Last week, I posted my holiday gift guide for music. Up this week are TV shows:
HOLIDAY GIFT GUIDE — TV SHOWS
Wheezley bought me the first season earlier this year, and I was immediately hooked. This show follows two elite soldiers — Stonebridge and Scott — as they battle bad guys around the globe. The first season focuses on the hunt for a terrorist who is after a chemical weapon. Season two focuses on the battle to keep some nuclear triggers out of the wrong hands. Season three recently aired on Cinemax, which is also currently airing a prequel series.
The show features lots of action, adventure, sticky situations, and daring rescues. It would be good for someone who enjoys military/spy thrillers.
But be warned: there is some nudity as well. It is a rare episode when Scott doesn’t hook up with someone.
This show is part spy thriller, part workplace comedy. Sterling Archer is one of the world’s best spies … who just happens to work for his mother. And his codename is Duchess. And you get the idea. Add to that an office full of spies and other employees, and you’ve got a recipe for laughter. This would be good for the comedy fan on your list.
But be warned: This might be a cartoon, but this show has a lot of bawdy sexual humor and situations. It is definitely not for kids.
Yes, it is a cartoon about talking ponies who live in the land of Equestria, where all things are horse-named. But that doesn’t mean that it’s not awesome. Seriously, kids and adults alike will enjoy this show, which features lots of great takes on pop culture movies, characters, and more. My favorite character is Twilight Sparkle (the purple pony) who loves to read and lives in a library. Like I said before, it’s awesome.
So there are my TV show picks. What TV shows are you guys hoping to give and receive this holiday season?

I usually do one long holiday gift guide post talking about the things that I plan to give and hopefully receive for Christmas. This year, I thought I would do something different and break up the gift guide over several Mondays.
First up, is music. Next week, I’ll be talking about TV shows. And so and so forth. And away we go …
HOLIDAY GIFT GUIDE — MUSIC
One of my favorite things to do is put on some holiday music and wrap presents. It just puts me in the holiday spirit.
I really like Clarkson’s music, and I think that she has a great voice. So I’m going to buy her new album as an early Christmas present for myself. Hopefully, it will make the present-wrapping go a little quicker. LOL.
But this would make a good gift too, especially if you are exchanging gifts with friends and family a few days or even weeks before Christmas.
by The Killers
The Killers are one of my favorite groups, and this CD is basically a greatest hits collection, along with two new songs. If you’ve never listened to their stuff before, this would be a good album to start with. It might also make a good present for the music lover on your holiday shopping list.
I’m a big Buffett fan too, so I’m requesting this album for myself.
But it would also be good gift for anyone in your life looking for a tropical escape during the cold winter days and nights ahead.
So those are my music picks. What songs/albums are you guys going to give or get for Christmas this year?

I just wanted to take a moment to salute all of our veterans and their families today. Their dedication, courage, and sacrifices are the reason that we enjoy the freedoms that we do.
Thank you, veterans.
