After reading (and loving) this Sweet Lemon Magazine blog post, I knew that I had to share my favorite Netflix shows!
I didn't have cable while at school and I'm not planning on signing up for cable in my new apartment. But I love Netflix. I have the Netflix app on my iPad and watch it while I'm getting ready in the morning and if I'm working on boring things at my desk.
Sometimes I watch movies, but I'm much more into the television series! Forty two minutes is just long enough where I can get through one episode in the morning. Between straightening my hair and getting dressed and putting on make up and what not, it's a great distraction to make time go by a little quicker. Plus, I really dislike watching live television. I'd much rather skip the commercials. AND I love that I can watch as few or as many episodes as I wish, especially if an episode has a cliffhanger. Hello, I'm not patient enough to wait a whole week (or longer if it's a season finale) for the next episode.
Here are my Netflix television series recommendations:
Friday Night Lights | Um.... this show is basically the best show ever. One of my high school coaches would endlessly talk about how great it was. I finally broke down and watched the show and it truly is amazing. The first episode starts off slow. (I think I started to watch it four separate times.) But once you get through the first episode, you will be hooked!!! I'm still in love with Matt Saracen. Swoon.
Brothers & Sisters | This is a series I'm watching right now with my mom. We're hooked!!! We think it feels like a grownup version of The OC. Lots of drama.
One Tree Hill | I always heard friends talking about this show, but I never really even knew what it was about. It's good... but then it gets crazy. Someone told me to stop watching once they graduate from high school. I wish I had listened to that, but if you've watched the show, you know it's just too addicting. But it really does get crazy in the later seasons.
Mad Men | The first four seasons are on Netflix. Love love love. While the whole womanizing thing gets old, the clothes and drama is swoon worthy. It's a slower show and a lot of the beauty in it happens visually and in the little character quirks. Meaning, it's hard to multitask while you watch since you really do have to watch the show.
Felicity | This is great for anyone planning on attending college, currently in college, or went to college at some point. It's a sweet little show and makes college life so much fun. I watched it during my last semester at college and the freshman and sophomore years in particular brought back so many memories. Also, it's fun to watch how much has changed since 1998 and how much has stayed the same. Felicity calls her mom on a NYC pay phone, but the issues Felicity faces are still relevant today.
