this is kind of a random question, but i’m on maternity leave for 12 weeks and my husband is off work for 4 weeks. we’re about a week and a half in, and while we love spending time with our new son, we’re getting a little bored with our tv choices. we have subscriptions to netflix and hulu+. does anyone have any good suggestions of shows we can watch? we’re hoping to find something we can watch an entire season of. thanks!

How I Met Your Mother
and then more How I Met Your Mother. I seriously…. not kidding at all… watch that show all the time. You can ask my husband. It’s pretty much all I watch and I never get sick of it. I have every single episode either on dvd or itunes.

Doctor Who, the X-Files, the Walking Dead, Gossip Girl, ooh I just looked and Freaks and Geeks is on Netflix! There’s only one season but it’s great. Bones. There are a whole bunch on Netflix.

I second How I meet your mother and Dr. Who, and if you get into Dr. Who, Torchwood is a good spinoff.

Homeland! Great show.
Also: The Walking Dead (is pretty gory though, so be warned), American Horror Story (I liked season 1 better than this current season), Boardwalk Empire

I second a lot of the aforementioned selections. I am a big sci-fi fan so I have to recommend Battlestar Galactica and if you haven’t watched it yet, Lost. Lost was the best show we’ve seen. You don’t have to be a sci-fi fan to like it. The Office is always a good call. I hear Revenge is good. I’m going to watch that when I’m on maternity leave. Dexter is fantastic. I think they might have taken that off Netflix though. If you can do the Big Bang Theory too. I like Netflix, but sometimes they don’t have the shows I’d like to watch. Have fun with your new baby!

DVR & Netflix are the best inventions.
My list of shows I’ve gone gaga over:
- Walking Dead
- Downton Abbey
- Dallas Cowboy Cheerleaders(I love dance!)
- Breaking Bad
- The Tudors
- Top Chef
- Arrested Development(THE FUNNIEST EVER!!)
- Lost(if you have never watched them and there’s lots of seasons, plays like a movie)
- Survivor(I broke up with an ex and went through 10 seasons in pjs eating ice cream)
And when hubby is gone watch Big Rich Texas, Project Runway, Kardashians, David Tutera, Real Housewives of anything. haha
