8 Shows You Should Be Watching…

1. Enlisted – The cast is hilarious, the writing is amazing and the show has so much heart. It deals with real issues of PTSD, but is also basically just an office comedy at the center. All of the episodes are on Hulu and Fox.com and there are FOUR episodes left to air this season! You will laugh. You will cry. You will want to hang out with the cast and crew during their weekly live-tweets.

2. Masters of Sex  – I absolutely loved the first season of this Showtime show. The cast performances were fantastic and the fact that it is based on real people made it incredibly fascinating to me. Season Two premieres in July, so you have plenty of time to catch up!

3. Trophy Wife – The title of this show does not do it justice and was actually always meant to be ironic. Malin Ackerman plays Bradley Whitford’s very hot third wife, but she also tries extremely hard to be a good mom and is actually in love with her older husband, not just married for the money. This is another comedy where every member of the ensemble was so well cast and has great chemistry.

4. Orphan Black – Even though this show is getting rave reviews from critics, I feel like the general public has still not yet caught on to its amazingness. You will get hooked by the first episode and proudly proclaim yourself part of the Clone Club. Season Two premieres on April 19th and I am unabashedly excited.

5. Suburgatory – As someone who grew up in the suburbs, I find this to be pretty hilarious. It took me a while to really get into it, but now it is one of the shows that I look forward to every week. I love Tessa and George’s father/daughter dynamic and the supporting cast is always amazing.

6. The Crazy Ones – When this show started, I thought that Robin Williams might overpower the rest of the cast and I would eventually lose interest, but that has definitely not been the case. Each actor holds their own and often even takes the spotlight. There are even hilarious outtakes at the end of every episode!

7. Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. – It took a while for this show to find its footing, but I am glad I stuck with it because the last few episodes have blown my mind. This is the first time a network has tried to tie a movie franchise, like the juggernaut that is Marvel, in with a current series, but they have done it well. I cannot wait to see where the rest of this season takes us.

8. Looking – I have heard this show referred to as the ‘gay version of Girls,’ but I think it is A LOT better than Girls. Even as a straight woman, I relate so much more to these characters than I do to Hannah her friends. The episodes move a little slowly at times, but the character development is profound.
