Top Ten Shows of the Decade

I thought I should follow the annoying internet trend and make a list of the tope ten shows of the decade.  But since I’m lazy and I hate the idea of a top ten list of anything I’ve decided to put as little effort as possible into this list. (I do like reading other peoples lists, but it’s hard to rank my favorite shows.  Also I don’t think anyone is objective enough to rank these shows, the decade has barely ended, how do we know that Modern Family is so good and Community isn’t?).   So instead of writing about shows and running out of enthusiastic adjectives I’m creating a photo list:

What I’m Watching Now (Winter 2009/2010)

This is just a list of all the TV shows I’ve recently watched and shows I’m going to be watching quite soon.

I wrote a similar post in the Fall and the Spring, feel free to see what I was watching back then. And don’t forget to check out my Other TV Shows page.

The 2009 Golden Globe Nominations

Here are the nominations for the Golden Globes this year. I got these from Zap2it.


Best Television Series (Comedy or Musical):

“30 Rock”
“Modern Family”
“The Office”

If you know me well you’ll know I want 30 Rock to win.  I guess The Office comes next.
I haven’t watched the two new shows, Glee and Modern Family.  I’ve heard only great things about them, but I’ve avoided new network shows.

Best Television Series (Drama):

“Big Love”
“Mad Men”
“True Blood”

No Lost, how unfortunate.  If Lost ever does win awards I hope it’ll pull a Return of the King and just win everything in one year to make up for the other losses.
If I can’t have Lost I would usually hope Dexter would win, but season 3 was pretty weak.  I’m watching season 4 and it looks better.
So if Lost can’t win, and Dexter was disappointing, then I guess I hope that True Blood or Mad Men win.  I’m a new recruit to both shows, and while I would choose True Blood over Mad Men, season 3 of Mad Men was the best season yet.  I’m a little torn.

What I’m watching now (fall 09)

The new fall season seems to start tonight, and we just had a stellar summer season.  I’m talking about TV of course, not nature or anything like that.

Spoilers abound below, so if you are behind on any of these shows then probably don’t read the blurb beneath the headings.

TV Shows I watch

What did you have planned this summer?  Hopefully it didn’t involve anything outside because I want each and every one of you to watch one or all of the shows on that list (start at the top for the best results).  Let’s do a quick analysis of where you are now in your TV watching habits:

If you only watched one or two of these shows then you have a lot of work to do.

DarkUFO has just put up a link to where they are having a poll/survey for show of the year and other categories.  Lost is nominated so go vote for it here.  (I also mildly suggest that you vote for 30 Rock as comedy of the year.)

Hijack: New Shows (Oct 5- Oct 30, 2008)

This post should cover all the shows until the new year.  I’ll post some smaller posts if any new shows, appear out of nowhere.

Kath & Kim

Thursday, Oct 9, NBC

This show is based on an, apparently, very popular sitcom in Australia.  It stars Molly Shannon (YAY), and Selma Blair (yay) as mother and daughter.  I will watch anything with Molly Shannon in it, this is no exception.  She is hilarious, and it’s not her fault that she’s weird looking, she’s still hilarious.

This show might actually turn out to be a huge disappoinment though.  Apparently the execs went to town with the “creative direction” so if there are laugh tracks feel free to turn your TV off.


Friday, Oct 17, NBC

I have a soft spot for period movies and TV shows.  The story of this one should be pretty obvious, it’s just an adaption of Robinson Crusoe. 

I think I might also have a thing for deserted islands.

30 Rock

Thursday, Oct 30 9:30pm, NBC

The return of the funniest show on TV, in my opinion.  This show is just too well-balanced, the supporting cast is crazy but in so many different ways that they make Liz Lemon seem normal.  If you haven’t watched this show yet, head over to

This year will continue the tradition of having bi named guest-stars.  Jennifer Aniston is coming to play Liz’s crazy roommate who falls in love with Jack.  Oprah is apparently going to play herself, and Liz will embarrass herself in front of her.  Megan Mulully is showing up for an episode or two.  And Will Arnett is coming back.
