Everyone has one. Maybe more than one. A show that you can watch over and over again, and it helps you feel better, puts you in a good mood, or helps you to sleep in a good way.
Hubs and I have been talking about our comfort shows for a few weeks. Mostly because since I bought the first to seasons of The Big Bang Theory it has been a permanent fixture in the dvd player in our bedroom. I don’t have cable running to the bedroom tv. I had every intention of doing so, but just never got around to it, and I think we’re better for it. We just have the dvd player, and it’s just enough television: great show, no commercials.
But Big Bang has been in the rotation for months. To the point where we’re talking about starting to rate our favorite episodes per disc and then per season. Yes. We’re dorks. Deal with it.
Big Bang is our comfort show. It’s the show we watch every night before we go to bed while we’re falling asleep and when we wake up just before we get up for the day.
I have other comfort shows. I don’t know what others Hubs would consider as a comfort show, but I certainly have a few.
Buffy the Vampire Slayer of course is right at the top of my list of favorite shows and is definitely a comfort show for me. Yes, there are vampires and it can be scary, but it is forever unchanging. And I can marathon the entire series very easily.
And then there’s Grey’s Anatomy. It’s not so much the surgical storylines that keep me coming back. It’s the personal stories that make me want to watch over and over. And I can’t wait to watch what will happen in the upcoming season.
What are some of your comfort shows?
