Summer Shows

Sorry it's been so long since I last blogged. 

I was standing on line for a cronut.

Kidding.  Nobody can get their mitts on one of those.

I've actually been distracted because I started an awesome new job!  Wait... what's that you ask?  Did I get myself a present to celebrate like I like to do?

Well, I might (and I will) and if (when) I do, it will definitely be something small (or big).  I mean, who needs a boyfriend to buy you stuff (when a handbag named Louis follows you home)?

Now, if you're anything like me, you love summer because you can catch up on TV.  Oh sure, there's sunshine, and s'mores, and fireflies.  They're swell too.

But mostly, it's the TV.  Also, the s'mores (and I wonder why I buy my own handbags). 

Anyway, if you find yourself one day, with nothing but the telly and some time, crank up the AC and slather on a full season of these shows. 

I promise, you won't get burned.

(Couldn't resist...)

House of Cards
Netflix Original Series
13 episodes

The plot in 10 words or less: Some people will do anything to become President.

The Americans
14 episodes

The plot in 10 words or less: Felicity is a Russian spy living in the 1980s.

The star: Matthew Rhys as Phillip Jennings

Why watch:  It's fun to watch a show where the highest tech spy gadget is a wig and a moustache.  Plus the Rubix Cube makes a guest appearance.  Really, what's not to love?

Bates Motel
11 episodes

The plot in 10 words or less: Modern-day prequel to Psycho, Norman still creepy, has iPhone.

The star: Vera Farmiga as Norma Bates

The star: Connie Britton as Rayna James

New Girl
