Tuesday Topics: 8 TV Shows

I stumbled across a link-up/cute Tuesday theme for the blog and couldn't help but hitch myself to the bandwagon. In typical fashion, my acquaintance with the wagon was a little late, but as it has been said before, "better late than never", right? Right. So, before I give you my eight shows. Here's a rundown of Tuesday Topics.
The Austin Family Diary
Now without further ado, let's get to the shows. These are in no particular order except for #1 which will always hold a very biased place in my heart. 
 8. Homeland

So, I guess I owe fiance credit for this one considering the only time I get to watch it is when I am in Houston! He, fortunately, has this channel; I, unfortunately, at school do not. However, absence makes the heart grow fonder, so when I do get to watch these episodes, I love it. Even when I don't, Andrew has to give me the play-by-play of the episodes. I mean, did they, or did they not both just win Golden Globes?
7. Modern Family
I often try to pick a favorite character on this show, and it is just about impossible. From Gloria's voice alone to Phil's complete obliviousness/gooby arrogance, they all make Wednesday nights much more entertaining.
6. The Bachelor
I don't know if I would feel like the dramatic female that I am if I did not list this show. Given, I did boycott it for a good few seasons after Jason Mesnick dumped Melissa on national TV and then chose Molly/that whole Courtney season I happily neglected, but this is too much of a hormonally-raging bad train wreck that you simply can't take your eyes off of. It is also a reminder that no matter how crazy I think I can be at times, that my life is fairly normal compared to some of the women that grace this show with their emotionally-unstable presences.
5. Criminal Minds
This has been a new addition to my shows lately as I have been home for the Christmas break. My aunt watches it which led me to watch it, and now I love it. I actually think it's a love/hate relationship because I blame my lack of sleep some nights on this show due to my analysis of every noise and creak I hear.
4. Law and Order: SVU
I still remember my older sister coming home from college and buying this series on DVD. I instantly loved it. I mean how could you not with Stabler as one of the main characters? Ice-T, you are much better as an agent. Coco is not your best role.
3. Gossip Girl
Being locked out of my dorm room one night my freshman year of college led me to a friend's room where this series was playing, and it was love-at-first-Chuck-Bass-and-Blair-saga sight. 
2. One Tree Hill

As I mentioned earlier, I am late to get on the bandwagon with things, this being one of them. I had always heard of this show in high school, but it wasn't until fiance got a Netflix account that I was diagnosed with quite an unhealthy obsession with this show. Embarrassing to say, I watched all nine seasons in less than a year and shed quite a few tears along the way.
1. Boy Meets World
 As much as I love the previous seven shows, I just don't know if they can possibly hold a candle to Fa-fa-Feeny, Cory, Topanga, Eric, Sean, and the rest of the crew.

What are your favorite shows? Happy Tuesday!!


  1. Gossip Girl is my guilty pleasure - I don't even watch it in front of my hubby (he'd tease me endlessly)

  2. I love Modern Family! Phil is my fave. He is just too funny. All the characters are great!


  3. I love Modern Family. I am a little behind on the episodes, but I can't wait to catch up soon! Love Boy Meets World!

  4. As much as I do agree with all of those listed, you left out Downton Abbey and Mad Men! Two of the best! I highly recommend you checking them out :)
