This is the day three prompt for the 30 Day Blog Challenge hosted by Katie at So, Funny Story…
Your favorite television program
Today’s prompt is so much easier than tomorrow’s will be for me!
I enjoy crime drams and real crime shows, but there isn’t one I follow. Just if I’m in the mood to totally beg on a day or if I’m not feeling up to anything but being a couch potato and there are real crime or crime dramas on, I’ll watch and enjoy them. But really, I only watch Baseball and Degrassi with regularity.
My number one TV program Baseball! It’s always the Reds on Fox Sports Ohio and the Tigers on Fox Sports Detroit. And yes, I sit with the remote and switch between the games so I can watch both if they’re playing at the same time.
Degrassi is my teen-soap, which has always been more real than the silly afternoon soaps I don't watch. It’s a half hour show and I’ve followed the Next Generation since the beginning. I love the show and I am not the only “mom-age” fan by a long shot. Having watched the show with teenagers and talked about the show with them, I know that the crazy ideas the kids in the show have and the heavy drama are all very real. They don’t make up what drives kids to try drugs, get involved in gang violence or steal a car. They also don’t make up how seemingly little it takes to make them smile or drive their hearts and hormones al a flutter. If adults aren’t “too grown up” to watch, it really is almost a handbook for relating to teenagers. And I’ve loved teenagers since I was one.
Finally, I MUST watch Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer every Christmas season.
