Ok I know spring is coming and we all want to get up and enjoy the outdoors but before it’s officially allergy season, I want you to take some time to take in these shows.
These are shows that have been vetted by only me, admittedly, but you know I know TV and you know I wouldn’t advise you to check them out unless I actually felt confident about it.
If you haven’t watched or have not been watching these shows then I’m telling you to use your time to get into them and I promise you won’t be disappointed.
Good Girls follows three women down on their luck and looking to take action to change that. Starring Christina Hendricks (Mad Men), Mae Whitman (Parenthood) and Retta (Parks and Recreation) Good Girls has three central story lines that intertwine with this trio at the core. The stories only get more entertaining as the first season finds its’ feet and the second season is set up to have these ladies find themselves deeper in the mix of the circumstance they’ve found themselves in.
Roswell: New Mexico
I mean…if you haven’t seen the original Roswell series then I have to recommend you go back and watch that first (it was only three seasons so you fly through it no problem lol). If you’re going to ignore me, like I’d assume the majority of you will do anyway then just dive right in to Roswell: New Mexico, the CW’s reboot to the cult classic. The story follows three aliens in their 20s-30s who have to navigate their way through trying to appear human while dealing with human emotions (like looooove) and alien interventions (so many powers). There is obviously a love story at the core of the narrative, thanks to another main cast mate, Liz Ortecho and the tension and passion that unfolds is real good. Of all my recommendations here, this is the one that I know will not resonate with everyone but just give it a try. If you love a good CW show this is your jam, I promise.
Parks & Recreation
It is actually nuts to me how many people told me they don’t watch this show. If you’re a fan of The Office then you need to get into Parks & Recreation. The show stars Amy Poehler as Leslie Knope, a wide-eyed local parks director. Knope leads her diverse team of misfits through projects and personal triumphs and failures with a feel-good, comical tone that rivals that of The Office’s Michael Scott. The best part is that Parks & Rec is available right now on Prime Video (CA and USA) so if you’re ready to dedicate yourself to six seasons of pure bliss and laugh out loud comedy, then this show is for you.
UGH Happy Endings was the one that got away. It was like a blend of Friends and improv comedy night at your local theater but oh my goodness did it make you laugh. With an all-star cast including Damon Wayans Jr., Elisha Cuthbert and Adam Pally this show was ahead of it’s time and was canceled after three seasons. When Netflix first launched the show was back on there and met with such praise that fans petitioned to bring it back for a revival. AGAIN AHEAD OF IT’S TIME. That never came to fruition but the show did find it’s new home on Prime Video (CA and USA) so if you haven’t had a chance to watch it, and you’re only going to watch one recommendation from this post, WATCH THIS SHOW. Like I said, it’s three seasons and will leave you in stitches.
