Your New Year's (Pop Culture) Resolution

Topmodel_lI stopped making New Year’s resolutions a few years ago, mainly because I wanted to stop feeling disappointed in myself when I didn’t keep them. However, I am willing to make a 2008 pop culture resolution, if you are…

Here goes: I will always at least look to see what’s on the Discovery Channel before I watch a movie on Lifetime, WE, Oxygen, or ABC Family; I will always at least look to see what’s on the Discovery Channel after each episode in an America’s Next Top Model marathon. (I’ll miss you most of all, Tyra.)

Your turn.

    ugh. I’ll do away with anything having to do with Tyra Banks in 2008. ANTM is such a scam. everything about the eliminations this season were so wrong. (I’m really not joking. Tyra–you’re jank.)

    I don’t believe in resolutions, but… Everyone’s entitled to a second chance and after Jaslene won, I was willing to give ANTM one more shot. Which they squandered in the most ridiculous season of reality TV I’ve ever seen (and I’ve seen many). I hereby resolve that I will never turn on Tyra again. If she won’t get off TV, I’ll keep her off mine at least.

    My 2008 Pop Culture Resolutions:
    – Take full advantage of my Netflix account by taking my queue seriously
    – Go to the movies more …hey, I live in NYC, there’s tons of stuff playing!

    Read Popwatch more often and Give new tv shows a chance before posting some crushing snark filled comment – oh who am I kidding?

  • Confidential

    I agree with all the anti-Tyra.. I stopped watch ANTM years ago… The contradicting comments to the girls are just pure crap! And bigger than anything, when was Tyra a supermodel?

  • Confidential

    My tv resolution is to quite MTV… Tila whatever her name is, is the worst show the network has ever done.. I mean really, when did it become Vh1?

  • Ceballos

    I’d like to join the “I’m quitting ANTM” ranks because the judging panels have been a gigantic sham for the most part the past few cycles…
    But who am I kidding? I know that I (and probably you guys) am going to catch one of those marathons on MTV one weekend, get sucked in and tune in for the new season just like we always do.

  • Matthew

    See a (good) movie at least ever other week (or every two weeks). And also I agree with the Netflix resolution from Tim. OH, and to not let my DVR pile up. I still have episodes of ‘Reaper’ and god knows what else from as late as September.

    One of the New Year’s resolution that I would like to abide to pop culturally is that until the writer’s strike is over to every Thursday at 9 pm watch episodes of The Office to fill in the Jim and Pam void that is in my heart.
    Also to fulfill my nostaligia of the my childhood and give American Gladiators (because names such as Fury and Venom are so awesome!).

    I kept my 2007 tv new years resolutions to stop watching MTV altogether, I don’t know if this just means I’m too old to enjoy it. I also stopped watching network television all together — which was part of my resoltion, but I cheated through my computer. The tv officially became the HOME of HBO and SHOWTIME and DVD’s. While my computers, i have two now, one which became instrumental to streaming ABC.COM and CBS.COM, i don’t like the way streams its shows so I stopped watching NBC altogether. For 2008, I promise to at least turn the tv on once a day to let it get some exercise.

    1.Boycott MTV once and for all
    2.Join Mandi in attemptig to watch the Discovery Channel or anything educational
    3.Go to the movies more

    I agree, Ceballos. No matter how bad ANTM gets, I’m still going to watch the marathons when they come around. Still, I don’t regret not watching it live anymore (especially after Jericho/Kid Nation came around in Fall 2006/2007 in its time slots).
    My Resolutions:
    *Indulge in more productive hobbies over TV and videogames
    *Watch Discovery Channel and CNN as much as VH1
    *Continue to avoid MTV and BET (even if the latter one improved its image a little)
    *Catch up with seasons 1 and 2 of Battlestar Galactica before March

    Continue to laugh at the demise of the view! Its pretty much dead now.
    Only watch American Idol for the hollywood auditions and the top 10. Anything else is just pointless.
    Give MTV a chance becuz its featuring a real world house with 5 black housemates.

    I mainly have two.
    1. Get a DVR. I way watch too much TV to begin with, and need to be able to tape it next year, as I’ll have waaaay too much schoolwork. Plus resolution two.
    2. Find time to get into shows I always wished I had. I started watching Supernatural online 2 days ago. I plan to also watch Alias, Pushing Daisies, Jerico, The Office, etc. Which makes resolution 1 even more important.
