For the Love of TV

I love tv. I think I've always loved tv. I don't remember a time when I didn't.

For my 5th birthday, my great grandfather brought me a Zenith 19 inch color television for my room. It had a huge remote control because among it's features, it included a speaker phone, and you could dial up the phone numbers from the remote.  I kept that televisions and watched it religiously until it went out when I was 17.

This is me on my 5th birthday. Don't I look like a kid in need of my own tv?  I was a bit spoiled.
It was 1981 and a Barbie party, 'nuff said.
This past weekend was my weekend off between my two weeks of teaching 17 hour weekends and next week's final teaching weekend.  I basically dedicated my entire weekend to television.

Friday night, I caught up on all the shows I have missed over the last couple of weeks.

Yesterday, my friend Billy came over for a Newsroom marathon. Today, on top of some great television that's on tonight, the Emmys are on. It's television's big night. I'm a sucker for award shows, but I also love cheering on my favorites of television.

To round out my weekend of "for the love of television", many of our favorite shows begin with their new seasons this week. I love when all our television "friends" come back into our life after their long vacation. A couple of weeks ago, I mapped out a calendar so I knew when all my shows would air and when they premiered. I didn't want to miss a thing.

I've already started watching a couple of new shows, but I'm not in love with any yet.  We are still getting to know each other, so to speak.  There are a few others I want to check out when the start up too. What about you, any new shows you area looking forward to?  What about old ones that are returning?
