Tomorrow the final season of LOST comes out on dvd. Now that I've had a few months to ruminate on the ending of one of the best shows ever, I've got something important to say: DON'T LEAVE ME!!!!!

There is hardly anything left to watch on tv. Seriously, I am sad. I've never been a big time viewer, but there are usually a few shows that I really look forward to watching. Now, I'm down to two scripted shows to watch. There are a few "reality" shows I like, but I need some well written dramas and comedies to entertain me. Where have all the good shows gone?

My solution is to start watching old shows that I missed when they were first aired. If anyone has ANY suggestions, toss them my way. All I ask is that they have at least one redeeming quality... I don't even care what it is. If it's the best lit show ever, I'll watch. Great costumes, I'll watch. Brilliant theme song, I'll watch. Quirky premise, I'll watch. Best car chases, I'll watch. Really, just anything interesting, I'll watch. All of a sudden I hear Sting singing "I want my MTV." I really need something to watch.

  1. Hmmm... maybe you should start watching Castle. I mean, it's cheesy, yesh*, but it's a good funny/lighthearted crime show, and I LOVE it. Castle is a mystey writer and some criminal starts killing like the bad guy in his book so the detectives consult with him, and one thing leads to another, and he ends up working with the police to solve crimes. Unlike Bones, though, he works PURELY in fiction, so he comes up with all these crazy theories... it's so great. Also, Castle was the evil priest guy on Buffy.

    *That was originally supposed to say "yeah," but sometimes the awesomest things we do happen by mistake... so I left it.
