great merriment



I try not to watch too much tv. I even try and avoid ever seeing shows I think I might like because I don't want to get hooked. (Our friend Andy insisted for a long time that we'd love 30 Rock and got so tired of waiting for us to watch it that he finally dropped off the dvds at our house - we loved it. One rainy afternoon we watched 8 episodes in a row.) But the other day I heard the creator of Glee on Fresh Air and decided to see what Terry Gross was gushing about.

I loved it.

I haven't broken it to Steven that I am newly addicted to an hour long show about a high school glee club with multiple musical numbers in each episode, but maybe it'll be ok if I agree to watch more soccer.

Haha! I had to google what a glee club was.

My husband mocks me to no end for watching classic musicals like Singing in the Rain and Summer Stock. I think he'd revoke my TV privileges if I starting watching this show! ; )

Our favorite show is The Office!

It's on tonight and I'm not sure how to break it to him. Maybe I'll go to the gym or something. I made Steven watch Singing in the Rain around Thanksgiving last year and I'm not sure he's forgiven me.

I love The Office!

I've never heard of Glee. Can you watch it online? We donated our tv, so I've been completely out of the loop. I know what you men about trying to say away so you don't get hooked. I'm allowing myself one show at as time. Right now it's Project Runway, which I can watch on the Lifetime website. Some other all-time faves of mine include Six Feet Under, The Office (American version), Big Love, and Heroes. I must admit that preview is quite enticing...

you can watch it online on Hulu! It's great.
We thought about donating out tv, but the karaoke machine hooks up to it, hee hee.

I guess I will have to give it a try. My favorite show True Blood, just had their season finale, so I need a replacement.

Had to come back and tell you I watched it! LOVE it! Thanks sooooooo much for the recommendation :)

Isn't it great? I told my dad to watch it (he pretty much hates all tv) and he called me about 7 seconds after the show ended to tell me how much he loved it.
