I can never seem to watch anything at the right time when it is on. I also never remember to record anything on DVR which is just plain frustrating I know but thank goodness for the inventions of Hulu, Netflix and Amazon Prime or else I would miss every important show ever in the history of ever! I also like being able to catch up on series I never had a chance to get into. That always makes me happy. There is sometimes nothing better than having a few days of sitting in bed, pigging out and watching a series from start to finish with no interruptions! Now for what shows I am obsessing over this summer…..hold on to your socks everybody:
Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 5 is my new addiction. I never really cared about the New Jersey or New York installments of the Housewives empire. Last season I caught the tail end and happened to see Teresa on Celebrity Apprentice and I actually liked her….on her own show….not so much. Either way I lurve lurve lurve it! I don’t know why I didn’t start watching it sooner. I am generally late to the party when it comes to television shows. I cannot keep up with all of the mind-numbing goodness going on on all of these different channels. I hope that this season brings with it just as much drama and crazy bs and any other season before it because boy do I heart these ladies!
Hemlock Grove is one of the series that Nexflix put out on their own. It is oober good! The series description is “In the shadows of a rusted Pennsylvania steel town, the mangled body of a teenage girl is discovered. As they hunt for a monster among them, rumors mount and many of the eccentric residents become suspects, from the newly arrived gypsy family to the wealthy Godfrey clan. In the twisted world of Hemlock Grove, everyone hides a dark secret.” I really like the characters but was a little disappointed with the season finale. I expected a little more but it wasn’t terrible. I am hoping that the series was popular enough to warrant a second season so it can get bigger and better because there are some things that I need to figure out. I do like that Netflix can get away with a bit more than normal network television which makes the possibilities for this series very interesting. Let us all cross our fingers that season 2 if there is one is super duper awesome.
Long Island Princesses is glorious. I know that I might be biased because I grew up in Long Island and although I can’t really identify with this idiots I know I have seen them all over the place. I find it funny instead of trying to compete with the likes of the Jersey Shore by choosing the typical Italian you find on Long Island, which btdubs is never to be confused with Shore going/NJ living Italians EVER, they went a different route and chose the typical Long Island Jewish Princess which to be honest I feel is much more Jersey but what can you do. Either way every one of these hot messes I absolutely love to bits! Joey is my favorite and not because she isn’t the super rich girl aspiring to be like the others but because she holds her own and seems to have it the most together. I do think she has a bit of a chip on her shoulder but I am not completely sure I blame her. If you haven’t seen this train wreck of a show yet you are missing out on some amazeball summer fun!
Twisted is another ABC Family gem so far! They are just crankin out some good shows! I know I might be too “old” but I don’t care I love their shows. The only thing I really don’t love is Jo’s (one of the main characters) hair. It is just plain stupid. I am not even sure what look they were attempting to go for other than icky because it is just gross and unstylish in every way. Even the grunge era wouldn’t accept it. The shows description is “The new ABC Family original mystery series Twisted centers on a charismatic 16-year-old with a troubled past, who recently reconnected with his two female best friends from childhood. He becomes the prime suspect when a fellow student is surprisingly found dead in her home.” What is left out is that he recently reconnects because he has been away for the past 5 years for killing his aunt while his 2 besties were outside playing and no one knows why he did it. He has yet to ever tell anyone the reason. If they can keep the story going without it getting boring or too convoluted I am all in!
