{SavourTheSeason} Day 19: What is your Favourite Thing to Curl up in a Blanket and Watch?


Hubby and I love to laugh together, so lately we've been savouring the longer, cooler nights by curling up under a favourite blankie with a cup of hot cocoa and watching episodes of Community together.  (On our laptop, because we don't actually own a television...)

 We've laughed so hard that we're lucky nobody has laughed hot chocolate out of their nose yet!

It got me wondering, what are you curling up under blankies to watch lately?  Seen any good movies you want to recommend?  Cheesy low-budget television shows? What about fun documentaries? Or maybe you're reading a good book this fall you think we'd all enjoy?   I'd love to read all of your recommendations! 

[This is day 19 in a 31 day series about autumn.  Admittedly, it's kind of a cop-out post.  I'll be back tomorrow with more fun autumn-y crafts and ideas and recipes.  Happy Friday everybody!]

  1. I was just introduced to Community. It's so good. I think even better with that hot chocolate! Enjoy. I've been spreading your wisdom to my friends. Thank you.

  2. Tonight Brian and I just watched The Middle. It always makes us laugh. We also enjoy the drama/ mystery of the new Elementary and The Arrow. BTW, I've been loving your autumn posts!

  3. That's kinda funny, the people at the movie rental place didn't believe us when we said we didn't own a tv, and here you guys do the same thing we do . . . I'm not alone!

  4. We own a tv but we do not have cable so we are unable to get any channels. We just plug the laptop onto the tv for a bigger picture.
    I love not having a cable bill and not having to watch commercials. Especially this year, with the U.S. election and all.

  5. No kidding, Kelly! We're huge Community fans. We've been rewatching it all on Netflix (we have tv, but no satellite or cable). Cool. Coolcoolcool.

  6. Community is one of my favorite shows! My new favorote is Revolution. It makes you think "what if". I read a great book series a few months ago called "A Shepards Heart". It's a Christian romance set in the 1800's. I highly recommend it. A great read for those cold windy days ahead.

  7. Community is great! Hubby and I LAUGH at Up All Night. It's stinkin' hilarious! My current personal fave show (its in its second season now) is Parenthood. Brand new - Chicago Fire is pretty good! We like the Mentalist and Elementary too, but those is on CBS, which is almost impossible to see online

  8. We love to watch Psych and Eureka together. Warehouse 13 is a favorite too. I will have to check out Community! Netflix is a wonderful thing!

  9. My Husband and I love to watch "Once upon a Time" and "Rick Steve's Europe". Those are our lay in bed and cuddle shows. But for laughs I like Psych and (don't judge me) Phineas and Ferb....the kids can get in on the laughs too! As far as good books go I just read the Uglies series and really enjoyed it. I also suggest the time continuum series by Madeline L'Engle who is my favorite author of all time!! Happy Cuddling people!!

  10. I looove to watch Downton Abbey...it's an addiction i tell you.
    One night per week is surely pizza+Castle night.
    We also really enjoy The Bing Bang theory and watching over and over and over again Friends

    1. ME too!!! Even my husband got addicted to it, and he's not super into BBC dramas. (Although, I think maybe SECRETLY he is, and just doesn't want to admit it!) I can not wait for the 3rd season to come out this winter!

      I also really really liked the BBC series Lark Rise to Candleford.

  11. The Hubs and I don't have a TV either, we watch Netflix online :) So glad there are others like us lol! We aren't big TV watchers, but we recently saw Dark Shadows. I was leery about a vampire movie, but thought it was perfect for Halloweeny-time. It was cute. Light hearted, poking fun at all the vampire myths, and did not take itself too seriously. Long story short, the main character is a vampire who has been locked away since the 1700's and wakes up in 1972....so it is all about him getting used to modern society, and all our "sorcery"...or ya know...tv's. I am not a big vampire movie person, but this was really cute, and great for the Halloween season. (Grown ups only though, there are a few racey scenes, funny at the same time, but def. pg-13)We laughed alot.

    1. Oooh, that sounds good! I don't normally like vampire movies either (or mummies, or zombies or ghosts...) but that does sound funny. Thanks for the suggestion, Miranda!

    1. Arrested Development is Hilarious!!

    2. I LOVE Parks & Rec. It's my favorit among The Office, 30 Rock, and Community. We watch it on Hulu.

      I also just read a good book called "The Thirteenth Tale". It has a classic setting of antique bookstores, the foggy/mysterious moors & mansions of northern England - perfect to snuggle and read on a cold, Octorber night!

  14. Thanks for the recommendation! We've been wanting to find a good show. My favorite recent watch on Netflix is Jim Gaffigan: Mr. Universe. It is a pretty clean comedy show and we were laughing so hard! Have a good weekend!

  16. Have you seen Up All Night? It is super funny.

  17. Community is great! One of my favorite movies right now is a Canadian made movie that just came out on iTunes for rent and buy. It's called Lloyd the Conqueror and it's a comedy about trying to get through college and what you would do to pass a class, it involves LARPing (live action role playing). It is very funny but it does have mature language and isn't for someone who is easily offended.

  18. I've been enjoying watching old Family Ties episodes on Netflix lately. We also enjoy Star Trek, 30 Rock, and Futurama. We have a TV, but no cable or satellite. We find we can watch everything we want to see online.

  19. I am so loving this series. Your life is so rich and full; thank you for sharing it with all of us.

  20. We never miss 'The Middle'. Too funny! King of Queens is pretty funny, too.And I'm always up for any BBC Jane Austen movie. My favorite is "Pride and Prejudice" with Colin Firth. Too bad it's over 6 hours long! I usually have to watch it over several days.

  21. My hubby and I recently rented a Canadian movie called "Gunless" starring Paul Gross which we quite thoroughly enjoyed. Beautifully filmed in Alberta and very funny. It's a Western Comedy about an American gangster/outlaw who comes up to Canada, challenges a guy to a gun duel but nobody else in the town owns a gun because it's Canada. Lots of quirky amusing bits, and it was fairly clean as well. We laughed and laughed and laughed :)
