If you know us at all, you know we are just overflowing with advice and suggestions for you.... Read this, wear these, they will look great on you, try this recipe, go easy on yourself, etc.
Today is no different, we are telling you.... If you haven't watched these shows yet.... DROP EVERYTHING and get to the television.
A little while ago we started getting all these tweets from TWH followers asking if we had checked out Stranger Things and then we started getting texts from friends in the middle of the night... You need to watch this show you will LOVE IT..
Then Erin & Tony started watching it and they flipped out and loved it so of course Tom and I had to see what was going on with this social phenomenon of a show.
Blown away is putting it lightly, Stranger Things has everything that you could ever want in a 80's nostalgic thriller.... Amazing adolescent characters that are smart AND funny, bikes, small town cops, fantastic music and costume, suspense and of course.... Winona Ryder & Matthew Modine.
It's hard to say too much with out giving anything away so we will just say this, the casting is fantastic, the writing is fantastic, the Duffer Brother's who create and direct are fantastic and for sure the kid who plays no teeth is fantastic!
It's a watch more then one episode a night sow for sure...
The next television obsession we have right now is The Night Of on HBO. Sunday nights can not come fast enough around our house these days.
It feels almost old fashioned to have to wait for your show every week instead of being able to watch them whenever you feel like it... But this show is worth the wait.
A limited series (we think thats just a fancy way of saying mini-series) that explores the night of a horrible crime and the fall out from the investigation should get a Golden Globe for casting alone.
Every single actor in this show is talented, well thought out and real. Have you ever watched something and every actor that comes on screen you find yourself thinking.. "Oh man, I love that guy" It's like they took every great actor from every show over the last 10-15 years and cast them. Did anyone else forget how much they loved John Turturro? Did anyone else never know they loved Riz Ahmed?
There is only one more episode left and we still have no freaking clue what really happened the night of the crime. My husband and I are full of theories but I can not wait to see how the writers wrap it up this Sunday. Although I will be sad to see these characters go.
Hurry up and binge watch it quick before Sunday... But if you figure it out don't tweet us any spoilers!
Now you have your homework.... Just in time for those early back to school bedtimes. Treat yourself to some amazing story telling.
XOXO- Mieke & Erin
