Summer TV

We don’t watch a lot of TV. We don’t have cable or satellite. What we do what, we watch online. We have Netflix and then we watch the free shows on Hulu and whatever is available on the network’s channels. Since it’s almost summer I thought I’d share a few shows I’m enjoying.

If you have Neflix, be sure to watch The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt. It was originally written for NBC by Tina Fey (from SNL and 30 Rock) but they ended up passing on it. The first season is already on Netflix and you can binge watch in about two days if you want. It’s a funny show that keeps you hooked, especially the “viral video” that became the theme song.

A friend of mine told me about the Lifetime movie Lizzie Borden Took an Axe with Christina Ricci. I wasn’t able to watch it a year ago but it’s now on Netflix. I’ve always been fascinated with the Lizzie Borden case. If you aren’t familiar with the story, Lizzie Borden was accused of killing her father and step-mother in Massachusetts in 1892. She was acquitted and went on to live her life, passing away in 1927. The story has been told in several TV movies over the years and I’ve watched every one. Most people believe Lizzie did commit the crimes, but no one can be absolutely sure. I watched the movie on Netflix and then discovered that Lifetime has turned it into a weekly series. They’re taking some liberties with Lizzie’s story, but I’m enjoying how it’s playing out.

I’m also watching Outlander from Starz. This series is based on the romance novels by Diana Gabaldon. She’s on book eight now, I believe, and it’s one of my favorite stories. There’s romance, history, and time travel. It’s filmed in Scotland and the scenery is breathtaking.

I also found out a couple of weeks ago that The Walking Dead is filming in my hometown of Manchester, Georgia. They’re filming there right now. I’ve been able to see some photos that friends and family have put up on Facebook, so I’m excited about that. The show has revitalized several of the small towns around Meriwether County, Georgia, and I’m happy they decided to film in Manchester. I know the town is making everyone welcome and I hope the AMC crew comes back. I’m looking forward to the new season starting in October.

What shows are you watching or catching up on this summer? Let me know in the comments or get in touch on Facebook or Twitter.
