The Eve of Distraction

Okay. I'll admit it. I have to work to stay focused on a project when other, easier, pleasurable entertainment is so close at hand. And I don't mean my husband. I'm talking TV.

The fall season is officially back. For me it started last Thursday with the premier of Supernatural. And that show just keeps getting better! Tonight is Heroes. Then there's House. A new show called Fringe. Sons of Anarchy. Stargate Atlantis. Heck, if I worked at it, I'm sure I could come up with a show for every night. Which would all be very bad for my writing since I'd never get anything done.

But if you're jonesing for something decent to watch, I highly recommend the following to fulfill your craving: Supernatural (paranormal/horror), House (medical), Sons of Anarchy (biker drama), Stargate Atlantis and upcoming show, Sanctuary (Oct 3rd) (both Scifi), Fringe (Lost meets Xfiles), Heroes, How I Met Your Mother, The Big Bang, Bones, I could go on and on.

Oh, and Gemini Division, a new web-based thriller is just awesome. And I think that's enough.

I love Sons of Anarchy, you should also check out True Blood :-)

I would, Terra, if I had HBO! I've read the Sookie Stackhouse books and love Charlaine Harris. I've heard that the series is based on her characters, but that it's not an exact repeat of the books. I'm curious to see how it does.

Oh, and if I failed to mention them, The Office, Fringe and House are also excellent shows. :)
