Favorite Tv Shows

So as I've probably mentioned a bunch already the tv is on a lot in our house, at least when the man's home.  He loves to watch tv, where as I can take or leave it.  It's not often I find shows that hold my attention.

While he remains engrossed in tv I'm usually daydreaming of things I wish we were doing instead.  Though over the past few years I have found five shows I really like.  So much so they are even set to tape on the dvr.  In no particular order the five shows are....

Person of Interest -  Absolutely awesome writing and a great cast. A drama, thriller and mystery all wrapped in one. It's about a billionaire software genius Finch who creates a machine for the government that is designed to detect acts of terror before they can happen, by monitoring the entire world through every cell phone, email and surveillance camera. Finch discovered that the machine sees everything, potential terrorist acts and violent crimes that involve ordinary people. When the government considered violent crimes between normal people irrelevant, Finch built a back door into the system that gives him the social security number of a person involved in a future violent crime so he could act. Partnered with two ex CIA agents, a detective and mystery woman of sorts they work in secret to prevent violent crimes before they can happen.  As the show progresses the topic of artificial intelligence also becomes a big part of the storyline. CBS Tuesdays 10pm

Revenge -  This show is a drama yet also mystery of sorts.  The story lines keep you guessing and tend to leave one on the edge of their seat.  Basically the daughter of a framed executive makes it her mission to infiltrate upper Hamptons society and exact revenge on the people who set her father up.  The main character Emily is basically a highly trained operative of sorts even though she has nothing to do with that line of work.  And the characters that surround her are anything but boring. ABC Sundays 10pm

NCIS Los Angeles - Another version of the CSI series that seems to saturate tv but this one has got not only great writing but incredible cast chemistry.  While it would be considered a drama the show also incorporates a nice touch of humor into it as well.  The Naval Criminal Investigation Service's Office of Special Projects takes on the undercover work and the hard to crack cases in LA. And an underlying romantic story between two of the main characters doesn't hurt either.  Plus did I mention Chris O'Donnell and Eric Christian, love a show with good looking men who can act. CBS Mondays 10pm

Under The Dome - With Stephen King behind this show expect the unexpected and some sci fi twists. Another great cast that is filled with all kinds of character types though don't get to fond of anyone of the show has a way of changing characters quickly. An invisible and mysterious force field descends upon a small fictional town in the United States, trapping residents inside, cut off from the rest of civilization. The trapped townsfolk must discover the secrets and purpose of the "dome" and its origins, while coming to learn more than they ever knew about each other.  The show only airs during the summer.  CBS Mondays 10pm

Nurse Jackie -  This is a comedy and drama all rolled into one.  A drug addicted nurse struggles to find a balance between the demands of her frenetic job at a New York City hospital and an array of personal dramas. If you ever wondered what life for an addict or living with one is like this is a show that gives a gritty, raw view of that world.  Great writing and a quirky cast makes this show addicting to watch.  Showtime Sundays 9pm

NCIS LA and Nurse Jackie started in 2009, Person of Interest and Revenge 2011, Under the Dome 2013.  It's worth going back and watching these series from the beginning.  Although not sure its necessary for NCIS LA but for the others it is.  

And what I think tv also needs is Seinfeld back. Since the show retired haven't found a comedy that comes even close to generating the laughs of that show.

Of course would always love to hear what everyone else is watching, and what others favorite shows are as well!
