New Kids on the DVR Block

I remember the day I signed up for a DVR and my Mama told me that it was a bad decision because I would waste so much more time watching television. I informed her that the opposite was true. I could live a life of FREEDOM knowing that my beloved DVR would be recording all of my shows which would allow me more time to spend with my friends instead of looking like a complete idiot having to rush home to watch Modern Family because it was almost 7:00 p.m. And because of the fast forward feature, I would actually be SAVING time.

The DVR. Next to the iPod, it’s the best invention of my generation.

Now that fall is upon us, I knew it was time to print out a handy TV grid in order to familiarize myself with the new freshmen sitcoms and dramas. Who would be compelling enough to land a coveted spot among the eclectic group of shows already committed with a series pass?

I’ve narrowed the candidates down to my favorite three:


Most of you probably know that I would love to be Mindy Kalig when I grow up. (Click HERE.) I watched the pilot and I think it has major potential. Setting the DVR up for a season pass was definitely a no-brainer.

2. Nashville

I covet Tami Taylor’s hair and long to have it grown on my own head. That is not the case, so I have to settle for being fake best friends. Her new show is about country music. Remember that I am one of a dozen people who actually went to the movie theater to see Country Strong. I own Pure Country. To sum up, I think I can push past the fact that Hayden Panettiere is the auto-tuned villain and really enjoy the wonder that is Connie Britton. Clear eyes, full hearts people.

3. Go On

Could I be any more in love with Chandler Bing ? I’m rooting for you Matthew Perry!

I know some of you will not be satisfied until you learn what other tempting treats live in the electronic bliss of my DVR.  Naturally, I’m happy to oblige.

Returning Favorites:
How I Met Your Mother
Gossip Girl (no judgement please)

Of course, I’m most excited to see my boys:

Even though people don’t get your show, never fear that I WILL follow you to Friday nights Joel. And if you ever need a love interest at Greendale Community College, have your people call my people.

And last but not least…

Downton Abbey

Season three looks SO GOOD. (Click HERE to see a trailer on Entertainment Weekly.) For those of you across the pond, it starts tonight! Those of us in the US have to wait until January.

British people are so lucky.

Now it’s your turn! Sound off in the comments section. What are you looking forward to? Are there any glaring omissions in your opinion? Let me know, because I am willing to give a show at least three chances. It’s only fair.
