The Mindy ProjectI was so excited to start watching this show...and so confused at the first few episodes of Season 1 . Of course, the show found it's sweet spot and I've been enjoying it since. I feel like this show is pretty popular and was suprised that it wasn't renewed after season 3. Praise to hulu for keeping Mindy and Danny in our living room!
The Last Man on EarthI found Season 1 to be so frustrating...I really hoped the show would be canceled, and I felt that way up until the last five minutes of the finale when finally something of interest was sparked. I've enjoyed season two a lot more, but seriously, what's with Phil's brother? I feel like they teased us with that angle, then just dropped it.
Brooklyn Nine-NineSean wanted to start watching this together and I had no interest whatsoever (I had no clue what the show was even about). I was kinda "meh" for the first episode or two, then quickly came to love it. As late comers, we were able to binge watch Seasons 1 and 2 on hulu...but now we're in real-time awaiting each episode like everyone else.
Sean discovered History Channel on the Roku and started watching Swamp People. I was rolling my eyes and asking all sorts of questions before sitting down to figure out what the heck was going on....and now we've watched Seasons 1 ,2, and 6 (thanks History Channel for omitting seasons. Not cool). Honestly, the show is super redundant, but still somehow addictive. Like most reality shows, it's the people who are of the most interest. It was cool to see the personal growth of some cast since we watched season 6 first and then went back.
Again, History Channel dangled a carrot with this one. We watched seasons 1 1 and 2 on the Roku (it took me several episodes to warm up to this show), then season 3 was omitted. Oh, but this time, I bought the DVD on amazon. We're working our way through it now, then it's back to the Roku for season 4. It's really interesting getting to know the cast and observing their different lifestyles.
