In the past one and half month, my blog posts were focused on the three colors, Financial Freedom, Family and Fitness so as to balance the number of my blog posts. As of today, these three colors are now on par with the Fun color and so I can start blogging about Fun now. The last post on the Fun color was on January 30th, 2012 and so it is time to talk about some fun things that I like to do.
One form of fun for me has been watching my favorite TV shows. The TV shows that I have watched through Hulu Plus and Netflix in the past year are Scandal, House of Cards, Suits and Good Wife. I got interested in these shows only last year. I am onto current season and up to date with all these shows even though some of them were a few seasons old.
With the format of Hulu Plus and Netflix, binge watching is the default especially on weekends. Some weekends we went on a marathon watching as these were so interesting. One of my friend told me that he watched House of Cards second season, all 13 episodes, in one weekend. That’s how people usually are catching up to current season.
It would be difficult for me to pick any one these TV shows as my top favorite because all of these are well made and interesting. Since this blog is about learning and having zero regrets, I would like to say that I am glad I watched these shows not only for the entertainment they provided but also because of the learning from the transformation of the lead characters as the shows progressed.
In Good Wife, the lead character Alicia, an upcoming lawyer, slowly transforms herself from a timid lawyer to a very competent and successful lawyer. Watching all seasons at once showed this transformation very powerfully.
In Scandal, the transformation is opposite, where Olivia Pope, the character played by Kerrie Washington, goes on from one crisis to another and in the process loses the aura of invincibility shown in the first episodes. The scale of political crises makes the whole show interesting and shows how unbelievable the pressures and stresses are when you are in politics.
House of Cards, even though is a political drama, is very different from Scandal. It shows the rise of Frank Underwood, played by Kevin Spacey from a political pariah to the top dog. The lies, the machinations and the strategies that Kevin Spacey uses
Suits is also very interesting to see the hard work and the smarts that go with winning the corporate legal cases by the two lead characters who are lawyers.
All in all, if you are looking for some fun then check out these shows and I am sure you will like at least one of them.
Thanks for reading and have a great day!
