Friday Night on the Telly

When the end of the week rolls along, I don’t know about you, darlings, but I’m often ready to relax, kick-back and watch a good show with my ultimate concierge.

There is something about the weekend that just calls for glorious R&R: the feeling of being able to do nothing and everything all at the same time. But, remember when it was easy to just turn on the TV and find a sitcom such as M.A.S.H. to watch during a cozy evening in?

What Should I Watch?

Now we have so many channels and streaming services to choose from. So, what do we pick to watch? I know that it can be hard to wade through tons of shows that may not be the right fit. Well, here are some ideas for you to try!

Mad Men

Are you a fan of old-school New York City and lots of drama? Mad Men might be for you:

“Set in New York in the 1960s, Mad Men follows one of the city’s most prestigious ad agencies on Madison Avenue. The agency is doing well, but as the industry grows, the competition begins to stiffen. The agency tries to survive in a time when everything, including the ad industry, is undergoing a radical shake-up. The two protagonists are the enigmatic Don Draper (Jon Hamm), a self-made executive whose childhood seems to always get in the way of his happiness, and ultra-terse Peggy Olson (Elisabeth Moss), a former secretary who works her way up the corporate ladder. From its first episode all the way through its final season, Mad Men is a tremendous work of art.” – Digital Trends

Watch the entire series on Netflix.

Grace and Frankie

Hopefully we all have that one friend we can’t live without. For a lighthearted comedy and real-life hardships, try Grace and Frankie.

“For as long as they can recall, Grace and Frankie have been rivals. Their one-upmanship comes crashing to a halt, however, when they learn that their husbands have fallen in love with each other and want to get married. As everything around the ladies is coming apart, the only thing they can really rely on is each other. This Netflix original re-teams Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin (“9 to 5”) as Grace and Frankie, respectively, bringing their chemistry to the small screen. It’s a casting reunion on a grand scale, as Tomlin is reunited with her co-star from “The West Wing,” Martin Sheen, who plays Grace’s husband, Robert. And Fonda is back with Sam Waterston, her co-star from “The Newsroom,” who plays Frankie’s husband, Sol.” – Google

The West Wing

Do you love politics and drama? If you haven’t seen The West Wing, you will absolutely love it. It’s a great series to watch with your significant other or on your own!

“Cutthroat presidential advisers get their personal lives hopelessly tangled up with professional duties as they try to conduct the business of running a country. Fictional Democratic President Josiah “Jed” Bartlet suffers no fools, and that policy alienates many. He and his dedicated staffers struggle to balance the needs of the country with the political realities of Washington, D.C., working through two presidential terms that include countless scandals, threats and political scuffles, as well as the race to succeed Bartlet as the leader of the free world.” – Google

Watch the entire series on Netflix.

The Crown

Shelly and I both love The Crown. Are you a fan of the royal family or would you like a show that will transport you to 1940s England? If so, you will want to catch-up on this amazing series. The acting is brilliant!

“Based on an award-winning play (“The Audience”) by showrunner Peter Morgan, this lavish, Netflix-original drama chronicles the life of Queen Elizabeth II (Claire Foy) from the 1940s to modern times. The series begins with an inside look at the early reign of the queen, who ascended the throne at age 25 after the death of her father, King George VI. As the decade’s pass, personal intrigues, romances, and political rivalries are revealed that played a big role in events that shaped the later years of the 20th century.” – Google

The Good Place

In need of a light-hearted comedy? Now in its fourth and final season on NBC, The Good Place will have you rolling with laughter.

“Bureaucratic mix-ups can be a nightmare — just ask anyone who has needed to apply for a passport — but on occasion, they can work out in your favor. Eleanor Shellstrop (Kristen Bell) finds herself on the good side of a paperwork snafu when, after dying, she ends up in the Good Place, a serene afterlife neighborhood built by a cosmic architect named Michael (Ted Danson). In reality, Eleanor was an abrasive person who only looked out for herself. Now, in order to avoid being discovered and sent to the Bad Place, she must learn how to behave like a nice person. The Good Place is an upbeat comedy whose unique setting and surprising plot set it a notch above most sitcoms.” – Digital Trends

Watch seasons 1-3 on Netflix and season 4 on NBC.

Outlander

Ready for romance, history and lots more romance? This wonderful series will capture your heart and make you wish you could also time travel to 1743!

“After serving as a British Army nurse in World War II, Claire Randall is enjoying a second honeymoon in Scotland with husband Frank, an MI6 officer looking forward to a new career as an Oxford historian. Suddenly, Claire is transported to 1743 and into a mysterious world where her freedom and life are threatened. To survive, she marries Jamie Fraser, a strapping Scots warrior with a complicated past and a disarming sense of humor. A passionate relationship ensues, and Claire is caught between two vastly different men in two inharmonious lives. `Outlander’ is adapted from the best-selling books by Diana Gabaldon.” – Google

Watch the series on Starz On Demand or Online.

Downton Abbey

Downton Abbey is a popular drama that just came out with a movie to finish the series. It’s a one-of-a-kind show that will always leave you wanting more. It’s also full of rich history and wonderful performances from the actors.

“This historical drama follows the lives of the Crawley family and their servants in the family’s Edwardian country house. The series begins with the 1912 sinking of the Titanic, which leaves Downton Abbey’s future in jeopardy, as Lord Grantham’s presumptive heir — his cousin James — and his son, Patrick, died aboard the ship, leaving him without a male offspring to take over the throne upon his death. As a result, Lord Grantham must search for a new heir. As the series progresses through the decade, other historical events happen leading up to Lord Grantham declaring in 1914 that Britain is at war with Germany, marking the beginning of World War I, which becomes a major plot on the show.” – Google

Watch the entire series on PBS.
