A Farewell to Parenthood

Hi, there will be a LOT of spoilers in this post about the final episode and season in general of Parenthood because I am trying to process my emotions and I can’t do that unless spoilers. You’ve been warned, read at your own risk.

With this being a very emotional week for television (hello did anyone watch Criminal Minds, was not expecting that one to be so emotional but this post isn’t about that), I knew Thursday night would be rough. Parenthood was ending. I’m basically a puddle of emotions because it was so happy, so sad, and so bittersweet.

Shows You Should Be Watching: Parks and Recreation

I’m not the first person to say how utterly fantastic Parks and Recreation is, and I will not be the last, but I still feel that it needs to be said. With the first two episodes of the final season premiering on Tuesday 1/13 I can’t help but feel sad that this great show is coming to an end even though I haven’t been watching it for a long time.

Cindy: A New Web Series

A week ago, I was sitting in my room procrastinating all the work I have to do by watching Netflix. An ordinary Wednesday afternoon. When I checked the blog email, I found an email from Larry Wilson, the co-writer of Beetlejuice, The Addams Family, and The Little Vampire, about a new web series he is co-producing. He had seen Kelly’s post about The New Adventures of Peter and Wendy, and contacted us asking if we would write a piece about this new series:

Shows You Should Be Watching: Penny Dreadful

Here’s a third edition of Colleen’s “Shows You Should Be Watching” series. Can you tell I’m the resident TV addict here at the Three Basic Bees?

This time I’m talking about the show Penny Dreadful. A warning: This show can get pretty gory and there’s the occasional nudity and sex scene, so if that’s something you’re against, maybe don’t watch it. if you don’t care… Don’t say I didn’t warn you.

Shows You Should Be Watching: Parenthood

In another addition of “Shows Colleen cries over a lot” I’m here to talk about NBC’s Parenthood.

Warning: This is not a spoiler free article

So a couple of years ago I walked into my loft (which is a small area of my house that my parents set aside for me and my sister to watch TV/hang out with people etc…) and my sister was watching some show on Netflix. When I asked her what she was watching and she said Parenthood. I was bored, so I decided to sit down and watch the rest of the episode with her. I think it was like the fourth episode, and I kind of liked it. So a couple weeks later when I was bored again I was scrolling through my Netflix queue and saw it in there I decided to watch the first few episodes. I liked the show, but at this point I didn’t have a laptop so it was a lot harder for me to motivate myself to marathon shows, so I had a casual relationship with the show.
