Mixed Bag Monday.....Sort Of.....

Today's mixed bag Monday is a little different. In checking out the latest news and views, there just wasn't a whole lot that I felt like posting links to: whole bunch of people killed in Chicago over the weekend....the 416 children from the FLDS ranch are staying in state custody for now, thank God.....mostly stuff like that - just too boring.

Sooooo.....I thought I'd post up links to some of my very favorite television programs. Ones that I watch (or at least TIVO) regularly, and thoroughly enjoy.

  • The Abundant Life. This is a long running show on the EWTN network, hosted by Johnnette Benkovic. Half the time I watch it, I shout at the screen, and want to throw things at it, especially when the "experts" they use refer to "research" that is painfully non-objective, and not done in an ethical manner. Still, many of the shows do have some merit, and can be very interesting.

  • Doctor Who. I'm a Doctor Who fiend. I loved the program as a kid, and love it even more as a adult. The US schedule is about a season behind the UK. It's really a lot of fun to watch.

  • Let's Make A Deal. It's retro. It's kitchy. The prizes include some really ugly cars, 8-track players, "modern" color televisions, and a $299 "message machine" that lets you retrieve messages from anywhere in the world! The fashions and hair-dos are really disturbing, but it's just so much fun to watch. My DH and I are addicted.

  • Barefoot Contessa. I love the Food Network, and Ina Garten's show is my favorite. Her recipes are easy, and surprisingly recreatable - even for a non-gourmet cook.

  • Semi-Homemade Cooking with Sandra Lee. Another Food Network show. I admit that I watch this show for the hilarious factor of it, though, rather than the cooking "expertise". Although I'm sure that Sandra is a nice lady - the meals that she throws together are say the least. Add in the chronic alcohol use, and those tablescapes.... The shows are a laugh a minute. Whoot!

  • The Soup. It's a weekly show on the E! channel that recaps pop-culture and reality shows for the past 7 days. It's a lot of fun to watch.

  • And finally....the Law and Order franchise. I've been a fan since the beginning.

Mind you, these are only my favorite shows. My husband's would include Lost, The Riches, and anything on the NFL network!

Have a blessed day!
