I could watch the food network all day and be thoroughly entertained, but not have retained a single recipe. I’m the same way with the DIY network, I could watch all day regardless that I don’t have a place to do DIY projects, I just like to see what I could do if I had the want to and the place to do it in.
We have a satellite plan that I am going to reduce drastically very soon, the movie channels play stuff I’ve either seen, don’t want to see, or saw when I was a child (the latter being most often the case). We watch the History channel, the Smithsonian Channel, BBC which is a great channel, there’s another few channels we watch, including the Speed channel, that feature car auctions. I believe that you can learn from television, but agree that spending too much time watching it can be detrimental.
A long time ago, I made a joke about the three things that J likes to watch the most and called them the three C’s: Cars, cartoons or Cops. I’ve found it’s a pretty safe guess that one of those three things will land on the set when he has the remote.
Some of my favorite shows:
Hell’s Kitchen (definitely number one on the list) We have this set up to auto record on the DVR.
Dallas Mavericks games (when I have domain over the remote)
Gordon Ramsey’s The F Word
Law & Order
Law & Order CI
Last Comic Standing
America’s Got Talent
Nightrider – the old episodes
My Wife & Kids
King of Queens
Cash in the Attic
Those are a few of my favorites that watch when I can, a lot of it is rare because J doesn’t watch it, and we’re usually watching it together. When the hubby is working overtime I get Saturday mornings to watch movies. What are your favorite shows or channels to watch?
