Tonight marks the start of the 3rd season of Game Of Thrones. I don't know if you've ever seen it, but I absolutely love the show.
It's rather imaginative and well written; with fascinating characters and interesting plot twists. Those of us that watch the show have waited a very long time for this 3rd season to start.
I realized something today....Game of Thrones is the only series on television that I actually watch on a regular basis. I don't watch anything on network television and I don't watch any other series on cable that isn't news related or some kind of political show. Not with consistency anyway. I don't like the idea of watching reality television shows and I haven't seen anything else that moves me enough to watch it constantly.
I can't wait to see how this season of Game of Thrones unfolds. Of course, if I really wanted to know, I could just read the books by George R. R. Martin. But the simple truth is that I'd prefer to just watch the series.
I do watch television everyday. But I tend to watch a lot of news shows and The Military History Channel, ESPN, The Discovery Channel, The Food Network, Animal Planet and The History Channel. What I do watch occasionally are Real Time with Bill Maher and Morning Joe with Joe Scarborough.
I like Bill Maher, I think he's funny as hell!!! While I don't always agree with him, I find his wit hilarious. I like how he doesn't always take himself too seriously and I like his passion for some topics....even though some of those topics are of things I couldn't possibly care less about.
As a matter of fact, I've been watching Bill Maher's "politically incorrect" shows for more than 20 years now.
Often I will watch Morning Joe before and as I get ready to go to work in the mornings. I like his show because it does a pretty good job of presenting both political sides fairly evenly.
I don't always agree with Joe Scarborough, but I don't always disagree with his political views either. To me, he acts like an adult. He doesn't always just spit out the party line, he forms his own opinions based on his personal experience and what he considers to be logical. He has no problem calling out members of any political party....including his own for their stupidity.
No, I don't always agree with him, but I do respect the man.
Tell me, what do you watch on television?!?
