New policy

I am thinking about installing a new policy in my life: no TV except, once a month, when I take an entire day for myself and don't interact with people. I think this will help me stay emotionally happy (wow, I can't believe I just wrote that), but will also let me keep up with my TV shows. Hopefully this will let me waste less time hunting around for episodes, and will make me feel better about myself because I spend less time just wasting away.

Hopefully it will also make me feel less bad about watching TV all the time, because I have planned it that way.

There will of course be two or three shows I don't mind watching the rest of the time, only when new episodes are on: Doctor Who, White Collar, and NCIS, I think, for the moment, anyway. Burn Notice is starting to make me a little unhappy, especially this week's episode, where Vaughn tells Michael that Ansen (?) is trying to rebuild the organization that burned him. 1) I still don't really get what the organization is, or what it is trying to accomplish, or why Ansen is trying to do anything that he's trying to do. 2) I wish that a new storyline would happen, rather than the same things over and over again. Jesse is a great addition to the team, and possibly the only reason I still watch it—and I like him because he's new.

Covert Affairs is interesting, and has gotten better this season, but it has its problems. Warehouse 13 is a lot better than I originally thought, but I am not devoted to it (despite all recent evidence to the contrary). Psych is still good, but like Burn Notice, I am getting sick of the same story over and over again—it's refreshing that Psych and Julie have gotten together, but we hardly ever see them together, so it doesn't have a huge impact on the episodes. What else ... NCIS is still good, as it Merlin, but I mostly feel like I watch them because I don't have anything better to do. I want to get something better to do, except I don't want that something to be stressful.

I kind of want to watch Legend of Korra as it comes out, but I also feel like I will like it a lot more if I watch them all at once—I love it, and I don't mind that it's a kids show (it's even better because of it), but I worry that I won't be able to buy the cheesiness if I don't saturate myself in it.

Sherlock is the only other exception to the policy, I think, and that's because even though it is a "TV show" it is still more like a series of connected movies. Plus, there are only three of them, so it hardly counts.
