The One with the Top [insert number here] Shows I'm Stoked About

And now, 
because I forgot it was Tuesday until it was already past my bedtime, 
because I haven't slept well in days, 
because I am a lover of quality (I use that term a bit loosely) television entertainment (I know, I know, not the best use of my time, but I love tv, I can't deny it.) 
and because I was really excited to watch the first episode of the new session of The Biggest Loser tonight, 
I give you, 

the top ten six tv shows I'm totally looking forward to this fall. 

1) Parenthood
I tried to watch an episode or two in session 1 but never got into it. Probably because it on past my bedtime. But then Britt starting talking to me about it during session 2 and I began watching to keep up with our conversations. I am now totally hooked. I was looking forward to last Wednesday's premier BIG TIME. Even if I did watch it on Hulu the next morning. 

2) The Office
I'm really not sure how I'm going to feel about this new guy--he totally creeps me out--but after watching the former seasons on dvd in rapid succession (some episodes multiple times), I'm a serious fan. Sorry I wrote you off in the beginning during the first 5 sessions.  

3) The Biggest Loser. 
I have been quite a diehard fan of this show for the last three years (which is, what? 6 sessions?), but I'm not so sure how I'll feel with all of the changes. I don't do well with change. Except, of course, when it comes to people changing their lives by losing insane amounts of poundage. 

4) Criminal Minds
I have been a lover of crime shows for a long time. This began out of a desire to spend time with my dad. Dad loves crime shows. I watched crime shows with dad. Now I love crime shows too. I scare myself sometimes--bad dreams, and paranoia--but it's totally worth it.

Criminal Minds is BY FAR my favorite crime show of all time. It's SO well done. So gripping. So intense. And the character development is just awesome. I love me some Garcia and Reed and Shemar Moore (because I can't remember his character name at the moment and because he's my one celebrity crush. And yes, Kevin knows all about this.)


5) Modern Family

It just doesn't get much funnier than this. Yet another show I didn't think I'd get into, but when Pastor Dale and the family was talking about how hilariously awesome it was, I couldn't help but watch. And I'm so glad I did. 

6) How I Met Your Mother (or affectionately referred to as HIMYM) 
Kevin and I totally love this show. It's FRIENDS for the 21st century. We borrowed the first however many sessions from Sara and Kyle while we were at camp in 2010 and we were totally hooked. I can't wait for new episodes! (And I also can't wait to own the dvds. I could watch these guys over and over.)

  1. Since I only get two channels, there are few shows I get to enjoy on an actual TV.

    First and foremost is Grey's Anatomy. *supergeeked!* new season starts this Thursday night... and so does Big Bang Theory!!!

    ... and I'm slightly excited for Private Practice, but it is on sooo late at night.

    {And I'm going to be watching HIMYM on netflix this year too!}

  2. I am actually looking forward to Harry's Law, Grey's Anatomy, Private practice and Bones

  3. Love Parenthood & I hulu it during the following week, too, so no spoilers! Mom thinks I'm totally Adam while I think I'm more of a Julia... we're dorks like that :)

  4. I watch just 2 of your shows, but yes Parenthood and HIMYM!!!!! Love them!

  5. I love Criminal Minds..with a passion. Lol :)
