It's not on anymore, but I remember my mom adored Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman, and it was somehow one of the few shows she deemed OK for us to watch. I wasn't supposed to watch Friends, but this pioneer woman show was mom-approved.
My mom also got into The Hills and Gossip Girl, which were both big for me when I was in college and my first few years out. I was shocked she got into them but happy — it definitely introduced a whole new topic for us to connect over and gossip about whenever I was home or we talked on the phone.
