Oh, woe is summer TV! All of our favorites are on hiatus, but we live in a Netflix world. I don’t know about you, but I’ve got a long list of To-Watch TV, specifically shows I’ve started, really like, and never got the opportunity to finish. I thought I’d share it with you in case you need any suggestions to keep you busy this summer. I’m a little embarrassed that I haven’t finished some of these… but, here goes, in no particular order:
I’ve just got the last season of Dexter to go, but from what I’ve heard from friends, I’m in no rush to watch it. Still, I loved Dexter so far, and I feel like I need to see it through. I might want to rewatch the whole series before launching into the final season, which could make this a longer project.
Now this one I’m really embarrassed about, since House is one of my absolute favorite shows of all time. I feel like a fraud even saying that, having not seen the whole series! (That might just be me being OCD though.) I was watching happily in the days of Huddy in season 7, and I own the first 6 seasons on DVD. My college job interfered with season 7, so I lost track before the end of the season. Knowing what happened, because I was on tumblr then, I avoided finishing season 7 or, worse, watching a season without Cuddy. It’s a must-do, though, especially now that it’s on Netflix.
I know a new season hit Netflix rather recently, but before that I was up to date with this one. The problem: the long episodes kind of gave me trouble. I’m used to a shorter format and I didn’t really pay attention. I do other things while I watch TV a lot, and it’s not a problem to rewatch a half hour show. With Sherlock, I plowed through. I really need to go back and give this series the attention is deserves.
4. Pretty Little Liars
Oh gosh, this kills me because I know the new season is actually on now, and I’m actually missing all the fun and the making-fun of Aria’s outfits. Now that the most recent finished season is on Netflix, I should be able to catch up. I had watched part of it live, but I’m terrible with current TV if I haven’t made that clear enough. I should catch up before I get too behind again!
5. Breaking Bad
I must have like, 5 episodes left since Netflix added half of the last season, then the latter half later. It’s ridiculous that I haven’t finished this yet. Maybe I just don’t want it to end. I think the mood just hasn’t been right. I usually watch TV before I go to bed, and with work so busy, I want something mindless. That’s probably the reason that all of these shows remain unfinished. I’ve got to knock this one out before the summer is over!
Okay, now you know my dirty secrets… I’ve got a lot of unfinished business on Netflix!
Keep streaming, my friends!
