I do watch TV. I’ve seen lots of series actually, but I sometimes have trouble getting into new things. There is something uncomfortable about starting something new, even a new show, so I re-watch old Parks and Rec episodes to avoid the thrill of The Walking Dead.
Below is a list of Shows That I Don’t Watch. I’ll list what I think they are about and what would help to make me interested in watching them.
Game of Thrones
What I think it’s about: I think this show is about fighting. The commercials for this show remind me of the commercials for the Capitol One Visa (What’s in your wallet!?).
What would make me want to watch it: If it were about actual games or actual thrones. Thrones from around the world, the etymology of “throne,” musical chairs but with cumbersome thrones to maneuver.
What I think it’s about: A guy who is in advertising in the 60’s. He reminds me of Dick from Dick and Jane fame. I picture he drinks and smokes and talks dramatically about things sitting down while those around him stand, less assured.
What would make me want to watch it: If it were a documentary series about mental disorder, people who study or have disorders, or people who have committed crimes under mental distress.
Two and a Half Men
What I think it’s about: 2 guys raising a kid.
What would make me want to watch it: If it were funny.
What I think it’s about: High schoolers that live as if in a musical or maybe they just do musicals every week.
What would make me want to watch it: If I knew the lyrics.
American Horror Story
What I think it’s about: A scary household where scary things happen.
What would make me want to watch it: If it were called American Unicorn Cupcake Story.
