What I've Been Watching: The Catch-Up Version

A little while ago I posted about summer TV shows I'd been watching and thought it would be fun to post about some older shows I've been watching as well. Even though I am a devoted reader, I also love watching TV, especially shows that are already a few seasons in because that way I don't have to wait for new episodes! A few of these shows I am really late to start watching, but that only makes me more invested in catching up.

Anyway, I would love to know your thoughts on these shows and if you have any other recommendations for me to start watching!

The Inbetweeners 

I am really enjoying this British show and can say I think it is so much better than the new American version (although I've watched two seasons of this one and only one episode of the US version, but still I just didn't connect with our version as much) Anyway, The Inbetweeners is hilarious and all of the actors are fantastic and real. The adventures and situations these four friends get into are often crazy, but always entertaining and show just how important strong friendships are. No matter what happens, Jay, Neil, Will, and Simon always have each other. 

This show is definitely not for younger viewers and there are plenty of f-bombs and sex jokes that might make some people uncomfortable. For me, I think this just makes it all the more believable and the British humor is a plus. I started watching this on a recommendation from my friend who lives in Wales and I've already watched the first two seasons on Hulu and am now quickly devouring the third! 

The Vampire Diaries 

(No spoilers in the comments please! I'm still working my way through season one!) 

I am officially addicted to The Vampire Diaries! Wow, I can't believe I waited so long to watch this show! I have started watching the first season with my best friend and we love it. All I can say is I am so glad there are two more seasons for me to sink my teeth into and although I probably won't be caught up by October, I'm still excited for the new season to start because it just means I'll have more Vampire Diaries to watch in the future! 

All of the characters, the mystery, the creepiness, the romance... this show has it all and I can't wait to see what happens next

Jane By Design 

Yes, I know this show was canceled, but I still want to finish watching the first season because I really like this show. I'm sad there won't be a second season because the plot and characters are all great and I have a soft spot for Billy! Anyway, I have been really enjoying this show and if you don't want to watch it now because there won't be another season, I say still give it a shot because it is a heartwarming and entertaining program that I think a lot of teens and adults will enjoy! Plus, the fashion is great!

Buffy the Vampire Slayer 

Not only is this another vampire show, it is another fantastically addicting show! I watched the whole first season this summer and while I know the series is supposed to just get better and better, I enjoyed it a lot. Buffy is a kick-ass main character and this show has just the right amount of creepy and fun. As I'm sure most of you have already seen Buffy I won't go into too much detail, but I just want to say I am anxious to get started on the second season and see what happens next!

What do you guys think of these shows? What are some TV programs you've been catching up on?


  1. Oh, I didn't know Jane by Design was cancelled! Here in my country is pretty popular though I've yet to see it. LOL

    and BUFFY is awesome!!! :D

    1. I really like Jane so was sad it was canceled! And Buffy is amazing :)

  2. Love The Vampire Diaries!

    I was so sad that Jane was canceled but hope you enjoy the rest of the season.

    Buffy is great. I have watched all the seasons (some of them more than once) :D

    1. I wish Jane wasn't canceled, but hopefully the final episode will bring some closure!

      I'm glad you love Buffy and the Vampire Diaries as well!


I love getting comments, so feel free to leave your thoughts :)
