The illuminati created fall
fin ales which brings them one step closer to New World Order. While we were sleeping, some high-powered asshole decided that we needed a “break” from our favorite TV shows during the holiday season. I don’t remember the exact moment it happened but want to know who asked them to make this decision for us? What else are we supposed to do during those scheduled times? Spend time with family and friends?
With “on demand,” Netflix and Hulu, we will survive. Because I’m such a helpful noodle, I have compiled a list of my favorites as well as new, lesser known shows. I know some of you need help expanding your horizons, you’re welcome.
Creator Issa Rae (The Misadventures of Awkward Black Girl) stars as Issa Dee, who struggles to navigate the tricky professional and personal terrain of Los Angeles along with her best friend Molly (Yvonne Orji).
This show is hilarious, relatable and has an awesome soundtrack as noted in How Insecure Made Me Obsessed with Nick Hakim.
Every teenager thinks their parents are evil. What if you found out they actually were? Marvel’s Runaways is the story of six diverse teenagers who can barely stand each other but who must unite against a common foe – their parents.
No nerds, I have not read the comic books, do not care about possible inaccuracies, really like this show and think it’s the best thing that has come from Marvel (in my opinion). Also, it’s probably the only show on this list that you can watch as a family.
Schitt’s Creek (Netflix)
Suddenly broke, the formerly filthy-rich Rose family is reduced to living in a ramshackle motel in a town they once bought as a joke: Schitt’s Creek
This show is hilarious, I love most of the characters and have been told I act very similar to the mother.
Search Party (TBS)
Search Party is a dark comedy about five self-absorbed 20-somethings who become entangled in an ominous mystery when a former college acquaintance suddenly disappears.
Yep, this show is a prime example of why one ought to always mind their business…
She’s Gotta Have It (Netflix)
Nola Darling struggles to stay true to herself and her dreams while juggling three lovers in this Spike Lee series based on his breakout film
No, I haven’t seen the original. Quite honestly, I have not seen most of Spike Lee’s movies; however, School Daze is one of my favorites. Anyway, I’m assuming this version is a modern spin on the classic; particularly, since the main character uses labels that were not common when the movie was first released.
Shut Eye (Hulu)
SHUT EYE takes a darkly comedic look at the world of Los Angeles storefront psychics and the organized crime syndicate that runs them. Former magician Charlie Haverford (Jeffrey Donovan) oversees a number of fortune telling parlors on behalf of his violent and domineering Romani kingpin boss, until a blow to the head jars him into a new mindset, making him question everything he has ever believed.
Season 2 premieres on December 6th which means you should probably stop reading this blog post, watch Season 1 then return to read the remainder of this post…
Stranger Things (Netflix)
When a young boy vanishes, a small town uncovers a mystery involving secret experiments, terrifying supernatural forces and one strange little girl.
Fun fact: I went to a binge-watching party for Season 2 and snored through the first episode. I mean, I don’t think I was up for 15 minutes. In my defense, it was my last trimester and I was hella tired. After the second episode, I went home and slept for like 6 hours.
The Mayor (ABC)
In the new ABC TV show, young rapper Courtney Rose (Brandon Micheal Hall) runs for mayor of his hometown to generate buzz for his music career. Unfortunately for Courtney, his master plan goes wildly awry, ending in the most terrifying of outcomes: An election victory
Have you ever heard of anyone running for office for attention then actually winning? No? Me neither…
The Mist (Netflix)
Trapped by a mysterious fog, residents of a Maine village discover that it hides nightmarish creatures. A new series based on Stephen King’s novella
Don’t get too attached to this show, there’s only 1 season. I even signed a petition for another season but was the 65th signature so yeah… don’t hold your breath.
Consider this your Christmas present. Now, what you can do for me (because it’s always about me because it’s my blog), read and share my previous post: The Final Trimester & Baby Gumbeaux’s Arrival and follow Pink Gumbeaux and Baby Gumbeaux on social media. Ok, I think that’s it. Be gone!
