Better Late Than Never - Catching up on award winning television shows

by Deb Baker/Hannah Reed

The Emmy nominations have been announced, and as usual, I'm way behind in my efforts to keep up. I have a history of that. Some of my favorite shows I came into way late - Sopranos and Downton Abbey to name two of the many.

Why am I always the last to know when something is really worth watching?

Here's where I am regarding the nominations for one of my favorite categories - Best Comedy:

30 Rock - started watching the first season last week. How pathetic is that? Why has this not shown up on my radar until it was gone?Aren't there something like seven years worth and a whole boatload of awards?

Girls - haven't seen a single episode.

Louie - watched a few, but found his life depressing. Did I give it enough of a chance? Is this really comedy?

Modern Family - okay, I'm caught up - watched the first few seasons on DVD and worth every second of my time.

The Big Bang Theory - discovered this last year and have watched many of the oldies still going strong on various channels. Go Sheldon!

Veep - don't have HBO, but just watched the first season and it's a keeper.

So what should I watch next? And which do you hope wins?
