Fall TV... So far!

I feel like I've been busier than normal this fall... I suppose that is true. Honestly, most of the time I feel like I'm drowning.  For instance, last night was the first night in a month that I spent two hours picking up shit clutter around the house.  Our house isn't DIRTY but it was mighty MESSY though!  Half of the clutter was shit stuff from the car that I took to have detailed a couple of weeks ago.  I took most of the junk out (or so I thought) before I dropped the car off... turns out the detailing place found THREE grocery bags worth of more crap! Ha!!! That kind of crap is just the "what do I do with this?" kind of stuff.  Think sunshades from when we lived in AZ, three pairs of sunglasses, multiple flashlights, cd cases, pens galore, etc. I was so surprised to see that much stuff! I didn't think the car was THAT bad! I digress...

Along with everything else, I've been behind on my fall tv shows.  I have always thought that Brandon and I watch too much tv, but after comparing us to some others... I realize that we really don't watch half as much as some people!  I record Brothers & Sisters, Desperate Housewives, Real Housewives of *whatever city*, Private Practice, Cougar Town and Oprah.  That seems like a lot, but I don't ever watch all of the Oprahs and Cougar Town & Desperate Housewives are shows I put on in the background when I'm doing dishes, folding laundry or blogging. Ha!  So, I really don't commit THAT much time each week to tv shows. Brandon records a number of shows but only seriously follows a few also. Even at that, our DVR has been FULL of my shows the past month or so! Brothers & Sisters is my favorite but Private Practice follows closely as my second fave.  I never watched Grey's... I just wasn't into it.  But, I love PP!  Brandon likes it too, so that's nice to watch together.  However, both of these shows make me bawl! Seriously, I cry like a damned baby while I watch these shows!

This whole post was supposed to be about the most recent episode of PP which shows Dr. Charlotte King (KaDee Strickland) being brutally attacked in her office.  Of course, the only show us teasers of the next episode but today I caught KaDee's interview with the ladies on The View and I am even more anxious to see Thursday's episode! It surely won't sit in my DVR long!
I thought it was interesting because KaDee was talking about how she is so proud of this story line because it is bringing attention to an issue that is very important.  I think the jist of what KaDee was trying to say is that she hopes that in seeing the story line that we're about to see Charlotte go through, victims of sexual crimes will find courage to tell their story or seek help.  I was very impressed with her interview.  However, I know that Thursday's episode will bring me to tears several times.
Just when I was pondering if Charlotte was becoming my favorite character on the show, the go and do this to her! I'm hoping to see her character develop a bit though and it is going to be interesting to see her in a more vulnerable place.  Charlotte is so HOT and I love the connection between her and Cooper... not to mention her sweet southern accent which is REAL! :)

My old stand by favorite, Violet Turner (Amy Brenneman)

is going through some interesting stuff on the show also.  But, I think for now Charlotte will step in for being my favorite... especially since my heart strings will be tugged by her emotional situation!  I will totally feel like I'm cheating on Amy though, I've loved her since I watched her in Judging Amy all the time! :)

Do you watch PP?  If you do, who is your favorite character?

haha! I just posted recently about all the shows I'm excited to start watching again this fall! haha!

I don't watch the shows you've mentioned but I totally understand getting all caught up in them! My husband and I really like Dexter on Showtime and I cried during the season premiere! haha!

As far as a clean car....what's that? hehe!

I set out this fall to keep up with them, but like you...I only half-ass listen to them while doing ten other things at once.

I watch all the same shows you do! I used to watch Grey's, but lost interest. So you will have to keep me up to date WHEN YOU GET HERE!

Hey, wine and PP night on Thursday it is!!!

Couldn't agree more! Love it! Crying during Private Practice is mandatory I think!

I LOVE PP. It ALWAYS makes me cry. I LOVE IT. I cannot WAIT for tonight's episode. I already saw the 8 minute preview.. i dunno who my favorite character is but definitely not V - she's annoying to me for some reason.
