What I'm Watching

One thing I hate about TV seasons are all the dumb hiatuses they take. I mean some shows don't come back until April. April people! I know it's almost March, but Grey's Anatomy has been off air forever. I don't get it. I'll need to watch a recap episode just to remember what happened months ago in the same season. Anyone know why shows do this? I've often forgotten all about shows when this happens and never watch them again.

At least there's plenty of great shows to keep me going and some of my favorites too! Here's what's on my DVR and Netflix Queue.

I’ve loved this show from the very beginning and I am so excited it’s back. Kevin Bacon is awesome and I like the new cast members that have been added this season. I don’t think that season 2 is as thrilling as its first season, but I am still enjoying the story, but I wish it would pick up some speed. It looks like next week's episode will finally take off, but time will tell.

Are you guys watching American Idol? If not, you need to. Harry Connick, Jr is amazing! My husband and his family have watched the show since the first season (except last year with Nikki Minaj, she was a mess) so naturally, I watch the show now too. I’m so happy to have Jennifer Lopez back as well, I love how sweet she is and she gives a lot of great feedback to the artists. However, Harry takes the show! He is so musically educated and has a great personality. I would watch the show for him alone. He is hilarious, charming, and honest without being mean. I hope he stays on for future seasons with the show. I don’t have any favorites yet for the season, but a few of them are beginning to stand out to me.

Hands down, Downton Abbey one of my favorite shows ever. I can’t wait for Shirley McClaine’s guest appearance, she is a hoot! I enjoy all the barbs between the grandmothers as they fight about which country has the upper hand. So for, I really like where this season is going and the storylines of all the characters. Lots of twists and interesting events are happening at every corner and I absolutely love all the cleverness in the dialogue. I just wish each season was a few episodes longer and that I didn’t have to wait so long between seasons.

I started watching Dexter a few months ago and I’m on the last season now. I’m trying to draw it out since one it’s over it’s over. So far I don’t care for the storyline and where’s it’s headed for the finale. I really hate what they’ve done with Deb, I was finally beginning to really like her! The show is great and I love that there’s not a lot of lull episodes in the seasons. I must say that season 5 with Lumen (guest star Julist Stiles) has been my favorite season of them all.

House of Cards is amazing! I didn’t think I would like it since I’m not very political (or at least do not think of myself like that), but I was enthralled with the first episode and flew through the first season in just a few days. The full second season was released this past weekend, and although I haven’t started it yet (we were busy and out and about all weekend) it is burning a hole in my Netflix account. Luckily, no spoilers have been posted on Facebook, but so many of my friends were posting about how crazy the new season is. I can’t wait to watch it!
