Just Getting Started...

As you may or may not know, television has been a passion of mine for years. It started with Sesame Street and has taken me through the TGIF years to the WB, and now into the hodge podge of prime time television I watch weekly. While TV watching may not be classifiable as a hobby, I will do it anyway because in here I’m in charge. I love TV. Most nights I can think of nothing better than coming home after a long day and watching my shows. I love picking apart the dialogue and predicting, often inaccurately, how the rest of the season will play out. There’s something really interesting about the bond you form with the characters over the seasons. Television gives you a glimpse into the mind of people similar to those you encounter everyday. Only, in the world of television you actually get to pick them apart and figure out what makes them tick. It’s like being a fly on the wall of all the juicy conversations you wish you could have heard. But the thing I think is most compelling thing about television is that allows for a deeper understanding of relationship. I wouldn't argue that television is the end-all-be-all of relationship guides, but it definitely offers a different perspective.

So I thought I’d try out this blogging thing for a while since I think that my friends and family get sick of listening to me gush about my first love. I’m not sure how it’s going to work yet. I may write once a day or once a month. But I’ll write about shows I follow and let me know what you think. I love to hear other people’s opinions whether its about the show or my incorrect grammar. Just please don’t comment with any spoilers. There is nothing I hate more. If the writers/director wanted you to know something, they would have told you.

Thanks for reading!
