My top five TV guilty pleasures
After you have spent as many hours watching TV as I have, you grow immune to the out of date idea that television rots your brain or that it's the opiate of the masses or any of the other nonsense that has been spouted throughout the years. However, even though I love television and make no excuses for that love, there are a few shows that I am almost ashamed to say that I love. Here are the top five shows that I can't get enough of.
1. Big Brother
I look forward to this show every summer. Ever since season two, when Dr. Will showed that it's possible to be the biggest prick in the house and still win, I am always amazed by BB.
2. Melrose Place
I've mentioned this show before. Watching the goings on at the apartment complex made legendary by Amanda, Billy, Alison, Jake and the rest was something I did alone. It wasn't until after the show was off the air that I even admitted to watching. In retrospect, I regret not embracing the greatness of MP while it was on.
3. Hells' Kitchen
I am not a fan of cooking shows, but I love people who yell. Watching Chef Ramsey drive people to tears is the highlight of my summer.
4. Spongebob Squarepants
I know I'm not the only adult who watched this show but sometimes after they've gone to bed, I browse through my TiVo and giggle like a little girl.
5. The Partridge Family
David Cassidy has been my biggest boy crush since I was in college. Long ago, I stopped trying to defend the Partridges and just accepted that no one can appreciate them the way that I can.
