Latest TV Addiction: NashvillePosted: July 3, 2013
One of the things that I’ve always wanted is for Ryan and I to have a show that we watch together. Truthfully, we have pretty opposite tastes when it comes to most things- TV, movies and music. You know, the important things in a relationship. Plus, sports are ALWAYS on and they overlap and Ryan likes a team from just about every major sport. Which doesn’t leave a lot of time for regular TV watching.
A long time ago, I started recording all of the episodes of Nashville. Mostly because Big Mama and BooMama talked about it all the time. But some reason, I never really got around to watching it/into it. However, when Ryan was in Chicago a few weeks ago, I started watching. And kept watching and watching. Then he returned and it was the NBA playoffs and Nashville got pushed to the back burner. But 6 months later, the NBA playoffs are finally over. Can I get a hallelujah?
Because Monday is my day off and I am alone, I watch whatever I have recorded on the DVR that I know Ryan would absolutely rather die that watch- Keeping Up With The Kardashians and Real Housewives of New Jersey being the primary ones. However, this Monday when he got home, I was folding laundry and asked if I could watch Nashville and he said he didn’t care. (The Braves weren’t playing that night.) (And no, we don’t have the kind of relationship where I have to ask if I want to watch something on TV, but it’s polite, so I do it anyway.) (Yes, I am an over-explainer.) So I watched 2 episodes and all of a sudden, he was hooked. Actually, we both were.
And despite the fact that we promised we were going to bed early that night, we ended up watching 3 more episodes. I think we have about 7 left before we’re done with the season. For some reason, the DVR didn’t record all of them so there are two that we have to watch online. But I have little doubt that we will be done before the middle of next week.
After that, I want to watch Friday Night Lights. EVERYONE says we would love it. Sarah called me specifically to tell me that we had to watch it. But, that requires us getting my Wii from my parents and a Netflix subscription, so I don’t know how long that will take.
What other TV shows should we get hooked on before football season starts and everything resumes its regular schedule? Connie Britton in the lead is optional.
