TV Thursday- Present Favorites

TV Thursday is a meme that explores the wonderful world of television!

Last week I talked about my childhood favorites so this week I thought I would focus on my favorites right now that are not new this season.

1. Medium (2004): One who communicates with the deceased. Allison Dubois is that person (based on the life of the real Allison Dubois). She's a wife and mother of three and works for the Phoenix District Attorney's office helping them solve crimes. She never gets sleep since the deceased always haunt her dreams so she can give them rest. This isn't your typical crime show; it's a character-based show. We see her life as a mother and wife; we see her husband and how he deals with his wife seeing dead people and now possibly his daughters. It's just great family drama! Check it out on CBS Fridays.





2. Bones (2005): Based on the life of real forensic anthropologist Kathy Reichs. We have Temperance Brennan working at the Smithsonian Institution and partnering up with an FBI agent, Agent Booth, along with her team of squints to solve crimes when the corpse no longer has flesh, only bones. Once again this a character driven drama with humor thrown in. David Boreanaz and Emily Deschanel have amazing chemistry. Just be aware that the stuff they show is pretty real-looking...my mom gets queasy and my hubby sometimes. But if you can stomach it it's a great show! Check it out on Fox Thursdays.

  1. I've never heard of Medium, but everyone keeps telling me I should watch Bones. And the Big Bang Theory.
    This season I've been watching Smallville, True Blood, and Gossip Girl.
    And I've been missing Battlestar Galactica.

  7. I don't release the names of any of the shows I watch. It's like a death sentence for them. Do you see "Chuck" this season? No! "Pushing Daisies? No. Nuff said!
