Tuesday Treats: TV Show Addictions

Tuesday Treats, TVAmy WileyComment

I love TV.  I loved working in TV, I love watching TV, and I love talking about TV shows.  Today I’m sharing some recent favorites and the best part is these are all shows my husband and I enjoy together.  Those are often hard to find!  

Making It

I was excited about this one and it is exceeding all expectations. It’s full of crafty people showing off their creativity and you get the bonus of Amy Poehler and Nick Offerman cracking jokes the whole time. It’s a DELIGHT.   You’ll find it on NBC Tuesday nights.


World of Dance

It doesn’t get much better than a hip hop crew of kids NAILING IT.  The adults are killing it on this show too. It’s another one where some super creative and athletic individuals get to show off their talents. We love a positive-minded competition show. This one has so much to enjoy. Wednesdays on NBC.


Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee

We’ve loved this show since the Crackle days and now it’s conveniently on Netflix.  It’s as if it was made for me and my husband. It has cool cars, lots of coffee and fascinating comedians. Plus, the legendary Jerry Seinfeld.  The episodes are quick and fun. 


What shows are keeping you up past your bedtime? 

When Calls the Heart

Do you watch When Calls the Heart?  If you don't know about his darling show on the Hallmark Channel, you are in for a treat!  This is a family-friendly series I highly recommend.

This charming series takes place in a turn-of-the century coal mining town.  Residents face hardships, celebrate life's special moments, and often weave their faith into the story.

A friend told me about this show last year and over the summer my kids and I binge-watched the first four seasons.  (The first three are on Netflix, we bought the fourth on Amazon Video.)  We would spend the day outdoors, swim at the pool, then settle in for rest in the afternoon by watching and episode (or two) together.  We eagerly awaited the show's return with a fabulous episode airing on Christmas day and airing weekly starting in February.

It's exciting without being too scary and romantic in a completely appropriate way.  We like to shout "woo woo!" when Jack and Elizabeth kiss.  It's so fun to get wrapped up in a quality series that I can enjoy with my kids.  My husband occasionally watches with us too.  If you're looking for something to enjoy as a family, give When Calls the Heart a try!
