I watch a lot of TV and have no shame about it. Orange is the New
Black (so good!), Parks and Recreation, Mad Men, Buffy, Freaks and
Geeks, True Blood, Weeds, Six Feet Under, Nurse Jackie (well, not
the last season, it was awful), Friday Night Lights, GIRLS, Project
Runway, Scandal, The Americans, Game of Cards House of Thrones
(whatever)...and I'll always have a weakness for Sex and the City
despite its flaws.
...but my favorite show ever is not TV: TAL (I heart theory, but I
also heart Ira Glass).
Music: too much!
