What I'm Watching

My world is never silent.

I'm not just talking about the fact that my mind is always busy. If I'm at work, I'm listening to music. If I'm at home, the TV is usually on. True, I'm typically working on something else at the time and thus listening to the program more than watching it, As an actress, writer, and director, television provides me with the opportunity to further study my craft from the comfort of my own home.

Much like reading a good book, I can watch a scripted television show and a film for the sheer pleasure of it, getting caught up in the story, or I can truly study it, to break it down into beats, moments, and the space between. When I see and hear what (in my opinion) works or doesn't work, I take note of it. I learn from it.

I am currently watching (when I can!) the following scripted series:

New shows:
The Event
No Ordinary Family
Law & Order: Los Angeles

Returning shows:
Law & Order: Special Victims Unit

Currently between seasons:
White Collar
Covert Affairs
Royal Pains
I will watch the new season of Law & Order: Criminal Intent when Vincent D'Onofrio returns.

Then there are the reruns I'll watch of contemporary favorites in syndication:
Without a Trace (even if it's an episode I've seen a million times before)
Cold Case (ditto)
Law & Order: Special Victims Unit
The Office

It's funny how this post neglects to reveal my default channel (Turner Classic Movies) or the classic TV shows I enjoy. But that's another post for another time...or you may simply check out my previous posts about movies or television.

This post was inspired by a conversation with Emily. Hi, Emily!

What new and current shows are you watching?
