Pure TV Silliness.

Did anyone else hear that Dallas is coming back to TV?  I saw online that TNT has picked it up and that JR & Bobby are still going to be Larry Hagman and Patrick Duffy. 

Growing up, I wasn't allowed to listen to the radio or watch MTV, but by golly, we never - never - missed an episode of Dallas.  Let's face it, I would have been much better off to be listening to radio or MTV circa 1980's.  I learned all kinds of things from Dallas, a love of shoulder pads and big hair being the least of these. 

FYI...we also never missed an episode of Hee Haw.  No radio, no MTV, but I could watch Dallas and Hee Haw all I wanted.  I still can't wrap my head around that one.

Yesterday at the nursing home, I told my Nan that it was coming back on next year.  Her response "Just great, I'll be dead by then.  Do you think they can make it sooner?" 

I'll see what I can do Nan.

One of my recent favorite shows that I haven't watched in a while is The Office.  As funny as I think Will Ferrel is, he just didn't cut it as Michael's replacement and I quit watching.  It was recently announced that James Spader is taking over the spot.  I have to say, he's just weird enough that I'll tune in to see how it goes.  

My favorite show of all, however is (don't make fun of me) Dancing with the Stars.  I really like it.  I like the costumes, the music, the dancing.  All of it.  I know the outfits are a little on the skimpy side, but really, if I was built like that, I would have had the babies dedicated while wearing one of those get ups.  It also is right before Castle, which I think is a great detective show.  Basically, I'm really hustling to get my kids to bed on time on Monday night.

I do, limit my TV watching to right before bed while I'm folding laundry....otherwise I wouldn't get anything done.  I like to DVR my favorite shows and use my watching time to catch up on laundry or lesson plans or menus....whatever. 

So there you have it.  I like to watch TV.  I know the cool thing to say is that I don't watch TV because I'm too awesomely brainy, but it's just not true.  I enjoy it.

What are some of your favorite shows?

Parks & Rec, most definitely. It's like the Office where the lead is just as funny but not as mean. And I liked the Office. :) you would totally get a kick out of Ron Swanson's character, too.

I like Extreme Home Makeover, but haven't watched it in a while. We live in Poland and our television setup (the way hubby fixed it) is just enough to keep me off. Plus, with five kids, I don't have the time for tv.

Audrey, I watch Parks & Recreation some too. I loved that Karen from Will & Grace is Ron's ex wife and how crazy they are. Great show.
Rachel, Extreme home makeover did a show in our hometown a few years back. It was really neat to see the transformation.

I literally laughed out loud when I saw what Nan said. Hilarious.

Nan really loves Dallas.
