I Love Addictive Television

It's true, I do. I'm not ashamed.

I'm not so much into procedural shows (though I like a few), reality tv (except for American Idol...totally addictive), or the Discovery Channel (I'm female, people). Sit-coms ceased to be funny a long time ago. No, I like the kind of tv show that you have to have a certain relationship with, that you have to remember characters and events. The kind of show with meaty characterization, loads of drama, and cliffhangers. Cliffhangers are an absolute must.

So my new little poll is what is the most addictive tv show. I put a few on there I haven't seen because I know they have fans. I also included my favorites. Not all of these are on the air anymore, but addiction is most fully realized when you watch the DVDs don't you know it?

So if you're reading this in your reader please pop over for a visit and have a vote. Yes this is all inspired by my recent addiction to LOST.

Please remember to vote for the show you do not want to miss! Not necessarily the one with the most artistic merit.

Okay, that was pretty easy because I don't watch most of those shows. Felicity is hard to vote on. I was one of those who left the show when she chopped the locks! (P.S. in case this post sounds like I voted for Felicity, I didn't.)

Have you seen Numb3rs? Most of them are good for the whole family.

Battlestar is amazing!! Love it!!!

Megan, that's so mysterious! But seriously, sophomore year the second half was the best! When she got together with Ben for real. It's funny because it's an addictive show only in all the soapy twists and turns in the relationships...not quite as high concept as LOST! I haven't. But thanks for adding another one to get addicted to. :)

Vader's Mom...I've never watched Battlestar, but I want to!

I can't believe no one has voted for 24 or LOST yet!!!

I watch American Idol and Grey's Anatomy some, but I could easily miss them. My favorites are police dramas - like the Law & Orders, CSI's, etc. Definitely can't miss!

I Love Grey's Anatomy and certainly don't want to miss them, but to me addiction is more than that. We watched season 1 and 2 of LOST on DVD (so we were slow to get on the bandwagon)-- the nano pause that would have been a commercial break during regular season caused my husband and I to feel stress. A cliffhanger before every commercial is definitely feeding the addiction frenzy. We stayed up until 5 am on a work day because the burning need to watch just one more episode would turn into the whole disc!!
