Hi, I’m Ashley and I blog over at The Nashvillian where I share my experiences with food, fashion, and fun in Nashville and occasionally other parts of the world…and on Fridays, I offer movie and TV recommendations! Today, I thought I’d share with you some of those recommendations.
If you’re anything like me, you probably love binge-watching shows on Netflix. It’s so easy to continue watching episode after episode until suddenly the end of the season is upon you and you have to wait months for Netflix to release the newest season. It’s agonizing when all you want to do is keep watching! So, today I’m sharing with you my favorite tv shows on Netflix available in their entirety – start to finish!
How I Met Your Mother. This show is about a group of friends with the main focus being Ted, who is on the search for the love of his life. Ted narrates the story in the future (the 2030s, I believe) by explaining to his kids how he met their mother (the actual events take place in present time). It is so cleverly done because. As with any story told by anyone, some points are occasionally exaggerated. Often, the viewer is unaware whether something actually happened exactly as Ted is describing or if he is exaggerating/forgetting details. The cockamouse episode, however, is obviously exaggerated. 😉 You have to watch this show from start to finish to fully appreciate it. Each episode builds on the last and later episodes often make references to older episodes. Without a doubt, you will grow to love the characters!
Weeds. Nancy is a widowed mother of two who turns to selling weed in order to pay her bills. The first few seasons are exceptionally bingeable as Nancy finds herself in predicaments not typical for a suburban mother, with each episode leaving you craving more. It begins to taper off after that when the predicaments become more and more unbelievable. However, the show still manages to be 100% addicting. And that theme song – so catchy!
30 Rock. This show follows Liz Lemon (Tina Fey),the head writer for a live sketch show, TGS (basically, SNL). All characters are so well developed, from the fictional head of NBC to the TGS actors to the NBC Page. It’s basically an overly-dramatized, comical glimpse behind the scenes of SNL. And it’s so good!
Lost. A completely addictive show, Lost is about a plane crash leaving a group of strangers stranded on an island where weird things start to happen. You will breeze through the first few seasons. The later seasons start to get really weird, but you’ll still find yourself unable to stop watching.
The Office. Surely you’ve heard of Michael Scott and the paper company, Dunder Mifflin. Maybe you’ve seen a few episodes, but haven’t watched the whole thing? Well, I’m telling you right now, it’s worth it. When you watch each episode in succession, you get to truly know each character, which makes it even more enjoyable and even more hilarious.
