Fall TV Premieres

Fall is coming! Scarves and pumpkin flavored everything and normal temperatures are right around the corner! I joked the other day that I was a part of Game of Thrones, my house motto would be “FALL IS COMING.” It is so true. It’s my absolute favorite season! Everything smells great, I don’t sweat every time I go outside, and I get to layer on cute ensembles every day. Another plus? All of our shows come back. Chris and I don’t have cable/dish/satellite so people just assume that we don’t watch TV. Which we don’t….in the summer.

We have HuluPlus and Netflix, which saves us a ton of money and lets us watch all of the shows we love. I like to think that we don’t really watch a lot of TV, but when I was counting all of the shows we watched, I was surprised at how much time we actually spend in front of the TV. However, we don’t watch the shows when they are being aired, so we just sit down and watch them together before we go to bed or when we are having a lazy day. (As long as I think about it that way, I don’t feel so bad about it).

Anyway, these are the shows we are so excited to start watching again!

Monday, September 16th: BONES

Tuesday, September 17th: NEW GIRL, THE MINDY PROJECT

Monday, September 23rd: CASTLE

Tuesday, September 24th: MARVEL’S AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D. (This is new!)

Wednesday, September 25th: MODERN FAMILY

Thursday, September 26th: PARENTHOOD

Now, that sounds like a lot of TV, but it doesn’t seem like it when we actually watch it! And I just feel better knowing that I am not glued to the TV when these are airing and I can watch them at my convenience instead. Anyway, those are the ones we are most excited to watch! Oh, and this doesn’t reflect our Netflix shows… we are most excited for the latest season of How I Met Your Mother to come out on Netflix, because HuluPlus doesn’t have it. We also wait for the newest season of The Big Bang Theory to come out on blu-ray/DVD.

What do you watch? Tell me which premieres have you excited! 

Do you have any recommendations for us? (Not that we really need to be watching more TV)

**I tried and tried and tried to add the premiere posters for each of these shows to this post, but the formatting was a NIGHTMARE, and I just couldn’t do it. I hope you forgive me!

The Mindy Project

So, I think I might start giving my opinions on things other than books as well. I am hoping to make this blog a little window into my life, and I think I am going to start sharing more aspects of my life with you guys! Sooooooo, I am going to chat with you guys about one of my new favorite shows!


This show is very funny, and quirky, and lovely. Dr. Mindy Lahiri is of course played by Mindy Kaling (you might know her as Kelly Kapur from The Office.) Dr. Lahiri is ab OB/GYN practicing in NYC. She works with two other male doctors and a bunch of fun office staff. Throughout The Mindy Project, you get to see what it is like being a single, successful, 31-year-old Indian woman in NYC. It’s everything I am not, and so therefore quite entertaining to watch! I think it is on right after New Girl on Tuesday nights on Fox. (I’m sorry, I can’t really help you out too much with times, I watch my shows on HuluPlus.)

Here is the little blurb from IMDB:

A young Ob/Gyn doctor balances her personal and professional life, surrounded by quirky co-workers in a small office.

Mindy Kaling as Mindy Lahiri

Chris Messina as Daniel Castellano

Ed Weeks as Jeremy Reed

Ike Barinholtz as Morgan Tookers


There are obviously other characters, but those are the main ones, and also my favorites. There have also been guest appearances by B.J Novak, Ed Helms, and Ellie Kemper, who are all actors/actresses from The Office.

Anyway, Just watch it! It’s fun!
