Maisel and Mad Men

I don’t watch a lot of television. Not because there isn’t anything to watch; there is plenty to watch. The main reason is that once I sit down after a busy day to watch a little TV, I inevitably and unintentionally fall asleep on the couch by 8:30 – 9 pm every night. The next thing I know, I wake up at 11 pm to go upstairs to bed and waste an entire evening. And I hate when that happens.

The last show I watched religiously was Mad Men on AMC. Why that show? Have you seen Don Draper? Even though it came on at the ungodly hour of 10 pm on Sunday nights, I parked myself in front of the TV to take in every second of the drama. I’ve binged watched all seven seasons at least four or five times since it stopped airing. I never tire of it.

More recently, I love The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel on Amazon Prime. If you haven’t had the chance to watch it, I highly recommend it. It’s the perfect combination of family, funny, and feminism—definitely my cup of tea. Today, the first three episodes of the final season dropped. I watched the first one, and I’m already preparing myself for the depression that will surely come after the last curtain call.

What shows do you watch over and over again? What should be on my list to check out once Maisel is over? Let me know in the comments. Nothing too scary or violent, please. I need to be able to fall asleep on the couch at some point, and I could do without the nightmares.

    I have been meaning to start watching Mad Men but not yet.. I love Marvelous Mrs. Maisel and yet to watch the last season (plus a few episodes of the previous one too).. as for shows, we try to watch ones that we can all watch together whenever possible (and now that my kids are older at 20 and 17, the shows we watch have changed too)..
    If you love goofy shows, then Impractical Jokers is sure to keep you laughing (more a reality show than one with a storyline but worth it for the laughs!! and i usually not a big fan of reality shows)..
    Better Call Saul is good but can get a little violent in places..

    What shows do I watch over and over again? ER, Emergency Room!
    I also enjoyed “Without A Trace”, sadly it was discontinued after only fours seasons.

    I don’t watch a lot of TV, but for a different reason than you: Unlike you I don’t fall asleep – I keep watching. We end up with the same result, however: we sort of wasted our evening.

    I have never seen Mad Men, I may just have to binge watch that. However, I do love The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, and I too am a bit sad this is the last season. I just finished the third episode and must say, this season is quite different than the rest. I am excited to see where how they end it. Thank you for sharing.
