With baseball now in the postseason, and sadly coming to an end soon, Netflix is coming back into my life. All spring and summer, I’ve been watching the Royals play, nearly every night. And my poor Netflix account has been collecting dust, as it were. Over the last few weeks, though, I’ve been getting back into Netflix. Today, I have a couple shows to share with you for Thursday’s Things (today isn’t Thursday’s Three, because I only have two!)
I like to watch one or two shows at a time, it’s hard for me to simultaneously watch more than that. I recently finished Bloodline, which was strangely addicting. I have two shows, now, that I’ve recently began watching on Netflix, that I just can’t get enough of. Now, both of these shows have been around for a bit, so don’t judge me for jumping on the series’ late. First, Scandal. I have finally started watching Scandal, and can’t get enough. As of last night, I am 4 episodes into season 2. I don’t know how I didn’t find this show sooner. I love the politics, the drama, and Kerry Washington. I am in love with this show, and can’t look away when it’s on. It’s smart and elegantly crafted, and I love learning a little more about each character every episode. Second, Parenthood. Thanks so much to my sister, who is watching this show, and wanted to watch it while I was visiting last weekend… I have watched parts of season 4 and 5, and now, must start at the beginning and catch up, because I’m fully invested now. I have heard people talking about watching Parenthood, and just by the name, kind of assumed it was some sort of reality TV show following parents, or something. I didn’t realize it was a series. Just about the only show I watch week-to-week is The Big Bang Theory, which I really enjoy, but the drama and intelligence in Scandal, and the heart-string-pulling relationships in Parenthood give me something that The Big Bang Theory, as a 30 minute comedy, just can’t.
Some of my other recent favorites are House of Cards, The Fall, Sherlock, Orange is the New Black. I’d LOVE for you to share your favorite shows with me, because once I binge watch my way through Scandal and Parenthood, I’ll need new shows!!
