Moms need time to escape. We all do it in different ways. With the new fall TV schedule alive and well there are a lot of great shows starting up again. Here’s a rundown of my favorites:
Mad Men. If you read my blog regularly, you’ll already know about this show. If you haven’t given it a shot, rent the DVD of the first season and start DVRing Season two now. It’s worth it.
Grey’s Anatomy. I’m not certain it will be as great this season, but I still love this show.
Dancing With The Stars. When I first heard of this show during Season one, I thought it was going to be hokey. It is anything but. It is an inspiring show worthy of family time (unless 82-year-old Chloris Leachman is being bleeped for cursing!) It makes you want to get up and dance.
How I Met Your Mother. I had to eat major crow during Season two of this show. I made a bet with friends that this show would never make it past a few episodes. That was before I watched. It’s the closest thing since Seinfeld to come along in ages.
Desperate Housewives. OK, this is on the bottom of my list, but it’s still intriguing. I don’t think this show has too many more seasons in it. It almost lost me the season before last.
Private Practice. The only reason I’ll try this show again is because it comes on a day when nothing else is on. And, I like the main character Addison. I think she’ll return to Grey’s after this show fails.
Pushing Daisies. Although I watched most episodes of this last year, I’m not sure I’ll find time for it this season. Beautifully executed, it’s the most creative show on television.
There are certainly more shows worthy of watching, but frankly, I have to limit how much I can actually watch. What’s your favorite fall TV show?
