Yes, I do watch too much TV.
20 CURRENTLY-AIRING TV SHOWS
is one of the harder shows to pin one genre on—I'd categorize it more as a dark-comedy-parody-musical-drama. You should watch it.
is the odd one out with the several superhero shows I watch. Though the sci-fi superpowers are the basis of the show, it's told as a sort of film noir crime show, with an added bonus of car lifting and mind control.
JANE THE VIRGIN
is not just a drama, it's a soap opera parody! It's based off of a real Venezuelan telenovela and plays with common soap opera tropes as well as a hilarious romantic Latin narrator.
is a brilliantly different sci-fi thriller show, not to mention it films all over the world so I get to travel to a million different places without leaving the comfort of my own home.
is of course the latest sci-fi craze. This show completely embraces the 80s aesthetic, which speaks to my 80s-music-loving heart.
THE GOOD PLACE
is a very recent new favorite, and as a devotee of The Office, Parks and Recreation, and 30 Rock, it feels good to have a really great NBC sitcom in my life again.
ORANGE IS THE NEW BLACK
is a classic Netflix show, probably the first one I watched. I haven't caught up on the recent season, though, so no spoilers!
HOW TO GET AWAY WITH MURDER
is part of ABC's TGIT line-up of Shonda Rhimes' shows, and though I've only ever gotten into this one, I can't say it doesn't make my Thursday nights better.
JANE THE VIRGIN
are all on The CW. Evidently, not all CW
shows suck...I'm just as surprised as you are.
THE HANDMAID'S TALE
is the reason I got Hulu this past summer, and it was absolutely worth it.
UNBREAKABLE KIMMY SCHMIDT
is totally that Netflix show that you just can't help watching the entire season at once when it comes out, and then complain that it won't come back for another year.
is what I'm currently binging/trying to catch up on. Thanks, Dad, for letting me use your Amazon Prime account.
AMERICAN CRIME STORY
is a show I'll always weirdly attach memories to being abroad. I watched it in Italy because it wasn't available on Netflix US at the time, and I figured I'd take advantage of Italian Netflix.
THIS IS US
wasn't on my radar at all until I got Hulu. It's that show I totally did not mean to get invested in, but here I am.
is the best show to stream because the Comedy Central website lets you fast-forward through commercials. It's 22 minutes of pure joy.
is my love-hate relationship show. I've been watching since high school, and even though I criticize its recent writing and characterization to no end, I'll always end up catching up on the latest season.
MAKING A MURDERER
really goes to show how late to the game I always am with new popular TV; I ended up finally getting around to it 2 years after it premiered.
MASTER OF NONE
is the show I'm most behind on, with a grand total of 2 episodes watched, but I can already tell I'm going to enjoy it.
is one of the oldest shows still on the air that I watch, even though it's new to me. Hands-down my favorite show I binged this summer.
