Most of the guys I know complain about the control-of-the-remote problem. After the kids are in bed the television goes on and right there the gender divide becomes more pronounced that who changes the diapers or goes to the grocery store. One could characterize it as the NFL vs. Reality TV, but I won’t since that is just too much of a stereotype on both sides. But suffice it to say that watching television at night can be a romantic and relaxing routine, but it often is not.
To help stoke the flames of marital bliss, I have pulled together a list of 10 shows that I think are good ones to watch with your wife because no matter what your interest both genders will probably get something out of it. Of course my opinion is just that and blinded by my own narrow-minded view of tv as art. So feel free to disagree with me violently and suggest your own in the comment section. Several of these you are going to have to go to Apple TV or buy on DVD. Or if you have never watched, even if they are still on TV I suggest you start at the beginning. All that applies except for Chelsea. DVR her show and use like a sorbet–something to cleans the palette between courses.
