Letting my Geek Flag Fly!

Although my DVR stays 65% full on a daily basis with episodes of Caillou, Blue's Clues, and Little Einsteins, I have a few shows that I'm pretty devoted to.  I know that may shatter the impeccably classy facade so many of you portray me in, but I must speak the truth.

I'm really bummed there isn't going to be a 2nd season of Terra Nova!!  I'm frackin mad! (100 pts if you can name that show)

I admit that when I first saw the previews, I rolled my eyes because I knew the hubby would want to watch it, which would inadvertently make me part of the fan base as well.  Honestly, I started to look forward to new episodes.

From my research online, the sources state that the fan base was solid, but Fox didn't think the storyline was solid enough to offset the costs of CGI.

It was the perfect geek trifecta with a little of Stargate, Land of the Lost, and Avatar!

So, I'm hoping another network will pick it up and will continue to produce the show.  Unlike when the network that produced Gilmore Girls was bought out and the show ended shortly after.  Oy with the poodles already!

This is why I need to wait for a show to be in it's 3rd or 4th season to start watching!

The hubby will tolerate a lot when it comes to my shows, but he has to leave the room when I'm watching Army Wives, Dance Moms, or Sister Wives.  What are some of you guilty TV pleasures???

I've never heard of that show, but if it's sci fi, that's probably why. That's not my thing so much.

But reality? I'm all about it. ALL ABOUT IT. I watch The Bachelorette and all that crap. Every bit of it.

I KNOW!!! I was pretty bummed about this show too and looked forward to watching it. Even AFN carried it!!! Thomas liked it too. Major Bummer!

We still have Downton Abbey and The Walking Dead to look forward to. I just started watching Sister Wives and had my jaw ache from having it hang open the first couple of episodes!!!

I miss Lost.

And Gilmore Girls.

Most of my shows are on break now but currently I'm watching a lot of the stuff you are.
