So yesterday I was listening to NPR (that’s not why I’m not cool. Listening to NPR is one of the only things I get cool points for), and there was a story on about how the new Must See TV shows all have main characters that are bad, but that they make you love.
I had no freaking clue what they were talking about. I have never seen ANY of the shows they were referencing.
Breaking Bad? Nope.
Weeds? Never heard of it.
Some new Kevin Spacey thing on Netflix that’s going to change the way we view television? My “recently watched” account is 100% animated content.
I can’t even remember the other shows that people are IN LOVE with because – once again – I am completely unfamiliar with them.
I don’t watch Girls, and I have zero interest in Downton Abbey (come on, even the spelling is pretentious. Cue the angry mobs with pitchforks).
I love me some Big Bang Theory and Modern Family, although sadly the most recent several episodes of each sit unwatched on my DVR (I am, however, completely caught up on “Teen Mom 2″).
But the NPR story made me want to get into something, so I don’t feel like a complete loser – but I’m not sure which show I should try.
Which is where you come in, people. Someone tell me what series I should get into! Preferably something Andy and I can enjoy together (he will not watch Teen Mom, sadly). Oh, and I hate violence and stress. And things without happy endings. And ESPECIALLY things without endings at all (I’m looking at you, Lost).
But other than that, I’m totally open!
So help me, friends. Make me cool! Or at least, you know, not utterly and completely clueless about post-1990s pop culture.
