Women Who Don’t Like These TV Shows Should Be Avoided Like The Plague

There are lots of important things to look for in a woman, and interest in television shows is right there at the top of the list.

I have done lots of thinking over the past few days. I’ve thought about what I’d like to have for dinner, movies I’d like to see, America’s foreign policy, my finances, Wisconsin getting screwed by the playoff committee, Ohio State getting screwed by the playoff committee and if you can date women with different TV interests.

I’ve come down and decided on two points. The first point is that you should never marry a woman who hates sports. That’s a big fat no.

However, it gets a bit dicier when it comes to television shows.

So, I’ve compiled a list of shows I think every woman should show at least a little interest in. Now, let me be crystal clear. I’m not saying she has to agree with every single pick on this list. I’m simply saying she should at least agree with more than one.

Here is the list:

  • Band of Brothers
  • Entourage
  • Eastbound and Down
  • Game of Thrones
  • Vice Principals
  • It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia
  • Parks and Recreation
  • Justified
  • Silicon Valley
  • Westworld
  • South Park
  • The Office
  • LOST
  • Jericho
  • Alias

This list hits all the main genres. It’s got your war mini-series with Band of Brothers. Alias, Jericho and Justified serve as dramas with plenty of action. Westworld, LOST and Game of Thrones check off the boxes of the fantasy/sci-fi/just plain badass stuff. The rest fill out the comedy genre.

You don’t have to thank me right now, but I’m promising you that I know what I’m talking about here. Go home tonight, ask your wife or girlfriend if they enjoy any of the shows on this list. If they respond with a “no,” then politely inform them that a moving company will be by in the morning to pack their stuff up.

I’ve saved you all a lot of trouble.
