My friend Sue told me a few weeks ago that I could watch episodes of Days of our Lives if I downloaded the app, which has pretty much ruined my late-afternoon writing time (bad, Sue!) On the flip side, I'm much happier to make dinner or do other household chores, since my "TV" is portable. Nothing like folding laundry while watching Bo and Hope proclaim their undying love...again.
But Friday I was feeling kind of blue - a day for regrets, self-doubt, and wishing I had a time machine. (*end of pity party starts now*) Instead of writing productively, I watched a hella lot of TV on my Global app. I've already bookmarked a few of my favourites.
Like Sarah Michelle Gellar's new series, Ringer. I was NOT a Buffy fan. *ducks* And Ringer is being trashed by reviewers. But I've seen the first two episodes and have already added it to my "must-see-TV" list. Hubby...not as impressed.
So what's this got to do with Adam Garcia, this week's muse avatar?
In addition to my standbys, Supernatural, Vampire Diaries, Glee, and now Ringer, I've fallen head over heels for the police/crime drama, Prime Suspect. I love the grittiness of it, and I've always been a fan of Maria Bello, who I first saw on Coyote Ugly.
She starred alongside Garcia. Between his sexy accent, his adorable addiction to comic books, and his unwavering support of his girlfriend's talent (when she isn't shaking it on the bar), I challenge any girl not to have a crush on him. He's freaking cute!
I've been dabbling in TV scripts for a while now, and this weekend found myself ankle deep in a new idea (surprise!) that I *must* explore - even for a few hours. Although I don't think Adam is on the small screen (or any screen lately, for that matter), he reminds me of Maria Bello and my new show addiction, Prime Suspect. And of course, my new project...
I doubt he'll keep me on track (the non-new WIP list continues to collect dust) but he may just provide the inspiration I'm looking for to explore this new venture. And isn't that what a muse is for?
I'm almost afraid to ask...have I missed any of the season's great new shows? (I'm patiently waiting for Once Upon a Time and Dexter...) What's on your "must-see-TV" list?
