June Favorites (2014)

June brought to an end a lot of my favorite shows, like Game of Thrones and Orphan Black and in between the month there was a lull with nothing new and fun to watch. I try to catch up on shows all the time, so when there is nothing to watch it feels like I have to resort to things of yesteryear like reading, talking to people and going outside. OMG the craziness of that, can you guys imagine?! All kidding aside, there was a few things I was loving last month, let’s check it out.


1. Orange is the New Black, Season 2
If you haven’t binged watched it already, then you are probably not human. The minute this was released on Netflix, I polished it off in a few days. Much to my husband’s demise, he absolutely hated the show and said it was a show about prison made for chicks. To which I told him to just shut up and watch the show. Yes, he has a point, a lot of what happens on the show is intended I believe for women. I mean at one point, I think one of the inmates was reading The Fault in Our Stars. Sometimes being in prison there almost seems fun. LOL.

This season dove into the other inmates’ lives much more than Season 1. Piper’s story and her struggles almost played second fiddle to Red, Taystee and the new kid on the block Vee. I really enjoyed seeing Miss Rosa’s story come to life and how she ended up in jail and what a bad ass she used to be when she robbed banks. I have to say I missed seeing Alex Vause and her relationship with Piper, Alex is super sexy and manipulative and I wish they had given her more scenes. Overall, it was a pretty good season, not the best show out there, but definitely fun to watch.

Check out my review of Season 1

2. Ladies of London
If you know me, then you know I am a reality housewives addict. Bravo aired the new Ladies of London, which is essentially, the Real Housewives in London. Come on Bravo, don’t hide the fact that this is a housewives show. This time the cast is half Americans living in England and half real Brits and this is where the division and arguments ensue. I know it is mindless and stupid, but I love seeing the fashions and the cool little places in London that they go to when they hang out. In one episode, they go to a castle and you can just imagine all the improper things they did and said there. My fave housewife is definitely Caroline Stanbury, she is totes crazy and bitchy! Does anyone who lives in the UK, know who these women are? As in are they pseudo-celebrities over there?

3. The Goldbergs
I have mentioned it before I love, love The Goldbergs on ABC. I definitely am loving this show more than Modern Family, which in my opinion has gone downhill over this past year. At this point, every joke is the same on there and the family is a caricature of itself. I have been watching all the reruns of The Goldbergs when there is nothing to watch and I never regret re-watching an episode. The hijinks the family gets into is super funny and just watching the show brings back memories of the 80’s. From the furniture, to the toys they play with, think Rubik’s cube and Simon, and all the 80’s movies that are mentioned like Ghostbusters, Poltergeist and Star Wars, if you grew up in this era then it is bound to make you nostalgic.

That’s all for now folks, July brings with it lots of new shows. Here’s some OITNB pics that I thought were funny.

  1. I despise those housewives type shows! But just so you know Caprice in it used to be a D-list celeb in the UK. She was a sexy model type that never seemed to age.

    I’m still planning on watching OITNB and i’m supposed to be a man so i’ll let you know what i think 🙂

    1. Oh yes I think every man out there hates those shows. I watch them for fun do not judge! LOL oh ok, I wasn’t sure if anyone knew who these ladies even were because they sure make themselves seem as if they are famous. Caprice is an ass.

      Well you are part of the sensitive club so it makes sense. My husband complains because he wants to see more killings and lesbians doing crazy stuff. lol

  2. Tell your husband OITNB has Donna from the 70s show as the hot lesbian inamte. Bet that would work LOL

    I agree with The Goldbergs, the show is so good that I must have re-watched few episodes myself after the first season ends. I also agree on Modern Family, it was funny two years ago now it’s just meh.

    Good post Melissa 🙂

    1. Thanks Mesh! Yes see the prob is he didn’t see Season 1, I watched that one on my own and I got him super psyched to watch Season 2 and our Alex is barely in it! Instead he saw the fat butch lady lol.

      Yes Goldbergs is hands down my fave sitcom at the moment. It is almost reminiscent of sitcoms from the 80s and 90s like Growing Pains and Who’s the Boss.

      1. LOL the butch lady!! This reminds me of the scene with her and the peanut butter. Eek!

        Mine too and hope more people will watch it cause as you said it’s a good show and who doesn’t want to feel nostalgic of the last decades? #90s

  3. I love Orange is the New Black and surprisingly Mr O does too. I thought Miss Rosa’s story was great as was Poussay’s. I’m looking forward to whatever comes next. I haven’t heard of The Goldbergs. I don’t think it’s made it here yet.

    1. Agreed Poussay’s was really cool. I would love to have seen more of Crazy Eye’s story as well. Mr.O does that’s good! Regardless he watched it and was forced to binge watch. Goldbergs is pretty new here, so I am sure will take a little longer for you guys to get it, but when you do I think you will like it. It’s very Throwback Thursday-ish. 🙂

      1. I agree I think Crazy Eye’s story definitely has more to it. I do love a Throwback Thursday type show. That 70s Show is one of my ultimate favourites.

    1. Hey girl hey it’s crazy eyes! Better watch out Biebs. lol Yes get on it, I think you will love Orphan Black, I just told Cara I guarantee she will love OITNB and I guarantee you will like Orphan. It will definitely suck you in once you start watching it.

  4. I haven’t watched any of these shows! I haven’t even heard of Ladies of London. I know I need to watch OITNB, and I figure I will eventually, but I’m surprised to hear such good things about The Goldbergs. I had thought it wouldn’t be that great. I’m glad to hear otherwise! Nice write-up, lady! 🙂

  5. Real Housewives in London???! Oh my, what’s the world coming to, ahah. I could see that being a guilty pleasure though! 😛 If only they’d just make a show about gorgeous British hunks just going about their daily lives, taking the tubes, etc. Heck I’d watch it even if it’s got the stupidest premise ever, mwahahaha!

    1. Yes exactly the ridiculousness of Bravo continues and I keep watching! Oh yes please Bravo needs to make that show I mean what is stopping them they have shows on there now of people sitting on their couches watching shows. How stupid is that!
      Real British Hunks of London! I would watch it. 🙂

      1. Real British Hunks of London! We both should pitch it to Bravo, girl! I mean who knows, they might send us there for *research* tee hee! 😀

  6. I’m addicted to OITNB … I binged watched the first season last week and I’m half way through the second. I only starting watching Goldbergs since it was on after AOS but it’s very funny and I’m glad it’s getting a second season … Barry is hilarious!
