American Shows/Movies

I don’t tend to watch as much American television anymore. Because of the nature of American television (with its need to take a show and beat it into the ground, as long as it’s selling), I have stopped watching most American shows. The shows that I like either end up getting cancelled (Firefly, Dark Angel) or mutate into something else because there is no story left, but the show must go on (X-Files, Gilmore Girls). I’d have to really like a show before I jumped onto the watch wagon. I usually wait until the show is at least a year old before I give it a chance now. The shows that I tend to watch are more villain of the week/procedural types. Listed below are shows that I am also currently watching. Whether my ratings of them change is all dependent on how these shows grow over time.

In terms of watching American movies, I very rarely go out and watch any. When I do, I have to be careful about the movies I do watch because they, like anything, tend to leave a strong impression on me, especially if I can’t get up and leave after paying for it. ūüėõ If the movie was too depressing or had a sad ending, I tend to come away in a depressed mood. Listed below are the movies that I have recently watched, as well.

Here are the discussions on American shows and movies:

    • HI Emi,

      Thanks for the suggestion. While I don’t watch many American shows, I might give this one a whirl when I have the time. I did try Grimm, and ended up dropping it after a few episodes.
