This time of year determines if you are the Netflix and Chill type of girl or a Hulu and Commitment kind of girl...or like me- a wine and candy corn single mom girl. Waiting for the kids to go to bed, so I can watch all my "bad" shows. Full of vice, scandal and probably not far off from the Reality Television Shows are afraid to show, these are the ones I found this year.
- Mistresses. This is showing on Hulu. Broadcasted on ABC, it describes itself as, "a provocative and thrilling drama about the scandalous lives of a sexy and sassy group of four girlfriends, each on her own path to self-discovery." Make sure the kids are in bed for this one, because it is lots of sex. The men are hot.
- Dirty Sexy Money. This one I think may be over but the seasons are on Hulu. Starring Donald Sutherland and one of the Baldwin boys, it is described as, "The Darling family's obscene wealth and enormous power make them easy targets for their rivals, enemies and tabloids. Patriarch Tripp Darling uses his money and influence to shield his five adult children from the prying eyes of the world. As the Darlings' reluctant personal lawyer, Nick George has barely begun to discover the legal and illegal needs of the Darlings." For some reason, it reminds me of the Hiltons meets the Kennedys with a modern spin.
- Devious Maids Another one on Lifetime, Hulu brings us this serious. I am not going to lie, at first I was turned off by it because I thought it was stereotypical of the Latin community. It features a group of maids that are hired in Beverly Hills. However, as I got into the show, I am loving it- so scandalous. The first pilot episode starts off with the women turning to each other for support when their friend and fellow maid Flora is brutally murdered at the home of her employers, Evelyn and Adrian Powell at one of the largest society events of the year.
- The Mindy Project. I love this series; I can't believe it took five seasons to find it. Described as , " A single-camera comedy, starring Mindy Kaling, that follows a skilled OB/GYN navigating the tricky waters of both her personal and professional life, as she pursues her dreams of becoming the perfect woman, finding the perfect man and getting her perfect romantic comedy ending."
- GCB. So sad this was only one season, this series was based on a book by Kim Gatlin, a devastating divorce sends Amanda Vaughn and her teenage children back to her hometown, where she must face her past. Once the queen of mean, Amanda has changed her ways but it is unclear whether her former classmates are willing to let bygones be bygones or take the opportunity to kick her while she is down. Find this treasure on Hulu.
Unfortunately none of these will ever replace the Sex and the City series.
