Something New to Love

***Linking up with MamaKat this week: 4.) Something new you’re loving.***

(To all my loyal readers, I’m so sorry I haven’t been posting very much. I’m absolutely drowning over here. I’m shooting for 2-3 times a week until things let up. Thanks for sticking with me!)

I love TV and I’m not ashamed to admit it. Always have, always will. I figure the amount of books I read makes up for my TV and movie watching habits. Right?

I’m in L-O-V-E with these new shows.

Jimmy Fallon on The Tonight Show. Are you watching him? He’s magic. He’s adorable, hilarious and very down-to-earth and classy. His skits are perfection and he interviews the guests like they’re just hanging out. I love, love, love him and his new show!

The Goldbergs. Why aren’t you watching this show??? Especially if you were born in the late 70’s or early 80’s, you will appreciate the nostalgia in this show. Wendi Mclendon-Covey as the mom is THE BEST. Her hair, the way she dresses and talks, the way she mothers. It’s just wonderful. The kids are funny, the dad is a riot and the references to 80’s stuff is fun too.

Brooklyn Nine-Nine. This show slays me! I’ve always been an Andy Samberg fan but this whole crew is hysterical. The jokes are really witty and the characters are all really funny in their own way. Andre Braugher is hysterical as the chief!

The Following. Ok, so it’s not new. I watched it last season too…but damn, it’s so good! Very scary and creepy and intriguing. I love Kevin Bacon.

The Americans. I watched the pilot last year and then we got rid of cable and I forgot about it. Well I’m catching up on Amazon Prime now and it’s awesome. Even though Keri Russell does NOT in any way, shape or form resemble anyone I remember from the 80’s, I still enjoy the show. You kind of forget how tense it was between the U.S. and Russia not so long ago…and the idea of spies is always fascinating. It reminds me a little bit of Alias. But more believable.

House of Cards. I know, I’m late to this party. I’m catching up on season one. I’ve always thought Kevin Spacey was a phenomenal actor and I really like him in this politician role. I’m only on episode four but I really like it.

What do you watch? Do you love any of these shows too?

  1. THANK GOD you finally got on the House of Cards wagon! Now we can talk about how hot Spacey is 🙂

  2. we watch the goldbergs too and LOVE it! sometimes i think i am that mom! 🙂 the other new shows we are watching are mind games and mixology. mixology is funny but the writing is pretty predictable. i love steve zahn and christian slater. however, i don’t really like either of their characters in mind games. the show stresses me out.

  3. I want to check out House of Cards. Hope things lighten up for you soon.

  4. My boys love the goldbergs. They always comment about the hair or clothes and I tell them that was cool back then. They look at me like I’m crazy.

  5. The only show I’ve seen is Jimmy Fallon, and that’s just once in awhile. I can’t seem to stay awake that late. You described him to a tee! Having him on the tonight show freshened and livened things up, Good change!

    I’m not familiar with any except Jimmy Fallon. I’ve watched him a few times but I think I’ll stick with Letterman. I do like Netflix, Hulu, and Vudu. I love managing my programming. Stopping by from mama kats kelley at the road goes ever ever on

  7. Yes! Jimmy Fallon makes me so happy!
