In Money

Favourite television series and shows to date

I watch quite a lot of TV.

It is nice to have your brain switch off and relax. I don’t actually own a television or have cable per se, but I use online TV services and for the most part (especially Netflix), I have found a ton of great series and episodes available.

My tastes veer towards detective, fantasy, reality TV (yes really), food documentaries and the like and I’ve tried to group them as such.

I’m really open to suggestions as well. I have watched some that readers have recommended and loved it, but others, they just weren’t my speed.

As of late, you’d be surprised how much TV I watch, either on my iPod (saved videos), off Amazon Video, or just in general as background noise:

LIFE

  • Barely Famous – Half reality, half fake and funny…
  • Modern Family – Entire cast is hilarious
  • This is Us – Great drama about life
  • Seinfeld – Today, tomorrow, and forever
  • Big Bang Theory – It was great for me until 7 seasons then it jumped the shark..

DETECTIVE/LEGAL DRAMA

  • Castle – Nathan Fillion MADE this show for me. Fellow Canadian and awesome actor.
  • Sherlock (BBC) – Benedict Cumberbatch for me is a fantastic actor.
  • Elementary – I love Lucy Liu….
  • The Good Wife – Quite gripping to the end
  • The Good Fight – The sequel to The Good Wife
  • The Mentalist

FOOD

  • Top Chef – STILL LOVE IT
  • Chef’s Table – Great series on Netflix

FANTASY

  • Battlestar Galactica – Just really like the whole plot
  • Game of Thrones – Love me a good dragon
  • Dollhouse – Spies and secret abilities? OMG YES.

REALITY TV

  • Comedians in Cars getting Coffee – Some episodes are funnier than others
  • Real Housewives of New York City – do not ask me how I got started on this, but I blame it on hotel TV…
  • Queer Eye for the Straight Guy – Fantastic, and I love Antoni the best.

Millionaire at 36 after getting out of $60K of student debt in 18 months, a little over a decade earlier, using TheBudgetingTool.com. Since then, I have paid my $600K home in cash (my half was $300K), my $180K casr in cash, worked 50% of my career (taking 1-2 year breaks), and quadrupled my income within 2 years of graduating, going from $65K to $260K with an average lifetime savings rate of 50%. I could retire today if I wanted, but love my work-life balance as a freelancing consultant in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math). I am all about balance - between time and money, and also enjoying my money. I also post daily on Instagram @saverspender.

    I’m into British and Canadian Shows. I hope I read the book Alias Grace before watching it. Either way I love the mystery and innocence that keeps on lingering.

    I’m binge watching Humans about robot. Not your ordinary robot though. Their movements are choreographed that they seem flawless. The downside: each season only has 8 episodes.

      Definitely with you on British shows, some of the best dramas on tv. Line of duty and Peaky Blinders are two of my favourites. From the US I also The Handmaids Tale (based on Margaret Atwood’s book and filmed partially in Canada, always excited when I recognize parts of my Toronto neighborhood on tv) and Power (great plot twists).

      I’ve been watching it, too! So intense, but so good. I figured since it was based on books it ought to be alright.
