I'll try not to "Shrute-it-up" this time

Okay, so I'm back after a long hiatus. I've recently joined the ranks of the landed gentry - I am now the proud owner of a lovely 3 bedroom, 1.5 bath home in Alexandria, VA. Woo hoo! Allegedly there's a drug dealer a few doors down, but other than that, the neighborhood seems pretty nice.

To kick off the new year here at Cultural Cuisinart, I offer summary judgment, in the form of a top 5 list:

My Top 5 shows

  • The Office - I am actually really enjoying the newcomers and hope they stick around. Karen is not only hot, but she's cool and smart, so even though ultimately Jim and Pam will get together, I hope they keep Karen around.

  • 30 Rock - A lot of people gave up on this show too early. I know I almost did. The first 2-3 episodes were lackluster at best. But then a funny thing happened - the show got really really GOOD. "Blind Date" remains my favorite, but subsequent episodes have also been great. Alec Baldwin is one funny bitch. This show is the Little Engine That Could. It totally snuck up on me, and I'm almost shocked at how much I anticipate new episodes.

  • Battlestar Galactica - Awesome for more reasons than can be listed at this time.

  • Ugly Betty - America Ferrera is great. This show is everything that is fun about soap operas, with many of the bad elements (poor dialogue, bad actors) removed. Vanessa Williams and her poodle-haired assistant Marc often steal the show with their snarky antics. Another great surprise among new shows.

  • Deadliest Catch - What can I say? It's just riveting TV. And I think I might have just a teeny tiny crush on Captain Sig Hansen.
