I confess I like some reality TV...I have never watched the Kardashians, Housewives of anywhere, Jersey Shore... I like the The Amazing Race, Survivor, and if the truth be known, I occasionally catch an episode of Celebrity Apprentice. I don't watch all the time, but I keep up with them. My husband's hooked now on the new cop show on TNT, Boston's Finest.
I have made a discovery. I can become obsessed with series on Netflix...you have all the episodes at your fingertip. I couldn't stop watching Merlin the Series until I finished the last episode that Netflix had in stock. Not happy that we can't get the series over here in the US because I know there's a whole season I haven't seen yet. I have to wait and I'm not a patient person. Netflix is where I first watched one of my favorite series—Downton Abbey! Love that series! At least its on PBS and only have to wait six months to watch it...although I have to say that last season I was let down when I discovered on a spoiler that Matthew died! Oh...I should have never done that.
But series can be addictive. Am I right? Take Game of Thrones, the Walking Dead, Homeland...I also like Revenge, Once Upon a Time and Grimm. I'm still debating Revolution. I want to see where it goes...kinda forgotten about it after it has been off for so long.
Series catches our attention. When we enjoy a series, it draws us back. Take The Hunger Games...last year brought the first movie of the Suzanne Collins' book series. Now we're looking forward to the next...
Back last year, I will admit I went to The Hobbit solely because I'm a avid fan of Lord of the Rings. I knew that making three movies out of one book would drag a tad, but I enjoyed it anyway. I love books by Nicholas Sparks so I'm looking forward to seeing Safe Haven.
What do you think of series? Like them? Can't wait for the next one? Let me know. Love to hear from you!
Have a good one! Keep reading!
