Tell Me What to Watch (or Read) Next


Nothing is off limits.

TV shows, movies, YouTube, recipes, blog? Yep. Do it.

Share your own books if you want. Heck, share mine! I won’t say no. In fact, I may take your suggestions even more seriously lol. 

Here’s the caveat: it may take me a while before I get to it. Because, you know: life.

I know, I know . . . that sucks, but time is more limited with everyone being home and overtaking my whole existence. Most people seem to have way more time on their hands, and quite frankly, I’m jealous. They’re out there learning new skills and completing renovation projects, while I’m trying to get little things to entertain me during my 10-minute breaks every now and then. On that point, how is it going for you? How are you surviving?

Have you caught up with all the popular TV shows out there?

If you did, and you have a recommendation for me to binge on Netflix, Disney Plus, or Amazon Prime, share away.  

I just finished Westworld, Outlander, and Homeland. Those were not binged, since I had to wait an eternity between each week’s episodes, but I survived so that’s good. I found them all interesting and different. In the past couple of years, I enjoyed watching The Good Place (a lot!), the Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, Money Heist, The Mandalorian (I need a Baby Yoda for myself), Breaking Bad, The Witcher, Dracula, and Stranger Things. 

I’m currently in a love/annoyed relationship with The Flash and Supernatural but can’t stop watching because I’m committed to the storylines and the actors. I can be loyal. But sometimes not so much, for example: I totally gave up on The Walking Dead about two years ago, and I’m happier for it.

But as far as masterpieces . . .

I keep hearing about Tiger King (I can hear you laughing). Heck, I’ve seen memes about “That Bitch Carole Baskins” so many times, even I laugh . . .  and I’m not “in” on the joke. All I know is she’s probably a murderer. I don’t think I’d enjoy the travesty that that show is about, but I admit my curiosity has somewhat been sparked. 

In a more reality-oriented option, I’m randomly watching Nailed It and have no regrets whatsoever . . . which I can’t say with 100% conviction that I wouldn’t have with Tiger King.

Other shows I haven’t watched—and maybe you can weigh in on them—are: You, Dead to Me, Killing Eve, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, and . . . well, I don’t really know what else is out there. That’s why I’m asking you. I like comedy, drama, supernatural, and “thinky” shows.

Now, tell me about books.

As far as reading goes, just hit me with whatever you got. I enjoy reading Facebook feeds, some Reddit forums, and articles 😝 . . . okay, jokes aside, I do like most genres. I draw the line at textbooks, because . . . I mean, I want to escape the world’s problems and not learn how to fix them. We all have our limits.

Don’t stop there!

I can also find myself down the rabbit hole of that which is YouTube, so if you have a channel, I can give it a shot. I don’t have TikTok but I’m pretty curious about it since my co-host, Raymond, has given it high praises. He’ll kill me for saying that. That’s okay.

Anything that can help feed my creativity, I’m up for. Including recipes! If you have interesting dessert, bread, or any easy-ish recipes, I’m also all about that. Every weekend, I make a special dessert with the kids. And then I eat it . . . and regret it . . . and start planning for the following weekend. It’s the circle of life, I say.

Basically, I’m a little bored with nothing on my mind and turning to you for suggestions. So on that note, show me what you got! 😃

  1. I watched Supernatural waaay back when, but the only other show you mentioned I’ve seen is The Mandalorian…and I loved it. Also a fan of Lucifer–the only reason I still subscribe to Netflix–but wondering if we’ll EVER see new episodes no matter how many seasons Tom Ellis signs up for! Damn you, covid19!

    I also read a little of everything–very little on the YA–but as romance continues to let me down, my book recs are simple – crime, suspense, and police procedurals. Andrew Cunningham’s “Lies Mystery Series” and “The DI Sterling Series” by Lorraine Mace. Both are filled with well-written characters and strong plots–at least I think so–and while neither is tame, the Sterling series gets gritty.

    Annnnd… I have a book coming out June 1st! (Don’t faint!) It’s a novella of short suspense stories and the first thing I’ve accomplished since losing my husband last year, and I’m just happy to have FINISHED something! 😀 https://geni.us/Malice

    1. Lucifer! I now remember I had wanted to give it a shot! I was waiting for the last season to come out so I could binge through it . . . then I forgot lol. And now, I think they decided on another season, right? But yes, damn it, Covid!

      Thanks for the book recommendations, I’m writing them down so I can look into them. As far as Malice and Forethought, I just did my pre-order! It looks really interesting and I love how the blurb gets right into the definition of MALICE, that was catchy!

      And congratulations on your new release! I can’t imagine how challenging it was to finish the novella given the loss of your husband, but I’m sure he’d be really proud. It is a fantastic accomplishment and I can’t wait to read it! ❤️

      1. Many thanks, my friend. He was my biggest cheerleader, motivator… and harasser! 😀

        All tips, pointers and critiques are welcome!

        Enjoy Lucifer! I think he’s a riot and is surrounded by a great cast!

    2. Now I think I want to watch Lucifer too! You make it sound so binge-worthy.

      I have no recommendations that you haven’t already heard, but I think it’s never a bad idea to re-recommend Parks & Recreation. Also, Arrested Development is hilarious and leaves me hurting from laughter pretty much every episode. I just love it so much.

      1. Oh, Parks & Rec is one of those shows that builds and builds, and there are so many running gags that make it re-watchable.

        Oh, and congratulations on finishing your book! I guess your cheerleader was right there with you after all.
