I am constantly kicking myself for falling behind in University Course work, Sure I could blame the incessant texting, Tinder-ing, Online dating – thank you OkCupid, or the fact Ive been reading some great books….
But let’s not. Lets focus on that one thing I always pretend I don’t do – watching TV…
I am not sure about you, but when people ask me what I do for fun, my answer will never be watch tv. And when ever people ask me if I watch TV, my answer is always ‘No’, as if it somehow gives me some god given right to lord it above others.
It is the one thing I really know that I lie about, well technically I watch the dvd Box sets and the tv shows… but not actually on the TV so maybe it isn’t lying.
The TV shows you should be watching for the summer are:
- Red Band Society:
A super cute story that follows seven children/teenagers through their experience in a hospital. We have ‘Coma Boy’, better known as Charlie, who has been in a coma and is the narrator of the Show. Kira, essentially a cold hearted bitch – who has heart failure – go figure. Leo, a great guy who excels in sports and has cancer in his leg. Jordie, a poor guy riddled with cancer who’s grown up in and out of back end poker rooms. Dash – the glue who holds the gang together, who’s lungs are in crisis. Emma, a overly smart girl who is suffering from Anorexia and some family drama. Hunter, A guy who’s liver is failing and feels it’s very much ‘me against the world’ situation. These 7 are joined by four main staff members, Nurse Jackson, Dr McAndrews, Nurse Brittany and Nurse Kenji.
- Jane The Virgin
Jane, who was raised by her grandmother and mother – who had her as an teenager, vowed to stay a virgin until marriage so that she wouldn’t repeat her mothers accident. It all goes well until she is accidentally inseminated with her Boss’s sperm – don’t ask questions – just watch it.
If you liked Breaking Bad, you’ll love Weeds. Focusing on a young widowed mum with a flare for selling drugs and getting caught up in drama, it’s well worth a watch.
- Bob’s Burgers
One of the more classy cartoon shows, sorry Archer but your sexist comments aren’t wanted here. This tv show focuses on the Belcher Family, Bob, Linda, Tina, Gene and Louise as they run a burger joint. Words can’t describe how funny this show is.
