While you spent last year shuffling the kids to hockey games, helping solve their quadratic equations and giving the little ones their baths, you probably missed episodes â€“ if not full seasons â€“ of some great shows. Did Olivia kick Fitz to the curb on Scandal? Whoâ€™s rocking the break room onÂ Greyâ€™s Anatomy? Just how long is Rickâ€™s beard now on The Walking Dead? With full-blown fall premiere season upon us, nowâ€™s the time to grab your boo and glass of wine (or just grab the wine!) and dust off your shelfies.
Whatâ€™s a shelfie you ask? We all have them â€“ theyâ€™re the shows youâ€™ve been wanting to watch but theyâ€™ve been sitting on the virtual shelf becauseâ€¦well, because youâ€™re a parent and who has the time?
Which shows are on your Netflix shelfie list? Share the top-three shows you have been dying to start or catch-up on and tag it with #StreamTeam. Here are mine:
In the tradition of High Fidelity, Scrotal Recall, Â follows a BritishÂ lad revisiting his past loves. But heÂ isnâ€™t just on a quest to figure out where he went wrong. Heâ€™s tracking down his former lovers so he can tell them that he recently tested positive for chlamydia.
A Different World is an American television sitcom which aired for six seasons on NBC (from September 24, 1987 â€“ July 9, 1993). It was a spin-off series from The Cosby Show aboutÂ and the life of students at Hillman College, a fictionalblack collegeÂ in Virginia, inspired by Hampton University. Jasmine Guy was my high school principal’s daughter so I was really into the show.
Maggie Gyllenhaal just won a Golden Globe for her work in the political spy thriller The Honorable Woman. The eight-part miniseries follows a British-Israeli businesswoman as she tries to work toward peace in the Middle East.
Mixed bag? Oh, if only if you could see all my shelfies! I think I have 100 of them.
