Shows I Don't Watch

I know I watch a lot of TV, but there are some shows I have never seen before that make me feel as if I’m missing out on crucial elements of pop culture. Everyone is always talking about them and then when I admit I’ve never seen it before I hear, “Oh my God. That’s such a good show. You should watch it. Well, actually, if you haven’t seen it from the beginning, it’s too late to start. I can’t believe you’ve never seen ____!” Then they give me a look like I have a hairy eyeball.

So prepare to gasp. I’ve never watched:

1. American Idol
2. Dancing with the Stars
3. So You Think You Can Dance
4. The Bachelor or The Bachelorette
5. Heroes
6. Thirty Rock
7. Mad Men
8. Lost
9. The Hills
10. Entourage
11. Jonas Brothers/Hannah Montana/High School Musical (Covered by the media more than talked about by my friends.)
12. Arrested Development (Which I know is off the air, but I feel like I lose cool points because I didn’t watch it when it was on the air. I put Freaks and Geeks in this category too.)

I’m sure I’m forgetting some too. And what the heck is Twilight?

What books/movies/TV shows make you feel left out?


  1. Nice to hear someone else has a hairy eyeball.

  2. I'm with you on most of those, but not So You Think You Can Dance and... ohmygod, TWILIGHT. It's the love of my life. But I liked it way before the movies - I like, read the books. :)

    BTW, you still have time to jump on that bandwagon.

  3. I'm right with you...except I started watching Mad Men this season. It is really really good...different and artsy and the fashions are amazing...a window into history.
    everything else...

  4. I don't necessarily have anything against these shows, I just never happened to watch them. I'll probably jump on the 30 Rock and Mad Men bandwagons...the rest, I'm not so sure about.

    I'll think about Twilight though, Jessica. I wasn't sure if that was a book or a movie or a show, so it's good to at least know what it is. If the library has the book, I'll try it.


I know word verification is a pain, but I'm getting a lot of spam comments, more than I can keep up with. I hope you'll leave a comment anyway. I really appreciate you reading and love hearing back from you.
