Today is Ash Wednesday. Which mean the beginning of the Lenten season. For the past 2 years, I have given up the hardest thing for me to give up… Television. And I see no reason to stop this year. When I’ve given up TV in the past, I have found myself more focused, more motivated, more productive. Not only in my regular daily life, but in my spiritual life as well (which.. of course.. is the whole point!) Giving up something you love for someone you love is a bit of a no brainer. And that’s what Lent is for me. Giving up TV for the one who gave his life for mine? Ask me for something hard, why don’t ya.
It may not be particularly hard, but it won’t be a cake walk by any means. Especially when TV is so good these days. Here are 10 reasons that I will miss TV for the next 40 days…
#1 – Downton Abbey
Oh Lady Grantham, I will miss you and your snappy one liners!
#2 – Arrow
Umm…I forgot what I was talking about!
#3 – Flash
Check out last Friday’s post (click here) about couples that I am shipping these days. #SnowBarry is definitely in there!
#4 – The Walking Dead
This one is pretty self explanatory! Daryl must live! There is no other option for him!
#5 – Agent Carter
This lady is kicking ass and taking names. She also got picked up for a second season, which is excellent news!!
#6 – Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
Shield has actually been on hiatus since the winter finale (which was a doozy.) But it is returning on March 3rd, which means I will miss out on the mid-season premier and will have to catch up on it first thing after Easter!!
#7 – Revenge
If I believed in guilty pleasures, then I would definitely consider this one of them.
#8 – The Mindy Project
Week to week this show has been getting more and more adorable. And with the big Mindy/ Danny baby news, it promises to be even more interested in the days to come.
#9 – Hart of Dixie
Oh no… I forgot what I was talking about again!! Wonder why…
#10 – Netflix
Aside from the regularly scheduled program of day to day TV watching, there are the many treasure troves available on Netflix. Re-watching Arrested Development. Starting a new show like House of Cards. Watching movies whenever I want to. All that is going to have to wait till after the celebration of the resurrection of Christ Jesus, Lord and Savior… otherwise knows as Easter, of course!
Until Easter hits, I’m going to be very careful where I look. Spoilers are everywhere.
