Television Shows

Television was a fantastic invention. It lets people learn, it lets people relax, and most of all, it lets people sit infront of their television, watching television. In my case, that’s sitting infront of my computer, watching television shows.

For the record, I do actually watch shows on television.

However, I do watch many shows. For instance, the better part of my afternoon yesterday was spent catching up on 30 rock

Here is my list of my favourite shows, in a particular order. That order happens to be that the ones I enjoy the most are at the top

-How I Met Your Mother= The Big Bang Theory

-Burn Notice

-30 Rock

Thats about it. For shows that are currently playing. Now, why do I enjoy these shows? I am quite glad you asked, or didn’t ask. I asked so I could have something to write about.

how i met your mother

No those un-capitalized letters were not a mistake. That’s how it’s shown in their opening title. Deal with it.

Have we dealt with it yet?


how i met your mother is great. A lot of people don’t enjoy it, but it be honest, it plus the big bang theory make mondays one of my favourite days of the week. It’s funny. It’s a romantic comedy as well. Yes yes, ridicule me all you want but romantic comedies are awesome. However, the award here for why this is one of my favourite shows undoubtedly goes towards Barney. Barney Stinson. Neil Patrick Harris. First of all, it’s played by freaking Neil Patrick Harris. Come on. If you don’t like him, I am so sorry. You suck, by the way. He’s everything a man could want to be and then some. Except that NPH is actually gay, but that’s another story for another time.

To sum it up- Neil Patrick Harris is in this.

The Big Bang Theory

I love nerd shows. I really do. It gives me something to relate to. Now I’m not saying I’m a theoretical physicist, but I can relate and understand the stuff dealing with the stuff that doesn’t require real intellectual talent, but more a knowledge of geek culture.  The MVP of this show is undoubtedly Sheldon. Although he’s a narcissist, Sheldon just symbolizes everything that’s right with this world. Except for you know, being anti-social. But all in all, it’s a great show if you’re a geek, and even if you’re not, I’m sure you could enjoy some rock paper scissors lizard spock every now and then.

Burn Notice

The reason that this isn’t up there with himym and the big bang theory is simply because it has breaks during its run time. Also it doesn’t show where I live on TV (gosh darned Canada). This show is not only a break from my other shows, it is super-awesome BADASS. Yes, completely freaking badass. Don’t watch this show and say you don’t like Michael Westen cause he is a BADASS. Everytime I watch this show it gives me a rush, makes me feel awesomer than I actually am. Michael Westen obviously gets the best character award.

30 Rock

This show is great. I love it. It’s funny, happy, and just a pleasure to watch. I love shows that make me happy, and what do you know, this show makes me happy! There are sad shows, dark shows, shows that make you think. But 30 rock is a happy show. These are the best kind. Favourite character award here goes to Liz. Yeah, I mean, tracy and jack are great, but liz is just awesome. She reminds me of me a bit, someone who eats a lot (suprisingly, I am underweight), enjoys geek culture, and everything. Except she’s a woman. But yeah. Awesome.

To sum up-makes me happy. is funny.

There are 2 types of shows I enjoy the most. Badass shows, and shows that make me happy. 30 Rock, how i met your mother, and the big bang theory fall into the happy section, while Burn Notice is just extremely epic. I love it.

So yeah, that’s a nice little summary of what TV shows I enjoy and why I enjoy them. For shows like 30 Rock and Burn notice, I was finding it hard to describe why I enjoy them. But there’s one reason here for them, and all of them.

They’re Awesome.
