5 Shows I'm Watching this Fall


There's been a lot of heaviness around this blog lately, so I thought today, I would lighten things up a bit.

If you've hung around this blog for any length of time you've probably gathered that I am what you might call, a full-fledged bookworm. I love books and prefer them any day over TV and movies. I know this makes me weird, but I just really don't enjoy watching movies very much. Unless it's a comedy, I have no interest. TV I can stand because it's perfect for times like now when I have zero brain power to devote to anything for more than 20 minutes. With my brain in permanent, sleep-deprived Mommy-mode, I've pushed the books aside for the time being, and have been watching way more TV than usual lately.

Here are the shows I'm binge-watching while on maternity leave:



MASTER OF NONE
Okay, so this is kind of a lie. I haven't been watching this show while on maternity leave, because I finished watching Season 1 months ago and still can't stop talking about it. Loosely based on Aziz Ansari's own life, the writing is phenomenal and freaking hilarious. And seeing as it recently won an Emmy, I'm clearly not the only one who thinks so.

Watch if you like: Louie and Inside Amy Schumer

NEW GIRL
It takes a lot for me to religiously follow a current TV show. I'm someone who likes to stick with re-watching the classics (in my case, Friends, Parks and Recreation and The Office). New Girl is the exception. The cast is so, so good and the humor is constantly fresh and totally relatable as a millennial. 

Watch if you like: Friends and How I Met Your Mother

JESSICA JONES
Admittedly, I don't really do superheroes. I'm not a huge fan of action movies and typically, I could care less about the Marvel universe. But I watched an interview with Krysten Ritter and she totally sold me on her badass female character. This show is crazy suspenseful, a tiny bit creepy, and so in line with today's culture. Bonus: her love interest is crazy hot. 

Watch if you like: Heroes and Buffy the Vampire Slayer

THE GOOD PLACE
This show is in its first season and I've loved it so much. It's kind of adorkable, just like it's leading lady, Kristen Bell. It's the perfect lighthearted and silly plot to balance out the darkness of some of the other shows I've been watching. 

Watch if you like: Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt and Parks and Recreation

THE DAILY SHOW
Because who else, but Trevor Noah can keep us sane throughout this election season. I have the hugest crush on him and become more impressed every time I tune in with how Noah has continued Jon Stewart's legacy, but has also infused his own personality and humor into the show. He nails it every time.

Watch if you like: The Late Show with Stephen Colbert and Late Night with Seth Meyers
