I thought I’d do an update of shows I’m watching currently and really enjoying. I did one of these, I think, back in the fall. I talked about American Horror Story Roanoke Nightmare, (which I was enjoying at that time… however, I ended up kinda hating it as it went on) along with a few other shows that were on at the time.
I don’t really find too many shows that I take an interest in. I’m really into “reality tv” and I like mystery or scary type shows. I like comedies, but I don’t find many comedy television shows that I particularly like. I think I’m more into movies than I am into television shows. However, once in a while a show (or shows) come along that I just can’t get enough of.
*If you’re a fan of any shows listed, you may not want to read further if you’re not all caught up, as this post may contain spoilers.*
This is Us : Oh. This. Show. I started watching this show because a few people on my Twitter feed were talking about what a great show it was. I was a little skeptical because it’s an NBC show… and as I mentioned, I’m not really into network shows. I figured, how good could it be? I didn’t know anything about it. All I knew was it had Mandy Moore (whom I knew way back in the day when she was still singing and also in A Walk To Remember) and Justin Hartley who I used to watch on Passions waaay back in the day.
Once I sat down and watched the first episode of This Is Us… I was hooked! I watched it with my husband and he didn’t care for it. (Don’t know what’s wrong with him) but I was all about it. The show has little twists and is written so beautifully. Each week I’m laughing one minute and crying the next. I love every single character on that show… which is rare, there is usually someone to hate on a show, right?
Last weeks episode killed me. I haven’t cried that much in a long time. While I don’t think I have a favorite on that show, as I love each character… deep down, I think William was my favorite. I loved his story, from the moment they introduced us to him. Learning about his past and how hard it was giving Randall up, the drug abuse, his lost dreams of making music and his love of poetry and writing. I loved his character so much! I wanted nothing more than to have some kind of miracle happen for him and to cure his cancer. I knew the day was coming… but I didn’t realize it was going to be last weeks episode. OMG! The tears would not stop, I literally couldn’t breathe from crying so much and my eyes were so puffy and swollen the next day.
That episode broke my heart. Truly. Just thinking about it makes me sad. 😦 I am so happy I decided to watch this show, as it has hooked me! I am so invested in these characters and watching the story unfold. It’s a show that makes you think, makes you feel, it’s so powerful. So so good! I would definitely recommend checking this show out if you haven’t.
The Vampire Diaries : This show has two more episodes left and then it’s over for good. It’s bittersweet. I’ve been a fan of this show since season one back when it started. It was my favorite show for a few years. Somewhere along the way, the writing started to … well… suck and the story- lines were becoming dull and lackluster. I hated where they were taking some of the characters story-lines and developments. I still watched… but it was losing me. I finally stopped watching last season. Season 7, I think? After Elena, (Nina Dobrev) decided to call it quits, I was pretty much done as well. Of course, since the show is ending I decided to watch this season to see how they were going to end it. This was my favorite show at one time. I needed to see if they were going to give it any justice.
I’m sorta disappointed, still. The story-lines are just… ridiculous. If this wasn’t the final season, I’d probably skip it again. A lot of the main cast members are gone. Elena, Jeremy, they killed Tyler (a little pissed about that) However, a few things have sparked my interest. I loved the love story between Bonnie and Enzo. I was so happy that Bonnie was so happy, finally! She was happy with Jeremy for a while back then… but there was something about Enzo and Bonnie that I loved. They had great chemistry together…. until the writers killed him. *sigh*
I don’t know how I feel about Stefan being human again. I do know that I already can tell that Stefan and Elena don’t end up together. That pisses me off. They were endgame since day one! I’ve always hated Elena and Damon together…. I hate Stefan and Caroline together even more. Those two are so painful to watch. Zero chemistry.
Still I’m curious to see how this all ends. It appears that Katherine is coming back one last time. That’s exciting.
Vanderpump Rules : I’ve watched this show since day one. It seems to get better and better each season. When the show first came back for this season, James and LaLa played a big part. It seems like as the episodes went on their parts were lesser and lesser. I’m totally okay with that. I don’t like either one them. James needs to grow up and LaLa… she just seems like that “friend” who’s not really your friend… who talks shit about you behind your back and tries to sleep with your man.
Everyone else I really like. My favorite is and has always been Queen Stassi. I love her sarcastic, bitchy comments. People give her shit because she’s the “villain” on the show. It’s a reality show… they need to create some drama to make you want to watch. I feel like that’s a part of her personality turned up. I feel like they all have some kind of “tv personalities” In any case, I love her either way.
It was nice to see Jax apologize to Stassi for cheating on her when they were dating and doing some awful, shitty, things to her back then. I know he was drunk, but I feel like he meant it. Hopefully he did. While he was a shitty boyfriend to her, I secretly have always had a soft spot for them. I know! He was a horrible person to her and she deserves waaay better…. just that tiny little part of me adored them together and wished it worked out differently for them. I do love him with Brittany! I think she seems so sweet and it appears he’s grown up a lot and taking their relationship seriously. She seems to be just what he needs.
Bates Motel: Again, another show I’ve been watching since day one. I’m so sad I learned this is the final season of Bates Motel! 😦 *major sad faces* I was upset last season when they killed Norma. (now I see it was to tie everything up for this season since it’s ending) I loved Norma and Romero together. I really wanted them to explore it more and watch it unfold.
I’m curious to see how this will end. We know from the movies Psycho… Norman survives, of course. I just hope he doesn’t kill his brother Dylan. I’ve been worried about that since early on. I really like this show and the backstory we get on Norman. It explains him and his behavior to us and I really like that.
This show is really good!! I wish it had another season… ugh! I hate when really good shows end so soon. It’s hard for me to find shows I like, so when I do, I don’t wanna give them up. 🙂
What are some of your favorite shows at the moment? Any shows you think I should check out? Let me know!
Thanks for reading! 🙂
