Frank Lloyd Wright said, "TV is chewing gum for the eyes." What are your favorite shows to chew?
First of all, I love that quote. I am such a chewing gum fan, so this spoke to me. I don't have much free time for TV, and I have a horrible memory for what shows are on when. DVR has helped me, but time hasn't cooperated. Sometimes, I will have five or six episodes recorded and give up.
But I have a few shows I'm addicted to, some guilty pleasures, and some shows I wish I was cool enough to love.
My Favorite Shows Last Season
Castle - Big Fan of Nathan Fillon. He drew me to the show initially, but the will-they-or-won't-they dynamic keeps me coming back. (The first episode this season did not disappoint!)
Once Upon a Time - My girls and I watch this together. Love the concept of fairy tale characters living in the modern day with a curse that makes them forget who they are. Such fun.
Pawn Stars - I don't know what it is I love about this show, because normally I avoid the History Channel like the plague, but it's charming and interesting.
Chopped - When in doubt, I turn on Food Network. It's easy on the eyes and stomach!

So You Think You Can Dance - In my mind, I'm matching them move for move. In reality, I'm a dork.
The Voice - Growing weary of American Idol, I gave this a try and really enjoyed it. I don't love it enough to DVR it, but it's an easy catch-on-the-fly kind of show.
New Fall Shows I'm Looking Forward To
Nashville - I'm a big fan of country music, and this looks like wicked fun.
Elementary - I love the concept of a modern-day Sherlock Holmes accompanied by a female Watson. I've already set my DVR to record this.
Wish I was Cool Enough to Watch
Game of Thrones
Sons of Anarchy
But I'm a big sissy and prefer my TV shows to be light. I used to be a huge fan of the 30-minute comedy show, but I haven't seen one in awhile that made me want to record it.
Am I missing something? What's your favorite chewing gum for the eyes?
