Have a question? I’d love to hear it, so feel free to email me (mellow1422 [at] aol), friends! Today’s question comes to us from Jamie, who asks…
What’s on your DVR?
Confession: I love TV. No, I love TV. I always have. It started with Sesame Street, back in the days when I was learning the alphabet and The Count was teaching all about numbers. Then I went through my Disney Channel and Nickelodeon phase. Now, friends, I’m referring to the classic heyday of these channels in the ’90s. I watched Kids’ Incorporated and MMC religiously after school (Ryan Gosling, anyone?).
And when we got a DVR a few years ago, I felt like I’d hit the jackpot in Vegas. I now had 100 hours at my disposal to record anything and everything my little pop-culture-loving heart desired. Here’s a little round-up of some of the shows I’m loving these days (and one show that got cancelled too soon…)…
Gossip Girl and Pretty Little Liars are the perfect guilty pleasures. Plus, I can live vicariously through all that Upper East Side drama. But more on my love of Chuck Bass later. 🙂
Mad Men and Pan Am are fantastic period dramas. I’ve always loved shows that span years and years and incorporate the life and culture of the time period into the storylines.
How I Met Your Mother and The Big Bang Theory are just all around feel-good shows. How I Met Your Mother actually inspired Letters To My Future Husband, and who doesn’t love Sheldon Cooper?
And….American Dreams is one of my all-time favorite shows that got cancelled too early! The music. The pop culture. The fashion. Everything. Perfect!
So, friends, it’s your turn to share. What’s primed and ready-to-watch on your DVR right now? What are your favorite new shows? Any old ones you never get tired of (The Brady Bunch is one of mine!)? xoxo
P.P.S. I also have a fun How I Met Your Mother theme week coming up soon! 🙂

OMG! American Dreams was my absolute favorite. I'm still mad they canceled it and left us with a cliff hanger. I want seasons 2 and 3 on DVD 🙁

I want to get the American Dreams soundtrack again…great '60s classics on there! xoxo
My friend records her TV shows on DVD but she rarely has the time to see them all.
Oh my…You were naming some of my old favorites…but most of all Kids Incorporated!
Amber from the blog Nostomanic did the funniest post about Kids Incorporated…You have to check it out:
I loved American Dreams! I was really sad when it was cancelled. Boo!
I don't have a DVR, and when I get married my fiance and I will probably not even bother with cable but current shows I like: House, Parenthood, Big Bang Theory (I watch the reruns On Demand in the morning). I also watch Grey's Anatomy and Raising Hope on Hulu but lately they haven't been doing much for me so I might just give them up.

Dexter is one of my favorites along with Doctor Who and Glee. I'm really getting into Alcatraz too.
