Television: Shows I'm Currently Watching

Television seasons are so weird now. Shows start and stop at various times so that schedules are staggered. And then there's all the stuff you can stream whenever you want besides. (I recently finished Parks and Rec that way.)

I find it handy to periodically stop and make a list of shows I'm currently involved with. That is: only shows I'm actively watching at this point in time. Like, I watch Elementary and will continue to watch it, but it's not in season. So it won't be on this list.

Shows that are currently airing that I watch include:

  1. Proof
  2. Mr. Robot
  3. Wayward Pines
  4. Jonathan Strange and Mr Norrell
  5. True Detective
  6. Last Week Tonight with John Oliver
Clearly I need more comedy in my life. If anyone has suggestions on that front, I'd love to hear them. I do think comedy is harder to do well than drama. Plus, I find most sitcoms get stale quickly. Though I generally enjoy workplace shows like The Office, 30 Rock, Parks and Rec. And then there was also Community. Basically shows in which the ties are not familial.

What I don't watch is reality television. Ugh. No.

Anyone else digging into these summer shows? Or are you just waiting for your fall favorites to come back?

I haven't been watching anything this summer, but I do want to give Jonathan Strange a try. I have still yet to watch the first season of True Detective. Oh, I did watch the new episodes of Whose Line Is It Anyway! *LOL*

Oh, I'd forgotten Whose Line was coming back! I used to love that show.

I definitely enjoyed the first season of True Detective way more than I'm enjoying this one. But I feel "in it" now, so I'll see it through.
