I love Ruby Gettinger. I'll admit it. I was totally skeptical when I got the screener for this new Style channel show (which starts on Sunday). It's a docudrama series about Ruby, a 500ish pound woman, with a love of southern food, trying to lose weight the good old-fashioned way -- by diet and exercise. As a plus-size gal myself, I know this is quite a challenge, but I also wasn't quite sure what to expect from a person who weighs more than 500 pounds. See, all my judging of that size is from that Nip/Tuck episode where the woman was stuck to the couch, the contestants on The Biggest Loser and Celebrity Fit Club, and the recent reports about the world's fattest man getting married and having to be transported in a flatbed. It's no wonder that my perception of weight is so skewed.
There are a million TV channels out there these days, so when summertime comes around, we really have time to explore the vast world of random television programming. While we dig big shows like True Blood and So You Think You Can Dance, it's the more quirky, niche shows that really have us hooked this season, even if their names may garner blank stares from most folks when when we mention them. Below are some shows that may be off your radar but are worth checking out.
