Whodunnit is a murder mystery reality competition. Thirteen contestants put their investigative skills to the test each week to solve a series of puzzling murders. As they uncover evidence, they'll ultimately reveal the murderer among them. Think Clue meets The Haunted Mansion. The winner will receive $250,000. It's really cheesy, but I like it.
Whose Line Is It Anyway? is a revamp of one of my favorite sketch comedy shows. Returning cast members Ryan Stiles, Wayne Brady and Colin Mochrie, along with a celebrity guest, are put through a series of spontaneous improv games prompted by random ideas from the studio audience. I watched the British version. I watched the original US version. Now, I'm watching it again. After work, it's great to unwind with Whose Line because it's super silly and hilarious.
Project Runway is one of my favorite reality shows. If you haven't seen it, it focuses on fashion design. Season 12 kicked off last week. This season, Tim Gunn is on the runway and will be able to save one of the designer's from elimination. I like this new twist because sometimes the judges send the wrong designer home.
Big Brother is my all-time favorite reality show. I've seen every single season. It's a drama filled hot mess which is why I keep watching. A large group of people live together in a house for the entire summer. They're completely cut off from the outside world. Contestants get eliminated each week, and the last one standing gets half a million dollars.
The Goodwin Games was a mid-season replacement on Fox. This sitcom tells the story of three grown siblings who return home after their father dies. In order to inherit his millions, they have to play a series of games he devised to help bring them closer together. There's currently only seven episodes. There's still no word on whether this show will be renewed. I really hope so. It's so funny, and the entire cast is great. I really enjoyed it.
Pretty Little Liars is so stupid. It's the show I love to hate. The premise of the show goes something like this. A girl is murdered. Her four closest friends are suspects. There's someone named "A" who keeps threatening the girls. "A" is probably the murderer. People continue to die. The girls continue to be suspects because they do a lot of dumb shit. I yell at the tv a lot. I mostly continue to watch because the girls are pretty and have great clothes.
Rizzoli & Isles is a crime drama starring Angie Harmon as police detective Jane Rizzoli and Sasha Alexander as chief medical examiner Maura Isles. First off, I love Angie Harmon. I'd love to be her when I grow up. Secondly, it's great watching a show with two female leads. The show has great writing and an even better cast.
True Blood is one of the few shows that can pull off being both sexy and funny. The cast is full of hot actors, both male and female. There's blood, sex and violence. But what else can you expect from a show filled with vamps, wolves, faeries, shifters, and witches? This season isn't my favorite, but it's been improving with each episode.
Dexter, in its final season, is one of the best premium cable dramas out there. Simply put, Dexter is about a serial killer who murders bad people. This is the only show that almost makes me physically ill. Not because it's gross, but because it is so darn suspenseful... I am on the edge of my seat every single time I watch.
Last but not least, we have the two shows I've been slowly catching up on in marathon sessions.
Breaking Bad is my husband's all-time favorite show. He's been dying for me to watch, so I finally caved. A chemistry teacher finds out he has terminal cancer. In order to leave money for his family, he starts producing and selling meth. A lot of people told me it started off slow. I have to disagree. I was hooked from the very first scene. This show is exceptional. I finally get why everyone loves it so much. I hope to catch up before the final season starts next month.
Friday Night Lights is another show I've always heard great things about. Football is like religion in the south. Simply put, it's a way of life. I knew I'd like this show. It was just making the time to start it. I'm only four or five episodes in, but I can already see that it's going to be great. And, in case you're wondering, I'm already in love with Tim Riggins.
We finally ditched cable tv a couple months back. It was a little weird not having a DVR at first, but we quickly adjusted. We currently subscribe to Netflix and Hulu Plus. If I can't find what I need there, I start searching. So far, I haven't missed out on any of my shows.
