4 Shows to Watch Right Now

I love finding a great, new television show to watch! I also love when we get recommendations so if you know of something great to watch let me know! Right now we've find a few new shows to occupy our time since several of our other shows have gone on break. Plus when it's a show that's available all at once (like Netflix shows) we burn through them fast! Here's a few shows that we've watched and really liked...

The Missing

My husband found this show and we just finished watching season one. Season one is about a man named Tony and his wife trying to find out what really happened to their son 8 years after he went missing. Tony has never given up in trying to find their son after he disappeared one night while they were on vacation in France from London. With the help of the original investigator they go on a journey to find Oliver the missing boy and to try to piece together what happened eight long years ago.

There is several seasons of The Missing out but we have only finished season one. Each season revolves around a different story line so season two will have all new characters in it.

Murder in the First

This show use to be on TNT but now it's available to stream on Hulu. There was three seasons of this show before it was cancelled and I have no idea why it was cancelled. It was so good! We watched the entire series in a weekend because we literally binged watched it for three days. The show is set in San Francisco and follows San Francisco homicide detectives Terry and Hildy who are partners. Together they work the streets of San Francisco. Each season is about a different murder/crime and their truth to find out who the killer is.

A fun fact for us was that Hildy's neighborhood in the show is actually the street where my husband's cousin lives so we would see their house in the background anytime they showed scenes with Hildy coming or going to her house. We love that it was set in S.F. because in all of the shows scenes you get to see more of the city.

I'm so worried their going to cancel this show. It's currently on NBC and they still have not confirmed a season two. Viewers continue voice their love of the show online but the network continues to harp on their numbers being low for live audience. Well I'm sorry but who's up at 10:00 p.m. on a Monday watching it live instead of watching it on DVR? This home girl has a job and can't stay up that late which is I'm sure the case for most people. I really do love this show so I'm hoping it gets a season two.

Lucy, Wyatt and Rufus find themselves in a different time period with every episode. They are a three man team that is working to save history because a man named Flinn is going back into time and changing big moments in history. Together these three will try to preserve history and not change the future in the process.


I want to pre-face this show by saying that I have always hated James Franco. I can't stand anything that he's in and usually refuse to watch anything with him in it. When I heard of this show though, I wanted to watch it because I love everything to do with the Kennedys. When watching this show, I actually don't have a problem with Franco. He does a good job in making me forget who he actually is.

In this eight episode mini series, Jake (Franco) goes back in time using a wormhole in the local diner to a time before JFK was assassinated. He's on a mission to make sure that the assassination doesn't happen. He lives in the past for three years to try and track down Oswald and learn if he's working alone or with others. He hides himself in history and tries to do everything in his power to keep JFK alive.

These are just a few of the things we've been watching on TV. What have you been watching?

I've gotten into Murder In The First but I think we're getting the second or third season here in Aus and I read it was axed after the third.

The James Franco one was available on Netflix or the Aussie equivalent Stan, so I haven't seen it.
