This week, I am dedicating my weekly post to TV shows. I have a Netflix account, and lately I’ve been enjoying just a little bit too much time laying in bed and catching up on shows. Since I’m finally on spring break this week and I won’t be doing much other than relaxing and watching said shows, I thought I’d give you guys a little taste of my favorites.
1. Downton Abbey
Set in the early 1900s in the United Kingdom, Downton Abbey follows the comings and goings of the Crawleys (British royalty) and their help. If I had been told a year ago that I would be feverishly watching a PBS series, I wouldn’t have believed it. But now, after watching the first two seasons in a matter of weeks, I am so upset to learn that I will have to wait until 2013 to watch the third season. Ugh. I don’t know how I will make it.
2. Modern Family
I don’t think I have ever seen a show funnier than this one. Sofia Vergara and Eric Stonestreet could keep me laughing for hours. If you haven’t seen this show, you need to watch it now.
Okay. I guess I shouldn’t have necessarily put this show in my “Six Things I Love” post, but I don’t have a “Six Guilty Pleasures” list yet. That expression you see on Emily VanCamp’s face? Yeah, that’s pretty much the only face she’s capable of making. Her consistently-stoic appearance aside, however, and this show has completely sucked me in. There’s just something so satisfying about watching the lives of people far, far wealthier than you disintegrate into complete shambles, and Revenge delivers a lot of it.
4. The Bachelor
Once again, it’s too bad I don’t have a guilty pleasure list, because this would definitely be number one. For those of you who watched The Bachelor this season, were you not ridiculously pissed when Ben chose Courtney? I mean, we all knew it was gonna happen, but that doesn’t make it any better. And, if there’s no one reading this who secretly (or not so secretly, in my case) likes The Bachelor(ette), then I’m sorry that I wasted your time with this section of the post. (But I know you guys are out there. Don’t lie.)
I really love this show, and I can’t quite put my finger on why. It could be the fact that Erika Christensen’s character is so easy to relate to, or that I’m just a sucker for family dramas. Who knows. What I do know is that I’m going to be really upset if this show doesn’t get picked up for a fourth season.
6. Property Brothers
Let me just get this out there: I’m obsessed with HGTV. I can honestly say that the only show I won’t watch on that channel is Holmes Inspection (Mike Holmes is just an annoying tool). This show is easily my favorite though. It doesn’t get much better than watching two hot men renovate a house, unless, of course, it was my house they were renovating.
What are some of your favorite TV shows at the moment?
Holly, not Hollie
