Due to a batch of new shows recording on my DVR as we speak, I thought I’d talk about something a little unconventional for a food blog: TV. You see, it really isn’t that far of a stretch because who doesn’t like to have a TV show or music on in the background while you’re cooking? I know I do. Admittedly, I prefer music, but that’s mostly because I’m a huge fan of spontaneous dance parties… even if it’s a party of one.
Before I share all the *gems* of shows I’m watching this season, please note. A serious TV watcher I’m not. What I mean by this is that I don’t watch a lot of TV and that I don’t watch shows of a serious nature. Say what you will about my favorites but I gave up on paying any attention to other people’s opinions a long time ago – I like what I like. Let’s begin shall we?
Glee on Fox – Returning for the 4th season, the outbreaks of song and dance make my heart sing (see spontaneous dance parties above). So far this season has been pretty different due to a number of the characters graduating high school, but I like the new story lines. Only downside? The show is on hiatus until November.
Nashville on ABC - Okay so I’ve only seen one episode so far, but I think this is going to be a good one. It combines music and drama… clearly a theme for me. Anyways, while my interest in this show was piqued simply by the location due to a recent trip to Nashville it’s been more than fun to relive the trip via the sites on the show. Seriously shot on location people!
Chicago Fire on NBC - Does anyone remember Chicago Code, the show about the Chicago PD? Well I really liked it and they canceled it… and left a cliffhanger too, the nerve! I digress. Again I’ve only seen one episode (and a half – watching as I type) but this one seems pretty good too. Living in the area, it’s fun to track the places these firemen go. Warning – it’s kind of a tearjerker.
Hart of Dixie on the CW - I watched the first season because I have fond memories of Rachel Bilson on The OC. It didn’t take me long to get hooked on the show and watch the whole first season. The second season seems to be a mess of a love triangle, but this small town drama is sweet and heartwarming, not to mention Rachel Bilson wears a lot of cute clothes.
Don’t worry. Food Network is also still on constant rotation.
p.s. – The butternut squash recipe from yesterday’s WIAW will be up tomorrow!
