What I've Been Watching: TV in the New Year

I always love seeing what TV shows other bloggers are watching and since I've been watching some new shows this year I thought I'd post about them! I'd love to hear what shows you've been watching in the new year and your thoughts on any of these!

-- Catch-Up Shows 

The Big Bang Theory 

I am loving this show so, so, so much! I've been watching this show with my family and we've already flown through the first two seasons. The characters are so lovable and complex and I adore each of them in their own way. I've caught a few episodes of this on TV through the years, but I'm especially enjoying watching the episodes in order and watching the characters grow. Each episode always makes me laugh and there has not been one episode that I haven't liked. I cannot wait until I have the remaining seasons in hand!

Game of Thrones 

I read the first book, A Game of Thrones, over my winter break and immediately began watching the first season. It is incredible to see all of my favorite (and not-so-favorite) characters brought to life and to experience everything in a new way. I'm about halfway through the first season right now and am planning on starting the second book when I'm done. 

-- New Shows 

Nashville 

Wow, do I love Nashville! I've been watching this show since the first episode and am completely addicted. The characters, the plot twists, the music, the setting... everything about it is great. I'm glad this show is gaining more popularity because I would be so disappointed if it was canceled. I've downloaded all the music on my iPod and this is one of those shows that I have a hard time waiting to watch week to week! 

The Mindy Project 

This is one of the funniest shows out there (in my opinion). I find Mindy hilarious and I love how she is such a real and likable character. I got a little behind on this show over the past few weeks, so I had a catch-up day this weekend and was reminded just how much I enjoy The Mindy Project. All of the characters are unique and layered and each episode always brings a smile to my face. Fox has such great comedies-- New Girl is also one of my favorites and I had been enjoying Ben and Kate, so I was sad to hear it was being canceled! 

I'm also planning on starting The Carrie Diaries. Has anyone watched it? What did you think? 

What do you guys think of these shows? What have you been watching lately?

    2. Ahh it's such a long list: Bones, Supernatural, The Office, Vampire Diaries, Glee, Downton Abbey, The Walking Dead, How I Met Your Mother.

      I also just started watching The Following. It's pretty gory but if you don't mind that it's really good.

  4. I can't stop watching TV recently lol. I really love The Big Bang Theory and I've watched a season of Game of Thrones and really liked it! The only issue I had with it is I was kind of confused with all of the characters so I might pick up the books so I can follow along better :P

    Oh and if you love Sex and the City as much as I do, I think you'll like The Carrie Diaries. It's kind of like an ABC teen drama mixed with Sex and the City. I adore it so far :)

  5. I love BBT! I own all the seasons so far!! :D It's just so much fun and like even now that they have introduced two other female regulars, the show is still so good.

    Game of Thrones, the first season was awesome.

    I liked Nashville in the beginning but then each episode stared to feel like the last.

    1. No worries! I'm on Season Three of BBT right now and can't get enough of it. Nashville is getting to be a bit too much lately, but hopefully it will get back to it's original rhythm soon!
