The Cons of Being a TV Junkie (like me)

Am I a TV junkie? Yes. You can tell whenever I review shows that I must have seen all of them at least once or they couldn’t otherwise be reviewed. How do I have time for all of them? Honestly, I get so far behind so easily, it makes you wonder why I do try to watch as much as possible and don’t just stick with one show at one timeslot like so many other people. Well, I’m here today to talk to you about the downsides of watching a lot of TV.

Most of my life revolves around TV. This is bad. Life shouldn’t revolve around something. But, nearly every day that’s not Saturday, I wind up making sure that I’m free and nothing is happening with me or where I live from 7-10 during the main season, at least. If there is something, that’s bad too. I try to make it so that nothing is too important. I will stop watching shows that haven’t gone to commercials just because something else is happening. But I make sure that none of my personal life takes place during times that I watch shows. If it does, I get a bit annoyed.

I record shows on tape and I’m always behind on them. The last time I was caught up on that was at least two seasons ago. Why am I always behind? Well, I don’t get caught up immediately after I’m done recording on a tape, nor do I make it a priority. I leave it to a one in six chance that it will be rolled from other options that I’m also insanely behind on. Those other options are (you guessed it!) TV shows of some sort. Only these are on DVD and not something current. But the VHS options are a problem in and of itself: they are typically the third show in a single timeslot that I like. That’s not to say that they are the only shows that are ever recorded on VHS, but they are the most problematic.

What problems do other TV junkies have? I have no idea. But there are many things in life that I could be doing, but I’m not since I’m watching TV most times. I’m not sure if I should delve too much into my personal life, but a whole lot of it revolves around watching TV shows. If you don’t believe me, then check out my other blogs which are all about a specific show. I need to work on updating reviews of certain shows so you can see which new one I have. Basically, there’s a lot more that I could add to this while I’m watching a TV show, but I won’t. Junkies have problems, even if you are a TV junkie.
