The Wonderful World of TV!

Now that television show seasons are wrapping up and the season finales are leaving everyone hanging, I wanted to share with you what my "go-to" shows were this season. It seemed like my DVR was recording at least one show a week!

1. New Girl

Jess (played by Zooey Deschanel), is a bubbly, offbeat, adorable, eccentric woman in her late 20s who teaches at a local middle school. She caught her boyfriend cheating on her and is determined to move on from her unfortunate relationship. Jess moves out and starts looking for a new place. She saw an ad on Craigslist, where she meets and moves in with three young men: Nick, Schmidt, and Coach.

Jess and Schmidt are the BEST part of the show. Their characters are hilarious and even Clint enjoyed watching this show. This was the first season and they did an awesome job and I cannot wait until Season 2 on FOX!

2. The Vampire Diaries

The series follows the life of Elena, a 17 year-old girl, who falls for a 162-year-old vampire named Stefan. Their relationship becomes increasingly complicated as Stefan's older brother Damon returns with a plan to wreak havoc on the town and a revenge against his younger brother. Both brothers start to show affection towards Elena, mainly because of her resemblance to their past love. The series is set in the fictional town of Mystic Falls, VIrginia, a town charged with supernatural history since its settlement of migrants from New England in the late 17th century. There are many different stroy lines revolving around Elena's friends that include werewolves, witches and ghosts.

I was hesitant at first because I thought it was just trying to be like the Twilight movies. Thankfully, it much more gripping story lines and MUCH better acting. Check it out on the CW!

Since I like Damon better, here are some funny moments from Damon:

3. Mad Men

Mad Men is set in the 1960s, at the fictional Sterling Cooper advertisint agency on Madison Avenue in New York City and later at the newly created firm Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce. The focal point of the series is Don Draper, creative director at Sterling Cooper and a founding partner at Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce, and the people in his life, both in and out of the office. As such, it regularly depicts the changing moods and social mores of 1960s America.

Clint and I LOVE this show! We love watching it together every Sunday. It still has 3 more episodes this season so check it out at 9pm Sundays on AMC!

Let me know if you watch any of these shows and like them!

(I have just started watching 30 Rock on I'll let you know how it is. So far I am loving it!)

  1. Awesome job with the videos. Sorry I have not seen any of the above TV shows or movies. Now, if we were talking about John Wayne or Clint Eastwood...
