Super Nanny (The bedtime technique worked great for Greta)
Project Runway
The Real Housewives

Documentaries about:

  • History (not war - too upsetting),
  • nature (not animal cruelty or death - too upsetting),
  • medical (not gross)
  • miscellaneous (not boring)

The Colloquial Times

Overheard my senior year of college - an exchange between two acquaintances (one was in Mississippi for the first time):

HE: "I'm fixing to run to the store"
SHE: "You're FIXING to? What's that supposed to mean?"
HE: "It's a colloquialism."
SHE: "Well, I didn't live in the colloquial times."
