The I Have Run Fall TV Preview

I tell you, life around here is too exciting for words.

I broke out my boots today. The Princess lost her fourth tooth last night. And you would have thought my Bean had never seen rain before based on her excitement level this morning.

I know you are jealous of the glamorous life I live, but don't be a hater.

As far as my amazing running life, I got my first pre-race butterflies this morning when I was thinking about updating my iPod before the St. George Marathon, which is only 10 days away. I couldn't be happier about running in the fall temps lately and just hope they make their way south in the next 10 days!

Speaking of fall, the hubs and I decided not to watch TV for two weeks. I'm not sure we really thought that through before we committed to it since a lot of the fall TV season is starting this week. The New Girl season premier is tonight. And the Modern Family premiere is tomorrow. I'm not letting myself find out what else I'm missing this week. Thank goodness for the DVR. I just keep telling myself that means we'll have a lot of good shows to watch in two weeks.

And since this is a running blog, I of course have to give my two cents on television shows...

What I'm willing to give a try:

Nashville. The hubs and I decided Hayden Panettiere has become enough less annoying to give this one a go.
Go On. I'm already liking this one. Matthew Perry is just so likable. Different from lickable.

Shows we are catching up on, thanks to Netflix:

Mad Men. I think we're up to season four.
Homeland. Damian Lewis just rocks.

Shows I just don't understand:

Once Upon a Time. It just doesn't have any appeal. It's like a creepy kids show.
The Mindy Project. Maybe I'll be proven wrong.

How is it still on TV:

2 Broke Girls. I can say this because I watched the first several episodes last season. Ugh.
The Walking Dead. The zombies in the commercials just look ridiculous. Maybe because zombies are ridiculous.
Animal Practice. Seriously. I saw the first minute of an episode and turned it off.

Shows I would watch if I had more time:

The Voice
Boardwalk Empire
Raising Hope

There are a lot of shows on TV. Did you know that? I just went through the Fall TV preview in Entertainment Weekly, and it is insane how much stuff is on TV just in the evenings. Good thing I run or I would seriously become a couch potato!


  1. To funny.. I love the walking dead but dish got rid of AMC and so I no longer get to watch it. :(

  2. I am going to watch the new show "Neighbors", the one with the aliens that live in suburbia. Fingers crossed.

  3. For whatever reason I feel like I watch less and less TV now. Main shows that I watch are Game of Thrones, Glee, Gossip Girl, Whale Wars, and American Idol. That is about it I think. All of my other shows have gradually been cancelled over the years, and I haven't picked up new ones. I've wanted to get into Homeland, but haven't been able to yet.

  4. I am just saying - they better start wrapping up "How I Met Your Mother" or I am outa here.

  5. Walking Dead is awesome. But I love a zombie... :)

  6. I actually don't watch any of those but I was thinking about giving Nashville a try so I may have to watch that.

  7. Yeah I totally agree on Once Upon a Time!! I'm excited for a few zitcoms just cause I need a break to laugh everyonce in a while so I'm looking forward to Modern Fam. and New Girl. But I usually fall behind and have to catch up on the internet.

  8. That would be funny for sure!Walking Dead, oh I'l be loving that!
