One thing that the Mr. and I really enjoy doing together is renting TV shows on Netflix. We love to crack a bottle a wine and watch a few back-to-back episodes on our giant TV with surround sound (the Mr.'s baby).
What we've watched
We watched 5 seasons of The Office on Netflix.
We quit watching The Office this year, half-way through season 6, because, in our opinion, it got dumb. Sorry, current Office fans!
We watched 4 seasons of It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia on Netflix. LOVE. THAT. SHOW. I know it can be crude and not-PC, but it's SO funny. We're super excited that season 5 is on Netflix in September!
Also, we watched all 9 seasons of The X-Files. Don't judge us for being geeks, ok?
Although, I quit watching someplace in Season 8, because the show really jumped the shark toward the end.
What we're currently watching
We finally jumped on the Mad Men bandwagon and started watching Season 1. Despite all the cheating, I really like it! We'll definitely be renting more Mad Men soon.
What's up next
Obviously more Always Sunny and Mad Men.
Also, maybe Dexter, Season 4. We watched Seasons 1-3 of Dexter back when I had Showtime. But the Mr. quit half-way through Season 3 because he hated that Dexter and Rita were getting married and having a baby. I'm trying to convince him to rent Season 4 with me because apparently Rita dies in the last episode.
We're also going to rent the 1990s cult-classic, Twin Peaks.
I'm also trying to convince the Mr. that The West Wing is not liberal propaganda and that we should start renting those (even though I watched many of them live in the late 1990s/early 2000s.) So far I've gotten a "maybe" out of him.
Also, I've been watching Friday Night Lights and How I Met Your Mother on my own on DVR and borrowed DVDs -- But I've been unable to convince the Mr. that they are not "girl shows."
What TV shows do you and your husband/significant other love to watch together?
