What is this blog about?
Besides my family, I love running and TV shows. I try to do as much running as I can outside, but I don't mind treadmills the way that many runners do. Plus, I'm able to stream videos on my Kindle Fire at the gym, so I'm able to indulge running and TV at the same time -- hence, the title of this blog. So, expect to read about TV shows and about running.
As for what kind of TV shows, I pretty much stopped watching sitcoms once "Malcolm in the Middle" ended a while ago. Now, if it's less than an hour, I don't watch it. I like serialized dramas and some competitive reality TV shows (which, if you think about it, are a kind of serialized docudrama).
A list of my favorite-ever TV shows would include:
"24" (Fox, 2001-10; 2014-??)
"The Shield" (FX, 2002-08)
"Justified" (FX, 2010-present)
"La Femme Nikita" (USA, 1997-2001)
"The Pretender" (NBC, 1996-2000)
"Prison Break" (Fox, 2005-09)
"Battlestar Galactica" (SciFi, 2004-09)
"Star Trek: Deep Space Nine" (syndicated, 1993-99)
"Survivor" (CBS, 2000-present)
"Once Upon a Time" (ABC, 2011-present)
"The Practice" (ABC, 1997-2004)
"Boston Legal" (ABC, 2004-09)
To combat the mental fatigue of the treadmill, I especially recommend "The Shield" and "24." The adrenaline rush from watching those shows alone is worth it!
