Thursday Thirteen #6

Since I've been slacking off for over two weeks now, I figured I would post my 13 favourite shows - Yup! Because that's all I've been doing while I should have been writing! :)

Thirteen of my Favourite - for my American friends - favorite ;) shows:

1…. Crossing Jordan. I almost couldn't decide what to start with, but Crossing Jordan doesn't come on DVD - so if you miss an episode you miss it. That's why it made it to number one!

2.... CSI Las Vegas. I don't care how many new versions they come up with. Nobody replaces the original team. I love Grissom and hate Fellatio (That's what my husband and I call Horacio) We both equally hate him.

3.... Gilmore Girls. I love that they never stop talking - the same reason that my husband can't stand the show. Did you know that a regular script for GG is twice as long as any other script for any other 1 hour show? And the maid is different in every single episode? I'm filled with useless facts about GG.

4.... NCIS. Love it! I don't know what it is... I think it might just be that the characters are depicted so relaxed and normal, I would even say unprofessional... which in any other company would be a no no.

5.... News Radio. Does anyone remember this show? I have a deep down dirty secret love for Joe Rogan - don't ask! I don't know what it is! When my husband watches UFC and I just hear Joe's voice I smile. Can't help it.

6.... Criminal Minds. Shemar Moore... yum! I have loved him since YR. I hate soap opera's... but I would watch it just for him. Did I say yum?

7.... Bones. Oh my God! I almost forgot this show! HOW? It's one of the one's I never forget to watch. I hated David Boreanaz in Angel. But now on Bones, as an agent.... well, lets just say a lot of my characters that are agents start with him in my mind.

8.... House. This and CSI are probably the only show that my husband and I agree on, so it had to make it on my list.

9.... Law and Order. Dear God... how long have I been watching this show?

10.... Law and Order - Criminal Intent. I can't help it! I'm a forever fan of all Law and Order's!

11.... Law and Order - Special Victims Unit. I usually hate spin off or continued type shows, but Special Victims I probably like better than the original show and Criminal Intent.

12.... Las Vegas. I don't know why! I think it has a little to do with the character's being so beautiful - it's mesmerizing!

13.... The Daily Show and The Colbert Report. This one's a twofer, because although I watch it because I love the Colbert Report, I like John Stewart too. I can't stand Canadian politics! But give me American politics and I'm glued to the screen. Plus, I find Stephen Colbert hilarious in the most stupid, yet brilliant ways!

Wow! I thought it would be hard to think up of 13 shows that I watch since I tend to replace the TV with a good book... but clearly I was true to my word about getting nothing accomplished in the last two weeks! Yikes... that's a lot of TV! What are some of your favourite shows?

Wylie Kinson said...

Can you BELIEVE this is the final TT? I'm only sorry I got started so late in the game. Oh well.

The only one on your list I watch is HOUSE. I'd have to add LOST, Gray's Anatomy (sometimes), Dexter, Nip/Tuck, and The Sopranos.

Angela/SciFiChick said...

I used to love News Radio! I was so upset when Phil Hartman was killed by his psycho wife. That man was a comedic genius.

Annie said...

I'm not much of a TV person. The only two shows I make a point to watch every week is "Lost" and "Survivor".

Happy TT, Vicky!

Vicky said...

Wylie - I know! I just started!

Angela - I didn't even find out about that till like 2 weeks ago! How could that be? It was the episode where Phil Hartman had already died, so the show started -'can't believe he had a heart attack.' And I was like what? They can't do that... Can they? So I called my husband in a panic! And he calmly explained what happened. How could I have not known?

Annie - I didn't used to be either, until I needed to find an excuse to hide from my laptop. :)

Anonymous said...

I don't watch much TV either, but I enjoyed reading your list! I am fond of Dexter, however. :)

Happy TT! Dang, I hate this is the final one, don't you?

Vicky said...

TL - Yeah it is sad, but I might still continue it... might. I'm starting to think that this is meant to be... because ever since blogging I haven't been writing!

Amy Ruttan said...

Blogger ate my comment. GRRRR.

Me watch Corner Gas, Degrassi, Men in Trees, Amazing Race All Stars.

Me had something funny and witty to say, but me angry like Hulk that blogger ate comment. GRRRRR.

Vicky said...

Amy - I hate that! I can't tell you how many times I write something brilliant ;) and then it gets eaten up! Hate it! Frustrating!

I'm sure it was very funny and witty!

Joely Sue Burkhart said...

I'd add American Idol and Survivor to your list and lose the Law and Order ones. Happy last TT. :-(

Christine said...

I love News Radio too! Phil Hartman was so freaking funny on this show!

My dad has been trying to get me to watch NCIS for a while. I just can't add another TV show to my list. However, I bought him season one one DVD for Christmas so I'm going to borrow it. :)

JAM said...

I see that you live in Canada. If you ever make it to Florida, you can stay with my family. My wife loves and watches all of these except News Radio. Don't see it on tv much anymore.

You can vacation and not miss one of your shows. Lovely Wife is the Queen of the DVR and I've seen electronic circuit cards less complex than her tv taping schedule.

I'm a freak, I don't watch much TV. I tend to watch the sci-fi stuff and Discovery Scienc.

Cool list.

Rene said...

I don't watch too many shows. I LOVE House. I just bought the first two season on DVD.

Susan Helene Gottfried said...

Hey, Vicky! Thanks for visiting me at West of Mars -- hope it won't be the last time.

now, turn off the TV and stop slacking! (that's a joke. You have some good stuff on that list)

Alyssa Goodnight said...

I totally agree on CSI Las Vegas. I actually do like CSI New York though--although they make the city look so grim and murky.

I have GOT to watch The Gilmore Girls. I think I'm the only one in America missing it.

alisonwonderland said...

the only thing i've been watching lately is The Amazing Race, but in the not-too-distant past i was a big fan of #2 and #11. i keep thinking of checking out #6 too. maybe you'll have enticed me back to the TV.

happy thursday! thanks for stopping by!

Tink said...

I love CSI, NCIS and Bones! Great list. Let's hope it's not the final one. *fingers crossed*
Thanks for visiting my picture TT.

Vicky said...

Thanks for visiting everyone! And happy TV watching! (Not for me of course - I need to stop!) Maybe I should join a program or something. Ah, we'll see.

Hope everyone had a great 'maybe not so final' final TT!

Michelle said...

OK - I swear I commented on this but I don't see my link or comment. LOL - I'm losing it. I love Gilmore Girls but haven't been able to watch it this season, mostly because I've been really busy but also because they ticked me off by getting Lorelei back with Chris. Sheesh.

Vicky said...

Ohhhhh... Michelle! You weren't missing much at the beginning, but now Chris and Lorelie are over! You need to watch! :)
