Thank you guys for your well wishes on my last post! Your kind words always mean so much. Seriously. Thankfully, I am feeling better today.
Since I spent a lot of time over the weekend bedridden, I watched an obscene amount of TV. (Yes, even more than usual, which by any stretch of the imagination, is obscene.)
When I am not feeling well or I’m down or I’m having a particularly bad day, I tend to revert back to my old favorite shows; my comfort shows, if you will. I define comfort shows as this: (a) They always make me feel better (b) I usually watch the show if I am randomly scrolling and see it is on (c) I watch the same episodes over and over again without the threat of boredom.
At the risk of seeming like a total
loser hermit, here are some of my comfort shows:
The Golden Girls. I might have the DVD boxed set.
Sex and the City. I definitely have the DVD boxed set. Collector’s edition with bonus scenes. I prefer the late 90’s episodes when they made fashion errors and Carrie’s apartment was nothing to write home about.
Law and Order, particularly Law and Order SVU or Criminal Intent. Although vintage Law and Orders are also quite appealing, as well as any episode including Benjamin Bratt.
Brothers and Sisters. I stole the DVD boxed set from my mom.
Also, don’t judge, but sometimes I watch cartoons. I think when I’m not feeling 100% I just want to be comforted by my mom and surrounded by my favorite things. Grilled cheese and tomato soup served on a tray in bed. A warm blanket. A fluffed up pillow. My favorite TV shows. Like when I was a kid.
Do you have any comfort shows?
