What are you watching? Seriously…I need a show to get hooked on.
We’ve never watched Downton Abbey or Game of Thrones. We’re not going anywhere near anything with a Kardashian in it. As much as we loved them first and even second time around, we’re sick of reruns of Modern Family, Dragon’s Den, Seinfeld and The Big Bang Theory.
One of our favourites – House of Lies – just ended for good and another fave – Halt and Catch Fire – won’t be back until October.
We like Antiques Roadshow and some of the home renovation and sales shows, but I won’t watch programs about the homes of the rich and ridiculous because they just make me mad. The opulence is over the top and, in my opinion, wasteful. Some real estate shows are good, like Property Brothers and Masters of Flip but one episode of Love it or List It was enough for me. It was too cheesy.
But we have also liked some shows that are considered cheddary. The Mentalist was a favourite, although many saw it as a throwback to old detective series. We tried to watch some newer action shows and found them unappealing. We’re funny that way.
So please hit me with your favourites in the comment section below. We’re willing to start from the beginning of a series and binge-watch until we catch up. What we’re not willing to do is hear, “you need to watch 3 or 4 episodes and then it gets good!” Life is too short. Go big or go home!
