I think one of the most difficult things you have to get through are the hiatuses of your favorite TV shows. Ever since I started watching different shows as a weekly thing I haven’t been able to think about what could happen to my favorite characters and what could change within the actual show. It doesn’t matter if it’s for winter or summer breaks, but let’s get real here summer breaks are the worst; it’s not like you’re waiting like a month, you’re waiting from whatever day in May it goes off until either the end of September or beginning of October for the season to begin.
I know I’m not alone in how I feel because both of my parents go through their own withdrawals with their shows they watch too! Recently, I’ve been basically hoardering some of my favorites into my DVR (and my folk’s side too!) to get me through the winter break. I know, I’ve been talking a lot about shows but I also do the same with films too! Sometimes it doesn’t matter if I’ve already seen it, hated or loved it, and will probably only watch it that one time but I will have stored into my DVR for safe keeping in case that once in a blue moon comes along!
I was asked to create a list of both movies and TV shows that can be streamed on any device you use whether that’s your phone or television. If you want to know more information about maybe getting a better connection using multiple devices, you should look into Luma‘s customizable home surround wifi system. I do think it’s fair to say that I went a little random with my choices. If I was allowed more than six I would have added Hunting Hitler, The Vampire Diaries and Toy Story. I just went with what I know I’ve been obsessed with this past year, so that’s my excuse!
I still think my picks are pretty interesting! If anybody knows me well enough, you can say these practically spell “Meghan” all over them! You should already know about why I would add both X-Men: Days Of Future Past and Supergirl! I know I’ve discussed The Golden Girls recently when I figured out how much I am like Dorothy than I wanted to find out! The other three were sort of random picks though!
I choose White Oleander because it’s one of the first films that I remember watching as a young girl, even though it’s not the most ideal for someone under the age of 13 but oh well! It’s also the film that literally made me afraid of Michelle Pheiffer, not because of the role she portrayed but she just looks very intimating in general! I know I can’t be the only one who thinks this, am I? I can honestly say it’s one of the films that I can be in both a good or bad mood and still watch the whole thing in one day! The other film is The Theory Of Everything and I think it’s an amazing movie. I will literally go out of my way to get more people to watch it. If I can get my mom to watch it I would, but she’s not interested in British films as I am, plus I don’t think should handle the science and disability themes it discusses in it.
My last TV show I placed on the slot is The Tudors which I know can be streamed on demand, because that’s how I was able to watch it! I will say, I liked it so much that I would actually buy the entire box set too and I’m not going to lie, if I ever do that or was ever given that as a present I’d probably cry my heart out! Also if you love Jonathan Rhys Meyers, Natalie Dormer, and/or Henry Cavil, you’ll love this show just trust me!
What do you like to watch during the hiatuses? Do you go back and rewatch the current season’s episodes?

As of late I have been watching some new shows-The OA was spectacular. The newest season of The Fall was breath-taking. I highly recccomend Stranger Things if you haven’t yet watched that (all of these are on Netflix). I also have a terrible trashy tv addiction…so I have been watching WAY too much “Love and Hip Hop” as well as “Catfish”. I have been meaning to try “The Tudors”, thanks for reminding me!! Ive also been meaning to watch “The Theory of Everything”

Wow! You watch a lot of different shows! I know this is going to sound weird and maybe a little stereotyped and I apologize if it is, but are you watching The Crown? If I had Netflix, I would watch it! I would also like to finally finish Sons of Anarchy too!
