Recently, I tried to tell someone what kinds of TV shows I like. I was stumped. What do my favorites have in common?
Orange is the New Black
The Mindy Project
Those are current shows I enjoy, though I am behind on 3 of them.
Other favorites include:
I'm eclectic; it's true. But I did find a common thread among all but Project Runway.
I like well-written TV. Back when Shonda wrote for Grey's, I even kept up with the writers' blog. Whether the writing makes me laugh or cry or think, these shows all include some solid dialogue and narration. Only well-written characters come to life enough for me to follow them to other shows (Addison is the reason I watched Private Practice). I started The Mindy Project because I read Mindy's book and it cracked me up. She's a good writer.
I laughed and looked at Corey saying, "Even with television, I am a book nerd."
So if you have a show suggestion, lay it on me. Especially if it is on Netflix. I have learned something new about myself and I like it.
What about you. What connects the shows or movies you like most?
