If a man cries in front of their Netflix account, does anyone hear it?

It’s nearly the end of the year, and I haven’t finished a single book. It’s safe to say that I’m not going to complete the 2016 Book Riot Read Harder Challenge. The yearly previously, I had read roughly 25 books. Although I did not complete the challenge, it was still an accomplishment because, well, before that point, I didn’t even read 25 books total outside of an environment of mandatory reading. Yeah… and I call myself a writer and book lover. Lately, I’ve just been sitting on a tall tower of books and crying. It’s a familiar image to all of you, I know.

On top of the tall leaning tower of unread books, I also have an ever-growing queue of TV shows that I’ve been wanting to watch for years. Yes, I said it. years. You may think to yourself, “But, Kenny, all you have to do is sit on your butt and watch them.” I am, unfortunately, not someone who can just sit on a chair for an hour watching a TV show without distraction or interruption.

Not having a TV makes TV watching difficult because I am not able to watch new TV episodes as they come out. That’s OK though because I have like 500 TV shows I want to watch, and I can’t figure out how it’s possible for me to watch everything before I die.

I have decided to go through Netflix and Amazon Prime and make a list of all of the TV Shows that I either want to start, finish or watch again. Grab yourself a tub of popcorn and be prepared to shake your head at me in disappointment.

Shows I need to finish

Mr. Robot
Breaking Bad
Person of Interest
Parks and Recreation
True Blood
The Arrow
The Flash

Shows I want to Start

Halt and Catch Fire
The Vampire Diaries
The Originals
The Wire
The Newsroom

Shows I want to re-watch

Burn Notice
Veronica Mars
Gilmore Girls

If anyone has any insights as to what they would or would not recommend, let me know. If I can narrow down the list, maybe I can stop crying over the amount of TV shows I want to watch.

Looking at this, I actually expected worse. The problem is with a lot of the shows I’ve started, I don’t know where I left of. This is especially a problem with Revenge. You do not want to know how many times I’ve started from the beginning. Oh well. I’ll figure it out. At least Emily VanCamp is cute.

  1. I usually try to start only 2 shows and if I like the first two episodes, I stick with it, but if I don’t, then I leave it. I do need to finish a few ones like Reign and iZombie along with The Crown. <3 Good luck with your list!

  2. I kinda don’t blame you for having Revenge and Breaking Bad on the list of shows to continue watching. I used to watch a bit of Revenge and a lot of Breaking Bad, and they were the kind of shows you could easily put down and come back to. They were easy to get hooked on but also easy to ‘pause’. Maybe because of the dramatic themes? But yeah, I never finished watching Breaking Bad and I fully intend to, but it just occurred to me that it’s been two years since I stopped. 😛

  3. I love The Arrow and The Flash! I’ve watched two seasons of Vampire Diaries, but I can’t get hold of season three for some reason.

    Other TV shows I used to love, but I don’t really have any news about them anymore: The Walking Dead (I love Daryl!), Teen Wolf (I stopped watching it since they replaced Allison Argent and Derek isn’t a regular anymore) and Shield. I heard True Blood and Prison Break is great, I’ve been meaning to with it.
