AMP has always been a video game nerd – I knew that when I married him. And, honestly, I don’t mind, because unlike some who complain that their husbands never spend time with them, AMP is perfectly capable of shutting down the game to snuggle up and watch a movie without a complaint – and sometimes even it’s his idea. So, him spending a few evening drowning out some stress in his make-believe video world is fine by me. Especially since his latest game is a computer game, leaving me all access to the one television in the house.
This sounded great, until I realized that whenever I sit down and watch TV there is absolutely nothing good on. We have a handful of shows we DVR and watch together. But, other than that, there’s only so many Storage Wars or House Hunters re-runs I can watch before I’ve seen them all. And, I have a problem with watching random episodes of a show halfway through the second season.
But, last month we signed up for a free month of Netflix, and I’m in love. I love the access to the movies, but my favorite part is the TV shows. I love being able to sit down and watch episode after episode all in a row till I need a break, or I finish. So far, I’ve finished two short series, Arrested Development and Accidentally on Purpose. Last night, I started watching Life Unexpected, about a teenage girl in foster care who tracks down her biological parents to get their signatures to be emancipated and ends up in their joint custody. I’m a few episodes in and so far I am hooked. The main character’s name is Lux, and I really like the name. Unfortunately, it goes against all my naming rules (yes, I have rules, but that’s for a later post), but I’m kind of thinking it might make a nice middle name?
I’m almost hoping AMP is planning on spending another evening playing video games for a few hours after dinner so I can watch another episode or two. Though, snuggling on the couch sounds really good too.
What are your favorite shows? Anything I can find on Netflix for my next obsession? Haha.
Not a sponsored post. Netflix did not ask me to write this post, nor am I being compensated for it. I just wanted to share my love! :) Though another free couple months would not be turned away.
