question of the day: What do you think is the best thing on TV at the moment, and what is your TV guilty pleasure?
Today’s question comes from Isobel_A:
What do you think is the best thing on TV at the moment, and what is your TV guilty pleasure?
From my perspective, the best thing on TV is undoubtedly The Good Wife. It’s perfect from beginning to end; the acting is wonderful, and the plotting and scripting and casting and everything else is likewise brilliant. I have been known to giggle a little at the end of an episode out of sheer glee because it’s so good. From a (very, I’m-rather-ashamed-of-myself) guilty pleasure point of view: Supernatural. Mostly because every little bit of cultural conditioning I’ve ever had makes me want to marry Dean Winchester and make it all better.
My TV viewing has decreased considerably since I arrived in London in January, so this is a tough one for me. For all the complaining I’ve done about Doctor Who this year, I do think it’s probably the best show on TV at the moment: no other show takes such risks or is anywhere near as inventive. Mad Men is unrivaled as straight-up drama goes. My guilty pleasures are probably Castle and Burn Notice for their sheer goofiness, for the boy-watching — Nathan Fillion in the former and both Bruce Campbell and Jeffrey Donovan in the latter — and for the smart popcorn attitude they share.
