Like most people, there are a number of TV shows I love. Quite a few are my favorites (have I mentioned Game of Thrones enough yet?). However, if I had to narrow it down to just one TV show that has left an impact on me or just stayed with me over the years – then I have to say Firefly.

American Horror Story, the first time I sat down and watched it – I loved it. Murder House was fantastic. Asylum was engaging. Coven was gripping. For me, though, it started to not be as good once Freak Show aired. I sat down and watched it, but I found it boring, and there was too much going on to really follow. Hotel was a little better, but it still was slow, and not that interesting to me. Roanoke was just kind of all over the place. I didn’t care for the reporter setup that much, and the story line could’ve been so much better.
So for me, AHS hasn’t been the same for quite a few years now. The new season, Cult, is to air on September 5 of this year. And the teasers look interesting, and provoking. However, AHS has always been great about making the teasers more scary than the show. So I’m not sure what to expect right now.

Okay, I just watched the latest episode of Game of Thrones (S07 E04), and… that ending! Game of Thrones is notorious for these kind of endings, but having to wait a week to see what happens next? That sucks.
WARNING: SPOILERS AHEAD!

After I finished watching Orange is the New Black, I was in a bit of a I-have-no-idea-what-to-watch-next kind of funk. So I decided to kick things a little old school and pick up on Charmed once again. A good friend of mine had bought me the first season for Christmas, but after finishing that I took a break from it for a while. In a way I was hoping to actually buy the series, but since it’s available on Netflix, I cheated.
Charmed was one of those shows I remember watching as a kid. Except, back then, I didn’t know that I came into the series when it was more than halfway over. Watching it now I realize that I believe I started watching it around the fifth season (and currently I’m only on Season Four). So it’s actually nice to be surprised and see that I’ve only seen bits and pieces of the original beginning. Being older now I have a deeper appreciation for the show, and it was one of the best shows I remember watching as a kid. It might even be the best witch show to be created, despite the bad special effects in the first few seasons – but that’s always a matter of opinion.

This show has to be one of the most talked about shows these days. Especially for a Netflix original! I only recently got Netflix, or rather I’m using my step-brother’s account). One of his conditions for me using his Netflix was that I needed to watch this show, Orange is the New Black, because it’s a “must-watch” and “super good!” So I told him alright, because I kept hearing about it and wanted to see what all the hype was about. And, also, right before I started watching this show I finished up another excellent drama called Prison Break (2005-2009), and it happened to fall in a similar theme.
Let me just say – the only thing I really new about OITNB is that there was a transvestite and lesbian action in it. Now I’m not gay myself, but I don’t have a problem with anyone who is (in fact, my step-brother is gay himself). Actually the fact that there are not that many shows that involve mainly lesbians or gays are rare to begin with. And the only show I know of, other than this one, that was close enough to involving someone who was transgender, was Degrassi.
