1. The Office
True confession: I have watched The Office at least a dozen times. Probably more. Every time through the series, I am struck by how the writers make me root for even the least likable characters on the show. Michael can be at his most childish at one moment and then do something genuinely caring and kind the next. Sometimes I want to smack him, but I always want him to succeed. #thatswhatshesaid
2. Stranger Things
The X-Files meets The Goonies: what’s not to like? But seriously, the writing on this show is tight. The characters are interesting. And there are demogorgons.
This is my most recent binge. Longmire is a modern western mystery series. The cast features some great actors: Lou Diamond Philips, Katee Sackhoff, A Martinez, and Peter Weller. The Indian characters are my favorite, especially Jacob Nighthorse. #charactercrush
This is totally my kind of humor, and the story line focuses on overcoming hardships, which is my favorite theme of all time.
5. Fuller House
I grew up watching D. J. Tanner on Full House, so I had to watch D. J. Fuller on Fuller House. All the great characters come back at one time or another. Plus, seeing Candace Cameron Buré doing one-leg push-ups made me decide to work on my own upper body strength. Yes, it’s cheesy. But sometimes, you need to watch the cheese.
