What I’m Watching as of Now

What I'm Watching as of Now

It seems just a little while ago I was left with next to nothing to watch. I’m very picky when it comes to TV shows, but all at once a found myself with a few options. πŸ™‚ Today I’m going to be sharing what I’ve been watching lately. Look out for a few minor spoilers!

The Flash: Season Five

Plane scene

We don’t have regular TV so we wait to watch The Flash on Netflix. We just finished season five! There have been some complaints about this season, but I actually really enjoyed it overall.

Nora excited to go on a mission with her dad

I especially liked Nora, Iris and Barry’s daughter from the future.Β No, we did not name our cat after Iris in The Flash. This season was very unique because of Nora. I also appreciated the villain, Cicada, but was slightly disappointed that he was just in the first part of the season.

Ralph and Barry stun the enemies

This season didn’t have much that we needed to skip either, plus some pretty cool action scenes that didn’t include super speed which was refreshing.

The Flash is the only superhero show we watch because it is one of the cleanest. That doesn’t mean it is perfect, but it is entertaining, and there was not much to skip in this season.

Batman The Animated Series

Batman the Animated Series, Harley is rescued

Well, I finally finished Batman the Animated Series! It was a whole lot of fun, and I enjoyed it thoroughly. We actually got another free trial to DC Universe (oh yeah, cheating the system) with my sister’s email so we could watch some of the episodes again.

Batman Mask of the Phantasm, Joker’s dramatic flair

We were also able to watch two of the movies that connected to the series: SubzeroΒ about Mr. Freeze and Mask of the Phantasm about Batman’s origin. They were both great, but I think I preferred Mask of the Phantasm which surprised me showing explicit death since the main show stayed away from that.

Batman the Animated Series, Bane vs. Batman and Robin

I downloaded the DC universe app on my phone, and my sister and I were even able to watch BTAS after we had put the kids to bed for a babysitting job. My sister wanted to keep watching them, but we ultimately stopped to save my phone’s battery. XD

Star Wars: The Clone Wars

Bossk defends young Boba from “Rako Hardeen”

Speaking of Batman the Animated Series, Star Wars: The Clone Wars, was taken offΒ  Netflix just a few days before I had finished Batman. Netflix probably did this because Disney is releasing its streaming service this year. I just hope my favorite show will be on there with all the seasons.

Hardcase’s excitement on the battlefield

I did not watch this show when it first came out, but I saw it on Netflix a while back and basically said, “Oooh! Look, a Star Wars show!” We stuck with it even with the not so stellar first seasons, but it eventually got so intense that my brothers stopped watching.

Darth Maul challenges Pre Visla to a fight

My sister and I finished it and are both stoked for the final season. We know some of what is going to happen by watching the “unfinished episodes” on YouTube. Meanwhile, I’ve been getting Clone Wars DVDs from the library. XD

Ninjago: Season 11

Jay’s oblivion

Ok, so I like cartoons. We are currently watching Ninjago Season 11 on YouTube. It is downright hilarious and gives me some definite season one vibes. I literally laughed out loud multiple times.

Ninja looking for important work to do

When Ninjago was first around my sibs and I watched a little bit of it and were young enough to get scared by the Overlord. Years later we came back to it more mature. I love the entire team aspect of it and that every viewer most likely has a favorite Ninja.

Cole’s earth powers

Ninjago has been around a while now, but I’m glad it keeps going because there is still so much to learn about the characters. It is epic and fully entertaining with every moment. Ninjago lifts my spirits.

MONK

Scared Adrian Monk

Monk is a detective show that my parents watched when I was growing up. My mom found the first season at the library and offered for us girls to watch it. We did, and we loved it. πŸ˜€ Soon we found all the seasons on Amazon Prime and have just finished season three.

Monk vs. nature

Adrian Monk has many phobias as a man with OCD (obsessive-compulsive disorder) some of which include germs, elevators, and milk. He tries for the entire show to figure out the murder of his wife, Trudy, in between other cases in each episode.

Monk baby kiss
Adrian doesn’t mind Tommy’s kiss

The characters are awesome from Captain Leland Stottlemeyer, Randy Disher, Sherona Flemming (Adrian’s Nurse) and Natalie Teeger (later replacing Sherona as Monk’s nurse for most of the show). The show can be very funny, intense, and sweet. Adrian has a good heart and a brilliant mind. He changes little by little throughout the show.

  1. I absolutely LOVE Batman: The Animated Series and The Clone Wars. I’ve heard of Monk and The Flash before and they sound like really good shows. I’ll have to try them sometime. My all-time favorite TV show is the reboot Battlestar Galactica, which is a sci-fi drama and I would totally recommend it although there are parts where it is TOTALLY inappropriate and super dark (it’s on Amazon Prime, btw). I also love Longmire, which is a Netflix original Western cop show and again it’s a little dark. I enjoy a lot of light-hearted shows, too. NCIS is a really good detective show on Netflix. There’s a lot of great chemistry and Tony DiNozzo and Abby Sciuto have me laughing a lot. I also like The Librarians (not on Netflix, I’m not entirely sure where we watch it) and it has a tiny amount of swearing but is mostly appropriate and it’s about a group of highly intelligent people who have to fight magical crime. Episode 8 of season 1 is super creepy and I’d just skip it. Honestly, I think you would probably really enjoy Chuck. It’s on Amazon Prime and is about an average guy named Chuck Bartowski who’s good with computers and plays video games, and still lives with his older sister Ellie and her boyfriend who he calls Captain Awesome. Then Chuck’s old college buddy who’s secretly a spy sends Chuck all these hidden CIA and NSA files and they somehow downliad into Chuck’s brain so they send over a CIA agent named Sarah Walker and an NSA agent named John Casey to go undercover as Chuck’s handlers. It’s highly amusing and it can be a little violent and there’s a few bad words but there’s nothing worse than Iron Man. Sorry for that long comment, XD.

      1. My pleasure! I thought I was following you actually, but for some reason thought you were on a hiatus, lol. Turns out I just wasn’t getting notifications. (Oops, lol)
        By the way, are you into role-playing? I’ve always wanted to role-play The Flash, but I didn’t know anyone else who watched it. πŸ˜‰

      2. Now I’m wondering what other blogs I’m missing ’cause I’m not getting notifications πŸ˜‚
        It’s essentially just creating your own storylines within a fictional universe. You can play as an existing character, create your own, or just be yourself. Basically an organized way of fangirling. 😜

      3. Oh no! I hope you aren’t missing out on much! LOL
        Ah! Yes, that’s what I thought. Kind of like, un-scripted fanfic? Neat! Well, I’m not sure I will be able to do it, but thanks so much for the explanation, Nat. πŸ™‚

  2. These shows all look pretty good. I’m currently watching Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D, which I think you would totally love! You do have to watch certain Marvel movies before, but I’m sure you’ve seen the Avengers and the Winter Soldier. XD
