Howdy friends that just might be bored enough to read my blog post about television shows I watched this year. Glad to have you aboard this wild ride of top ten lists. Please keep your hands and legs inside the blog at all times.
As you may or may not know, 2014 was the year that we bit the bullet and got Netflix and Amazon Prime Streaming. We also bit a bigger bullet and got rid of satellite, which was a good bullet to bite. We have been so busy watching the shows we missed the past few years, we haven't missed paying a bajillion dollars a month watching average shows on satellite. For those that might be considering the satellite or cable "ditch and dump", I'd highly recommend it.
At any rate, we watched less TV this year, but the TV we did watch, we were very picky about. We started a lot of series, some of them terrible, many of them TVrific! I've decided to record the series my wife and I found most intriguing. Now, many of these series will not be for you. In fact, I'd be willing to say that many of you would find these series too dark, too violent, too offensive. (It is a little known fact that my wife likes dark movies and TV shows. Even more than I do. Just another reason she is awesome.)
Perhaps you and your spouse are looking for a new TV series to sit down and gorge on. These are the ones I liked that I watched this year. Of course, some have been off the air for many years, but this is how hip I am: I just barely got around to watching them. So, without further ado, I give you my top ten favorite shows I streamed/watched in 2014:
But first, the "Honorable Mentions":
Raising Hope (Netflix)
The Blacklist (Netflix)
