Hello friends! It’s no question that I’m bad at keeping up with tv shows – I get bored, abandon them, or simply forget about them completely. With most shows it feels like the creators are milking them way past their limit, making them feel empty and meaningless. However, that has never stopped me from wanting to start new shows, particularly ones that have are already been wrapped up.
So, in a way to encourage myself to actually get to these shows, I’m sharing nine shows with you today – some old, some new – that I’d love to watch.
