I lost the remote and the television was stuck on this channel. Honest – A #letsblogoff contribution

Seriously, though most of the guilty pleasures I am about to disclose below I ended up liking because I couldn’t find the remote after waking up at 3:00am with the television still on. Ok, a couple I consciously decided to watch for good reasons.

Laguna Beach

As a parent of a then teenager, I made it a point to always be knowledgeable on the leading cultural shows of the time, no matter how stupid they were. LB was quite painful to watch at first, but after a few candid, off the cuff conversations with my daughter, I discovered teens really do talk this this. And really do give each other bad advice like they did on the show. It was hard not getting hooked on the story.

Clarissa Explains it All

Again, kids, but this show was actually really well-written. I like when characters are given a brain.

Gilmore Girls

What red-blooded American dog can resist a smart woman who can do repartee like Lauren Graham? Seriously. Need I really say more.


Shut up. Don’t judge.

Mad Men

Not really sure this qualifies as a “guilty pleasure” but I’m throwing it in anyway. Again, who can resist a smart woman (Peggy)?

Slap Chop Informercial; Rap Version

Almost forgot to add Vince. Got to watch it all the way through; the old woman at the end is hilarious. Well, kinda funny. Ok, goofy. They only ran this a few times on tv, but we’ve got Internet so it is the version I like better.

This blog post is part of a blog-off series with a group of bloggers from different professions and world views, each exploring a theme from his/her world view. This was about answering the question, Guilty pleasures: what’s your favorite show on television? To explore how others handled the theme, check them out below. I will add links as they publish.

  1. I’m glad you threw in the TV commercial. I do admit to watching TV late at night on weekends sometimes with a six-pack of beer, just flipping around the channels. For a long time they had infomercials on a disk sander and a portable vise. I could never turn the damned things off! Although I will say that I subsequently purchased both products–I saw them in person at the Del Mar Fair–and both were as advertised! Worked like a champ, and I still get quite a bit of use out of them!

  2. I LOVE informercials. I almost bought the drill bit sharpener because that is just a huge problem. Actually, the problem is finding the bits..but once the kids moved out, it amazed me how easily I could find all my tools in the right place! But sadly, I’ve also remodeled every room in the house and have little need for power tools these days…
