If you chuckle at this pillow, then we are on the same page!
If not: go watch Stranger Things! We are not quite finished with season two, but it’s been a really good one! I think I like it more than season one.
Another great show we’re in the middle of is This Is Us! Everyone was talking about it, and we finally started. It’s been great. We paused when we caught up to season two so more episodes could accumulate. I prefer to watch TV on demand instead of one week at a time. My favorite character by far is Randall. (And I was so happy he won a Golden Globe!!) I think his character’s story is wonderful, Steling Brown’s acting is flawless, and Randall makes me laugh out loud with his corny jokes all the time. He and Beth are a couple I’d want to befriend in real life. I love their girls too! Kevin is… just a mess. Kate’s story is great, and I love where it has gone. (Chrissy Metz is also a fabulous actress.)
The third and final show I’ve been into this year: Girlfriends Guide To Divorce! Have you heard of it? It’s a total mash-up of Sex and the City and Big Little Lies. Without giving too much away, I can relate to so many things in this series, and it’s fun to watch too! There are three seasons on Netflix – run, don’t walk, home to start it this evening! (I didn’t even know there was a season 4 until just now because only the first 3 are on Netflix, but how exciting!)
Does anyone want pancakes for breakfast?
Sherry on Young House Love’s podcast recently recommended the show The Sinner on USA about a woman who murders a stranger on a beach. They said it’s really good, so I’m putting that on my list. What other shows are you guys into?!
Charmaine Ng | Architecture & Lifestyle Blog says
Yes, yes, yes to This Is Us! I honestly think it’s the best TV show I’ve watched in a while. None of that drama, romance stuff… I love family shows! 🙂

I love This is Us also! The writing and acting is so well thought out. I also fell in love with Stranger Things. The writing is so unique and the kids and other actors are amazing.
Love this! My husband and I have been watching “Turn” on netflix right now and i can’t say enough about it. It draws you in, has a bit of history, romance, suspense. A really great couples show. Annnndddd my current chick flick is the Bachelor! Are you watching this season? I really like Arie. I feel like he’s the first good Bachelor in a long time. Have a fab. day!
I am watching and I like him but don’t love him. Krystal is driving me nuts!!
Huge This is Us fan too, Randall is by far my fave. I was disappointed in The Sinner. It started out great but I hated the conclusion/wrap up and there were a few other things that made my ick factor boil over too. I personally would not recommend it but if you do decide to watch I’d love to hear your thoughts. I would recommend Victoria instead. It’s on the second season (on PBS) but I’m currently binge watching season 1 – it’s so good!
Interesting! I feel like now I have to watch it and see what I think.
I totally agree with this review of the Sinner! It started out strong but ended very disappointing.

I only have local channels (no cable where I live!) but have liked 9-1-1 on FOX. A little cheesy/over the top but a decent guilty pleasure drama with some romance thrown in.
Well, now I know what I’m watching tonight– Girlfriends guide to divorce! Thanks for sharing <3
I’ve wanted to start This Is Us, but we only have Netflix and Amazon Prime. I need to search to see if Amazon has it available. We LOVED LOVED LOVED Stranger Things! That pillow is awesome. =D
You can watch full episodes on NBC.com 🙂
The Good Place! Season 1 is on Netflix and season 2 is out as well. Such a fun, great show with a concept I’ve never watched on TV before.
I completely agree with you about The Good Place! My favorite comedy in a long time.
We just finished The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel on Amazon Prime and One Mississippi. Both were fabulous!
I started that but couldn’t make it through the first ep. Is it by episode?? or one long event?? I think I may have been too distracted while watching it and need to give it another shot. I liked a lot of the set up and had high expectations.
I have decided that I love This Is Us too much . . . like it’s a TV show . . . they’re NOT REAL PEOPLE! I so emotionally invested that idk if I can even watch the post Super Bowl episode.
it’s the only reason I’m going to TUNE INTO (the very final minutes of) the Superbowl! LOL
This is Us all the way! Sterling K Brown has racked up multiple Emmys, GG’s and SAG awards for his role! I <3 him! Fun fact, his real life wife appeared in season 1 as the black mother at the pool who advises Jack and Rebecca on how to care for young Randall's hair.
Oh fun about his wife! I didn’t know that!
Denise Vermillion says
Have you posted the pancake recipe at some point?! And I love, love, love This Is Us but I haven’t watched much of the second season because it’s just . . . so much. I will catch up when I need a good cry – or several!
I use the Great Harvest mix!
Catastrophe and Marvelous Mrs. Maisel on Amazon Prime
Catastrophe had me laughing out loud!!
The only one on your list I haven’t started is Stranger Things! I love Girlfriends Guide, This Is Us and The Sinner! They are all so well done. I have been a Nashville fan since the beginning, I would recommend it as well.
Yes I love Nashville!! I havent started the new season yet
Fellow Stranger Things fan! We have some Chief Hopper artwork in our kitchen saying ‘Mornings are for coffee and contemplation’ 😀
I’m in the UK so will need to check if we can get This is Us and Girlfriends Guide to Divorce. They soud great! I’m currently into season six of a French serial killer series called Spiral (Engrengages) which is amazing. I also love Crazy Ex Girlfriend (Season 1 was the best) and Narcos – we recently finished the third series. I didn’t tbink I’d be interested in a drama about drug lords but trust me it is amazing and sooooo tense! It proves that the truth really is way more out there than fiction!
Melanie Gilbert says
Mrs. Maisel is so terrific and The Crown is stellar. Also Catastrophe on Amazon is hilarious and poignant.
Laura Swanson says
I love This is Us and Stranger Things! Have you watched The Crown or Halt and Catch Fire?
Big fan of “This Is Us” but wondering how you can watch Season Two without completing Season One first? Each episode is pretty dependent on the ones that preceded it. It’s an unfolding story.
We watched season one and are waiting for season two to finish before starting it so we can watch it all at once!
Yes to the marvelous mrs maisel! Rectify was great too. I love that stranger things pillow! I agree, season two was way better than season one! Oh another good one on amazon Is called hand to god.
Rachel A says
The Crown – both season 1 and 2 are on Netflicks – was really great and the only thing that kept me on the treadmill recently. Looking for more suggestion’s.
On my list!
That pillow is fantastic!! Definitely one of the best shows out in a long time. I also love This Is Us. Jack and Randall are tied for the lead in my heart 🙂
Victoria and The Crown are fantastic as well. Highly recommend.
Pat Kilmain says
Love This is Us but since we diyched our cable I haven’t found it tipo stream. Watching Victoria, season 2 and love it. I’e been flying wtoo much lately so have dowloaded The Crown and Broadchurch from Netflix and do some binge watching on my ipad.
Nuts over This Is Us and The Crown. Friends just recommended Place Called Home to me.
I forget how I ran across Girlfriends Guide to Divorce but I did and I have really enjoyed it!
Linda @ the Fitty says
Watch cable girls! It’s my favourite and SOO girlfriend style.
Really? I liked stranger things 1 mòre.
Have you watched The Killing on Netflix? A murder mystery… very good. We also loved Ozark and can’t wait for season 2! If you like history you absolutely MUST watch The Crown! So so good!
Ozark is fantastic and Jason Bateman’s best role to date IMO.
Bloodline is another fantastic show on Netflix. Set in the FL Keys so the scenery is SO nice to watch this time of year for the rest of us not living in tropical paradise.
I loved Ozark!!! And I’m down for any show set in the tropics
You will definitely enjoy Bloodline. The black sheep comes home and all hell breaks loose as dark secrets start spilling out of a well respected family.
I love your review on This Is Us, it’s my favorite show! I love Randall because I want to be him …and Kevin because I can relate to him the most (probably because I’m a mess too ?????)
Penny Snyder says
I loved Broadchurch…British murder mystery and really good.
Grace and Frankie – 30 mins, 4 seasons, Netflix
Someone above mentioned The Killing on Netflix and I totally second that if you like detective shows. Also, if you haven’t watched Call the Midwife you must must must see it! It is such a heartwarming show and really interesting to see how much the process of giving birth has changed since the time period when it is set (1950s in East London). Plus…babiesssssss!! I tear up every time a baby is born on that show! 🙂
Are used to watch call the midwife and years ago but fell off the wagon. Is it still being produced?
Yes! There are 6 seasons on Netflix now.
Absolutely love Stranger things…we binged watched the second season over a weekend as soon as it was released! The kids are great actors and love all the 80’s references.
We loved Ozark, and can’t wait for the next season to air. Very gritty! Jason Bateman and Laura Linney were great, as was Julia Garner.
I would give The sinner a watch. I do agree with the previous comment regarding the end, but it was still gripping and Bill Pullman was amazing…such a different role for him.
How did I not realize that there is an Ozark season 2??
It hasn’t come out yet! This summer I think?
You should check out Crazy Ex-girlfriend on Netflix or Online through CW’s website. Super quirky and funny and entertaining.
THANK YOU — Kevin is such a mess and I hate when his storyline is the center of an episode, lol. Randall forever!
Poldark, PBS you can watch Season 1 and 2 on Amazon Prime, Season 3 you have to purchase. So good!!!!
Absolutely LOVE Girlfriends Guide to Divorce! Not my typical choice but man is it good. We have started Chefs Table on Netflix and that’s fantastic too!

Wow What a wonderful collection.. Thanks for sharing..
