No matter what my mood is, there is always a great show or movie to watch. Normally, I used to gravitate towards corny romantic comedies in my 20’s, and even I’m not hugely into action movies, I still enjoy Spiderman from time to time. But now that I’m a little older, I enjoy more diverse entertainment with a little more substance.
Although I still enjoy a good chick flick from time to time, I like that it’s not the variety where the woman makes desperate attempts to get married, where everyone breaks into song every 5 seconds. Instead, we now have movies, like 500 Days of Summer, where the male is the features one trying to find love, or Chef, where food is the object of ones affection, or even Begin Again (<3), where music is the main plot. It makes for more interesting and captivating entertainment and I really enjoy that non-formulaic turn that movies are starting to get away from.
TV shows that i love, also include Blackish, a show about a black family’s place in American society, Girls, Portlandia, hilarious and quirky, Parenthood, that I’ve watched for 5 years and unfortunately is in it’s last season (4 more episodes left). Not too long ago, I’ve added to my list, The Walking Dead, If you haven’t seen it, then you should get the DVD’s or order on Netflix. Seriously, like the best show on television right now.
Awkward Black Girl and Hello Cupid are also fun shows to watch if you like to watch shows online.
