What Should I Watch Next?

Hi, my name is Lindsay and I am a Netflixaholic. Since I’ve been on maternity leave, I have spent a lot of time with my trusty Netflix. From laying on the couch cuddling my baby, to feeding said adorable baby and getting up in the middle of the night rocking that precious babe, I have needed some serious tv entertainment to get me through. Yep, Netflix has been a saving grace for my sanity these past 12 weeks.

 I might have watched three full seasons of a certain tv show in about a week and a half…and my husband was shocked at how quickly I finished! And now I’m really sad that Parenthood doesn’t have any more new episodes on Netflix yet and I desperately need something else to watch. Oh how I miss crying over eight out of ten episodes of Parenthood. I really identify with Kristina and probably cried every time she did. The show is good, people! Judging from all of the comments on Friday's post a lot of you agree. Can we start a twitter party to discuss the show? #ParenthoodPink Just kidding. Maybe not.

So that’s where you come in! I would love your suggestions on what tv series to watch next. What do you love, what keeps your interest, offer up anything and everything. However, there are a few certain items to consider when offering up your suggestions:

-I have watched the following shows while on maternity leave:
Hart of Dixie
Revenge (rewatched because I already catch it in real time)
Orange is the New Black
Parenthood
Desperate Housewives (well while I was pregnant, strange choice I know!)
Friends (all time favorite show)
Pretty Little Liars (rewatched the first season)

-I’m looking for a feel good show a la Hart of Dixie or Parenthood, I don’t want anything scary.

-I DO NOT like any of the Law & Order shows, especially SVU. It’s really not my deal to watch a show about someone getting raped when I am up in the middle of the night (wow, never thought I would type a sentence like that on my blog – let’s see how many strange web searches bring people to my blog because of that!).

-If you haven't already figured it out, I'm a girly girl. :)


Taking those thoughts into consideration, can you help me find a new tv series to watch? Pretty please? Leave a comment below, tweet me, e-mail me. Whatever. Just send your suggestions. I will be ever so grateful!

  5. There's a new show coming out on The Cw called Reign that is very girly-girl! I also really love Vampire Diaries and it's not very scary. There's a spin-off of that coming in October called The Originals that looks good as well! I'm extremely versatile when it comes to what I watch. I love a bit of everything... from drama (Grey's Anatomy fan here) to grit (Sons of Anarchy Obsessed) to scary darma (love love love my Walking Dead) and even watch some Reality tv when I have some downtime, lol. I need to catch up on last seasons Revenge!!!

  6. The United States of Tara was interesting...not really a girl girl show though. What about Gossip Girl, lots of fashion and ridiculous drama. Ugly Betty is always fun to rewatch for me. And the one show that always makes me feel super normal and together...Bridezillas.

    Happy Netflixing! (PS The gypsy wedding show TLC used to have was my maternity leave guilty pleasure back in the day)

  9. I second the Vampire Diaries...definitely one of my favorites! They have the first 3 seasons on now and they will have the 4th season on Netflix 10/3 :-)

  10. I think Pretty Little Liars has more than 1 season on Netflix. Vampire Diaries is also a guilty pleasure...once you get over the first 4-5 episodes where they are clearly figuring out what direction to take the show, it gets pretty good. Arrested Development is very funny. I've heard good things about Hot in Cleveland (with Betty White), but I've never seen it and am not sure if it is on Netflix. I also really like White Collar --- can't wait for Netflix to have more episodes!

  15. I actually love SVU and Criminal Minds ... but at times they get a little too scary for me. Parenthood is another favorite for sure!

  17. Dance Academy! It's this girly show that follows a group of dancers at an Australian dance academy. Full of teenage drama, but the dancing is beautiful and the accents are awesome! I think they have season 1 and 2 available on Netflix. The episodes are only 30 minutes a piece so you could easliy blazew through them!

  18. The first 2 seasons of ABC's Once Upon a Time are on Netflix now. About fairy tale characters in the modern day world. Ah-mazing! If you catch up soon, the new season will be coming back on ABC soon. :)
