What We Are Watching: Summer 2014

I don’t watch movies, but I do like my TV. I never liked to admit that for some reason. I guess in this day and age everyone watches some sort of TV though. Whether you still wait for show time to start, or you stream via Hulu (Netflix if you’re binging), or even the network’s site, but you are watching something.

Anyways, these are my current favorites this Summer! (By the way, I prefer Hulu!)

Mistresses

So glad I ran into this gem, though I didn’t catch the first season (I will Netflix it) I am up to speed on the second one. This show is so real. It’s filled with drama, and I just can’t stop watching. It’s one of those where you’re just sitting in front of the TV asking “Why did you do that??” or “Noooo! Just tell him you love him!”, you know what I mean? (I hope so…). This show is about 4 sophisticated, successful, and independent women – Savi, Karen, April, and Joss. They are searching for love and figuring it out as it comes. There are tons of affairs, hence the tittle, but the show is showing the other side – the complicated side. The side that’s never told. The season is not that far in so you can still tune in and catch up. Mistresses is on ABC – Mondays at 10pm EST.

Finding Carter

This show is terrifying! Okay, maybe I’m overreacting. I don’t watch MTV anymore. It’s a little weird now, or maybe I’ve just grown up. Not quite sure. I saw the promo for this show on Hulu and watched the first 2 episodes there. Oh My! I really like this show. It’s kind of weird to explain but imagine being arrested and finding out you’re a missing child… ehh, that’s weird. Carter Stevens is a 16-year old girl who loves her mother, or who she believes to be her mother. The first scene of the pilot you can see they have the most amazing relationship mom-daughter can have. Carter gets arrested with a few of her friends after trespassing. Her mom never comes to bail her out because after running her prints the police find out she was in fact Lyndon Wilson, a child who was kidnapped from her front yard. If that’s not complicated enough now she has to go live with her biological family whom she has not been around since she was 3-years old. That’s where the fun begins. Finding Carter is on MTV – Tuesdays at 10pm EST.

Undateable

I don’t care what Rotten Tomatoes says!! I LOVE THIS SHOW. This is another one of my Hulu finds, and it’s a treasure. First off, there have not been any new episodes in 2 weeks, which worries me, and I have not seen anything stating the season is over. Nothing! I am worried. Second, this show is filmed in front of a live audience and that throws in a great energy. Danny Burton is a 30something single guy without a care in the world. I don’t think he even works (must be nice!) His roommate, Justin, is the total opposite. Justin is an entrepreneur and owns a bar in Detroit called “Black Eyes”, which is where the show takes place 99.9% of the time. They have an odd group of friends – Shelly, Burski, Brett, and Leslie (Danny’s sister). In a nutshell the show illustrates how different all theses people can be but how at the end of the day friendship brings them together. So cliché, I know, but it’s funny! Undateable is on NBC – Thursdays at 10pm EST.

Hmmm, I just noticed all my favorite shows go on at 10pm. Even the ones in the fall. Well, tune in and let me know what you think of these!
