We are in the era of peak t.v. To some, this means a plethora of programming to help fill their days and evenings. For me, it’s an avalanche of shows that leave me paralyzed by the overwhelming range of choices. And so, rather than choose and make a commitment, I just start another book.
While in the writers’ room these past five weeks, I was amazed by how much my fellow writers watched. They raved about shows I’ve heard great things about. They raved about shows I’d never even heard of. And they raved about shows that sounded like utter trash. In the end, I was left intrigued by some of their recommendations…and appalled by a few of their viewing choices.
So, even though I’m going to have my hands full writing these next few months, I thought it might be interesting to consider watching something. Note, I wrote “consider watching something” and not “watch something” because, when all is said and done, my plate is full and an entire season of t.v. watching is daunting.
All the same, I value your opinions. Of the following shows, which should I consider watching and – most importantly! – why? Convince me!
