5 TV Shows You Must Watch

March 14, 2014

If there's one thing you should know about me it's that I love TV. I love everything from Keeping Up With The Kardashians to Live! With Kelly and Michael (formerly Regis). Yes, I actually watch that show because I'm actually a 70 year old grandma. Anyway, my point is, I really love me a good TV show. My favorite thing in the world to do is curl up in comfy clothes, eat a pint of Ben & Jerry's and binge-watch some Netflix. I can't be the only one who loves to do this! So next time you're planning a night in here are five shows I can't get enough of:

1. Scandal

Over spring break, I sat down and watched every episode of scandal on Netflix and Hulu plus. I had heard SO much talk about the show that I finally caved and decided I had to check it out. Thank god  I did! I really don't know what I was doing with my life before I started watching this show. That sounds melodramatic but it's really not because the show is that good. 

2. Parks and Rec

If you have a dry, sarcastic sense of humor (like me!) and love pop culture references in your comedy, this is the perfect show for you.  I binged-watch this show over the summer and some of my all-time favorite jokes come from this show. Without it, we wouldn't have Galentine's day! I'm a huge Amy Poehler fan, so it doesn't hurt that she's the star and the brains behind the show. Go watch it, if you haven't already, it's just hilarious!

3. Revenge 

If you love Scandal, you'll probably love Revenge too. It's a similar idea--totally different plot line, but lots and lots of drama! Gotta love the drama! What I love about this show is that when it starts to get boring and kind of ridiculous the writers pull some magic and BOOM! It gets really good again and I can't stop watching.  This is one show that I love watching just to see what drama and plot twist comes up next! Also, I really want Emily's double infinity tattoo...it might be my next one!

4. Modern Family 

Oh modern family, how I love thee! I own every single episode of Modern Family. Yes, every single one. I think I've seen each episode at least five times and it still never gets old! The day it became syndicated on USA was probably the best day of my life. Is that pathetic? Regardless, I'm obsessed with this show! It's hilarious, earnest and just warms my heart. Somehow, the writers always manage story lines that are funny and entertaining but still realistic. It really feels like it's your family!



5. How I Met Your Mother 

 This show is kind of a sensitive topic for me right now because there are only 3 episodes left! Only 3! I started watching this show when I was in sixth grade...and I'm now a sophomore in college. Crazy! After nine seasons, HIMYM will always hold a special place in my heart. Yes, it can be cheesy at times but that's exactly why I love it so much. Every season (except the current one, I believe) is on Netflix, so go have a serious power marathon if you've never seen it! I will be bawling my eyes on March 31st when the series finale airs. I'm tearing up just thinking about it!

Ok, now that I've shared what I love watching right now I have a challenge for you! In the comments, pitch me your favorite show and why you love it so much! I'm looking for another show to binge-watch on Netflix so sell me on one! Also, feel free to chat about how much you also love any of the shows I listed here. I'd love to discuss theories/rave about how wonderful it is!

  1. I love this list! I did the same with Scandal over winter break - it only took me 3 days to get through all of the eps and I was a little traumatized (in a good way? all I could think was, "poor Huck!") so I didn't watch anything for a few days after! Dreading the end of HIMYM, but I love that the mother is Cristin Miliotti. Parks & Rec wins EVERYTHING in my book. I cried so much when Ann & Chris left.


    1. I know exactly what you mean, scandal get's really intense! I wasn't expecting it to be so graphic! Oh and are Ann and Chris off of parks and rec for good?! I don't know what I'll do without them!

  2. I recently started walks Parks and Rec and I'm obsessed! I've watched all the seasons on Netflix already. Oh and Scandal is definitely the best show out there right now.


    1. Haha seriously parks and rec never fails to make me laugh out loud! and yes I agree 100%! Scandal has no competition.

  3. The first show I binge watched when I finally got Netflix was HIMYM. I can't believe there's only a few episodes left in the series! Scandal is on my to-watch list. I've had so many people rave about it to me that I think I'll have to check it out. Right now I'm binge watching Breaking Bad, since I somehow never managed to watch it when it was actually airing.

    1. Breaking bad is on my list next! I watched the first few episodes and had some difficulty getting into it, but everyone raves about it so I'm determined to watch it all!

    2. It took a little while for me to get into it, too. It's definitely a super intense show! But the cinematography and the character development is pretty incredible, and totally makes the show worth watching as time goes on.

  4. I know it's seriously too late but I as started watching Revenge and like it a lot!
