What I'm Watching

Wednesday, October 25, 2017

Last month I had a major surgery that I'm still recovering from, so I've had a lot of time to catch up on my shows and check out some new ones. I usually wait until a series is on Netflix and binge watch it because I get so impatient waiting for answers to all of the questions I have as I watch every week. But lately, I've been doing things a little differently and have been watching shows weekly as they air on live TV. I've found that it's actually more exciting and suspenseful waiting for the next episode to see what's going to happen. I kind of like it!

Today, I wanted to share with you what I've been watching lately.

Law & Order True Crime: The Menendez Murders - I'm a huge true crime fan and have always been intrigued by this case so when I heard this was coming out I knew I had to watch it. I like this series because I think they do a great job at showing all sides of the story. I often find that with shows like this they are usually either extremely biased or show only one person's point of view, so I like that with this show we get to hear from several different people involved in this case. The actors do a great job and are very believable, sometimes I forget that this is a scripted show because it feels so real. If you're in to true crime I would highly recommend this show. All episodes are on Hulu so you can get caught up!

The Mindy Project - So this is funny because The Office is my favorite TV show of all time, but I never really cared for Mindy's character, Kelly Kapoor. I was looking for suggestions for a new show to watch a while back and a lot of people suggested this knowing that I was a fan of The Office. For the longest time, I refused to watch this show because I thought her character would be too similar to Kelly. I finally gave in and started watching it and I'm so glad that I did because it's quickly become one of my favorite shows. It's a nice change from her role on The Office and I find Mindy's character to be so loveable. I'm actually kinda sad that this is the final season. This show has it all - romance, drama, comedy, so if you haven't watched it yet, I suggest checking it out. All seasons are also available on Hulu for you to stream.

Superstore - The executive producer for this show was a writer for The Office (do you see a pattern here? LOL) so I had high expectations when this show first came out. I can honestly say that it has lived up to every single one of them. While Superstore isn't exactly like The Office, it gives off a similar vibe and has a wide variety of personalities and roles just like The Office did. Similar to The Mindy Project, this show has comedic, romantic, and dramatic moments and I love how they cover serious moments in a comedic manner without coming off tacky or overdoing it. This is one of the few shows that makes me laugh out loud and always cheers me up if I'm having a bad day. This show can also be streamed on Hulu if you are interested in checking it out.

Riverdale - I was bored one day and decided to check this show out on Netflix. I was instantly hooked and I'm pretty sure I finished the entire first season in 2 days. This show is so suspenseful and always leaves me on the edge of my seat every week. Season 2 just started and I already have so many questions. A few of my friends also watch this show and we are constantly texting each other while watching each episode coming up with theories of our own and asking one another questions. I'm really curious how this season is gonna turn out and I can't wait to find out more. If you're interested in checking Riverdale out, you can watch season 1 on Netflix and new episodes are also up on The CW website.

Eric & Jessie - I watched this show years ago when it first came out and was excited to see that it was coming back after 3 years! I'm not a huge fan of reality TV, but I love this show. I think Eric and Jessie are the cutest couple and I love their relationship. I really like how supportive they are of one another and the fact that they are each other's biggest fans, plus their kids are super cute! I look forward to Wednesday because every week I go over to my mom's house and we watch this together!

And last but not least...

Football - I am a huge football fan and I love the New England Patriots. Every week I make sure to watch the Patriots game, but I also try to watch every Thursday Night Football game as well regardless of who is playing. Sometimes I'll even sneak in a couple of other games on Sundays in between the Patriots game. My boyfriend is also a Patriots fan so football is something that we can bond over and enjoy together. I love lounging around on Sundays with our favorite snacks cheering on our team. I can't wait to see where this season takes us!

Go Pats!

I'm always looking for new things to watch so if you have any suggestions feel free to leave them in the comments below. I know I'm looking forward to Stranger Things season 2 in just a few days. I can't wait to watch it!

  4. The Mindy Project was one of my favorites to watch! I started Shameless recently and started to binge watch it over the summer, a very vulgar show but so funny and real. I wish I had more time between school and work to actually finish either show!
