TV Series

Since becoming parents, J and I love to have a show to watch every evening once Coco is asleep. It's our time to relax together after our long and busy days. We cuddle up on the couch with a glass of wine and fly through series, watching one or two episodes every night until we are finished. Our favorite TV series of all time have been (top down) Six Feet Under, Breaking Bad and Homeland. We just started season two of Homeland this week and we are so invested that we actually high five each other when there's a breakthrough; and I can't stop my heart from practically pounding out of my chest during some scenes. It's ridiculous! I hope Homeland goes on for many more seasons, but at the same time it seems like a lot of shows peak at the second or third season and then start to go downhill. (Weeds comes to mind...;) After Homeland, we are planning to start in on Californication and I'd also like to try Big Love (the show, not the practice!;). The Wire never did it for us and neither did Dexter or True Blood. What are your favorite series? We need to keep 'em coming. :)

  1. Isn't it fun to binge watch shows?!

    Here are some of my faves:

    1) Battlestar Galactica - even if you're not into SciFi, its an awesome series. Much more about interpersonal relationships, politics, etc than space stuff.

    2) The Americans - this is a new show on FX but is available on itunes. I love it - KGB spies are embedded as a suburban couple in 1981 DC.

    3) X-Files - I've started rewatching the series recently and forgot how funny it was! The chemistry between the leads is unbeatable.

    Let me know what you think of Big Love - I worked on it for years :)

    1. Okay, that is the second Battlestar Galactica recommendation I've had, so we will have to give it a go. The Americans sounds rad. Totally up my alley. Did you see the movie Other People's Lives? Chilling and serious, but so good. Oh, Scully and Mulder! Good idea to rewatch. I honestly think I could rewatch Six Feet Under, too. Just finding that photo from the opening credits got the theme song going through my head. Flashback to another chapter in my life! Ack. Thank you for the list. I'll get to work on it right away. Will keep you posted on Big Love. ;) xo

  2. definitely battlestar galactica! it is really hard though sometimes to just watch one or two episodes. a few times i remember dave and i staying up until 2 in the morning because we just kept saying "we need to watch just one more episode!" we've also started watching the americans and have really gotten into it. did you ever watch the movie serenity? if you liked it, then check out the series that came before it called firefly. it's only one season i think.

    1. We are so lame! We get seriously tired by 10 and we just have to go to bed. HA! Way to go on staying up until 2. You're rad!! I haven't heard of Serenity or Firefly. We will have to look into those too. Thank you so much!! This is awesome to get all these recommendations. :) xo
