I've always been a bit of a couch potato and NetFlix streaming doesn't make it any easier on me! I've finished The Fall and Downton Abbey. And since Orange is the New Black is still a few months away, I need my old standbys to fill the time.
But this year there are already a couple of new shows that have caught my attention.
Better Call Saul (AMC) - If you were a fan of Breaking Bad (I was obsessed!), then you'll want to check out this new series. It is basically the prequel to BB, where it follows Saul, our favorite attorney, in his early years before he met Mr. White. The series includes some other BB cast members who you might remember. It was created by Vince Gilligan and carries the same style of storytelling. Definitely one to watch!
The Americans (FX) - This is not a new series, since it is now on season 3. But I feel like it's one not a lot of people are watching, although they should be! It takes place in 1980's America during the Cold War. The main characters are Russian spies, attempting to blend in to the normal American life, while carrying out their missions.
Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt (NetFlix) - Tina Fey wrote a new series which recently aired on NetFlix. It stars Ellie Kemper (The Office) and Jane Krakowski. I think of the main character as a female version of Kenneth from 30 Rock. It's about a young woman who was abducted by a cult member and forced to live underground. 15 years later she is rescued and attempts to start over in New York City.
Impratical Jokers (TruTV) - This is another show that has been around for a few seasons. It follows a group of four real life best friends as they play practical jokes on unsuspecting folks. Their jokes are hilarious, especially the incredibly awkward or embarrassing moments. They each take turns playing jokes on people and are scored. At the end of the show, the loser is punished (example: interview your childhood crush while wearing nothing but a speedo and baby oil).
My DVR is full of other shows each week, but these are my tops right now. What are you watching?
