Heart Disease Schmart Disease

I watch a lot of teevee. A lot a lot. According to all the articles I read about heath and hours of television I should be the fattest, deadest Katherine there ever was. I watch so much television that no matter how healthy I eat and how much I work out, I will die an early death from heart disease. At least this way I have control of how I bow out. Unless I get hit by a bus. Which is very likely considering how much I ride the bus.

There are a lot of old standards that we're sticking to like The Good Wife (Which just keeps getting better. How is that POSSIBLE!?), The Closer, and How I Met Your Mother. But like the optimist I am I love trying out new sitcoms. I love 'em. I watch sitcoms past their expiration date sometimes because I just can't find it in me to give up on them. Same thing with some dramas. But there are some winners this season that I'm enjoying very much

The New Girl. Zooey Deschanel plays a young woman who needs to find a new apartment and ends up living with dudes. She's very wacky and as someone said on my Facebook emo-cute. And she can be a little unreal in her adorable quirkiness but I spent last night's episode gasping for air I was laughing too hard.

Two Broke Girls. This one took a little warming up. The rich girl gone poor character is a little tough to swallow sometimes but Kat Dennings' sarcasm evens it out and makes the show pretty funny and enjoyable.

The Ringer. Sarah Michelle Geller is not a draw for me. But Kristoffer Polaha and Ioan Gruffudd are draws for me. Not just because they are dreamy but because I like their work in other projects. Even if Ion Gruffudd was a terrible Mr. Fantastic. But what do I know? I refused to watch the movie because of Jessica "I'm barely attractive but only if I keep my mouth closed" Alba. SMG plays twins and there's mystery a-gogo. So I won't try to boil it down at this point.

So, me and my heart disease riddled body will continue to enjoy these shows. Not to mention Masterpiece Mysteries and Supernaturals (which bounced back this season!!). Kisses!!
