culture travel shows.

Smarty-Pants Comedy
I spend at least an hour of every day watching animated television--mostly Family Guy, or whatever happens to be on Adult Swim on Comedy Central. That's my evening ritual, a little bit of time to laugh and unwind. (And I maintain that the Adult Swim line-up is some of the smartest comedy on television!) :-)

I'm also a huge fan of the NBC Thursday night line-up: Community (LOVE Joel McHale); Parks and Recreation; The Office; and 30Rock (Liz Lemon is my hero!). I love smart, quirky comedies, and can't get enough of those four.

I'm not a huge action buff, but I love capers that can teach me something. I think Burn Notice and Leverage are among the best of the lot. Burn Notice teaches me all about strategy and spy lingo. Leverage teaches me a variety of ways to scheme my way into any situation. And they're both well acted--can you say Bruce Campbell? New episodes are auto-records for me.

Most of these pop up on the Travel Channel--No Reservations, Bizarre Foods, Man v. Food. I love the way the hosts wrap culture and food together. I always learn something! I also love Diners, Drive-In's and Dives on the Food Channel. I'm forever making lists of fun places to visit the next time I'm traveling.

Well, hopefully this gives you a little insight into my "background music." Now, go away. I have TV to watch!

Gee Chloe... You've already got me hooked on BDB, and I'm loving Roarke in Naked in Death. I think you're dangerous for my reading habits. *grin* Soooo... I am not going to pay attention to what you watch on TV. Nuh uh, no way. Hmm. But, you do have a point about Family Guy. Not that I watch it religiously, but I do appreciate the giggles. And capers, yes!! Ok, ok, I said I wasn't paying attention. Bah!! 

My DVR records NCIS (because I still think Mark Harmon is yummy, and I have for most of my life), Private Practice (because Kate Walsh is sexy and so is Taye Diggs) and The Closer (because she is just so bloody snarky!). Yes, I am shallow enough to watch for yumminess instead of content, and I'm not afraid to admit it! I do prefer movies, and will watch (and re-watch) those I love--even if it's just for the (shallow) yumminess. *grin*
