My Facebook profile says that my favorite television programs are The Vicar of Dibley and In Treatment (both on DVD). Those are two of the most brilliantly conceived and written shows I've ever seen. In general, I love the well-rounded characters, the well-constructed plots, the beautifully crafted dialogue. I'm all about scripted dramas.
But in the summer, in the summer my tastes take a dramatic turn. Or, rather, a not-so-dramatic turn. And suddenly I'm all about a certain type of "reality" television.
- America's Got Talent (because I love my husband)
- So You Think You Can Dance (because he loves me)
- Design Star and Last Comic Standing (because my TV and I need a little alone time occasionally)
Well done, writers, actors, producers. Well done.
