Aside from ABC’s Scandal, there aren’t any shows that I’m dedicated to. I used to religiously watch Glee, but then I became annoyed with Sue Sylvester‘s ongoing hate for the New Directions. I mean c’mon, can she get a life?
Twitter has a way of making you feel left out when you don’t watch a particular show that everyone’s tweeting about. Once these shows come on, I know it’s best to just log off and read a book.
There are quite a few shows that make me feel like a loner, and here they are:
1. The Walking Dead
Every Sunday night my Twitter timeline is full of tweets about this show:
“Andrea is so annoying!”
“Omg I’m sleeping with my night-light after tonight’s episode!”
I began to feel out of the loop. I wanted to know who this Andrea was and why she was so annoying. Bump sleeping with a night-light though.
Anyway, yesterday I finally broke down and decided to watch the very first episode of The Walking Dead on Netflix. A few months ago I attempted watching it, but it gave me the creeps and I never finished it.
At the end of the day-or should I say night- I had watched the entire first season. Now I’m ready for season 2! Hopefully I can catch up and finally contribute to all the Twitter talk about the current season.
I do agree with that one tweeter about needing a night-light. I had a dream that I was trying to escape from walkers in downtown Manhattan. While randomly stopping for shoes (yes, shoes) my sister’s friend had her neck chomped into. Ick.
As I always say, I’m a broke college student. Therefore, we don’t have HBO and all those other fancy channels people in the “real world” have. When I first heard about Girls, I also heard about some of its controversy. Like Seinfeld and Friends, it’s a show that takes place in New York City but has no characters of color. I did, however, hear that Donald Glover has been thrown into the mix to fill the token black guy quota.
Despite it not being a melting pot, Girls is a good show from what I hear. Maybe one day I’ll move on up to grown-up cable and get a chance to watch it. Or maybe Netflix will stream the first season? Wink, wink.
3. Breaking Bad
Yup, the show with the dad from Malcolm in the Middle. When promos first aired for Breaking Bad, I still had no idea what it was about. After the show started rolling, I heard so many great reviews about it, and once again I felt left out.
I unknowingly watched one episode of it (I thought it was some movie or whatever) and enjoyed it. This show is also on Netflix, so I may need to do some catching up.
4. Sons of Anarchy
A former co-worker of mine would show me pictures of hot men on motorcycles and I would always think “Umm, where can I get another dosage of this sexiness?” She would always rave about Sons of Anarchy.
The FX drama series about a bad-ass motorcycle club already has a few seasons under its belt but lucky for me, it’s on Netflix as well. Can somebody say, super sexy Sons of Anarchy marathon?
5. Pretty Little Liars
This show confuses me more than algebra. Is the girl dead? Is she a ghost? Is someone pretending to be her? Who would have that much spare time?
Whenever someone asks if I watch it and I say no, they react as if I said I’ve never tried sushi. “Oh my God, you don’t watch Pretty Little Liars? You gotta watch it. One day we gotta watch it together. Believe me, you’ll love it!“
I’m not a huge fan of shows on ABC Family, except Fresh Prince of Bel-Air re-runs. Maybe Pretty Little Liars is the show I need to make an exception for so I’ll fit in. Or maybe not.
This post wouldn’t be right if I didn’t shout out Netflix. Despite its abundance of movies I’ll never watch, it’s allowing me to chip in on conversations about shows I once felt left out about.
