11 Series My Family And I Have Shamelessly Finished In An Impressive Amount Of Time

For the past two quarantined months, my family has had the same nighttime routine. Dinner, chat around the kitchen table and go hide out in the basement and watch our TV series. We've always been more TV show type people and not as much movie people. Although, we love a good comedy every now and then. My dad, Mom, sister, and I have done some series binge watching in the past, and so, you can imagine how much we are thriving now that there is literally nothing else to do. We are thriving so much so that we have watched 11 shows in two months.

Shows like 'Outer Banks', 'All American', 'Sweet Magnolias' and 'Dead to me' have really left us hanging since we watched all Netflix has to offer. Sometimes we do some major overlapping with series to switch it up each night. (Keeping up with multiple storylines - a true talent.) These are the 11 shows we've watched in the order we completed them.

Tiger King

After we watched this, we believe Carole Baskin started COVID19. And that's that.

All American

I'm a sucker for a good drama like this. 'All American' gave me vibes of a 'One Tree Hill' and 'Gossip Girl' mix. Now I'm trying to wait patiently for Netflix to release the third season!

Wonderland

'Wonderland' is an Australian TV show that we found on Amazon Prime. It's about a group of friends living in the same apartment complex that is called Wonderland. It's hilarious and has lots of great romance. 12/10 recommend.

Little Fires Everywhere

Hulu's 'Little Fires Everywhere' is a TV show version of the book by Celest Ng that stars my favorite, Reese Witherspoon. If you watched 'Big Little Lies', you will love this one. It killed us that episodes were only released on Wednesdays. But, the ending of the series gave us a lot of satisfaction in a weird way.

The Morning Show

Another Reese Witherspoon show on Apple TV+ that also stars Jennifer Aniston and Steve Carell. I definitely recommend you get a free one week trial of Apple TV+ and watch this show. We watched it in two nights.

Outer Banks

This has probably been my favorite series that we have watched. My sister and I say that we wish we wouldn't have watched it so we could start over often.

Waco

Before watching 'Waco', I was under a totally different impression of what actually went down. I'm sure some of it happened differently, but this mini series puts it in a different light. Finished in one sitting which isn't bad because it's educational, right?

One Mississippi

I'll be honest. When we decided to watch this series, I wasn't too pumped. But, I was quickly hooked by comedian, Tig Notaro's jokes and quick witted responses. Tig wrote the semi-autobiography about her life after her mother died unexpectedly and was forced to come back to her hometown. I normally am not a fan of dark comedies, but it was definitely worth the watch. ('One Mississippi' can be found on Amazon Prime.)

Dead To Me

Another dark comedy that is worth the watch. Christina Applegate and Linda Cardellni play two people who meet during a grief support group session, and quickly become thick as thieves.. literally. 'Dead to Me' will definitely keep you on your toes, and be prepared to be left on a shocking note especially after all seems okay again.

Sweet Magnolias

*SPOILER ALERT*

Just my mom, sister and I have watched this after my dad goes to bed. We always love a good Hallmark story line and this show does not disappoint. Although, the end of the first season left us on a huge cliff hanger, and the fact that we have to wait who knows how long to figure out who else was in the car with Kyle is really annoying.

Defending Jacob

"Defending Jacob" is based on a book that only my mom has read and knows the ending. It's about a boy in middle school who is accused for the murder of a classmate of his. The entire time you are battling, trying to figure out if he actually did it or not. A new episode is released on Apple TV+ each Friday and we only have one more left that we will definitely be watching this Friday. Hopefully the ending will finally let the truth be known.

What should we binge watch next?

College Boy Charm is Real and it's Very Sexy
Disney

After surviving a year of college and watching "Clueless" countless times, I've come to the conclusion that college boy charm is very much a real thing and it's very very attractive. It's easiest explained through Paul Rudd's character, Josh, in "Clueless". The boy who has a grip on his life and is totally charming. In this article, I will list the qualities of a specimen with College Boy Charm, to help you identify him at your next party or other social events.

Tik Tok Stars: Worth the Hype? or Overrated?

As Tik-Tokers rise to fame, do their 'copy-cat' dances deserve the clout?

Tik Tok Stars: Worth the Hype? or Overrated?

Oh, the wonders of social media. Trends come and go just as quick as a story on Instagram, everyone posting for their shot at fifteen minutes of fame, and the ever growing following of a new type of celebrity- social media influencers and content creators. Everyone who owns a smartphone probably has Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat, and now Tik-Tok, as it's growing to be a major social media platform for teenagers and young adults. Tik Tok became popular in the United States in late 2019 and since then has grown a considerable amount. Personally, I was one to make fun of Tik-Tok and say it was a dumb app like Musical.ly or Triller, and now months later, I spend more time on it than I do on Instagram.

Because self confidence is sexy

And as a woman, I want us all to love ourselves a little bit more today.

5528

Women have such high standards to live up to today. We’re expected to do and be so much. The great Tina Fey said “Every girl is expected to have Caucasian blue eyes, full Spanish lips, a classic button nose, hairless Asian skin with a California tan, a Jamaican dance hall ass, long Swedish legs, small Japanese feet, the abs of a lesbian gym owner, the hips of a nine-year-old boy, the arms of Michelle Obama, and doll tits. The person closest to actually achieving this look is Kim Kardashian, who, as we know, was made by Russian scientists to sabotage our athletes." This quote is not only hilarious, but also incredibly true! How many of you feel insecure every time you walk on campus, or every time you walk into a party? Even the girls you think are perfect are insecure. Everyone has flaws. Sure some flaws may be more exaggerated than others, but that doesn’t mean that the girl still feels bad about them. My point here is that it doesn’t matter how “perfect” you are, what matters most is how “perfect” you feel.

With the dawn of social media comes an entirely new character: the Facebook politician. Usually, articles or posts about politics are fairly sporadic. That is until a major event happens. Suddenly, everyone knows everything about everything. Everyone seems to have a very strong opinion. Everyone is super knowledgeable, and what better vessel of information than they themselves? Which is pretty reasonable, given that people’s emotions run high when something major happens. And I don’t blame them, emotions are good!

The Gift Of Basketball

The NBA playoffs remind me of my basketball journey through time

7538
Syracuse Basketball

I remember that when I was very little, my dad played in an adult basketball league, and I remember cheering him on with everything in me. I also remember going to Tuscola basketball games when the old floor was still there and the bleachers were still wooden. I remember always wanting to play basketball like my dad, and that's just what I did.
