10. Archer


Adventure, mature content

At the center of it all is suave master spy Sterling Archer, whose less-than-masculine code name is “Duchess.” Archer works with his domineering mother Malory, who also is his boss. He also has to deal with his ex-girlfriend, Agent Lana Kane and her new boyfriend, comptroller Cyril Figgis, as well as Malory’s lovesick secretary, Cheryl.

Honorable mention I needed to add:

Each sister possesses unique magical powers that grow and evolve, while they attempt to maintain normal lives in modern-day San Francisco.

  1. MERLIN!!! The ONLY complaint I have is how it ended…like come on!!! Stranger Things is always an epic choice as well. I have a love/hate relationship with “The 100” – I have to be in the mood for it. I started “New Girl” last year but left off at season 3. I think I want to restart the show, especially now that all the seasons are out.

  2. I grew up with Buffy and adored it. I still watch some of the repeats now. My youngest son is called Xander (though not after the show, it was debate as hubby wanted Alexander and me not wanting his name to be shorted to Alex, so we settled on Xander). I also love Brooklyn 99. I watched the first series of Stranger Things but never gotten around to watching the second. Not seen the others though.

  3. I haven’t really watched TV in over a year (I know that sounds crazy!!) But I find reading more interesting 🙂

    I was a huge Grey’s Anatomy fan back in the day and would even watch the commercials as I could not miss one second of the program, but Shonda failed me when she killed off McDreamy. TV has never been the same for me 😉

  4. My favorites are Game of thrones, stranger things, Friends, and Sherlock! I’ve attempted to watch Brooklyn nine-nine, gossip girl, new girl, Buffy the vampire slayer, the 100, and the crown but didn’t continue watching them!! I’m bad at committing myself to anything!

  5. I had not heard of some of those shows. Of course we cut the cord and now watch on Netflix and Amazon and whatever digital stations we can pick up. My favorite show is Big Bang Theory and sadly this is the last season.

  6. I miss Merlin, I used to watch Charmed and Buffy and still sometimes catch a re-run. I have watched a few episodes of Stranger Things and enjoyed it. Brooklyn Nine Nine makes me laugh every time I catch an episode.
