Classy TV

Heidi Shenk "guilty pleasures" "tv"

We don't watch a lot of tv, but when we do, we like to class it up a bit. No, I'm not talking about Downton Abbey (yes, we do watch that too, and yes, it's totally classy). I'm talking about Moonshiners. Seriously. There is nothing that says classy better than reality tv shows that require subtitles in order for the viewers to understand English.

For those of you that aren't in the know, Moonshiners is only one of the best shows out there. It encompasses all sorts of things that are right down our alley. We like to home brew, they make moonshine (ok, maybe one is legal and the other isn't). We love a good laugh, the show is pretty funny. We're a bit obsessed with history related stuff, and there's plenty of that too.

The general premise of the show is that it follows a few Appalachian moonshiners in their attempts to make moonshine. At the same time, the show follows the local police authorities in their attempts to catch moonshiners. Ah, good stuff!

Here's a little glimpse of my favorite characters Jim Tom and Tickle.

I mean, how can you not like a guy with that sort of name? And the box of crap part? Andrew and I died. Died! We almost fell off the couch from laughing.

Do you have any guilty pleasure tv shows?
