seeking tv recommendations
posted by soe 1:40 am

I will admit that Rudi and I are spending way more time than maybe I expected these days watching tv shows at night. I am not great about binge-watching shows, preferring to draw them out in a more traditional timeframe, but between scripted shows ending early, long-time watches drawing to a natural conclusion, and just more anxious time on our hands, we’re going through series faster than I expected.

Therefore, I could use some more recommendations.

What we’ve been enjoying this year, from current shows to dvds:

  • Brooklyn Nine-Nine (we’re about to finish off the season 5 dvds)
  • New Girl
  • Parks and Recreation (we’re only in season 2)
  • Picard (we’re halfway through the run)
  • Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist
  • Stumptown
  • The Librarians
  • A Million Little Things
  • Magnum, P.I.
  • Good Omens
  • My Life Is Murder
  • God Friended Me

What have you been watching that you love?

We (read: I) tend to prefer shows that are optimistic and upbeat, so I’m never going to watch Breaking Bad or Dexter, no matter how compelling or well-written they are. And we’re not going to watch reality tv, particularly ones where they showcase horrible human beings, so The Tiger King is also a non-starter.

If you have any shows you think we’d like, please leave them in the comments. We have access to a variety of, but not all, streaming platforms, so I’m open to suggestions from wherever you have them, and I’m happy to consider shows from any era (we may finally watch The Gilmore Girls).

Similarly, if you have films you’ve streamed recently, I’d be open to hearing about them, too, since I’ll have to move to movies if I run out of tv.

Thanks in advance!
