a true confession

I have a confession to make...


It's something I've been hiding for about 3 years now...


I'm ashamed to admit it for fear of what you may think of me...


But I'm just going to come right out and say it.


I love Matlock.


There.  I said it.  And yes, it's sad but true.  This is what happens when one doesn't have cable and has to resort to watching whatever is on the free channels.  And ever since Addie was little, the only thing to watch during naptime besides soap operas and Jerry Springer was Matlock.


I don't know what it is about that cute old white-haired lawyer, but he draws me in every time.  Maybe it's because it reminds me of simpler times when cell phones had to be carried around in a suitcase and actors could reappear several times as different characters - maybe this time as the murderer and next time as the unsuspecting victim and then again as the judge... "Hey, wait a second... didn't that guy die in the last show?"


And it's amazing to see how many current stars got some of their first appearances on this show.  Such as Jan from "The Office,"  John Locke from "Lost," Patricia Heaton from "Raymond," and many more.  It's always fun to recognize actors on this show and see their super cool hairdos.


So go ahead and judge me.  I can take it.  But I just wonder how many of you have secret tv confessions to make...

This is nothing to be ashamed of at all! I think I respect you even a little more now! ;-) If only tv could be the way it used to be...

Matlock is pretty cute...I might have to give it a try this week.
My favorite tv guily pleasure is....drum roll....America's Next Top Model. Love it! Even though it is pretty ridiculous and Tyra is, well, Tyra.

What I like to watch is really going to reveal my inner nerd! Ready...the local news! If I miss it, I'm searching for it online and even have it open on my phone. I think that's much nerdier that Matlock! I DO love the satisfaction of not having cable and saving money...if it's only saved to spend on other frivolous things!
