10 fun facts about Gilmore Girls

I

‘ve never really considered myself a huge Gilmore Girls fan, but when Netflix announced a reboot of the show, I started watching the whole series all over again and discovered I had actually seen about 90% of the episodes before.

While I was often annoyed, mostly by Rory’s actions, I got so addicted! Plus the show is such a big deal for women on TV, something I didn’t fully grasp watching it growing up, but I certainly do now. And now that I’ve seen all seven seasons, I’m having some withdrawal symptoms. No better way to fight them than write a nerdy post, right?

10 fun facts about Jane The Virgin

So, I have to be honest about it. I think the title of this show was holding me back for the longest time to start watching it. And when I heard what the show was about, a 23 year old virgin being accidentally inseminated during a visit to her doctor, I thought “no way!”.  But when my friend Nathalie told me one weekend that she was binge watching the show my interest was sparked. And so, when I saw Jane The Virgin appear on Netflix, I gave the woman a chance and oh was I happy that I did! The funny dialogues and the telenovela drama has been exactly what I’ve been missing ever since Ugly Betty went off the air. (Which reminds me, I really like Eva Longoria’s new show Telenovela as well, do check it out!) Since I started watching, I’ve converted many a friend to team Jane myself, and because Jane The Virgin seemed like a show that has a lot of fun facts, I couldn’t wait to start digging! So here they are:

10 fun facts about Suits

Suits. Swanky characters, smart lines, sharp dressing, pop culture references, the right amount of tension. I was hooked from day one and couldn’t get enough. For those of you who need a little background info: The show is set at Pearson Hardman, a fictional law firm in New York. Mike, a young and smart underachiever, was kicked out of college for selling the answers to a test and now makes a living as a bicycle messenger. His friend Trevor convinces him to take part in a drug deal. When this all blows up in his face, Mike stumbles into a job interview with Harvey, a lawyer at Pearson Hardman. As a new senior partner, Harvey has to hire a Harvard-educated lawyer as his associate. During the interview, Mike proves to Harvey he is the best candidate and is subsequently hired, despite the fact that he does not have a college degree, let alone one from Harvard.

It still feels like a brand new show to me, but in the US, season four ended this summer. Luckily for the fans, Suits has been renewed for a fifth season! Until then, here are some facts about the show…

10 Fun Facts about Mistresses

By 2 0

I can only really enjoy television drama when there’s a little humorous sauce poured over it. That’s why I like Orange is the New Black and Hart of Dixie. It’s also the reason why I used to be a big fan of Desperate Housewives. I must admit I was more than a little sad to see that show end, and for the longest time I felt there wasn’t a proper replacement for it.

Enter fellow ABC show Mistresses, albeit less suburban and more glamorous, but it’s the closest any show has come to fill the hole Desperate Housewives has left in my heart (dramatic, moi?). It’s witty and current, and dives into the lives of four women to look at their relationships from all different perspectives. It also vaguely reminds me of Lipstick jungle and Cashmere Mafia, two shows that got cancelled before they even properly started, but I have high hopes for this one. Is it the best show in the history of television? No. Is it highly addictive and entertaining? You bet!

In the US, Mistresses just finished their second season, but in Belgium Vijf just started showing the first season on tuesdays at 22:25. Missed it? Watch it here.

10 fun facts about Orange is the new Black

In just two seasons Orange is the New Black has become a true classic. The show has done a great job portraying life in women’s prison as written down by Piper Kerman in her bestselling 2010 memoir of the same name describing a year as an inmate. The in-depth portrayals of the prisoners in their current micro world are backed up by their stories,  and alternated with scenes from the outside world where life goes on as usual make this show a mix with a brilliant comi-tragic feel. Did I mention the ton of witty references? Oh the witty references!

I love that the stories are expertly sketched to make a detailed world. The show’s creators obsess over the seemingly irrelevant little details. They take the time to outline everything. And it works. These are some fun facts on the show which made me love it even more.

10 fun facts about Friends

By 10 0

I’ve been pretty excited to write a “10 fun facts” about the sitcom Friends. You see, this was the show that sparked my addiction to television. I must have seen each episode over 10 times and I still love it. I remember the first time I watched an episode. I must have been around ten years old and it was “The one with the Chick and a Duck”. I was instantly hooked. So hooked that I painted my room lilac and my dad felt the need to tell me that what I saw on the small screen “wasn’t real life”.

It’s been ten years (today!) since the show ended, but to me it’s still highly relevant. So without further ado, here’s 10 fun facts about the ultimate sitcom.

Because of my recent Mindy Kaling addiction, I finally picked up watching the Office US. I got hooked pretty quickly and 7 seasons later, that dysfunctional little office almost seems like an on screen family to me. Great stuff.

10 Fun Facts About Modern Family

10 fun facts about modern family

I recently got an e-mail about Modern Family. I have to say, these are my favorite kind of e-mails: “We’ve noticed on twitter that you’re a fan.”. If I could write a small review about the fourth season of the award winning comedy show? Don’t mind if I do. You see, the fourth season of Modern Family has just been released on DVD here in Belgium. Perfect for cosy nights in, general laughs or gifting under the Christmas tree.

I’ve been a Modern Family fan for a while now, I just love everything about the show. The mockumentary style of filming, bombshell Gloria, Manny’s wisdom beyond his years, Luke’s stupid remarks, Phil’s dad jokes. And Cam. Oh dear Cam… And what I think I love most is that I don’t really have a favorite character in the show, I just like the whole happy dysfunctional family.

Modern Family

In season 4, Haley goes off to college, Jay turns 65 while Gloria is expecting their first baby, Cam becomes a music teacher and Mitchell becomes a stay at home dad. A recipe for disaster/comedy if there ever was one.

While I’m on the subject of Modern Family, I thought it would be nice to share some trivia! Here goes…
