If you’re like me, you’ve been through so many shows over the last few weeks. Between Hulu and Netflix, there are good ones, bad ones, and movies that have left you confused or wanting more. Here’s a list of what I’ve been watching.
My usual shows include Good Girls, Grey’s Anatomy, Station 19 and 9-1-1. Clearly I have a love of medical and first responder shows, so if you do too, check them out. I just started The Resident (surprise… another medical drama) and in just two weeks, finished three seasons. From the first scene, I was hooked. It’s full of scandal, laughs, drama, hot doctors and saving lives.
Reality Love Shows
Transitioning off of Love is Blind, I started watching Love Island UK. The newest season features a set of twins, a Connor and a Connagh, two Lukes and a Justin Bieber look alike. Highly recommend. After finishing this one, I checked out Too Hot to Handle, which is similar, but I recommend watching in moderation to keep you from losing your mind. In this one, the contestants are always in the mood, but for every X-rated activity someone participates in, the prize money decreases. Not sure how I feel about this one, but I’m still giving it a chance.
Outside of the 24/7 Pluto TV Degrassi channel, I’ve been watching All American, the Netflix show about an inner city football player who moves across town to play for a rival school. While I loved season 1, season 2 is heading in a completely different direction. Still worth checking it out. Never Have I Ever is a new show about a girl awkwardly attempting to lose her virginity. You’ll laugh, you’ll cringe, you’ll wonder why John McEnroe is narrating, even after he explains it in episode 1.
Movies You Forgot
Relive your youth with a few movies. Stroll down memory lane with John Tucker Must Die, a movie about the high-school “it-guy” who is dating three girls at once. They find out and conjure up a plan for revenge. She’s the Man stars Amanda Bynes posing as her twin brother to join a soccer team, where she’s teammates with Channing Tatum. Enough said. Crazy Rich Asians is always a yes if you’re looking to take a cultural journey to Singapore, laugh and cringe at traditional old ladies for a few hours.
NEW CONCERT ALERT! Documentary meets live Jonas Brothers’ concert, and a look at their latest tour, Happiness Begins. Go behind the scenes with the guys and their families and sing along to every song you never forgot the lyrics to. I’ve never been a fan of The Voice, but I’ve started watching the latest season, and I’m invested. It’s great to have on as you’re working if you need some background music to keep you entertained.
If none of these genres work for you, get to surfing your apps! I’m always looking for something new to watch, so leave me some suggestions. Off to watch this new celebrity Who Wants to Be a Millionaire for now.
Until next time…
