Downton Abbey

Posted on 18, Sep

  Thank goodness for PBS! They are responsible for showing so many good programs. My latest discovery is a British period piece called Downton Abbey. I wasn’t sure if this was worth the investment of purchasing or if I should just rent it or even wait and see if I could catch an episode every now and then but after completing the first chapter, I feverishly had to watch the next and the next and the next until my entire Sunday was consumed by the first season, then I was on to the second season and finally the third. If you’re in the mood for drama with a side of malice and mystery then you’ve got to check this out!

Girls!

Posted on 3, Jun

HBO’s Girls is an addictively good show created and written by Lena Dunham, who also stars. It’s a very real and relevant portrayal of life for a group of twenty-something ladies, each with her own perspective. There are some scandalous and in your face scenes, (so be advised that this is probably not a show that you would want youngsters watching) but there are also lighthearted and some genuinely tender moments. While I love every episode, these are some of my favorites.

Are you looking for a hilarious show to watch? Cougar Town, starring Courtney Cox, is a kooky, funny show that you are sure to enjoy. Co-creator Bill Lawrence, who has had success in other popular television shows such as The Drew Carey Show, Spin City and Scrubs may be regretful about the name of this show, but don’t let that impact your decision to give it a chance. So many of the episodes are enjoyable and a little absurd that it’s difficult to choose my favorite ones, but these are some of my top picks.

I rarely make mistakes in my life. I mean, I don’t mean to brag, but seriously. Since I was born, I’ve done pretty much everything right except for maybe the purchase of an MC Hammer doll when I was seven years old. But it came with a cassette single so, you know, I had my reasons. Anyway, that being said, I am also an extremely busy person. Rarely do I have the same night free every week in order to watch any given television show so I have a bucket list of things I’d like to watch before I die. Since its premiere, AMC’s Breaking Bad has been on this list. I didn’t know much about it at all other than that it starred the dad from FOX’s Malcom in the Middle, he portrayed a high school chemistry teacher who gets cancer, and he starts making meth. But with the great word of mouth it received and then, eventually, all of the award nominations it received, it was a given that it would be watched sooner or later. Once the fifth and final season started this year, I noticed a lot of hoopla on Facebook concerning the episodes. I decided it was time. I was going to watch this Breaking Bad.

The characters are like old friends; you know all their stories and can recite them with ease. Now after a long absence, they’re back but with new stories. Once Upon a Time tells the tale of how our favorite fairy tale characters are unknowing victims trapped between two worlds and need to be saved by the one woman who doesn’t believe in them.

“Man, I Hate High School.”

Posted on 11, Jul

Stephen King once said that he didn’t trust anyone who enjoyed high school, and I have to agree. I mean, obviously, there are certain things you might enjoy. Maybe you had a favorite teacher, or an awesome class where you were lucky enough to learn something that’s actually stuck with you. Maybe you found true love during high school, or struck up a friendship with someone who still has your back to this day. Overall, though, what is there really to like? Freaks and Geeks covers everything you’ve tried hard to forget: being picked on in the locker room, awkward first relationships, even more awkward first break-ups, your parents giving you a hard time by ruining your good times – but watching it is way better (and way funnier) than re-living it.
