One of my favorite shows to watch and rewatch is Modern Family. It follows three different families who are all connected, and they live in a suburb area in Southern California. It is sort of like The Office but more subtle, and in my opinion, much funnier.

As I mentioned, the show follows three families. The first family is Jay, his wife Gloria and their son Manny. The second family is Claire, who is daughter of Jay. In her family is her husband Phil and their three kids: Luke, Hailey, and Alex. In the third family, there is Mitchell, who is Jays son, his husband Cam and their daughter Lily.

While these are the main characters, they do have other regular characters that you will also learn about and will be connected to the family. It is a pretty long show though, so just be ready to binge it all. I recommend watching this over summer or winter break as this show does have eleven seasons, with each season having 20-22 episodes each.

While it does sound like a long show, the humor in it totally makes up for it. My favorite character in this show is Phil Dunphy. In my opinion, he is the funniest character. But all the characters in this show are funny and have their moments. I know one way to watch the show, and the way I stream it, is on HULU. Another platform to stream it on would be Peacock. While you do get some ads while watching it on here, I think they’re worth it.

In the end you will be wanting more. It is super funny and heartwarming. You see the characters grow and you will be crying at the end, and in the middle. You get to see their growth as characters and it truly warms your heart.

I hope you guys watch and enjoy the show as much as I do.


I’ve reached that age where I think back to my childhood and realize that I never got any closure for any show I ever watched. I was a no cable kid. I watched cartoons using an antenna my family bought from the flea market and everything was perfect in the world.

Everything was perfect until Cartoon Network, Nickelodeon, and Disney Channel switched over to cable only. Due to this, there were a lot of shows that I only knew the start of and I never got to the conclusion for: Adventure Time, Yu-gi-oh 5Ds, Ben 10, The Amazing World of Gumball, Chowder, Gravity Falls, Pokemon, etc. Due to being a child, involved in many different after school programs, I could only catch random episodes of these series. Nothing lines up, but I could tell that some of these series had greater overarching stories that I wanted to get invested into, but couldn’t.

Now as an adult with money to spend on streaming services, I can watch all these cartoons in order. I got lost in the Adventure Time series and was changed as a human when I finished the whole series four months ago. This post isn’t about that show, as that show and my thoughts on that show would require a 40 episode podcast to truly express my feelings on the topic.

Today, I want to talk about what I’m currently watching: Regular Show. Regular Show made me mad as a kid. For those that don’t know, Regular Show is a show about a Blue Bird and his Raccoon friend that work at a park. They are offered free lodge and get paid to work at this park. Each episode revolves around the two main characters finding ways to slack off at work and getting punished by supernatural circumstances and beings for their decisions.

This show made me furious as a kid because they were making the wrong choice in life EVERY TIME. Even my 12 year old mind knew that they were making the wrong choices. It made me so mad that I grew to dislike Regular Show and started doing other things with my time when it came on.

As an adult, I was convinced to give it another shot. I started from the beginning, and to my surprise, the series has aged very well. Early episodes were very episodic. Something world ending would happen, but no mention of it would come in subsequent episodes. It offered a lot of laughs and sometimes it’s comforting to watch after coming back home from a long day.

In seasons 3 and 4, Regular Show started introducing continuity. One of the characters from the early Regular Show started coming back. Events that happened before would have consequences in later in the show. Towards the start of Season 6, Regular Show started introducing grown topics such as death, infidelity, and how to react when your ex is in the same room as your current partner. It’s hard to watch, but it also makes you stronger to watch these segments.

I am still actively watching this series. It saddens me that there’s two seasons left for me to watch, but I’m excited to see how they end such a goofy show as a Regular Show.


Hey there! Have you ever had that one show that completely hooks you from the first episode and doesn’t let go until the very end? For me, that show is Money Heist (La Casa de Papel). I can’t help but rave about it every chance I get, and here’s why.

First off, the storyline is just incredible. The plot revolves around a group of robbers, led by this genius mastermind called the Professor, who pull off these insanely well-planned heists on the Royal Mint of Spain and later, the Bank of Spain. From the get-go, you’re plunged into this world of high tension and constant twists. Just when you think you’ve figured out what’s going to happen next, the show throws a curveball. It was that unpredictability that kept me on the edge of my seat, episode after episode.

But what really makes Money Heist stand out for me were the characters. They’re so well-developed and multi-dimensional. Take Tokyo, for example—she’s bold and impulsive, yet you see these vulnerable sides to her that make you root for her. And the Professor? He’s this brilliant, strategic mind but also has this deeply emotional, human side. Every character had a backstory that was rich and compelling, which made their journey so engaging. I found myself getting emotionally invested in their fates, cheering for them even when they’re doing something completely illegal.

Then there’s the thematic depth of the show. Money Heist isn’t just about the thrill of the heist. It dived into issues like economic inequality and the fight against oppression. These were universal themes that resonate deeply, making the show not just entertaining but also thought-provoking. It made you reflect on society and justice, which is pretty powerful for a TV show.

The production quality is top-notch, too. The cinematography was gorgeous, and the use of music is spot on. I mean, “Bella Ciao” has practically become an anthem because of this show. The red jumpsuits and Salvador Dalí masks became iconic—they even become symbols of rebellion in real life.

Lastly, what I loved about Money Heist is the community it built. There was something special about being part of a global fanbase, all sharing theories, excitement, and heartbreak over the same show. It was a shared experience that adds another layer of enjoyment.

So yeah, Money Heist is my all time favorite show. It was a rollercoaster ride that I never wanted to get off. If you haven’t seen it yet, you absolutely should—it might just become your favorite too.
