I have a confession… I am a TV Junkie! I have had a lot more free time on my hands after work at night I have been watching a lot of tv. I know, I know… why not work out or read or clean or something productive? The last few years have been so stressful and hectic that I am just thankful for some down time when I don’t HAVE to think or do or make decisions around the clock so I am veggin’ out on some tv shows. Ok, now that I have explained myself let’s get on to the good part…
What shows have I completed?
Series that I have watched every episode and loved the entire series:
Dawson’s Creek – The teenage love circle that makes you want to go back to high school!
One Tree Hill – Who doesn’t have a crush on Lucas AND Nathan Scott? And who doesn’t want to be B-Davis? The series will make you feel like these are your best friends from high school and you will cry with them, laugh with them, hate them, love them, and forever want to be a Tree Hill.
Gossip Girl – The mystery does finally unfold if you can hang until the end. The inside of the upper Manhattan teenager’s lives. The plot twists and turns with a little bit of romance in between.
90210 – a little more modern version or One Tree Hill and Gossip Girl combined featured in California. It is includes the old 90210 characters through their children.
Flashpoint – a Canadian show about a Crisis Response Unit that handles hostage situations. A lot of psychology techniques used in this show which is cool to learn from if you deal with people on a daily basis.
Dexter – This series is a twisted and weird series about a guy who kills serial killers. It’s a dark show, but addicting.
Army Wives – Gives you some perspective on the lives of military families, but the potential for the family/community that can be gained from those familiar with the process. Also deepens your respect for those who are fighting for our freedom every day.
Private Practice – A spin off from Grey’s Anatomy that was probably better than Grey’s for those seasons that it was on.
Friday Night Lights – a sports fan might like even this drama series and the comeback of the Dillon High Panthers based off of the movie. As if you needed more than Tim Riggins as a reason to watch this show, you’ve got Layla, Tammy Taylor, Coach Taylor, Julie and Matthew.
What shows am I watching?
Grey’s Anatomy – this is long time running series about Meredith Grey who has a history in the Seattle Grace hospital because of her mother and the affair with the Chief. Interns turn to Residents that turn to Doctors and partners of the hospital. Dramatic medical cases and the drama among the residents makes for a great show. There are seasons and some episodes that drag a little.
Scandal – Need I say more, Olivia Pope. I am OBSESSED with this show. A gladiator twisted in an affair with the president of the United States is a super bad lady that you definitely don’t want to mess with. You must watch this series from the first season!
The Voice – I like this show because I like music, I like the judges, I like the concept. See my previous blog post.
House of Cards – Kevin Spacey runs the show on this Netflix Original. I guess with Scandal (see above) and State of Affairs (see below) it just seems like another government show. And yet it does deal with some similar plots, but I sat straight up one day when I saw the ending of an episode because I was not expecting the turn in the plot.
State of Affairs – Featuring Katherine Heigl. She is in the CIA and it shows a lot of what is happening with the US and the terrorist attacks happening in the world today. It is obviously not true to the people and situations, but depicting how the government seeks out information and details.
Nashville – a show about the music industry and the twists and turns through money, jealousy and love affairs. Love Connie Britton from Friday Night Lights TV series and she does a great job in this show too. Still need a reason to watch it? Deacon Claybourne played by Chip Esten.
Hart of Dixie – just a simple show about a city girl living in the country. This show kind of reminds me of myself since I long to be in the city always!
Series that I watch but don’t always LOVE it:
How to Get Away With Murder – I think with Shonda trying to write three shows back to back on one night she drags some of this show out, but the beginning and endings of the seasons have been on point and edge of the seat kind of episodes.
Now it is your turn…What shows do you suggest I watch?
I have gotten suggestions about the following:
– Breaking Bad
– Once Upon a Time
– Gilmore Girls
