Here are some shows I’ve been watching lately. I think that a lot of shows I’ve watched should’ve been mini series because how many times can things repeat? For example, How to Get Away With Murder, The 100, The Last Ship, etc.
If you read my post on Movies & Shows – Faves of 2017 & Most Anticipated for 2018, you’ll know that I had a list of shows to watch:
- The Crown
- Big Little Lies
- The Handmaid’s Tale
- The Alienist
- Altered Carbon
- The Good Doctor
- Tell Me A Story (not released yet)
I have watched 5 of the shows on the list since that last post and I saw the first episode of The Good Doctor; I just haven’t gotten around to finishing the first season.
The Crown – 2 seasons aired
I look forward to seeing Olivia Colman and Helena Bonham-Carter as Queen Elizabeth II and Princess Margaret.
Big Little Lies – 1 season aired
I can see how Nicole Kidman and Alexander Skarsgard won all those awards, but I don’t know if I liked this that much. I don’t know if I’ll be watching the second season (even with Meryl Streep in it).
The Handmaid’s Tale – 2 seasons aired
I thought the first season was better, but I will continue watching.
The Alienist – 1 season
It was an interesting mini series, but I was expecting more from it. Maybe I should’ve read the book- my mom read it and said she really liked it.
Altered Carbon – 1 season aired
The first season was good, it has an interesting concept. It was renewed for a second season with Anthony Mackie aka The Falcon from Captain America/The Avengers.
Westworld – 2 seasons aired
I’m going to be honest, I was a bit confused while watching the second season. I may have to re-watch it.
Brooklyn Nine-Nine – 5 seasons aired
I had always planned to watch this, but I wanted some of my other shows to finish first. It’s become my new show that I have on in the background when I’m on the computer.
12 Monkeys – 4 seasons
I just finished the third season and I can’t wait to watch more. Hopefully it ends well.
The Bold Type – 2 seasons aired
I loved the finale and can’t wait until next season!
Shows that wrapped up this season (will be ending once it’s finished airing):
Quantico – 3 seasons
I think the first season was the best season. The original showrunner was replaced for the third season and it really changed the series. In the first two seasons, there were plots that lasted for the whole season. In the third season, they changed it to episodic plots and then had an arc for the last few episodes. The show was cancelled after they had filmed the end of the season, so you don’t really get closure.
The Originals – 5 seasons
I was disappointed by the last season and the series finale. I won’t be watching the spinoff, Legacies.
Shades of Blue (1 more episode to air) – 3 seasons
Hopefully this ends well.
12 Monkeys – 4 seasons
I like time travel shows. I finished the first season and I just started the second. I look forward to seeing what happens.
Once Upon A Time – 7 seasons
This should’ve ended a while ago, but they definitely should’ve ended the show after the sixth season when the main characters left.
Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt – 4 seasons
I didn’t really love this, but it was something short to watch. I didn’t like the most recent episodes, but I’ll watch the rest to finish the series.
Shows that I think should end after next season. As much as I like these shows, they’ve run for too long:
- Criminal Minds – 13 seasons aired
- The 100 – 5 seasons aired
- Agents of SHIELD – 5 seasons aired
- How to Get Away with Murder- 4 seasons aired
- Arrow- 6 seasons aired
- 13 Reasons Why – 2 seasons aired
Shows I stopped watching:
- Suits – airing 8th season
- I stopped watching after season 3
- New Girl – ended after 7 seasons
- I didn’t watch the last two seasons
Shows that are ending this season (2018/2019 season):
- Modern Family – planned to end after 10 seasons
- The Big Bang Theory – ending after 12 seasons
- iZombie – ending after 5 seasons
- Jane the Virgin – ending after 5 seasons
- The Last Ship – ending after 5 seasons
- Game of Thrones – ending after 8 seasons
