friday five – channel surfing

It is no secret that I’m addicted to The Mindy Project. However, I do watch other shows. So in the spirit of Friday Five, here are five shows that I am loving right now.

Jane the Virgin – I’ve always wondered if this (getting accidentally inseminated, getting pregnant, but still be a virgin) could really happen. So when I first saw a commercial for this show, I was immediately intrigued. It is set up almost like a Spanish soap opera , which is like an American soap opera with more drama. It’s got comedy, drama, and most importantly, romance. And the guys are really cute.


Mob Wives – I’ve watched this trainwreck from the very beginning.  The last two seasons weren’t so great, but this one seems to be doing well. Especially since the Godmother herself made an appearance. The Godmother being Victoria Gotti. And she was faaabulous.

Hindsight – (sidenote: to those of you who are, like me, obsessed with makeup videos on youtube – the girl who plays Becca looks exactly like Elle Fowler of All that Glitters fame.) If I wasn’t lazy and changed the channel when Mob Wives was over about two weeks ago, I would have never found this gem. It’s set in 1995 so right away, I’m hooked. 1995 was 20 years ago, by the way. I’ll give you a minute to let that sink in because I know I needed one. Anyway, it’s filled with 90’s goodness. Beepers, Doc Martins, Walkmans, VCRs, etc.They even played some Mariah Carey in the episode before last. Because the 90’s were just about the last time she was worth listening to.

Mariah. Girl, I know that was harsh, but it’s true. I was a huge fan of yours back then. And then Charmbracelet happened. I think we both know that was the beginning of the end. I do, however, still love you as the diva icon you are.

Chasing Life – I don’t know why but I love a good cancer show or storyline. Like when Spinner had cancer on Degrassi or Red Band Society, which was not given a fair chance if you ask me. Anyway, this is one of those good cancer shows. I’m glad it’s finally back from hiatus because my Monday nights were getting pretty lonely.

Big Women: Big Love – I know I said I was going to do a whole post on this one, and I still might. It took about two episodes for me to decide if I even liked the show. I really do. I see a lot of myself in these women. Except Jess. She (seemingly) has more confidence in one strand of hair on her head then I have in my whole body. I wish they would stop complaining how they don’t have a man because of their bodies. Two reasons – 1) I know how they feel. I live it everyday. I don’t need to be reminded of it from people on my TV. 2) I know for a fact that losing weight doesn’t guarantee a man. Not even a sparkling personality or winning smile guarantees a man. Believe me. I have both and I’m still on the vine, so to speak.
i’m thinking a full post is definitely in order. keep your eyes peeled.
