Paring Down my TV Shows

There is just too much good tv to watch. They keep saying the internet is killing publishing, but maybe it’s more that tv came of age, or a combination of the two.

But now there is too much for me to keep up with and I’ve started letting tv shows go. It’s weirdly painful. I do develop affection for these characters. I’m having a hard time letting go of White Collar for instance, because I adore all four of the main characters, Pete and Neal, Elizabeth and Mozzie.

So far I’ve deleted The Walking Dead (disappointing use of my beloved zombies), The Firm, and A Gifted Man.

I am thrilled, by the way, that American Idol is finally letting us see more of group night. I have always loved the snippets they used to show and was dying, dying, DYING to see more group routines, and the whole routines, and finally they are giving us that.

  1. I’m just popping in to let you know I have been reading and enjoying your posts but have just been a slacker about commenting to tell you so. Please don’t revoke my SH fan card!

  2. I still read your posts also, but lots has been happening lately with my life: grand-nieces/nephews visits, etc. Also, I was contacted by an acquisition editor who read one of my short stories online. Had to do some editing/proof-reading on one of my novels to submit. It made me realize how much I MISS writing/editing.

    At any rate, I only have a couple hours at night for TV, and usually try to choose a good movie via Netflix. I wonder if I’m missing out on the regular TV programming, but right now, just too busy.

    P.S. Can’t wait to read your book when it’s published!

  3. You guys are so nice. You don’t need to feel obligated to respond ever. Especially when I’m being particularly self-centered in my posts!

    Cara, that is SO EXCITING. CONGRATULATIONS!! You have to keep us up to date!!!!!!!
