I used to watch a lot of television, too much television, but I now have four shows that I either watch or record. My hubby and I watch these shows on the weekend.
I don’t like most of today’s television shows. They lack the characterization which I've enjoyed from past decades.
I was thinking how some of my chums on Soup remind me of some of my favourite characters from some classic TV shows. And I don’t mean actor doubles, I mean that I see some similar traits... all of them strengths!
This is all meant as fun, but if somebody should feel offended, I’ll take down this blog lickety split!
Carrie – Mary Tyler Moore – no explanation needed.
Debbie – Mrs. Sherwood, FAME, caring, focused, committed, layered, a good teacher,will go to the mats for you.
Chris- Chris from northern exposure, sage, poet, philosopher. (Chris, I know that you watch NO television whatsoever... here’s a link if you’re curious http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xHGkmp3wzNI or http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D6QjdgMxTCg
Nette- Counselor Troi, star trek, next generation , intuitive, caring, passionate. Sympathetic, good listener, old soul.
Ruben – Wilson from Home Improvement- forthcoming but always mysterious. Cool!
PD – bat girl, a bit mischievous, can’t-keep-a-good-girl-down vibe, fun, kick arse gal!
Andrea – Bailey WKRP in Cincinnati – friendly, but just a bit shy, wry but never rude.
Craig – Barney Miller –Gentleman, except when its time to roll up the sleeves. Good sense of humour!
Tracie Indigo Dreamweaver – Abby, NCIS – A touch goth, a tad sad, sweet, witty.
Mandy Tams – Carol Burnett – funny, real, layered, caring, very natural.
David Williams – Sheriff James Brock, Picket Fences. Honest, curious, driven, kind.
Catie Lindsay – Captain Colleen McMurchy from China Beach, caring, dedicated, direct, scarred but strong.
Enn Pee – Veronica Mars, detective extraordinaire, MacGyver-ish, yup. cool. No. UBER cool.
Mystic Rose-Carolyn Ingalls, Little House on the Prairie. Devoted, patient, has depth.
If you’re on the list, how would you characterize yourself?
If you see someone on the list you know and like, how close was I?
If you aren’t on the list... share who you relate to...
I had fun! Man, I need some fun.... lots going on....
Hugs and love to every character on Soup.
Oh, yeah, PS
My husband says that I am Alli McBeal as I do have a WILD imagination.
I think I’m more like Helen Hunt in Mad about You...
Oh, ps, the shows I watch? Castle, NCIS, Bones. Occasionally, I watch Grey's Anatomy, but I find many of the characters self-absorbed...
