I know one of the blogosphere mottos is "blog early, blog often," so I'm going to do my best to make sure there's not a five-day lag again any time soon... Now back to regularly scheduled programming.
Here, for all 12 of you who read Urban Mamas, I freely admit that I'm pretty much a TV-holic. Don't get me wrong, thanks to my TiVo, I don't have to give up Schmoop time to catch my favorite shows. The problem is, unlike many of my friends and family, I keep adding new shows to my schedule every season. Have you ever seen Homer hold up a pennant for "Midseason Replacements"? The husband jokes that that's me -- checking out all the comedies and dramas that seem promising. He, meanwhile, is happy with the odd Must-See TV comedy (mostly "Friends" and "Scrubs"), Comedy Central offerings like "The Daily Show," "Reno 911" and "Chapelle's Show." Plus, we ask friends with HBO on Demand to tape its best original movies and "Six Feet Under." But that's just the husband. I watch many, many more shows. After the Schmoop falls asleep, I have a TiVo full of recorded episodes to pick each night. I'm the person who can get nearly every "pink" question at Trivial Pursuit correct. Add my sister, who is 12 years older, to the game, and we can answer all of them right. What can I say, all four of us siblings are huge TV and movie freaks. I guess it's a good thing I have a job that allows me to expense movie tickets and get free DVDs.
So, don't hate me for loving TV, but please pray that my TiVo doesn't fail us. I should say, that I do have standards. Even I didn't watch "Coupling," but each year I find at least one show that makes its way onto my TiVo's Season Pass Manager. Well, gotta go. Don't want to miss the end of "InStyle Celebrity Weddings."
