My girls are getting older and while there are many things I will miss about them being little, there are many things I am excited for as well. My oldest has started watching what we call “real people shows” and I love cuddling up with her to watch them. The Disney Channel has become something special between the two of us, and I am really excited for the new show, Sydney to the Max. We watched the trailer together and she can’t wait either!
Very rarely a sequel, or second season of a television show, is better than the first. Well, season 2 of Future Man just dropped on Hulu this past weekend and it came damn close. The first season blew me away. It made me fall even more in love with Josh Hutchinson as an actor. Eliza Coupe and Derek Wilson quickly because two of my favorite actors as well. And now, their growth and change in season two – amazing. Sure there were some obvious twists, but it didn’t take away from how great this season is.
A new show, Gigantosaurus is coming to the Disney Junior block on the Disney Channel this Friday (January 18th). I was able to watch a screener and I promise you that kids (and parents) are going to love this show! It is a lot of fun, and my daughters and I instantly fell in love with the group of dinosaur friends that star in the show – Mazu, Tiny, Bill, and Rocky. My youngest daughter really loves the Gigantosaurus too, who isn’t as mean as you might expect. In order to celebrate this new show, I am sharing with you this craft that is super easy to make, and kids are sure to have unlimited fun with!
I finally got around to watching the first two episodes of The Masked Singer – and I am hooked! My husband and I were glued to the TV, especially during the clue videos. We immediately started with our guesses on who each contestant was. Some of the ones that I came up with, the judges have guessed as well. We didn’t get the Hippo right, but we did know he would be a football player. And the Pinapple was just SO obvious to us! But who are the other animals? Here are my guesses!
When Colton was first announced as this year’s The Bachelor, I was less than thrilled. After watching him, not only on Becca’s season, but on Bachelor in Paradise, I just felt like he wasn’t ready. It has nothing to do with his age, I was married at age 25. But everything to do with how he treated Tia. Perhaps he really did fall in love with Becca, but he was confused about Tia because of it. I just hope he has matured since then. I have seen the first episode of The Bachelor already, and I am cautiously optimistic.
From the moment I heard that Deadly Class was going to become a show on SyFy, I was thrilled. I knew it was based off a comic book, which I had not read, but had only heard good things about from my fellow comic book reading friends. Then I saw that the Russo Brothers were executive producers and I knew it was going be out of this world. Well, I watched the premiere episode last night and I was hooked instantly!
There is nothing my kids and I love more than binging a series on Netflix. Pretty much gone are the days of having to wait for your favorite show to return each week. My girls will never understand that struggle! One show we are all really excited about as a family is 3Below: Tales of Arcadia. We enjoyed Trollhunters and found out that this is a spin-off so you know we have been counting the days!
Single Parents is easily one of the funniest new shows on television. From the first episode, I was totally hooked! The fact that they have an amazing ensemble of main cast members certainly helps. While in LA recently, I was so excited to have the opportunity to check out the Single Parents set, and get a tour from the executive producer Jason Winer and actor Jake Choi (who plays Miggy). It was so cool to be on the set of a show I watch religiously!
The Rookie is hands down one of my favorite new ABC TV shows, so when I found out that during the #RalphBreaksTheInternetEvent I would be checking out the set, I was thrilled! This may come as a surprise to you but as a total geek, I am a huge Nathan Fillion (who plays John Nolan in The Rookie) fan. Firefly anyone? Plus Castle was just…amazing! We were warned that we might not see him on set, but that we would be getting a set tour from Mercedes Mason (who plays Zoe Andersen), who I also adore. I loved her in Fear The Walking Dead but I had no idea how much fun she was. I discovered almost immediately she is snarky and loves pranks – my kind of girl!
My daughters love the movie Trolls, so when the Netflix show started, they binged it over and over. We have had many family nights where we watch several episodes. I have to admit, the series is a great follow up to the movie. My husband and I even enjoy watching it with the girls. There is humor and lessons to be learned as well. Season 4 is coming to Netflix on November 2nd, and we are so excited to celebrate – Trolls style!
