1) One Tree Hill
This is a show that I have had kind of a yo-yo relationship with. I would pick it up and then drop it, pick it up and drop it again. One of the things I always loved about it though was when I would come back I could quickly figure out what was going on. This final season has been amazing, a full on emotional roller coaster. The other night my boyfriend came in when I was finished with an episode to ask me what could be so wrong since I was having a pretty ugly cry.
2) General Hospital
I obviously love me soapy stories. GH was my show starting when I was twelve until about 4 years ago when OLTL took over since it was so much better. Now though since GH has a new creative team it has quickly become must see TV in the afternoon. I can pretty much tell you every afternoon at 2 o’clock local time I am on my couch watching what’s happening in the town of Port Charles. A few months ago I could barely sit through an episode, most of the time turning it off just a few minutes in because it wasn’t keeping my attention.
3) The Big Bang Theory
I will never forget the first time I saw this show, I was watching the pilot online through yahoo. I had heard about it, thought it was actually pretty silly from what had been written. It wasn’t bad at all then, and I started to watch it every week on CBS, it’s one of my favorite shows ever. Seriously I can’t believe how many hours I can waste watching this show, especially the nights the reruns are on TBS. I love all the characters, though I think I relate the most to Penny at times. When you get down to it, she is really the outsider.
4) How I Met Your Mother
I started watching this during the second season, but quickly worked on getting caught up later on thanks to DVD’s and reruns. I have always wanted to play “Have you met _name_of_friend_?” The adventures that this gang have might be a little off beat and crazy at times but come on don’t we all have some sort of crazy set of stories? Okay so most of us probably haven’t gotten into a fight with a goat, or waited for doppelgangers to decide when we start a family, but isn’t that part of the fun of it?
5) Mad About You
Okay I know this isn’t anything new, however I TiVo reruns from WGN every single day. I love this show; I adore watching Jamie and Paul navigate their relationship while trying to balance family, friends and work with each other. Though when they get to the episodes where they start to question their relationship they’re hard for me to watch because you feel like Jamie and Paul are your friends going through a rough patch.
