I watch a lot of TV. A lot. Many people (especially my mother) would say it’s too much. But no matter how many hours I spend in front of the TV watching episodes after episode, there never seems to be enough time.
I’ve created a survey so you can share your opinions on the shows you’d like to see receive an Emmy on September 22nd! Click HERE to take it!
Although I have already watched the majority of the shows, life has been busy and I was not able too got through even some of the most popular shows everybody has been talking about:
Better Call Saul
The trials and tribulations of criminal lawyer, Jimmy McGill, in the time leading up to establishing his strip-mall law office in Albuquerque, New Mexico.IMDb
I watched Breaking Bad a lot after it had aired and I struggled to finish it at the end. And even though I loved it, I was not interested in expanding that universe. I know Bob Odenkirk is gives a wonderful performance, I just don’t feel like spending my time watching, no matter how great of a show it is.
A financial adviser drags his family from Chicago to the Missouri Ozarks, where he must launder $500 million in five years to appease a drug boss.IMDb
I don’t really have a reason why I haven’t watch this yet. I see the poster on Netflix sometimes but it has never grabbed my attention. I don’t even know what it is about, to be honest. Maybe I’ll check it out eventually.
Succession follows a dysfunctional American global-media family.IMDb
I’ve heard lots of people talk about how good this HBO show is, I just never thought it was something for me to like. I’ve also planned on watching “Billions” on Showtime but I don’t think I enjoy this type of show.
Escape At Dannemora
An employee at a prison in upstate New York becomes romantically involved with a pair of inmates and helps them escape.IMDb
This I’m actually planning on watching. I’ve heard Jon Lovett on the Pod Save America ads talk about this and Chernobyl. And now I’m intrigued by it.
I know nothing about it, which is exactly what I love doing. Going in Jake Peralta style: “Eyes closed, head first, can’t lose.”
An inside look at the romantic and creative partnership between influential choreographer/director, Bob Fosse, and Gwen Verdon, one of the greatest Broadway dancers of all time.IMDb
Michelle Williams is in it and she’s amazing. And it’s produced by Lin-Manuel Miranda. Like… Do you need any other reason to watch this show?
I am not familiar with who Fosse and Verdon were but I’m definitely here for this.
A reporter confronts the psychological demons from her past when she returns to her hometown to cover a violent murder.IMDb
I read this book a while ago and I wanted to wait until I had forgotten some of the details to watch the tv show otherwise I would have compared them too much.
Amy Adams is fantastic so I’m really excited to see her performance in this. It supposed to be very dark and gloomy and psychologically tense.
And it’s directed by Jean-Marc Vallée, the same director of Big Little Lies!
When They See Us
Five teens from Harlem become trapped in a nightmare when they’re falsely accused of a brutal attack in Central Park. Based on the true story.IMDb
So many people talked about it but I am not familiar with the story. It was 1989 and I was born in 1996. In a different country. Ava DuVernay directed it and my high school crush Joshua Jackson is in it. What more could I want?
In only four episodes, it’s a compelling story about the American justice systems and the institutionalized racism that is sadly still present to this day.
The Kominsky Method
An aging actor, who long ago enjoyed a brush with fame, makes his living as an acting coach.IMDb
This was nominated last year and well and I did not watch it. I did not get the appeal of it. I really didn’t.
I don’t want to be rude, but why would I watch a show about two old white dudes in Los Angeles? I just don’t feel like it, especially with all the other more diverse and interesting sounding shows?
Maybe I’m wrong. Tweet at me.
Dead To Me
A series about a powerful friendship that blossoms between a tightly wound widow and a free spirit with a shocking secret.IMDb
I have no idea why I haven’t seen this one yet. I truly don’t. It seems like an interesting show with two women as leads and I should have watched it a long time ago.
And there’s Christina Applegate! Linda Cardellini (who I did not know until literally 2 seconds ago was Velma in the Scooby-Doo Movies and now I’m shook) and James Marsden!
Can’t wait to check this out!
AND LAST BUT NOT LEAST:
A Very English Scandal
British Liberal Party leader Jeremy Thorpe is accused of conspiracy to murder his gay ex-lover and forced to stand trial in 1979.IMDb
I cannot believe I still haven’t seen this show. And in perfect British fashion, it’s just 3 episodes long.
I could have watched it in an evening! I am deeply disappointed in myself. And there’s Hugh Grant in it! And Ben Whishaw!
I must watch this.
Here they are! I don’t know what I’ll be able to see in the 3 remaining weeks but I’ll try my best!
Have you seen any of these shows? Which ones would you recommend?
