What I've been watching

Spring TV season is coming to a close and we have been enjoying the season finales of some of our favorite shows.

I really like all of the Marvel movies for the Avengers/ Captain America/ Iron Man, etc.  And since I enjoy those movies, Ben and I decided to try out Agents of SHIELD at the beginning of the season.  It took a few episodes, but it got really good (especially the end of the season).  The show ties into the movies and I have really enjoyed this new show.  I am looking forward to the premier next season, as the season finale was really, really good.

CASTLE is another good show on ABC.  We have watched this show since the beginning and have really gotten into it.  The season finale was great and I cannot wait to see what happens next season.  I hope Castle and Beckett get to have their great love story, but who knows what the upcoming season holds...

NCIS is probably our favorite show.  It is on CBS and has been the number one show for I think 4 or 5 years in a row.  I really, really miss Ziva.  Ellie is okay, but her eyebrows are too dark for her really blonde hair and I am having a hard time getting over that fact ignoring it.  I really liked the intro to NCIS: New Orleans and will be watching that in the fall.

* Side note about NCIS*
Ben tells me that Mark Harmon, Michael Weatherly, and Cote de Pablo have the highest Q Ratings in the business.

We have been binge watching How I met your Mother on Netflix.  We are on season 7.  We had to turn off all technology during the last few weeks of the show this year because it ended and we didn't want to know what happened.  I am excited to find out (we are probably the only people in America that don't know what happened).  This show has been great to watch and the writers do a fantastic job of carrying over jokes and little nuances.  The writers on this show are great!  I cannot state that enough.


We saw Captain America: The Winter Soldier today.  It was really good!  I had been putting off seeing it because I don't think Scarlett Johansson is a very good actor and I didn't want her to ruin the movie.  Well, I was wrong- this movie was great and she did a decent job in it.

Other movies I might want to see this summer-

I am also looking for summer TV recommendations.  We need to catch up with the new Burn Notice episodes on Netflix and I am hoping that Pretty Little Liars is coming back for a summer run.  Anyone have any good suggestions for summer shows?
