I recently started watching two shows: Broad City and Californication.
A friend of mine recommended Broad City, but I never followed up on it – ’til now that is, when I found out Comedy Central allows you to stream full episodes. I’m all about that. I don’t like starting shows in the middle. I like starting at the very beginning. That’s just how I am, you know? Especially since I don’t have a lot going on in the cha-ching ($$) department, it’s nice to politely mooch off my parents’ cable and be able to stream shows (legally) online fo’ free! Plus, Broad City just finished up their 1st season, so I don’t have that much catching up to do.
Californication is a show I’ve heard a lot about, but never got a chance to watch. Mostly because when it first came out I was way too young to be watching it. (My parents would have never approved…I’m actually not sure if they’d approve now. The show is very much on the sexual side. Let’s just say it’s not family-friendly. Ha!) But 2 episodes in, the characters seem to have the potential to be interesting and the writing, the potential to be good. I’m just kind of not into the fact that women seem to be literally taking their clothes off at every turn to get with main character, Hank. But we shall see how things progress. I’m giving it a shot.
I like watching TV for the writing. I think fiction is one of mankind’s great inventions; Storytelling is so powerful. Laughs are great too. And suspense keeps you on your toes. It’s like 45 minute vacation.
Who can say no to that?
