It’s already Day 4 of my 30-Day Challenge… so far so good! 🙂 Today’s post is about a TV show I am currently addicted to. Well, I do follow some TV shows and they are quite a few. I am a TV buff, I can just sit all day and watch TV, as long as the shows are good and entertaining (not to mention, my favorite). 🙂
To name a few of the TV shows that I am addicted to right now, read on…
First on my list is American Idol. I have been a fan of this show and now on it’s 10th season, I haven’t missed the first two episodes which started airing last week in Star World. This year, two new judges sit down with Randy Jackson, they are Jennifer Lopez and Steven Tyler of Aerosmith.
I did miss watching two seasons (8 and 9) but I have been following this ever since. It is one great show and according to Randy Jackson, it is the biggest talent show on earth! Indeed it is.
Next, is GLEE! And officially, I am a Gleek!
I actually wasn’t hooked with this high school “musical/comedy” show till I saw one episode where the cast sang “Imagine” by John Lennon with a group of hearing impaired students. I was so touched by that part alone because, first, the song was inspirational, second, it was performed by deaf students! So what’s the connection, you might ask, well, I used to teach deaf students and upon seeing that episode, I was so emotional because I miss my students. From then on, I was addicted to Glee, to the point that I had to go on Glee marathon!!! 🙂 This year, I’m happy that they’ve garnered some awards for their show. So happy to know that!
My newest addition to the TV shows that I got addicted to is MasterChef.
This competitive cooking show originated in Australia, and just had its debut season in the US. The show features amateur cooks from all over the US and every week, the worst dish cooked and served will be eliminated. The judges, Joe Bastianich, Gordon Ramsay and Graham Elliot are just as tough as a venison meat!!! Watching this show actually made me realize that I want to be a chef… 🙂 dream on! Honestly, I’ve always wanted to enroll in Culinary Arts even before, but I just didn’t have the resources, the time and funds. I would have been a chef de partie now or working in a world class hotel or a luxury liner as a “master chef.” Another thing that made me stick to this show is that I am just amaze at the talent of some of the contestants. There is a construction worker who is just as macho as he looks, he said he was a biker and all, with this mustache and tattooed arms and legs, but when he cooks, he has finesse and so much creativity! There’s a financial consultant, a software engineer, server, bartender, physician, caregiver and some other jobs, and yet, they are binded together for their love and passion for cooking! How I wish I could cook like them. Dream on again! 🙂 There’s also Junior MasterChef Australia. It just started a week ago and my son loves the show too! He would stick with me till the show ends and when we ask him if he wants to be a cook, he would just say “no.” 🙂
So these are TV shows I am currently hooked. What about you? What shows are you in to now? 🙂
