Children's entertainment is usually on in some form or another in my house. Treehouse occupies the majority of daytime TV with the all the joys of preschooler programs. Evening programming is that of the older kids with pointless comedy like sponge bob square pants and Adventure Time. 

I don't mind so much, it's something they like and it entertains them. I don't mind but a certain time comes in the evening when it's time for the kids to be in bed and some adult programming to be seen. 

Before entertainment at our fingertips became popular I wasn't much for catching weekly programs. I either didn't have cable or I didn't have time. I would read about the latest, most popular shows but it would take me a lot to really have the energy to get into the show.

With so many choices like popular Cable On Demand, Netflix and other ways to endlessly stream virtually anything you want online, I've grown fond of a few shows. These shows are definitely not kid friendly, the shows mom watches aren't for kids!!

- The Walking Dead - Hubby started watching this one and I called it his "zombie show" until I actually sat and watched the first few episodes of season one. Hooked! Season five just began and it's still in my opinion one of the best shows if you like zombie apocalypse type stories. It's based on the comic book series and airs Sunday nights at 9pm on AMC. 

- Sons of Anarchy - Another show hubby began watching. I called it his "biker show". I watched the first few episodes and recognized some of the actors like Katy Sagal (Married with Children) and Ron Perlman. The story grows on you as the characters do and it became one of my favourites. I'm sad to see it on its final season but we all know good things must come to an end. SOA airs Tuesdays at 10pm on Super Channel in Canada and FX in the US.

- Orange Is The New Black - I wasn't sure about this one, I mean a show about a women's prison? I never thought I'd keep on watching. Again, a diamond in the rough. I heard so many good things about this show both in the media and from friends online, I had to check it out. I should be through season two in no time. Binge watching can be a dangerous past time. OITNB is a Netflix original so it's only fitting that's where you'll find it! 

These shows all have great story lines and characters that keep you on the edge of your seat making you want to keep watching to find out what happens next. 

What do you enjoy watching? Are there any shows you thought you wouldn't quite enjoy but we're surprised to fall for?

  1. Suits and Breaking Bad are ones I would highly recommend. I kept on hearing people talking them up. One day I was bored and started watching and found I couldn't stop.

    1. Thanks for stopping by! How could I forget about Breaking Bad! I have also heard great things about Suits but have yet to catch an episode. I think I will make a "to watch" list for the winter (when we hibernate!)! Thanks for the recommendations!
