The shows I love include FRIENDS, White Collar, Sarabhai. Suits, 8 Simple Rules, Boston Legal, Scrubs, Sherlock, Dr Who, House, Psych, That 70's show. These are the ones I actually watched and rewatched then there are a ton of shows that I watched but didn't really become a fan of Dexter, The Big Bang Theory Grey's Anatomy, One Tree Hill, Gossip Girl, Mad Men, Desperate Housewives, 90210.... The list is endless!
What I love about the men and women on TV is the fact that everybody somehow sails through.Lots of drama but some smartness and everyone lives (unless it is Game of Thrones).
Here's a list of things that I learned from TV Shows
- Intelligence is immensely sexy: I don't really care for a pretty face, most guys on TV looks great. But damn! I think part of the appeal why I love Matt Bomer, Benedict Cumberbatch is because they make being smart so so appealing. After a point you stop noticing their face.
- Humour is the best thing: Nothing works as well as wit. I have Chandler's sense of humour and it has made me and a few other people very happy. I learned that dealing with the most terrible situation with humour was still the best bet!
- It'll all work out in the end: I've never seen a TV Show without a happy ending, why should there be one? The one thing I've learned from all these TV shows is simply how all the craziness finds salvation.
- It never hurts to be rich: Philosophy aside. It does promote the perks of having enough money. You can always cry in your penthouse, a lot more comfortably.
- It's okay to live in a parallel world: We all have our fantasy and it is absolutely great to invest time and energy in understanding the nuances of a culture that you will never encounter. It teaches you a lot more about yourself. (Dr Who)
- Who says you can't cry over fictional characters? :The characters you love on screen remind us of people we know, you can;t blame people for emotionally being tied to these characters. don't know a Sherlock like character, but I definitely know people who are smart, curious and so well read. I'm investing in Sherlock as a mirror to these people.
- Accept Problematic Characters and People: Someone said Maggie, you're exactly like Phoebe, I like you because of that. The more pronounced the flaws of the characters, the easier it makes for us to like the real people we associate them with.
- Nobody knows anything: I take so much comfort in seeing Neal and Harvey fail. They go in assuming that they have things under control and all hell breaks lose. Damn!
- It gets you interested in cultures/people nothing like yourself: Nobody wants to watch their life on TV, We want to be put in a situation where we'll have to make sense of unfamiliar territory and find it in us to understand their workings of people. Dexter? Breaking Bad?
- Women are awesome: I like how wonderful most women on the TV shows I watch are. Self made, confident, in control of their relationships. They have a million flaws and they so gracefully emerge out of every mess there is!
