Sheila's rantings, most likely of no interest, on TV, movies, books, music, etc.

I live in Seattle, am married, have two cats (one is a genius, the other insane), and am a mild-mannered copy editor by day. I love horseback riding, coffee, reading, TV, movies, music, playing (too much) World of Warcraft, and lying on the couch. This isn't a personal blog, but rather a place for me to vent about movies, TV shows, books, music, etc. Thanks for checking in!

Shows That I Hear Are Good But I Don't Watch

1. Gray's Anatomy
2. Everwood
3. Smallville
4. Gilmore Girls
5. Arrested Development

What do you think, my kittens? Should I set my DVR?

After Veronica Mars and Lost, my favorite one-hour shows are probably Grey's Anatomy and Everwood, so I would vote "yes" on those two. They are both character-driven, but they aren't that complicated that you will be totally lost.

If you like comedies, there is *nothing* better than AD, so that gets a "yes" vote also. But it can be hard to follow for new viewers b/c a lot of the jokes are based on things that have happened earlier (it's complicated), so you might want to start with getting seasons 1 and 2 on DVD first. You will know after watching the first few eps from S1 if this show is for you b/c it's not for everyone.

Imho, both GG and Smallville have seen better days and are not what they used to be. I would get the first season of each of those shows on DVD and wouldn't bother with the current season until you've worked your way through the DVDs.

cj, thanks for the great advice! I appreciate it. (And I admit that the sole reason I'm interested in Smallville is because of a certain vampire named Spike...)
