7 Signs That I'm Watching Too Much TV

I'm the first to admit that I love to watch me some tv. I can almost always pick up the remote and find something on the tube to watch. And, when I find a show that I really love, I get totally invested in the series. Keeping up with the weekly episodes becomes a priority. My DVR often goes into overtime, recording the shows that I simply cannot miss.

While there are a lot of programs that I enjoy watching, currently, there are a few main shows that I'm obsessed with...

  • The Walking Dead
  • Sons of Anarchy
  • Parenthood
  • Grey's Anatomy
  • Scandal
  • Homeland
I know, I know. You might say I have no life. But, I say that I have a very exciting life - one filled with zombie infestations, biker gangs, crazy families, important medical careers, scandalous events centered around our nation's capital, and danger & espionage.

The other day I found myself daydreaming about working as some type of secret government agent. If you knew me at all, you would be rolling on the floor laughing at that because I'm pretty sure I would be way too timid and meek to ever be a secret government agent. But, watching Homeland makes me think, "hmmm, it would be pretty cool to surveil someone or thwart a major attack." That got me I watching too much tv?

Here are 7 signs that, yes indeed, I am probably watching too much tv:

1. I often check my surroundings to plan my escape route in case a herd of "walkers" gets in my way

2. I think it's kinda hot when Daryl uses his cross-bow and hits a zombie right between the eyes

3. When paying my bills, I realize I signed my check "Mrs. Jax Teller"

4. I actually think I'm the 5th Braverman sibling

5. I think that April is pretty darn stupid for worrying about losing her virginity to Jackson. I would've gave it up to him in a second!

6. Olivia Pope is my hero. I'm not at all offended when she makes out with the president of the United States, right in front of his secret service guys

7.  Even though the SAMCRO gang is a bunch of violence-prone guys who dabble in gun-running, drug-hauling, porn-business endeavors, I think they're really pretty nice

There ya go! I told you I get way too immersed in my tv shows. What about you? Do you have any shows that you absolutely obsess over?

Hilarious! DH and I watched the ENTIRE "Lost" series in about a month. It's ALL I wanted to watch and if we had to miss a night, I swear I think I got the shakes! Thank the Lord we finished it! LOL!

I have found my Television soul mate!!! Well, at least half of one =). I sometime start The Walking Dead before I have time to fast forward through the commercials and love the Talking Dead too! I did a little happy dance when I found out Scandal was picked up for another season this week and I just can't quit Greys.....the hospital I'm going to now is the one Christina is supposed to be at! My TV list goes on, but I'm happy to find another Walking Dead fan! I'm waiting for the "Keep Calm and Kill Walkers" t-shirt to become available!!
