Has anyone else noticed that TV is really good right now? In a way it hasn't been good in a long time? Like, for many years, TV (network especially) sucked...except for HBO and Showtime. But now, I can't even keep up with all the shows I want to watch.
My current recommendations:
1. Dork comedies- Happy Endings, New Girl, and The Mindy Project are all great. Hilarious characters and lots of heart. I finally gave in New Girl, despite my weird dislike of Zooey D. I mean, I'm over her "I am so dorky, I'm cute" persona. I've reconsidered though...it's the least I can do for the star of one of my fav movies of all time, "All the Real Girls."
Happy Endings nails the making-fun-of-hipsters genre:
2. Scandalous shows- Just finished season 1 of Revenge. Pretty good. Also, Scandal is amazing. I adore the entire cast, especially Kerry Washington.
3. Shows with the word "diaries" in their title. I am still a total sucker for the ridiculous love triangle of Elena, Damon, and Stefan on the Vampire Diaries. Also, finally watched the pilot for The Carrie Diaries. I've only seen one episode, but I was very impressed. One thing I really appreciate is that they total nail the experience of losing your mother when you're young. My only beef is that young Carrie seems so much more likable that old Carrie.
Grieving moments lost:
4. GIRLS! GIRLS! GIRLS! Love it, Love Lena Dunham.
You smoked crack!...
