The Night Manager (20-23 04 16) - You watch this mini series for two reasons: the scenery/cinematography and the actors. Hiddleston, Laurie, and Coleman are the stars. I think Coleman is the best actor, but Hiddleston and Laurie are excellent. Hiddles is just pretty. The story and writing have issues. It's not something to write home about, but this is a pretty, pretty series. Daredevil Season 2 (last week of May) - I think the…

House of Cards (March 25?-29, 2016) - A good season of the show. I enjoyed it. Maybe a bit more than the last. I love how the characters are fascinating, vulnerable, and vile at the same time. Claire's mother was a great addition to it. Cooked (March 29-April 3, 2016) - A Netflix documentary series based on Michael Pollan's book Cooked. I have been more into food than ever lately if you've noticed so this…

There is something mesmerizing about him. He's amazing in this and deserved all the praise. I really hope he gets more high profile roles. The soundtrack is one of the best I've heard from a TV show. Let's…

I am going to try to limit myself to one to two (if I have holidays) TV series a month from now on unless I am sick or on holiday. Episodes (August 2015) - As someone who isn't a completeionist and find it difficult just to make time for all my consumption and hobbies, I dropped this after watching two…

This lists any series or seasonal shows I have watched in marathons during the month, but also whenever I want to write about shows I am watching. Smaller mini series will tend to go in Monthly movies. Switched at Birth - Watched episodes S1x01 to S1x11 in a few days and the new episodes since. I haven't watched any ABC Family shows since the 90s I think. I was quite surprised how much I liked…
