Nine Must-Watch TV Shows

Must Watch TV Shows

I love TV. I become invested in the characters and committed to the storyline. Can any of y'all relate?  The first show I ever remember having that connection to was Sex And The City. However, about a year ago I canceled my cable plan. I found that I was watching all of my favorite shows after they had aired, and it was a waste of money for me. All I have now is Apple TV and occasionally I use Sling. I haven't really missed my cable subscription at all. I'm sharing this little bit of personal info. in case any of you all are considering doing the same thing. I really can't recommend it enough if your circumstances are similar to mine.


I never share posts like this - those posts about what bloggers are reading or watching. So, I thought today I would mix things up a bit and give you guys a peek at what you can find on my watch lists on my Apple TV! Let me know if you watch any of these shows or have any recommendations!


1. GOOD GIRLS REVOLT (Amazon Original) - I am so bummed there's only one season of this show. It's entertaining and witty, but packs a punch with the content it addresses. You'll be able to relate to the female interaction and bonds that form.

2. POWER - This show isn't going to be for everyone, heads up. But I was quickly hooked and would watch it all over again. 50 Cent is one of the executive producers and also stars in the show. NYC, drugs, night club life, a heated affair - it's one hundred percent drama.

3. FRIDAY NIGHT LIGHTS - Darn you, Netflix, for taking this away! Ugh. One of my favorite shows of all time. Tim Riggins, you're a heartthrob. Tami Taylor, you're my spirit animal.

4. THE NIGHT MANAGER - This miniseries will have you clicking "next episode" as quickly as possible. Tom Hiddleston and Hugh Laurie are brilliant in their roles.

5. HOW TO GET AWAY WITH MURDER - I've watched this show since the beginning and still think Viola Davis is the greatest. I'm really looking forward to the upcoming crossover episodes with Scandal.

6. GAME OF THRONES - I was late to the party with this one, but blasted through every season in about two weeks. Again, this is a series that isn't going to be for everyone, but those who love it are next-level committed.

7. EMPIRE - Cookie Lyon. That's basically all you need to know. Oh, and the original music is bomb.

8. THE MARVELOUS MRS. MAISEL (Amazon Original) - This will give you all the girl power feels. I wasn't raised in a Jewish home, but there are so many things about Midge's life that are relatable. And there's nothing I don't love about vintage style, witty women, and a well-timed F bomb.

9. MAD MEN - This one had to grow on me. I wasn't sold on Mad Men at first - it actually took me all of season one to really catch on to the hype. And then it picked up speed, and I couldn't stop until I had finished. It's another show with fascinating, strong female roles that balance (and at time overshadow) the sexism of the era.
