I understand there’s a reason why most TV shows take a break during the summer months, there’s so much more to do during the summer than to sit around and watch TV. However, I still find myself saddened by a number of TV shows I must wait until the fall to watch or to never be aired again. So I’ve stocked the TiVo full of reruns so I can act as though Tuesday night at 7 p.m. I will be graced by the presence of both Lorelai and Rory Gilmore, in utter desperation that my attempts to watch each episode over and over again will somehow revive the show and they’ll miraculously show up this fall on Tuesday nights! What’s even more comical is the fact that I own every season but I still don’t have the heart to take them off my TiVo, so instead I save season 7 (this last season), and then delete off the other episodes as they’re recorded.
So my summer TiVo looks like this:
Bunches and bunches of both Gilmore Girls and The Office
Last Comic Standing
A few episodes of House and Scrubs
20/20 (which usually ends up deleted without watching it unless it has an extremely catchy title such as an one on one interview with Steve Carell or the ultimate secret to becoming rich)
Numerous HGTV shows
A couple new prospects I’m still testing the waters with (Traveler, On the Lot, and Dora the Explorer)
Movies (I’ll probably never get around to watching)
And a Doodlebop here… and Backyardigans there..
