Cable has seriously broadened our horizons. We had no idea what we were missing! I mean, I knew we were missing the food channel and the travel channel, but I didn't know there were so many home design and organization shows. Or animal shows. Or news shows. Or so many kids channels! There's even 6 or 8 religious channels! (We haven't watched those much....they seem a little...over the top.)
Brenna's new favorite show is How It's Made on the Discovery Science channel. It's a half hour show that explains how three or four different things are made. We've learned how they make baseball bats, butter, umbrellas, ice picks, levels, speakers and so much more. If we catch it on a weekday morning, she'd rather watch that than Dora the Explorer....that's sayin' something!
Michael and I enjoy being grossed out by Dirty Jobs. The host cracks us up and the jobs make us appreciate the lives we have. We also love to watch Ace of Cakes. I'm constantly amazed at the cakes they create. (Charm City Cakes) The have a minimum order of $500 per cake and are booked months in advance. As busy as they are, they keep it fun.
One show we've discovered is called Jon and Kate plus 8. If that show comes on, we are instantly hooked! First of all, we are amazed at how they handle 2 six year olds and 6 three year olds. But more than that, they are very real. When Kate and Jon argue, I often think it sounds like us. Monday night, we were both so tired from being up with Daniel two nights in a row, but this show came on and we stayed up till almost 11 watching tv. Sad, I know.
Surprisingly, we have not watched American Idol this season. Mostly because I've been following primary coverage on Tuesday nights and then we forget the rest of the week. We are, though, anxiously awaiting the return of The Office. We both get a kick out of that show and we've missed it.
As for Michael, he watches ESPN whenever possible. I think he's making up for lost time. Two years of lost time. That's a lot of basketball.
And that's pretty much the summary of our TV watching. Not that you asked....
I really am short on things to write about, aren't I?
