Over the summer, my mom and I found ourselves in need of a new show. Frasier will always be that show we go back to, but we were looking for something new for the summer. A few summers ago, we watched every season of House. Last summer, it was 7th Heaven. This year, after hearing great things about the new Netflix original series, we were intrigued…
House of Cards follows Kevin Spacey as Congressman Francis Underwood, a ruthless politician who will do anything — and does! — to climb to the top. It’s one of those on-the-edge-of-your-seat political thrillers, and I even found myself biting my nails during some episodes! Oh, and Kate Mara rocks it as a budding investigative reporter.
Then a few weeks ago, we started watching Orange Is The New Black, and needless to say, we’re already hooked! Suburbanite Piper Chapman’s past catches up with her, resulting in her being sentence to 15 months in a women’s prison. As she begins to assimilate to prison life, we also learn the back stories of her cell mates, which is what makes this series all the more interesting. The lesson from this show: I would never, ever survive prison life. Ever.
So, what shows are you watching these days, friends? Has anyone watched Hemlock Grove, another Netflix original? xoxo
