Don't Knock It Till You Try It: D.C. Comics

You'll never know if you don't try.

Don't Knock It Till You Try It: D.C. Comics

*Disclaimer: I haven't seen everything D.C. Comics has done... yet*

Here's the thing... after watching pretty much everything relatively good on Netflix, I found myself re-watching and re-watching the same shows because there was nothing else left to watch.

That is until I found "Arrow" and "The Flash." A friend of mine kept telling me to watch the two shows and I kept saying: "No. I don't like superhero stuff." However, that was all before I even gave it a shot.

I always said I was never a comic book or superhero kind of gal. Once I started watching "Arrow" I literally couldn't stop. I went through all four seasons of the show in three days.

Arrow is a good way to ease into the D.C. Comics world. It's not about superheroes with special powers they got from toxic waste or anything. It's about a person who has a mission to save his city. It's real, emotional, witty and surprisingly relatable.

What bothers me the most about most people is that no one ever just tries something for the hell of it. There always has to be something in it for them. I've recently adopted the motto: "Don't knock it till you try it." How will you ever truly know if you do or don't like something if you don't try it?

After "Arrow," I had to give "The Flash" a shot because they did some cross over episodes in "Arrow" so I figured it was only fair. "The Flash" is definitely a little more "superhero-y." Their bad guys are more superpower people and their main character has a superpower. I liked "The Flash" a lot because looking over the superpower stuff, much like "Arrow," the show is emotional, witty, and relatable. The two shows made me feel something, which I wasn't expecting, but glad it did.

Since catching myself up with these two series (although I haven't watched season two of "The Flash" yet because it's not on Netflix) I've been desperately awaiting their return to the CW Network this fall. The writing and character development on both shows is incredible and for those reasons alone, worth the watch.

Now, anytime someone asks me what show to start on Netflix I tell them either "The Flash" or "Arrow." Every single person comes back with "I don't like comic stuff" and as I said earlier, I hate that because they don't even know if they like it or not.

Believe me, before I watched "Arrow," I "hated" comic stuff, too. But I tried it and I actually liked it. I found something to be passionate about through these shows. Before you say no to trying new foods, T.V. shows, movies or books, at least give them a chance.

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.

Top 10 Reasons My School Rocks!

I was asked so many times why I wanted to go to a small school when a big university is so much better. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure a big university is great but I absolutely love going to a small school. I know that I miss out on big sporting events and having people actually know where it is. I can't even count how many times I've been asked where it is and I know they won't know so I just say "somewhere in the middle of Wisconsin." But, I get to know most people at my school and I know my professors very well. Not to mention, being able to walk to the other side of campus in 5 minutes at a casual walking pace. I am so happy I made the decision to go to school where I did. I love my school and these are just a few reasons why.
