I like legal thrillers - The Good Wife and Harry's Law. I'm sticking with 2 1/2 Men, Mike & Molly, Bing Bang Theory and I get my news from Chelsea Lately.

From the new shows this year, so far only Two Broke Girls and Whitney have won my heart.

the amazing race used to be one of my very favorite shows. this season, when it comes on i watch it, but no longer identify with contestants like i did in the past. i have little empathy for the couples and their frequent mean-spirited bickering. they also often seem indifferent to where they are in the world, and at times, culturally insensitive.

this season my vote for the winning team goes to the surfer guys. they've got the right stuff to go all the way. they also possess the social skills that i have found to be so lacking in general in this season's teams.

watching tonight--still loving to "travel" around the world with the show....:)

Oh my. Love Amazing Race, and was it ever racy tonight! Delayed by football by an hour.

No way, no how would I dress up in a speedo and pose with weightlifters! Kudos to those with the courage!

Cringing is the word, Vit. Now, I could do the Legoland ride. Just not in a speedo!

We had to wear them as uniforms when I taught swimming and lifeguarded in Canada. Not much left to the imagination.

love boardwalk empire, true blood, and game of thrones.

with boardwalk empire, i wonder how many people get all of the little irish references of the time: the black and tans, the failed uprising, having no stomach for "the troubles", going to confession with the real possibility of damnation, etc...

,
my dad was born during that period, and my grandfather- a decorated wwi vet, would have experienced a lot of what is seen in the show.

lol, it's not far from how i was raised.

Season 4 of True Blood was too all over the place. if they don't change it up for season 5 I may stop watching. The first three seasons were great.
