Happy 2019!! Post holiday I tend to be a bit of a homebody. January is bitter cold in Boston, so far no snow but still very gray and dreary. In other words it’s the perfect time to binge a new TV show! Between Netflix, Hulu, and Amazon Prime I always have something new to watch.
1.The Mindy Project
I know I’m a little late to the party but The Mindy Project on Hulu is hilarious! A young woman in New York struggles through life may be a classic story line but The Mindy Project manages to make it fresh and will keep you laughing the entire time. A solid 6 seasons lets you spread it out a bit.
Ever wonder what would happen if the Devil came to Earth? Throw a raging party every night and team up with the LA police to catch criminals, duh! Lucifer is a drama but with a lot of comic relief, Tom Ellis plays the lead Lucifer Morningstar. It originally aired on Fox for its first 3 seasons and Netflix has picked it up and is currently filming season 4, which is expected out sometime in 2019. So if you fall in love there is more coming soon!
I raved about this movie on my story one night after I watched it. Staring Jennifer Aniston and Danielle Macdonald, it is such a heart warming story. As a former pageant girl I am normally super disappointed by movies and TV shows that involve pageants. They normally play to all the cheap stereotypes, but by the end of Dumplin’ I couldn’t stop smiling! Netflix originals have been very hit or miss for me lately and this one was a hit!
4. The True Cost
For all my sustainability warriors out there! The True Cost examines the environmental impact of “fast fashion”. This documentary was really eye opening for me, if you want to learn more about how the clothes you wear have a ripple effect this is a must watch! The waste, out of control consumerism, and horrible labor practices found at many fast fashion brands will definitely have you re-thinking where you shop. Start 2019 by making a small change for a better world.
5. Below Deck
I really don’t like many reality TV shows, but this one is a must watch! It currently airs on Bravo but I end up watching it via Amazon every week. I would recommend watching all the seasons, they are available for purchase on Amazon! I personally like the original better than the Mediterranean seasons, but they’re all great! See what it’s like to vacation on a super yacht and all the juicy drama among the crew.
Tell me what you’re currently binging! I am always looking for new shows, I just finished The Mindy Project and definitely need a new comedy!
