So I have had Netflix forever....but never really taken advantage of its online streaming. This year I decided I would catch up on TV shows that I've never watched but have heard tons of people gasping and fawning over. Ill tell you this year I have had moments of wanting to kick myself for not watching these shows when they aired, to moments of wanting to scratch my eyes out due to the awfulness I was exposed to, so here's the good, the bad and the ugly.
Watched Jan 11'- July 11'
Out of all the shows this one took me the longest to get through and was by far the best show I've seen ever! When Lost ended I cried....CRIED. Even though Kate was a butt, I was sad it was over. Lost had one of the best emotional endings for TV I've seen. I was a tear-soaked wreck!! JACK I love you.
Sons of Anarchy
Talk about a surprise. I didn't think I would like a show about a motorcycle gang and despite Jax knock me down good looks this show has a kick-butt story-line. As of now Im only on season 3 but I've enjoyed every episode.
Friday Night Lights
I never gave this a chance when it was on TV, only because I hate football movies. But I loved this show like it was warm cupcakes. I think I cared so much about the characters that everything made me cry....even the first episode with Jason Street got me all emotional. I want the Taylor's to live next door to me and I want Tim Riggins over for dinner.
So this almost made it into the bad pile because Army life is not like what is portrayed in this show and Joan irritates the crap outta me.
However I couldn't help but be addicted to all the dramatic and cheesy story-lines going on. Claudia Joy and Pam's drama make the show worth watching and Stefan the Vampire shows up for about 5 episodes as a boyfriend to one of the characters. Im not sure if this show is over or not, Im ok with the way it ended and cant really see how they can drag it out anymore.
I know, I know I hear you all gasping!! But hear me out.....
I really liked season one, thought it was great and LOVED the season finale. Season two was ok, despite Felicity's terrible haircut, I understood the dynamics of her character and for the most part liked it. Then comes season three and by this time I want to punch Julie in the head so she will just leave the SHOW already and Felicity becomes a feminist and everything turns into crap and then that crap turns into season four and everything just went somewhere into outer space. All that nonsense her and Ben went through so he could follow her in the end just to cheat on her??? That was dumb and had no point.
I really like JJ Abrams (Alias, Lost-favs of all time) shows but that whole end with Ben, the abruptness of Noah and Elena and the time travel malarkey- Not GOOD.
Brothers and Sisters
This show was TERRIBLE...like puke terrible. Bad acting, bad plot and when you break it down to its pure essentials its just a show that gives Sally Field as many dramatic breakdowns as possible in a one hour episode, oh and whats her name, Ally McBeal- she also gets a chance (every episode) to realize that her political views are stupid, matter of a fact all the republicans featured in the show are complete dumb asses who either lie, cheat or steal, while all the democrats are level headed, honest (HA!) for the people type of people, whatever!!! I stopped watching this turd after season 2.
Shows I Tried and gave up on in about five minutes
One Tree Hill- Oh this was bad....so so bad!! Take a bunch of 30 year old actors and make them pretend their in high-school. Oh wait its already been done before it was 90210 without basketball.
Wildfire- more like wild turds, awful acting, bad plotline, the only thing good about this show was the horse.
And there you have it my year long Netflix fun.
What have your favorites been?
