As the daylight hours grow shorter and the outdoor landscape bleaker, we find the winter months to be the perfect time to curl up on the couch and catch up on some of the amazing stories being told on television. We asked you, what are you watching? Here’s what you are saying.
Judy Mae Kamp Rodgers – Greenleaf (Oprah Winfrey Network)
It tells about a preacher and his family from Memphis, Tennessee. I like it because it shows you how a preacher and his family lives. I hope you watch it.
Dennis Stroot – The Andy Griffith Show (TV Land)
I’m watchin' the Andy Griffith Show. Because moving to Paducah reminds me a little of Mayberry! Yeah!
Amy Williams – Game of Thrones (HBO)
I watch Game of Thrones because it is a very intricate story of intrigue and the human condition. It is historical fantasy and delves into many different topics about how humans respond to difficulty. And because Kit Harrington is gorgeous.
Nichole Reigle – The Flash & Supergirl (The CW)
My 10 year old daughter has me totally absorbed with The Flash and Supergirl!
James Collins – Tales From the Tour Bus (Cinemax)
The show is part animated, part live action, but all based on the first-hand recollections of some of the wildest country music artists such as George Jones, Johnny Paycheck, Jerry Lee Lewis, and more. It can be funny, shocking, and surprisingly very touching. It is a study of the tragic figure. The key quote for the series comes in the first episode: “There’s nothing worse than a hillbilly with a hit record.”
Cathy Elliot – This is Us (NBC)
I love the thought provoking and tug-your-heartstrings story.
Mark Ryan – The Fosters (Freeform)
I really love The Fosters. That's their last name and ironically they are foster parents. The show displays an amazing amount of diversity—a lesbian biracial couple with several foster kids, one of them being gay. It's a wonderful show, and it's nice to see how they face so many challenges as they move forward in their lives.
Todd Holloman – Twin Peaks: The Return (Showtime)
It left my head spinning, my heart aching, and brain reeling in the best possible way. One of the defining works of art of my lifetime.
Maurie McGarvey – Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency (BBC America)
Because it is brilliant and bizarre . . . mostly brilliant. Wait, mostly bizarre. And absolutely hilarious.
Robert Carter – Ozark (Netflix)
I'm watching it because it is absolutely amazing. Laura Linney and Jason Bateman are fantastic. Their characters help create a perfect blend of drama, suspense, and deliciously dark humor. If you're not watching it, stop everything you are doing, and start it immediately.
Adrienne Asbell – People of Earth (TBS)
The humor is very dry, but the show is also kinda silly. Plus it has aliens! The acting and comedy are superb. I like shows that are not rooted in reality. My job is serious enough. I want to escape when I watch TV.
Erileigh Conwell – Penny Dreadful (Showtime/Netflix)
Sadly the series has ended but still streaming on Netflix. A really beautiful show as far as coloring, set design ,and costuming and a very unique meshing of classic horror literature to create a suspenseful, entirely new story!
Debra Jo – Chicago Fire, Chicago PD (NBC)
I’m addicted to the characters and storyline!
