4 Shows You Need to Catch Up On


Available via Amazon Prime
We just finished watching season one and I loved it! I had no idea it was based on a book series until I was already finished with season one. Bosch is about Harry Bosch an L.A. homicide detective who's on the hunt for a serial killer. In season one we see him trying to reconnect with his daughter, working his cases and trying to get out of a legal mess from a previous case that ended bad. He's everything you think a real L.A. detective would be!
Season two just became available and I have a feeling we will be watching this over the weekend. I think I might even get the first book in the series and see if it's as good as the show. As far as I'm concerned the books are usually far better!

House of Cards

Available via Netflix
We binged watched Season 4 in three days and now we have to wait an entire year for season 5 to hit Netflix. It was just so good we couldn't stop watching. Season three was a little slow so I was worried that season four wouldn't be any good. Well we were pleasantly surprised because season four picked up the pace and didn't disappoint. Frank Underwood is back to his old tricks of lying, manipulation and deceit to hold on to everything he wants and needs. Set in Washington D.C. it follows Frank Underwood (Kevin Spacey) and his wife Claire (Robin Wright) who are a powerful political duo. They will stop at nothing to climb the latter of power in Washington and when things couldn't get any further out there they take it a step further. They have people helping them of course... Watch it from Season one because this show isn't one to be missed.

Available on dvd & Amazon Prime
Ok. I've talked about Girls before. I watched season one and didn't really know what to think. I wasn't for sure if I really liked the show or not. It was confusing to me. I couldn't understand why the characters behaved that way and got themselves into the situations they did even thought they didn't want to be in them. I pressed forward and watched season two. I laughed more and I actually started to understand them. I think during season one I was expecting this to be exactly like Sex and the City because the comparisons are there but these girls are younger, poorer and thoroughly confused. I'll be watching season three next.

Major Crimes
Available via TNT network
I have only watched the last two seasons of Major Crimes but it's entertaining and the characters are likeable. The show follows the homicide detective unit inside of the Los Angeles Police Department. By doing so we get to see the relationship that each character has with each other and how they intertwine. Each episode brings a new murder for them to solve. In this last season they spent have the season looking for a killer who had murdered several victims. If you haven't watched this show before tune in! I'm going to go back and watch the first few seasons that I missed!

I've heard such good things about house of cards so I'll have to watch it one of these days. I recently caught up on Dexter that I had stopped watching years ago and now I'm watching Gilmore Girls from the beginning and loving it all over again. :)
