Hah, I stole the blog title from TV Guide! Because they were talking about the very same thing this week (my mom gets TV Guide, I just use the Internet).
So, my guilty pleasure is Burn Notice. Jeffrey Donovan (who plays Michael Westen) is just so darn cute when he smiles; the big grin that shows his pearly whites. Okay, he’s a huge draw. But I love the show, too. Especially his mom played by Sharon Gless. She’s just too funny. In a way, the show reminds me of the old Mission Impossible. Sure, Michael’s been burned by the CIA (at least I think it’s the CIA) and there’s that ongoing plot line, but each episode is also about a client who needs help. Michael and his motley crew always develop this elaborate con game to save the client and get the bad guy. Just like in Mission Impossible (except without the masks). Hmm, you know, I don’t think Michael even gets paid for saving the client, so where does he get all the money for the fancy gadgets. Whatever. The show is very funny while at times kind of poignant. And the best is that my husband likes it, too. We usually enjoy all the sci fi shows like Battlestar Gallactica, but this is one of the few non-scifi we agree on. A few of my other guilty pleasures are Castle, Dexter, True Blood and Mad Men. Hubby likes Mad Men but not Dexter, Castle or True Blood. Oh, and The Office! Can’t forget The Office! Now, I should say that we always watch these shows on DVD, so we’re always a year behind. Okay, I sneaked in and watched Pam and Jim’s wedding, but other than that, we have to wait until September to catch up!
So, what are some of your guilty pleasures? I can put them in my Netflix queue! Leave a comment and your contact e-mail address and I’ll enter you in the drawing for an autographed copy of Open Invitation. I’ll also add you to my newsletter for updates if you aren’t already a member.
