I have never been a fan of TV series. While at BITS, most people seemed to be affected with the FRIENDS bug, but it never caught on to me. At IIMB, the people hard pressed for time often found TV Series a good time-efficient way to relax. There are in fact a very few series I would sit down to watch and here are three most favourite of mine. I have deliberately put out old Doordarshan serials as I do intend to relieve those good old days in another post.
The Wonder Years: My favourite show of all times. I watched it after I grew past Kevin’s age but somehow this series reminded me that kids and teens the world over are pretty much the same. It’s only when we grow up, we fill our heads with ideas and draw our own boundaries.
Scrubs: I started watching Scrubs the night I got my Summer Internship offer and I was hooked on to it. Somehow JD seemed to commit the same mistakes that I had committed or was committing, Dr. Cox had this wall built around him which I was so very familiar with and their life was so much like ours in the B school.
Mind your Language: A fascination for the Queen’s perhaps is my reason for absolutely loving this show. Though exaggerated at times, this show promised a multilingual world bound by a common language and I fell in love with it.
The other shows which have survived more than one viewing includes Heroes, for it’s X-men like fantasy, How I met your Mother for suddenly making me realize that even my friends were slowly settling down and I never bothered to think about it and FRIENDS for being a series which one could always watch reruns and never get tired of the same.
