I've always liked watching TV, but when I was first diagnosed with Parkinson's and during surgery and treatment for breast cancer, TV was my best friend. So ok, I'm addicted. (Gotta have one vice!)
- I admit it -- I'm totally addicted to reality TV. Bravo is MY channel. The Housewives of (whatever) are my absolute favorite! What a bunch of train wrecks. Chick fights galore and lots of high school-like arguments and relationships. The Shahs of Sunset is a hoot.
- On TruTV I like Hardcore Pawn, about a pawn shop in the Six Mile area of Detroit. Oh, the drama! And of course, all of the talent contests: American Idol, The X Factor, The Voice (my favorite), So You Think You Can Dance. There are others but I've embarrassed myself enough.
- Do you watch Homeland on Showtime? THE BEST show on television by far. If you watch it, do you think Damian Lewis's mouth is a little small for his face?
- I am a hardcore glued-to-the-set sports fan. In addition to the regular stuff I even watch golf and NASCAR (there's a real strategy to it!). August to April is fabulous. Football (college and pro), baseball playoffs, basketball (mostly pro until March Madness), and NHL hockey (except for this season -- both sides are a bunch of selfish babies. The season is a wash.)
- Then we hit summer and Washington Nationals baseball. Mark my words -- World Series by 2015. Yep, it's a long season but have you ever REALLY watched baseball? There's a strategy to it! (Heard that before?) I used to score games when I lived in California. We had season tickets and there is nothing more relaxing than sitting in the sun just down the 3rd base line with a score sheet in your lap. I was at the park when Barry Bonds broke the home run record (the cheating bum). It was magic.
