We are in the middle of award season which means there are tons of awesome new shows and movies to watch. I find a good TV series is something I enjoy more than a movie because it fits better when I only have a small window of downtime, where a movie is more of a commitment. Plus, I like to have the opportunity to get invested in the characters. Here are some shows I’ve been obsessed with lately!
If you are a crime junkie like me you will love this show. Remember Blaine from Glee, well just imagine that if he was a dark serial killer. Darren Criss kills it (quite literally) in this adaptation so far and I am glued to FX every Wednesday at 10.
2. This is Us
This video basically sums it all up. If Milo Ventimiglia popped out and surprised me, I’d probably be taken to be with the Lord at that exact moment. It’s honestly the most feel good, tear jerking, something for everyone show I’ve ever watched.
3. The Crown
I have a thing for the Royal family. I just think the Constitutional Monarchy of Britain is such an interesting institution. Claire Foy is really a queen herself. Honestly, I didn’t know that much about Queen Elizabeth’s early reign until I watched this and all I can say is, SO GOOD.
4. The Resident
Definitely a new favorite (and another former Gilmore Girls crush). Really I will watch anything Matt Czuchry does gladly. So far, this new medical drama is really good and I like the edginess of Matt’s character and I’m looking forward to see him develop more as the season progresses.
I thought I’d throw in an oldie for the last one! When I first started the show I figured a period drama would be kind of boring. Once I got into it though, this show made me laugh until I cried, and just always made me feel good when I finished an episode. I mean, Maggie Smith is in it, so you know it’s going to be ~fire~.
