Entertainment Tonight

The Main Man in my life is a film and television studies guy, with special love for tv. That means he has excellent taste in tv shows. I thought I'd share some with you since the cold is catching up and everyone likes to snuggle under the blankets with some lovable characters :)


This is one of our favourite shows. I don't know what to say other than that it is Awesome. That's right, capital A there. I love the constant pop culture references. The show has even inspired us to hunt down some other shows, like The Cape.

'A Fistful of Paintballs' is one of my favourite episodes, but you must start from the start. Or else.


British Heroes, how it should have been done. That's how The Man sums it up :) I never was a Heroes person, but I am definitely a Misfits person. It's dirty and gritty and tough. And really funny and even sweet.

When you're scared that they are running in circles in season 1, killing people and cleaning up the mess, relax. Season 2 blows it up and is so much better for it. I promise.

Modern Family

Watch the first episode and fall in love. I guarantee.

Better Off Ted

Like others to follow on this list, Better Off Ted was an unfortunately short-lived show that should have gone on and on and on and on and on and on and on. Massive love for Veronica in this one.

And Myman and Lem.

Arrested Development

I hadn't seen Arrested Development until this year. According to my boyfriend and friends, this was a great travesty. Into Season 2, I completely agree.

I love Lucille. I love Lindsay. I love Buster. It's funny, lovable and damn cute. Win win win, chicken dance :D

Freaks and Geeks

Another show that the boyfriend insisted on watching. I was a bit ho-har about it, mostly after listening to so many people rave about it. Listening to all the Freaks and Geeks talk, I thought it sounded boring. Not so. I get giddy and giggly watching this show. Especially the relationship between Lindsay and Nick :)

Haven't finished it yet, and don't want it to end either!

So, what are you guys watching? Any tv suggestions?


  1. I love Parks & Recreations...Lesley Knope has to be one of the single best characters on tv at the moment. And if you love freaks and geeks, you have to watch "undeclared" also by judd apatow and Jason Segel plays the most awesomely insane character ever.

  2. I've seen a bit of 'Parks & Recreations'. It does look really great :) Should get on board with that one.

    Never heard of 'Undeclared', but shall have an internet snoop on it :)
