A Show for Every Day of The Week

February 2, 2014 Marianne's Thoughts 12

Ever since discovering Netflix, and Hulu Plus, I’ve been throwing away my social life in exchange for the glorious world of series. I can honestly tell you that if you compare how many series I watched before opening my Netflix account and after, the after tally will be exponentially higher.

Netflix and Hulu helped me discover new shows, as well as helped me catch up on all those shows I wanted to catch up on. Here’s a look of what a normal (non-hiatus) week looks like for me:


Mondays for me are How I Met Your Mother day. This is HIMYM’s last season, so there are definitely a lot of feels going around. I desperately wait for each episode to come out as soon as soon as I finish the one I’m currently watching. I can’t wait to finally see one of the funniest (in my opinion) series on TV to end.  I want my questions to be answered, but most of all I want a sense of closure with this show, and I want Ted to finally meet his future wife (I mean, c’mon, 8 years is enough waiting time!).


New Girl with Zooey Deschanel and Jake Johnson is one show that I never tire of. Ever since it premiered in 2011, I’ve watched episodes on and off, until October of last year when I saw all 2 seasons in 2 weeks (I had tests to take, if not it would have been much faster!). Each episode is quirky and adorable. Jess is the protagonist, and she’s so bubbly and weird, that a lot of Tumblr users have labeled her as their “spirit animal”. All my friends have recently fallen in love with this show after much persistance on my part. 🙂 I love this show because you don’t need to take it so seriously. When you’re stressed out, and need a great laugh, you can turn on the TV and enjoy.


Wednesdays are all for Arrow. I don’t know it it’s the geek within me, but Arrow is one of my favorite shows. I literally watched all of the episodes (Roughly 33 40-minute episodes) in 3 days! That’s how much I enjoyed it. The appeal for me with this show, is the fact that even if it’s action-packed, it still has room for quirky and hilarious situations. Also, after every episode ends, you’ll need the next one in your hands immediately!  I haven’t read the comics, and am not planning to, but from what I’ve heard, it’s been pretty creative yet still hung true to the original story.


White Collar is one show that I watch on and off, and yet enjoy so much. This season is getting more action-packed by the second, and I can’t wait to see where it will go! Also, Matt Bomer. (That’s enough reason to watch it!)


Every Friday, I have a date with Jonathan Rys Meyers and the show he stars in: Dracula. This show is based on the classic Bram Stoker story that we all know and love. Think you know everything there is to know about Dracula? You’re wrong. This show has an AMAZING cast, and such great acting! Jonathan Rys Meyers captures Dracula in a way I never thought anyone could. He portrays the ruthlessness needed to be a creature of the night, but at the same time can display moments of heartbreaking humanity that just blow you away. By the second episode, I was already hooked. I definitely forgive him for being Valentine in the City of Bones movie.


I use Saturdays to either watch Law & Order and NCIS marathons on TV, OR to catch up on all of the shows I’m still behind on. Call these my “lazy” tv series days. Haha.


I was a hardcore fan of Once Upon a Time since season 1. I used to ignore all my school-work and just tune into it Sundays at 8. All this changed once season 3 came around and my service provider decided to take away my ABC channel. Nevertheless, I will eventually get up to speed on this show, and it will once again take importance over all my other duties on Sundays. 🙂

Petition for the government to make more days of the week so I can watch series faster! Haha. Forgive me for this being a non-book related post, but I just love gushing about the shows I love!

(This is a non-sponsered post, I merely mentioned Netflix and Hulu because I watch most of my series through them.)

Anyways, there are TONS of shows that I watch, but here are just some of them.

What are your favorite shows? Let me know in the comments below!

  • Totally agree about New Girl and Once Upon a Time! I haven’t watched the other shows but I can definitely see why they’re so good. I usually just skip around on random channels until I find something to interest me haha.

  • Lovely round up Marianne! I wish I had American TV at home lol. I have heard great things about Arrow but haven’t started watching it yet. I started watching Once Upon a Time which was pretty good but one of the main characters kind of annoyed me so I stopped watching lol.

    • Haha sometimes I wish I had British TV at my house (because of Doctor Who & Sherlock). Arrow is SO good, and addicting. This season is all about the comic books, and it’s definitely action packed.

  • Alise (Readers in Wonderland)

    Super fun post, I love to see what people are watching on TV because I love to watch. I have to say I’ve heard of these but haven’t seen a lot of them. Tuesdays I watch The Originals and Thursdays I watch Vampire Diaries although it has gone downhill a lot. OH MY GOSH YOU NEED TO CATCH UP ON ONCE. I am absolute love with that show and season three is AMAZING. No words. You HAVE to meet Hook 😉

    • I stopped watching TVD at season 4 because I got tired of the love triangle. Maybe when season 4 is on Netflix I’ll watch it again. I LOVE HOOK! I’ve been catching up (at a snail’s pace) so I know that Hook is pretty dreamy 😀 His man-liner definitely suits him!

      • Alise (Readers in Wonderland)

        Right?? So amazing. And it only gets better 😉

  • We can definitely live together if it’s solely because of books and TV! I watch almost every show that you do! I do watch shows with chips and popcorn 🙂

    • That’s totally okay! Popcorn and chips are an essential part of my dinner 😛

      • I always have a jar filled with popcorn. I cook it old school, on top of the oven. And I also have a cupboard with bottles of different flavorings for popcorn 🙂

        • YOU. ARE. AWESOME. I think I’d gain a ton of pounds, but it would be SO worth it! Haha.

  • We’re somewhat new to the whole watching stuff online thing, too–it started with Amazon Prime, and then we just re-signed up for Netflix recently. We had Hulu Plus for awhile too, it’s hard to keep up with all the new shows!

    We just finished watching ORANGE IS THE NEW BLACK, and started PORTLANDIA. I’ve also really enjoyed THE GOOD WIFE, THE RETURNED, ORPHAN BLACK, HANNIBAL, and zillion other shows, binge-watching is really the best.

    • I really want to start OITNB and Hannibal! I’m just afraid of starting new series because then my college work would go to the way-side. Thanks for stopping by!
