I haven’t done a Spill It, Sunday in a while – not for lack of wanting to, but that I somehow get wrapped up in something and before I know it, it’s Monday (ew). I’ll take advantage of the snowy weather to link-up with Arman for a little look into my lack-of-pop-cultureness today.
What was your favorite TV series growing up?
I loved Rugrats
, Rocco’s Modern Life
(Remember when he almost got deported? I was so clever for a child.), TRL
and The OC
. Let’s get real though – besides Lost, the only other show I’ve seen to completion is The OC.
Fun story: my mother walked into the room during TRL when they were playing “My Name Is” by Eminem – the part where he’s running around naked. MTV was promptly blocked from every TV in our house (but if you typed in the number you could get to it). How am I halfway normal?
What is your current favorite TV series?
Parks and Recreation, Scandal and Downton Abbey. I really don’t watch TV that often, except for Good Morning America and hockey.
If you could guest star on any television show, what would it be?
Parts Unknown by Anthony Bourdain because it would mean I was somewhere super cool and with my hero.
Here’s a selfie of me today running in the polar vortex. Stopped by to say hi to Jimmy Stewart. This is also what I would look like if Tony took me to Antarctica to visit penguins.
What genre of TV do you enjoy the most?
Is hockey a genre? Other than that, probably travel. I would say comedy but all the shows I used to watch are either awful now (Community) or over (The Office, 30 Rock).
Which series do you think should not have been renewed after it’s first season?
The Big Bang Theory or Family Guy. For some reason I have a deep-rooted hatred for those shows. I don’t think they are funny – I think they are irritating.
Which series do you think deserved to be renewed but was not?
This is a hard one – maybe Sorority Life? Is that awful to say? I didn’t watch it religiously- and growing up, I never thought I would be in a sorority, but after becoming a sister – I really wanted to watch this show from the beginning.
[EDIT] Arrested Development, duh. Even though the Netflix season is pretty bad.
Chat with me:
What TV show should I watch next? What show do you hate? Did you watch Sorority Life?
