'Series'ly' Addicated...

*stands up*
Hi - my name is Gatvol - and I'm an addict! :)

Seeing as I haven't had an original thought of my own for a while - you see my boss has sucked the life out of my brains and refuses to allow me to think in any way or form - but I digress - I thought I would bore you to death with my addiction that I have managed to pick up since I've been here in Oman...

*drum roll please*

TV Series...

Yip - I admit I am 115% addicted to TV series - and I watch them in order - wiki episodes and seasons to make sure I have them all - and I EVEN have a booklet with the name, number of seasons and episodes listed - clearly marked if I have seen them or if I still need to see them - and if I still need to get the episode to watch it - its the OCD in me kicking in...

In order to maintain my stress levels - which have been going through the roof here - I have funneled all my coping mechanisms (ie OCD) into my compulsion of TV series - I'm becoming an expert (in my own little world!)

So - in no particular order - this is what I am / have been addicted too:-

* Two and Half Men - Thank goodness this is now cancelled
* How I met your mother - it's Legend... wait for it.... DARY
* Psych - Gus reminds me of me!
* Chuck - Cant wait for next season! Morgan's the man!
* Lie to me - bleh
* Supernatural - TEAM DEAN!!! :) Season 6 is starting to loose the plot tho'
* Weeds - I still need to watch the last season - can a woman be that pathetic?
* Brothers and Sisters - am starting to get bored of it will see if I will watch next seasons
* Ghost Whisperer - first few season were good - but didn't enjoy the last one
* Grey's Anatomy - I love this show - it makes me cry all the time! and I loved this seasons cliff hangers
* Glee - Another show I just love :) Esp. their Thriller episode
* Bones - easy watching although I wish I was that intelligent! Am disappointed in the way this season ended... they totally glossed over Bones and Booths relationship! OH and I cant wait for the spin off The Finders - looks good!
* Army Wives - I can relate to this one!
* Boston Legal - :) Denny, Denny Crane - I intend to watch this one all over again!
* Mentalist - bleh - so glad Red John is dead - can life continue now?
* Tudors - All I can say is JRM... drool drool - oh and the History Lesson was good too!
* 90210 - I love these teenager feel good series... (pathetic I know)
* House - Mr Sarcasm himself... I bow down to the master
* CSI - got to catch up from when Grissom left 3 seasons worth
* CSI - Miami - H just RUINS this show for me - I am leaving the last 3 seasons as a 'I have nothing to watch summer holidays show'
* CSI - New York - Love the music on this show!
* SCRUBS - My all time fav - and if you don't like it - I have 2 thumbs!
* ER - I'm sure I've missed some - it's such a long playing show - so I am going to watch them all over again!

I started off typing up a little 'blurb' about each one - but this post became really long and really boring - so I removed that! So count yourself lucky that I haven't bored you half to death!

And this is what I have waiting on the side line waiting to be watched:-
* Samantha Who
* Private Practice
* 7th Heaven
* 24
* 30 Rock
* Arrested Development
* Burn Notice
* Californication
* Fringe
* Sons of Anarchy

Do you have Series your addicted too? Recommend anything interesting to watch? I've got 3 months of School Holidays coming up and I need to keep sane... PLEASE let me know if there is anything else half decent to watch out there! :)

Anyways till next time!
Let me know if you have any funny addictions!


  1. The last one was "The Sopranos" for's not showing now I don't think, but I did get all six series on DVD...

    Thankfully the Showtime subscription expired and I didn't renew much more spare time! :)

  2. Hiya Linoleum Surfer...
    thanks for popping in...

    Have just added The Sopranos to my 'to my watch' list :)

    If I dont enjoy it - I'm coming to get you! ;)

  3. I love TV Series but so wish I had the time to squeeze some in. Btw Two & A Half Men is not cancelled, Ashton Kutcher is taking Charlie Sheen's place in the series.

  4. Oh you should add Melrose Place to the list of teenage series to watch. And Ugly Betty ;)

  5. Hiya Rummy - thanks for popping in :)
    Ashton Kutcher??? wow thanks for the heads up - not sure if I can see him in that part... guess I'll have to watch next season now!
    UGLY BETTY! of course how could I forget that one!

  6. watch big bang theory
    and if u liked 90210 u would surely like orange county i would also recommend watching dexter

  7. Thanks for popping in Anon! :)
    Haven't heard of Big Bang Theory before, nor Orange County - going to look them up later! maybe have a bash...
    I have dexter on the back burner... saw the first few and wasn't too interested... mighta been my mood at the time tho!

    Thanks for the suggestions!

  8. Try these:
    Criminal Minds;
    3rd Watch
    In Plain Sight

  9. Just started watching quite possibly the best show EVER
    The Game Of Thrones

  10. I've been enjoying a new Police show called The Chicago Code.

    It's based in modern day Chicago and based on catching corrupt city officials. Fairly entertaining.

  11. Anon, Vivek and Sythe!
    Thanks for popping in!

    Will have a look at all suggestions! Can't wait - nothing like feeding an addiction to make one feel better!

    Incidentally Anon - I have actually just added 3rd watch to my list - so yes - that one soon!

  12. “Ghost Whisperer” was recently named as the second “most missed axed show” in a Zap2It poll. I can see why. It truly was a show that had heart, soul, and spirit.
