So even with all my crazy schoolwork during the week, and running between activities, I still find time to watch TV. However, I have to usually limit myself to about 2 TV shows at a time during the school year, or else I start spending too much time watching TV and not enough time studying! Right now, during the fall TV season, my two shows are The Office and Glee.
The Office is a show on NBC that I probably picked up in its second season. Since then, I have become totally obsessed with the show, buying all the seasons on DVD and watching every episode. The show is about a paper company in Scranton, Pennsylvania run by a sweet, yet narcissistic manager, played by Steve Carell. I think Steve Carell is one of the funniest actors I have ever seen. The Office was the first show where I would start laughing uncontrollably and hysterically. Even though Steve Carrel is gone from the show now, it is still a hilarious show because of how the show has evolved and how it touches on real issues in life that are serious or uncomfortable and makes it funny. It is on every Thursday at 9:00 P.M.
Glee is a TV show on FOX that first aired in 2009. When my sister first told me about it, it sounded slightly childish and boring, being about the lives of high school students dealing with different problems and singing about what they go through. But I actually started to convince myself to watch a couple episodes and I really starting enjoying the show. I get a lot out of the show because while some of the issues on the show are very unusual for high school students to experience, others are very common and it reminds of my high school experience. Also, I do enjoy the music, being a musician, and even though they have transitioned into more modern music recently, the music is still enjoyable to listen to. The show is on Tuesdays at 8:00 P.M.
I would most likely also be watching House right now, but unfortunately I am a season behind. I plan on using Winter Break to catch up! However, it is a great show and I would highly suggest watching it if you have not seen it. It’s witty, provocative, and intellectually stimulating.
