Last summer, I picked five series to start watching over the break. Fortunately for me, I only ended up "keeping" two of them. Unfortunately for me, those two were The Big Bang Theory and a little show we like to call Bones.
This year, I've only got four shows to get caught up on--unless you all have any suggestions.
The Mentalist, 23 episodes. I like the concept, I like the guy. Seems like it might work for a Bonesphile like me, although Leigh says she's not crazy about it. I'm going to give it a chance.
Gossip Girl, 43 episodes. I like The Hills. I can appreciate a good, campy, soapy romp about teenagers doing it with each other and then making lots of drama. We'll see.
True Blood, 12 episodes. I'm going to try to get caught up before June 14, when the second season premieres. I kind of just love Anna Paquin (Fly Away Home? Anyone?), and if I'm going to have anything to do with this silly vampire business, it's with a show like this. And I just saw on Wikipedia that the main characters are together in real life and gasped with excitement. Count me in.
Doctor Who, a bajillion episodes, but I'm just going to stick with the most recent series. Okay, you Brits are going to have to help me out here. Mostly, I think British television is weird and/or not funny (sorry), but from what I've heard/read/seen, I might like this one. And I have some time to kill. But with such a huge history, I can't imagine it's going to be easy to fit into this fandom. Any advice is greatly appreciated.
I also have to get legit with The Big Bang Theory and How I Met Your Mother, because I haven't seen every episode of those and I definitely want to.
Any other suggestions?
