I'm not going to lie: In my eyes one of the best parts about fall is my favorite tv shows starting up again. I used to only have a few tv shows that I watched religiously. And by religiously, I mean they were recorded so I could watch on my own time and Parker knew not to even try to talk to me while I was watching. For example, he doesn't even dare speak if Gilmore Girls is on. What a good guy.
Then, this little amazing thing called Netflix came into my life and all of a sudden my Fall Must-Watch List is long. Like seriously, long. Not that there's anything wrong with long ;) But this list is going to be quite the commitment on my part. Thanks to Netflix, there are 3 new shows on this list that I wasn't
watching obsessed with last season. But I know I can do it; all I need to do is set my mind to it. And set my TiVo to record all these faves:
1 || Dancing With The Stars
Mondays @ 8/7c (Premieres September 15th)
This one is a give-in. I grew up dancing so how could I not watch a show all about movement, music, and expressing yourself through dance? Plus, I secretly wish I looked like those girls and got to wear those costumes. Don't we all?
2 || The Bachelor(ette)
Mondays @ 8/7c (Premieres January 2015)
I'm sure the next season (this winter) will be the most dramatic season yet! I can't help it. I guess it's a guilty pleasure or something.
3 || The Big Bang Theory
Mondays @ 8/7c (Premiers September 22nd)
I have my husband to thank for this one. He started watching on Netflix and now we own 2 seasons on DVD and our TiVo records the show every.single.time it's on whether it's new or old. knock-knock-knock Penny, knock-knock-knock Penny, knock-knock-knock Penny.
4 || Law & Order: SVU
Wednesdays @ 9/8c (Premieres September 24th)
Olivia is badass and I personally think the storyline keeps getting better and better. I miss Elliot, but I'm still obsessed. Also, this premiere is on mine & Parker's 4-year anniversary. Watching Olivia kick some butt sounds like a romantic end to the evening, yes?
5 || Grey's Anatomy
Thursdays @ 8/7c (Premieres September 25th)
Can't stop won't stop. I've watched this from the beginning and am still going at it. I think the story took a dip a few years ago but have really enjoyed the last 2 seasons. Plus, McDreamy is reason enough to tune in each week.
6 || Parenthood
Thursdays @ 10:30/9:30c (Premieres September 25th)
This one got 2 gifs so it's obviously my favorite. Fav.or.ite. I love every single character. I love every single episode. I laugh. I cry. I smile. I relate. There is absolutely nothing not to love. Except for the fact that this next season is possibly it's last? So many people love this show I don't think it should every stop. If the Bachelor can make it 19 seasons, so can Parenthood. Jeesh!
7 || Scandal
Thursdays @ 9/8c (Premieres September 25th)
Thank you Netflix, for this one. Olivia Pope rocks and all I want her to do is marry the President and live in the Vermont cabin. I'm a sucker for a good love story.
8 || The Biggest Loser
Thursdays @ 8/7c (Premieres September 11th -- tonight!)
I don't know what it is about watching XL people kick butt at losing weight but I just can't help myself. And I normally enjoy this one while eating ice cream and telling myself I'm going to the gym in the morning. If you're new to this show, make sure to have Kleenex available for the Season Finale. That's just one big sob-fest at our place.
9 || Last Man Standing
Fridays @ 8/7c (Premieres October 3rd)
I watched Home Improvement growing up and now I watch Last Man Standing. How could you not? It's an easy, 30-minute show about a man and his 3 daughters (which is a funny coincidence because he had 3 sons in Home Improvement). Plus, Parker will actually watch this one with me.
10 || Blue Bloods
Fridays @ 10/9c (Premieres September 26th)
You can't have a Fall TV Line-Up without a crime show in there. This one gives you the mystery and drama of a crime show series, but also the feel-good scenes of a family show. I just love the Reagan family.
11 || Revenge
Sundays @ 10/9c (Premieres September 28th)
Again, thank you Netflix. Season 4 premieres in 4 a few weeks and I haven't even finished Season 3 on Netflix yet. This one will reel you in from the very first episode. I love a good series that is mysterious, sexy, and easy-to-watch all at the same time. Emily Thorne, you are also badass.
For the record, it really bothers me that there are 11 shows on this list and not a nice, even, number of 10. Also, thank goodness for Tivo - that's all I've got to say. Looks like my Thursdays will be fairly busy. Don't expect great Friday blog posts :)
What will you be watching this fall?!
