Watch This

I have managed to watch more TV this summer than I do during the school year, even though I don’t watch it while my kids are awake because I apparently don’t bother with kid-friendly programming. Anyway, I’ve been recommending a few shows to anyone who will listen, so I thought I’d put it out there on the Internet.

Of course if you haven’t watched already, get you some Hulu and binge Veronica Mars. Then message me so we can process all our feeeelings about it.

I also treated myself to Killing Eve on Hulu, which is occasionally gory/violent but also fascinating.

Now I’m watching Four Weddings and a Funeral and it’s an absolute delight.

My best treat on Netflix has been Friends from College. It’s truly so good! I adore Fred Savage (had a crush on him back in The Wonder Years days) and the show starts good but then gets better. I watched the winery episode twice and I NEVER do that. It’s LOL funny but not in a sitcom laugh track kind of way. 

Of course I’d be remiss not to mention Fleabag again (on Amazon prime) because it’s still my favorite blend of quirky humor and awkwardness. Brilliant writing, acting, and costuming. Season 2 was everything I hope for in a show.

Outlander is on Netflix now, so if you’re looking for a sexy historical drama, look no further than the hunky Scottish Jamie, who's single-handedly giving gingers sex appeal. 

If you haven’t watched Longmire on Netflix, now is the time. A crime drama with a great blend of episodic and over-arching mystery plot, plus an excellent cast with several Native American actors.

After making my way sloooowly through all the seasons for Father Brown, I’m venturing into Midsomer Murders. I love a low key British crime drama! Speaking of which, of you haven’t watched Luther, you’re missing out on excellent crime drama PLUS Idris Elba and your life is sad.

Any shows I haven’t mentioned but shouldn’t miss? Do tell.


  1. I just finished reading the Killing Eve book - I am dying to see the show! I recommend Workin' Moms - it's a tv show from here in Canada and Netflix has the first 2 seasons, with the 3rd to be added late this month. I flew through the 2 seasons and am kicking myself for not watching it sooner. It's raunchy and hilarious.

  2. The first season of the OA and Marvelous Mrs. Maisel!

  3. Wow, we have the same taste in shows - almost to a T!
