Layman State of Television 2006: SUNDAYS

Yah yah, i know. I've been extraordinarily freaking lame updating lately. Blogging is kinda like working out, I've discovered: easy to do when you're doing it, hard to keep up with once you stop.

Anyway, I intended to blog about this a while ago, when I had my heart broken by the Season Three finale of Nip/Tuck, but then I got so sickened and disgusted I just gave up halfway through.

But, I figure, with a new year upon us, it's time to take stock in what's worth watching and what's not on the tube. Of course, you have a right to your own opinion, but keep in mind only I am correct.

I've pretty much given up on TV on Sunday.

Simpsons have not made me laugh in a long time, but I would not go as far as to urge Fox to pull the plug. It's weird, somehow; the Simpsons I thought were lame 4 years ago seem kinda funny now. I'm hoping someday I'll gain an appreciatation for the current batch of Simpsons currently coming out, but it won't be anytime soon.

Family Guy I think is funny, though hit and miss, and if it's on I'll watch it and usually get a laugh. However, for some reason it's not a show I go out of my way to see.

Desperate Housewives I've given up on. It seemed okay last season, entertaining enough, but it's really devolved into lame, predictable shit, and not only that, you'd be hard-pressed to find a more consistently man-hating show on TV. Of course, most sitcoms in the last 15 or 20 years are pretty solidly man-hating. Anyway, I quit watching it one week, and never looked back.

Law and Order, Criminal Intent is a show I've never gotten into. I love the other L&Os dearly, but by the time this one rolled around, I didn't need another addiction, so I've never watched it. And I like Vincent D'nofrio enough. Eh. Maybe someday.

That's pretty much the ony stuff on my radar on Sunday nights, and I'm not a regular viewer of any of it. I wouldn't watch stupid Grey's Anatomy if I my life depended on it. In fact, I don't watch medical shows at all, because they only have two plots: Somebody gets sick and they either get better, or they die. And half the time they get sick because they are old. I don't particularly give a crap about sick people, or old people, or relationships between medical staffs, so I avoid medical shows like the plague (HA!-- Get it?!)

The winner:

Er, a tie between Simpsons and Family Guy, but sort of a lackluster one. Or, maybe Family Guy gets a slight edge, just 'cause it occationally makes me laugh.

A Sunday without the Simpson is no Sunday, it is a day to just lay down a rest.
