Having The Flu Gave Me An Awesome Excuse to Watch TV

I was sick as a dog for a few days. Since I was bed-ridden and couldn’t do anything involving cogent thought, I took the time to catch up on a bunch of TV shows that I had intended to watch for a while. I’ll give a brief recap of what I thought of each one. I included the IMDB links for each show if you want to check them out or the Amazon links if you want to buy them. They’re also available on Netflix and/or Hulu.

Animal Practice

Animal Practice

Cancelled before its time. My God, this show was brilliantly funny. My mother and I both did the Vader “Noooooooooooo!” when we checked online to see when Hulu would get the next episode–only to discover there were no more to be had.

Supernatural (Season 1 & [part of] 2)

Supernatural

WHERE HAS THIS SHOW BEEN ALL MY LIFE.

This Is Me Right Now
This Is Me Right Now

A mild touch of horror with a dash of wry humor and a sprinkle of pop culture. Plus Dean (Jensen Ackles). I think I’m in love.

American Horror Story (Season 1 & 2)

American Horror Story

If you are a sick puppy like me, you will love this. Dark, twisted, surreal, psychological horror at its finest. Not to say that it doesn’t have gory moments–but the show excels in making you face the dark side of humanity. Not for the faint of heart or weak of stomach.

And I have to give kudos to Zachary Quinto (you might recognize him as Spock from the Star Trek reboot), Taissa Farmiga and Jessica Lange for stellar performances on that show.

The Walking Dead (Season 2 & 3)

The Walking Dead

The Governor is an asshole. Anyone else watch this and feel the same? Also, while it’s a good show, it didn’t successfully hit me in the feels until…

WALKING-DEAD-SPOILERS

…Andrea (Laurie Holden) died. I may have shed one or two tears.

So, have you seen any of these shows? What did you think of them?

    I recently started watching Supernatural, too! (I’m on Season 4.) And I’m having the same reaction: WHY DID I WAIT SO LONG TO WATCH IT?!?!
