By now you should know that I watch a lot of television…a lot.  It isn’t exactly like I am some potato chip eating monster without a social life, though – rather, I just like to have something on so that I am learning while I write.  Typically, my TV stays on Discovery, History, or the Cartoon network, so my head is being filled either by informative ramblings or inane chatter.

Though I have an extensive list of favorite shows, my new number 1 is How the States Got Their Shapes on the History Channel.  Starring Brian Unger, this informative series goes into extensive detail about how our 50 states, well…got their shapes.  From accent to choice of BBQ, How the States Got Their Shapes will enlighten you about a topic of which very few of us know a great deal.  For instance, I had no idea that the upper northwestern corner of Georgia known as Dade county seceded from the union in 1860 and did not rejoin until 1945!  In fact, if you look at the upper left corner of the Georgia quarter you will see that Dade county is not on the map.  Federal grudge, maybe?  Even if you are not a history buff I am sure you will enjoy this highly entertaining show, which can be seen every week on the History Channel (see for show schedule).

My complete “Top-Ten” TV list:

1)  How the States Got Their Shapes – History

2)  Mythbusters – Discovery

3)  Simpsons – Fox

4)  American Dad – Fox

5)  Bob’s Burgers – Fox

6)  Family Guy – Fox

7)  Only in America – History

8)  Man vs. Wild – Discovery

9)  Pawn Stars – History

10) Futurama – Comedy
