Not a TV Junkie. Or Am I in Denial?

Cloudy Sky
So, what are the TV shows you're looking forward to the most this fall? I'm only looking forward to Lost and Grey's Anatomy. Sure I watch more than just two shows but I've taken shows like Law & Order and CSI for granted. They always return.
I don't think I'm a TV junkie because I don't care about missing any of the shows I watch. If I missed it then I missed it. I won't try downloading the episode I missed from a torrent site or anything. Even if I learned later that a main character in the show was killed in the episode I missed, I'd just acknowledge it and that's about it.
That might not apply for Lost and Grey's Anatomy, though. But I might be wrong. I mean, if Troy didn't try so hard to keep up with those two shows by taping it if we know we're going to miss it or download it if we missed it without taping it, I probably wouldn't care either.
TV has never been a big part of my life. Before the Internet, I'd rather spend my time daydreaming about the day when I made my escape than watching TV. And once I got an Internet connection at home, I'd rather be online than watching TV. That still applies today.
Bottom line is, I'm not a TV junkie because TV doesn't rule my life. I won't adjust my life to fit TV timetable. But then again, I rarely can remember when the TV shows I watch are on and on what channel.
No, scratch that. I'm not a TV junkie because remembering the showtimes and all the channels is simply Too. Much. Work.

    My “Must See” list right now con­sists of (in no par­tic­u­lar order) Pris­on Break, The Office, Lost, Crim­i­nal Minds, Num­b3rs, and Scrubs.
    I’m also look­ing for­ward to Gilmore Girls, and I’m inter­est­ed in Heroes and Six Degrees (J.J. Abrams’ new show). I caught the pre­miere of Kid­napped and it also seems pret­ty high-qual­i­ty.
    I’ve also been enjoy­ing Eureka, Psy­ch, and Monk.

    Oh, by the way, I total­ly agree with your last two para­graphs. For­tu­nate­ly, the inter­net makes TV sched­ules total­ly irrel­e­vant, which means I watch TV only on my own sched­ule. I don’t even know what chan­nel some of my favorite shows are on.

    Heroes looks like it might be inter­est­ing. I’ve nev­er heard of Six Degrees before but it sounds inter­est­ing as well. Not sure if any Cana­di­an TV sta­tions will syn­di­cate it, though. I hope they will.

    Watch­ing TV can be great, but I’m Sooooo! sick of repeats. They adver­tise new episodes but end up being repeats. For all the mon­ey the TV sta­tions make you would think they could afford to keep the new episodes on until the end of the sea­son. (not cut them off halfway through.)
