My Fall Lineup

I have a hard time transitioning between summer and fall. I love summer. It's the only time of the year that I'm not freezing {I have low blood pressure, I guess}. The upside to fall is that I can bake without dying of heat, delicious comfort foods, and the return of my favourite TV shows. And because I'm me, I have quite a few that I like to keep up on. Here's what I'll be watching for the next few months. 

How I Met Your Mother: I've been watching this show for years now. Finally, it's the last season. We've met the mother, but there's still so much more to come. There are so many unfinished stories and I can't wait to see how everything wraps up. 

New Girl: The first season was okay, and then I didn't really stick with the second season. At the encouragement of my sister, Luke and I watched it, and it was hilarious! So now it's in the rotation. So far, it's awesome. 

The Mindy Project: I've been a fan of Mindy Kaling since she was on The Office, so I will watch this no matter what happens. It's clever and full of pop culture references, and I think it will only get better as it goes on. 

Modern Family: Admittedly, this isn't my favourite show on the list. However, I love the complex characters and the woven story lines. From a writer's point of view, this show is so clever. And I love Phil. 

Parks and Recreation: I wasn't sure about this show at first. It seemed like it was trying too hard to be like The Office. But I gave it a chance, and loved it. This show is witty and clever and hilarious. Plus, the season premier takes place in London, as if I wasn't smitten enough. 

Big Bang Theory: Honestly, this is just in the list for comedic reasons. Plus, every once in a while I understand one of the science references, and I feel smart. There has even been some character development, so I'm finding this season more interesting than previous ones.

Grey's Anatomy: Okay, okay. I know it's dramatic, and some people think it's a bit ridiculous. But I can't help it - I love the drama. And the characters. Plus, I think I almost understand medical jargon. 

Parenthood: I started watching this show a few years ago when I was waiting for my Green Card. I'd already made my way through most of Netflix, so I figured I might as well give it a try. Now, though, I'm not sure if it's holding my attention. I'll give it a few episodes before I make my final decision. 

And that's all I've got. So, friends, what are you watching?
