Looking for something decent to watch on TV? These 5 shows are just what you need. Some are dramas, some are comedies, all 5 are my favorites!
1. Underground (WGN and Hulu)
I heard about this show about the Underground Railroad with John Legend as a producer. That's always been a part of history that fascinates me and that I think we can all learn from to avoid repeating the horrid mistakes our country made then.
Then I learned the show is on WGN...a channel we don't get. Hulu also has the show "Underground" but we also didn't have Hulu. Until now. I bought a Hulu subscription and watched the entire 10-episode, first season of this series in 48 hours.
The rest of the shows in this list are in random order. "Underground" is number one for a reason.
2. This Is Us (NBC)
A hit show from NBC that just wrapped up it's first season, This Is Us is a family drama that follows the lives of 3 siblings via flashbacks. The series is known to be a tear-jerker but there are also many laugh-out-loud moments mixed in. Watch it and see if you love Randall and Beth as much as I do.
3. A Series of Unfortunate Events (Netflix)
Based on the amazing books by Lemony Snicket, this series (I'm referring to both the books and the show) are for kids and adults alike. Neil Patrick Harris stars as the evil Count Olaf. Patrick Warburton with his deep, serious voice, as the narrator is phenomenal.
4. Man With A Plan (CBS)
"Friends" star Matt LeBlanc stars in this half-hour sitcom. Let me hit you with honesty: we loved his character "Joey" but were not sure THIS new show would be any good. Spoiler alert: the show really is good.
5. Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt (Netflix)
Hilarious. Every single episode. The story follows the fictional Kimmy character who was locked in a bunker for 15 years by a cult leader! She escapes and sets up a new life in New York. This is the perfect half-hour show to make you laugh after a long day.
So, what do you think of the list? What's on YOUR must-see list that I might be missing out on??
