Shameless was one of my favorite shows. It lasted 10 seasons and I really enjoyed each season. I’m not sure if there was really a bad season. I liked watching the kids grow up over the years. Each child had their own set of problems and their own different ways to solve them. The nice part was most of the the actors and actresses were in all 10 seasons, so there wasn’t much shuffling of characters. It was a funny show with some drama and real-life issues. This is an adult show so I would wait until the kids are in bed.

This is a unique show. It combines a traditional 90’s sitcom and a more traditional show with dark tones. It’s about a wife who wants to kill her husband but then is happy when the sitcom portion is happening. I like the concept of the show. The transition between sitcom and the real show is done very well. I can’t wait until season 2 comes along. I’m hoping the storyline evolves more.

Season 3:

This season of Manifest was a bit better than Season 2 but not as good as Season 1. They went back to the Season 1 style of the show, but it’s still a little slow. I feel like this show could drag on forever now as they still seem to look for clues of the wreck. It’s like they close one storyline but three more pop up. I will probably watch Season 4, it’s still interests me enough to keep going.

Season 1 and 2:

This shows premise reminds me a lot like the show Lost and it seems to even follow the train wreck that Lost did in quality. The first season of Manifest was pretty good then the second season showed up and the writers didn’t really seem to know what to do with it. The acting isn’t that great either in this show, some of it is very cringe worthy. Not sure if I’ll watch Season 3 yet, it’s currently not available for me.

Schitt’s Creek is one of the funniest shows I’ve seen in a while. While the show spans 5 seasons some of the best moments are in the first few seasons. The premise is a rich family who lost everything and end up living in a hotel. The comic factor is the change in lifestyle and the small city they end up living in. The chemistry between the characters were spot on. If you like comedies and need something to watch, I definitely recommend it.

Season 2:

The first season starts slow but ended at a pretty good pace. The second season continued this pace throughout the whole season. This season continued the storyline of season one and brought it to the next level. The ending was unexpected and even had me doing internet searches about how they were able to pull it off. I enjoyed it and can’t wait for season 3 to come out. They are hitting this series out of the park.

Season 1:

I really like the western theme of this show. The special effects are great and love seeing the old Star Wars environment and themes. I found the series fun to watch and the action sequences were great. The whole series reminded me of the original Star Wars trilogy. The storyline is decent, the episodes seem short but I’m not complaining too much as I feel like most series these days have over hour episodes so it was nice seeing the shorter episodes. The end of season one was wrapped up nicely but left plenty of room to be continued, in which I will probably keep watching.

Overall I enjoyed Community. It was slow to get into it, took maybe half the season to finally get attached to the characters. Season two and three is where it hit its strive. Season 4 was a dumpster fire, and it seems to take the whole series in a different direction. The fifth and sixth season was better however you lost a lot of the original cast. They seem like they were trying to get back to the roots of the show. I feel like you can watch the first 3 seasons and then just quit, and you wouldn’t miss much. The show is very original and pretty funny especially if you can get the references. I would give this show a try, there’s a lot of love for it out there.

I remember watching a few episodes of this series back when it was originally being aired and found it quite funny. I decided to watch all 13 seasons of it and see if I found it nearly as funny today. The series starts slowing in season one but picks up about mid to late season two. I feel like it’s prime is between season two and season six, maybe seven. You have some great episodes in those seasons. I was nearly falling out of my chair laughing (pocket sand!). It starts going downhill about season 8 and then just maintain a ‘meh’ moment which some funny one-liners but nothing like before. The series ends without really any conclusion it was like they didn’t know they were going to be canceled. I wouldn’t recommend watching it if you do want to watch it I would save yourself some time and stop at season seven or eight.

I liked the storyline of this show. It’s a wonderful light-hearted comedy that gives you some life lessons along the way. The four-season show didn’t have any low points as it started strong and stayed that way with some twists along the way. It was a very imaginative show that went a different direction than most recent shows tend to take a no crude jokes very innocent humor. It was pleasing to watch. The final two shows closed the series out quite well. While I probably wouldn’t watch the series again, I would recommend it if someone needed a new series to watch.

The show was set in the 90s and is a conflict between two mothers living two different lives. Elena played by Reese Witherspoon lives an entitled life that she seems to control. Mia played by Kerry Washington is a protective mother who tries to do the right thing. The show reminded me a lot like the show Big Little Lies which Reese Witherspoon also plays in with a character similar to Elena. The acting was wonderful, and they all seem to play their roles quite well. The story can be pretty emotional at times when they hit sensitive topics like abortion and class entitlement. The closer you got to the end of the series the more it grabbed you with the unexpected ending being very satisfying.

This show is about a “me too” incident involving a co-host and the power between the executives and the producers/hosts. It kind of shows you how the advertisement and the owners of the networks dictates what happens on the media. The “me too” aspect of this series I felt was pretty well-rounded between the female and male point of views. The show was very dynamic with complex emotions on all sides. The acting was amazing and the story was interesting.
