Book Break: What Are You Watching?
Tuesday January 24, 2012 at 4:42 am |

I just want to take a quick break from the book talk and find out what everybody out there is watching.  I have to say I miss the days of my youth when I always knew what I was watching from 8PM-10PM Mon – Fri.  Do you guys remember when television had a set schedule and they actually stuck to it?  Do you all remember when a show would run for a whole season with minimal hiatuses or breaks?

Nowadays it’s so hard to find a quality program that sticks to the same schedule consistently or doesn’t take fifty-leven breaks throughout the season.  But when I do find a show I love I try to support and tune in regularly.  Below are the shows that is must see tv for me.


1.  The Game:

I was ecstatic when they brought this show back to tv. I started watching the re-runs and fell in love with it.  It was the perfect blend of comedy and drama.  The ladies were beautiful and the men were hot.  I have to admit I’ve been less than impressed with the latest seasons, and I’m kinda pissed that they got rid of Kelly.  But since I did help to fight to get it back, I’m going to hang in there with it and hope the writers can restore it to the show I fell in love with.  The Game airs Tuesdays @ 10pm on BET.


2.  Revenge:

Are you all watching this show?  Me and my mom LOVE it.  The mystery, the cunning, the backstabbing!  I love it all.  These people are rich, entitled, and insane.  And just when you think it can’t get any better…somebody drops a new bomb!  If you haven’t been watching you have to catch up and then start watching regularly…this show is spectacular!  Revenge airs Wednesdays @ 10pm on ABC.

3.  Spartacus: Vengeance:

My oh my!  My best friend got me watching Spartacus: Blood and Sand when it first premiered on Starz and I cannot get enough of this show.  I hope you all are watching this because this show is bloody brilliant.  I can’t even describe the awesomeness that is this show.  I am saddened that Andy Whitfield (the original Spartacus) will not be returning for the third season.  He was diagnosed with cancer and had to pull out.  But he played Spartacus so well and I loved him…and he was beautiful to look at.  See Pic below!  Spartacus: Vengeance airs Fridays @ 10pm on STARZ.



4.  Person of Interest:

My mom got me watching this show.  The concept is pretty interesting.  Finch has built a computer that can predict if a person is in danger.  It spits out a social and the person belonging to that social will either be in danger, or causing the danger.  Finch and Reese work together to try to prevent any harm coming to the person, or prevent them from harming others.  And I love Taraji as Police investigator.  This show usually has some action and Reese is usually kicking some ass…loves it.  Person of Interest airs Thursdays @ 9PM on CBS.

Recent television addition:

Once Upon A Time.  I watched the first two episodes and have the rest taped.  I really need to catch up because the first two shows were intriguing.

The Firm based on the John Grisham novel.  This one is only three episodes in, but so far so good.  I’ll keep watching and see how it goes.

Guilty Pleasures:

My guilty pleasures are all the reality tv shows that I watch.  I probably shouldn’t but really I can’t help it.  They are all so very entertaining.  Reality must see tv:

The Jersey Shore
Love and Hip Hop
Housewives of Atlanta
Teen Mom2
Basketball Wives (Original and LA)

Oldies but Goodies:

A Different World
Living Single
The Cosby Show
The Golden Girls
Boy Meets World
My Wife and Kids
Everybody Hates Chris

So, what are you all watching?

    • Jade Jade says:

      I watch Let’s Stay together too, but I don’t consider it a must see yet. Although it is pretty funny. And I’ve recently gotten into Criminal Minds. I’ll sit and watch the marathons for hours on end.

  2. Evie says:

    I watch The Big Bang Theory, Suburgatory, The Middle, Grey’s Anatomy and the oldies: Friends, Will & Grace, That’ 70s Show, Lost.

  3. Brie says:

    Once Upon a Time is sooo good! I’m jealous that you get to watch the first episode back to back 🙂 That’s pretty much the only show I’m watching, also Grey’s Anatomy because I’ve been watching since season 1, but it’s getting bad…

    • Jade Jade says:

      It is good isn’t it? And I’ve heard a lot of people say that Grey’s Anotomy is not the show it used to be and it isn’t a compliment. I think when shows morph so much it’s time to pull the plug.

  4. I watch very little tv. The only thing I watch right now is Teen Mom 2.

    Revenge looks good.

    • Jade Jade says:

      Revenge is awesome Mrs. Q! You should try and catch up, I promise you’ll be fascinated. And Teen Mom is addictive. I just want to shake some of those girls.

  5. Leah Colson says:

    Gosh, yes, I miss those days of my youth when my TV schedule was set for the week almost permanently. What am I watching now? The Biggest Loser, Modern Family, Survivor, American Idol, The Office, and The Big Bang Theory.

    • Jade Jade says:

      I’ve been watching AI too! I’ve noticed they show less and less of the people who can’t sing now. That was my favorite part b/c it was so funny.

  6. Brenda says:

    I love Revenge and Once Upon a Time as well as Body of Proof and Person of Interest. I also can’t seem to get enough of Unforgettable. But hands down Revenge is my favorite new show of this year… I look forward to it each and every week!

    • Jade Jade says:

      Yes! Another Revenge fan! My mom watches Body of Proof too. I’ve seena few episodes with her, but it’s not must see for me. The other shows you mentioned definitely are though.

  7. Oooo fab question!

    Most of what I love is the 1 hour dramas.

    Hart of Dixie
    Hawaii Five-O
    Up All Night
    New Girl
    Are you there, Chelsea?
    Last Man Standing
    Big Bang Theory
    Person’s of Interest
    Gifted Man
    Once Upon a Time

    I reallllllly want to try The Game again. But I want to start from the beginning.

    • Jade Jade says:

      The first three seasons of The Game were AWESOME! So yes, I recommend starting there to understand all that’s going on now. Fair warning though, you’ll probably like the first three seasons way better than the episodes now.

  8. I forgot
    Hot in Cleveland
    Terra Nova

  9. Missie says:

    I don’t watch much TV, but me and my mom are addicted to REVENGE!!! Seriously. I also love The Walking Dead, Sons of Anarchy, and Game of Thrones. Can’t wait till they are back on. 🙂

    • Jade Jade says:

      Oooh Game of Thrones I do love as well and can’t wait for the next season. I missed it when it was on the first time. So I had to catch the re-runs and I’m glad I did. Season Two can’t come fast enough.

  10. Oh, I have a lot to check out! I didn’t even know about half of them. But YES I’m watching Revenge! And I really love it too. It’s so… different from most. I’m also newly addicted to Once Upon a Time! Both of these JUST started showing two weeks ago over here, so I’m new to them, but oh are they good. Then I’m also watching The Big Bang Theory as well as How I Met Your Mother for my daily dose of comedy. 😉

    • Jade Jade says:

      Better late than never Bex! I’m glad it finally reached your country! It’s an amazing show, so I think you’re going to really get into it.

  11. Lena says:

    The Game ranks high for me as well. I also like T.I. and Tiny, Criminal Minds, Law and Order SVU and The Closer. And I think Let’s Stay Together is okay too.

    Check your email Jade, I sent you something. 🙂

  12. Oh my gosh, you watch Revenge with your mom too???? That is the biggest, coolest, most awesomely funny coincidence EVER because I do the exact same thing!! x) I think that’s the only show my mom and I actually have in common — it’s just SO intensely cool, and we kind of have a girls’ night tradition for it LOL!

    The only other TV shows I watch regularly are The Vampire Diaries and The Secret Circle! (I spend too much time drowning in blogging and books LOL!) But I watch How I Met Your Mother sometimes and I really want to get into Once Upon a Time too — I’ve just heard so many cool things about it!

    Amazing list, Jade! <3 Isn't television just an awesome invention? 😉

    • Jade Jade says:

      Yes me and Mom. I’m glad to know I’m not the only one hanging out with my mom in front of the tv. We have fun with these shows though. I’m sure you and your mom do too.

  13. Lindsey says:

    I hate to be the bearer of bad news. But Andy Whitfield actually died of cancer in September. 🙁

  14. Ahhh! Love this post.

    I can’t wait to watch The Game. I’ve got them recorded but haven’t been home yet to catch up.

    I watch:

    The Game
    Criminal Minds
    Once Upon a Time
    New Girl
    The Vampire Diaries

    Real Housewives of Atlanta

    I really don’t watch House and Glee like I used to but they are recorded so I’ll get to them one day.

    I added Revenge and I’m going to check and see if I can find Spartacus so I can watch it from the beginning.

  15. Jade says:

    OMG, I hope you love it!!!! Spartacus was just, I can’t describe, there are no words.

    The first season is Spartacus: Blood and Sand
    The second is a prequal and is Spartacus: Gods of the Arena
    The new season is coming up which is Spartacus: Vengeance

    If you do watch let me know how you like them.
