When my parents bought us a dvd player last Christmas I was more excited about the free month of Netflix than I was the actual dvd playing part of the gift. I had never used Netflix, but my brother showed me how you connected it to the Internet in your house and were able to stream movies and tv shows in seconds.
I became hooked. I purchased Netflix before the free month was over. My favorite part about Netflix is the TV section – I have gotten to see shows that have been cancelled, Kyle XY, and rewatch some of my favorite Felicity and Dawson’s Creek episodes.
Most recently I began watching Parenthood. After hearing about the show’s amazingness from my best friend Nikki, I decided to check it out.
I am now addicted to Parenthood.
I can’t stop watching it….yesterday I watched 11 episodes in a row. Back to back. Some were even watched on the floor of my bedroom while my iPad was charging.
My favorite part about the show is how real it is. I think I cry (or tear up) at least once every episode. Sometimes I can relate to what is happening, and other times I can imagine myself in the situations sometime in the future. The story lines are not predictable, there is no repetition, and none of the characters annoy me. All pluses in my book.
It is a little crazy how obsessed I am with this show...I even dreamed about an episode last night.
I think it is so weird how a tv can consume a person.
Every time I watch an episode I miss my family. I also start to wonder what it would be like to have four children – so they all grow up and have children and then me and B have the same big happy family they have on the show. It also makes me want to be a mom sooner than later.
I am super tired this Monday morning … I had a terrible night’s sleep. All I want to do is spend my day in bed watching my new favorite show, but I have to be a grown-up and go to work.
The sucky part about watching this new show is that I am only on the second season, so I don’t have anyone to talk to about what I have been seeing.
Do you watch Parenthood?
