If you haven’t seen this show yet, what are you waiting for? I could watch this show all day long – and I typically do. It applies to everything. I’m no stranger to Office trivia, either. My friends and I once came in second place, and I even had Melora Hardin (who plays Jan Levinson) share a Cameo as our team holiday gift last year. The obsession to this docustyle comedy is very real. Steve Carell is a gem and the best episode is Dinner Party, hands down (Season 4, Episode 9). If you’re looking for a laugh, press play.
The first rule of Gilmore Girls is that we don’t talk about the revival. Ever. Pretend it never happened. Cool? Okay. Gilmore Girls takes place in suburban Connecticut where the protagonists Rory and her mother Lorelai deal with the antics of their charming (and a little crazy) town of Stars Hollow, and with Lorelai’s troubled (read: affluent) past. I love this show and before it came on Netflix, I purchased the box set of all 7 seasons on DVD. My favorite episode is season 6, episode 13, even though I’m very much Team Jess.
Set in New York City, this drama debuted in the late aughts and quickly captured the hearts of basically every teenage girl. It’s about a bunch of rich teenagers and their “problems,” made even more dramatic with cash and all of them being incredibly good looking. Back in the day, my best friend and I used to make plans to work on history class projects and 9 times out of 10 it would result in us ordering Dominos and watching Gossip Girl. Not much has changed, and the show is still a guilty pleasure, especially if you love fashion. Blair’s wedding day makeup is still my favorite look, burned into my brain. You know you love me – xoxo.
This show is all too real and hilariously so. Despite not being a mom myself, I’ve laughed so hard at Catherine Reitman’s antics as Kate on the show as she navigates re-entering the workforce alongside her friends Anne (played by Dani Kind) and Juno Rinaldi (Frankie). I can’t wait til season 4 comes on Netflix on May 6th.
Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein play a number of characters in what could best be described as a sketch show, set in Portland, Oregon. If you’re a regular reader of the blog, you know I love Portland. Brownstein and Armisen’s portrayal of Toni and Candace is my favorite – long live the Feminist Bookstore.
GENRE: Political Dramas
I really didn’t expect to get sucked into this political drama. First of all, while I enjoyed Scandal (before it got … insane), I assumed I wasn’t interested in political TV shows. WRONG. I spent my entire holiday break in December devouring all 5 seasons of this show. To give you some context on the obsession, each season has 20+ 43 minute episodes. Let that sink in. Elizabeth McCord is a goddess and without spoiling too much of the show, I wish she was our president.
