Hey everybody! If you can’t tell, we’re pretty much on coast around here until the weekend. We’re soaking up the calm before the storm since we knocked out some big projects. Lisa and I are super excited about the return of some of our favorite television shows. In reality, we’re watching all of these on Hulu+ and not actually on our TV. Same thing though, right?
1. 30 Rock. We started watching this show while Lisa was on her maternity leave. About five years late to the party, we really took to this show. Liz Lemon gets quoted a lot around here. What the what? She’s also originally from the Philly area and has dropped some Flyers and Bobby Clarke references on the show before. Really looking forward to this one.
2. Community. We started watching this show while waiting for 30 Rock to resume and I was shocked at how funny it is. I personally think Community is actually funnier than 30 Rock. The humor is a little less subtle, but very clever. Every character on this show brings a unique comedic flavor that usually leaves Lisa and I in stitches. The cast is brilliant. This is another show we started watching late. We picked it up on Hulu after season three and quickly blew through every episode. The school dean is a riot and we pretty much quote him all day long. “Sweet Deans.”
3. The New Girl. This was one of those shows that Lisa checked out. She was hooked after the first episode. Halfway through the first season I started watching it with her. Very good show. The cast has great chemistry and the episodes are always fun stories. The characters are all in their mid to late twenties, are approaching the “you should be married by now” age and are dealing with their respective places in life. After a couple episodes you’ll get attached to the cast and start rooting for them. We recommend it.
4. The Mindy Project. Not going to lie. I’ve only seen one episode. Lisa’s watched two so far. It’s hugely funny. Mindy Kaling has a sharp biting wit that’s refreshing and most definitely worth watching. I think it’s brand new. Check it out.
Honestly, we don’t watch a ton of TV. We’ve mainly watching a show here and there before bed with an iPad. These four shows will definitely be on our radar though this fall along with the occasional Modern Family and Happy Endings now and then.
Are you looking forward to any shows this fall??
