TV Shows I'm Obsessed With Lately #3

 
The Bold Type is such a fun show about three young women who work for a Cosmo-like magazine - one is a secretary, one is a social media coordinator, and one is a writer.  It's pretty cool to see some behind-the-scenes stuff about how magazines are run, and of course, there's always lots of personal drama as well!


Based on a novel by James Patterson, Zoo is about a group of people who investigate an outbreak of violent animal attacks around the globe.  We've been binge-watching the first two seasons on Netflix and, yeah, it gets a little outlandish at times, but it's so addictive!

 
It's no secret that I'm a huge fan of disaster stories, so when I heard about this summer series about an asteroid heading towards earth, I knew I had to watch it.  Government conspiracies, shady reporters, and confusing science abound - but if you suspend disbelief for awhile, it's actually a pretty fun show!


Are you watching any of these shows?  What have you been watching lately?

  3. Why have I never heard of these? Probably because I only watch Bravo. Definitely adding Zoo to my list!

  4. Zoo! It's on my to watch list... But I hardly watch TV so ...

    Lately hubby and I are still watching Heartland and I'm putting The Voice on when I'm cooking or something just to have something on in the background.

    I do want to catch up on Arrow and Supergirl one day though!

    1. My husband loves the CW shows; I watch Supergirl with him, but the others are more background noise for me, unfortunately!

  6. The Bold Type is one of my top new shows. I did a post on the show a while ago, because I love the friendship that exists between these three women, and also, that the show puts women's issues front and center.

    1. Yes, they definitely aren't afraid of talking about big issues, and I love that the girls meet in the Closet every time they need to discuss something!

  9. I haven't heard of The Bold Type before, but it looks like the kind of show I'd like. The magazine setting sounds awesome, and I love me some good drama. I've been tempted to watch Zoo, but I haven't gotten around to it yet. I'm not too surprised to hear it's outlandish but sometimes you just need that kind of show in your life haha

  10. Several of my friends keep telling me I would love The Bold Type so I'm glad to see it on your list. I remember seeing previews for it when I used to watch Pretty Little Liars and thought it looked good. I'll have to check it out.

  11. I love disaster shows/movies/books too!! Salvation sounds intense! I also probably would love The Bold Type. If it ever comes to Netflix, I'm IN.

  13. I really needed this post! My husband and I recently cancelled our cable. We purchase shows through itunes instead, but without the constant barrage of commercials, sometimes it is hard to know what new shows we want to watch! As such, I hadn't heard of any of these! I definitely need to check out the Bold Type, it sounds great!

  14. My mom and I watched a couple episodes of Salvation, but neither of us kept up with it once I went to college! I'll have to keep that one in mind to watch later. I liked it, but it was a bit hard to believe anything. :D I've been wanting to watch The Bold Type for quite a while now, and I'm definitely in the demographic they are shooting for!

    1. Salvation was a good summer show, nothing to take too seriously, just something to watch. The Bold Type was so good!
